367. Let’s Get It

-DJ Hegotsound-

Heo, Won-jun 기자2017.09.06 17:07:48

          These days, it is easy to see students who put jobs, certificates and tests before their dreams, only to face the harsh reality of unemployment problems. Ha, Jin-young, who majors in Economics and Trade in KNU and works as a club DJ of VALV, chases his dream and studies at the same time. The KNU Times interviewed him so that readers can consider pursuing their own dreams.


Q1) How did you get interested in hip hop and DJing?
A1)
  I first became interested in hip hop through my friends. When I entered the army, I had enough time to search and listen to many new EDM (Electronic-Dance-Music) songs that I have been interested in since I was a high school student. After I finished my military service, I made up my mind to be an EDM DJ, but I could not pursue my dream because of practical obstacles at that time. I have a friend who likes hip hop songs and we usually listen to them and share our thoughts. I was attracted to the charm of hip hop because it can express various atmospheres contrary to EDM, which can express limited feelings.


Q2)Are there any particular reasons why you manage both studying and DJing at the same time?
A2) It is very tough for me to do both things and I could not understand why I should go to school at first. Because a DJ normally stays up late at night, I cannot sleep much and easily get tired, more than others do. However, I keep asking myself and I have discovered why I should study. First, I think it will be helpful for my future dream. I became interested in planning or designing some projects ranging from small things such as ‘Moveam’ (Movie-Beam, outdoor movie theater) when I was a member of a circle, to large things like urban renewal projects. All of these projects need knowledge and I can learn these things through my school programs. In addition, I want to prepare for the uncertain future. Another reason is college life, which gives a good opportunity to meet people in various fields.


Q3) What was your parents’ reaction when you said that you will be a DJ?
A3) My parents were worried because I wasn’t passionate about anything until I started DJing. They are surprised that I do DJing with fire in my eyes. I even did two part time jobs to buy musical equipment and build my own studio. After that, they acknowledged my endeavors, so they started to support me and encouraged me a lot.


Q4) Who is your role model?
A4) My role model is rapper Dok2. He adopted a latest Trap music from the USA and made a new trend in Korea. He sets up his own records rather join in the records of other people. There is lyric in his song, ‘I would not have any regrets if I died right now.’ I cannot imagine how he feels or how much he has accomplished. I hope to understand the meaning of this lyric one day.


Q5) What is your future plan and what do you want to say to KNU Times readers?
A5) I think there is no famous DJ crew right now in Korea, I want to make a DJ party crew based in Daegu with like-minded musicians. I want to recommend trying at least once to find your dreams. Then you can make up your mind whether to continue or not. Just aim for the bump!
