Q: You have done many collaborations with artists such as Leessang and Romantic Punch across many genre. Who have you enjoyed working with the most?
Kim Bada: I enjoyed working with Kim Jaejoong from JYJ. At first, I sent around 10 songs and asked him to choose from those 10 songs. When Jaejoong first asked for songs, I just went, “Oh, really?” and wrote them. Normally, song writers work on computers and arranged them perfectly before submitting them to big stars. But I just scribbled something on the paper at home, recorded what I thought, “oh! this sounds ok!” and sent them as messages. Still, he liked it. I was like, “Really? Can you do it? Can you really do this too?” and then send him arranged versions of the song, and Jaejoong loved it. I don’t know if he was tired that day, but he didn’t even look up and said, “yes, I really like it.” So I thought, ‘it must be really good then,” and he sang it. [T/N: that song is One Kiss, of course:D] Then he asked for another song, so I gave him a song titled “MINE” which became his title song for the album. It topped the charts in Japan, Germany and Thailand. It wasn’t only in Korea (laughs). Then, I thought to myself, “I really should get out of Korea” (laughs). It was an experiment of my song. I didn’t have to customize the song for him and did what I wanted to do. I made changes as I was recording as well. I asked him [Jaejoong] to try something different from what he used to do. I read from his interview later on that he felt like he was starting fresh from the start as a new artist.
