What inspired you to begin your musical journey?

We started because we wanted to tell the stories that we wanted to tell to an unspecified number of people.


우리가 전하고자 하는 이야기들을 불특정다수에게 전달하고 싶어서 시작을 하게됬습니다

 

What does ode's creative process consist of?

Rather than having a direct influence, we focus on indirect experiences through various media. We are making works.


우리는 직접적인 영향보단 영화나 뉴스등

여러 매체들을 통한 간접적인 경험을 위주로

작품들을 만들어 가고 있습니다.


 ¿Qué os inspiró para comenzar vuestra andadura musical?

Empezamos porque queríamos transmitir emociones a un gran número de personas.


Can you tell us about the "Colors" album? 

We wanted to talk about many things like the album name "colors."

As a result, hopeful and pessimistic messages coexist in this album.


앨범명 ‘colors’ 같이 여러 가지 이야기를 하고싶었고,

그로인해 희망적인 메시지와비관적인 메시지가 공존하는 앨범입니다.


¿Podéis hablarnos del álbum "Colors"? 

Queríamos hablar de muchas cosas como el nombre del álbum "colores".

Por ello, en este álbum conviven mensajes esperanzadores y pesimistas.

What is a funny moment that you remember? 

I was driving down the highway to film "Danger" for MBC Culture Concert. 

I found a rest area where spicy pork over rice was delicious, so I drove hard withstanding hunger. But the rest area didn't sell spicy pork rice anymore, so we all remember being in despair.

 

이번에 MBC 문화콘서트 '난장 촬영하러 고속도로를 운전해서 내려가던중

제육덮밥이 맛있다는 휴게소를 찾아서 배고픈걸 참고 열심히 운전했습니다.

그런데  휴게소에서 제육덮밥을 더이상 판매하지 않아서 저희 모두가 절망했던 기억이 있습니다.


 ¿Cuál es un momento divertido que recordáis? 

Estábamos conduciendo por la autopista para grabar "Danger" para el Concierto de Cultura de la MBC. 

Vimos un área de descanso donde la carne de cerdo picante sobre el arroz era deliciosa, así que condujimos rápido aguantando el hambre. Pero el área de descanso ya no vendía ese plato, fue desesperante.
