Jaejin works as an idol and a painter [Happy Together/2020.02.13]On February 14, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Jaejin, you paint. – I heard you had an exhibition too. / – Oh, right. I participate in a group exhibition every year. Recently, I had a solo exhibition for the first time. – That’s incredible. / – You are cool. I mostly do oil paintings. Completing one painting takes about three months at the very least. – Three months? / – I prepared for it for years. It’s a size 50 canvas. – Is it a portrait? / – Yes. A size 50 canvas is very big. – It’s 116cm long. / – Yes. – Isn’t that a photo? / – I thought it was a photo. I also thought it was a photo. – Did you actually paint it? / – That’s right. I thought it was a photo. I thought the one on the left was a photo. Do you sell your works as well? I know, I’m curious. “The Woman Lifting Up Her Skirt” got sold. The one on the right didn’t get sold. No, it didn’t. The thing is, portraits rarely get sold. You drew too many portraits. I can tell that the exhibition focused on portraits. Isn’t the woman in the painting sitting down? That’s right. Was it really necessary to omit the chair? (He is bothered by the lack of a chair.) – That’s right. / – She looks uncomfortable. She looks uncomfortable. Is that a punishment? She does look uncomfortable. In us laymen’s eyes, she looks uncomfortable. By the way, is there a reason why you paint your sister? Portraits are my specialty. It’s hard for an artist to find a subject matter. It was my first time to try oil paintings. It’s easy for me to draw someone close to me, my sister. I know her well. He doesn’t have to pay her. Don’t you want to paint SECHSKIES members? I do want to do that. (Do you want to paint SECHSKIES members?) We said we won’t give him our portrait rights. You are coldhearted. (He has the heart of a robot.) – It’s all business. / – There is no room for… They make us speechless. They put a stop to everything. There is no room for a heartwarming moment. Okay, I’m sorry. – Go ahead. / – Jiwon, would you allow it? I would allow it. I even made an offer once. What offer? I thought it would be nice for him to paint – the four of us / – That sounds nice. sitting around in our old age. – Make it an album jacket. / – That’s a good idea. I would like that. I see. I would like to draw the members because I have known them – for 23 years. / – That’s right. – Then you should leave out Suwon. / – No, no. I… (Suwon didn’t yield his portrait rights.) No, no. I… He stuttered. I bet SECHSKIES can’t forget about 1997.
