    Starting part 2 of my Q&A!
  • 0:03 - 0:09
    "Q. While doing your musical activities, did you naturally pick up on things like writing songs?"
  • 0:09 - 0:11
    Ah, okay.
  • 0:11 - 0:14
    All of us are self-taught musicians.
  • 0:14 - 0:21
    There's no other way but to do things yourself, even if you mess up.
  • 0:21 - 0:23
    We still think that now.
  • 0:23 - 0:25
    It's a repetition of that.
  • 0:25 - 0:32
    "Q. I have no self-confidence and have gotten pessimistic. How can I have confidence in myself?"
  • 0:35 - 0:37
    I see.
  • 0:37 - 0:42
    Not everyone is the type of person who's super confident in themselves.
  • 0:42 - 0:44
    People have many complexes about themselves,
  • 0:44 - 0:48
    And there are many times when you think you could do something better,
  • 0:48 - 0:51
    But you can try to improve yourself,
  • 0:51 - 1:00
    Or try to find out why people say something's good when you yourself don't think it is.
  • 1:00 - 1:06
    I think it's about having the strength to acknowledge yourself.
  • 1:07 - 1:10
    You might not know what to do if that lessens,
  • 1:10 - 1:16
    But as for me, I've been a drummer for 14 years,
  • 1:17 - 1:19
    And the more I do it,
  • 1:19 - 1:21
    The more profound it gets.
  • 1:21 - 1:24
    There's no endgoal at all.
  • 1:26 - 1:32
    Because that's how I've been spending my life, I do lose confidence,
  • 1:32 - 1:39
    And I've always played believing that there are sounds that only I can make.
  • 1:39 - 1:40
    But...
  • 1:40 - 1:45
    I absolutely think each and every person has their own kind of charm.
  • 1:45 - 1:50
    Don't hate or blame yourself.
  • 1:50 - 1:56
    "Q. I've been obsessed with Honshibori Chu-Hi [alcoholic drinks] recently. RINA, do you have evening drinks at home?"
  • 1:56 - 2:00
    I don't drink at home at all.
  • 2:00 - 2:02
    Occasionally,
  • 2:02 - 2:06
    When we have after-parties or when we go out to eat,
  • 2:06 - 2:12
    I'll have one umeshu soda,
  • 2:12 - 2:13
    But I'm weak with alcohol.
  • 2:13 - 2:16
    Well, rather than weak, I'm not good with it.
  • 2:17 - 2:19
    So yeah, I don't [have an evening drink].
  • 2:20 - 2:24
    "Q. I'd like to do band activities in Japan. Can you give me any advice?"
  • 2:25 - 2:28
    This is from someone in South Korea.
  • 2:29 - 2:34
    I see. So they formed a band in Korea and they want to do activities in Japan.
  • 2:35 - 2:37
    At this point in time,
  • 2:38 - 2:41
    I think it's pretty difficult to go between countries.
  • 2:42 - 2:50
    We go overseas every year to play shows, which is important for us,
  • 2:52 - 2:55
    And instead of creating a different side to us shown only to overseas audiences,
  • 2:55 - 3:04
    We let people overseas see what we've completed in Japan. That's our stance.
  • 3:04 - 3:12
    It may be better to first solidify your style in your home country.
  • 3:13 - 3:14
    Good luck.
  • 3:14 - 3:15
    Next one.
  • 3:15 - 3:20
    "Q. I've fallen for someone of the same sex for the first time. What should I do?"
  • 3:21 - 3:29
    People fall in love someone because of the person they are, not because of their gender,
  • 3:29 - 3:30
    No matter what kind of love it is.
  • 3:30 - 3:34
    First try talking to them and ask for their contact info,
  • 3:34 - 3:36
    Make plans to go out to eat,
  • 3:36 - 3:38
    Find common topics,
  • 3:38 - 3:41
    And shorten the distance little by little.
  • 3:42 - 3:46
    I think it's the same as with anyone else.
  • 3:46 - 3:49
    I hope it works out!
  • 3:49 - 3:54
    "Q. What should I do when someone forces their sense of values onto me?"
  • 3:55 - 3:58
    When your ways of thinking differ?
  • 3:59 - 4:00
    Well...
  • 4:00 - 4:03
    Make sure to listen to what that person's saying,
  • 4:03 - 4:06
    And be like, "This is what I think."
  • 4:06 - 4:10
    Perhaps it's better to mention how you have a different way of thinking.
  • 4:10 - 4:14
    Even if the other person denies your opinion, don't deny theirs.
  • 4:14 - 4:16
    Be like, "I see,"
  • 4:16 - 4:20
    And make sure to state your own opinions too.
  • 4:21 - 4:28
    "Q. I've had a complex about my body hair for a long time. I'm wondering if men should remove their body hair as well."
  • 4:29 - 4:33
    A lot of men are removing their body hair these days.
  • 4:33 - 4:37
    If it's something you yourself want to do, then go ahead.
  • 4:37 - 4:43
    If it'll help you feel more self-confident, I think it's better if you do it.
  • 4:43 - 4:50
    "Q. Do you like cake? I work at a bakery and want to make your favorite cake."
  • 4:50 - 4:52
    This is from someone in France.
  • 4:53 - 4:56
    That makes me happy. A bakery? How nice.
  • 4:56 - 4:57
    That's lovely.
  • 4:58 - 5:00
    What kind of cake do I like?
  • 5:02 - 5:05
    I often choose chocolate cakes.
  • 5:05 - 5:07
    I've really liked them since I was a kid.
  • 5:07 - 5:12
    I also like fruit tarts.
  • 5:12 - 5:20
    "Q. SCANDAL gives me energy every day. RINA, what is most important for you when playing a concert?"
  • 5:20 - 5:22
    That makes me happy. Thank you!
  • 5:22 - 5:25
    I wonder... Maybe going all out!
  • 5:26 - 5:31
    Expressing myself using my entire being.
  • 5:31 - 5:32
    Perhaps.
  • 5:33 - 5:38
    "Q. I'm 20 years old and have never had a boyfriend. I'm worried about my prospects in the future too."
  • 5:39 - 5:41
    I think that's completely fine.
  • 5:42 - 5:45
    One will appear at some point,
  • 5:46 - 5:50
    And since it's never too late to fall in love,
  • 5:50 - 5:53
    Don't feel rushed. It's completely fine.
  • 5:54 - 6:00
    "Q. RINA, are you the type of person who thrives on praise? Or are you the type that's driven by regret?"
  • 6:02 - 6:07
    I was once the type to be driven by regret,
  • 6:07 - 6:11
    But I'm not anymore. I get hurt very easily.
  • 6:11 - 6:14
    I'm pretty weak in that respect.
  • 6:14 - 6:15
    I want to be praised.
  • 6:16 - 6:19
    But it's normal to want to work hard after being told that it's okay.
  • 6:20 - 6:26
    Well, I'm grateful when someone calmly points out that something could be better if done in a certain way,
  • 6:27 - 6:32
    But I started to think that maybe I'm not the type that grows when I'm told something I don't like.
  • 6:32 - 6:34
    Please praise me.
  • 6:34 - 6:38
    "Q. Did you have any worries about being a band when you first started?"
  • 6:40 - 6:43
    None at all.
  • 6:43 - 6:46
    We didn't have time to worry.
  • 6:46 - 6:48
    It really was sink or swim.
  • 6:48 - 6:50
    We weren't level-headed about things,
  • 6:50 - 6:54
    And I'm glad for that now.
  • 6:54 - 7:00
    It's important to take the plunge, and I still think so.
  • 7:00 - 7:04
    "Q. Is it okay to consider getting remarried even though I have a son?"
  • 7:04 - 7:06
    I see.
  • 7:08 - 7:13
    Although you have a son, you also have your own life to live,
  • 7:14 - 7:18
    So I think it's very important to value your own feelings.
  • 7:19 - 7:23
    A mother's happiness means happiness for the child as well.
  • 7:23 - 7:31
    I think it's necessary to think about whether or not you can stay in a good relationship for a long time,
  • 7:31 - 7:39
    But it's not necessary for you to cut back on your life while taking care of your children,
  • 7:39 - 7:41
    So think hard about it.
  • 7:41 - 7:45
    I think it's fine [to get remarried].
  • 7:46 - 7:50
    "Q. Has anything changed in your life after starting your YouTube channel?"
  • 7:51 - 7:52
    I wonder.
  • 7:52 - 7:56
    Like, I always have a camera with me to record videos now,
  • 7:56 - 8:02
    And before I go to sleep, I now wonder what videos I should make next.
  • 8:02 - 8:06
    Also, I read comments and like them.
  • 8:06 - 8:09
    They make me go, "Ah, these opinions exist too."
  • 8:09 - 8:17
    I really think a new form of communication [with our fans] has been established for the first time by talking about things not related to music.
  • 8:17 - 8:21
    This exchange of conversation is so much fun.
  • 8:22 - 8:25
    "Q. What should I give my girlfriend as my first birthday present to her?"
  • 8:26 - 8:29
    I wonder. Given the season, how about a scarf?
  • 8:31 - 8:38
    "Q. I want to teach my kindergartener how to play an instrument. Which should they be taught: guitar or drums?"
  • 8:39 - 8:40
    Ah.
  • 8:40 - 8:46
    Is your child saying they want to play an instrument?
  • 8:46 - 8:51
    If they don't want to do it, that would make it very difficult for them to enjoy playing it,
  • 8:51 - 8:55
    Or improve in their playing.
  • 8:55 - 8:59
    If they don't like it but have to practice every week,
  • 9:00 - 9:06
    The best parts about having a child who plays an instrument will be gone.
  • 9:07 - 9:10
    I wonder if they want to have their kid like music.
  • 9:10 - 9:13
    Playing music is a good thing,
  • 9:14 - 9:18
    And it'd be great if they took an interest in it.
  • 9:18 - 9:21
    Both guitar and drums are good.
  • 9:22 - 9:23
    All right.
  • 9:24 - 9:30
    So I've finished reading all of the questions I picked out.
  • 9:31 - 9:35
    Wow, I've been talking for more than an hour.

    (Thank you so much for all of your questions☺)
  • 9:35 - 9:37
    That was so long.
  • 9:37 - 9:42
    That was a lot of content, but I hope you enjoyed it.
  • 9:42 - 9:51
