We present the hip-hop style pictorial of two members (B.I & BOBBY) from YG’s

After BOBBY & B.I’s shooting for the pictorial, they were interviewed about
their first impressions of each other. B.I said, “At first glance, Bobby looked
gentle so I was curious as to what kind of hyung he was. As time went by, I
noticed that he joked around a lot. In one word, he gives me the feeling of ‘the
BOBBY said, “Because he’s strong-willed, B.I had a really scary feeling for a

When asked about artists that they are interested in working with, B.I mentioned

B.I was asked about the hardest thing to deal with being a leader. He answered,

B.I & BOBBY’s pictorial will be featured in the 139th volume of High Cut
magazine, released on December 4th.
