Zico Yoo Heeyeol Sketchbook, talk about “Television” Production

Zico began the talk by introducing Riehata Tokyo, a world famous dance team. They worked with Chris Brown, Omarion, and Rihanna. “So, when I wrote this song, I thought I had to dance with them. So I went to Japan and visited Kawasaki where they live to have a meeting with them. I eventually managed to persuade them to work with me.”

Zico participated in producing and creative directing of his 2nd mini album, “Television”. He performed Artist and Anti a day before their releases on Yoo Heeyeol Sketchbook. When asked about her second title track, Zico said, “Anti literally means Anti. I wrote the song as if I am an anti-fan of myself. I wrote it in the perspective of a person who hates me. I tried to criticize myself with this song. It is like a role play. I just show the situation in fiction.”



Show Me The Money 6 Participation

When Heeyeol heard that Zico had be in Show Me The Money 6, Heeyeol amazed by his attitude because Zico said he was criticized harshly by people. When asked about the reasons Zico came despite all of that, Zico commented, “Well, I thought, to be honest, I thought Show Me The Money 4 would be the last season. So I wanted to be a part of it when the program was very popular. That is why I decided to appear in that show despite all of that.”

“I joined season 6 for the same reason. I thought it would be the last season. I wanted to be a part of the grand finale. And there are a lot of great rappers in the program. After I finish the show, I find myself making progress while shooting that show.”




Role Model as a Producer : Seo Taiji

When asked about who are the producer Zico respected, he answered, “Yoo Heeyeol (to respect him), Lee Hyun Do, and Seo TaiJi. First of all, Seo TaiJi just brought out everything about him at such an early age. He was a sensation in the country and its culture. That is one good enough reason to respect him. That just explains everything. Even his name Seo TaiJi makes my heart pound. That is why I admire him so much.”



The Artist Who Made Zico Struggled A Lot

Zico has worked with a lot of popular singers such as Zion.T, Dean, Suran, Crush, Psy, Dynamic Duo, and so on. When asked about the person who gave the hardest time among the musicians he has worked with, Zico responded, “It was not like he gave me hard times. I just realized how hard it is to become a producer working with him. I worked on “Luv it” with Psy.”

“I wrote the song with laid-back which has retro styles. The song is not on beat. But Psy said, “I know this is amazing, and I had love to sing this song, but an up-tempo song is the best thing I can do. It fits me the best. He has to consider everything.”



Closing Performance

Zico prepared “I Am You, You Are Me,” for Sketchbook. He had never sung the song live on a public network.  The song popular as a song that captures women’s hearts. He also add “Turtle Ship” remix version by live band performance. He prepared encore performance of “Okey Dokey” and “Yes or No”
