Tablo: Everything you’ve earned can be lost.
Tablo: And personally, as a celebrity, or as a person in the public eye as a person who makes music, even if I lose everything and suddenly become the enemy of the public,
Tablo: I, I… have confidence that I won’t fall apart and keep on doing what I do. Even if the whole world points their fingers at me. Honestly, it’s a pity but that’s a problem with our current music scene or the culture of the celebrity world…
Tablo: There are times when… for no reason… people set out to ruin somebody.
Tablo: Honestly speaking.
Jongwan: They say they do it for a reason, but the reason itself makes no sense at all.
Tablo: Yes, if you look at it they are nonsense reasons, or things that aren’t true, but really within just 24 hours… they can make sure a person loses everything they have.
But as I’ve had this lifestyle for a few years, every time something like that happens, I’ve never felt scared and thought “what if this happens to me?” I have never, but I’ve realized an innocent person can become a sinner in just one moment.
Jongwan: It’s a witch hunt.
Tablo: Yes. I’ve seen it happen and thought “that could have been me”… If that does happen, rather than me having done something wrong, rather than there being a legit reason for that happening, I think I will just see it as my.. my turn.
Jongwan: Just calmly
Tablo: Yes, calmly. So I’ve thought, okay, if my turn ever comes, I’ll just think that this is just destiny… It’s destiny. Or accept it as the will of the heavens and not break down, and just, just do my thing, have confidence to make music, whether anyone listens or not, even if people curse me.Honestly, I hope this never happens to me, but… if it does…(omitted)
