Q & A::
Q: Why the name Lucky J?
A: If you take the lucky 7s from a slot machine, and flip them upside down they literally turn into Js. Therefore for them it is like a jackpot letter. Jessi adds the meaning that: they are lucky to have met each other.

Q: What were your first impressions of each other?
A: Jessi – When she first saw J-yo sing she wondered where such a young korean guy found the emotion to sing so soulfully (like american soul singers).
J-yo – Thought J-kyun was cold-hearted, but later found out the he is very warm-hearted.
J-kyun – When met everyone thought they would fit well together musically, and personality wise as well. Jessi had a strong first impression on him.

Q: If you saw your ideal type walking down the street what would you do?
A: J-kyun – if he saw a girl he was interested in he would look into her eyes and “eye speak” with her on a deeper level. He used to appoarch ladies first but now he doesn’t.
J-yo – he would just think to himself “that’s my type”
