Thank you all for your requests for Lambsey’s CLUB CITTA live concert, our "Tohoshinki self cover song corner".

The song "TAXI" is much more popular than I thought!
A song that was only included in the album should be so popular…I myself has written the lyrics for the song, and I am really surprised.
Are there many persons who have experienced such feelings?

For all the other songs, many people have emotionally written their feelings.
It will be difficult to select which song we should sing~!
Should we sing all the songs? (T/N: Inoue has provided Tohoshinki 6 songs in total.)
You are the one who will give me the supportive push! (Lol)

I am awaiting for your comments to my previous article. Thank you.

T/N: Up to this time, I can see 83 comments to the previous article, all the 6 songs are randomly requested. What is your favorite song?

[TRANS] 100222 Xiah Junsu Mesmerizes Audience at Last Seoul Performance of Mozart!

The incarnation of love and freedom child musical prodigy Mozart, [Mozart!] the musical’s last performance in Seoul was on the 20th, and Xiah Junsu’s explosive live performance mesmerized the audience.

Child music prodigy Mozart’s legendary life has been presented in front of an audience, Xiah Junsu’s performance on that day won the unanimous praise of seniors, the dreamy live singing getting favourable reviews.

In the eye-catching chapter 12, at the playground, while dressing up a new stage, with a Mozart who reunited with the Beverly family, to match their silly image, four words “TVXQ” and “Xiah Junsu” were called out, causing the audience to collapse with laughter.

When Constantine and her loved one Mozart reunited, Constantine’s skirt rolled up a bit, a charming yet innocent joke by Junsu “I can see your underwear” was also made.

The most spectacular was Chapter 14. The Archbishop of Cologne was in front of the emperor for opportunistic theft of Mozart’s chance to perform. When Mozart found him in a fit of anger, in the situation of a opposition, the words “You are an idiot” exploded. The archbishop did not understand and asked, “What do you mean by idiot?” “Count Arco! Do you know what is an idiot?” When the lines came out consecutively the audience burst out in fits of laughter.

With structured conflicts in the extreme, such performances let audiences feel fast and tense dramatic action. Following the story’s epic progression, passionate live performances let the piece of work show fluent rhythm and made the musical doubly interesting.

The audience have said that “This kind of singing is in no way inferior to the explosiveness of a bullet, it makes people forget this is live, it’s like being in a dream.” “Especially Xiah Junsu’s natural yet not indifferent kind of singing, it’s like a child who hasn’t grown up yet, the pure image of Mozart lets people feel closer to the character.

[TRANS] 1002224 Tohoshinki Has Yet to Disappear

Three of TVXQ's members in Korea are still in a dispute with their company, while in Japan, they have once again proven that they are Asia's best.
Oricon Chart news reported on the 23rd that TVXQ's "BEST SELECTION 2010" has sold 413,000 copies, and that it took the top spot in the March Oricon Monthly Chart; this is the highest record for a foreign group. The record was previously set by Bon Jovi's "These Days" which was released in June 1995 with 379,000 copies sold. From the 17th of February, the local sales of "BEST SELECTION 2010" came to a total of more than 200,000. From this, we can see how they took first place consecutively for days, and after a week created the record of selling more than 400,000 copies. After their debut in Japan last April 2005, this is the first time they claimed the top spot through an album, and not a single; of course, they were also the first Korean boy band to do so. Up until now, the best album chart ranking was their 4th Japanese album "The Secret Code" last March.

Oricon stated that, "Just like last year's total album sales got the good result of 'BEST 3' in the charts, the TVXQ who soared high in 2009 were chosen to be models for the cover page of women's magazine 'JJ.' Their popularity cannot be stopped," and more comments like these.

This album is a collection of the members' chosen songs; the CD+DVD version includes 11 songs' PVs. The 2CD+DVD version is a compilation if the members' handpicked songs, new song "Tokiwo Tomete," public download limited song "Endlessly Sweet," and the theme song of this year's movie to be released in September, "With All My Heart." "Endlessly Sweet" and a mix of currently hot song "TVXQ NONSTOP-MIX VOL. 2" will be meeting everyone shortly.

On the other hand, this time's "BEST SELECTION 2010" will be released in Korea on the 5th of March; album stakeholders are concerned about the result because it's difficult nowadays to sell CDs in Korea. In 2008, the official 4th Korean album "MIROTIC" exceeded 500,000 copies in Korea, being hailed as the top-selling album for that year.

Celebrating Oricon Weekly Album Number 1!

Tohoshinki’s "BEST SELECTION 2010" has been honorably ranked number 1 in the Oricon weekly chart!

And, they have made a new record for foreign artists, updating the past record of Bon Jovi’s initial sales, great accomplishments!

I am really honored that as Lambsey (T/N: street live group of two members, Inoue and Yuki Yamashita) we have provided 2 songs, and 4 songs as Shinjiroh Inoue!

These kinds of wonderful groups will not appear again in a long time.
At any rate, I want them to continue their activities.
It' is my sincere wish that they will continue.

Today, we made the set list for Lambsey's Club CITTA live. (T/N: scheduled to be held on March 26, in Club CITTA KAWASAKI)
In this happy day, I want to do something special for Tohoshinki and their fans, who have purchased the tickets for our live performance.

Receiving an official approval from avex (T/N: Lambsey also belongs to avex), we have decided to have a self-cover corner of Tohoshinki’s songs!

Since this is Lambsey’s concert, we cannot sing all the songs we’ve provided to Tohoshinki….
Lambsey and Shinjiroh Inoue has provided these songs……..

* Doushite kimiwo sukini natte shimattandarou?
* Bolero
* Stand by U
* Tokiwo Tomete
* With All My Heart ~Kimiga odoru, natsu~

We have already covered by ourselves “Doushite~”, so we will sing the song. If we are to sing two more, what songs will you like?
Please give us your requests!

[FANACC/TRANS] 100225 "I’m a man and I love TVXQ!" by Bigeast

13 years old, Junior high school student: My mom loves TVXQ and since my friends tell me I look like Junsu, I started to see their DVD’s and became a fan. ^^ I have few guy friends who are also TVXQ fans at school and it is so much fun to share new stuff about them with my fan friends.

18 years old, student: My young sister loves TVXQ. We are so close, so I watched DVD with her, and without knowing how and when it happened, I became fan of TVXQ too! ^^ They sing and dance so well and all five of them look great! I love the fact that they are such a good friends with each other. That's how we guy friends should be! I purely love all members of TVXQ!

21 years old, student: I am Xiah fan. I am a guy who likes women. But, TVXQ is the guys who look super cool in my eyes. I love “purple line” and I often imitate TVXQ fashion. I would love to find more male fans of TVXQ to be my friend.

25 years old, businessman: I liked backstreet boys in the past. TVXQ is from Korea which is near from Japan so it makes me feel closer to TVXQ and I easily became their fan. When I sing TVXQ song, everyone loves it. (Do I sound like bragging? hahaha.) I wish to know even more about TVXQ!

35 years old, businessman: I was interested in Korea before. And when my friend gave me TVXQ’s album “T” last year, I loved it! So I joined Bigeast and after a-nation I became even bigger fan because real TVXQ is even cooler! At my company's Karaoke gathering, I sing “Beautiful You”. When I attended Kobe Fan meeting, Yuchun and I had an eye contact with each other and he yelled “Oh, there is a man here!” And he looked so happy! LOL

[AKP] 100225 TVXQ’s Toki wo Tomete to be Used for Cosmetics Brand

As a number of idols make their big comebacks in Korea, TVXQ will be busy making a return of their own with a new single overseas in Japan.

It’s been revealed by AVEX that TVXQ will be dropping a brand new single that will include Toki Wo Tomete (Let’s Stop Time), TVXQ NONSTOP-MIX VOL.2 and Yunho’s solo track Checkmate. Toki Wo Tomete will reportedly be used to endorse MENARD, the internationally-known beauty/cosmetic brand.

Although Toki Wo Tomete was also featured on the BEST SELECTION album, this release combined with the new endorsement has led fans to believe that TVXQ will grace Japan with fresh activities next month.

Meanwhile, the Blue Light DVD version of 4th LIVE TOUR 2009 ~The Secret Code~FINAL in TOKYO DOME is set to be released next month on March 17.

Let’s hope that TVXQ is indeed cooking up some new activities this month; it’d definitely be relieving for fans after the unsettling news earlier regarding TVXQ’s agencies, SME and AVEX.

[TRANS] 100225 SM Korea, "Possible Improvement of Artists' Situation"

Daily News Korea
ⓒ 매일경제 &
2010.02.25 11:24:37 입력

Founder of SM Entertainment resigned from SM Korea's management position.
An SM Entertainment spokesman explained that,
"From now on, Lee Soo Man will focus only on future foreign production activities."

Lee Soo Man will withdraw from his duties at SM (Korea) which he founded in 1995.
He will formally resign from the public management director's position on the 25th,
and stay only as the main shareholder of SM Entertainment in Korea.

However, it is expected that no particular change will be made at SM after his resignation
from the director's position since SM (in Korea) has been administered by the representative Kim Youngmin.

However it could bring the case that SM artists' situation/내실
could be strengthened/improved/강화될 due to this change at SM eEtertainment (Korea).
(*No specific word written here about what kind of artists' "situation/내실" and how it could be strengthened/improved and why.)

Recently, Avex sold their stocks to Lee Soo Man and Neowizbugs.
Even if Lee Soo Man has resigned from SM's director position,
he remains strong as the main shareholder of the SM, owning a total of 28.3% in share.

*T/N: There is much news in Korea about this today,
but none of them mention anything specific about TVXQ.
So, let us not have any unnecessary worries and Always Keep The Faith together!^^

[TRANS] 100225 Japanese Idol NEWS "Scared Of TVXQ" Japanese Music Market Advice "Avoid TVXQ

Johnny's Entertainment idol group NEWS has decided to postpone the release of their new single 'さくらガール(Sakura Girl)', which was scheduled to be out on March 24th, by one week.

A representative of the Japanese Records Association analyzed the situation and said in an interview with 'Saijo Woman' that "Korea's top idol group TVXQ is releasing a new single '時ヲ止メテ(Please Stop Time)' on the same day," And "It can be analyzed that NEWS moved their release date because they are afraid to meet TVXQ on the charts."

He also said, "NEWS holds the record of 11 consecutive albums ranking first on the Oricon Charts ever since their debut. It can be seen that they fear this record might be broken if they release their single the same day TVXQ does," and "If it had been Arashi, who ranks first in overall annual sales, or KAT-TUN, who sold 350,000 copies of their single 'Love yourself〜君が嫌いな君が好き〜' that was used as the main theme song of drama "Sassy girl Snako", they would have gone up against TVXQ but this decision was a wise one."


But despite their soaring popularity, they seem to be showing a weak side in front of 'TVXQ' and fans felt upset at this saying things such as, "This makes me feel complicated." and "Why are they pushing back their release date?"

On the other hand, NEWS' '恋のABO' that was released last year has sold an accumulative 234,000 copies. 'Saijo Woman' says "These sales may reflect the best of NEWS' capabilities."

Famous Hallyu Trot singer Kim Yeon Jae highly praised BoA and TVXQ on their Hallyu activities. At the press conference that was held at the World Ruby Room at the Lotte Hotel in Jamshil-dong, Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 24th for her nationwide tour, Kim Yeon Ja said, "BoA and TVXQ are truly amazing." (omitted) Regarding Korean singers who enter the Japanese market as Hallyu stars, Kim Yeon Ja said, "Before, it was disheartening to see celebrities entering Japan without doing any research and just singing. To be active in Japan, you have to be knowledgeable about the country but there are a lot of juniors who entered the market without any preparations." But Kim Yeon Ja praised some of her other juniors and said, "But now, a lot of celebrities learn the Japanese language and the culture before they enter the market. These days, they are smart and know how to succeed. BoA and TVXQ speak Japanese more fluently than I do. I don't know how they did so well in such a short amount of time."

[INFO] 100224 Z100 (New York's Hit Music Station) Adds Tohoshinki Artist Page to Their Site

We previously reported that Z100, New York's popular FM radio, introduced "BREAK OUT!" last February 18th through the morning show "Elvis Duran & the Morning Zoo." (here)
Now, they even added a Tohoshinki artist page to their site! It still looks empty, but they have filled in the Biography and Discography section (incomplete).

Formed by SM Entertainment in Korea as a standard boy band of sorts, Tong Vfang Xien Qi (also known as Dong Bang Shin Ki and Tohoshinki, depending on which country one is from) quickly became a leading front in the "Hallyu" Korean wave of entertainment across Asia, akin to the Latin wave of the late '90s in the U.S. The group was assembled in a Menudo-esque manner, with the similar intent of rotating members out when they became less popular or photogenic. After massive backlash by fans, the group was left alone. Luckily for the record label, the band also became one of the biggest acts in Asia. The band's debut in Korea, Hug, proved to be just the type of bubblegum pop hungrily devoured by the fans. After a successful full-length debut in Tri-Angle and a strong follow-up with 2005's Rising Sun, the band embarked on an Asian touring and media blitz, picking up fans along the way, despite singing primarily in Korean and English. After a third Korean album and a series of scandals, the band focused on the Japanese market, releasing tracks in Japanese (learning the language as they went) and scoring hits with a full Japanese album (Five in the Black) and a series of concerts that included the massive Budokan. While developing beyond bubblegum into still mainstream but more mature pop and a cappella vocalists, the band released numerous albums across three countries throughout 2006 and 2007. Further touring throughout Asia (including a memorable concert during a typhoon in Taiwan) led to more Japanese success, culminating in the number two slot debut on the Oricon charts for the album T in 2008 (preceding singles also marked the first time non-Japanese artists grabbed the number one Oricon position). ~ Adam Greenberg, All Music Guide

[FANACC] 100223 JaeJoong’s Sister: “Jae is not in Love”

T/N, this is a fan account by a Japanese fan who had visited Korea this February and had visited JaeJoong's 6th sister's cosmetic shop. This obasan (housewife) fan is really cute, no matter how old she is, she is still a girl in the heart ah~~

* * * * *

When I arrived at the shop, there were 4 to 5 people in there, however it was quiet.

Jae’s sister is really quiet; her food was squished and untouched, because it’s a little scary? I think.

Then, leave it to obasan ba~ (T/N, I think she mean herself here.)

“JaeJoong not coming?”

“He was here 10 minutes before opening, yesterday.”

Her Japanese is really good.

“Eh~~~ Is it? Where did he sit?”

“Right here.”

One of the customers already took that seat la~

“Ah, here.” Suddenly the shop becomes very lively.

“Sister, let’s take a photo?”

“No, I did not put on any make up today, too ugly.”

“It’s alright, I came here all the way from Osaka~”

The moment I mentioned Osaka, Jae’s sister became very attentive because 4th sister is currently at Osaka. We chat congenially and she took a photo with me in the end.

There are a few of her movements that are very similar to JaeJoong’s, felt like he was there as well, it’s very amazing.

“What did JaeJoong use?”

“Because we give it to him, that’s why he uses them. Shampoo, conditioner, hair serum, body lotion.”

I’ve no resistance towards things that ‘JaeJoong use’; therefore I bought all of them. Using them everyday now, felt like my hair and skin are shining, having good mood every single day!

Also, I don’t dare to ask, but… but… to my surprise my friend actually asked her the rumor about ‘Abiru Yu’.

She responded that when that piece of rumor was out, JaeJoong was there with her in the shop. He was shocked and even asked his sister, does he need to contact a lawyer. Therefore they did not date, so everyone, please do not worry!

How I wish to stay in the room where I can feel JaeJoong’s presence.

The gentle, attentive and considerable JaeJoong who is loved by everyone that we know today is all because he had grown up among all the wonderful and kind sisters of him.

TVXQ's U-Know to Perform in Michael Jackson Concert

Jung Yun-ho, better known as U-Know of the boy band TVXQ, will perform in a commemorative Michael Jackson concert scheduled for March 27 and 28 in Seoul.

Titled "Band from Michael Jackson's 'This Is It' the Movie with U-Know," the joint U.S.-Korea show will reenact the last concert planned by the late King of Pop.

Jackson had planned to perform a series of fifty concerts in London last year which would have been his first major performances since the HIStory World Tour in 1996, but died on June 25 just 18 days before the date of the first show.

U-Know will travel to Las Vegas in early March to join the American team. The Korean concert producer S2 Entertainment will reveal the final cast and content of the concert on Friday, and tickets will go on sale from March 2.

PAPARAZZI Their Private Time Clothes!

JEJUNG: I picked a striped knit cardigan and an easy to wear but think long knit. The bottom is of course boots-in (jeans inside the boots). I still like boots and I have more than 30 boots at my house!

YUNHO: I picked the jeans to be main and picked a brown V-neck shirt with a jacket. I’ve done modeling before and jeans are one of my favorite clothing item.

CHANGMIN: What I like about leather jackets are that they have a compact design that makes my body line look good. The wash-damaged design is the pint for my dark indigo jeans.

YUCHUN: Casual clothes is what I like the most and whats comfortable. Since my jeans are really wash-damaged designed I chose a light brown color for my jacket. I like jeans that loo like the colors fading.

JUNSU: Aren’t my jeans unique? I wanted to challenge this patterned design. The cardigan I wore over my t-shirt has a design that no other cardigans have and it also feels good.

From the type of clothes to the type of girls, we’re going to share the five’s “Likes”.

The clothes we want a girl to wear is this!

YUNHO: since I usually dress natural looking I want the girl to dress natural too! Once I get a girlfriend I want to go on a date with a style like this. And sometimes a hat looks cool and attractive.

CHANGMIN: Oh, this is good. This ones nice too. Umm… (the 2nd one from the right) is black and white outfit but the whole atmosphere is bright and the hat is cute too. That’s why I picked that. I guess i seem to like black.

JUNSU: I like clothes that are balanced with cute and sexy. So i pick these three. Skirts are cute but pants style like this is good too.

YUCHUN: I’m going to put it all on this! (the 2nd to left) the others are umm… I like this the most! The reason i picked this is because i like natural looking hair style and fashion. For girls natural is the best. I don’t like shiney/girly clothes.

JEJUNG: (the 4th one from the right) I like this blue napolean jacket style the best. Its a little unique yet feminine. The pink stickers are Junsu’s? Are you sure he didn’t randomly pick it? *laughs*.

**The ViVi Editors picked 7 different categorized coordination. For every single one they like they put a sticker. (they only have 7 stickers).

The sticker colors are:

Yellow= Yunho

Red= Jejung

Blue= Yoochun

Pink= Junsu

Silver= Changmin.

[TRANS] 100222 GQ Magazine Korea, March Issue - Yunho and Jo Jae Jin Interview Each Other

T/N: Translation of Yunho and Jo Jae Jin's Interview of each other in GQ Korea Magazine-March Issue:

Jo Jae Jin (Cho Jae Jin) asks Uknow Yunho (He is a professional soccer player who is currently playing for a Japanese league)

Q. When we meet, we drink tea and eat and talk. That's it. Don't people ask if we drink (alcohol) with guys? Haven't you heard that?

A: It's exactly the same for me. If I meet (someone), I talk about work and the future. It can become sort of serious but there are those who see it as fun, those who see it as cute, and those who see it as cool. It's like that. To me, "family" is very important. If I decide that someone is my kind of person, from then on, I'll talk about work, the future, things like that.

Q. However, why are you so busy? Since our work is different, it's possible that I don't understand but aren't you even busy in the middle of the night (early morning)?

A: Oh, sorry hyung (older brother). You already know I'm the meticulous type. I'm the type that well prepare a lot for the next schedule. I practice at night but for example, I don't just practice. I like walking on the spur of the moment (randomly). I like to walk around Seoul here and there in disguise and think. I'm the type to drive myself hard but there's not enough time. However, you always call me during my practice.

Q: When I called before, you said you were walking (around). Where do you walk?

A: I go here and there. At that time, Was I walking to Noryangjin? I don't like to go to a place I've been to but I like to go to places that I don't know.

Q: Do you relax by doing that?

A: No matter how many people praise me saying I did good, there are times when I look at myself and I don't think I did. So, I think that others really think I didn't do good either. I feel like I can only give that feeling (doing good) if I've tried my best 100%. When I have a really bad cold and I have to go up on stage, I think, "should I dance hard?" I know that when I think like that, I will only be able to give the feeling of 30%. (He is very hard and demanding on himself)

Q: Because of that "perfectionism", doesn't it make it hard in other things?

A: As you know, in private, I act like a dummy (hehe, he's really a dork). When I'm working and something goes wrong, I will definitely ask myself questions but when it's personal, I just go "oh well~." When I first met you, you appeared serious like a sports athlete but even though you seemed that way, how should I say it, you were innocent?

Q: Let's say that's the case, but what do you do when you're alone?

A: Well, don't know. Write (myself) a plan for 10 years later?

Q: Hmm...

A: If not, I'll definitely meet friends. Like I said before, I walk alone too. I also said this in last year's GQ interview but I don't want to lose "Jung Yunho." On the stage, I go "I'm the best, I'm the best who can't lose to anyone" so I can do it (perform)but when I come down from the stage, I want to be normal. If you live to this way, then it seems like your view of the world changes a little bit. I still have lots of regular (non-celebrity) friends. That's why, going around with friends sightseeing, I'll see mothers selecting fresh fish and trying to bargain with prices. That's why when I do that, I will only take 3000 won because I might get weak (haha frugal Yunho).

Q: Do you want to go to the mountain once sometime? Chong Ghe Mountain is good. Bok Han Mountain is good too.

A: I'd like that. We also talked about going to the mountains a long time ago but we only talked about it.

Q: What do you dislike the most?

A: Hmm..people who lie. Lies.

Q: What do you dislike about yourself? Something like, things you want to correct?

A: Well, my dressing habit? I want to correct grabbing just whatever feels the most comfortable. Once in a while, manager hyungs will tell me to wear something nice but I don't like it when they say that either. I also have to take care of my face. Oh, I hate taking care of my nails the most. Actually, I came today too after I got skin care/treatment. It's hard laying still (haha knew he couldn't just be still). Also, I keep getting blamed for broken things.

Q: What are you talking about?

A: When I touch something which has nothing wrong with it, it either gets broken, breaks, or something falls off. It does that. I didn't mean to do that but it just gets broken. I get blamed because I don't explain what happened so I get into a lot of trouble. (hehe clumsy Yunho)

Q: What's your limit (alcohol)? For some reason, I think it's 3.

A: I don't know if my limit is 3 or not. When I drink with people who's good at drinking, we're all sprawled out. I didn't know that. Truthfully, I don't really like alcohol (but) how should I say it? When people drink, it seems like they kind of get aggressive, they argue over something that isn't even a big deal. That's why I usually just like talking and having a meal more. However, when I drink, I definitely drink. When it's my birthday, that day, (they'll say) "Yunho-yah, drink some today." I'll drink from a bowl this big, one shot for me, one shot for you.

Q: Do you compete with that too?

A: It's not competing. If I say, "drink as much as you love me," they'll drink in one shot. The staff will pour alcohol in a large bowl like this and say, "drink as much as you love us." It's like that. If I don't drink that much, it seems like I'm lying (poor Yunho, so he ends up drinking all of it)

Q: Isn't it okay to tell that kind of lie?

A: There are times when you may lie with good intentions. However, for me telling a could see that as cute but lies don't fit in my life.

Q: Competing is competing but there's also the issue of self-confidence.

A: I just want to learn more. If I'm going to learn, I want to learn it right. It's like that. When there's someone who does something really well that I'm interested in, I'll grab that person for sure and be next to him. (I think to myself) Let him teach me, let's give it a try once, let's see whether I will win or lose from the experience. I get those feelings. I want to enrich those kind of experiences. I really don't like living only within this life (celebrity life). That's why I want to try my best getting together with lots of people.

Q: I know what you're talking about but don't ask me to compete with you. I won't do that with you.

A: A long time ago, I played basketball with Hee Jong hyung but I only made one goal (basket) and I lost big time. I was so upset...

Q: haha, I knew it.

A: I didn't say anything (about losing) even when that happened. (haha don't want to admit defeat)

Q: Why didn't you?

A: I just said, "hyung, let's do it one more time, huh? Just one more time."

Q: Anyhow, I won't bet with you on similar stuff. If you said let's make a bet, would it be something like dancing? (no) You would say let's do soccer.

A: That's right. I won't bet on something that I can do well.

Q: Anyways, I knew there was something in your gaze since I first saw you. No matter what it is, you will do it. Talking to you some just now makes me think that.

A: You're a person who will definitely do something if you say you'll do it but if you don't want to, your style is to not do it.

Q: Are you a little different?

A: I am the type to do something even if I don't want to.

Q: I heard it somewhere that when you're really have a close friend, you can be in the same room and not say anything and not worry about it. How would it be if it was with me, the two of us?

A: I don't know.

Q: I think I'll be really uncomfortable.

A: haha, it's because whenever I meet with you, it's always with other people. However, I feel when it's just the two of us, you will talk a lot?

Q: Hmm..If you were to describe yourself in one word, what would it be?

A: If I was to describe myself as an animal, it would be a leopard.

Q: Then what about me?

A: You seem like a tiger but actually I think you may be like a black leopard.

Q: It's similar but a black one?

A: It's similar but a little heavier.

Q: What is your dream at this moment?

A: Since I've come/reached a mountain, I see a higher mountain. No matter what I do, I will do my best. As Yunho, I want to always be honest and be a truthful person who gives trust. It's easier to say than do it but eventually that will happen.

Q: How will we be 10 years later?

A: I've thought about this alot. 10 years later, I think we'll be eating and drinking tea and talking. It's possible to be together with wives too. We're not fancy types. Is it alright to ask you now?

Uknow Yunho asks Jo Jae Jin

Q: Don't you have the concept of (person with) few words?

A: I don't know. Maybe my personality is low-key? I'm the hyung so do you think I'll act cute next to you? If you want, I'll show you at karoake.

Q: Are you like that when you're with a woman too?

A: It's all the same.

Q: We've never been alone, just the two of us. What do you think it'll be like if it's just the two of us?

A: I think it'll be really awkward? What would two guys do together? (this just cracked me up) I don't know if we were to drink. I can imagine how awkward it would be even if I don't see it. However, they say that when really close friends are together, it can be like they're there even though they aren't. Isn't it like that for us too?

Q: I'm not sure but I think you will definitely say a lot.

A: That will not happen.

Q: Are you good at drinking?

A: About half bottle of soju (lol guess he's not a drinker)

Q: I think you can drink more. If you were to make a bet with me, will you really lose?

A: Of course.

Q: Even if it's soccer (haha Yunho trying to get him to play soccer)

A: Yes. I don't like tiresome things. You know that.

Q: Then, let's make a bet on a (soccer) match one time. I don't bet on something I do well.

A: It's no fun betting on soccer. Let's sing. (lol He's teasing Yunho)

Q: haha. What did you think of me when you first saw me?

A: Are you asking me because you don't know? You looked sensitive and really mean.

Q: When we meet, we mainly talk about work. I guess you think I'm really mean those times too.

A: Uhh, I was kidding. haha. I just thought that since we're both busy and meet once in a while.

Q: Haven't you wanted to talk about other things?

A: Of course I do. Are you close to SNSD? (haha he just kills me)

Q: Ask when it's over and it's just the two of us.

Q: Are you really interested in this work or are you just curious?

A: Of course I'm interested. They say you'll be happy if you can experience many things while living.

Q: How is it having fans follow you? For some reason, I think you'll be tired of it.

A: can be really uncomfortable.

Q: Do you do things really good even if you don't want to do it?

A: I don't do it. I can't. I decline.

Q: If I ask you to describe me in one word, what would it be?

A: Awesome guy.

Q: Then what about you?

A: A happy guy.

Q: I always talk about planning for 10 years later. How do you think I'll be 10 years later?

A: I don't know about you but I'm going to be married and live normally.

Q: Why are all your answers so short? You look as if you have a lot of secrets. I don't want to pry but...still tell me just one.

A: I don't have any secrets.
