[MISC] SHINee Key wants to Switch Bodies with MinHo!

Posted Image

Recently for Elle Girl’s March issue, SHINee Key and TaeMin modeled in crisp spring fashion. This particular issue had a casual theme to it, which included the two members posing in two ways: a natural style, and a style in which they posed while enjoying their breaks.

The chic poses and active attitude were presented by Key and TaeMin using simple things such as a pair of shoes or a pair of glasses. The interview afterwards with the two members revealed their little tastes and lifestyles. During the interview that took place after the photoshoot, the question, “If you could trade bodies with any member, who would it be?” was asked to Key, who responded, “MinHo, because he exercises well and I want to see how that would feel.”

Next, TaeMin was asked, “When you see winter, what do you see first?”, in which he answered, “Snow/Eyes*, because when I see my own eyes, I can hypnotize myself.” TaeMin was also asked the question, “How do you feel when your birthday gets closer?” TaeMin replied “I feel that the time flies by too fast when my birthday gets near. I feel worried, yet I don’t want to be a kid [anymore].”

The Elle Girl March issue with the two SHINee members will include photoshoot pictures, as well as the interview questions and answers.

[NEWS] Dalmatian on their mini album, Inati’s group obsession, and changing up their image

Posted Image

Fans have probably noticed by now, but Dalmatian is anything but rookie when it comes to talent. Each of the individual members are known for their extensive experience prior to their debut as a group, such as leader Inati with People CrewDay Day as the rap instructor for JYP Entertainment, and Daniel with B2ST’s Yoseob.
Six of the seven tracks were produced by the members themselves, which gives a deeper meaning to the overall album in comparison to their “Round 1” debut. Inati revealed, “We still consider ourselves rookies, and we still rehearse through the night and into the morning. Just because we’ve released a mini-album doesn’t mean anything’s changed. Our hearts are more determined than ever, but other than that, nothing’s changed.”
Jisu added, “We put a lot on the line for this album. Of course this album doesn’t mark the end for us, but we worked as if it really was our last. We consider this our real start, and hope to meet with our fans as soon as possible.”
Lover Cop,” one of their two title tracks, has a unique background story to go with its unique name. The members revealed that they were watching RoboCop during their break and drew influence from the movie. Jisu added his own personal touch by writing about his past love in the lyrics.
Dari explained, “Our music isn’t IQ as much as it is EQ. ‘Round 1′ was filled with our hopes and dreams, whereas our recent comeback is full of stories about love to stimulate certain emotions. We tried a variety of new ideas this time around.”

Another interesting point about the group is that there’s a 10 year age difference between hyung Inati and maknae DanielYoungwon stated, “Leader hyung never loses his leadership image on stage. He’s overflowing with charisma, but he’s actually quite the jokester.”
Daniel added, “Inati hyung’s nickname is ‘the 30-year-old you hate.’ I actually saw a book titled that at the book store, so I’m planning to gift it to him for his birthday this year (laughter). He normally acts really cute, especially when he says ‘It’s mine!’ when we’re trying to eat something.”
Now that the topic’s completely moved on to Inati, the members continued their ‘explosive’ confessions about their leader. They claimed that Inati never showers alone, and that he always calls at least one of them in to shower with him. He forces the member to sit on the toilet and talks to them while he showers in the stall.
Inati clarified, “I wanted to get closer to the kids, and I always want to talk about a lot of different things while I shower. Honestly, I get nervous when there isn’t someone there. I can’t even sleep at night in case they all run away without me!

Posted Image

When asked about their hopes for the New Year, Jisu shyly answered, “I want to win #1 on a music program,” while Daniel added, “I want people to think of our faces when they hear our name, not ‘101 Dalmatians.” Youngwon replied, “We’re looking forward to a rookie award this year.”
Day Day gave a shout out to their international fans by stating, “In our lyrics for ‘Round 1,’ there’s a part where it says we’re prepared all over the world. Amongst the international fanbase, there’s quite many that love Dalmatian. Not only our Korea, but we hope to expand and meet our fans all over the world.”
The group concluded, “Although it’s a mini-album, we worked on it like it was an official album. This is an album we’ve all sweat blood and tears for during the past nine years. As a group, we hope to work towards our fanbase as devils on stage and angels off stage. Movies and dramas are boring without changing it up like that, right? (laughter) Please look forward to us!

[NEWS] Yunho Got Asked Out By A Female Artist?

Posted Image

On February 21, TVXQ made a guest appearance on SBS radio show ‘Choi Hwa Jung’s Power Time”, commencing in a relaxed and casual conversation while revealing many different behind-the-scenes stories.

On that day, while expressing Jun Ji Hyun as his ideal woman, Yunho said, “I was once asked out by a female artist. We originally started casually texting, and then progressed into calling each other. Because it turned into a frequent thing, our relationship deepened, and feelings started to develop. She indistinctly confessed to me, but I have a really slow personality in terms of these things, so I didn’t realize it for the longest time.”

Listening on the side, Changmin bluntly said, “Any confession from a female artist that I received were rejected. I also don’t reply to their texts that often. With regards to ideal types, Yunho likes a leading type, business-professional woman. He loves Jun Ji Hyun’s personality inMy Sassy Girl’.”

He adds, “If I say I don’t look at the outward appearance then that would be a lie. I hope her personality is kind and caring, she can cook well, and she honors elders with polite respect.”

In addition, on the show message board, TVXQ left their personally taken photos, revealing their make-up free, flawless skin. Even with such a short distance between them and the camera, there was still no unsightly spots or marks, which makes one particularly jealous. The show producer also left a message of praise on the message board, complimenting them on their good looks and small faces.

On the other hand, TVXQ is now participating in activities with the promotion of their second hit song, ‘MAXIMUM’.

[NEWS] 110219 Infinite makes music a priority

Posted Image

Infinite may be one of the flurry of pop bands armed with charming looks. But the seven-member boy band says they are different in that their emphasis is on the music rather than visual elements, including their looks.

Their claim is underscored by the fact that they belong to an agency that also manages hip-hop band Epik High and rock band Nell - both of which are known for their raw talent. In most cases, pop bands are managed by agencies that deal only with pop bands.

“We have strived to foster the ability to create our own style out of any musical genre. That is our tactic to surviving the fierce competition,” Woo Hyun, one of the band members, said in an interview with the Korea JoongAng Daily last month.

After releasing their first album “First Invasion” last June, Infinite came back last month with a six-song EP called “Evolution.” The title song “Before the Dawn,” also known as “BTD,” is a dance number with a powerful beat and masculine vocals.

The song has yet to dominate the local charts but the band members say they have fully devoted themselves to ensuring the album’s success. That included perfecting a so-called “scorpion dance,” in which the seven young men, aged between 18 and 22, stand up at the same time from a prone position on the floor with one leg stretched behind them like a scorpion’s tail.

To train for such physically demanding moves, they practiced for 10 hours per day. Some members even sustained injuries in rehearsal and had to be treated by an orthopedist.

But all of that is behind them and they are getting ready to present a Japanese version of the song “Before the Dawn” at a showcase in Tokyo on April 2.

“Moving into the Japanese market is sure to be a crucial turning point for us,” said L. “We started studying Japanese even before making our debut in Korea.”

The runway show itself was livestreamed online for viewers worldwide, and featured bright and whimsical designs drawing from a pop art, Andy Warhol-esque concept (think Superman and Coca Cola), neon raver kid hairstyles and more.
