Q. Your type?
A1. Short pants or One-piece
ON : As expected, one-piece!
JH : one-piece
TM : Anything cute is OK
KY: short pants
A2. Long hair or Short hair
ON : short hair
JH: Either is fine
TM: Same as my answer to 1st question
MH: long hair
KY: long hair
A3. Sexy girl or Pretty girl or cutie girl
ON: Doesn’t matter
JH: All! (laugh)
TM: sexy girl! (answering right away)
MH: pretty girl
KY: If one is cute, style doesn’t matter
A4. What would you do if you meet your dream girl [*a girl you’re destined to be with]?
ON: Perhaps, I think I’ll hesitate a lot. I may not be able to talk to her.
JH: I won’t hesitate.. I’ll confess on spot!
TM: Give me your phone number! (laugh) (answering right away)
MH: I can’t say anything. [JH “Your dream girl will be gone !”] Then, I’ll brave myself up to confess.
KY: I’ll start by making a chance to run into and talk to her.
A5. Your summer memories?
ON: I got lost at a beach when I was little and resolved, “I won’t be lost any more!!”
JH: Cooling food in summer such as red-bean sherbet [*patbingsu] or cold noodle. When it rained during the MV shoot at Okinawa, I ate patbingsu waiting for the rain to stop.
TM: Concert with yeoreobun! and my birthday!! We celebrated it during our live concert at Nigata. I was happy!
MH: What can’t be missed is horror movies! I go to see a hit movie of the year.
KY: In summer, my grandma made bean-soup noodle. I want to eat it!
– A new song came out soon after you released an album in June.
TM: We prepare bit by bit when we don’t have schedules and make recordings back in Korea. We’ve been busy. JH: We are always busy but I don’t need a break.
KY: What, wait, really?
JH: Work, concert, recording, I enjoy all, so it’s OK!
– What kind of song is Boy Meet U?
MH: A cute song!
JH: It’s summer style song. This song’s point is our smile. Pay attention to our smile.
KY: Expressing joy rather than performance is important.
ON: Enjoy it as you see and hear.
– You had album jacket and MV shoot at beach. Refreshing!
JH: At Okinawa. But all we did at the beach was filming–we went into the sea only for 10 mins. Taemin had to get out in 5 mins due to jellyfish. Didn’t you feel sad?
TM: Yes! When we got there finally!
– It was your first time at Okinawa?
KY: Right! We had Taco-rice. It was our dream~ Our kpop idol friends all have been to Okinawa, so I asked “What’s famous at Okinawa? and they said “I recommend Taco-rice”. We asked staff, “We really want to eat it!”
JH: We wondered “What is Taco-rice?’ and found out it’s Taco-flavored rice. It was different from what we imagined (laugh).
– JP version Dream Girl was choreographed by Toni Testa, following Sherlock. What’s his most memorable advice?
KY: That basics are important. The point is using stand mic, and we practiced the basic standing mic moves a lot everyday. Our comeback day coming up, we were moving so naturally. It made us realize basics are important although we have been dancing all the time.
– Onew-ssi, what’s your secret for spinning stand mic so well?
ON: I’ve been good at spinning things from my childhood. It’s my long-time secret (laugh) I can spin anything.
KY: It has nothing to do with Toni Testa! (laugh)
– I see (laugh) Sunny Day Hero is another new song.
JH: It’s a cheerful song as “Sunny Day” indicates. The lyrics have words like sea, summer! I thought it’s cooling at first listening.
– Then who do you think is a ‘hero=a reliable person’?
JH: Isn’t it a responsible person? Someone who does things for people behind the back.
ON: It’s Minho!
MH: Ah I was surprised my name suddenly came up (laugh) Am I a reliable man?
All: Yes!! You are reliable!
– It was surprising that you performed these 3 songs at JAT 2013 before its release for sales.
KY: Was it? We’ve practiced them all along, so they don’t feel like new songs (laugh).
JH: We can see fans are surprised.
– This tour continues until December, what do you want people to attend to?
ON: With the stage, we use not only the front but also both sides and the back, so please watch all-directionally. TM: Please enjoy together taking in all the feels we want to deliver to fans.
KY: It’ll be different from our other concerts so far. We prepared for this with Japanese staff for the first time and it will show our unique personalities.
MH: Pay attention to our performance rather than to fancy sets.
JH: 2 years passed since our Japanese debut. It is through concerts that we can feel responses. We are able to feel that SHINee are growing up with fans at concerts.

SHINee’s Interview with JILLE
Q: The lyrics have expressions about women such as “long-haired” or “pretty girl,” how would you portray your ideal type?
MH: Surely one-piece dress. I like a sweet and womanly girl.
TM: I like a bit bad girl.
JH: Do you like being harassed by a bad girl?
TM: No, I like a bad girl who listens to me (laugh). A girl who is nice only to me?
ON: I rather like a short-haired girl.
MH: with very short hair?
Q: as short as Key’s?
ON: (in Japanese looking at Key) You are… pretty (anata kirei).
KY: what?! (laugh)
ON: haha I’m attracted to a girl who acts unexpectedly. A girl who can bounce in the unpredictable direction is interesting.
KY: As in the lyrics, I like a girl in short pants with blond hair. A blond is rare, but I like someone who can express personality in hairstyle.
JH: I like a sweet girl. Appearance doesn’t matter.
Q: Then, given a chance to date your ideal girl in summer, where would you go?
JH: I’d like to have bike date. However, I can’t ride bike (laugh), so my girlfriend will travel all over the country with me at the back of her bike. It will be exhausting but I think it will make good memories.
MH: I want to go to Namsan, Seoul. There’s Namsan Tower and a nice trail to it. I’d like to walk on it. How about you, Taemin?
TM: It’s hot in summer, and I’m sensitive to heat. So I won’t see her in summer. Although I don’t go outside, It is okay for her to come to my place (laugh).
ON: I’ll go around in search of delicious food.
KY: Jojoen? (bulgogi restaurant at Roppongi)
ON: Why are you deciding what I want to eat? (laugh) I’ll find what I want to eat myself!
KY: (laugh) I used to say I’d like shopping for date, but I changed my mind. I want to go on vacation in a hot country.
Q: What made you change your mind?
KY: We had Boys Meet U MV shoot at Okinawa. Since we worked with Japanese staff, it shows our usual style but with a different feel. Through the shoot, I thought I’d go on vacation in summer…
Q: Did you have personal time at Okinawa?
JH: I only worked…..
KY: Four of us had a little free time.
ON: About 10 minutes? We went into the sea.
TM: It was hot, but we had fun.
JH: …..I only worked……..
Q: (laugh) Is there anything you want to do during the remaining summer days?
ON: I’d like to go jet-skiing.
JH: I don’t like it. Because it’s scary (laugh). I’d like only five of us to have a drink without staff (laugh).
KY: We did at Christmas~ I hope people will like our new summer style song and come to our concert.
A: Good Talker / B: Good Listener
ON: A. I like a two-way conversation.
JH: A. I like a good talker.
KY: A. I’m a good listener (so like a good talker?)
MH: B. Someone who listens to me and talks the same language.
TM: A. someone who talks the same language.
A: Good personality / B: Cute person
ON: B. I can change personality (laugh)
JH: A. A girl with good personality looks cute. (laugh)

MH: A. Appearance matters, but personality weighs more.
TM: A. A girl with good personality looks cute. (laugh)
A: Skirt / B: Pants
ON: A. I like a girl who looks good in one-piece dress.
JH: A. It’s skirt for girls!
KY: B. I like short pants.
MH: A. I prefer a girl who looks better in skirt than in pants.
TM: A. Maybe because I’m still young?
A: Sexy girl / B: Boyish girl
ON: A. Aren’t we attracted more to a sexy girl?
JH: A. A boyish girl is attractive but not my type.
KY: halfway between sexy and boyish.
MH: A. more attracted to a sexy girl?
TM: A. I like a womanly type.
A: Short hair / B: Long hair
ON: A. It doesn’t look good on everyone.
