[NEWS] 101228 Singer Jay Park holds first show of nationwide tour

Singer Jay Park held the first show of his nationwide tour in Seoul over the weekend, according to his agency SidusHQ on Tuesday.

Sidus announced in a press release that the 22-year-old singer held two series of shows for his concert titled "White Love Party Concert" at the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on Christmas Eve with another performance in Busan at the KBS Hall on December 26.

He kicked off the concert donning a black suit, singing his single "Count On Me" and shared the stage with rap duo Supreme Team and Gonzo.

The show continued with a performance with dance team AOM member Cha Cha for the song "Speechless," Park's rendition of singer Na Yoon-kwon's song "Lean On Me" and a special serenade.

He also sang a number of his hit tunes including the remix version of "Bestie" and pop songs such as "Run It," "Take You Down," "Down" and "Demon" from the soundtrack of his upcoming movie "Hype Nation."

"I am very happy to have spent Christmas with my fans. I want to thank all of those fans who came to see the concert," Park was quoted as saying.

Park, whose Korean name is Park Jae-beom, has been one of the most popular singers in the Korean music industry since debuting as a member of 2PM in 2008.

He parted with the group last year after stirring controversy over remarks he wrote regarding Korea during his trainee period.

He kicked off his solo career this year after signing with major talenthouse Sidus HQ and has released several single albums since.

[TRANS] 101222 2PM Oricon Japan Special Interview Final Part

In Order to Maintain your Forged Bodies…

Your physical beauty is praised as one of your charms; what do you do in order to maintain [your bodies]?
Taecyeon: If I don’t exercise, my muscles will fade away so no matter how tough our schedule is, I keep up my body-building even if it’s only little by little.

Surely, it’s like whatever doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger.
Nichkhun: For all that, it’s not an easy thing. If there’s a little bit of free time, I go to the gym and train. In recent days, we haven’t been able to go to the gym such and, on the contrary, I’ve become somewhat stressed.

You’ve won many awards and you’re popular in many Asian countries; from now on, in Japan, is there a goal you’re aiming for or a dream you have?
Wooyoung: I want to us be recognized by everyone in Japan as artists who make the best performances!

A specific objective you particularly want to try to do?
Taecyeon: (I want to stand on the stage of) Tokyo Dome! But this is a really big goal.
Nichkhun: Like Wooyoung said, I want us to become recognized as top artists even in Japan. But we’ve only just debuted; we’re only standing at the starting point and we aren’t well known so continuing to exert ourselves, trying with all our might, I hope 2PM’s existence will be known by many people.
Junsu: I want us to become artists who have a strong impression on many people; artists who are charming and emit individuality.

You all have so much popularity and yet, you have such modest demeanors. I was surprised>
2PM(all members): (In Japanese)No, no, that’s not so at all.

Nichkhun: All of us hate to lose.
Junho: We’re not really modest, that’s how I really feel.

Unexpectedly, your debut even was at the Ryokokugikan [Sumo Stadium] and weren’t all three performances full?! So you might be able to do things like [perform at] the Tokyo Dome, don’t you all think so?
2PM: (In Japanese) No, no, that’s not so at all.

Wooyoung: (In Japanese) We will try our best!

Important News from 2PM!!

By the way, what is your impression of Japanese fans?
Junsu: I have the strong impression that their feelings are really profound. When they heard that we’re returning to Korea in a little while, there were some people that shed tears. When I found out, I was really grateful; we were loved by everyone and I became encouraged.

I imagine Japanese fans desire for you to do lots of activities in Japan so what are your plans from now on?
Taecyeon: Next year, we're planning [to release] a single in Japanese and our Zepp Tour, in the spring, has also been confirmed! We're thinking of having opportunities to directly meet our fans in the provinces as well as the sorrounding (areas in Japan).

That's big news. Again, of your activities up to now, what has left the biggest impression on you, an obstacle that you had to surmount, is there one thing you could tell us about?
Junho: U~m... I can't choose one thing. In the long span of these two years, there's really been a lot of incidents and everyday was a conquest of a tribulation. I've lived everyday personally fighting for myself.

So did the 2 years gone by in the blink of an eye? Were they long?
Tacyeon: A really quick, split second.
Chansung: Just now, the experiences of the [past] 2 years raced through my head like a revolving lantern.

From now on, if you will be able to steadily increase your memories of and in Japan, [please do so].
Taecyeon: (In Japanese) Of course [we will].
Junho: Our even at Ryokokugikan has become the first memory of our Japanese activities

Well then, lastly, is there anything you would like to tell your Japanese fans?
Chansung: We are truly grateful that you have showered us with lots of love even though we come from a foreign country. I want to try even harder and meet with everyone directly. My desire to really study Japanese with the utmost effort has been strengthened.

Next time, I definitely want to have a conversation in Japanese [with you]!
2PM: (In Japanese) We will work hard at studying Japanese!

[TRANS] 101222 2PM Oricon Japan Special Interview Part 4

INTERVIEW 4 - Their Stage Gap...?!

Some Kinds of Pressure are Worth it
---Now, please tell us your thoughts on your first live in Japan which you performed yesterday (December 8) at Ryogoku Kokugikan.
[Junho] (in Japanese) I was really moved!
[Junsu] (in Japanese) The people of Japan were the best!
[Taecyeon] I had heard that the place "Ryogoku Kokugikan" was a sacred place for the beasts of Japan [t/n: reference to it being a place that normally holds Sumo wrestler tournaments] so I think it was definitely an appropriate place for us "Beast Idols." I would be very happy if those in Japan were also able to get the impression that 2PM = "Beast Idols."
[Wooyoung] At first I was nervous because honestly, the place was vastly spacious, but I was relieved upon seeing that so many people had filled up the seating area, and simultaneously, I received a lot of power from everyone there.
[Nichkhun] I, too, thought that I would be able to do well in Japan after being able to meet all the Japanese fans directly, and because of the love I received from so many people like that, I was able to possess a lot of self-confidence.
[Chansung] In order to live up to everyone's wishes I felt I had to exert more effort than ever and I wanted them to see our performances so that many more people would get to know about our existence. Thank you all so much for coming once again!

---How did you feel when you heard that your first Japanese DVD release got 4th place on the DVD weekly ranking (2nd place on the DVD weekly music ranking!), accomplishing an unprecedented achievement?
[Junsu] I was genuinely extremely happy! And yet, while I was thankful that we were able to get such a high ranking before we had even begun promotions in Japan, a lot of pressure arose in a positive way from the increase in attention.
[Taecyeon] There are some kinds of pressure that are worth it.

Normally They're Rather Relaxed! Their Stage Gap is......
---That's certainly true. Please tell us the main point of the DVD and the main point of the album once again.
[Taecyeon] The DVD allows everyone to see with their own eyes how far we've come along. Rather than having a particular highlight, we want you to see for yourself in what ways we have or haven't changed. The CD is similar to that, as it condenses into 1 item the locus of the activity we've done so far in Korea, and so we would like it if you would ascertain the changes and growth we've made through both of those.

---The same with your live performances, I don't think there is anyone else who has a DVD with such high quality dance performances that overflow with originality, but are there any parts of the dances that are troublesome and you therefore must pay attention to?
[Wooyoung] I would say the acrobatic parts since there are a lot of them and we can't allow ourselves to get injured. We're forced to take a break when there's an injury, so that's where we have trouble.
[Chansung] Every time we release a new album we have the challenge of making a new performance. If it's not [a challenging, new performance], we'll speak our disapproval. It's all about what our fans are expecting, so we can't do something that's average, all the members share a common feeling that we want to show everyone something beyond expectations.
[Wooyoung] Everyone always matches their strengths and breathing for our performances, but there are times when we pull off a great performance that had been really difficult for us to challenge, and the delight and sense of accomplishment we get from that is immeasurable.
[Chansung] For this reason, we are even more greedy in trying to show an even higher level performance for the next time.

---That kind of repetition will steadily raise the level [of difficulty] for sure. This type of advanced performances started with 2PM and there's a lot of charm attached to that, but where do you personally believe 2PM's unbeatable charm exists?
[Chansung] As "Beast Idols" there's a lot of emphasis on things like charisma and manliness, but we have the same feelings as other boys of our generation and have rather relaxed attitudes. We get told by our Korean fans and Japanese staff that there's a tremendous gap between what we're like onstage and what we're like offstage (laugh). That in itself can be seen as another charm of ours.

[TRANS] 101222 2PM Oricon Japan Special Interview Part 3

t/n: So here is part 3 of the oricon interview. But before you read it there's one problem oraday and i had with translating this. In the last section the boys are asked to teach the japanese fans something in korean and i was going to romanize the korean (it's not actually in korean letters but katakana), but my knowledge of korean isn't that great so i'm sure i wrote a couple of them wrong. I know the one for Junsu is super wrong since i gave up trying to figure it out and just wrote the direct romanization of the katakana. lol

INTERVIEW 3 - Preferred Girl Type & Korean Words You Want to Teach

The Type of Girl You Like...?!
---Well then, please tell us what type of girl you like.
[Chansung] A person who looks charming. A person who is honest but happens to have a shy face.

---Because those points correspond to you, yourself?
[Chansung] I guess you could say that.

---As for Nichkhun?
[Nichkhun] I'm also similar as [I like] a person that is both honest and has a shy face. Also, [I like] a girl who respects her own parents. Rather than a girl who's outer appearance is pretty, isn't a girl with an attractive inner self good?

---The inside is what counts?
[Nichkhun] That's right!
[Wooyoung] Someone who loves me. Someone who has sympathy and who will often come to me to talk.

---So communication must be important?
[Wooyoung] Yes. It's the most important.

---As for Taecyeon?
[Taecyeon] Someone who engrosses themself in what they do, and who works their hardest. And, I would like that person to properly take care of me somewhere between all that.

---You're saying you like a girl who can handle both her work life and personal life.
[Taecyeon] Correct.

---As for Junho?
[Junho] (in Japanese) The type of girl I like is......someone regular.

---Do you like or dislike someone who has a flashy outward appearance?
[Junho] Rather than a flashy appearance, what's more important is someone who will love me and who's wonderful on the inside. Lately I'm becoming more and more aware [that those qualities are important].

---As for Junsu?
[Junsu] I like someone who has a beautiful smile. Someone who works their hardest and is kind.

---So I'm guessing you all like someone who will run to you.
[Junsu] I guess so.

What Korean words would you like your Japanese fans to remember?
---By the way, is there anything in Korean you want to teach your Japanese fans to remember?
[Wooyoung] "Areumdawo yo." It means (it's) beautiful.
[Junho] "Junho-ya, saranghae." Junho, I love you.
[All] (laugh)
[Taecyeon] "Yaksok hae jwo." Promise me.

---It's similar to the Japanese word. [t/n: the equivalent of the Korean word "yaksok" in Japanese is "yakusoku." the two are pronounced really similarly]
[Taecyeon] I picked that one since it's similar to the Japanese word.

---You were worried about the Japanese fans.
[Nichkhun] "Bap meogeosseo?" Have you eaten?
[Chansung] "Ddo manna yo." See you later.
[Junsu] "na ran no ra bo ru re yo?" Won't you play with me?
[All] (laugh).
[Junsu] Um~ by no means am I a shady guy. I'm more pure than anyone! So please don't misunderstand!

[Trans] 2PM Special Interview from KanryuPia Magazine issue 12/2

Jap-Thai: Jujang @2pmalways | Thai-Eng: Muize @2pmalways TAKE OUT WITH CREDITS
Injury caused by performance is unavoidable
When talking about 2PM, acrobatic is somehow referred to them

JH:Acrobatic inflicts many injuries on us like in [Heartbeat]& [Without U].Ones from [I’ll be back] made me realize how to abstain from getting hurt, to perform charismatically and to impress the audience. I’ve learned from other singers’ MVs and ask others

Junsu was injured this year. At the very beginning of [Don’t Stop Can’t Stop], he had knee tendonitis and was rushed to hospital during a recording causing the temporary absence from 2PM. Same problem happened with him back when they were the opening band for Wonder Girls in America. 10 fingers of his were sutured

JS:Precisely, there are a lot of injuries. As on my knee, at first I didn’t think it was a severe pain so I decided not to go to the hospital. After comeback for 3 weeks, when we won th 1st place for the 1st time, I couldn’t even stand. Members said to me “Don’t be sorry and get well real soon”. That’s very touching
JH:In addition to physical training, I’ll do some practice on my image during the time that injury isn’t fully healed. Endeavor’s not only concrete (but also abstract), is it? We’re all trying, it’s just we have our own ways to present it

Love of beast is romantic!? Understanding is ideal type of love

Their solo careers are on the rise. Taecyeon and Wooyoung have been chosen for [Dream High] which is now talk of the town being scheduled to be broadcast next year. This drama is about life and love of high school student and is the cooperation of Bae Yong Joon’sKEYEAST and Park Jin Young’s JYP Entertainment. Park Jin Young once said Wooyoung was his most anticipated member of 2PM

WY: I think the meaning of it is “try harder and be more attentive” since I’m the shortest-trained member. It’s like an encouragement “be positive to theexpectation”

This is Taecyeon’s 2nd drama. The 1st one is [Cinderella’s Sister] in which he played an important role and received positive feedback. Weask him about the similarity of him and the role

I’m Jung Woo who is constant in love. I’d like you take a look at that guy who does everything for just one girl. Jung Woo loves Eun Jo since he was a kid, similar to me. My ideal type of love is understanding. If I love someone, I’ll continue loving her. Love at sight never happens. As an actor, I still lack of experience and have lots to learn but I’ll try

Nichkhun is now a make-belief husband of f(x)’s Victoria in [We Got Married].When we ask him about the rumor of them dating, surrounding members become more alert than him…

TY&CS:Screammmmmmm! Everything is perfect!

NK: (laughs) yeah, everything is amazing. Victoria has been kind to me and trying real hard. We look very compatible, aren’t we? Filming it is not easy but I have a good time

Being born in abroad with splendid appearance which drives Korean girls crazy, how Nichkhun is going to make a surprise for his girlfriend on their 100 days anniversary?

NK: I grew up abroad so “100 days anniversary” first heard when I came to Korea. If I have to do one, I’m gonna make it romantic like having a wonderful dinner, giving a present and singing her a song

Nichkhun has told us his sweet dream but most of 2PM’s songs are always men’ painful love songs so we ask Chansung, who always sings broken-heart songs, about his ideal type of love

CS: Always being dumped in songs (laughs) My ideal is someone who shares the same dream
TY: It means being a singer? anidol?
CS:Taecyeonhyung, be silent! No, sharing the same dream means getting along well and understanding each other. I think that’s called ideal

TY: Hope your love will be beautiful (laughs). My ideal too, if we understand each other, though there’s a fight, we still understand perfectly well and we’ll get through it eventually. I’d like to fall in love with that girl!

A recommendation place for a date?

CS: I’d like to go out with her. I love the sea in winter so I’ll go to JeongdongJin to watch sunrise in the windy weather (Jeongdongjin is a place where lovers go to see the sunrise)

TY: How romantic! In fact, I’m very busy so I’m able to meet her only at night. Then I’ll take her to see night view at N Seoul Tower or the Han River and ride a boat

Their naughty expression such appearing in [10 points out of 10] mv is being revealed while talking about love. It’s different from their beastly image and somewhat fascinating. After debut in Japan, japanese medias is likely to see more natural sides of theirs in the future

On Thursday, Changmin uploaded a picture of himself, Seulong and Chansung at the gym with a comment underneath saying, "We are the black tank-tops and black track pants brothers. We all came separately but we're all wearing the same clothes. (laugh) Seulong is busy working out >_<."

Fans who have seen the photo responded, "wow...seems u guys are having fun...^~^," "oppa!!! you guys are looking hot" and "Wow, impressive!"

Changmin and Seulong made their debut in the four-member ballad group 2AM in 2008. They released their first full-length album "Saint o'clock" this year and are busy preparing for their first-ever concert for three days starting tonight.

[INFO]Dream High : Taecyeon & Wooyoung character

Jason (17 y.o.)/Jang Wooyoung

Comes back from USA unexpectedly and enters Kirin High

Has great dancing and singing abilities, but has no
interest in competing with others. He simply enjoys it.

He's laid back and even lazy to the point that he can
easily fall asleep before a test or an important

His dance skills makes Jinguk nervous, and his singing
is obviously threatening to Samdong (Kim Suhyun's character)

Jaeson's Story (Jang Wooyoung)
Speaks English only when it's necessary.
When he needs to pick up girls, or disregard
some overconfident guy...

Good points
Inborn dancing, singing, rapping skills. Rich background
in New Jersey. Handsome, gifted with a whole set of
a top star talent.

Bad points
Has no will to succeed in dancing. It's just for fun...

Jason, Just Enjoy~!

Singing and dancing is only for fun.
Jinguk (18y.o.)/Ok Taecyeon
Real name Hyun Shihyeok. Always looks outgoing and
bright, but deep inside his heart there's a wound
that doesn't heal.

He was left in an orphanage at a very young age by
his single mother. Not long after he was left at the
orphanage he was adopted by Hyun Mujin, a chairman
of his father's famous group. Jinguk was not happy
in that house, treated like an invisible person.
Eventually he dropped out of high school, left home
and began living a new life under the name of Jinguk.

While spending time with his street friends, dancing,
he accidentaly found himself at Kirin High School
audition one day...

Jinguk's story

Treasure No.1 external harddrive full of porn.
Treasure No.2 motorcycle
Hobby: Sitting at the bottom of the stairs and
appreciating high school girls in mini skirts walking
up and down the stairs.

Good points.
Tall, handsome, dances well. As he captures female
hearts well, he coaches Samdong about love life.
Bad points.
Can't sing. Always laughs off and evades answering
when someone approaches him sincerely.
Jinguk, the moment I hear the music, the world is mine!!

[TRANS] 101222 2PM Oricon Japan Special Interview Part 2

INTERVIEW 2 - The No.1 XX in 2PM is?

The No.1 Member Who Cannot Stand to Lose!!
---As for 2PM's No.1 mood maker, would it be Junsu?
[Wooyoung] Junsu's one too, but Nichkhun and Taecyeon...are the No.1 mood makers.

---Then, who is the No.1 most gentle in 2PM?
[Junsu] I would say Nichkhun. He's very gentle, and he's the kind of person who can be courteous and considerate to the people around him. However, everyone mutually worries about each other, so I think all the members are gentle.

---That's wonderful. Now, who is the No.1 most manly in 2PM?
[All] Taecyeon.
[Junsu] He is both manly on the outside and on the inside! He's also very emotional! Taecyeon can do just about anything in a manly way!
[Taecyeon] (in Japanese) Thank you (bright smile).
[Junsu] However, there's also the childish side of him that likes manga and video games (laugh).

---Who is 2PM's No.1 "my pace" [t/n: person who does things at their own pace]?
[Nichkhun] Junho. He's the type of person who is strongly self-assertive and is the type to go through with whatever he decides to do! It makes it so that he's not only No.1 for "my pace" but for 2PM's power of concentration too.

---Now, who is No.1 in 2PM who cannot stand to lose?
[Junho] (immediately) That would be everyone.
[Junsu] Dance lessons and the like can be painfully hard and there are times when someone will say "I'm tired," but no one ever gives up.
[Nichkhun] I really hate to lose! (smiling to his ears) "Don't Stop Can't Stop" (2PM song)!!

---The No.1 most emotional person (fragile tears) in 2PM is?
[Junsu] Hmm, who would it be? Maybe Junho.
[Nichkhun] That may be true.
[Wooyoung] No matter what happens, he takes every blow that comes to him with a straight face.
[Junsu] But the one who gets the most emotional when watching movies is Chansung.

---Now, who is the No.1 most like an adult in 2PM?
[Taecyeon] I think everyone has both an adult side and a child side to them. There are members who scold a lot, and there are members who [ask the others to] please clean up.

---While on the topic, which member scolds and which asks to clean up?
[Taecyeon] The scolding is done by Nichkhun, while Wooyoung is the "one who cleans up" (laugh).

The members get to brag, the No.1 XX in 2PM is...?!
---Now the other way, what do you think you are No.1 for in 2PM?
[Nichkhun] I think I am No.1 for language (being able to speak many languages).
[Taecyeon] I am No.1 for my excellent points (laugh).
[Nichkhun] Also, Taecyeon is No.1 for self-confidence.

---There's a lot of effort involved with that.
[Taecyeon] It of course takes a lot of effort, and I've been blessed with more than enough.

---There's also the No.1 owner of good fortune. So, how about Chansung?
[Chansung] I'm the No.1 glutton (laugh).

---In an interview, you said the Japanese you had recently memorized was "all-you-can-eat" (laugh).
[Chansung] (In Japanese) I love all-you-can-eat! (laugh)

---By the way, what do you want to eat now?
[Chansung] I just ate tons of yakiniku bentos so nothing's coming to mind right now (laugh). ......But, (In Japanese) they were really delicious!
[Junsu] My voice being the loudest is No.1. I can't lose raising my voice the loudest to anyone (laugh).

---That must be very important as a vocalist. For that reason, I think Junsu must feel a strong sense of being in songs.
[Junsu] (bright smile)(in Japanese) Not yet. I'll try my best!

---And Junho?
[Junho] I'm No.1 for eye smile. I also have the No.1 butt (laugh).

---You're confident with your hip line?
[Junho] Rather than that, mine is the biggest among the members.
[Wooyoung] Junsu just told me this, but my humor is No.1.
[Nichkhun] He's also No.1 for being able to do a funny dance.

---Funny dance?
[Nichkhun] Hip dance.
[All] (laugh).

---So you're boasting about your butt.
[Nichkhun] (in Japanese) Go ahead and do it.
[Wooyoung] (in Japanese) No way! I won't do it today (laugh).

[TRANS] 101222 2PM Oricon Japan Special Interview

2PM "Beast Idols"
Special Interview
A Thorough Analysis of 2PM's Appeal!

On the day after their first Japan Concert, we carried out an interview. During their tough schedule, each member courteously answered our questions one by one. Because of their looks full of manliness, flawless physical beauty, and the high grade performances they give, at first glance, they give an impression of being cool and unapproachable. However, the nature of these six men is one of pleasant youths, exceedingly openhearted and modest and overflowing with humor.

The Members Reveal! Each of Their Characters

From the other members’ point of view, what is each one’s strong point or most attractive feature?!

Please tell us the strong point or most attractive feature of a member.
Junho: Taecyeon is really a man amongst men! He makes good on his promises! When he’s struck with an idea, he immediately does it!

He sure is a trustworthy person!
Junho: His (outer) appearance is as trustworthy as the inside! And he has leadership qualities.

What about Nichkhun?
Nichkhun: (clearing his throat) *cough, cough* (Laughs).
Taecyeon: Nichkhun’s outer appearance and his inside match. From his appearance, he gives off a feeling of having manners, seeming kind and gentle, right?

Yes, he sure does.
Taecyeon: He’s like that on the inside as well. He’s really a person whose inside and outside are uniform. He is incredibly considerate; he’s always worrying about the members.
Nichkhun: (In Japanese) Thank you.

What about Chansung?
Wooyoung: His appearance is very manly and he seems tough but Chansung is immensely abundant in sensitivity. As a person who watches movies by himself and cries, he comes complete with sensitivity. Moreover, his ability to concentrate is incredible; he’s a person whose strong point is that once he decides to do something, he’ll be thoroughly immersed and he’ll see it through to the end.
Chansung: Thank you for saying such nice things about me.

As for Junho?
Taecyeon: Junho is manly and very cool. Whatever he does, he does it to the very end. He possesses strength of will and he’s a person who becomes everyone’s role model.
Junho: (Japanese) No, not so at all (bashful laugh).

Well then, what is Wooyoung’s strong point?
Junsu: He’s got sense, right? His gag sense is especially amazing!
Wooyoung: (Japanese) No, not so at all.
Junsu: Wooyoung’s personality is similar to mine. Even though I’m older, when I come in contact with someone younger than me, I easily assimilate [their behavior] (Laughs).
Wooyoung: I’m sorry….
Junsu: But when we’re together, the mood becomes incredibly fun.

In contrast, how is Junsu, from Wooyoung’s point of view?
Wooyoung: His strong point? U~m (Pretense of being worried)…. He doesn’t have one.
Everyone: (Laughs)

Huh? (Laughs)
Wooyoung: It’s a joke, of course!
Junsu: Every time he does that, everyone livens up.

Nichkhun: I have one! Junsu’s strong point is that he is immensely skilled at singing!
Wooyoung: Singing as well as dancing, he can do anything skillfully.

An area of the other members that you want to fix….

Conversely, is there an area that you want to fix? Is there such a thing as being too perfect?
Taecyeon: Rather than perfection, I’m resigned to everyone['s flaws].
Nichkhun: I get up early so it’s my duty to wake everyone up everyday but really, none of them get up early (laughs).
Chansung: He’s the type to be okay even if he doesn’t sleep much.

By the way, about how many hours do you usually sleep?
Nichkhun: About 5 hours. But, on days off, we sleep for about 7 hours.

Do you wake up even without an alarm clock?
Nichkhun: [The alarm clock] always chimes but I get up before that. I wake up about 5 minutes before the set time.

In contrast, is there a person who is bad at waking up? Who is the person that doesn’t wake up even if shaken awake?
Nichkhun: (Points finger) It’s Chansung.

Do any of you have difficulty falling asleep?
Chansung: Maybe because my ability to concentrate is excellent, I become unable to sleep at night (laughs).
Junho: He’s slow at sleeping in itself, don’t you think?
Junsu: I’m good at waking up but I can’t get up immediately. I always squirm around in my bed for about 10 minutes. Even if there’s something to do, I always squirm and squirm… I’m probably a little scatterbrained (laughs).

Is that so!?
Junsu: No, it’s a joke (laughs).

Type of girls? Living together, how do they share rooms or clean up?Being titled as “Beast idols”, which member deserves it the most….!? We have searched everything you’d like to know about them, check it out!!

Characters, cosplays 2PM Search
Beast, rabbit,chef, evil, angel, doctor ....... whose characters are they?
ViVi has prepared 6 different costoms, what will they be? Members have chosen it themselves and we reveal the real story!

WY: Chansung is a beast, his strong desire to win while playing games is unbelievable. He frequently yells “yes!” freaking scary
TY: Junho is an evil?
JH: Meaning if it is what I love then I will earnestly be determined about it even I have to hurt someone sometimes…(laughs)
CS:Junsu is a rabbit. He’s older but cute from time to time
JS: Thank you. I’ll try to be as cute as a rabbit
JH:Taceyeon is the best at cooking so he’s a chef. Tteokbokki which he made before is delicious
TY: Nichkhun is an angel
JH: Same here. It’s like seeing angel’s wings. At that moment, he was watching TV and writing something down so I asked what it was then he shyly replied “UNICEF’s telephone number”. I’ve been suggested as well but still trying (laughs)
NK: Wooyoung likes to help people so he’s a doctor
WY: Completely agree with that character (laughs)

(Caption under photo on the right side)before decorating their clothes,members are making a noise such “Rabbit is good” “Evil is not for me”. Finally they put on evil horn or place beast’s nose on theirs showing their playful side
(Next to Taceyeon standing along photo)when ask “Is there anyone who’s pleased with chosen character”Their answers synchronize “Nichkhun’s character!” but he shyly refuses “I know myself perfectly well so I’m no angel”

Part of body Proud Search
Which part of the body are you proud of?

NK: Palms
My body is not that big hence I prefer both of my arms. Their muscles are beautiful like ones of Bruce Lee that’s why I love lifting dumbbells to see them bulging. My palms are rough, they’re a man’s palms so proud!
I’m very proficient inlifting dumbbells. The reason I like it because it requires lots of strength which make me strong (laughs). I’m proud of my ears as well. It shows exceptional forms when meeting people so I love my ears (laughs)
JH:Left eye
It’ll turn tiny when smiling. Others always says “How nice. Looks like it is smiling”. I hardly understand but it’s what people say. And I’m proud of my butt! It’ll pop. Members all agree on that (laughs)
JS: Fingers
I find my hands small and been told several times that my fingers are beautiful. Maybe because of that, fingers become more useful than face in some commercial ads (laughs) Actually, I wish my shoulders would be wider because it looks manly so I’m going to strengthen it
Since I play soccer so I’m confident with my thighs. Thighs muscles bulge perfectly. Chansung often builds his muscles. If you look closely, you’ll be able to tell how well that person has trained. Chansung approves my thighs!
I often build muscles so I think my upper part of body is stronger. Especially chest, it’s thicker than usual. For facial part, I’m proud of my eyes. It expresses the feelings and I can wear contact lens easily. Still I’m not sure whether they’ll make girls fall for me…

Favorite snacks
They love eating bananas

NK: For training’s sake, we always eat banana. But actually, I prefer strawberry. I only eat strawberry flavored candies, jellies or chewing gums
TY: I don’t eat snacks. I’m the type that eats only meals to be full, period. But I often drink soda pop
JS: I like American candy "Sour Patch". It tastes pretty sour. When it comes to snacks, I and Nichkhun will become kids since we eat candies all the time
WY :I like cookies with chocolate in it. Because working out consumes much energy so some sweets are needed. But I’ll eat bananas when being on diet
JH: I love melons as a fruit and banana too. During trainingI eat it so much that I can feel its taste in my mouths now. But it’s amazing that I never feel sick of it
CS: Calories calculationis essential for exercising. Then I need to eat only what is necessary for health. Banana keeps body in equilibrium so I often have it before working out

10 points out of 10 Search
According to your single " 10 points out of 10" please tell us your special skills

NK: Piano
I learned it since 9 to 12 and quit then learned it again when I was 17. I’m good at playing Yiruma’s song, kiss the rain
I can remain under water for a long time. When shooting for diving scene, though there was an oxygen tank, I was able to remain there for 7 hours. My instructor praised “7 hours is incredible”. That’s my 10 points out of 10
JS: Singing
I’ve been into singing so I kept learning since I was young. Perhaps 6 out of points. It’s disappointing when perform “Yuki no Hana” Live in Osaka with bad condition of soar throat
I was adept in playing soccer at young age and competed in some games. But when I was in high school, I committed myself in dancing so my soccer skill is probably 5 points
Approximately 8. I got injured in bones last time so I can’t do it in our new songs, too bad. It’s a must in every songs…

I learned it when I was a kid but not anymore so sometimes I need to do some moves. 6 points out of 10 then. If there’s a chance, I’ll do it again since it’s still my favorite

A big kid who loves to play and this is the story of happy family!

Training Advice Search
What’s your training advice?

NK: Pushing ups
I’m skinny so I won’t do something like running but emphasize more on muscles. My advice to ViVi readers is pushing-ups. Doing as much as me will be too much so just 50 times will do. Do 10 sets of 5 repetitions. At the beginning, you’ll feela bit lazy it’s ok to let your knees touch the floor

TY:Going to fitness
Isn’t going to fitness the best way for training? Previously, I’d go there at night if there were no schedules and did it for about 2 hours. All these muscles were built by lift dumbbells. But I rarely go because I’m pretty busy…

JS:Running& Muscles building
There was time that I exercised like hell; 10 mins of running to build muscles then kept on running for 40 mins and had a cup of black coffee then ran again for 30 mins. I ate only chicken breast. Run for 2 weeks in a row will make you healthier so this is my advice. But it’s hard to keep doing…

My goal is to keep body muscles in balance because it’s important for break dance. Before modeling for this kind of photoshoot, I always do push-ups including doing it against the wall. But stretching is more proper for female, isn’t it? If you work hard on it, you’ll sweat. I think stretching is enough

JH: Pushing-ups &abdomen training
I used to do muscle building routines frequently but due to my back bones injury, I run and walk instead. Personally, I like sprinting. My advice would be pushing-ups &abdomen training. You don’t have to do it as hard as men do. Move your body about 10 times a day to keep bodyfirm!


For me, I’ll do muscles-training exercise like this; shoulders today, arms tomorrow, back the day after tomorrow. My advice is jogging for about 15-20 mins. Daily eating routine is important. Don’t just eat a big meal but eat a small one every 2 or 3 hours. You won’t gain weight easily

Personal belongings Search

NK: Favorite bookmark
JH: Japanese book
WY: Bag
CS: Hat

Members have revealed their personal belongings which often are carried recently. Khun, who was born in America, loves reading English books. Junho learn Japanese during the phototshoot. When being asked about their interest in fashions, they say “Casual style since we’re tired!”

Ideal girl How to hit on her Search

NK: Buy her a cup of coffee and get down to business
My ideal girl is someone who’s cute, nice and looks pretty when smiling. She pays respect to her parents. How to get to know her…supposing it’s a coffee shop and I’m going to buy her something by saying “How about a cup of coffee?” followed by changing seat “May I join you?” and talking

TY: A meeting like in a movie
Appearance is important but personality comes first. It’s to be perfect and not flirtatious, look only at me. She should be able to handle her stuffs well! Imagine running into her in a restaurant or classroom just like in a movie “Oh! I’m sorry” and kindly say “Let me buy this dirty shirt”

JS:No tactics for me!

My type is a girl with smiley face and she has to be constant in love. If I really fall in love, I’ll frankly say “Excuse me, I’d like to know your telephone number. Could I have it?” That’s what I’m going to say, no tricks nor tactics (members barge in "This is weak…way too weak!)

WY:Because of her voice, I like her
I’m shaken by girl’s voice. Not that special or anything, just something that I feel good when we talk. If she has that kind of voice then….i’ll go to convenient store to buy bottles of both hot and cold coffee and drag her along then ask “Which one would you like?” finally talk

JH: No giving up if I like her

She has to be a follower. I have no ideal appearance since my type keeps changing it means whatever, I’m fine (laughs) If I do like herthen… there’s Korean proverb “Where there's a Will, there's a way”There’s no giving-up if that is what my hearts chooses

CS: Girl with pretty eyes is my type
My type is a girl who talks brightly and has innocent eyes. To be close to her, first I’ll ask “what’s your name?” and start the convo with “where do you live?” “How old are you?” “You’ve got pretty eyes” finally ask her phone number….something like that! (feelingembarrased)

Sharing a rooms

room 01♥Taecyeonx Junsu
room 02♥Khunx Chansung
room 03♥Wooyoungx Junho

This is how rooms are shared ;TaecyeonxJunsu, KhunxChansung,WooyoungxJunho. Wooyoung and Chansung don’t sleep in their rooms but on the floor in the living room. Sometimes sleep in Khun’s bedroom because it’s filled with the scent of aroma which relaxes the body. Too many stuffs in Taecyeon and Junsu room, it’s impossible for 2 beds to fit it so they have to share 2-storey bed instead. Taecyeon sleep on the 1ststorey while Junsu has the 2nd one. Taeceyon has no free space to his own but it’s not a problem

Taking a showOrder Search
We don’t take a shower together (laughs)

Khun gets up first so he takes the shower first followed by Wooyoung then somebody wakes another up saying “Go take a shower!”. But when we ask if they do it together, they strongly say “No!!!!!!!!! it’s not gonna happen”
