Epop: As a member of DBSK, do you feel that you've grown?

JJ: Yes, DBSK has fulfilled my dreams, I've got to know the other members, been touched, and be surrounded by celebration and happiness. If I never entered DBSK, I would never get to feel this way. I've also grown more mature. Look at the other members and you'd know.


Epop: To you, in what way have the other members matured?

JJ: During our training days, Changmin was the youngest among us, and he was
always on his guard against others, and was full of negativity. But now, he's able to think clearly and do things with a positive attitude, and I'm happy to see this change in him.

When we first debut, Yunho was someone who was very opinionated, but after he became the leader, he would always consider the feelings of others, and was extremely responsible. Yoochun has become more lively, and mature and

Junsu..!...is still like a kid (laughs), natural and innocent. I'm not saying that he didn't grow though; his singing got a lot better!



Epop: Everyone knows that DBSK speaks Japanese really well, isn't it?

JJ: Actually, before our debut, we studied Chinese and Japanese, but before we went to Japan, we forgot everything. Japanese was something that we picked again up after we went to Japan. (Epop: so who's the most fluent?) We're all pretty much the same, but Changmin's standard is the highest. He knows a lot of words that aren't used frequently, even by the Japanese! (CM: Thats why whenever I'm memorizing those words, people think im weird)



Epop: Everyone has seen DBSK's growth. Do you feel the same?

YH: Yes. I like to convey my emotions to everyone, and communicate with them. It's the same now. Before, I'd always tell people of my thoughts, but now I've learned to listen more. It could be that my tolerance has increased. because I'm the leader, I've to work hard for everyone. I'm very conscious of this, so before I do anything, I'd think about my responsibilities.



Epop: Yunho always gives everyone a sense of satisfaction. Don't you ever lose your emotions?

YH: The reason is as such. Back then in high school, I've met some unfair teachers. Even when the student isn't in the wrong, the teachers would not acknowledge it. I would ask boldly "Am I the one who's wrong?" and I also disliked bullies. Ever since was young I had a strong sense of justice. (laughs) But now I'm actually good friends with those I couldn't stand before. Ha~



Epop: Can you tell us what is DBSK's ideal live performance?

YH: It has been 4 years since our debut, and there should be some self-awareness. How should I say this? It may sound a little weird, but every singer has their own x-factor. If they know their x-factor well, they can hold a concert that best suits them. If you don't know yourself well, no matter what sort of concert is held, it would be meaningless. So, get to know yourself better, and the performance that best suits you is the most ideal one.



Epop: When did you start being aware that you're part of DBSK? (As in, when did the awareness get to him)

Yoochun: From watching the beginning of Cassiopeia, and being with other members, all these lets me know of the 'realness' of my position. (As a DBSK member)



Epop: When you go on stage now, do you feel nervous?

Yoochun: At concerts, the palpitation of my heart does increase. I remember, after we released our first album in Korea, everyone seemed pretty much more at ease, and the nervousness of being incompetent disappeared. It was the same in japan when we first had out activities there. We were worried that no one would know who we are, but after seeing how the fans supported us, we're really happy.



Epop: we get the feeling that Yoochun is a sensitive person, and is able to
empathize with others?

Yoochun: I guess this is a habit I've cultivated during my stay in the US. We can't just care about ourselves, and we need to care about others too.Interacting with people who work hard together with you, you'd slowly see a change in yourself too. You'd wanna express all your thoughts and feelings in the best way you can, and start to believe in others. ^__^



Epop: Do you feel that DBSK's fans are increasing up to an unbelievable level?

Yoochun: Um..when we went to Paris for our photoshoot, we felt very surprised. I've also heard fans saying that Korean culture has spread all the way to France, especially that of the entertainment scene, which has a huge influence. I've also heard that BoA's name has appeared in textbooks. So I'm very thankful to the European fans.



Epop: What were Junsu's troubles during youth?

JS: Speaking of troubles, it would be during the three years of high school, when my voice was changing. back then, I really wanted to sing, yet i couldn't, so I felt very frustrated and cried a lot. Due to this, I was very irritable, but my mother always supported me. And there's my brother who helped me through this difficult period of time. I'm really thankful to him. Twins usually feel the same thing at the same time. Its really weird/interesting. Whenever he's happy or sad, I'm able to feel it too.



Epop: The relationship between you guys are great, and its really enviable! But
recently everyone seems to be on a high, and teasing Junsu a lot. Why is this so?

JS: Honestly speaking, whenever the members are answering questions and find it
troublesome or do not wanna answer, they'd direct the question to me, probably because they feel like I'm easy to bully! Haha~



Epop: Even though DBSK dances everyday, we've also heard that your exercises include cycling, is that so?

JS: Yes! In Japan, each of us bought our own bikes, and its the really ordinary kind, that comes only in black and white. Although we can't ride very far, but if its japan we're talking about, we might be able to go from Yokohama to the beach! (Jaejoong: It's only a thought that crossed our minds!) But we'd always spend an hour cycling. Sometimes two members would go, sometimes three. (Epop: so who cycles the fastest?) Jaejoong! He can cycle really fast!



Epop: You started training at a really young age, and not a lot of people know about this, do they?

CM: Back then I didn't tell anyone about my becoming a trainee and decision to debut. My close friends didn't know, and I even kept it from my friends with whom I never keep secrets from. I guess it was due to fear.


Epop: What about after your debut and becoming a singer?

CM: Actually, after my debut, even though I found myself with more friends, I felt more lonely. Perhaps people who give the ordinary Changmin any love do not exist. After my debut, I couldn't even go out and have fun with my best friends. During a period of time, I really envied those who could go to school.



Epop: We get the feeling that Changmin's become livelier. But do you still feel lonely most of the time?

CM: The members find this weird. But there are times when I've got so much to say, and times when I do not make a sound. There isn't any 'in between'. But when I start and get all excited, there's no stopping me.



And the text below in the last pic above is just congratulatory stuff, saying how their concerts are a success, & how they're conquering Asia & all that.




Nothing too major here, they're saying that DBSK has been to all parts of the world this year and they're asked to pick dishes that left an impression on them. JS chose the baguette (France), YC chose nasi lemak (Malaysia), JJ chose mapo tofu (China) , CM: chose Thai food [name not specified], and YH chose a Taiwanese bento!

oh my gosh! can't believe Yoochun will pick Nasi lemak! makes me proud to be a Malaysian. ^^ though i still don't believe yoochun will like nasi lemak. I thought they would look after to what they eat. nasi lemak is quite fattening (that's why i don't normally eat ) But still! I have to support my own country!!! best place to find delicious food and it's cheap!!!!
