Next, we'll continue with a fierce quiz contest!!
Eki-Suta - Tohoshinki (Micky & Max), 4/5 - Quiz (Drawing)
MC: now a corner Sapporo v. THSK!^^ in this corner, we'll quiz to see who knows the other better. To the winner goes jin-gi-sukan [marinated lamb. Yummy!] Do you like this?
YC/CM: we love it!
MC: the one who wins will get this, so fighting! Now, let's start.
Now since you've come to japan, we're sure you've had a lot of great memories. In Hokkaido, there is a dialect that's only understood in Hokkaido. Let's see if you know this word:
Do you know the meaning? Have you heard this word before?
YC: I've heard it before. Isn't it "to be able to tie up" [a form of "shibaru" -- to tie, to bind]?
MC: ah, "shibaru"! would you draw what you think it might mean? But it's not quite "shibaru". Imagine what it might mean, and draw for us. Viewers at home would know what it means.
[as a hint] around this time of the year, in winter, I tend to say this without knowing. Also think of the fans who've been waiting here since 5am... these are some hints.
Now, from YC. What is that?
YC: what IS this, really? [lol!] I went with the "to tie up" meaning.
MC: ah, it's a rope! Now CM.
CM: me, too... the person is being bound up.
MC: ah, also to bind.
MC2: how much do you guys want to tie up? [lol!] the answer is this: "shibareru" means "it's cold~".
YC: ah, it means "it's cold"?
MC: please say it for us.
YC: shibareru. Shibareru. [omg, YC's gesture is too cute!! And CM's smile is so cute, too!]
MC: yep, please remember it. In Tokyo.^^
Now next quiz:
Please draw the meaning for us.
YC: it's a different meaning, right? A hint?
MC: right, it's not kowai's kowai ["kowai" means to be scared, afraid]. A hint is... after a live performance...
Wow, very imaginative, and you draw so fast! Now, the regular "kowai" means scared, but...
Times up! YC?
MC: you get sleepy after a live performance?
YC: after it's over, since we get exhausted.
CM: I think...
YC: it's a guitar. [lol!]
CM: it's feeling good. "ah, it feels good," that meaning.
MC: I see, feeling good. The answer is this -- to be tired, like after running like this.
YC: ah, tired. It's so different [from the regular meaning]
MC: but it's close to being sleepy.
YC: ah, you're right.
MC: so you'd say, "kowai, kowai" after a live performance.^^
Eki-Suta - Tohoshinki (Micky & Max), 5/5 - Quiz (Korean)
MC: now the quiz from THSK. YC, the question, please~
YC: we have this question for you. When you propose, there is this saying:
"Until our hair turns as white as ________, let's stay together."
MC: "Until our hair turns as white as ________..."
"Until our hair turns as white as my teeth..." [lol!]
YC: it's different.
MC: answer is?
YC/CM: answer is green onion's roots [the roots of green onion / chive is like little white hairs^^]
YC: [in Korean] "Until our hair turns as white as green onion's roots, let's stay together." [T_T]
MC: ah, since this is special, please look into the camera and say it again. Like you're proposing. In Korean.
YC: [in Korean] "Until our hair turns as white as green onion's roots, let's stay together." [ah... T_T]
MC: let's all try it together.
Now about the live concert coming up, please tell us.
CM: it'll be on 4/26, at Sapporo...
YC: Sapporo Ice...
MC: ah, Sekisuibaimu Aisu Arena.
YC/CM: yes... [so cute!!!]
MC: it's Saturday, 4/26. so you must be preparing for the concerts, little by little.
YC: yes, we've been rehearsing a bit.
MC: please look forward to 4/26. and we've received a cool present from the 2! It's this signed poster! We'll be giving this to a viewer as a present. Please send it your request to this address.
That went by in a blink of an eye! please give a last comment each.
