Q: Pretty boy’s behind the story?

Taemin: I was supposed to do all the singing part and rap in ‘Pretty Boy’, but I thought Kai would match more to the rap part than me. And I wanted to do it with Kai. So I highly recommended Kai and pestered Kai to do it with me. But Kai positively joined and I’m really thankful.

Kai: Since I thought of our stage from long time ago, I readily agreed when Taemin suggested to sing with him. I thought that I could show both rap and smart performance since ‘Pretty Boy’ has beat in it. Taemin is a friend and a senior at the same time, so I tried to do my best not to harass him , and I could join with good mind as a friend too. (laughs)


"Laverne stands up for what she believes in and does so with grace and humility,” says her costar and nominator Natasha Lyonne. “She is one of a kind: a game changer and a maverick who not only expands closed minds but educates them. She is the living embodiment of what she believes in, and the inevitable fallout of that is she inspires others to tell their own truths.”

[STARCAST] Solo Taemin! Dance practice of ‘Pretty Boy’ with best friend KAI & Behind story of the stage

EXO KAI has started to support his best friend Taemin who is showing dangerous charms by changing into a mysterious thief after releasing his first solo album ‘ACE’! EXO KAI has performed together in Taemin’s solo album track ‘Pretty Boy’ (featuring. EXO KAI)’s stage and satisfied fans that always wanted to see Taemin & KAI’s Pretty X Sexy stage.
Issues! Dance practice of ‘Pretty Boy’ with best friend KAI, behind story of the stage is released for fans following Taemin & KAI’s stage, and self-written messages that conveyed each mind~!! Meet them today : )


At late night, Taemin and KAI met at a practicing room in SM Entertainment company building. They asked each other’s condition and health right after they met. Then they started to chat! The subject was definitely about Taemin’s first solo album activity! Since KAI is Taemin’s best friend who always looked forward to the release of the first solo album and cheered him up, he encouraged Taemin by checking his condition and the response toward the new album. After the long talk, the time of practicing the dance came~!!


Taemin “Ready~!!”


KAI “Ready, Go”

If you think of me as pretty and well, and even kind and tender, you have mistaken me with your imagination
(‘Pretty Boy’ lyrics)


Best friend duo, Taemin and KAI focused on practicing the dance without knowing time passing. After their first dance practice was over we interviewed them in order to ask each of their real minds. Both of them talked with good friendship and kind mind….

Q) What kind of friend is KAI to Taemin, and Taemin to KAI?!

My friend Taemin, (Taemin that KAI talks about)


I Believe~
Taemin always works hard, does his best, good and a smart friend more than anything. So I’m proud that he’s my friend and I’ve lots to learn from him. As you may have seen through SBS special ‘10,000 Hours’, Taemin is a real hard worker. He gives information about good videos or things that are good to know for each other, and he’s a friend that gives great help.

My friend KAI, (KAI that Taemin talks about)


I Believe~
KAI? He’s a dark-colored friend. LOL. KAI… he’s a taciturn friend. He’s a loyal friend who knows how to cares other without saying much. We built our friendship by sleeping together in the practicing room since long time ago. He’s just.. an insect (Taemin and KAI both laughs) KAI is a “black beetle ^^”. I was just joking. I’m so happy that we are so similar and have a lot in common whether it’s due to our long time being together, and I like that point.

Q) ‘Pretty Boy’s behind story?!


Taemin: I was supposed to do all the singing part and rap in ‘Pretty Boy’, but I thought KAI would match more to the rap part than me. And I wanted to do it with KAI. So I highly recommended KAI and pestered KAI to do it with me. But KAI positively joined and I’m really thankful.

KAI: Since I thought of our stage from long time ago, I readily agreed when Taemin suggested singing with him. I thought that I could show both rap and smart performance since ‘Pretty Boy’ has beat in it. Taemin is a friend and a senior at the same time, so I tried to do my best not to harass him, and I could join with good mind as a friend too. (Laughter)

Q) What are your thoughts about best friend Tamin and KAI’s first collaboration?


Taemin: Having a stage with a friend was a longing dream, and I think it has a great meaning. If there is another chance, I want to try what belongs to only us and new things.

KAI: First of all, I’m so happy that I could participate in featuring Taemin’s solo album track, and a horror that I could stage with my senior Taemin. I really thank for this great opportunity. I’m hoping big success since my energy is not only melted in ‘Pretty Boy’ but also the whole ‘ACE’ album of Taemin. Go Go!!



After the dance practice of ‘Pretty Boy’ was over, Taemin and Kai conveyed each mind by writing on Taemin’s album. The messages of best friend duo will be released in the last part, so please read this until the last!


Tada~!! After the practice was done until late night! We met Taemin at the waiting room of music program that Taemin & KAI’s ‘Pretty Boy’ stage is performed~!! He is charismatic mysterious thief Taemin today too!


He was lonely Taemin since he acted solo after performing as SHINee, but he’s not lonely today since his best friend KAI is with him! Taemin and KAI spent the waiting time by playing with the camera.
Finally, Taemin and KAI went up on the stage of ‘Pretty Boy’ rehearsal!


Taemin appeared first with charisma!


With KAI! # Different choreography although it looks same!

After the sweating rehearsal stage was over, they started the real stage! Since they prepared thoroughly, they could finish the ‘Pretty Boy’ stage without recording.


P-R-E-double T-Y-Pretty Boy~!!

Taemin and KAI came down the stage after neat stage greeting. They were all wet in sweat but they started to do monitoring by caring each other. We think that they are friends that could rely on each other and more sincere friendship since they had times of trainee, practicing dances, being up on stage as professionals, and monitoring together.


One more photo taken after coming down the stage! Please love #Taemin’s solo album ‘ACE’.
KAI sent a cheering message to Taemin who changed into a mysterious thief again after finishing ‘Pretty Boy’ stage. After asking whether it was hard and replying it was exciting each other, KAI headed for the next schedule and Taemin headed for the ‘Danger’ stage. Taemin decorated the ‘Danger’ stage splendidly as ‘Pretty Boy’ stage since KAI cheered up Taemin a lot for Taemin’s solo transformation. We hope that Taemin’s cordiality of showing gratitude to KAI and fans that cheer up Taemin’s solo transformation would be conveyed well!

Bonus) Taemin&KAI’s message of encouraging each other

Boom~!! Tada~!

tryin not to whine and i never thought id say this but i really don’t like the sound of dan and phil’s new radioshow.. ;-;
i listen/watch it because THEY do it, not other youtubers - it felt like their special thing..
its not even that i hate change, its just one show a month from them is seriously nothing and it pisses me off tbh
(phil said it was a big promotion for them though, so i’m really proud they gained that and loads more listeners, but for the people in the phandom i just reckon its not gonna be amazing.. :/)


I have to say, the most recent episode, Perishable, just seems like such a pivotal breakthrough episode for Stiles and Lydia. This whole time people have been questioning, wondering if maybe Stiles doesn’t care for Lydia as much as he used to, but this episode just proved that their bond has only grown stronger, mutually.

I just keep looking at how Stiles was literally shaking with anger while Brunski touched and tortured Lydia and it makes me think of what a goddamn power couple they would be.

I just imagine that every day would be new banter - challenging each other, shutting each other up with kisses, fooling around, Stiles surprising Lydia with tickles when she goes off on a tangent, Lydia entwining her fingers with Stiles’, grounding him when one of the guys he pissed off comes back to taunt him, both of them solving Beacon Hills’ most complex problems together and relaxing in each other’s arms afterwards.

But when anyone tries to hurt Lydia, Stiles is there in an instant and giving everything he has, not allowing anyone to do her wrong. And when Stiles is in danger, Lydia throws caution to the winds and rips worlds apart trying to keep him safe.

I just think how, if they were together, they could still be themselves - the best of themselves - but with such a deep love and care for each other that they’ll never feel unprotected again. They make each other better, stronger, happier.

Honestly, the whole of Beacon Hills would know not to mess with Stiles & Lydia. So I really appreciate Perishable for giving us another glimpse of just how much they care for each other, letting us know that Stydia is far from over and letting me fantasize about their married life (◕ω◕✿)

Today Jenna was interviewed on Radio 1 by Matt Edmondson. You can find the whole interview here, but here is the section where she mentioned Richard and rated his kissing (it’s around the 49 minute mark if you want to listen). 

Interviewer: Who is the better kisser? Matt Smith or your own boyfriend?
Jenna: (laughs)
Interviewer: He’s in Game of Thrones isn’t he?
Jenna: He is. Yeah.
Interviewer: Robb Stark.
Jenna: Well…
Interviewer: Don’t say it! Everyone knows, everybody who watches knows. Don’t say a word!
Jenna: I’m not saying a word. I’d not dare ruin Game of Thrones in that way.
Interviewer: Let’s just call him Game of Thrones actor.
Jenna: Okay. So you want me to pick out of one of my best friends and my boyfriend?
Interviewer: Who’s a better kisser? You’ve already given Matt a ten.
Jenna: I’ve already given Matt a ten, but I think I have to pick my own boyfriend. Otherwise, I mean, it’s going to make for a difficult night otherwise.
Interviewer: He’s an eleven, right?
Jenna: He’s an eleven.
Interviewer: Or at least a ten point five.
Jenna: Exactly.
