JongHyun: It is impossible to explain our charm. So please come to see our live concert.

Q. What new things do you want to try ?
JongHyun: Recently I started to play surfing with my friend.
I was happy to stand on the board at my first surfing day.
(—You have white skin.)
I can not get sunburned (laughs).
I don’t care and don’t use sunscreen though, never get sunburned.
If I have time in oversea countries, I want to try surfing at that sea.

JongHyun: Watch that I wear now.
Very expensive (laughs).
It is European brand watch, I have wanted to buy when I grew old.
Our members all likes watch, they bought some watches but I refrained from buying some watches to buy only expensive one.

Q. Which artist do you want to collaborate ?
JongHyun: With hip hop artist.
Actually we played with Double K and Dok2.
Show program staffs asked us “please tell me if you have good idea”.
So we suggested “they rarely appear on TV so how about to play them?”
We were not friends but we like them they are cool.

And guy fans in rock festival, they set fire to our heart.

Not absolutely though, beautiful is better (laughs).
Secondly, the woman who I can respect.
Respectable cool woman, I like so much.

Q. What thing do you do before on the stage ?
JongHyun: Do it till almost fainting, show our cool play, I imagine such way.
And shouting with 4, “do to dedicate our lives!”.

Q. What compliment do you want from girls ?
JongHyun: Not a girl though, at a-nation when I washed my hair at restroom, other bandsman came into and “Are you JongHyun san ?! I’m yearning to you.” despite of during shampoo.
I was surprised but happy.

Q. What about “Angel” for you ?
JongHyun: If it assume that give me cheerful, it is members and fans.

These days we work separately in a week, and meet at airport and go to play concert.
But when we play at concert, stress was blown off, and charge energy for new week.
