[TRANS] Haru Hana Vol. 41 Issue ‘Interview with NCT 127′
NCT127 who were the last to appear on stage at the 68th ‘Sapporo Snow KPOP Festival’ held on the 12th of February. Because of their Japanese member, Yuta, we were able to hear their stories on their first time in Hokkaido.
Q: What did you do in Sopporo? Taeyong: We saw the snow and everyone played like kids. Doyoung: We haven’t seen snow in a while and everywhere we go there’s piled up snow, we played happily. We also wanted to show our fans this scenery, so we took photos and shared them on SNS.
Q: What did you eat? Mark: Ramen. Taeyong: Shabu-shabu and sushi. Yuta: Can I speak Japanese? It was my first time eating miso ramen in Sapporo, it really is delicious, everyone all ate like they were possessed by a hungry demon.
Q: During your concert, Taeyong performed Kotori Yoshino’s gag, who showed it to him? Yuta: I showed it to him, and he seemed to like it a lot, so he decided to do it once.
Q: Yuta also worked hard to be the MC. Yuta: Normally it’s hard for me to express my feelings in Korean, but I can freely do so in Japanese, so I want to talk more and interact more, ad libs just comes out.
Q: How did the other members feel after watching Yuta? Johnny:This was my first time coming to Japan with Yuta, and because he was so used to Korea, I thought he is almost a Korean. But after seeing him in Japan I thought ‘ah, (he’s) Japanese’. Mark: That’s right, that’s right Taeyong: He came to Japan and did various things well. (He) organised our food menu as well. Haechan: When we arrived in Japan and asked about things we didn’t know, Yuta hyung helped us. Jaehyun: During the show when we were doing the ment, I also asked questions, Yuta hyung overcame it all.
Q: I am going to bring up a unique fashion topic, what kind of style of plain clothes do you like? Winwin: I like clothes that are clean (bright) and smart. Doyoung: I like comfortable clothes. Casual clothes. Taeil: For me, training wear. I really like being comfortable. Yuta: I like (wearing) entirely black. Or all black. Jaehyun: I like all kinds of colours. I also like anything monotone, simple but with a point. Haechan: I like comfortable clothes~ Taeyong: I like baggy clothes. For example, a t-shirt that I have at home for 5 years. Mark: It differs depending on how I feel. I pick clothes according to how I feel. Johnny: I also wear clothes depending on how I feel that day, I pick clothes that can express my feelings.
Q: Which member cares about their fashion the most? Mark: I think it’s Winwin hyung. Yuta: Isn’t it fashion terrorist Winwin? Doyoung: It’s high fashion (as in high fashion sense). Taeil: You will be surprised when you see it.
Q: What goals would you like to achieve in 2017? Taeyong: We would like to have more activities in Japan, and in Korea of course. Yuta: There will be a lot of chances this year to come to Japan so please look forward to them.

Nami Island: the filming place for Winter Sonata -> A place known for its romantic sceneries and definitely a hot tourist place nestled in Korea (in Gangwon-Do). I am making it my plan to visit this place 4 times for its distinctive seasons since I will be in Korea for a year anyways… Don’t want to regret not seeing all sides of Nami Island when I’m back in Canada :P
After Produce 101 ended, you all probably know, but I went to home to Gangwon-do and did some healing there. My parents made me a lot of delicious food and told me I went through a lot. I wanted to get some strength and start again. So now I’m here, and prepared for the Produce 101 concert. And… we have to let you hear good music again, right? So that’s why… now… in order to let you hear good music, I’ve been writing lyrics. You’re all curious, right?
First seen in February 2015. First tv appearance on I Live Alone April 2015. Media reported it as Porsche 911 Carerra, probably confused it with the Carerra Dongwan mentioned in June 2013 interview. The model confirmed by netizens as Boxster.
9. Black Audi? MPV.
November 2016. I saw a picture on twitter, but later the owner deleted the picture of him with Dongwan and a black car. I might be wrong and Dongwan probably didn’t buy a new car, but Dongwan was in a new MPV when he did V-LIVE on his way back to Seoul from Gangwon-do in December 2016.
Motorbikes / Bicycles.
Dongwan bought his first two wheels when he was in high school with his own money after working in a factory and a chicken rib shop. MC Mong wrote on his blog about riding Dongwan’s scooter during their high school days. I’m not sure if before he bought his Harley there was another motorbike, but Junjin did told a story of Shinhwa early days about Dongwan’s motorbike fuming with smoke.
1. His grey mountain bike during his rookie days .
2. Harley Davidson FXDI Dyna Super Glide - May 2002.
Netizen reported he saw Dongwan bought the Harley across the street and was trying his very best to take pictures from afar like a papparazzi, lmao.
3. Unknown superbike.
4. Unknown Harley Davidson in his The First photobook.
Sorry for recycling/posting this picture again.
5. Unknown mountain bike posted on ShinCom FB November 2013.
5. Specialized Enduro S Works.
First tv appearance in I Live Alone April 2015.
6. BMW F800R 2015.
First tv appearance in I Live Alone February 2016.
7. Specialized road bike - 2016.
Cr to pic owner.
Lastly, I’m not sure if this Honda CBR900RR Fireblade in Love Mansae was his or not, it could the motorbike was prepared by the production team, but I’ll just share it here.
Rap Monster Q: The evolution of your autograph? A: My autograph was completely different before. The office’s team leader said, “It’s too simple, you can’t use that” so that’s why it looks like it does now (laughs). It took a long, long time before I decided to use this. I think I probably signed like a couple thousand times.
Q: What’s great about the members? A: J-Hope definitely will not overstep the boundary. He always has a sense of propriety so when he says something, you’ll think “ah~ that’s right.”
Jin hyung is also the type that values rules and regluation. Also, he would often hand me things that I had forgotten. He would remind me and say, “You forgot this~.” (laughs)
Suga hyung is a music partner. He’ll notice that things that I overlook.
V is always very cute and lively (laughs). I don’t have anything like that so there’s a lot for me to learn.
Jungkook has always worked super hard. Seeing him makes me think that I need to fight on!
Jimin always listens to me. He really is a very gentle dongsaeng.

ㄹㅇ나 살 이유없ㄴ음 나 원주 사는데 알다시피 강원도 지역은 좁디좁음 차타고 십분거리의 터미널 옆 신전떡볶이에서 10시 10분경 제 아는 언니가 달님을 발견했다는 ….. 역시 덕계못임 참 …..😭
“I moved from Gangwon-do to Seoul when I was 20-years-old. I always listened to music and I told (staff noona) that I was listening to KISS’ music. The noona then told me that I shouldn’t listen to that kind of music but listen to Linkin Park and study. So I said, ‘Noona, rock music isn’t something that you can study.’ She yelled at me for talking back and told me to write up an apology. I responded, 'I’m not sorry for anything but I’ll do it anyway since you’re telling me to’. I got suspended often. They told me not to come for awhile and I just said ok. I used to live in dorms with Donghae and Yunho. They would ask if I really don’t have to go and I said, 'They will call me when they need me’. When I think about it now, it makes me cringe.” - Heechul, Super Junior
Just as the fanmeeting ended, I’ve finished preparation for enlistment!!!!!!!! I’ll go and I’ll be back safely!!! Gangwon-do, Inje-gun, 12th Army Division!!!!
#Military #12thArmyDivision #Gangwon-do A+ #Hoot
Debut as a solo singer in this ‘idol group singer
trend’ is hard. Lucky I got full support from my agency. All I have is only
good and unique voice to be called a singer. I produce my own song but I’m
still far from professional producer. I don’t get any surgery on my face or
body. It’s not because I’m confidence enough with my appearance but I don’t
have any courage to do surgery. So I still life with my petite and curve less
body. Maybe that’s one of the reason I never obsess with guy that has nice
body. I prefer the skinny one just like me. I find a guy with muscles and abs a
little bit gross. They usually love to show off their body or take pictures of
their clothes less upper body.
Tonight is my first all-kill celebration party.
Partying is really not my style. I don’t drink and can’t dance. I hate how they
bump into each other with clothes less body. The smoke from cigarette always
fill the club’s air, I can barely breath there. But tonight my agency threw me
a party and I can’t say no. They already work hard to support me and I should
thank them. Of course we didn’t rent the entry club. We just reserve some table
for our staff so many other people there.
