MC: Then firstly, a question from me. I also announced the news a while ago about SHINee’s new album 「D×D×D」 to be released next year on January 1st. What is the album’s concept?
Key: 「D×D×D」’s concept
Onew: D D D D D~
Jonghyun: What? Is that our song? You were singing D D D~ just now. Ah…it’s an album with a lot of genres so our charms…uh…please look forward to them. Also, the song 「D×D×D」 is a dance song so we’ll have a performance for that.
Taemin: Also, since it’s a dance song I think it’s a song that will be fun for everyone.
MC: I see…
Taemin: *whispering to Key*
Key: I don’t know!
MC: Do you have anything to add?
Key: No, I’m fine…
MC: How is 「D×D×D」 different from your other works? Like from your previous album?
Key: As expected…hmm…
Onew: As expected…the song…
Key: Since it’s our fourth album, we have a lot of new songs. And compared to before (the album) shows a more mature side of us.
MC: We’re looking forward to that mature feel in the album then.
MC: Today, your song 「D×D×D」 was released via LINE Music and it is a dance song, as you said, right.
Key: I think it suits a powerful performance but recently SHINee has…what are you doing??
Jonghyun/Minho: *does 「D×D×D」 choreo while sitting down*
Key: You want to dance it, right? (LOL) Ah…we’ve been releasing bright songs and ballad songs recently but now we’ve come back to releasing dance songs so I think that it will energize anyone who listens to it.
MC: There are a lot of questions also about your music video. Lke this one: “In your dance, is there a part that was difficult for you? I’m looking forward to the cool dance performance!”
Jonghyun: 「D×D×D」’s dance is really fast.
Onew: That’s true.
Taemin: First of all (it is fast), yes. It’s too fast.
MC: It’s too fast? LOL
Jonghyun/Minho: *does sample dance*
Taemin: I think it’s not good for the body…
Key: No, no, no, that’s unrelated!
Taemin: I wonder… I’ll just do my best.
Key: More than the dance, in the MV Taemin had a scene where it’s raining, right?
Taemin: Ah, there’s water…
Onew: Rain, rain
Minho: Water, water…
Taemin: I mean I…while I was drenched (with the rain) we were filming but that part wasn’t even shown much.
Key: What are you saying?
MC: That’s too bad…
Taemin: Yes, I was sad.
MC: You were shooting with the cold water…
Taemin: I was really excited about it (while watching the MV) and I was thinking, “Ah, when will it show…” but it was shown towards the end and just a small part, too.
Key: But that was a cool scene.
Jonghyun: You were cool.
Taemin: Thank you very much.
MC: Here’s another question. “You always have snappy dances, but who remembers the steps the fastest?”
Taemin: *raises hand*
Jonghyun: Key is…ah…Taemin, why did you say yourself?
Taemin: I feel that recently, I instantly remember (the steps).
Onew: Not really.
Jonghyun: Eh, no, no.
Key: Everyone’s against it, LOL.
Jonghyun: Taemin’s really slow. Key is the fastest.
MC: I see. Then who is the slowest?
Jonghyun/Onew: *raises hand*
Jonghyun: It’s Onew and I.
MC: So it’s sort of your weakness?
Jonghyun: We’re both slow.
MC: But in the 「D×D×D」 music video I’m sure you were both snappy dancers. So I think it’ll be okay.
Jonghyun/Onew: Thank you very much.
Key: We’ll do our best.
MC: Also included in your album is 「View -JP ver」. What kind of song is it? Do you have a part in the lyrics that you like?
Key: View has a lot of repetitive phrase, so when it was translated in Japanese the director and us thought about how to present it and so it’s quite… huh?
Key: It’s quite nice.
MC: We also solicited questions from our users. The total number of mail we received was 70,000.
MC: A lot of people wrote to us. So we’ll try to ask the members the questions as time permits us.
Onew: *after a long silence* 70,000?
MC: “Do you like long hair or short hair on girls?”
Jonghyun: As long as it suits her.
Onew: That’s right.
Jonghyun: Either will do as long as it suits her.
Taemin: That is true.
MC: So whether long or short, it doesn’t matter, both are lovely?
MC: That’s such a perfect answer.
Key: When we have interviews, this question pops out a lot.
Taemin: We got used to it.
Key: What are you saying??
Jonghyun: I always become close, though.
Jonghyun: I mean I always change my tastes.
Onew: (It changes) Everyday.
Jonghyun: Not that much.
Key: I’m sorry, it’s a bit sudden but it’s Onew’s birthday today.
Onew: THANK YOU!
Key: So we’re letting him do whatever he wants and not scold him.
MC: So you can do what you want and it’s okay, huh!
MC: Next question, “How do you spend Christmas?”
Jonghyun: Work, of course, right?
Taemin: Nothing’s decided yet but…
Jonghyun: We have a schedule, right?
Key: Nothing’s decided yet but we probably a performance?
Taemin: If possible, I’d like it to be a performance where we can meet with everyone.
MC: I see! Everyone would be looking forward to it.
MC: What is something you absolutely have to do every day?
Jonghyun: Do you have one?
MC: For example, her answer is she has to pat/rub her cat every day.
Onew: For me, it’s showering.
Key: OF COURSE!
Jonghyun: Everyone does that.
Onew: Is that so? But sometimes it feels troublesome so I don’t…
Jonghyun: Don’t lie!
Taemin: You’ll get found out.
Key: Do I have one?
Jonghyun: Something we have to do every day?
Taemin: I have to eat meat every day.
Key: He’s a carnivore.
Jonghyun: I also eat meat every day.
Taemin: If I don’t eat meat I can’t do anything like work.
MC: You have no energy? I see!
MC: We have another question from a user called Watanabe Maki-san.
Key: It’s the name of our staff, too…
MC: Ah, I see
MC: Do you reply fast to e-mail or LINE messages?
Key: This child is slow *points at Taemin*
Jonghyun: I reply fast but this kid is really slow.
MC: Why is that?
Taemin: I have a new ah.. *covers mouth*
Taemin: Just water coming out (of my nose).
Taemin: Recently, I had a fight with my friend. Because of that. I don’t really contact everyone much, so because of that…
Key: But from the start, he checks but never replies!
Taemin: Because it’s bothersome…
MC: But if you get into arguments because of that I think you should reply faster!
Minho: Jonghyun, though…he’s fast.
Jonghyun: I reply fast. Because I’m nice.
Taemin: So you’re nice?
MC: That means Taemin doesn’t seem very nice, then…but he’s probably nice he just doesn’t reply!
MC: By the way, do you think you can live without your phone?
Key: No, not at all.
Onew: I think I…
Jonghyun: I think I can do it probably but…
Key: Really? I can’t at all.
Onew: I can do it. It’s not an inconvenience.
Minho: I think I can do it.
Key: No, no, no.
Onew: I can live without it but the people around me would be bothered if they can’t contact me.
MC: We’d like to introduce SHINee’s playlist in LINE MUSIC.
Staff: *pulls smartphones from table and they fall to the floor*
Jonghyun: Oh!! ARE YOU ALRIGHT?!
MC: This playlist will be presented here! The members can also see it.
Onew: Dee-Ex-Dee-Ex-Dee-Ex (DxDxDx)
MC: (LOL) Onew’s really freely commenting right now.
Jonghyun: Dee-Dee-Dee! (DxDxD)
MC: We’ve created this playlist so please check it out.
MC: Can the members please face the camera and say, “Let’s LINE Music!” (Ongaku wo LINE shiyou!) in a loud voice to invite people to reach your playlist. Is that okay?
Onew: Then, 1, 2…
SHINee: Let’s LINE Music! (Ongaku wo LINE shiyou!)
Onew: Shio ramen… (t/n: salt-based ramen; shio sounds like shiyou)
Key: No… (LOL)
Jonghyun: That’s different!
MC: The birthday boy is doing whatever he likes, please go easy on him.
Key: That’s (a) fast (pun)!
Minho/Taemin: Because it’s his birthday.
Onew: Thank you.
Minho: Shio ramen.
Jonghyun: It’s delicious.
MC: Do you like shio ramen?
Onew: I love ramen.
MC: Ah, we have more questions from our users.
Onew: *mutters* 70,000…
MC: “During the fanclub event there were a lot of games and it was fun and everyone was playing around. Normally, do you do other exercises? What kind of exercises do you do?” It’s for Minho.
Jonghyun: But everyone is doing a lot of working out, right? But Minho does hhis own freely.
Minho: Like in gym, or playing sports like soccer or basketball. Recently, I’ve been doing golf. Golf is the most difficult for me.
MC: Have you mastered it?
Minho: Not yet.
MC: Ah, because it’s hard, right?
Minho: *does golf swing*
MC: Ah, that’s great.
Jonghyun: Nice shot.
Minho: Thank you.
Onew: *hits Jonghyun with stuffed bear*
MC: Another question, “If you were to become a high school girl for a day, what would you do?”
Minho: Fairy? (t/n: just guessing since he said yousei = fairy, as opposed to koukousei = HS student)
MC: High school girl. What would you do? First of all, it’s different since it’s a girl and then you’re even a high school student…
Key: I want to enter an idol fanclub. I don’t know. I just want to enter a fanclub and look at the idols and go, “Yaah did you see Kibum?!” Or see Taemin, etc.
MC: Of course it’s SHINee’s fanclub, right? I see. Since right now, you’re the ones that causes people to go “kyaa!” you would like to experience doing it yourself. What about the others?
Jonghyun: For me, I’d go to a meeting…meeting? Blind date (omiai)?
MC: I think that would be more of a drinking party/group date (goukon) right?
Onew: What about souvenirs? (t/n: since omiyage or souvenir sounds like omiai ^^; )
MC: Do high school girls go to drinking parties?
Female staff: They don’t. (Shimasen)
Onew: They don’t (Shimasen)
Jonghyun: Eh? They don’t?
Onew: That’s all, thank you.
Jonghyun: I’m sorry (Sumimasen)!
Onew: I don’t, I’m sorry (Shimasen. Sumimasen. t/n: …because they rhyme again)
MC: Are there any more?
Onew: I’d try singing with a female voice.
MC: Ah I see, in the karaoke right?
Onew: Because (a female voice) is high. I’m able to do “kyaa!” and stuff.
MC: You want to do that in a high voice?
Onew: Right now I can only do “gyaaa” *in a low voice*
MC: Do we have time for a last question? “Which world do you want to live in? A. Pokemon or B. Doraemon?”
Taemin: I (don’t like) both…
Minho: Are there only two options?
Minho: I want Pokemon.
Key: I want Doraemon, too.
Taemin: I want to live in Dragonball world.
MC: Ah that’s great, you can do things like kamehameha…
Minho: I want One Piece.
Taemin: Do you want to be a pirate?
Onew: One Punch Man then?
MC: That would be nice, too.
Minho: *imitates situps*
MC: Everyone has their own world that they want to live in, right?
Minho: *laughs and mutters* One-Punch Man
Taemin: *imitates gestures from OPM*
MC: Today, there are people who have their birthdays!
Jonghyun: Ohh, who is it?
Onew: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ONEW!
MC: And also, Minho! You recently had your birthday, too.
(t/n: Jonghyun laughed at Onew because he was excitedly saying his name but the MC mentioned Minho)
MC: And so, 1..2…
SHINee: Happy birth– *party poppers start sounding and SHINee acted like they’re being shot*
MC: No one’s shooting you. No one’s shooting you. Anyway, we have cake for them!
Key: Waah! They look delicious!
Onew: *starts dancing*
Minho: Onew, Onew… *motions for him to use their noses for blowing the candles*
Jonghyun: No, no, you can’t.
MC: Congratulation! We also have gifts for you from LINE.
Taemin: Waah! I’m envious!
Jonghyun: LINE Bear?
Taemin: Is it okay if we carry this home?
Jonghyun: Thank you very much.
MC: Then a message from each of you? Onew, since you’re the birthday boy.
Jonghyun: A message.
Onew: Ah, thank you very much…
Key: That’s it?!
Onew: *starts to poke his own nose with LINE rabbit’s ear*
Jonghyun: No, no, don’t do that.
Onew: Ah, I’m nervous right now.
Jonghyun: Why are you suddenly nervous??
Onew: More than any day, I feel the happiest today. Thank you very much.
MC: Then Minho?
Minho: I’m really happy, thank you very much! *imitates LINE Bunny’s pose*
WHILE the MC was explaining SHINee’s new album:
MC: The members have started eating the cake!
MC: Then, final messages from the members?
Onew: Even though it’s such a short time, we managed to mee…mee…ah meet with everyone, so I’m really happy. Thank you very much.
Jonghyun: Yes, we’re doing our best in preparing for our concert so please look forward to it, thank you very much.
Taemin: Actually, we don’t usually do live streams, so it’s a bit difficult but today is a bit intersuf (t/n: he said omosuroi instead of omoshiroi)
Jonghyun: It’s really difficult isn’t it??
Taemin: Yes, I still have a long way to go. But it’s nice to meet with everyone up close. And since it’s also Onew’s birthday, today is a meaningful day. It’s the best.
Minho: Thank you to everyone who came to see us today. Thank you very much. Please cheer for us.
Key: Yes, um…ah… well, we are about to release our new album DxDxD, so please look forward to it. We’re anticipating our tour so please wait for us.
MC: Then, will the members introduce their song as we end our program?
SHINee: *says different things* LOL
Jonghyun: We’re gonna say “please watch it” right?
Key: Let’s just say, this is SHINee’s DxDxD.
Key: Well, then, this is SHINee’s…
Onew: Let’s LINE! (LINE shiyou!)
(t/n: Idek why Onew said that)
