[Fan Account] 110528 SHINee @ Dream Concert

We ran into Yunho again in the lobby , who was walking back and forth with his stage outfit on, and then almost straight into a young, short and perfect guy. TAEMIN. Taemin. WE DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO WRITE! Suddenly he’s standing there, extremely close, talking and playing with a couple of dancers. He had his stage outfit on, smiling happily and beautifully. When he sees that the lobby has started to fill up with foreign cover dancers he disappears into his changing room quickly without any exchanges in greetings, but still, we smiled happily.

It is difficult to know where we should begin this post. There’s so much we’d like to tell about that everything is turning into a mess inside our heads. So we danced covers at Dream Concert and spent Friday night and the whole day on Saturday at the World Cup Stadium in Seoul. We saw a lot of stars face to face. The most important moments, not counting standing on stage in front of full stadium of cheering people, are:

We rehearsed on stage for the first time Friday evening. When we were finished rehearsing we went off stage and met U-Kiss standing on the grass in front of the stage. Dongho bowed politely and curiously. Instinctively we bowed in response. Eli said “Hi guys!” happily and we mumbled in response. It feels strange yet not as strange as you would imagine it.
When we’ve passed them we see another group of young men in the distance on the lawn: BEAST!!! We stand firmly in our place and stare at them. Some of them stare back at us, now everything feels extremely weird, Doojoon is mostly looking. Johanna has never really found him interesting but it’s a bit like when we saw Yonghwa, unexpectedly star struck. Doojoon is simply really good looking irl, less manly but at the same time not a young boy. Eh well, all the members of BEAST were very good looking, well-cut and well-dressed with glowing skin. We suspect that their company has given them a successful beauty treatment recently, they haven’t been this good looking in fancams and bts, right? Later they walk past us in the hall way extremely close without make up. Others in our group have more courage to react more as fan girls than us, and the members of BEAST hurry nervously past us. The only one taking it easy is Junhyung. He walks past us slowly while texting without seeming stressed by the fangirls ready to jump him. He looks perfect. Perfect but very young.
Afterwards we head for the dressing room to try on our clothes. 5Dolls is standing in there. They look at us but not, hm, as polite and nice as others. The following day they stand by the stage when we are about to perform. Maybe they were tired the day before sine they now cheerfully said hwaiting with us. On the way out from the dressing room we meet all the members of Kara, just like that passing us, and again we stare.

We arrive early in on Saturday morning at the stadium. During the day we rehearse and see all the rehearsals. Just like we wrote yesterday (an earlier post on their blog), some we saw from afar, some up close (depending on how and where we had to rehearse). The for us most overturning close performance was by 2PM. They had caps on to cover their faces from the sun, and possibly fancams since they had no makeup on and were pale. We are by this point sitting with like 30 other people and watching them perform. They are very professional and holding back despite this being a dress rehearsal. Taecyeon wore his cap backwards. Him, Junho and Chansung are mostly looking at us and performing as if we were a real audience. Nichkun is mostly hiding behind his cap and holding back but nod and smile to us before stepping off the stage. We think Nichkun is over worked and sick, he being as pale as he was almost made us worried. Over all the whole day already felt surreal that 2PM’s presence, or the fact that F.T. Island’s Hongki sat behind Elin and waited for his turn to rehearse, didn’t make us as dizzy as you would expect us to be.

But when Changmin and Yunho appeared by the stage our heads got really messy. One of our leaders said we could sit and watch while they perform, but he changed his mind. Unfortunately we missed their rehearsal since we had to rehearse on stage after them, and we were told to backstage when they were about to sing. We stood in a row backstage when F.T. Island stressfully hurry past us (happy, curious and greeting us) and we can hear Changmin and Yunho sing in the background. When they’re done rehearsing THEY EXIT THE STAGE RIGHT WHERE WE ARE STANDING. They walk 10 cm from us. Changmin is looking professionally at us one by one, nodding and saying annyeonghaseyo! Then Yunho comes down the steps. He’s a bit more stressed but smiles politely.

One funny thing was us constantly bumping into U-Kiss! In the end it was almost as if we knew them. Kevin started to get happy to see us and was totally “HI!” every time we met them. We stood surrounded by a really happy U-Kiss who were shouting hwaiting and encouraging us when we were about to perform. Elin did a small private hwaiting with Kiseop and Johanna had a hand-sign language conversation with Eli. They kinda stopped being k-pop stars and became a happy group of guys hanging by, and on, the stage.

After our performance and giving the hosts (Kara’s Goo Hara, Suju’s Kim Heechul and Song Joongki) a round of applause, we got to watch the concert after some fussing. On the way out Elin managed to hysterically, and a bit embarrassingly, explain to a guard that we were indeed allowed to enter the area. Next to us during the English/Korean conversation stood a group of really thin girls dressed in red outfits that we were too stressed to look at closely, but right before we are allowed in we realized it’s T-ara.

We ran into Yunho again in the lobby , who was walking back and forth with his stage outfit on, and then almost straight into a young, short and perfect guy. TAEMIN. Taemin. WE DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO WRITE! Suddenly he’s standing there, extremely close, talking and playing with a couple of dancers. He had his stage outfit on, smiling happily and beautifully. When he sees that the lobby has started to fill up with foreign cover dancers he disappears into his changing room quickly without any exchanges in greetings, but still, we smiled happily.

OK. That was backstage. Kinda. In conclusion: BEAST, HoMin and Taemin = the most stars strucked effect on us. And we are sure we’ve missed something important (like Eru staring at Johanna because he probably recognized her from the Music Core audience). We’ll return shortly with the concert

[Interview] SHINee Interview on Asian Place July 2011 – Part 2

- Your debut song Replay is the Japanese version of your song released in Korea in 2008. How did you feel singing it again in Japanese?

Onew: I think we find its charm again and again every time we listen to it. The charm doesn’t change even when we sing it in Japanese.

Jonghyun: That’s why the song is titled Replay (laugh).

Onew: Right! Once you listen to it, you can’t get out of it.

- The song conveys this feeling of being sorry because she doesn’t know your heart, feeling tender toward her, and feeling true affection. What did you pay attention to when your recorded it?

Jonghyun: First, I paid attention to Japanese pronunciations. I was very worried if I couldn’t deliver the lyrics well, so I checked with our Japanese teacher and Japanese staff while recording. It was our first time recording in Japanese, so frankly I didn’t know how Japanese emotion is different from Korean, but I tried to express the feelings.

Onew: I tried to express the feeling of fluttering heart.

Key: Because we had to express feelings in a different language, I tried to make it sound as natural as possible. I recorded it checking on my pronunciations with Japanese staff.

Minho: It has a different feel from the Korean version we have sung for 3 years, so it wasn’t easy, but I tried to express the feelings.

Taemin: In the Japanese lyrics, we are more matured, so I sang in a lower and stronger voice to express it.

- I see it is so touching because of such efforts. What part is your favorite?

Onew: I like the part “Replay Replay” as in the title.

Minho: I also like the part and all of it.

Jonghyun: The last bridge part.

Key: The ending part with each member’s adlibs. The rap and Taemin’s dance part.

Taemin: Thanks (laugh). I like the intro part.

- The Replay M/V is on the DVD. Did you have any impressive episodes while filming it?

Jonghyun: A special technique was used for this m/v.

Taemin: Yes, some parts were shot with a matrix camera.

Minho: The matrix was used for my and Taemin’s parts. It was very interesting. It was our first time filming a music video in Japanese, so we had a hard time in close-up scenes showing our lips. The member who made many mistakes is…

Jonghyun: Isn’t it Taemin?

Taemin: Uh, me? But I tried hard (laugh). We filmed in Paju, Korea, the same place we filmed the m/v for our Korean debut single Noona Is So Pretty, so it was more meaningful.

Onew: Right. We were deeply moved because we filmed the m/v for our Japanese debut single in the same place where we filmed our first m/v. I felt we are making a new start.

-What memories do you have of the year 2008 when you released this song in Korea?

Key: I still remember I practiced this song with members until early morning hours.

Jonghyun: we practiced all day. I still remember how hard we practiced.

- Tell me what impression you had when you listened to the couple song Hello, and what you like most.

Jonghyun: It was a calm and warm song. And the first thought that came to my mind when I listened to this song first time was “Ah, this song is really difficult” because we’d have to sing it (laugh).

Minho: I thought the beat was very new and interesting.

Taemin: It has a light feel and matches the lyrics very well.

- Say your goodbye messages to Japanese fans.

Onew: Please, cheer for us as we are debuting in Japan. There are many people who suffered from the earthquake. We will be happy to be of help with our songs and performances. We’ll do our best.

Key: We are all looking forward to our debut in Japan. We are studying Japanese for our debut. We’d like to show our SHINee-like music and performance to Japanese fans as soon as possible. Please, cheer for us.

Taemin: We’re now at the change of seasons, so take care not to catch a cold! See you in Japan!

[Interview] SHINee Interview on Asian Place July 2011 – Part (1)

- To begin with, congratulations on your debut in Japan! First, tell us about each member’s role or character.

Key: I’m SHINee’s energizer?

Minho: I think my nickname “flaming charisma” fits me very well for my character who dislikes giving up.

Taemin: I’m team’s maknae who is always adored by everyone? (laugh) I’ll show my aegyo a lot in Japan too.

Jonghyun: I’m in charge of being joyful, a character helpng smooth, adjusting things to go well

Onew: And I’m in charge of SHINee’s leader

- That’s very concise. How did you feel when you heard about your debut in Japan, and what did you do to prepare for it?

Minho: All our members were very happy. Frankly speaking, we got nervous but felt we’d love to show our music and performances to Japanese fans. While recording the debut song in Japanese we studied Japanese watching Japanese movies or dramas. I think it is part of the process of learning more about Japan.

Jonghyun: I’m glad we can study Japanese culture and contribute to cultural exchange between both countries

- We saw Key’s tears when you announced your Japan debut during your live in the Yoyogi stadium last year. Did you have lots of thoughts?

Key: First off, it was our fist time to perform on such a big stage. I couldn’t see the audience well when we started our live, but when I was able to see fans at the ending I was touched very much. And at the happy news about our debut in Japan, I was moved into tears.

Minho: It was meaningful because it was our first solo live.

Jonghyun: The ending song was “One.” When I glanced at Minho standing next to me, he was singing very sincerely. I got teary with lots of memories with members coming to my mind.

- Do you have such moments of feeling with members during your live?

Onew: Yes, we do so when we have eye contacts with each other on stage. We try to adjust through talk while practicing, but at the end, we can feel what other members are thinking through our eyes.

- While you spend time together, do you get influenced by each other, for instance, training or singing skills, or food taste?

Key: Yes! As for food, thanks to Taemin, I got to like meat, which I didn’t like that much before.

Taemin: (Looking at Key) my way of thinking has changed a little. I thought I would change naturally inside when I turn 20, but now I think someone doesn’t change like that simply because he gets older (laugh).

Jonghyun: Taemin now likes exercising at a gym thanks to Minho and me? (laugh)

Taemin: Right, we get to learn from each other. I learn about singing from Onew hyung and Jonghyun hyung, Minho hyung gives me advice. Key hyung gives me tips related to fashion.

- You mention fashion. What is your fashion point as fashion leaders?

Key: I think our concept is ‘contemporary boys’ that is what SHINee are, natural, cool, and friendly.

- What music and dance styles do you like?

Key: I listen to almost all the new songs I like. I like urban (modern dance music with rap) and pops.

Minho: I like R&B or ballad, and like tough dance performance.

Taemin: I think music and dance are the same in the end in delivering music. I like songs with strong beat I can show dance performance to.

Jonghyun: I listen to punky music like Maroon5 or T.O.P. Recently I’m learning guitar.

Onew: I like and listen to old pop a lot.

- You like different styles. What ritual do you have before recording?

Taemin: I do vocal exercises, pull my voice together, and drink lots of water

Minho: Before recording, I practice listening to the song several times. It makes me feel less nervous and feel like I can sing better.

Onew: It’s important to practice listening to the song again and again.

Jonghyun: I try to understand the lyrics completely, and then to sing to express the feelings

- Then, what do you do before your performance on stage?

Minho: We stand in a circle and shout “Fighting~”

Taemin: Shouting “Fighting!” helps clear our throat (laugh). So we can’t skip “Fighting!”

[Video] 110528 MC Onew & Minho @ Music Core.

[Video] Suspicious Ranking: Male celebrity who look prettier than girl.

[Info] Dream Concert Fanclub Seating Chart.

SM supporters said fans could get in without tickets. Because many shawols don’t have tickets as SHINee’s participation was decided after the ticket applications were done. I think the seats for SM fanclubs could expand on both sides.

Dream Concert will be aired on KBS2 at 11 p.m., Friday, 10 June.
