[Trans] 100711 Junsu Ray Magazine August Issue

As a member of TVXQ, Junsu ventures into the music world as a solo artist!

Junsu’s new song ‘Intoxication’ which was recorded in his solo single ‘Xiah’, includes the dance genre of matureness that fully displayed of his talent in singing.

“‘Intoxication’ brings a completely new side of me. It conveys the sexiness of men. The dance track has a club-feel, it exposes the truth side of myself without any reservation. Therefore, while performing, the vast dynamic range and large intervals would amplify and is also sang sexily!”

The music style of ‘Intoxication’ is something which I have always wanted to try out. On
the other hand, ‘悲しみのゆくえ (Kanashimi no Yukue )’ is an opposite of ‘Intoxication’. It is a expressive composition which conceal one’s sorrow. It says about someone who wanted to confess to a person he loves yet wondering if the person would understand and accept your feelings.”

Able to walk on the path of music, Junsu is greatly affected by the impact of his mother。

“My mother really loves music. She was once approached by a management agency which hoped that she’ll become an artiste, and this is the reason why she’s so happy when I became one. It makes me scared sometimes when my performances or compositions are somehow similar to hers, she really did leave a huge impact on me. Now that I’ve become more professional than what I used to be, I no longer need her advice. Sometimes I would hear those words from her “After hearing such words, I feel lonely and complicated.”

Junsu, who feels like he has only just embarked on the journey to become an artist said, “I’ve never really considered what type of artist I’d like to be, but I hope that my songs will last for the rest of eternity. As long as there are people who liked and enjoyed my music, I will continue to sing regardless of the time and situation. It is the things that I love
which motivate me to sing.

Yunho who stands in front of the camera, looking sharper then ever.

“Usually at Ray photo shoots we wear clothes that are similar to usual Tohoshinki’s image but today it seems like its more of a work tune.
To Yunho fashion is “something that I can show my feelings naturally”.

“Usually I express [ I feel happy today! ] by using clothes *laughs*. Every year I sort of pick a theme for that year. Like short pants or hats. Right now it’s glasses. From thin frames to thick ones I have more than 50 collected. I have good eyes so there is no lens”.

What does fashionable Yunho want girls to wear?

“Something natural. I love checkered print so I want to have the same checkered print somewhere together with my girlfriend.
But if I like someone truly from my heart fashion doesnt really matter”.

Yunho thinks it’s an important step to really feel and understand that person before it becomes a relationship.

Even though it would take a while, he said “I will risk my life to protect her. When I get a girlfriend what I want to do no matter what is to sing only to her at our concert for my solo part”.

How romantic!

“Really? *laughs* Artists do show everything to everyone. In Tohoshinki’s songs too, not only me but it has the members pure parts in it. If it’s a recent song, you can probably feel the manliness *laughs*.So when listening to our best album I hope you listen to it like that”.

“In the album, there is different genre of Tohoshinki’s songs. I think you can naturally hear our growth from the beginning to recent.”

The guy who was always joking around became a guy who shows a serious face expression.

He can pull off the black suits so naturally and is so handsome!

” I like suits style originally and I usually wear it too. I have a lot of suits in my private life too, I have the image of a ‘men’ equaling to suits”

“Fashion isn’t something you follow but I think its important that you find a style that matches you. I like girls who has confidence and is wearing what is her style” said Junsu.

If its a drive date, I like places with water and a night scene so I want to go somewhere like the beach, lake, or a river. It’s case by case if I pick where to go, or if she picks. Sometimes maybe we can just walk to somewhere near….

It seems that he has his ideal date. It seems like we were able to see his personality a little more. Whether it’s music or love he is always looking straight forward.

I don’t want to follow what’s popular, I want to have confidence in myself. Relationships of course, but I have strong desires to get married too!

– Article–

I get attracted to girls with a pretty smile and eyes.
I love to drive, my wish is to go on a date with my car.

“The only time i dress so formal is only when i go to my friends wedding” says Changmin as he laughs.

When he debuted in Japan he was still an innocent 17 year old and now hes already 22.

He’s tall and slim who matches black formal outfit.
“I like outfits like this that makes me look slender/slim. What i look for in fashion is the style more than the color. I try to choose something that’s simple yet stylish.”

In his private life he said hes got his license and now his hobby is to go on a drive.

“I want to go on a drive date once. Usually I can’t show my feelings but inside a car I can relax so I think I can express myself better. There are so many places  I want to take my girlfriend to! I really want to go to a theme park (amusement park) and have fun! *laughs*

– Even though your the youngest out of the member theres an image of you where your calm and cool. Are you passionate when it comes to relationships?

“Actually I am! I’ve had a few love at first sights in the past too and it’s not like I have anything specifically that I want in a girls looks . The only thing they have in common are girls with pretty eyes and a pretty smile. I’m more like as we date we get to know each other and then match our personalities to each other. I think that’s my pattern.

Slowly with his own words its surprising how much Changmin’s Japanese got better in this 5 years.
“Every time we release an album I said the word “growth” all the time *laughs* but this best album is really something you can feel our growth. And around the debut songs you can listen to us trying hard to sing in Japanese!”.

[Trans] Ray Magazine April Issue – Welcome To Yuchun’s Room!!

I’ve had love at first sight twice. Once i like someone I’m a committed guy. My date outfits are usually casual. I like being natural.

Yoochun says once he likes someone he’s a committed guy.
“Once I dated this girl who i approached so many times and I dated her for years. I’ve forgotten how relationship like that feels now *laughs*”

While joking around and talking like a little boy once he stands infront of the camera his expression becomes like an adult.

His image when he debuted which was “cute” seems to have changed.
“When you listen to the best album I can feel that time has past. I want everyone to remember those times while listening to it”.

Yoochun can naturally pull off a classic vest and a hat. We thought he would usually wear clothes like this but
“I wear casual clothes all the time!” is what he said.
“In the fall/winter I wear mouton boots (sheepskin boots) and in spring/summer I wear flip flops. But sometimes I want to look cool so even though I don’t have a promise with anyone I wear suits and drink coffee alone. Also I have 2 dogs so I take them on a walk in the park in my suits. One of my dog, when it stands up its about 170cm tall so its a hassle *laughs*. These days I like shoes that matches suits so I’m going to buy the shoes I wore today in the photo shoot!”

-Do you wear formal shoes like this to a special date?
“sometimes it’s good but on a date I like something more casual. When I date a girl I want to travel a lot and make a lot of memories. So I want my girlfriend to wear something like a denim jeans with a black sweater with a color stole. Something simple like that yet feminine. I want the girl I date to not show so much skin *laughs*.
