SHINee Taemin didn’t welcome EXO Kai at first? [Happy Together / 2017.09.07]On December 24, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
We’ll get started with “Star Golden Bell.” (A summer break special with variety show all-stars) (Big fun with the hottest celebrities) (Stay tuned until the end!) We should talk to Yerin. GFRIEND is known for being innocent and pure as well as powerful. Yerin, tell us about your role in the group. I’m the red ginseng of our team. What does that mean? It’s like an upgraded version of a human vitamin. Every team has one. But I have another role these days. What is it? I’m the doll. What kind of doll? It’s kind of embarrassing to say but my fans are amazed at how big my eyes are and how my features fit on my small face. I’m jealous. Are they amazed your features fit on your small face? You should let your fans say that. They say I came straight out of an anime. It’s funny to hear her say this stuff about herself. The dances for your new album made you vomit? Our dances are very tiring unlike normal girl group dances. How powerful could the moves be? – That’s what we thought too. / – But? They were different. If it’s enough to make you vomit. Your previous dances were powerful too though. I’m curious. Yerin, can you show us a bit? It would be a big issue if she really vomits. Don’t be ridiculous. (The girlish and innocent group GFRIEND) (Jump) Oh, so they jump. (“Love Whisper” by GFRIEND) (Her legs move constantly) They have to turn a lot. (Her moves are so precise…) (Yet her face looks cheerful) (Hop, hop, hop, jump) They don’t get a single moment of rest. None of the moves are slow. (This looks tiring) (She moves her top half) (As well as her bottom half) They don’t get a single moment for a breather. (Gasping) I don’t think it’s enough to make you vomit. It looks comfortable to do. (This isn’t the right reaction) Yerin, we don’t know much about dancing, but maybe you’re not as in shape as before. That could be a factor too. Try to boost your stamina. Take some red ginseng. Do some muscle exercises. – Just like that… Yerin… / – She’s so cute. Our solution is for you to work out your muscles. Speak to an expert. Taemin, is this a hard dance? There were many detailed technical aspects. The neck-o-flex where your body moves like this. She also did a lot of footwork. So it’s a tough dance. We do choreography for men… So honestly, it didn’t look that tiring to me. (Disbelief) (Kai is so refreshing) It’s so tiring for us. But a lot of people that see it think the dance moves are weak. But they can’t compare to After School’s dances. “Bang!” It was impossible to gain weight with our dances. Really? – For “Bang!” / – The drums! We couldn’t gain weight doing that dance. But the dances for Orange Caramel were tough. After practicing a bit, my lips would turn purple. Lizzy is here and the younger girl group members Yerin, Dayoung and Mina prepared something. They’ll perform “Catallena.” (A blast from the past) (The original singers were Orange Caramel) (“Catallena” original song by Orange Caramel) It’s “Catallena.” (GFRIEND, Cosmic Girls and Gugudan) (Mina of Gugudan is adorable) (Dayoung of Cosmic Girls is so charming) (Yerin of GFRIEND is so pure and powerful) (This performance is for Lizzy!) ♪ Dancing small Catallena ♪ (Pose) They’re good. (So refreshing) (Choking up) (Bravo) Awesome! (So cute) You all were great. I almost started crying. It triggered the past. (Lizzy took a trip down memory lane) (A performance that nearly moved her to tears) Mina, you’re busy working in your group but now you’ll do a drama. You’ll play Han Yeseul as a kid. Yes, the drama is coming out in late September. Did you see her in person? Yes, I did recently during a shoot. She’s gorgeous. I was so nervous the day before. Why? I got so nervous about meeting her in person. And I actually did a scene together with her. My mind just went blank. I’d look away when she looked me in the eyes. I was so nervous. So you didn’t even get to talk to her? I didn’t. We’re celebrities too. She seems to speak just fine in front of us. (It’s not like that) Dahye, I heard you decided to be in your drama with Kim Heeseon after reading her fortune. Why would you read someone else’s fortune? Why go to a fortune teller for doing a drama? Since I was going to shoot a drama with a top star like Heeseon, I did an internet search on her. To find things to talk about with her. After doing a search Heeseon’s fortune popped up. It said she had good luck in her early years but even better luck for her middle-age. It said she’s going to become even more famous next year. So I figured the drama would be a hit. I just had to stay on top of my game. I was sure it would be a hit and it really was. And Heeseon is so hot right now. (Source: JTBC) Did you look at Huijin’s fortune? No. It’s the unlucky 9s for me. I’m sorry but can you interview our team too? I was getting right to that. Lizzy. (The original charming and funny idol Lizzy) I heard Lizzy called Jun Hyunmoo when she was drunk. The first thing you talk about is getting drunk? I had nothing to do so I was drinking at home alone while watching TV. Hyumoo kept showing up on TV. My original dream was to become an announcer. Then eventually become a variety show host. But that’s the exact route Jun Hyunmoo took. So I ended up calling him. I was like, “Why does my life have to be like this?” Out of the blue? Just out of the blue. And he tried to console me. But he said I cried. I don’t remember any of this though. Huijin, aren’t you a drinker? Pardon? I used to enjoy drinking a lot. Are you saying you don’t drink now? (The fact brings out big laughs) So honest. (Dizzy) That was a good one. Huijin, have you ever made a mistake while drunk? Never. (Muffled laughter) (I’m innocent) That was the loudest I heard Dahye laugh today. – Dahye. / – I’ve never done anything. Dahye, why’d you start laughing? I haven’t done anything. We had our wrap party in February. We went drinking feeling tired after a morning shoot. When we came to our senses, Huijin and I were doing the “Get Up” dance at Yeouido park. Really? That’s because… Why “Get Up” at Yeouido? Dahye was so infatuated with that song then. She kept dancing as she got tipsier. but she was so bad at it. I danced with her to show her the proper way which happened to be in the middle of Yeouido. So that’s why it was in the middle of Yeouido. – I remember this. / – At 2 a.m. Did you dance at 2 a.m.? – Give us a peek. / – Show us. How does the dance for “Get Up” go? Show us. (Dancing) Nice! (Trying hard) Just dance however you want. (Yeouido Park at 2 a.m.) You were royally drunk. (She’s just as good as Baby VOX) Do the same move now. Nice. Dahye, you’re good at this. She could do better. She’s just not as pumped now. Taemin and Kai. You two were good friends since you were trainees. I heard that Taemin acted territorial when he first met Kai. Did I? Were you territorial? We met as students. I have an early birthday, so I started school sooner. We were both in 8th grade. I suggested we be informal. But? He wanted to be addressed as older. That’s unexpected. There was another guy who was informal with him. But Taemin wanted me to address him as older. I’d like to explain myself. Back then we had decided that we’d just go by our birth years because there could be early birthdays. So I agreed to do that with the older guys. But in the end he started speaking informally to me. Really? Kai, you couldn’t stand it and just went for it. With so many members do you get enough to eat?
