Onew: Finally we debut in Japan! I want to show our cool performances to all.
Taemin: We should be well-prepared to do so! I hope you look forward to it as we try to show perfect performances.
Key: Our debut song “Replay – you are my everything” is a Japanese version of our Korean debut song. I’m nervous how Japanese fans will think of it.
Jonghyun: There is this part, “She doesn’t know my true feelings~,” in the lyrics. It is my favorite part. It expresses the song’ s theme fully.
Key: I like that part too. It’s a totally “moving (in Japanese)” point (laugh). The M/V shows a story of five of us in love with the same girl…What if that really happens!?
Onew: Eh!? But our favorite types are different, so it won’t happen (laugh)!!
Jonghyun: If so, how would you appeal your charm? As for me, maybe frankness? But I’m not good at appealing to a girl I like. If I’d try to, I’d probably say, “I’ll sing a song for you”…
Key: Me too. Maybe frankness. I want to show the way I am to a girl I like as I do to my friends.
Minho: “Being sincere and sometimes playful” is maybe my charm (shy). And…being competitive? To a girl I like, I want to be by her side when she has some trouble.
Onew: I think my appeal point is “being friendly.” To a girl I like, I think I’ll try to strike up a conversation.
Taemin: Hmm, my strong point is maybe “working hard for whatever”? So to a girl I like, I will work hard to make her happy!
Key: Oh My God (laugh)!
Jonghyun: If I have to compete with Taemin, I’ll just give up (laugh).
Onew: (laugh) We are debuting in Japan. Do you have any memories of your birthday related to our debut?
Jonghyun: I remember everything about my birthday parties I celebrated with fans. Especially this year’s birthday party was an opportunity I was able to talk with fans after a 3~4 month term because of my leg injury.
Minho: When I turned 20, I got on a plane the day before my birthday. But when I arrived in Korea, it was the day after my birthday because of time difference. I realized how precious a birthday is! I’ll try to remember all your birthdays!!
