KEY + MINHO
CARDIGAN - Cardigan STYLE that fits perfectly as coats for spring!
It's the Key & Minho pair for the 5th volume of the series! They
tried and swapped each others cardigans during the photoshoot. In
addition, the conversation of these same-age buddies should not be
Having a large collection of clothes helps to train in styling them well
Key: Speaking of March, it's White Day,
isn't it? Valentines is well-celebrated in various countries so there
are a few "Valentine Editions" for clothes and accessories available,
but there's nothing special for White Day.
Minho: Indeed. Like me, even though I have
memories of Valentines Day, the only thing I can recall about White Day
is giving something back to my mother.
Key: By the way, what is your memory of Valentines?
Minho: When I was in junior high,
Valentines Day fell on the same day as my exam. Then, there was this
girl one year younger than me who greeted me, "Please do your best in
the exam," and gave me a chocolate.
Key: So why didn't you give her anything in return?
Minho: Because I didn't know who she was.
Key: Ah... so that's why. What a pity.
Minho: So let's get into the topic... The cardigans we wore today fit both of us well, right?
Key: Usually I just wear dull colors like
black or white for cardigans, so when I tried on the blue one I came to
think that ones with bright colors are good too. The seasons where we
wear cardigans are not typically the seasons where we wear very many
colors, right? They are more like practical items when it's cold so I
don't choose those with colors that much. Since the style itself is
simple too, I would pay more attention to the shirts or T-shirts that I
Minho: Well... I don't give much thought
about cardigan styles (laughs). Since cardigans are worn underneath
coats, I just pay attention to points like making sure that it doesn't
stick out of the coat.
Key: It's also quite fun how we swapped our
cardigans during the photoshoot. Just when I was about to wonder how
you could pull off wearing the same cardigan that I wore, you slipped it
over your shoulders and looked good.
Minho: I just took what you always do as
reference. Wearing various kinds of outerwear would make you good at
styling your clothes for sure. I think the more clothes we have, the
more experience we gather in being able to style those clothes.
Key: We usually get a lot of chances to
wear various kinds of clothing but I heard those who aren't like us
would take around 10 years to establish their own styles. So I'm saying
that it's okay even if you're just trying them on, as it probably will
be easier for you to find your own style by wearing a lot of clothes.
We are more like evil friends rather than same-age buddies (laugh)
Key: We first met around 7~8 years ago, right?
Minho: We were still in junior high back
then. The first thing I noticed of you was your hairstyle. Your hair was
long at the side, right? That time I already knew that we're of the
same age, but my school had strict rules so I couldn't let my hair grow
long. Even your current hairstyle wouldn't be allowed according to my
school rules, yet your hair was much longer then, so I wondered whether
your school was more lenient about hairstyles. Just like what a junior
high student would think, isn't it?
Key: You were very dark, quite tan compared
to now. I was thinking that you're someone who likes sports, totally
opposite of me. I was more of a cultural student who would do things
like listening to music.
Minho: Even though we're of opposite personalities, we came to know more about each other inside and out.
Key: At first, we had only just a little
chance to see each other so we were awkward when we met. We didn't know
much about each other too, but gradually became closer after we debuted.
Then we were able to be mischievous and joke around a bit. And even
though we're of total opposites, we found a thing that we share in
common, that is, we both love to eat.
Minho: We have similar taste in food, right? Even having the same favorite restaurant.
Key: I guess we can say that our relationship is natural enough that we couldn't even remember what we ever talked about.
Minho: Yeah. We're of the same age, after all.
Key: The only ones among our members. Like someone in class that's close enough for you to feel comfortable to talk to freely.
Minho: But for me, you're an existence that would put pressure on me.
Key: Huh?! What do you mean?
Minho: Like, you would make me do
something, or tell me to go and buy something for you. But you would do
nothing in return. Got what I mean?
Key: Huh?! (Anxious). B...but, when I am
eating outside I would call for you, yet you never called for me, right?
If you called me I would have treated you to something.
Minho: That's a lie (laughs)... To sum it up, we are more like evil friends rather than same-age buddies, right?
Key: Don't sum it up like that!
Minho: Well.. (laughs). It's because we're close that we can joke around like this.
Key: That's right. If I'm really a pressure
to you, then you surely couldn't actually say I put pressure on you at
this place, right?
Minho: The pressure part is true though.
Minho: Sorry. I was joking (laughs).
SHINee's 1 question and 1 answer!!
What would you give in return to girls for White Day?
Onew: Baekseolgi (White steamed rice cake)
Jonghyun: I'll give myself as present (laughs)
Key: I wouldn't wait until White Day and give her a fashion item that's limited to Valentine Day.
Minho: Instead of just simply giving out the candies, I would give them together in some sort of surprise.
Taemin: Candies. Of various flavors.
