Ps: Sorry I just get to translate it ^^; I compiled it from many articles (but I translated the first article full), and chose the interesting ones. Enjoy it! ^^
-- Now you're in the middle of rehearsal. You spend many times together, so please describe in a few words about your "Bachelor's Vegetable Store"'s team
Donghyun: “There’s this lyrics in one of the musical’s song, ‘Please come to fresh Chonggakne’. Just like that, I think we’re a wonderful and fresh team…”
-- By the way, among four of you, who is the “Fresh No.1”?
Donghyun: “You know, it’s me……”（Everyone burst out laughing）
Ricky: “Donghyun hyung’s current hair style is so fresh, the other members can’t beat him up (laughs)
Donghyun: Yeah! Thank you!
-- On the contrary, the one do you think isn’t fresh?
Donghyun: （Points at Seyoung immediately） Because he’s sexy! So I think he isn’t fresh (laughs)”
-- Minseok, The character of a company man who promising a brilliant future, He also has experience in working, and unites five of you, How should I describe his image? But who do you think has a same character with him in the musical?
Donghyun: Tae Sung. In BOYFRIEND, I take a responsibility as a leader. But Tae Sung (In Chonggakne Vegetable Store) is the leader. As the leader, surely we have some different styles in way, but looking from his role, it’s near to Minseok.”
-- 〈Chonggakne Vegetable Store〉’s captain (Tae Sung) ‘s name in the drama is Tae Yang, likes taeyang (sun) that bright, hot, and full of energy since the morning. I think it’s same with about Donghyun……?
Donghyun: “……No. Truthfully, I’m really helpless in the morning~. I even can’t remember anything. I like night better (laughs)”
Seyoung: Actually, he’s similar to Jifan…… (laughs)
Donghyun: “Jifan……? No, Tae Sung!!”
-- If you have a chance to act another character instead of your current role, what kind of role do you want to act?
Donghyun: “I want to act as Chuljin (Ricky’s role)! (Didn't you just make everyone believe that you're similar to Tae Sung!?) I've said it before, because I'm a leader, I want to try to be a maknae. (Says it in Japanese) I want to be the youngest member!!"
-- You just use Japanese to say “I want to try to be a maknae” out of all the talks（laughs）.
Donghyun: “I really want to know the feelings of being a maknae. Chuljin’s expression is always serious and he has a serious image……, I think I can. Of course I can! I want to try to act as him even just once.”
-- ……Huh? No one want to be Tae Sung then? (laughs)
Donghyun: “Tae Sung is an awesome role, I think act as him is good as well……”
-- But just now other members said it about Donghyun, “Isn’t he really Tae Sung!?”, didn’t it……?
Donghyun: “Didn’t I say that I want to act as a maknae too?!（laughs） Because I usually take a responsibility as the leader, I want to be a maknae. I want to try even just once!!”
-- Excuse me（laughs）. Now, we’re in the middle of stage rehearsal. When you’re practicing, is there something that left in your memories?
Ricky: “When Donghyun-hyung gave me a coffee～（clap/applause）”
Minwoo: “As I expected, because he’s our hyung!”
Ricky: “And I heard that he gave it once again……”
Donghyun: “Eh? Hmm……. Would you like a coffee again? (Everyone bursts out laughing)
Seyoung: “Donghyun-hyung is the mood maker (laughs).”
-- I think all of you can change your role
Ricky & Donghyun: “No! (laughs)
-- Because we’ve already heard an awesome comments from the maknae, so for the last let us hear a comment from the hyung, Donghyun-san please!
Donghyun: “It’s a musical which communication with the guests is really important. From their attendance, I think that we could gain a lot of energy. When we do it and our breaths meet with everyone, I think that moment would be really awesome. Please anticipate it a lot, everyone!”
- The translations below are from korepo and wowkorea -
- It’s from Ikemen Seikaten press conference. It’s not a question from reporter, it’s from Donghyun who raises his hands up and says, “I have a question!” (laughs). He makes this question because he already prepared the answers.
Q (Donghyun): What do you want to eat here (in Japan), and what place do you want to visit?
A (Donghyun himself): Fans’ loves
- Then, reporter asks. “What do you think about valentine’s day?”
A: To be honest, I don’t like chocolate, so I don’t think about valentine’s day much. Instead of chocolate, I want fans’ loves!
- Seyoung’s impressions of Donghyun:
“He looks more chic that I’ve ever thought, we have a scene together on the musical, and he’s really a mischievous kid. Also, because he has an ability to attract people around, if he’s beside you, you can feel his charms.”
- You surely have a position (charge of something) in your group. So what is your position?
Donghyun: mood maker (laughs).
- For the stage, your conditions become really important. How do you manage your conditions?
Donghyun： Because I have a weak stomach, I drink cabbages drink (Korean medicine). Stomach is really important. Also, broccoli’s drink is worth to drink.
- Hereafter, if you have a chance to do musical again, what role do you want to try to act?
Donghyun: I want to try to act a role which is not a human. Like on the production of "Lion King", the cast run around as the lion or monkey. Or a role of human transcend, like a dracula.
Minwoo: How about "Death Note"'s Ryuuk?
Donghyun: If "Death Note", I want to be L.
Minwoo: Aah~ you had L’s aura already.
