If you have something like, "Truthfully, that time...", please tell us. Now you can talk about that sort of things, right?

JeongminIn our debut days, we couldn't speak Japanese at all, so we memorized all the lines, and it was really difficult. (laughs)

HyunseongAt first, we couldn't speak Japanese well. So on the occasion of our concert, we made and prepared a scenario beforehand, and tried really hard to memorizing everything.

DonghyunBut on the showcase, because we were so nervous, when we went up to the stage, we forgot all the scenarios that we memorized so hard, and made us really confused.

YoungminOn the showcase, after finished his solo stage, Jeongmin hyung fell from the lift. It was not too high so he weren't seriously injured, but everyone was so surprised.

KwangminThose days were our first time have about 15-20 interviews with media in one day. We had no experience before in Korea because the system is different, so I was really surprised.

MinwooAfter we done with our 2 weeks promotion in Japan, we have hung out to Fuji-Q for one day. And because that time was so fun, we always asked our staff after that to allow us to go there for many times (laughs).

Within 3 years, what is something that have grown on you?

Donghyun: Of course, my Japanese skills! Also my gratitude to our fans.

MinwooMe too, my Japanese skills. And I think I have matured both mind and body.

KwangminI think so. I have matured in many aspects.

HyunseongFor me, I think I’m being more ready to work, and my way of thinking has grown.

YoungminMy way to deal with hard and tough times. And my mental is stronger now.

JeongminMy gratitude to our fans.

 

In the case you can go back to your first press conference aboard a cruise ship, what advice do you want to send to your three-years-ago self?

DonghyunDon't be nervous, just enjoy the moments!

HyunseongIt'll be nice if you do it more happily.

JeongminPractice your Japanese more.

YoungminDon't tremble. Be natural! (laughs)

KwangminEnjoy this moment the most.

MinwooDon't be nervous. It would go smoothly.

 

Among all of BOYFRIEND's released songs (Korean songs are included), what song that gave an influence to your way of life? Please tell us.

DonghyunFor me, it's "Party Plane". We become one with fans in our concert when sing this song, and because we able to share happiness through this song, it always cheers me up.

Hyunseong"OBSESSION". Before, if we want to have overseas activities, we have to release a Korean album (because they were more active in Japan). And I went blank that time, for a long time. In that state, we prepared the album, and it was nerve-wracking.

Jeongmin"You've moved on". It was the first time I had my own composed song released in Korea. It’s one of my "beginning" song in my life.

YoungminFor me, it's "JANUS". It's different from album that we have released before (before Janus), a transformation song which has a concept of "Strong Men".

Kwangmin"Alarm". Especially, the rap part is so emotional, also I like the song so much.

MinwooFor me, it's "Boyfriend". Because it's our debut song, we practiced it for the longest time, and we put all our hearts and souls into this song.

 

By the way, do you like your own voice? Other than yours, whose voice do you like?

DonghyunI don't like my voice at first because it's peculiar, but now I like it because it's my only own style, and my characteristic.

HyunseongI like mine, because it's my voice and I must like it. Other than mine, I think Jeongmin's voice is kind of fascinating.

MinwooI'm 100% satisfied with my voice, I think mine is very good (laughs). Also, I think Jeongmin-hyung's voice is charming.

JeongminFor me, I love my voice (laughs). About other members' voices... I think Kwangmin's voice has a characteristic.

KwangminI'm satisfied with my voice.

YoungminI like my voice that my parents gave to me.

Seriously. This.
I can imagine how stunned they were with their lacking Japanese skills then.
It's like information overload, goodness.
