Posted: 10 May 2012 08:44 AM PDT


Translations:

[series "The moment of CNBLUE" vol.3]
Today is the day off after a long time.
"What do you want to do now?" 
Jonghyun:
I want to listen to the music in my room at ease.
I can hardly make time to clean my room. So I want to clean my room. If I have a girl friend, I'm sorry but I'm happy if she helps me. Listening to the music and practicing in cleaned room, it's my best day off. This is an enabled use of the day off, right?(laugh) I'll practice in spite of day off, "majime"(earnest/honest).. But still doing the music is the best time for me.

Jungshin:
I want to cook meal and watch DVD.
If I'm alone, when I got free time I think "netai"(want to sleep) at the moment (laugh). If I have a girl friend, I want to cook meal and eat and then watch DVD together at ease, it is the ideal way to spend my off. If it's been late at night, I'll take her home! Usually my day off end sleeping only, so I want to leave from this habit.

Minhyuk:
How about spend a fun time all together?
Usually I spend a day off with CNBLUE members. I like bustling fun time. Relaxation for me is playing base ball as my hobby! When I have spare time, I think I want to do some physical activity. I'm always moving my body to play drums, though (laugh). But sport is not same as drums. Besides, sometimes I'm into the game, so I'm trying to divide my on and off time clearly.

Yonghwa:
I might be "majime"(earnest/honest), I want to compose songs.
I want a time to make songs much more! If I spend spare time with my girl friend, I won't let go of the guitar. Besides, I want to go to watch the movie. I'll watch the latest movie at that time. I can hardly take a decent off time though, If I can ensure even have time to sleep, I can work hard. Sleeping is my best stress release!

[NEWS] The 6 boys from outer space, EXO-K "We do have powers"!

Posted: 10 May 2012 08:32 AM PDT




EXO has done 100 days worth of online promotions before their official debut. They had revealed 23 teasers, released by SM Entertainment, they have been catching the attention from many fans before they even had their debut.

EXO-K is composed of Suho, Baekhyun, Chanyeol. D.O, Kai and Sehun make a big unit called EXO with EXO-M which is consisted of Xiumin, Luhan, Kris, Lay, Chen and Tao. They will divide and promote in China and Korea, there are possibilities that they will promote together as 12 members.

We met EXO-K for an interview and from the first sight, the members had amazing visuals. EXO-K shows off some great visuals as to other idol groups along with their manly side, cuteness and other charms possessed by the other six members. 

We had asked them about their team name EXO-K, which is derived from the name EXO PLANET. "I like the name. I like the name because it is pretty(Chanyeol)", "The logo is pretty as well(Sehun)" were the responses, we could see that they were full of confidence yet a bit of nervousness.

EXO's video was also a hot topic. The twelve members are defined by powers such as teleport, fire, water, earth, wind etc... They describe themselves as "We come from outer space from a place called EXO PLANET. Each member has a power", during the interview they also said "We have powers in real life, but they are hard to describe", "We are really from outer space(Chanyeol)". 

It has been around 1 year since they have gotten the name EXO and have been practicing for their debut. Chanyeol made a clear statement about this matter "The practicing wasn't as hard. Since it's something that we like and it's our dream to become singers, we had thought positively whilst practicing".

Their debut song 'MAMA' is part of SM's genre SMP (SM Music Performance). Chanyeol said "Since we have to show a good side of us by showing a good performance and voices it was hard, but we had tried our best. I felt great when we received our song for the first time. It must be a new type of song by SM. So I think it's very fresh".

EXO-K got their debut stage on SBS 'Inkigayo' on the 8th of April, along with EXO-M debuting simultaneously. When we asked them about the feedback they had gotten after their debut, Kai responded "Many people have been talking about is" and Sehun said "I think many people like us and are giving us positive feedback".

The debut of EXO-K gave out an explosive feedback. The fans had started to increase endlessly just with one stage (Along with D.O's famous mistake of 'Superior Orchestra' on a music show), the interest towards the members increased and the fanpics have started to increase as well.

But EXO-K felt quite a pity after monitoring their first performance. As soon as we mentioned about the live, they showed their pity for the performance "I had thought whether this was all we could give. We were pressured about our first live and we have never done this before.. The next day we managed to do better and are getting used to what we have to do (Chanyeol)", "I felt how the sound from an in-ear piece works for the first time (D.O)".

D.O also said "I made many mistakes, but after a few weeks I got used to the cameras so I was able to show a better side of myself". and also added "We still have a long way to go" and showed that he will work harder.

EXO-K is currently living in dorms and they have a 'family meeting' every Saturday. The six members take responsibility of taking up a chore to do and then they gather up and express their thoughts on one another by telling the strong points and weaknesses.

Their family like motto is 'Let's love'. The leader Suo had decided upon this motto. They expanded on this area "Before going on stage or having a family meeting, we say the motto to release our tension (D.O)", "It also means that we love one another but it also involves the fans and the staff who work hard for us and we are willing to spread the love. (Chanyeol).

SM's role for the rookie group is quite big. As they were preparing for the group, EXO-K got a lot of attention from Korea but then EXO-M started to gain a lot of attention from China as well, EXO misses the times that they were together in the showcase. We had asked EXO-K about a reunion for all 12 members and they revealed "There might be a day when we might promote together". They are currently concentrating on their promotions as EXO-K and EXO-M.

Their answer to the goal of this year was winning the rookie award. EXO-K showed a lack of confidence when saying "There are so many col seniors that we have to try our best as well". Then we asked them "Wouldn't EXO-K be able to win?", EXO-K has showed their fresh sides and had explained that they would use their powers to try their best.

[NEWS] EXO-K 'SM Debut' Those fierce extremes...

Posted: 10 May 2012 08:18 AM PDT



SM Entertainment, one of the best entertainment companies are famous for their numerous debuts they make. There in need of a 1~2 year worth of preparation for a group, but at times it can be extended to 7 years. You cannot ignore the amount of training they give but the competition within the trainees is fierce as well. This is because of the amount of interest given to the trainees as well. Recently EXO-K (D.O, Kai, Suho, Chanyeol, Baekhyun, Sehun) and held a recent debut with the song 'MAMA', they have already passed an immense test. They are SM's rookie of 2012, We have listened to the competition being held through the members of EXO-K.

First of all, the leader Suho has been a trainee in SM for 7 years and finally had his debut. His trainees juniors have also debuted before him. He must've bene hurt when this case happens.

"There were times when I wanted to give us. I tried my best. That is true. Keeping a mind control had been of big help. I think this is the reason why I was able to stay strong for 7 years. You cannot ignore the advice and help given by the seniors."

Chanyeol was casted during high school and had 4 years worth of training, had a method of keeping himself strong.

"I tried my best to show the best of me from others and believed in myself that I'd debut in a team. I thought that I had a better sense of rhythm than the others when I played the drums because I learnt it at a young age. I was a bit stronger in rap than the others and showed that anyone could be good in rapping. I kept in mind that if there is something I am good at, I'd keep it to myself forever."

Sehun had 4 years of training and was first casted in 6th grade, then had auditioned for 2 years which led him to start the trainee period from 8th grade. Sehun's weapon was dancing.

"I liked to dance at a young age. I believed that I was better than anyone else. But dance is not only about copying a dance, I found out that you ad to continue watching the dancers and investigating the steps."

Baekhyun had the shorted trainee period of 1 year, we could call him a lucky one. "I think that I was quite lucky (laughs). When I first came in as a trainee, I thought that the other trainees were way higher up than me in skills. They were good looking, great dancers, sing well. I am also lucky that I got to debut via EXO-K. I had kept into consideration on how to cross over the high barriers with my considerations. You cannot work less than the others."

Kai is a dancer who has been learning ballet and jazz dance from primary school. He became a SM trainee in middle school and had 5 years of training.

"I was the best in dance. But I was enjoying it more than working hard for it. I enjoyed learning other dances aside from baller and I like dhow dance was staying in my body. I think that I was able to debut in EXO-K because I was enjoying myself rather than being a hard worker."

D.O who is part of the vocal line was casted for his voice. He likes to sing, hence we was on various singing competitions and had a trainee period of 2 years.

"It is important to show a vocal of my own. There are many friends who sing. You have to do your best in order to master our country's ballads. I think I tried even harder to practice on R&B and Soul music. I was concerned on how different my voice was to the others."
