Officials for the movie have stated "Starting a month ago we were inundated with wreath inquires from Hallyu Star Kim Jaejoong's domestic fanclubs as well as fans from Japan, China and other overseas countries. The amount of support wreaths that the fanclubs wanted to send ended up being too great.

The Samsung Blue Square, where the showcase will be held on the 16th, is a briefing venue that has 1000 seats. Because it is a smaller space, and a large amount of fans want to attend, the staff is paying special attention in order to fight congestion problems.

They also had an interview for the magazine. Check out below the photo's from the photo shoot featured in the magazine and their interview


Fault — How are you doing? How's the tour going?
DARA – I'm doing great! We completed our concerts in Seoul and the U.S. and are now moving on to the Japanese leg of the tour. We want to meet our fans in new countries.
Fault — You have such a large and supportive fan base. How does that make you feel as a band?
DARA – We want to thank everyone who loves and supports 2NE1, regardless of the size of our fan base.  Unfortunately, we haven't made it to South America just yet, but we're looking forward to meeting our South American fans and performing for them in the future.
Fault — What has been a standout moment for you as a group so far?
DARA – Our standout moment would definitely be our concerts.  It's always exciting and fun, and it makes us happy to be able to perform for our fans on stage.  Our New Evolution tour is even more meaningful due to the fact that it's a global tour.
Fault — What are your plans for the rest of 2012?
DARA – We plan to continue our current tour and make many fond memories! We are also continuing preparations for our next album.


Fault — Who have been some of the biggest influences on your sound and yourselves as artists?
MINZY – My biggest influence would have to be Michael Jackson: he has had the most impact on me as an artist.
Fault — With such a busy schedule, what do you like to do if and when you have any days off?
MINZY – Whenever I have time, I try to read. I like self-development books and novels as well.  I am currently reading a book called The Secret [by Rhonda Byrne].
Fault — You have received so much critical acclaim — Spin called you "K-Pop heroes", and MTV's Iggy called you "the best new band in the world", What's all the positive feedback been like for you?
MINZY – We feel honoured, and we thank everyone for seeing us in a positive light. We want to work even harder after hearing these compliments
Fault — Do you feel any extra pressure to measure up to expectations and hype of bringing the K-Pop scene to the world?
MINZY – Rather than extra pressure or a sense of duty, we just want to provide music that everyone can enjoy all over the world. I just hope that K-pop receives more love and attention in the future.


Fault — You've been working with designer Jeremy Scott for Adidas. How has that collaboration been going?
CL — Jeremy Scott really understands 2NE1 and has been our friend since our debut, so the collaboration went really well.  It was our first real collaboration with a designer, so it was very meaningful for us.
Fault — If you could work with any musical artist or band, who would it be and why?
CL — There are a lot of people we want to work with but, at the moment, we are at the stage where we want to develop as a group and focus on 2NE1. When we feel that we are ready, we will look to other artists with whom to collaborate.
Fault — 2NE1 has such a unique style, Has fashion always been important to all of you?
CL — We feel that fashion and music complement each other. It expresses our individuality and plays an important role [in] making us shine on stage.
Fault — Where do your fashion influences come from? Do you have any favourite designers?
CL — I am influenced by everything around me, the environment, music, lifestyle, and nature — they all play an important part. I am inspired every day, [especially] when I travel overseas.  Currently, Jeremy Scott and Chrome Hearts are my favourite designers.


Fault — How have fans reacted to the New Evolution tour?
BOM – We've received good reviews from the fans, because they really enjoyed the large scale of the tour.  Every time I see that, I feel really happy, and I thank everyone that's worked really hard to make this happen.
Fault — How does it feel to be the first Korean girl band to headline a global tour?
BOM – At first I felt pressure, but it honestly just made us work even harder. We are proud, because everyone is reacting positively. We'll have to work even harder now!
Fault — You rehearsed and trained as a group for about four years prior to your first release. Do you think all that formal training played a key role in your success?
BOM – Of course–YG [Entertainment, the record label and talent agency behind 2NE1] doesn't necessarily teach you a special way of doing things: they let you develop naturally and find out who you are as an artist. I feel that this really helped me personally and has played a key role in our success.
Fault — What was it like for you the first time you heard your song being played on the radio or saw your first video?
BOM –  The memory is still fresh in my head. Our training period was really long, but it was all well worth it. We felt very excited and were desperate to start performing and sharing more music with everyone!

How do you usually care for your skin?
Jessica: I usually don't drink a lot of water. You know how your skin gets dry during autumn and winter, and it's annoying having to do this and that [to care for my skin]. I want to recommend a sleeping facial pack to make your skin moist and shiny.
While recommending a color to wear for this fall, she answered, "I'm thinking of a camel color for clothing and bags."

What fashion style do you usually enjoy most?
Jessica: Like what I'm wearing now, I think earrings are pretty no matter when you wear them. I also think it looks really fashionable mixing and matching a classic, vintage bag, like what your mom used to carry around, with today's clothes and current fashion.
When asked who her ideal type was, she answered that she likes a person who does his own work well and is exceptional at what he does. She then chose Yang Hak Seon as her ideal type. She noted that he is an Olympic gold medalist, and she hopes Girls' Generation can become a gold medalist in the music industry as well.

PART 1 - Taiwan ‘Fans’ Magazine - EXO-M

Posted: 16 Oct 2012 02:30 AM PDT

EXO-M's second time coming to Taiwan. Fans gives a super amount of strength.

EXO, the new group that S.M.Entertainment have introduced this year, is composed of 12 members, then dividing them into two teams, EXO-K and EXO-M. Among EXO-M they have the same concepts as seniors Super Junior-M, hoping to have the Chinese circle as their development base, so among the members there are also native Chinese members, and they're even of a bigger proportion than that of their seniors, the 4 Chinese members among them are KRIS, LAY, LU HAN, TAO, and the two Korean members XIUMIN, CHEN, after debuting this year April, have already come to Taiwan twice, and every time they come they're even more popular, what interesting things happened this time they've come to Taiwan? Let's have a look at this exciting article up close together!

2012 Tainan International Friendly Music Concert
In Taiwan's southern portion there are rarely concert events, especially international-level artists coming to perform, September 8, "2012 Tainan International Friendly Music Concert" converged Taiwan, Japan, and Korea's amazing groups, among them were Super Junior-M and EXO-M who gain the biggest focus, the moment they appear, in an instant southern Taiwan's temperature rose several degrees.

Taiwanese, Japanese, Korean artists gathered together
In Korea, Japan, and China, starting from a few years ago, they frequently had large multinational concerts, by the performance content of the concert, aside from letting many countries' big artists interact, they also let the audience feel the power of music no matter the country, last month in Tainan there was a grand friendship festival that gathered Taiwan's Lollipop F and Dream Girls, Japan's w-inds, Koyanagi Yuki, along with the Chinese language groups from Korea, Super Junior-M and EXO-M . The artists from overseas not only personally came to perform for the fans but also took advantage of the occasion to feel Tainan's ancient capital's cultural style.

EXO-M danced until their entire bodies were sweating
When the male idol group that SM Entertainment debuted this year, EXO-M, came on stage to perform, they performed "MAMA", "Into Your World", and "History", they who just debuted in April this year, although they are a new group, through outstanding dancing and singing, they made the fans below unable to resist going crazy for them and screaming. They who came to Taiwan for the second time also felt Taiwanese fan's enthusiasm and therefore performed with even more strength, dancing until their whole bodies were covered in sweat but didn't feel tired.

Birthday: 1992/09/21 (19 years old)
Specialities: singing, piano
Experience: 2011 S.M. Casting System

Ryeowook-senior looks after people the most
Korean member CHEN, during this year June's SM TOWN Family Concert in Taiwan sang Chinese song, "Ai Bu Dan Xing (Love Doesn't Travel Alone)" with Super Junior-M's Ryeowook-senior and Eunhyuk-senior, at that time CHEN's appearance left an impression on a lot of Taiwanese fans. When CHEN talked about his favourite senior, he specifically named Ryeowook, he said, "Ryeowook-senior is always looking out for his hubaes a lot, so I'm very thankful towards him!" at the same time, at the same time CHEN also really hopes that one day he too will become a cheerful senior who looks out for his hubaes like Ryeowook. Moreover, CHEN also expressed that he really likes Wang Lee Hom's song "Wei Yi (Only One)", then everyone please look forward to when he performs this Chinese song in the future!

From morning to night his manners do not diminish
Although the resting time between schedules on EXO-M's trip this time is very short, but they were able to face every interview with a condition that was full of energy, letting people feel the liveliness of young idols! The hardest thing is that, when they go through each of these interviews, the moment they see the group of media that specially came for the interview, after doing their neat catchphrase when the interview is over they will also bow 90 degrees, a demonstration of very good manners, letting people have a wonderful and deep impression! Towards Taiwan's fans, they are also quite considerate, in the breaks in the interview EXO-M would always wave and greet the fans who were waiting in the hotel, even letting out comedic actions, letting the fans who were watching outside not feel lonely at all!

Birthday: 1990/11/6 (21 years old)
Specialties: Languages (Chinese, Cantonese, English, Korean), rap, basketball
Experience: 2007 SM Global Audition Canada

Handsome appearance, familiar personality
The handsome Kris is EXO-M's leader, aside from the steady personality that a group leader must have, he is also a man who will care for the people around him, in Taiwan when they took media interviews, once he found out that the scene needed tables or chairs, he gave an order to the members telling them to get up and help, these kinds of considerate actions are really too charismatic! Kris isn't just a man with a handsome appearance, his personality also has a lot of masculinity! So far in their debut, these short months' time, Kris feels that the greatest change that EXO-M has gone through is that with the company's special packaging, they have become more dazzling, speaking of the greatest difference after becoming a celebrity, he said: "Right now we have fans following us, so we have to be careful of our every move, we hope that we can show the best image at any time when we appear in front of the fans."

It's surprising to see the fans when catching planes
Since EXO-M came from the big family of SM, they are having concerts with seniors when they just debuted for not very long, what kind of feelings do you have towards this kind of experience? Kris said: "We're very happy that this time we came to Tainan with Super Junior-M to perform, they have always been our role models, we also personally saw the high popularity that our seniors have in Taiwan! Originally we were worried when we got to Taiwan's airport, were all the fans who had come to the airport there for Super Junior-M, that none of the fans were ours? Fortunately, there were a good number of fans who were supporting us, this made us very happy!" Kris also revealed that they are currently preparing a new album, they hope that they can quickly put out a new work and perform new songs for everyone to see.
