SHINee's appearance previewed on Happy Music!

Posted: 22 Oct 2012 08:30 AM PDT


On the 20th October, Happy Music released a 1min 30secs preview of SHINee's interview.

As the MCs entered the scene, the five shining boys could not hide their amusement with the unnaturally high voice of one of the MCs.


The curious maknae, Taemin, then proceeded to ask if it hurt the MC's throat to speak in such a high tone. Key, then did a surprising imitation and expressed that it did not hurt his throat at all.

The preview also revealed Jonghyun's answer to the question, "What is the one thing that the SHINee members must have to prepare for a live performance."


Jonghyun wrote down water and explained that he would drink it before every performance. He jokingly asked the MCs for a bit of water and the MCs played along by asking, "Would saliva do?"

The SHINee members could not hide their laughter upon seeing the variety skills of the Japanese MCs.

To find out more about what each SHINee member needs to prepare for a live performance, you'll have to wait for their full interview to be aired on 10th November on Happy Music!

At the event press conference, Kim Jaejoong brought his trademark smile and entered the venue to the cheers of the audience, and managed a little choppily to use mandarin to say "Hello". Because of language differences, Jaejoong had to constantly listen to his translator, and nod often, but all his little actions can cause his fans to cheer every time.

Kim Jaejoong said that this is his second time in Nanjing, and from his memory Nanjing has changed greatly, but the passion of Nanjing fans had left him a very deep impression.

Regarding the current Korean hit << Gangnam Style >>'s "horse dance", Kim Jaejoong expressed that he would very much like to dance it once. "I really like the horse dance, but my manager dances it even better than me", and encouraged his manager to dance it once right there. When asked if he has plans to do the "horse dance" for fans at the fan meeting, Kim Jaejoong looked extremely shy. Kim Jaejoong debuted in 2003 as a member of DBSK, and as of 2010 he is active as a member of JYJ, and due to his clear vocals and handsome appearance won the love of many fans in China.

Big Bang has proven itself to be one of a kind once more through its recent concerts in Taiwan. The group brought in some 20,000 fans (each day) recently for its two day concert in the Taipei Arena in Taiwan on October 20 and 21 as part of its ongoing Alive Galaxy Tour 2012.

The five members not only performed in two sold out concerts, ticket sales alone reportedly raked in 118.5 million Taiwan dollars in total (approximately 5 billion Korean won or 4.5 million USD), making it the highest ticket sales for a Korean artist in Taiwan.

Arriving in Taiwan on October 19, the group was quickly escorted through a specially-prepared separate gate, but even there, a swarm of fans and press outlets such as Taiwan's NEXT TV and others were on hand to cover their arrival. After holding a press conference, the group kicked off its two-day concert the next day, where it performed smash hits Lie, Blue, Fantastic Baby and some 25 tracks in all in front of a passionate crowd. Among those in the audience were some of Taiwan's biggest stars, including Vivian Hsu, Vanness Wu, Xinbo Fu, Lam JJ and more.

It marked only the second time Big Bang has gone to Taiwan in their career with the group having paid their first visit this past April to commemorate Alive selling over 20,00 copies and achieving double platinum status.
