Date with Super Junior – Interview w/ Yesung Page 2 (1/2)Trans
Q. If you go on a date, what kind of date would you like to go on?
A: First, I want to hold hands where there are many people, and go to a movie theater.
And an amusement park too. I want to enjoy the happy mood of the amusement parks with her.
Also go to beach together, and I enjoy traveling, so I’d like to go overseas too.
-You enjoy traveling.
A: Yes. I like watching movies but I also want to go to New Zealand, where Lord of the Rings was filmed. Before then, I liked NBA so much, I wanted to become a sports journalist for basketball. I want to go to USA, Europe, and France to go watch the games.
Q. It is said that as you age, your interest (in woman) changes. Did you have a type you liked in past, but now different?
A: As for my ideal type, I like girls who don’t have powerful presence, and not self-centered. I’d like her to have a light skin, and a calm personality.
Too much makeup, or women with sexy mood isn’t really (my type)… (laughs)
Q. Fashion you’d like for her to wear?
A: I like slim style. It is good to catch up to the trend too, but not too much exposure. I like styles that would show their unique charms.
Q: What type of girls do you think members would match well with?
A: someone who is very understanding. Members say kind, honest, and calm feeling girl would match them well.
We have many members, but all of us are very pure(/innocent), so girls like that would match them well.
Q: Is there a member who is very 4th Dimensional? (Off the wall/ Weird)
A: Sungmin-ee. In the past, he was normal, but as time is passing, I think he is the most 4th Dimensional. (Laugh) I can’t even think what type of women would match him.
This is of course, with Heechul hyung excluded (laughs) When Heechul hyung is included, he is the best (laughs)
Q: what topics do men get loud in?
A: Right now, the most discussed topic among us (SJ) is topic about the future. We know that there are fans overseas, so we discuss places we’d like to go out to. Because we are preparing Super Shows, we talk about this topic even more.
Q: What do you want to hear the most if you have a girlfriend?
A: won’t everything your girlfriend say sound good, regardless of what it is? (Laugh)
Q: Then what about something you wouldn’t want to hear?
A: “Let’s break up” “I’m tired of you” “Let’s stop seeing each other” I don’t like things like this.
Q: Please say something to your girlfriend( readers)
A: I am the type that can’t talk well with their girlfriend… but… “Call me when you get home!”

Q: This Spring and Summer, what kind of fashion is good?
A: I don’t have a particular style I like, it just changes daily, depending on the mood or the situation. I don’t have a style chosen.
Q: Spring is the season for entrance (to school) or (start of new school year). There are people who have trouble making new friends, what advice would you give them?
We were once a student too. And after becoming a singer, we had to meet many new people. While doing this, I realized this
I think it is important to approach others comfortably. Instead of blaming others (for not having any friends), try looking back at yourself first.
Or instead of thinking about other people’s thoughts and views of you, just think “I have to do well myself”, and you’ll be able to do well.
Q: Super Show 5 has started, I think the reactions from each countries would be different. What were you surprised about?
A: Everything. We have different impressions left from each country, and Japan has left me the most. Because we’ve done many concerts here, and we’ve visited here often.
And for me, the last overseas concert was in Japan… I am not the type to cry easily, and the reason I cried at KRY Concert was because I knew it was the last overseas concert I could participate in before enlisting. Many thoughts popped up in my head, and tears flowed.
Q: If you have free time, what would you like to do?
A: I am the type to receive stress if I am not working. So I want to go help my parents, or study since I have an interest in designing and fashion.
I studied art for about 4 years. I want to study composing, and foreign languages too.
Q: You have good skin!
A: I’m like my mother, so I have a fairly good skin. Thanks to it, I’ve never had to go get a skin care at a dermatologist. I do get thoughts about starting to take care of it but… (laughs)
When you go get skin care, you have to stay still for a long time. But I don’t think I’ll be able to stay still. And I am the type that cannot fall asleep in places like that, so I can’t stay long at hair salons too (laughs)
Q: Every one of your drama OSTs were a hit
A: Many people liked it, and I am very thankful. “It has to be you” had a very good reaction, and I feel that other songs weren’t as a hit, so I feel sad about it.
Q: How do you express sad emotions while singing?
A: First, when you sing, you pay attention closely to the lyrics. I think that the most important part was that I met a good drama. Many people tell me my voice isn’t normal. My voice makes them sad. I think the song matched me because of that too. Ballad is actually very hard.
Q: “That winter, the wind blows”‘s “Gray Paper” was also very popular. You sang it on SS5.
A: “Gray Paper” appeared many times in the drama, only as the instrumental version. I felt sad about the song not appearing as much, but since there were my fans who have been waiting for the song, I sang it during the concert. I wanted to let them hear it.
Q: It’s Spring, do you have any special plans such as traveling?
A: I am sensitive to season changes. I enjoy traveling but my situation will not allow me to go around comfortably (laugh) I am spending my time in my own way. Last week, I visited Hongdae. I also visited a cafe. I went at a time when there weren’t much people. Some Japanese people recognized me, and it was fun.
Q: Message to Japanese fans please
A: I won’t be able to meet you guys for a short time, but if those who are reading this magazine forget about me during the time… I won’t let you go safely!
