An Interview with TVXQ’s Yunho in Popteen Magazine

Posted by Nez

Popteen Magazine is a popular fashion magazine in Japan. In their magazine they usually have one of the cute Popteen models interview the model’s dream celebrity. This month Popteen model Murata Mari (Marimo) got to interview her dream celebrity, none other than TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki’s leader Yunho.

The miracle of them meeting!
Marimo’s miracle “Oh my god! I met Yunho!”

Even though I’m nervous I’m going to try my best! (M = Marimo, Y = Yunho)

M: I’m a model in this magazine “POPTEEN” and my name is Marimo! oh my god oh my god, do you know Popteen?
Y: I read it before to buy my sister a present.
M: Wow-! are you okay with gal’s (gyaru)? (gyaru= younger group, whose seeming lack of interest in work or marriage and younger generations may consider it clichéd)
Y: Yes it’s okay
M: That’s hilarious! okay then, do you know the “Gal words” like “age” and “sage” (age= slang used by younger generation use when your excited) (sage= slang used by younger generations, use when you’re feeling blue/down)
Y: No…I don’t know
M: Then next time when your excited try using “really age!”
Y: I’ll try using it to the members first and if their reactions are good I’ll try to spread it *laughs*

M: What kind of fashion do you like for girls?
Y: Umm.. I like what you’re wearing.
M: Really! oh my god! oh my god! then what type of girls do you like?
Y: Someone bright and who will trust me.
M: If its “ora-ora”, “nyan-nyan”, or “ora-nyan” what are you? (ora-ora= tough,manly people use for guys & girls) (nyan-nyan= sweet,cute people use for both guys & girls) (ora-nyan= who are tough but can be cute)
Y: Eh..? O…Ora-nyan?
M: I think you’re “ora-ora” outside and at your house you’re “nyan-nyan” which makes you a “ora-nyan”
Y: Ohh, bingo then!
M: Wow! I got it right!
Y: When I’m with alot of my friends I’m the leader type and “ora-ora” but when im alone with my girlfriend I’m more “nyan-nyan”
M: What word would make you happy?
Y: Hmm.. “I’m happy”? when I’m with her and if she said she was happy I think it’ll make my heart skip a beat.

M: I’m happy now! haha this is the happiest day of my life! Oh I’m going to Korea next time, where were you born?
Y: It’s this place called “Gwangju”. Its like Japan’s Nagoya. There are a lot of guys who are manly.
M: Like Kyushu-danji? (Kyushu-danji= guys who are born in Kyushu part of Japan, they are known to be strong and has the image of a heavy drinker) I was born in Chiba and we’re famous for peanuts and watermelons…
Y: My hometown is famous for watermelons too
M: Wow! what a coincidence! What kind of a guy were you as a high school student?
Y: I was bright and loved sports. I was like an athlete. Right now I’m a senior at college and I’m studying now to go to graduate school.
M: Wow! What do you do on your days off?
Y: I go to the movie theater, I travel with my friends and take pictures.
M: What are you interested in right now?
Y: Snowboarding… I go snowboarding a lot
M: Right now I’m actually studying Korean and I was planning to introduce myself in Korean but I was so nervous I forgot!
Y: What do you know ?
M: Yunho Oppa
Y: It feels nice to be called that
M: Lastly, is there a message for the readers of Popteen?
Y: Spring is a new start. everyone should plan something to do and do it! and when you know it you’ll probably be a better woman. I’ll be cheering for you Marimo-san.
M: When I was going through tough times, I always listened to Tohoshinki’s songs and got power. And when I see you I get power too. I think that’s how everyone feels.
Y: That really made me happy!
M: Thank you so much! My hands are sweating, my hands are sweating! It’s so hot!

Marimo’s personal blog entry:

Finally…the day i can say this came!!
I’m sure there are people who know this already but…Yes, a miracle happened.

I was able to meet Tohoshinki’s leader Yunho-san(>_<)!!!!
Seriously it’s a miracle!! I’m the one who is the most surprised. I did say that I wanted to see him, but it was just a dream and it was a dream I wanted it to come true...
But you don’t think that the dreams really going to come true… When I was asked to be the interviewer I seriously screamed.
The day of the interview I had to take the taxi alone but I was so nervous that I got off at a place I don’t even know. Dreams…do come true (;_;)

And whats funny is that on page 91 i was talking with Kumiko that I want to meet Yunho *laughs* It was a few days after that, I really think that this is the biggest miracle that will happen in my life *laughs*

It’s really rare that a fan can interview like this so I really wanted to talk about what people want to know, what people what to hear, and what people want to tell him... but I was so nervous that day I don’t even remember what i talked about *laughs*

I was soo nervous until the article was made, Worried if I didnt say something weird *laughs*
When I saw the article, it was what I thought it would be like.
I can tell I was nervous *laughs*
But there was one thing I wanted to tell Yunho no matter what. I wanted to tell him how much just Tohoshinki being here can make people happy.

And thats not just people in Japan, of course the Tohoshinki fans in Korea, China, Taiwan,other Asian countries, and everyone all around the world probably feels like that. So please smile now and forever, I said something that it doesn' t make sense *laughs* but I thought that is something that everyone wanted to tell them.
I don't know if I was able to tell him completely but I know that's what I wanted to tell him so I remember *laughs*

In me Tohoshinki, Yunho is someone that I look up to as an entertainer and as one person... I respect him. I can’t laugh here.
After meeting him of course I became a bigger fan and i really felt that i can respect all of him.
I will cheer Tohoshinki and UKnow/Yunho forever!!
Thank you for the precious time.

I guess dreams really do come true *laughs*
It’s a Miracle-!!!
