[TRANS] Japan Fanclub Newsletter – SPECIAL INTERVIEW PART 1
*Yong Junhyung – 「Actually I’ve been planning to go to Japan again after the Japanese tour」*
*The first Japanese tour ‘BEAUTIFUL SHOW’ has ended safely. It has been a month since the last concert in Japan how do you feel right now?*
As it ended safely my heart feels good, even though I keep thinking “I was able to do a little better”, I was thankful that it ended without any large incident. To me what’s most important is how Japan fans think about it. Because we’re in Korea, we may not have activities in Japan. But the fans waited for us and continued to support us therefore I wanted to give the Japan fans something back. In this Japan tour I’m happy to be able to repay a little.
*What was the most impressive thing in the tour?*
I remember the audience’s pen lights. In Korea and in other countries, fans hold pen lights and cheer, but there was a touching sense of unity for the first time in Japan. Since then whenever I think about it I get a warm feeling in my heart.
*There seems to be a lot of preparation for the Japanese tour. In preparing the Japanese tour, which is the parts you have most concern about or the most difficult part?*
The Japanese tour itself was a difficult thing… As expected there was a schedule. 6 shows in 7 days. Frankly, moving in concert every day was physically difficult.
*Before the Japan tour, Germany, Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan and other counties had the concert too right.*
That’s right. As we were mobilzed at different places frequenty, there was jetlag…. Because of a tour l like the Japan tour, managing my condition was hard. Before the concert I was tired but when the concert started I forget about how tired I was, I was able to enjoy the stage where I had no focus on but, but…
If we can hold another Japan tour again, I would prefer a more relaxed schedule, I hope (laughs). Where in all performance I can afford to be in the best condition and in the mood I want to be in (laughs). In all concerts I want to show my best performance, because if I’m in a bad condition in a performance I’ll feel apologetic to the people who came.
*Was there anything happening or unforseen during the tour? If there was any funny moments do let us know.*
During this first Japan tour I rode the Shinkansen (Japan’s high speed train). I wanted to try the bullet train as I’ve heard people talking about it before, but actually it was like the subway train, clean and comfortable. As I’ve always think that the streets in Japan are very clean and the people are friendly my heart feels comfortable too.
*Did you ate a lot of delicious food?*
Yes. I ate so much Ramen that I could die!!(laughs). Other than that what did I eat~. Other than Ramen I can’t think of any other food I had(grins). I ate that much Ramen. Ah-, Thinking about it now it’s a little pity. I wish I could try out more food…. I hope there was a free space in the semantic schedule, since there was no such thing and I’m back in Korea I am personally planning to go to Japan once more.

*Huh? You’ve went back to Korea after finishing the tour and you want to come to Japan once again?*
Yes. I was thinking about that during the few days of vacation in April, going to Japan again to try the food that I couldn’t eat due to the Japan tour, going from places to places like a tourist. I’ve talked to it with a friend and we searched for flight schedules but, suddenly something comes up…. Ah-, Thinking of that again it’s such a pity~.
*’BEAUTIFUL SHOW’ was held in Korea, Japan, Europe and Southeast Asia right. Compared to all was Japan an impressive country?*
It was Germany. Most of the audiences had blue eyes. To be able to perform in front of the Europeans was an amazing thing. We ourselves also thought “how did the people of Europe felt our charms?” We were curious, but personally I didn’t even dream of being able to have a concert in Europe…
*Which country would you like to add in for the next concert?*
I don’t have a “especially here!” place. I would like to try the United States, Um. I like countries like Japan and Asian counties. The fans in Asia have a friendly feel.
* What was your mental state before performing? Nervous? Anxiety? Expectations? Burden?*
There’s not only one feeling. Stress, anxiety, expectations, burden, but a little of each, but I feel all of it. The biggest one would be anticipation and tension, I feel very little anxiety. And if you continue to feel all these in every stage, you’ll have a hard time psychologically.
*There’ll be a fan meeting in Japan on 8th August, other than wanting to do well, do you have any other expectations?*
I’m already planning what to do to, how to interact with the fans and reviewing what the fans hope for so I’m anticipating it. It’s different from a concert, I feel anticipated and excited.
*The fanclub was found 1 year ago. Lastly, what do you wish to say to Japan b2uties?*
Truthfully to the Japan b2uties I feel sorry and thankful. Even though we’re not active in Japan, you still cheered for us deligently. Other than us there are other artists who are more active in Japan but it is because our hearts are inclined that keeps us going, the hearts of b2uties did not even think of moving away, always loving us and cheering for us, just saying thank you is not enough. This year the activites in Japan will always be a savor, as our members now think that we had the power to do it. I think we’ve repaid b2uties’ affections this time. In March we stood sincerely on stage for the Japan tour. In the future to repay your support well, I will work hard!!
