    A special thanks to Keito, who translated this magazine!

    The first part about Android is not translated because it was pretty much the same as previous interview.

    DVD “Tohoshinki Live Tour 2012 ~TONE~”, which recorded your live stage in Tokyo Dome, has just been released. What was in your mind just before the opening of that stage?

    CM: “Live” means not only a concert, but also living or being alive, doesn’t it? I really feel “I am alive on this stage”, so more than anything else I wanted to show the fans that I was enjoying the stage..... When I think that way, I don’t feel nervous any more. I was thinking that way before every single stage in this tour. In the past when I made a mistake on stage, I used to feel regret or to blame myself like “Why did I make such a mistake here?”. But in this tour, I was determined to enjoy the stage to the fullest from the beginning till the end, and I feel like it set me free by doing that.

    YH: I utter my magic word before going on a stage. People see me as a confident person, but that’s not true. Personalities’ of Yunho on stage and off stage in daily life are totally different, so I normally utter the magic word “I will be Yunho of TVXQ right now” to myself. But I forgot to do that once….and my mind was a bit weak until I turned on the switch.

    Did you notice that, Changmin?

    CM: Yes, he looked uneasy.

    By the way, was there any special ritual you did during this tour?

    YH: After we fired ourselves up in a circle with the staffs, Changmin and I had to go to the different spots for the opening scene. So we put our fists together (make a fist with his hand) then moved to our own positions.

    There were many scenes you two had eye contacts when passing by each other on stage.

    YH: We speak through our eyes then. To see other’s condition or if he is enjoying.

    CM: To be honest, I feel self-conscious about it. I feel shy when our eyes meet even on a stage. (Laugh)

    Is that so. By the way, we use the set for this photo shoot which resembles the poles you slid down in “I Think U Know”. Was there any interesting episode about it?

    CM: When I slide it down, my costume rubs against the pole. I remember that my skin got rubbed and that stopped me in the middle of the pole. So I had to jump off instead, that was not cool. (Laugh)

    YH: I had to slide it down within a second right after singing my part. When I lost my concentration a bit, I ran out of time and had to jump off the pole in the middle. That hurt. You can’t be spaced out. (Laugh)

    You learnt these things, too…(Laugh) The stage production changes for almost every single song, you sing and dance tremendous amount from the beginning till the end. I believe the rehearsal must have been really tough.

    YH: The most difficult part was the 3-D Mapping. We used it in “MAXIMUM” and “I Don’t Know”, our dance moves needed to match with the movements on the 3-D screen and that was difficult. We practiced that part in the studio with our imaginations, so we didn’t know how it turned out until we did the rehearsal on the stage. I got a little nervous as they did not match well first at the rehearsal.

    CM: I had to sing on many high-key parts this time, so I made my appeal to our manager “There are many high-key songs throughout it, it’s so hard.” But a human-being……can get used to it. Gradually I was learning to control my voice better. So I was like “It’s a bit annoying, but I’ve got used to it now.” (Laugh)

    YH: That’s called a progress! Thanks to Changmin, also I learnt how to sing on high-key. I’ve managed to sing on a higher-key by 4 notes than I used to in the past. I learnt that I can do it if I try.

    And Yunho, you were moved to tears at the encore.

    YH: That surprised me, too.

    Like I can’t believe the tears are rolling down?

    YH: That’s right. The fans did the surprise for us in “STILL”, I was already very touched by it then but I managed to pull it off at that time. But when we sang “Weep”, which has the exact message I want to say to our fans, I could not hold it off any more.(Laugh) I was like - so many things have happened until now, it’s like a dream that TVXQ have reached here-. I felt like I was in a dream. Many memories and history in the past came flooding all at once, I became honest to my emotions and cried. I was embarrassed….

    When we see that video, we can see that Changmin was close to tears, too.

    CM: I was not like that. But if it makes you think that way……(Laugh)

    Is it hiding your embarrassment!? (Laugh) Okay, Changmin, would you please let us know one song you felt quite emotional while singing it?

    CM: Let’s see….. That’s “Shiawase Iro no Hana (Flower with the colors of Happiness)”. This song has the exact messages which we want to convey to our fans, and we express the feelings fully in it with the top of our voices. I immerse myself in it, this song makes me really concentrated.

    We need to check out your facial expressions in this song, too. (Laugh) Please tell us your up-coming schedule.

    CM: We will perform at summer festivals, and are doing a recording. We are hoping to make good music and see you all with it again. So please look forward to it.
