01. Love 
Q: What would you do and where would you go if you get to date in summer ? 
Eunhyuk: If I managed to get a girlfriend, it’s okay if we don’t go anywhere and don’t do anything. I want to just stay in the house, keep the windows open, sit in front of the fans and eat watermelon. 

Q: The speed for you to fall in love ? Fast type ? Slow type ?
Donghae: I take 25 years (laughs). When I was a child, I didn’t think of anything and just liked someone but now that I’m getting older I think of a lot of thing and got more cautious. That’s why I think only about ELF Japan wholeheartedly ! 
Eunhyuk: *burst into laughter*
Donghae: That’s it ! *triumphant look*
Eunhyuk: For me, 3 seconds ! For us to love a large crowd of fans we need to be this fast right ? When we have concert in Dome, we’ve gone through such hardship because we need to love all the fans~ I’m kidding, but me and Donghae we both have a lot of similarities, and our speed to fall in love is also around the same. I also changed to a more cautious person when I get older. 

Q: How do you approach the girl you’re interested in ? Aggressively ?
Eunhyuk: I fall in love slowly and when I find someone who is good, I’m the type who will express my feeling and fall in love with her even if she sometimes hurt my feeling ! I will call and text her aggressively ! Otokomae desho ? (Handsome right ?) *triumphant face* 
Donghae: Me too, when I fell in love I will confess to her “Let’s date !” straightforwardly.
Eunhyuk: But you take 25 years to fall in love, but if you confess and got rejected you need to wait for another 25 years right ? *laughs*

Q: About “Kimi ga naitara”. What would you do if the girl you like cries ?
Eunhyuk: I will cry too……No, I will cry harder until she will be the one who need to comfort me. So that she will forgot about her crying. 
Donghae: I’ll do a lot of things. Sometimes even when she’s crying beside me I will leave her alone. We sometimes have times that we want to cry alone so I will be concern, just in case. Then, I will scold her “Don’t cry !” *laughs*. But of course I will console and give her a hug too ! 

Q: What do you think of RAY ? Do have any fashion you want for girls ? 
Donghae: Just now when I was looking at Ray with Eunhyuk, we talked about how some are adorable and cute. I want to have fun looking at girls fashion, and when she’s with me….I saw just now (flipping through the mag). For example, border top with jeans, I like this kind of casual style. 

02. Japan Tour
Q: The moment when your spirit get high during the concert ?
Donghae: The opening. During D&E concert, we started our live with riding on a mirror ball and come down to the stage, the lighting reflected on the mirror ball and shine on the whole venue and it was really pretty. 
Eunhyuk: I was so happy when all the fans remember our songs and sang together with us. At first, everyone didn’t do well but we told them to practice a lot of times *laughs*. At first we also taught them very strictly *laughs*. Each time we did another live, everyone sang together with us and we were really thankful. 
Donghae: Also, when the fans are crying, rather than happy I feel more sympathy for them. I sometimes get into high spirits when I go to another artist’s concert too, it’s the same and I feel that fans were really moved. 

Q: Throughout D&E, is there anything you feel amazing and reliable about each other ?
Eunhyuk & Donghae: Not at all ! (answered at the same time) 
Donghae: The fact that we two released and album and do concert tour is already amazing right ?
Eunhyuk: It would be good if we did this earlier. In concert we totally relied on fans’ existence.
Hae: Yes yes. When we make mistakes in singing or dancing, Japanese fans always say "It’s okay" with very warm look, just like a mother. 
Donghae: Ah, come to think about it, in the concert Donghae improved a lot in singing and I think it’s amazing *laughs*.

Q: Episodes during the tour that you can finally talk about now ?
Eunhyuk: During the tour, we played soccer game and cards in the hotel, anyway we played a lot. 
Donghae: We also saw a lot of pretty sceneries from the hotel.
Eunhyuk: There’s definitely a convenience store near our hotel, and at each store we went to, we tried a lot of new food.
Donghae: The staffs even thought that we couldn’t sing when we’re hungry *laughs*.

Q: Things you must do before you stand on stage ?
Eunhyuk: On concert day, I watch MVs and concert footages of Michael Jackson, Chris Brown, Justin Timberland that I like the most, and give the effect to myself. I watch them to follow their postures while on stage. The solo stage I did during the tour was With You by Chris Brown and I really love this song since long before. If I get to fell in love with someone, I want to sing this song for her. I love ELF Japan too and that’s why I chose this song.

Q: What do you want to do if you have a second D&E tour ?
Eunhyuk: In the next tour, I want to go and play at fans house! *laughs*
Donghae: What about doing it at Tokyo Tower ? I want to take pictures there. We saw Tokyo Sky Tree from afar, it would be good if we can do concert there too right *laughs*.

03. Member
Q: Tell us three things that you like and respect about Eunhyuk!
Donghae: The fact that I can laugh just by looking at him *laughs* it sounds a bit like i’m joking but it’s my true feelings. It’s because all the members feel at ease when they’re with Eunhyuk. He’s that kind of person. He’s like an older brother, a younger brother, a friend. So when the members have worries or troubles, they go to Eunhyuk. I am envious of that quality and sometimes I want to learn from him and become like that. Two more? …… there aren’t any more *laughs*

Q: Tell us three things that you like and respect about Donghae!
Eunhyuk:  err three…… there aren’t three *laughs* there are two though. Donghae takes good care of the people around him. That’s the first thing. I am shy and can’t express my feelings well but Donghae is sociable. When he meets people, he frequently contacts them and invites them to go eat. The second is how he is good at planning schedules for the day. Compared to me who likes to relax at home, Donghae is very active and energetic. There is no third. No? um…… ah! How he is well-mannered toward all women *laughs*

Q: How were the other super junior member’s reaction to your success in japan?
Donghae: Ryeowook who came to see the Osaka show said he was very moved. He said 'we're members but you looked cool and I am thankful to be able to work together with you.' Siwon said 'I am proud of you as a friend.' Eunhyuk, Siwon and I are members and also friends or companions, or a team. I’m thankful to have someone beside me who supports and who I can rely on without keeping secrets from me.

04. Myself

Q: What was your dream as a child?
Eunhyuk:  I’ve wanted to become a singer since I was a teenager and it hasn’t changed since. Actually I don’t think I have a particular talent. So when I first said i wanted to become a singer my parents worried, 'can you be a singer?' but with continuous effort, I was able to become a singer. If it’s something you really wish to do, dreams do come true.

Q: What kind of fashion do you usually like? Anything you are particular about?
Eunhyuk: I used to be interested in fashion but recently I like comfortable clothes. There are two or three brands that I like. But if i were to give something I pay particular attention to, It’d be choosing clothes that fit your body properly. I think Yesung is probably the most fashionable out of all the members. Lately he knows a lot about brands and pays extra attention.

Q: what do you do to keep in shape?
Donghae: Rather than to keep in shape, I workout to eat. I’ve always liked to exercise so I eat a lot and exercise a lot. I always workout an hour a day. If I have time in my schedule, an hour and twenty minutes. We have many concerts so I consider concerts to be aerobic exercise. On concert days it’s a routine to do weight training after I get up in the morning.

Q: What is your favorite word out of the japanese you have recently learned?
Eunhyuk: Are dialects okay? ‘menkoi’ ‘bucchi’ ‘aishitoruke’. I learned them while going on tour and I found the dialects from each area interesting. I memorized the Japanese answering machine message but now I am thinking about memorizing the subway guidance.

Q: What do you collect?
Donghae: Pictures and frames. I buy them when I go overseas. In my room I have a picture of 'beauty and the beast' that I bought in new york and a picture of Audrey Hepburn I bought in Germany. I like collecting things but I don’t buy things that I will eventually throw away. I often buy old chairs and sofas, sets of pictures and frames.

Q: There is a song called ‘ten years’. What kind of person do you want to be in ten years?
Eunhyuk: Actually iI seriously thought of myself ten years later when i heard this song. First of all I thought ‘oh i must have a wonderful wife!’ *laughs* I wish to have a cute daughter and a pretty wife in ten years.

Q: If you were to say something to yourself ten years ago, what would you say?
Donghae: I should’ve studied harder *laughs* I think the best way to learn is through experience in life but I should’ve studied foreign languages harder. This is something I felt as I was traveling to many countries in the past ten years. Looking back on myself ten years ago, I think I was still a child. I was the youngest child who stuck to the people around me and my seniors and brothers were very good to me. Even so, I had a plan of my own and now it’s come true so I think my life is something I should be grateful for.

05. Future
Q: What do you think is the advantage of Donghae & Eunhyuk?
Donghae: We have grown up in similar conditions. We weren’t the most fortunate while growling up so I think it’s an advantage that we can work hard no matter what difficulties we face.
Eunhyuk: Yes. As long as we have food we can do it! *laughs*

Q: What kind of activities would you like to do as Donghae & Eunhyuk?
Eunhyuk: We want to become a concert unit so we want to perform in not only japan but in many other countries in Asia.
Donghae: We’ve recently talked about wanting to do many concerts. We want to grow so that we can meet many fans.

Q: Give your Japanese fans a message!
Eunhyuk: Releasing an album, holding a tour, filling all the venues. They are all things that wouldn’t have come true without the fans so we are very thankful. We will work hard to do another tour so please support us!
Donghae: This is the start for us so until we can see you next time please stay healthy.
Eunhyuk: We always want to become closer to you~


{ D&E talk about Skeleton }

Q: What kind of song is the new single ‘Skeleton’?
Eunhyuk: I think we were able to show our growth with 'Ride me' but 'Skeleton' is a song that you can feel how Donghae & Eunhyuk will continue to grow.
Donghae: It has a different feel compared to our past songs so we recorded with fresh feelings.
Eunhyuk: It was a song we have never tried before so our feelings of wanting to challenge was strong.
Donghae: From the title the image might be a little dark but it is a dance tune that makes your body move when you listen to it.
Eunhyuk: There are screams that reminds you of horror movies so I think it’s perfect for the coming of summer.
Donghae: Let’s overcome the summer together by listening to ‘skeleton’!
Eunhyuk: At first I was worried if I could do the fast Japanese rap so I had some difficulty. Japanese pronunciation is difficult! There is a part where I move my tongue and mouth saying 'burururu~~' but once I got it I couldn’t stop doing it *laughs* try it and see it if you can do it well!

Q: What is the highlight of the ‘Skeleton’ mv?
Donghae:We wanted the image of the song to be easy to understand so we used a skeleton doll.
Eunhyuk: Please look forward to the three shot scene with Gorugoru-chan (the name of the skeleton) *laughs*
Donghae: The party scene where we filmed with fluorescent paint on our bodys and special lighting was really fun, wasn’t it?
Eunhyuk: Yes it was fun but the filming was so hectic that Gorugoru-chan got even skinnier...*laughs*
Donghae: From 'Oppa oppa' to ‘Motorcycle’ there were dance moves that we could do together with everyone. This time there is a funny dance called 'Bone dance' that everyone can do *laughs* I want to do it with everyone.
Eunhyuk:  Please practice the bone dance while waiting for us. We will go and check the result of your practice and how well you can do it! *laughs*

Q: What are your plans and goals as a group for the future?
Eunhyuk: Leeteuk (the leader) will return soon so we are preparing hard to release a new super junior album in Korea within this year. Please wait for it.
Donghae: I would like everyone to anticipate the new album of course but also the Donghae & Eunhyuk’s single. I want to work harder as Donghae & Eunhyuk and deliver our music and performances to places that Super Junior couldn’t go to.
