[TRANS] Infinite in HARU HANA Vol. 14 (October/November 2012) 


Infinite Counseling Office
The worries of the fans that were posted on Twitter, the 7 members of Infinite - at times serious, at other times carefree - answered them for us!! If you read these, you’ll definitely find a solution?!


— CASE 1: I’m a student preparing for the entrance exam, but I can’t concentrate on studying at all! Do you have any good strategies? 

Hoya: Please study while imagining that if your grades go up, you’ll be able to marry the members of Infinite. Because we like people who can study well (laugh). Other than that, a strategy I have is to give yourself a reward if you achieve a goal. For example, if you’ve studied for 3 hours, then eat something delicious. In reverse, if you were unable to concentrate, then maybe skip a meal. And if your grades go up, then you can buy something that you’ve been wanting.
Woohyun: If you want to study, try thinking about it like you’ll be able to marry a good person in the future. Actually, I used to study while slapping my cheek (laugh) 
Sunggyu: Think of the future and do your best!!
Sungyeol: When you get past the critical times in life, you will naturally want to study. I didn’t like studying either, but now that it’s so late, I want to.
Sungjong: Please eat a lemon candy. It’ll help you think better. 
L: If you study while you’re young, there will be many chances to use it in the future. Doing everything you can do right now is the greatest happiness. Because later on, even if you want to, you won’t be able to anymore. 
Dongwoo: I hope you can take the time to rest properly once and meditate by yourself. 


— CASE 2: Has everyone in Infinite been on a diet before? If you know methods to lose weight, please tell me! (>_<) Also, even though I’m on a diet, I’m not making progress right now, please encourage me so that I don’t give up~ (>_<)

L: If you reduce your sleeping time and practice dance choreography for 18 hours a day, you’ll naturally lose weight (laugh)
Sungyeol: Gaining weight becomes difficult instead (laugh)
L: Please imagine yourself after one month’s time. Or, buy clothing in your ideal size and make that your goal. I hope you can reach it. Good luck~
Sungyeol: The only thing you can do is have strong willpower. You won’t lose weight just because you’ve been encouraged. In the end, it’s a solo battle (laugh). Have a strong mind, and do your best.
Sungjong: Please eat a lot of vegetables, a little less meat, and drink milk.
Hoya: Since I had to rip off my shirt for my solo stage in our concert, I worked hard to diet during that time. I ate nothing but chicken breast and protein, and did muscle training. But, because it’s bad for your health if you don’t eat, you really have to exercise properly. If you dislike moving around, you have no choice but to gain weight (laugh). Without great effort, nothing can be achieved. You shouldn’t do it just to pursue outer beauty, but for the sake of your health, please go on a realistic diet. 
Woohyun: For me though, I dieted by skipping meals (laugh). There were days where I would eat just one meal a day, and as a result my health condition became really poor. Skipping meals is not a good strategy. Please move your body. Just like Hoya said, if you don’t like to move, you can only gain weight (laugh). I hope that you can diet without getting stressed. Do your best!!


— CASE 3: I confessed to the person I like, but he said he doesn’t want a girlfriend right now and rejected me… since then, we’ve met a few times, but it’s so awkward that we can’t even make eye contact…(>_<。)How do you think I should act around him from now on? Is it better to hold on after all? 

Hoya: Forget about that person and come to Infinite’s concert (laugh). I’m just kidding, but I think you should act naturally like nothing happened. It might be hard, but won’t you feel more comfortable with each other? 
Dongwoo: If his personality and behavior matches with yours, I think you shouldn’t rush it, and give it some thought. It’s still too early to give up. If you really feel that you like him, then right until the very end, don’t give up and try your best!
Woohyun: Since half of the people in this world are men, there isn’t only that one person. But for me, I think that if you really like him, then you should do your best and not give up. If your feelings don’t disappear, then gather your courage and try communicating with him.
Sunggyu: You should give up. I mean that as a joke (laugh), but if you really like him, then you wouldn’t give up even though I told you to just now, right? So don’t overthink it too much, and just do as your heart says. I think if you’re really meant to be, then you’ll end up together.
L: I’m not good at talking about love, so asking me is kind of… What do you think? Sungjong. (L nudges Sungjong)
Sungjong: Hmm… there are a lot of men in the world. Don’t focus on just one person and take a look at others as well, something like that… 
Sungyeol: I’m okay even if it’s awkward, so I’d want to try dating (laugh)
L: Just like the Korean proverb that says, “any tree will fall after 10 swings of an axe,” why don’t you try sticking with your love until the end? You never know if it might turn out well, right? 
Hoya: Anyway the conclusion is, come to Infinite~!! Because we will always love you~ (laugh)


— CASE 4: What should I do in order to feel my heart pounding [doki-doki]? I haven’t been in love in a long time so I’ve completely forgotten what it feels like (>_<)

Hoya: If you come to meet us, you’ll be able to feel your heart pound, and it’ll also feel like a first love. We are always inside of everyone’s hearts, but you should also save a picture of us in your cell phone to look at now and then, put up a poster in your room, or listen to our music. That way, it’ll feel like we are always by your side!
Woohyun: For now, try to meet a lot of people, and look for someone who makes your heart pound.
L: I don’t really know about this, so what do you think? Sungyeol. (this time, L nudges Sungyeol…)
Sungyeol: First, face the person you like, and say something sweet…
L: And then if you add in skinship…
Sungyeol: Oh yeah, if you add in skinship too, your heart will totally be pounding (laugh)
L & Sungyeol: (explosive laughter)


— CASE 5: Your fans are mostly in their 10s and 20s, but I’m already turning 40 years old soon. It’s embarrassing so I’ve been secretly cheering for you, but would it be okay if I declare, “I’m your fan!” and go to your performances and high-five events as well?

Sunggyu: Of course. We love all of the fans. In Korea there are also fans in their 40s who come to our events. Whoever starts to like us, since they become our fans, age doesn’t matter. My mother is also cheering for the singer she likes. Who is the singer she likes, you ask? Of course, it’s Infinite (laugh) 
Sungyeol: It’s okay so don’t worry about it. My mother is also a passionate fan of Infinite. She even joined our fanclub (laugh)
L: For us, each and every one of the fans is an important person, so please come to many of our events and enjoy them.
Hoya: It’s okay, don’t feel embarrassed. Don’t hold back because you’re in your 40s, but please cheer for us as passionately as the teenagers do.
Woohyun: Come to more and more events, and release your stress. Jumping while screaming will be fun~

[TRANS] Photo Studio: L x Sungyeol x Sungjong | Infinite in HARU HANA Vol. 14 (October/November 2012) 

L x Sungyeol x Sungjong Joint Photoshoot


Photographed by L

L didn’t direct these two at all, he just left it up to them while releasing the shutter.

  • [top left] “Yeoljong Over Flowers / Hana Yori Yeoljong” [t/n: reference to the hit drama “Boys Over Flowers / Hana Yori Dango” … …]
  • [top right] A version of the photoshoot with Sungjong holding a teddy bear! And then Sungyeol, who had discovered the flower props, stuck one behind the reluctant Sungjong’s ear and looked very satisfied.
  • [mid right] L, who likes cameras, could not be satisfied by the digital camera he was provided with. “I want to use a professional camera like the photographers are using!” he kept saying, all the way until the end.

Photographed by Sungjong
Reserved(?!) maknae Sungjong was silently taking photos in front of his hyungs who were playing around.

  • [mid left] Hyper Sungyeol, who had opened his mouth so wide it looked like he would eat the microphone, and L, who was staring at him with a somewhat stunned(?!) expression, as if to say “You’re hopeless…”
  • [middle] In response to Sungjong’s request to “Hold those bottles!”, these two picked them up and, for some reason, both gave a sexy expression.

Photographed by Sungyeol
Among the 7 members, Sungyeol gave the most directions about this and that while taking the photos.

  • [lower left] “I’m good at taking them, aren’t I…” Sungyeol said, while pressuring Sungjong.
  • [lower middle] “Ordinary poses are boring!” Sungyeol kept pointing out problems, one after another. In the end there was a puzzling shot with their hands linked.

Hoya x Woohyun Photoshoot
By Sunggyu & Dongwoo


Photographed by Dongwoo

Because he was having so much fun no matter if he was taking pictures or having his picture taken, the people nearby couldn’t help but smile.

  • [top] Hoya and Woohyun took turns when they were the photographers, but Sunggyu and Dongwoo stood next to each other to take photos together. The people being photographed entered a state of confusion, which camera should we look at?!
  • [mid right] In response to Photographer Dongwoo’s order of “Do some kind of movement!”, while holding flowers and a microphone, they both extended their hands toward the camera. Indeed, it’s their 99.9% rate of synchronization!
  • [mid left] Since these two were taking photos at the same time, we have a lot of the same shots from different angles. Although the expressions are different, try comparing this with the shot by Sunggyu below!

Photographed by Sunggyu
Not using props, just the movements of these two, Sunggyu was able to capture their close relationship.

  • [mid right] While looking at the viewfinder, Dongwoo burst out laughing at the goofy expressions of Hoya and Woohyun!
  • [lower right] Hoya appeared to have a deep interest in the photos that Dongwoo took. Going by his expression, he seemed satisfied with the results.

Sunggyu x Dongwoo Photoshoot
By Hoya & Woohyun


Photographed by Woohyun

Woohyun was energetic when having his picture taken, and composed when taking the pictures. He prefers to have his picture taken?!

  • With a bottle of milk in one hand, these two got really into it. After taking the photo on the right [t/n: above the green bar], Woohyun looked at the photo he took and said, “Oh, ulzzangs,” appearing satisfied.

Photographed by Hoya
Out of the 7 members, the most active in moving around to take photos for us was Hoya. His photos were also unique.

  • [mid left] Without being directed, these two started to drink their milk while doing a love shot. Dongwoo, who was provided with fruit-flavored milk, drank every drop of it and said “This is delicious” in Japanese with a big smile.
  • [lower left] Just like a skilled photographer, Hoya took photos from various angles as they responded to his requests. Photographer Hoya was especially picky about the angle at which they were holding the milk bottles.
  • [lower right] Active Photographer Hoya!! Facing Hoya who was taking photos while lying down, these two decided on a pose. Thanks to the angle from below, a shot that normally can’t be seen was taken.

[TRANS] Sungjong | Infinite in HARU HANA Vol. 14 (October/November 2012) 

Recruited from Twitter!! Replies to the fans’ questions!

Q: I’m preparing for the entrance exam so I feel tired often, but would it be a good idea to eat lemon candy? What is your recommendation for lemon candy? (laugh)
A: When you have a lot of worries, lemon candy is the best. But it’s also not good to eat too many, so you should try to limit it to 3 pieces a day.
Q: In order to maintain your style, what do you keep in mind? 
A: Nothing special in terms of my shape, but for fashion, I’ll try not to wear too many colors together. Maybe 3, 4 colors at the most.
Q: Sungjong, if you could be leader for just one day, what would you do?
A: I think it’d be fun to be the leader. If I were pulling the hyungs along, wouldn’t I also gain a sense of responsibility? (Q: What would you want your hyungs to listen to you about?) There’s nothing like that… just being a maknae leader is fine.


Personal Question

Q: “She’s Back”, “TO-RA-WA”, a painful love is being sung about in these two songs. For the sake of regaining the love of your girlfriend, what kind of actions would you take?
A: I would sing a song to her from the bottom of my heart. 
Q: This is a question related to “TO-RA-WA”. If you could go back into the past for just one day, when and what kind of moment would you want to return to?
A: I want to return to when I was a middle school student. 
Q: If you were to sing one of Infinite’s songs as a solo at your concert, which song would you choose and how would you want to arrange and perform it?
A: “Only Tears” is a ballad that’s sentimental like it will bring tears to your eyes, but I want to sing it with all my heart to the fans. 
Q: Tell us what the hairstyle you like on girls is?
A: I like simple hairstyles. 
Q: For Sungjong, who is skilled at selcas. What is the secret to being good at taking selcas? What kind of situations do you take selcas in?
A: I don’t know if I’m good at taking selcas, but I guess the trick is not to lower the camera too much, and take it from above while showing the features you have the most confidence in. Taking selcas is for when you’re in a good mood, and when your skin is in good condition (laugh)

[TRANS] L | Infinite in HARU HANA Vol. 14 (October/November 2012) 

Recruited from Twitter!! Replies to the fans’ questions!

Q: I’ll consult with L about my worries (>_<) I’m weak in the morning, and no matter what I do I can’t get up early, so I don’t know what to do (sob) If L has a method for getting up in the morning, please share it(*^^*)
A: It’ll be good if you can set a goal that can only be done in the morning. For example, to watch the morning news, or to eat breakfast at a hotel. Or if there’s someone you like, to take the same bus as that person.
Q: L’s eyes are especially charming, but other than that, what do you think is charming about yourself? I personally think it’s that you’re slightly airheaded(?), but… (laugh)
A: The sense of liking black. Also, the ability to concentrate and focus on one thing.
Q: L, who has become an adult this year! Congratulations \(^o^)/ In what situation did it occur to you, “I’ve really become an adult”? 
A: When Coming-of-Age Day arrived, I began to feel that I’d become an adult in my own way. There was a feeling like, because I’m no longer a kid, I should take responsibility for my actions in everything I do from now on. 
Q: You often say that you like udon, but which kind of udon do you like? I really like udon too and I love kitsune udon and curry udon. 
A: Ebi furai [T/N: panko-fried shrimp] udon. I like the udon that the Japanese noodle shop owner brings out on a big plate. 
Q: L loves black, but on a date, what color clothing would you want the girl to wear?? 
A: A black dress with long wavy hair. Wearing black heels, and dressing chic, I’d like that.


Personal Question

Q: “She’s Back”, “TO-RA-WA”, a painful love is being sung about in these two songs. For the sake of regaining the love of your girlfriend, what kind of actions would you take?
A: I’d do everything it takes. Because I don’t like letting go. 
Q: This is a question related to “TO-RA-WA”. If you could go back into the past for just one day, when and what kind of moment would you want to return to?
A: I still have the regret of wanting to perform more coolly for our debut stage.
Q: If you were to sing one of Infinite’s songs as a solo at your concert, which song would you choose and how would you want to arrange and perform it?
A: I want to arrange “Real Story” for the guitar and perform it. Swee~tly, like I’m confessing.
Q: What was your impression of performing at the rock festival in Japan called “Summer Sonic”?
A: To be able to appear as the representative for Korea in Asia’s largest rock festival, it was really an honor. Since we prepared a lot for the event, I think we were able to give a good performance. 
Q: For L, who has the hobby of taking photos. Out of the photos you’ve recently taken, which photo is your favorite? If you could go on a photography trip, where would you go and what would you want to photograph?  
A: I went to a meadow in Gangwondo with my friends and took photos of the scenery. Wouldn’t I be discovered by the fans, you ask? I was completely undiscovered. If I were to go on a photography trip, I don’t choose between scenery or people when I take photos, so I want to take photos everywhere I go. If possible, I’d go to the sea… no, that’s not it. I want to take photos of Sungyeol when he’s about to fly his RC helicopter. When he’s about to fly the big helicopter that appeared in the “She’s Back” MV.

[TRANS] Sungyeol | Infinite in HARU HANA Vol. 14 (October/November 2012) 

Recruited from Twitter!! Replies to the fans’ questions!

Q: Sungyeol… what should I do to make my legs longer like yours?
A:It’s the result of drinking milk, playing basketball, and trying everything that’s good for growth. My parents are both smaller than me.
Q: I heard that you’ve been going to driving school, but did you get your license yet? What place do you want to go by car to the most? Will a girl be sitting next to you? (laugh)
A: The engine stalled during my road test, so I couldn’t get my license. Since I’m still scared, I’ve given up on my license for now.
Q: Do you have plans to get another piercing in the future? Do you have a favorite earring?
A: If I think it looks good, then any kind of design is fine. I just choose and wear the ones that I like.
Q: It was your birthday the other day, so what did you do that day? Also, did the members celebrate with you (^^)?
A: Because we had work, we didn’t do anything special, but I did get birthday wishes from the members. Although it seemed like the members were trying to prepare a surprise, I’m quick about that kind of thing, so in the end there wasn’t one (laugh)


Personal Question

Q: “She’s Back”, “TO-RA-WA”, a painful love is being sung about in these two songs. For the sake of regaining the love of your girlfriend, what kind of actions would you take?
A: For her heart that has already left, I would search for it while giving her time and waiting for her.
Q: This is a question related to “TO-RA-WA”. If you could go back into the past for just one day, when and what kind of moment would you want to return to?
A: I want to return to when we were recording, so I could do it over again perfectly.
Q: If you were to sing one of Infinite’s songs as a solo at your concert, which song would you choose and how would you want to arrange and perform it?
A: The bright song called “Entrust”, I’d like to do a refreshing cover of it.
Q: For Sungyeol, who has changed his hairstyle and gained muscle during his transformation into a man. Right now, what is the part you want to change the most, the figure you are striving toward?
A: Right now I’m losing muscle. When I looked into the mirror after gaining muscle, I realized that it didn’t suit my face. So then I was like, “let’s just stop” (laugh). As for the part I want to change, there isn’t anything that I especially want to. If I feel unsatisfied with something, I’m the type to take action right away in order to fix it.

[TRANS] Hoya | Infinite in HARU HANA Vol. 14 (October/November 2012) 

Recruited from Twitter!! Replies to the fans’ questions!

Q: When I sing Infinite’s songs at karaoke, the rap part is hard. Please tell me the key to doing it ♪
A: In order to get better at rap, the movement of your tongue is important. It’s hard to write it out, but try moving your tongue by saying “burururururu”. I always do tongue exercises before I rap. Since Infinite’s rap lyrics are personally written by Dongwoo-hyung and me, wouldn’t we be good at them since we know them so well? If we can understand the raps, then I think we’ll naturally be able to follow them. 
Q: Hoya-oppa is originally from Busan, but normally, does your Busan dialect come out? And have you ever made a mistake because of your dialect?
A: I was 19 years old when I left Busan for Seoul to become a trainee, so as expected, in the beginning my accent was terrible. The company said that I had to use standard Korean, and would correct me while scolding me. Because of those efforts, I really wanted to have a standard accent, and forgot almost all my dialect. However, recently I appeared in a drama that was set in Busan, so I had to use the dialect… Once again, it turned into a situation where I had to train my accent. My dialect had gotten rusty, but when I practiced it, my standard accent would get worse. It felt like there was nothing I could do about it (laugh)
Q: I love Hoya’s gentle singing voice! So, my question! Please tell us which member’s voice Hoya likes the best! Hoya, saranghae! Infinite, fighting! I’ll always support you!
A: I really like everyone’s voices. I can’t choose just one. The reason why is that each person has a unique tone color and aura, so it’s not because they’re the members, but because there’s something I like about each of them. I’m a fan of Infinite’s voice! And, I’m a fan of my own voice too (laugh) (We told him about the part of the tweet that said, “Hoya, saranghae! Infinite, fighting! I’ll always support you!”) I love you too!
Q: Please tell us about the reactions of the members to Hoya’s acting.
A: Actually, my character’s personality is different from mine, so the members appeared somewhat uncomfortable, like “it doesn’t seem like it’s Hoya”. They didn’t praise or point out anything in particular (laugh), but the members would all watch the drama together, and they told me it was an interesting drama.


Personal Question

Q: “She’s Back”, “TO-RA-WA”, a painful love is being sung about in these two songs. For the sake of regaining the love of your girlfriend, what kind of actions would you take?
A: Rather than chasing after her love, I’d become the kind of man that she would want to love, so that her love would return once again.
Q: This is a question related to “TO-RA-WA”. If you could go back into the past for just one day, when and what kind of moment would you want to return to?
A: 18 years old. I want to return to the time when I was dancing freely with my friends.
Q: Hoya, who’s appearing in a drama depicting the adolescence of being students. From Hoya’s own student days, what are some bittersweet memories and embarrassing memories that could only belong to a student?
A: During middle school, I once had an unrequited love even though we didn’t know each other. I secretly looked her up to find out her name, but it ended before I could even say it once. And this isn’t an embarrassing memory, but although I was rarely ever late for school, in my 2nd or 3rd year of middle school there was one time when I was late. That day was my birthday, and coincidentally, it was the day that all of the March birthdays would be celebrated. By the time I got to school, it was already over, and everything that was prepared for me had become useless. It was awkward. 
Q: If you were to sing one of Infinite’s songs as a solo at your concert, which song would you choose and how would you want to arrange and perform it?
A: I want to try doing a dance style version of “Time”.

[TRANS] Woohyun | Infinite in HARU HANA Vol. 14 (October/November 2012) 

Recruited from Twitter!! Replies to the fans’ questions!

Q: Who is a performer that you admire?
A: I like the singer Kim Bumsoo. I respect him because although he has real talent, he continues to work hard all the time, it’s amazing. The way he maintains a humble attitude that never changes is also amazing. I want to always learn from him.
Q: Is there a secret to successfully taking selcas?? In order to take them, do you practice~? And please, share your favorite pose~ ♡♡♡ Thank you very much!!
A: I search intently for the photogenic sides of myself, find an angle, try making a suitable expression, and as soon as I think “This is it!” I’ll take the selca.  For now, it’s fine to just try taking it and then choose your favorite. If you keep on taking them, they will naturally get better. My favorite pose is facing the camera at a 45 degree angle, with the feeling of giving a “chu~” kiss (laugh)
Q: I also want to do training to tone my body, so I would like to hear the training secrets of Woohyun who has magnificent abs (^^)!
A: Even if you don’t diet that much, it’ll be good to do 60 sit-ups during the day and at night (laugh). During the day, please do 60 reps of moving just your upper stomach a little. At night, to concentrate on the lower stomach, you should lift your legs while in a lying down position. Do this without skipping a single day and if you continue for 4 months to that extent, I think you’ll feel good.
Q: Before, Woohyun said that you would like noonas to love you… but, up to how much older is OK?
A: Age doesn’t matter~. 20 years older? Hmm, maybe up to 15 years older.  
  

Personal Question

Q: “She’s Back”, “TO-RA-WA”, a painful love is being sung about in these two songs. For the sake of regaining the love of your girlfriend, what kind of actions would you take?
A: I want to sing a love serenade for her to listen to.
Q: This is a question related to “TO-RA-WA”. If you could go back into the past for just one day, when and what kind of moment would you want to return to?
A: There are a lot of times that I want to return to and that I regret, but this moment right now is good.
Q: What was your impression of performing at the rock festival in Japan called “Summer Sonic”? Did you watch the performances of the other artists?
A:  It was really an honor and a good experience. In the waiting room, we played ping-pong with the other artists, but it’s too bad we weren’t able to take a picture together. I observed Green Day while they were playing ping-pong (laugh). We didn’t play them directly, but when we went against the team that Green Day was competing with, we won!
Q: If you were to sing one of Infinite’s songs as a solo at your concert, which song would you choose and how would you want to arrange and perform it?
A: While sitting on a chair under red lighting, I want to try singing “I Don’t Know” with a sexy feel. 
Q: For Woohyun, who’s good at cooking. If you were to cook a dish for Japanese fans, what would you make for them? Please also share the main feature of that dish. 
A: Kimchi jjigae! I would add a ton of red pepper to make it super spicy for them.
