[INTERVIEW] 120502 My name is Suho, D.O.
My name is Suho. My real name is Kim Junmyeon.
I was born on May 22nd, 1991, and I have a brother four years older than me.
The biggest form of rebellion I’ve ever committed thus far is when I fought with my brother in junior high. I got permission from my parents to spend the night at a sauna. I know that we fought over something really small, but I don’t remember it anymore. (Sehun: That’s so rebellious. / Kai: How could you sleep on your own?)
My skin is on the white side. Because of that, my eyebrows look a lot stronger and my double eyelids make me look young for my age. (Baekhyun: How can your eyebrows look strong?) If Kai’s double eyelids are considered charismatic, mine look as if they could embrace anything.
The supernatural ability that I’m most envious of is Kai’s teleportation skills, Lu Han’s psychokinesis, and Tao’s time control. I can control water, which I also think is quite cool.
As the leader, I keep my dongsengs in check by buying them a lot of delicious food. They come together quite nicely when I buy them chicken or Outback. Every Saturday, I make the group have a family meeting and tell them to say nice things about each other. We also talk about things we were upset about and try to work them out. In the end, we finish it off by shouting, “Let’s love!”
TVXQ’s Yunho hyung gives me a lot of advice. He told me not to reprimand the members for little things and to console them when they make mistakes by helping them summon the bravery to do better. In contrast, he told me to be firm and reprimand them harshly when they make mistakes regarding respect or manners. Super Junior’s Leeteuk hyung advised us to always stay together.
I studied really hard during my days as a student. I was the class president in elementary school and vice-chairman of the student body. I was also vice-chairman in junior high school but I stopped after I got cast in the company because it felt too pressuring. I didn’t rely on earning votes through my looks or anything. I think they voted for me because I was a model student, haha.
If we were to star in a real variety show, I think I’d do the best because the other members are really shy, hahaha. I’m the caring type so I’d just embrace everyone.
My name is D.O. My real name is Do Kyungsoo.
I was born on January 12th, 1993, and I have a brother older than me by three years.
A unique characteristic of mine is that the whites of my eyes are bigger than my pupils. Because of that, my fans nicknamed me, ‘Rich in Eye Whites’. Anyway, if it’s hard for you to distinguish us, just know that the member with a lot of eye whites is D.O.
Despite that Yunho hyung had just finished his Tokyo Dome concert, he called us after our first broadcast on SBS’s ‘Inkigayo’. He monitored each one of us and we listened to his advice with the cell phone on speaker mode. For now, we need advice on our stage performance rather than for variety programs.
I was a quiet student in school. I didn’t want people to know that I was training at SM so I didn’t tell anybody. I just spent my high school years quietly and then graduated.
My voice imitation of senior Oh Kwang Rok on MBC Music’s ‘Show Champion’ was not something that I had practiced. I always joked around by copying him and it just naturally became my personal talent. The member that actually has a lot of hidden talents is Baekhyun.
I honestly have no idea what I meant by the ‘What Play’ that’s written on my elementary school graduation picture. It must’ve been a popular phrase back then, but… Why would I have written that as my special talent?
Since elementary school, I’ve always loved singing or listening to music. I always participated in singing competitions in high school. I was cast by SM while on my way out from winning an award at a competition. I didn’t know what type of company SM was at the time so I had a hard time believing them. I remember thinking, “Is this real? What is this?”
When I made a comment mistake on our debut stage, I wasn’t thinking anything in particular. If I said that I did well during the rehearsal… would you believe me? I kept thinking that it was a live broadcast and repeated to myself, “Majestic, majestic, majestic…” I wasn’t able to look at the camera so when it came to my turn, all of the words in my head just disappeared. (Sehun: They were deleted.) I could only remember the first letter of the word so I instead said, ‘grand orchestra’. I was so out of it then that I didn’t even know I had used that word. I never want to see that broadcast again (sigh).
