WORK » Q1. The one with the highest tension after lives? YJ: Probably Yongguk-san? It’s a surprise right (laughs)! He doesn’t speak that much usually, but he’s really noisy after a live! DH: I think it’s Youngjae? He really talks a lot! JU: I think so too…! YJ: Eh!? Is that so (laughs).
PRIVATE » Q2. The member who talks the most when moving between schedules? YJ: Mainly… Himchan-san (laughs)! He gets excited with Daehyun, and then including me, the noise just grows. DH: To the point that no one can stop us! YJ: Although Jongup can sleep deeply through those sorts of situations (laughs). Q3. The one with the worst sleeping habits? YJ: Himchan-san talks a lot when he’s awake, but he also talks when he’s asleep (laughs)! Recently, I slept with Yongguk-san in his room, and from the next room, I heard the presumably-asleep Himchan-san sleep talking… That’s noise disturbance!
“A surprise during a winter date? How about buying a hot coffee and giving it to her~♥” – Youngjae Q4.Who would seem to get the most jealous if you got a girlfriend? YJ: I think Himchan-san.

WORK » Q1.The one who changed the most after debuting? JU: Daehyun-san! His singing… DH: What about my singing!?

JU: Me and Zelo, the maknaes learn things quickly! But I’m slow at learning dances… The one with a good memory is Himchan-san. He can remember the faces of the staff from photoshoots, and the buildings that we pass momentarily in the car. It’s an amazing memorising power!
PRIVATE » Q3.The slowest member at packing? JU: Me? I’m the type to go at 25 minutes if we’re going to meet up in 30 minutes, and then end up arriving in 35 minutes (laughs). YJ: Truly the “oh right, there was an agreement!” type (bursts out laughing)! The quick member is… Daehyun. On the opposite, he’s the type to arrive 10 minutes before the promised time, so he’s prepared all-round and arrived earlier than anyone else (laughs). JU: He really is quick!

PRIVATE » Q2.The one who’s worst at cooking? HC: Zelo and Youngjae. In the past, I asked Zelo to make the rice, and it turned out to be some colour I’d never seen… How did it turn out like that when all you need to do is turn on the switch? ZL: Eh? I don’t remember (laughs)! Q3. The one quickest at replying to SNS? HC: It’s a 6-person group chat, yet it’s a 3-person conversation between Youngjae, me and Daehyun (laughs). The slow one is Yongguk. He makes me/us wait soooooo long and yet his reply is a single word! Even though he’s definitely been reading! YG: I am reading, but I thought it’s fine if we talk when we meet.
“I want to fulfil all my girlfriend’s wishes! Whether it’s shopping or going on a date, allll of it♥” – Himchan Q4.Who would seem to get the most jealous if you got a girlfriend? HC: Youngjae!

PRIVATE » Q2. The cleanest one is? DH: Yongguk-san. Me and Zelo’s room are clean too! The messy one is Himchan-san and Jongup’s room (laughs). They have a habit of being suspicious of the other members if chargers are missing from that room (bursts out laughing)! They’ve only cleaned up when they moved in, and because the two of them are always asleep, they’ll never be able to clean up.
“Since it’s winter, I want to knit handmade scarves or gloves for her~♥“ – Daehyun Q3. Who would seem to get the most jealous if you got a girlfriend? DH: Probably me (laughs)! If my girlfriend didn’t’ tell me and went to eat dinner with a male friend? I would go directly to her and look her in the eye and ask her “where did you go yesterday” like a man. However, if it was Youngjae, he wouldn’t even be able to ask in a roundabout way like “yesterday…”, and just say “nope, it’s nothing” (laughs)! YJ: I will get nervous and become unable to ask~ Q4. If you get a girlfriend, who would you tell first? DH: I won’t tell anyone! (※Whilst being booed loudly, Youngjae stared straight at him from his side) DH: I got it, I’ll tell.

(laughs) (H: I don’t do that in hotels right?) Now…that room is especially loud. (H: It’s difficult for me!

YG: Daehyun or Youngjae or Zelo. Q4: Who would have the best advice when getting a girlfriend? YG: Everyone. Gathering together with "Everyone come here.
