L (interviewer) today I realised this again while shooting since I was observing up close, it’s because (you) two members have been working alongside each other for a long time of 15 years. (Your) teamwork is really good.
Y when I am going through a tough time, if I get asked “yah, why is your expression like that? What happened?”, I would feel uncomfortable. Instead, I am more at ease laughing and joking around together like normal. Changmin is a friend that gives that kind of comfort. Whether during happy or sad times, he has remained constantly by my side. So I am always thankful.
C I also think the same way. In reality, our characters, dispositions, tastes are of different styles. This is something that all our long-time fans know about (laughs). Simply speaking, for example, I am the kind that is comfortable with being by myself but on the other hand, Yunho hyung prefers communicating with other people. Even so, I think the way we are able to get along well without misunderstandings or arguments is because we acknowledge and respect each other’s differences. I feel reassured because I have hyung.
