— How about the food?
JINU: If we talk about Shizuoka, it must be Shizuoka Oden, right?
— You know about it well
YOON: This time, I can’t enjoy it because I don’t have time. But I ate it with my members when I visited Shizuoka on the last tour!
— What was the most delicious ingredient?
YOON: It is Daikon radish! It’s immerse in flavor and delicious ~
JINU: Of course it’s also because of the taste, but it’s also very interesting because the shop style, atmosphere, and the unique oden pot, etc, there are no such things in Korea.

YOON: Me too. Because it’s cold outside (laugh).
— What would you do at home?
MINO: I’d like to chillingly watch movie together while drinking warm oolong tea.
YOON: Cooking together is also nice. Because it’s cold outside, it will be bad if we catch a cold!

HOONY: I want to go to a winter resort for skiing or snowboarding! Hokkaido is nice. You can’t do this kind of thing in other season.
JINU: Hot springs? Things like open air baths and snow are beautiful, it would be nice. I’d like the two of us to spend time relaxing there…. Isn’t it like a dream?
— So romantic! What kind of girl’s fashion that you like to see her wear on such date?
MINO: I think a big muffler scarf that about surrounds your face would look cute! It looks stylish.
YOON: I understand a bit about what you mean. Just like an oversized outer and so on. The appearance of the girl inside it will make your heart flutter.
JINU: For me, down coats. The fluffy silhouette is cute.
— It seems everyone have a thing with oversized clothing fashion. How about HOONY?
HOONY: Masked style! (laughs)
— Eh? Mask?
HOONY: That’s right. I can only see her expression through her eyes. It’s easy to stare at each other and she won’t catch a cold!
— (Laugh). Please be serious!
HOONY: I like neat casual denim style (laugh).

MINO: (hitting his abdominal muscles) I have enough (laugh)! I want to release a solo album again”
YOON: JINU doesn’t have a driver’s license yet, should you take it?
