WINNER’S FACE

Their debut album ranked 2nd on the Oricon chart and this month we’re going to inspect their personalities. So we have asked the different members to answer the question about each other (but sometimes the person itself answers as well).

Kim Jinwoo:

First impression?

Mino: This guy is an angel.
Seungyoon: He’s so pretty…

What’s his character within the group?:

Mino: The airhead, a natural airhead.
Seungyoon: If he were to be on a variety show, he’d be the one to create the most laughter.

What you do like about him?:

Seungyoon: He knows how to keep secrets.
Jinwoo: If I have promised not to tell, I’ll take the secret with me to the grave.

What’s his weakness?

Mino: Aohige* (T/N: this is an expression used in Kabuki, where you use blue eyebrow pencil to indicate that a character has shaved his cheeks)
Seungyoon: He means that it grows really fast, his facial hair.
Mino: Also he gets lost easily, this guy is hopeless with directions.

Please share a secret only the members know.

Hoon: He’s addicted to online games, and he owned characters that cost a lot of money
Jinwoo: I’ve quit now!

Something the other members can’t beat him in?

Mino: His looks
Seungyoon: His reactions are always the biggest. Even if it’s something that’s not funny what so ever.
Mino: Could you show us Jinwoo?
Jinwoo: (Laughs and claps his hands loudly)…Like this

Comment:

Hoon: Jinwoo was a trainee for the longest period of time within the group, he went through a lot of hardships. But we’ve debuted now and only good things are ahead of us!

Lee  Seunghoon

First impression?

Jinwoo: He’s our savior.
Seungyoon: When we were trainees we had no one in our team that could choreograph, and that’s when they added Seunghoon to our team.

What’s his character within the group?:

Hoon: I am the choreographer.

What you do like about him?:

Jinwoo: He has a big heart.
Mino: He’s very considerate and takes good care of people.

What’s his weakness?

Seungyoon: He’s very slow, and he doesn’t like to hurry. Even if we tell him to hurry up he won’t respond to it. He always says “Please wait I have to use the bathroom”
Mino: Toilet boy.
Hoon: Aw, come on guys. Don’t say that…. I’m an idol, idol!

Please share a secret only the members know.

Mino: He’s used to be a vocalist before becoming a rapper so he’s actually a very good singer!
Seungyoon: He’s messy. He leaves clothes on the floor and won’t pick them up.

Something the other members can’t beat him in?

Seungyoon: Dancing.
Mino: His freestyle is amazing. He can dance to any type of music.

Comment:

Seungyoon: Thank you for becoming WINNER’s Seunghoon.

Song Minho:

First impression?

Seungyoon: His skin is dark.
Jinwoo: He looked like he’d be a strong fighter.

What’s his character within the group?

Seungyoon: The stupid one, but in a cute way! He’s very playful.

What you do like about him?

Seungyoon: He’s always a lot of fun to be around.
Hoon: That he’s always cheerful, he’s like a happy pill.
Jinwoo: Being with him always puts me in a good mood, also he has a nice personality.

What’s his weakness?

Seungyoon: He’s pretty stupid, he forgets things quickly.
Hoon: Like when we have a schedule and such…

Please share a secret only the members know.

Seungyoon: He’s actually really bad at English. He can’t speak it at all. His pronunciation is only good in songs.

Something the other members can’t beat him in?

Seungyoon: His tanned skin. 
– Jinwoo:
(laughs)
Hoon: His confidence on stage.

Comment:

Seungyoon: Thank you for becoming WINNER’s rapper, I love you

Nam Taehyun

First impression?

Hoon: YG chose him because of his face! No but he was really that cool.
Mino: He felt like a little bro to me from the first time I met him.
Jinwoo: When I met him he was still looking like a little kid. He was cute.
Seungyoon: He’s an annoying little brother, but he’s a good member.

What’s his character within the group?:

Hoon: He doesn’t really speak much on stage, so I guess he’s the cool character.

What you do like about him?:

Seungyoon: He’s sensitive. Also he has a fascinating sense of artistry, and culture and fashion.

What’s his weakness?

Mino: His mood swings.
Seungyoon: His sleeping habits are awful.
Mino: His bed broke, it’s that bad.
Seungyoon: We all own the same type of beds but only Taehyun’s ended up like that…

Something the other members can’t beat him in?

Seungyoon: His eyebrows. And that he could probably suit any hairstyle.
Mino: That he has a lot of charming sides to him.

Comment:

Mino: I love you!
Taehyun: Me too! (T/N: He actually said this in English)

Kang Seungyoon

First impression?

Mino: That he’s nice. When I first came to YG he took care of me.

What’s his character within the group?

Hoon: If I were to compare it soccer he’d be the center midfielder. He has the most experience in this field, he has the ability to make decisions that benefit the group, and he’s also the mood maker.
Mino: He’s like a mom, he nags a lot.

What you do like about him?

Taehyun:: He’s strong and powerful.
Hoon: That he’s a mood maker, and that he’s able to draw people’s attention while on stage, or through the screen.

What’s his weakness?

Hoon: He scolds us too much.

Please share a secret only the members know.

Hoon: He always pay for us when we go out.
Mino: He sleeps a lot, he’s good at sleeping, lol.

Something the other members can’t beat him in?

Hoon: His ability to draw people’s attention to him while on stage, as I mentioned earlier. And the strength of his voice, plus his vocalization and pronunciation are really clear.

Comment:

Hoon: Thank you for being our leader and always leading us!

WINNER 1st JAPAN TOUR 2014
9/11 @ Zepp Tokyo

Today is the first day of their Japanese concert tour. The audience that has gathered in their concert venue are filled with excitement. As the lights go out the members enter one by one as if they are holding in a fashion show. They open with GO UP – a song that holds a lot of meaning to the members. It’s the perfect opening act. After two songs, they introduce themselves, followed by mid-tempo songs like TONIGHT and DIFFERENT where you get to just lean back and take in the vocal line’s singing voices. Then we have a performances by Mino (solo – I’M HIM), Mino & Seungyoon, Mino & Seunghoon & Jinwoo, Taehyun (solo – CONFESSION), Taehyun & Seungyoon. All the stages carefully show the different sides of the members and display their charms to the fullest. The Mino/Seunghoon/Jinwoo team covered GD&TOP’s OH YEAH where Jinwoo cross-dressed as 2NE1’s BOM. The 5 of them covered LA LA LA LOVE SONG. The second half starts with COLOR RING followed by BUT and EMPTY. The encore opens with JUST ANOTHER BOY, and an MC with Mino’s beat box and an improvised rap done by the members, then they sing LOVE IS A LIE for the second time and GO UP where the members exchanged their parts with each other.
