Q: What you can tell us about MONA LISA – Japanese Version - ?
G.O: Although this will be the first time we will actually promote a japanese version of a korean song the melody is great and you can relate to someone through this song. When we released the original version in Korea the response was great and not only in our country, but also aboard so we’re very glad to lauch a japanese version.
Cheondung: I’m very happy with the japanese lyrics, so I practiced very hard my pronunciation. I was able to learn it more quickly than I thought and I hope I can transmit well the feelings of such great lyrics.
Seungho: At first we thought about translate the exact same content of the Korean lyrics or some that would fit the Korean word pronunciation, but using japanese lyrics we thought that we needed to incorporate the unique sensibility Japan has so we could fit it nicely on our style. Japanese people, our pronunciation might not be perfect, but please, watch warmly the results that practice efforts brought to us and wish us good luck!
Q: For those who don’t know MBLAQ that well, please, introduce the group.
Joon: We are a sexy group! (The translator said that with such a shy smile while speaking it in japanese that it brought laughs even to the MC and Joon quickly apologize for making her uncomfortable) I’m sorry, we’re all very friendly and funny, but we do take our charisma seriously on stage therefore we’re a sexy group.
Mir: We have the best performances, we are all handome and we’re a flawless group, perfect in everything. (Laughs)
Seungho: It’s just like they said. (Laughs)

Joon: I felt that it will be one of the most dificult shooting I will have, I’ve not started to shooting yet, but you have my word that I will do my best.
Q: To Seungho, please sing a song from the musical.
Seungho: I heard that people say that you have to see the whole musical first, because the feeling will only be transmited if you listen to everyone before. So I don’t have to sing now? (Lauhgs, he ended up singing one line of the song with a serious look as if he was acting.)
Q: To G.O, how was like to have a Kiss scene in the musical?
