2PM’s Taecyeon interview from Dankook University brochure

What is campus life of busy celebs like? Nowadays, more and more celebs are seeking to balance their work with their study. Taecyeon of 2PM, current junior business major at Dankook University(abv.Dan U), is of them. Taecyeon suddenly excuses himself from the busy preparation site of an upcoming gig. We meet him in a lecture room at Dan U. He has attended school today to take a business strategy exam. While he was walking towards the lecture room after getting off from the vehicle, Taecyeon’s eyes were fixed on his revision notes all the time. When the exam session was over, we got a chance to sit down with Taecyeon to have a chat about his campus life.

Q. Have you studied enough for the exam? Were you nervous?

택: To tell the truth, I haven’t. I gave my best, though. Since I’m not able to attend the school that often, I tend to miss most of the classes. However, I try to catch up with my studies with the aid of the e-learning campus. Exams always makes me nervous, whether I’ve studied a lot or not.

Q. Do you have any regret regarding your school life?

택: Being a celeb and a student at the same time is really tough. Thanks to my busy work schedules, I don’t get to neither enjoy the college life much nor make lots of friends at school. I wish I had a friend at school that knows a lot about the school and many good eateries around the campus, so we can hang together at the campus, enjoying freedom. Also, I’d like to have some lovely junior students of my own. It feels really nice to be greeted with a hello from juniors at school. I think it’s very cute. I’d give campus love a shot, but I don’t know if I’d be able to maintain it. LOL

Q. You recently shot a Dan U promo video, how was the shooting?

택: Last August, I shot a promo video with some senior and junior students. Even though it felt a bit strange to shoot something alone without other 2PM members, it was still fun. The students that shoot the video with me made me feel at ease, so the shooting went well. I had to take a two year leave of absence from school for professional reasons, thus it was good to spend some time with my Dan U friends before returning to school.

Q. What have you been up to lately?

택: I’m spending much of the time abroad these days. I’ve been going on the Asia tour and shooting Japanese drama, “99 Days of My Star and Me.” However, I’m planning to attend classes and hang around with my friends at the campus when I’m free of schedule.

Last August, Ok Taecyeon made his cameo appearance in the Dan U promo video shot at the campus. Taecyeon, assuming the role of the mood-maker, openly chatted with and took pictures with other undergraduate students at the filming set. He also has agreed to appear and sing in the promo music video that is currently in production. Despite his busy schedules, Taecyeon attends school when he doesn’t have any schedule. One could learn a thing or two from his professionalism and mentality of not neglecting his duty as a student.

SHINee celebrates the release of their Barcelona travel book!

On December 13th, SHINee‘s Onew, Key, and Taemin held a book release conference for their Barcelona travel book, ‘Children of the Sun‘.

The book is a photo essay documenting the trio’s experience during their week-long stay in Barcelona, Spain. It features journal-like entries from the members as they delve into personal stories and thoughts. As of the 13th, the book ranked in the top 10 bestsellers list.

At the press conference, the boys began, “We wrote down what we felt and experienced together in a diary format that we think many people will be able to connect to. We experienced a lot of things and felt a lot of passion as we learned about the culture of another country; it was also an opportunity for us to see a reflection of ourselves off stage.”

When asked why they chose Barcelona, they replied, “It was our first break in a while, and we wanted to choose a location far away. All three of us were immediately attracted to Barcelona. We ate and hung out in the streets as much as we could, and we hope that more people visit Barcelona. For those that can’t, we hope that they’ll indirectly experience the joy through our book.”

Key revealed, “Ever since our debut, I wanted to show this particular side of us. I think it’s a book that aptly captures our natural side off stage. My mom bought about 40 copies for herself to share with her friends. I think it is a fun book, and I hope that people will take an interest in it.”

The boys also touched on some habits they discovered about one another. Onew began, “Key has always liked shopping, so while on vacation, he was walking around everywhere, without even a minute of rest. Although we’ve promoted together for such a long time, the three of us had different things we wanted to do. For example, I had a hard time understanding why Taemin was so adamant about buying a soccer uniform.”

He continued, “We had some free time in the middle of our vacation, and Key went shopping while Taemin went to swim. All three of us have very different hobbies.”

Key added, “I saw Onew hyung cooking and felt like I discovered a new side to him. I was surprised to see him cook, but even more surprised with the taste. Why? Because I chewed on raw rice when I tasted his dish.”

it's like they are gonna kiss!! ><
