Changmin: The past 5 years of our activities in Japan are all recorded in this album. The members trying their very best, and the fans giving their support... Everytime I listen to these songs, a lot of memories come to mind. This is a compilation of best works that we are most confident of.

Jejung: I can confidently say that this is our best album! Up until now, we've been working in Japan for 5 years, and in between, it'
s a fact that Tohoshinki has grown, and this growth is all thanks to the support of our fans. Everyone, thank you so much.

Yuchun: Through this album, we can re-live all the past activities that we did, so it's an album that is very important to us. Our hearts are filled with all these precious memories and emotions. These 5 years passed by in a flash, yet it was also fulfilling. I hope that our fans can listen to this album.

Junsu: This is Tohoshinki's first best album. It is a "5 years of memories" compilation of Tohoshinki's lives in Japan. I hope that the people who listen to this album will feel Tohoshinki's growth, as well as the message that we are trying to send to everyone.

Q. What fetish do you have when it comes to girls?
Eyes. When I talk to anyone, I will always look at that person's eyes. I'm not sure what makes me go "Her eyes are pretty", but I'll feel it when her eyes are conveying pretty feelings.

Hideaki Tokunaga's "Rainy Blue" and James Ingram's "Just Once".

Q. If you didn't enter the entertainment industy, what do you think you'd be?
My childhood dream, probably a prosecutor.

Usually I don't like to have long phone conversations or send long text messages, but if she was feeling down, I'd do my best to do it.

Before we came to Japan this time, I wanted to compose a song, but I started drinking halfway through... In the end, I got dead drunk and didn't complete the song... and just came to Japan like that.

Q. The number one thing that made you really happy?
It was when I went drinking like I mentioned in Q88 (T/N: the question above), 10 of us male friends got together. As we usually spend the end of the year in Japan, I was really happy to be able to attend a bōnenkai in Korea.

Q. What is the thing that makes you happy when you do it?
When I have a week's holiday and I spend all of it at home. I'll sit on the sofa and watch TV and movies, drink alcohol... When I'm doing nothing and I can completely relax, that makes me happy.

Q. If you had to describe yourself in one sentence?
Yes~ I can use any example? The falling "rain", which can be weak yet strong.

Q. A recommended spot in Korea for tourists?
Korea's famous river, the Han River.

Because I always have to consider our schedule and it limits our time spent eating, so if that happened, I would go and eat without any worries.

Q. If you had to pick something as your "treasure"?

Q. What do you think accounts for the "loveable" factor of Japanese females? Also, the "loveable" factor for Korean females?
I think Japanese girls are cute with their curly curls. On the other hand, Korean girls have really lustrous black hair, and I think it's pretty.

Unfortunately, I bought it! (laugh) I've been studying the use of colours for my own fashion.
