[Lyrics] Taemin – Flame of Love *With t/n

[Lyrics] Taemin – Flame of Love *With t/n

Your traces that almost seem within reach if I reached out my hands, they’re clouded by my tears
The setting sun and the rising moon miss each other like the two and call forth darkness

[the two = I’m not exactly sure who “the two” are | Miss Each other: as in physically ‘miss’ (pass by) each other, not in the emotional sense where you long for someone]

Slipping away from in between the fingers
Days of happiness turn into memories
I am still here left behind, unchanged

**Burning brightly crimson Flame of Love
Fragments of love soar above once again like fire sparks
Melting your heart, it will be kept aflame until then Flame of Love

No matter how brightly the stars shine, I’m reminded of you and I am only pained
If all things beautiful were to disappear, would I be able to forget?

Even if the song by the birds that set off in the morning when the moon dims brush against my ears
See I still remain trapped here by my love for you

[The original doesn’t actually specify which ‘love’ they’re talking about so it’s probably better to remain ambiguous ^^;; maybe “trapped here by love” would work? I think I saw juju’s translation say “captive of love” and I think that works better]

**(Repeat Chorus)

I hope that this undying flame can someday cast light on you gently… warmly
[The literal translation is “It will be great if….”]

**(Repeat Chorus)

**(Repeat Chorus)
It will be kept aflame until then Flame of Love

SHINee – Taemin, a collaboration with Mika Ninagawa. Intensified elegance and beauty

20170620-00000006-dal-000-2-viewIt was revealed on the 19th that Taemin (23) from the five member Korean boy group SHINee had collaborated with photographer Mika Ninagawa. Mika Ninagawa (44) photographed the visuals for his 2nd mini album as a solo artist, “Flame of Love” (July 18 release). To intensify his alluring quality(*), an offer was made to Mika Ninagawa who was known for her brilliantly colored photographs. Filmed in mid-April in Tokyo, arranging large amounts of flowers(**) – it expressed Ninagawa’s style of worldview.

Taemin, who immediately sold out his Nippon Budokan Solo concert (July 1, 2) commented, “It was a concept that expressed my strong points to its best and I could focus on just shooting,” and showed an expression of satisfaction/approval.

(*) elegance and beauty, seductiveness, bewitching quality etc (**) Fresh / real flowers

[Trans] 170414 “TAEMIN THE 1st STAGE Nippon Budokan” Application Information and Announcement

Announcement

It has been decided that Taemin’s first solo stage, “TAEMIN THE 1st STAGE Nippon Budokan” will be held!!
A year after his solo debut last July, his first SOLO STAGE will finally be held!
Taemin himself is very happy that he is able to stand on the stage of the historic Nippon Budokan!
The performance for last year’s title track “Sayonara Hitroi” is a given, but the production of new songs for the concert is currently underway! Let’s welcome together the moment of Taemin’s new start!

***News on Taemin’s Japanese Official HP

170414 A Message from Taemin (1:06)

Hello, members of SHINee World J, this is Taemin~
Yes. I have news to tell everyone today.
I’ve been wanting to tell you for a long time so I’ve been restraining myself but it was decided my first solo stage will be held on the 1st and 2nd of July~ Whoooo~ An applause~ He he
The venue will be… THE Budou-kan..![1]
Yes. Because I want to show an appearance that is different from SHINee’s Taemin so I’m giving it all my thought on what kind of stage I should make it.
I would be happy if I am able to welcome that time with many of you.
Also, to accompany[2] the concert, I am preparing a new album.
Going to / Staying in Japan more than the other members, I’ve secretly been preparing. Please look forward to how the album will turn out!
I think I will have more opportunities to meet everyone through various activities [in the future]. Please look forward to Taemin hereafter. I ask for your support~
Well then, this was Taemin.

Staffs: Taemin who is currently busying himself with preparation for the concert and the production of the new songs.
He’s very fired up!
We kindly ask for everyone’s continued support!

[1] You won’t believe changed to THE (nanto) : Similar to Why when used as an interjection. I think “Behold!” would be a close translation in some contexts. THE in this setence, means “none other than,” but word “nanto” really means You won’t believe! or can you believe it?
[2] To accompany: for the concert

170407 SHINee World 2017 ~FIVE~ Encore Talk: Taemin’s Secret [Audio by Black and White @ black718_angel]
170407 Osaka – What was Taemin hinting at? [Link]
Taemin: Yes! Aaah~ everyone of Osaka! We met again after a really short time, didn’t we. I’m really happy but let’s have fun again before long. And, ummm, I will do my best for the remaining concerts. And ummm, …… Ah, this is a secret… yes (yup). (66
Key: Ahahaha! What is this!
Onew: Eh?
Key: Wooooow
Minho: Uwaaaah
Onew: Ehhhhh???
Key: Uwah uwah uwah uwah uwoooi
Minho: Ummm, it’s a secret?
Key: Well, I will ask him [when we get back to] the dressing room
Taemin: Ok, Minho-saan
Fans: Ehhhhhhhhhh!!!
Onew: Could it be…
Taemin: No, you can’t
Onew: Were you going to say that you love them or something like that?
Taemin: I don’t really say phrases like “I love you”
Key: You said it just now though
Taemin: Ok, Thank you ~ Please come to to-…tomorrow’s concert…
Key: haha
Onew: What kind of confidence(*)
Jonghyun: There are no tickets! Now (laughs)
Taemin: Yes

(*)I’m not sure what he meant by this. A slightly more literal translation would be “of what confidence”  He might have meant “where did you get your confidence from?” but i’m really not sure

[TRANS] CanCam 2016 August Issue

[PG 223]

(From left in the photo) Key, Jonghyun, Minho, Taemin, Onew made their Korean debut as a 5 member group in 2008, and their Japanese debut in June 2011♥ Last year, they successfully completed their Tokyo Dome 2 Days performance, a dream of both the members’ and the fans’! In 2016, they held a tour for their 4th Japanese Album “DxDxD” that reached 1st placed on the Oricon chart, consisting of a 16 stop arena tour, and an additional 4 days at Kyocera and Tokyo Dome, totaling an attendance of 350,000♪ Their live performances —  their dancing always at 120% and exploding in harmony of the five members — is great enough for young Japanese artists to admire! Meanwhile, their closeness — their live MC interactions that are said to be a bit too intimate(laugh)!? — captivates fans from all over the world ♥ 

SHINee 5 Years Special Talk 

SHINee = SANDWICH!? 

—  The five’s charms that are enhanced by piling on top of each other —

Already 5 years since their Japanese Debut SHINee who’s deepened their bond with time, year by year, of course with each other but also with their fans.The colorful ingredients piled on top of each other like a “sandwich”They’ve been creating a unique* “flavor” that only SHINee can create.We’ve asked them* about the time leading up to the present and from now onward. 

*「唯一無二」Unique: could also mean unrivaled, unmatched, one and only
**「そんな彼ら」Them: a more literal translation is [such people]

[PG 224-225]

TALKING ABOUT 01

SHINee

Japanese Debut 5th Anniversary Inquisitive ♥ Talk

The five that continue to grow even after performing on their dream stage, Tokyo Dome! We we will talk frankly about their live performances and their ideal types*

Your second time performing at Tokyo Dome!
Slightly different feeling than the last time♥

CanCam: For last year’s Tokyo Dome performance, the five of you crying together left a strong impression!
Jonghyun: It was really fun. I really felt that I wanted to perform at that place again.
CanCam: Did anything change “before” and “after” doing a Dome performance?
Key: Since we really just returned to our normal daily lives the day after finishing our performance [at Tokyo Dome]… (laughs). I didn’t notice** any significant changes, but we (as five) were really thankful for being allowed to stand on such a large stage.
Minho: I felt this while doing this year’s tour but since we’ve experienced performing at a Dome once, we were more relaxed, right?
Taemin: Before, I thought I needed to be perfect on stage so I would feel down when I made mistakes, however small….During the concert, I used to constantly think about [the mistake I made], but recently, I am able to refresh/change my attitude quickly!
Onew: Really (Surprised)!? As for me, I am constantly bothered on stage, but the moment I get off stage, I forget (laughs)! Once I sleep, it’s all OK!
Key: For me, honestly, I can’t sleep on the day I make a mistake.
Minho: Not only on the day of the performance/live, but I’m the type to dwell on my mistakes until the next concert/performance. So I’m actually*** quite nervous until I perform the part I made a mistake on during the next live performance.
Jonghyun: For me, it depends on the kind of mistake**** and my conditions of that day. But I’m more nervous than everyone thinks on the day of a concert (laughs)! The fifteen seconds before the first line of the song? Maybe the five seconds before is the peak?
Taemin: I am also nervous during the intense dance parts, around “Everybody” for this tour. I am always scared!

*理想の女の子 Ideal types: the literal translation is {ideal girls}
**大きく変わった{感覚}はなかった Notice: the literal translation is {Sense of} “I didn’t have a sense of any significant changes”
***内心 actually: literal translation is {at heart}
**** 失敗した内容 kind of mistake: literal translation is {content of the mistake}

Chattering* constantly on stage♥
[We’re] constantly healed by their atmosphere!

CanCam: By the way, you five have a lot of skinship during lives but whose [shoulder] is the most “comfortable shoulder to place your head on”?
Jonghyun: Eh (Surprised)!? I don’t do things like that (feign ignorance with a cute expression)!
Minho: You do (laughs)** For me, it’s Jonghyun-kun’s shoulders!
Key: Me too! The height is just about right (laughs)!
Taemin, For me, Onew-san is comfortable!
Onew: Me too! It’s Taemin-kun~♪
CanCam: Then, lesser known*** aspects of the members that you find cool?
Onew: Taemin-kun played the piano for my last year’s Tokyo Dome solo stage but his [side] profile at the time was….♥really handsome [ikemen] (laugh)!
Taemin: That’s too specific (acts a bit shy).  As for Minho-kun, Manager-san showed me a picture he took with his phone and he was handsome**** (laughs)!
Minho: This is embarrassing…..,which reminds me…(when) I heard Key-kun reciting his lines at the hotel before! I was a bit moved!
Key: Eh~ (Surprised & flustered)!! You can hear it!? Um…for Jonghyun…let’s see…how he’s shameless***** (laughs).
Jonghyun: That’s my line! Onew-kun’s cool aspects are….
Onew: Of course there is one right? Right?
Jonghyun: (laughs)! There is! There is! When you’re singing ballad at the end of lives!

*わちゃわちゃ Chattering: lively, cheerful, but somewhat messy?
** してるよ(笑)! You do!: It’s ambiguous whether he meant “I do!” or “You (Jonghyun) do!” because the original text in Japanese lacks a subject
*** 超マニアックな lesser known: The literal translation is {super-maniac}, but its meant to ask for cool aspects of the members that no one else other than the members or whoever is answering [hence only a “maniac” (geek/otaku) of the said subject] would know about.
**** それがかっこよかった he was handsome: the literal translation is {that/it was cool} but I made the assumption that Taemin was talking about Minho in the photo and not the photo itself.
***** 図々しい Shameless: can be used to describe people that ask for a lot without intending to give much in return = isn’t really affected by how he might be troubling others…

“For the 5 years of SHINee, we were always together with everyone”

“Thank you♥ Together from now onward as well”
[PG 226]

Their newest song “Because of You”★
A certain member is flooded with complaints…!?

CanCam: Moments when you thought ‘because of you’?
Onew: I haven’t been able to sleep enough recently because of key-kun (laughs)! Because he practices his lines loudly in the hotel room next to [mine]; it was loud I couldn’t sleep!
Key: Please stop joking~! Liar~! I’m not being that loud (laughs)!
Minho: No no! I also heard it.
Key: Eh~! I’m pretty sure Manager-san was in the room next to mine.
Minho: Nope! I was next to Key-kun! (*They continued to argue)
Taemin: Um….Isn’t there anything else (laugh)!?
Minho: There is! Recently, Jonghyun-kun is too cute that I’m happy everyday♥
Key: That’s not a complaint at all (laughs)!
Minho: The expressions he makes casually, like when he goes “nnnh~!?” is cute so I’m kind of troubled!

Their true thoughts explode★

“This much is NG”-List that they would like to ask of girls

CanCam: Then, what kind of girlfriend will make you think – I will go crazy ‘because of you’! -?
Jonghyun: A person who borrows [asks for] money from me is troublesome (laughs)! It’s troublesome so I have to break up!
Onew: (laughs)! For me, someone who eats more than I do! It’s cute when [they] eat a lot, but if [they] eat more than I do, I would be worried [they] would end up with health problems.
Key: That’s trouble (laughs)! As for me, on the other hand, someone who doesn’t eat! I don’t know what to do with a person who doesn’t eat!
Onew: a light eater and someone who over-drinks and overeats are…..dangerous(laughs)!
Taemin: hmmm….I wonder what it is for me…(thinks hard/has a hard time) I guess I can’t handle someone who curses?
Minho: I can’t handle that either!
Onew/Jonghyun/Key:  Me too (neither)!
Minho: For me, someone who drinks more than I do!
Jonghyun: Also, someone who can play soccer better than Minho-kun is a no right (laughs)?
Minho: Ah~that’s also a no! Because it’ll hurt my pride (laughs)!
Taemin: You’ll lose heart for sure (laughs)*.

* 間違いなく凹んじゃうね(笑)。You’ll lose heart [feel down/dejected] for sure (laughs)*: The sentence lacks a subject so he could be 1)referring to Minho specifically or 2) generalizing that such situation will make guys (including himself) loose heart as well. My first guess is the 1st option.

TALKING ABOUT 02
ONE for ONE
Another Story of Us that Make Up SHINee

TAEMIN X VOCAL
“I learned to sing up to C#, I became confident in my vocal range”

Q. When compared to your debut days, you’ve made remarkable vocal improvements as well but did you notice any changes? (have you felt the results?)
A. Recently, I feel like the key for my parts have gotten higher (laughs). I started to to think that I can stably vocalize at a higher register since 2 years ago, I think? Until then my limit was at around C but with practice I learned to sing up to around C#.
Q. In between Solo and SHINee’s dance, what kind of changes do you make?
A. When [performing as] SHINee, team work is important. I think about how the five [of us] appear [on stage], in a way, there are times when I save [my energy]. On the other hand, as a solo, I have to engage/captivate the audience by myself so I express [myself] while calculating where to release (explode) my energy.

JONGHYUN X WORD
“Recently, I’ve been writing (a) novel(s) about women and fragrances”

Q. Novels, lyrics and such, [we] heard you have an obsession with “words (language)”!
A. “I don’t recommend going to the ocean to search for treasures like a pirate. Because if [you] look at the sky, there is that. (Please) look at the sky a lot more than the ocean! Because you are in the sky” I wrote this in the memo with “Aurora” as a theme.
Q. If you were to write a novel or a poetry book on “fragrance” right now?
A. I’ll choose the warm and aromatic musk! Its a fragrance that I’ve liked for about 5 years, I have candles and perfumes in my room. In the (exact) novel I am writing right now, a woman is the protagonist and the story begins with the smell of body cream.

His third solo album is now on sale in Korea!
His 1st Full Album “She Is” is sweeping over Korea’s music charts! Surprised by by his talent as a lyricist and composer that is just a bit different from when he is [promoting as] SHINee

ONEW X VOICE
“I hydrate myself with plenty! of water before and after live performances”

Q.How do you maintain your throat condition on the day of a live performance?
A. I drink lots of water! Before the (live) performance. I don’t really do anything special. In the past, right after I had my vocal cord surgery I couldn’t sing as I wanted, but I’m [good] as ever recently! (I’ve returned to my former state)
Q. At Tokyo Dome, you sang the legendary opera once again but why did you think about performing the song again?
A. (He sang Opera Turandot’s Nessun Dorma at his first Korean concert in 2011). I wanted (to try) singing at a Dome as well. I deliberately decided on the same song. I wonder how it was (acts shy)?
Q. During last year’s Dome, you sang Hideaki Tokunaga’s Rainy Blue with Taemin playing the piano, do you have anyone else whose voice interests you in Japan?
A. Oda Kazumasa-san! I’ve always liked his voice…♪

KEY X FASHION
“It was actually a secret at first that I was going to be in charge of  the live outfits even to the members”

Q.For this tour, you were in charge of all the outfit designs! Which one is your favorite?
A. At first, I didn’t plan on announcing that I was doing the outfit direction. I wondered how far I could go not as “SHINee’s Key” but as “Kim Kibum” who just likes fashion, so I secretly went to give a presentation to the people in charge of the company. For this [tour], my favorite is the patterned suits for the opening I wanted to make flamboyant outfits without using the live (concert) outfit staples that use glitter/sparkling materials, [so] I picked patterns that suited their character and taste.
Q. Anything you regret?
A. Actually, I wanted to ask (tell) the members “Can you also try wearing a more fresh outfit?”….I couldn’t say that this time (laughs). Of course I know their preferences…I am secretly thinking of asking (telling) [them] next time.

MINHO X TALK
“We’ve never had a meal with just the five of us after a live (concert) so I would like to!”

Q. Always smiling, you are called the “God of Fanservice” from fans, but do you ever feel down?
A. Wow, I am called the “God of Fanservice” (laughs)! I’m happy that fans think [of me] that way ♪ Of course there are times when its hard, but I try to think positively.
Q. Recently, what kind of incident made you want to put on a smug face in spite of yourself?
A. Was there ~ (Thinking)? (Jonghyun: just now, you had a “smug face” while shooting! while holding a sandwich
♪) You’re watching~ (laughs)
Q. With Minho-san as the planner, [what would you plan] if you were to go out with your members?
A. Since it’s been getting hot, I would go on a drive to a cool (refreshing) beach (ocean) ♪ I will drive, and Onew-san who is reliable and a good driver will sit in  the passenger seat! The other three…they’re noisy so [they’ll sit] in the back (laughs).
