[Trans/Interview/Scans] CD&DL Data July-August Issue Interview (cr: TVXQDrip) OCEAN has newly been added to your list of summer songs. It felt refreshing to hear the catchy intro, “Ooga Jaka~” -a taste that previous songs did not have. Yunho: This song is an extension from “Summer Dream”, “Sky”, “Somebody to Love” that has been loved by everyone. This song has added style and fun with the summer freshness of the other songs. If it’s a color, I think red will match. It says “red light” in the lyrics, so this summer I hope that children and adults can be the red light with us and have fun. Changmin: I also think that OCEAN is a new style for Tohoshinki. It’s a very hot song that I feel everyone will start dancing to when they hear it. I also had fun while recording the song – feeling the melody with my body while singing. When I hear Tohoshinki, I imagine a group that shows us 100% coolness, like your previous single ANDROID and the album TIME. But the new single, OCEAN is like a summer song showing your real selves. Yunho: Are we always cool? Thank you (laughs). When we first debuted, our concept was a group that can do many genres. Then after a while the bar became higher and recently there were more cool and manly performances. We wanted to sing a song that we can truly enjoy and to also show our natural selves during the MV for the summer. I will be happy if everyone can also enjoy the song with us, and I personally like this song as well. Before the actual release date, it was sung at your Time Tour, and felt that the place became one during this song. Changmin: Actually the tour started right after we recorded the song, so for me, it wasn’t 100% yet. We were also nervous to sing it in front of everyone, and also the audience was listening carefully. But as the tour progressed, everyone started getting into OCEAN and felt that they were having fun. I am also happy singing the song, while looking at everyone truly enjoying themselves. Yunho: We want to become one with the audience so we cast a spell with Ooga Jaka~. So we definitely become one (laughs) During this song, the fans wave their tour towels in the air so we can really feel the energy coming towards us like the OCEAN! Changmin: Yes, it feels really good! Yunho: When you look at that from the stage, we feel that not only us but the place – everyone together makes the genre that is “Tohoshinki”. I truly feel that Tohoshinki is made by all of us, and live concerts are performances we make together.
