A Kdrama Blog that has been taken over by kpop. Multifandom. I post SHINee ~ and lots of it ~ along with VIXX, EXO, BTS,17, Day6, Monsta X, Big Bang, BtoB, Got7, Suju, f(x) & whatever I feel like posting
We looked inside some of the posts by ultrakdramamama and here's what we found interesting.
These days, I'm into the keyword "Retro Space", right? It was built into me even before Retro became a megatrend. I longed for that culture and wanted to realize it in my own way someday. I'm practicing it on the album "BAD LOVE" that will be released at the end of September. Key's own kitsch and fresh retro space!
The teaser image is also a space monster that looks like flour dough melted. The album cover is a mixture of elements from the series "Planet of the Apes", "2001 Space Odyssey", and "007" in the 1990s. When I was young, I wanted to create the SF foreign currency that we liked. Space suits made of ridiculous fabric, monsters who were somewhat sloppy in the movie, destroying the Earth...
How did you collect the data? I'm going to make the real album case look like a figure wrapped in a stationery. So I looked up old toys and the typography of the album cover was inspired by the hand drawing of the legendary rock band. For the layout, I referred to the classic foreign currency poster.
<I Wanna Be>, <Hologram>, and <FACE> all have impressive album graphics. Is there a standard to stick to when designing covers and brochures? For the previous album, I referred to the votes of experts and employees a lot. However, "BAD LOVE" came from me from the keyword "retro space," so I definitely wanted to add my color than before. Anyway, the standard for choosing a design is that the CD should be a kind of souvenir. I want an album that feels better when I collect and receive it, and has a strong sensual feeling rather than being able to buy it at any time. It's not a fan merchandise. How should I say it?
An album like an artwork? Yes. People who buy art books like it, but they are happy to own it. I hope my album is like that, too.
There is something in common if you listen from the first full-length album "FACE" to the single in 2018. Should I say that "Young and Rich" feels like a drive? What's the big frame that you want to take from Key's album? Actually, it's the easiest to choose a song from the album. I can put in my favorite song. I really like rock and American pop. It's hard to find words to explain in appropriate terms. It's probably my own taste, right? "BAD LOVE" had some twists and turns. Employees' votes and my opinions were divided. But I decided to trust myself more.
When looking at the interview, "It is also important to understand the public." Even if it's not my cup of tea, there's a reason if it's at the top of the chart, he said. How do you walk a tightrope between yourself and the public? SHINee's activities alone can't be 100% my taste. The same goes for solo albums. I think about many things. But this time, I thought I would regret it if I didn't do what I wanted. Recently, we've been on a lot of entertainment programs and haven't shown you much musically. I want to let you know that I'm strong in height and conceptual. Should I say "essential key"?
What was the most impressive moment when you worked on the album? It's really my first time. I cried after the "BAD LOVE" music video shoot. It wasn't like that during our debut music video. I guess this album was fierce. There are problems with time and budget, the music video synopsis is overturned, and there are differences in opinions with people. There were quite a few dramas. After the music video shoot, it was complicated and subtle as that moment passed by.
Don't you usually cry? I cry a lot at other times, but that's never happened when I was working on an album.
Do you change your mind a lot before the comeback? I'm nervous. There's no time when I don't work, but I can't afford it before our comeback.
Do you usually not rest? I always come up with something. It's not a business plan, but I'm constantly thinking about what to wear on "Music Bank" and what to do on TV. It's my personality.
If you're busy, you can lean on or compromise with your surroundings, but I want to do it independently. Is it more so because I've lived a life that's not independent? I know more now (the age when I debuted as SHINee) than 18 years old, so I can make better decisions and have the courage to say, "No." The flow has changed, so it's a good era of self-marketing to reveal yourself more. There are a lot of things I don't know yet. A few months ago, while promoting "Don't Call Me," I was shocked to hear that "Key likes to dance and sing."
It's been more than 13 years since we debuted. Perhaps because I did a lot of entertainment programs and went to the military in the middle, I guess I was unfamiliar with the height of singing to the public. Because of that, I learned about my present once again.
I said, "I get inspiration everywhere. Among them, I'm very interested in art. As soon as you get interested in art, you should visit it without prejudice. Ballet, musical, gallery, anything. I go there myself. Wine BANA restaurants are like that, too. While feeling food, color, and music, I realize that people look for these things a lot and get ideas.

이번주 일요일 비욘드 라이브와 다음주 월요일 앨범 공개를 앞두고 오늘 생일은 일로 시작해서 일로 끝나는 하루를 보냈습니다.
제가 뭘 해야하는 날이 아닌, 축하해주는 사람들에게 감사할수있는 하루였어요 !
우선 어머니 아버지께 진심으로 감사하고 존경을 표합니다 저의 모든 존재와 정체성은 두분이 만들어 주셨습니다 .
샤이니 월드 여러분 너무 감사합니다 . 카페며 지하철이며 버스정류장 등 가리지 않고 세상에 저의 생일을 축하해주는 모습을 보고 너무 감동받았어요 ! 사랑합니다 늘 감사합니다.
또 친구들과 스텝분들 ,저를 잘 모르지만 축하해주신 분들께도 모두 감사드립니다 .
오늘 생일은 지난날 겪었던 모든 생일을 돌아볼수있는 날이었어요 .
생일에 할머니가 돌아가신 일 , 해외에서 생일을 보냈던 일 , 군대에서 동기에게 생일선물 받았던 일 등등 언젠가 생일을 큰일이라고 생각 않고 담백하고 덤덤하게 받아들일수 있는 날이 올까 싶었는데 슬슬 그렇게 되어가는것 같네요. 이제 저를 축하해주는 많은 사람들을 더 행복하게 해주라는 의미로 알고 생일을 보내겠습니다.
앞으로도 전 완벽할순 없겠지만 좋은 영향력으로 활동하라는 팬들의 응원으로 알고 더 성실히 활동에 임할게요 모두 사랑합니다.
-아 그리고 저 편지에 언급된 돌반지는 할아버지가 무스탕 사신다고 몰래... ( 옷 좋아하는 dna가 어디서 왔는지 머리가 맑아지네요)
[trans] My birthday has passed.
Ahead of Beyond Live this Sunday and the release of the album next Monday, today's birthday started with work and ended with work.
It wasn't a day I had to do something, but a day where I was thankful to the people who wished me a happy birthday!
First of all, I'd like to express my sincere gratitude and respect to my parents. All of my existence and identity were created by the two of you.
SHINee WORLD, thank you so much. I was so touched to see you wishing me a happy birthday to the world regardless of cafe, subway, or bus stop! I love you. Thank you always.
Also, I would like to thank my friends, staff, and those who congratulated me even though they don't know me well.
Today's birthday was a day where I could look back on all the birthdays I had in the past.
I wondered if there would be a day when I could accept my birthday lightly and calmly without thinking it was a big deal, such as my grandmother's death, my overseas birthday, and my colleague's birthday gift. Now, I will spend my birthday knowing that I should make many people who congratulate me happier.
I won't be perfect in the future, but I'll work harder with the support of the fans to promote with good influence. I love you all.
- Ah, and the stone ring mentioned in that letter is secretly bought by my grandfather... - My head is clear where the clothes-loving dna came from.
