[TRANS/DISPATCH] “Love is, something to be returned”…’PLEDIS’, Merry Coal Briquette (Delivery) Volunteering

Translated by @janinekwon_
Original article >


In this place that needs a hand


kind hands are on the move.


Hand in hand,


love is piled up.


That’s. why. on. this. day


Even if dirt gets on our hands,


Even if clothes get dirty,


Even if shoes get ruined,


We are able to smile (Dokyeom).


Last December 18 morning, heavy snow poured. A warning of heavy snowfall at the metro. The whole city is frozen with white.

Here is a settlement area in Bucheon. They must fight the cold. That is why they need coal briquettes. Because this is reality and a way to survive.

NU’EST W, SEVENTEEN, Han Donggeun, and Bumzu gathered in one place. On this loneliest place, they gave the warmest hand (touch).


‘Maknae’ SVT arrived first. In one word, they were prepared ‘Volunteer-dols”. This is a first to see this kind of idols. They were bare-faced & were in sportswear.

“I’ve always wanted to help someone. Although it’s small, I hope it will be helpful to survive winter. I’ll do my best today!” (Wonwoo)


“Let’s start” (Hoshi)


“Prepared Volunteer-dols”


“Coal Briquettes! Just wait“


Soon enough, NU’EST W with Han Donggeun and Bumzu arrived. To be honest, this volunteering activity is also NU’EST W’s final goal for 2017.

They had an interview after the end of ‘WHERE YOU AT’ promotions. They were asked the last thing they want to try doing. As a group, they shouted ‘Volunteering’.


“This year, we received a very big amount of love. I want to give back that gratitude. My final goal is to share the love we received from the fans.” (Baekho)


“Today, (we are) Santa” (JR, Ren)


Pledis looked for 7 households. First, they listened to the precautions. Because of heavy snow, the road is slippery and the briquettes are frozen.


“Although it may be hard,


with a smile,


let’s gather strength!”


This is the first to be given away. It was led by Han Donggeun. He carefully moved the frozen cold briquettes. Since this is the first, it’s difficult.

Still, Han Donggeun’s expression was bright. The things he learned on (coal) delivery. Hn Donggeun delivered them (the coal) to his dongsaengs fast and accurately.

“I was worried because it snowed a lot this morning. But just like a lie, the snow stopped. I’m happy because I am able to help out the elders.” (Han Donggeun)


“Alright~ Please start” (Han Donggeun)


“Even 4 pieces are light as a feather” (Jun, Jeonghan, Aron)


“Just follow me“ (JR)


The delivery road was not easy. The path was steep, and the entrance was narrow. In one line, they stood side by side carrying briquettes, and carrying them again.


“Real! The scene of volunteering”


“Please stand in line~”


At an unseen place, there are members having a hard time. They are SEVENTEEN S.Coups & Mingyu. They carefully stack the briquettes delivered by the members.


“In harmony” (S.Coups, Mingyu)


“I’ll receive them” (Mingyu)


“The stacking is done by S.Coups!”


This is the 2nd location. The alley got more narrow. There is a need to do a relay delivery. This time, NU’EST W Baekho and JR are in the lead.


“Please be careful” (JR)


“Don’t worry” (Jun)


“We’re not delivering briquettes,” (Han Donggeun)


“We are conveying our hearts.” (Bumzu)


They are named ‘Bounce team’. They are SEVENTEEN Dokyeom, Joshua, and Hoshi. These three showed a unique briquette delivery skill. They were able to laugh for a while at the difficult scene.

“We can’t give big help but we’ll do our best! We hope everyone here gets to spend a warm winter. Just thinking about it, our hearts feel happy.” (Dokyeom, Joshua, Hoshi)

“Unique warm-up” (Hoshi, Dino, Dokyeom)


“A bounce we’re born with”


“We are the Mood-Makers” (Dokyeom)


 Just like that, another house was stacked with briquettes. They are also exhausted. Pledis, without resting, went on to the next house. They walked uphill in pairs.

“It’s like a time that I really needed for myself. As you share, your heart warms up. I’ll do my best with the dongsaengs and finish!” (Bumzu)


One unique thing is, (Hoshi)


As we volunteer, (Vernon)


The smile on our lips (S.Coups, Aron, Baekho, Woozi)


Do not end. (Ren)


Now, only 2 houses are left. This time, they delivered in 2 sets of teams. First is the Relay Team. As this is the last house, they are working harder.


“This is the last house” (Baekho)


“The ‘happily’” (Ren, Joshua)


“The ‘with strength’”


“Now, lightly” (Vernon)


At that time, S.Coups and Wonwoo directly carried the briquettes. The members who finished the relay also joined them. The weight of 1 briquette is 3.5kg. They carried it again and again…


“Up until the last briquette,“ (Aron)


“We all do our best” (Vernon)


“All this sweat“ (Bumzu, Han Donggeun)


“will be very rewarding” (S.Coups, Dino)


Pledis’s sharing donation has ended. The neighborhood residents heart-warmingly watched the boys working hard. Even when Baekho’s hand is full of coal, it is for a happy reason.

Anyone may be suspicious of their sweat (hard work). You will never know the existence of this place under the sheets of your bed. From now on, please listen to JR as the volunteering has ended.


“This is something I slightly heard. A lot volunteer on December~January but by February, the amount of support is cut in half.” (JR, Leader)


“I think there needs to be a consistent interest in this area. I’ll also do my best so I can lead the way to sharing in the future.” (S.Coups, Leader)

“Coal Briquette is” (Vernon, Ren, Aron)


“Let’s be together again next year!”

[TRANS] “Debut-like Comeback”… NU’EST W(뉴이스트W), 3 Things To Watch Out For


Translated by @janinekwon_
Source >

It’s a debut-like comeback. Group NU’EST W will start their activities. After appearing in ‘Produce 101’ and going back to trainees status, this is their first full-scale activity. ‘If You’ was released through the name of ‘NU’EST W’ but was only released as a digital single, thus, the interest for this comeback is further heightened.

A boy group that reaches its first prime after their 6-year debut. With the heart of starting anew, they appeared on ‘Produce 101 S2’. Through the program, the members’ charms were shown, and they are able to receive overwhelming support from fans, it is a rare case.

October 10 Comeback. Their ‘debut-like comeback’ has of course got fans’ attentions, but there is also a growing interest from the industry.

#Appearing in Produce 101, What Effect Could It Have Given

It must not have been an easy choice. With a 6-year debut experience, going back to being trainees again and competing for debut is a ‘daring act’. Nevertheless, they made this decision and began the survival. Minhyun, Baekho, Ren, and JR participated in ‘Produce 101’, and unlike their first entrance, they proved their own value and ended up being selected by the national producers. Minhyun was the only member who was able to debut in Wanna One, but the remaining three members also received unmatched support.

The most inspiring thing is how the members developed as individuals while in the survival. Through the severe (competitive) survival, they were reborn to be more solid musicians with strong mental, talent, and experience; they also learned variety sense. The most valuable thing is their regained confidence.

In the process, each of them were able to secure a solid fandom, and by uniting as NU’EST W, it became doubled. With topics being mixed with trainees who have to to go back to their respective companies and other performers, having a distinctive powerful force is a crucial point.

#What could be the group’s distinction from the 5-member NU’EST

They will be active with the unit name “NU’EST W” with a meaning of “the sense of waiting to meet the fans again after a long time”. The distinction is analyzed to be “growth”. Although they appeared to be trainees again on PD101, they certainly became more solid, and they were able to grow more stable. The album which they can show and prove their growth is through this upcoming album, W,HERE.

NU’EST W’s company, Pledis, introduced this album as they released last October 7 a Pre-Listening video of the 6 songs in the ‘W,HERE’ album on their official Youtube channel. The general review from the fans and the industry is “They became more mature”.

An especially impressive point is their own unrivaled color. The new album’s first track  하루만(lit. Just One Day) is a song that confesses a deep longing, the second track and title song “WHERE YOU AT” is a song that is filled with feelings that only NU’EST W has. From the third track onwards are the members’ solo songs, and with just a short reveal, it gained a lot of curiosity.

From “PARADISE” where Ren’s vocals stand out, Aron’s solo song “GOOD LOVE” filled with sweetness and charms, JR’s unique rap which is calm yet powerful that can be felt on “WITH”, and up to “지금까지 행복했어요(lit. Up until now, I have/It has been happy) where Baekho boasts his emotional and deep vocals. It is quite impressive.

#October, filled with artists…NU’EST W, can they stand on the charts

Fall where the leaves are turning into autumn colors (lit. trans). Who will shine in the charts. It is really an “Autumn Daejeon (Great Battle)”. From the senior-class ballad artists Lim Changjung, Sung Sikyung, Wheesung, etc, to musicians with a lot of anticipation such as Epik High and Wonder Girls Yeeun, and even idol lineups such as TWICE, Got7, HIGHLIGHT, BTOB. What kind of results will NU’EST W receive?

Although the competition is fierce, this is an opportunity to clearly prove their own position.  Their prevailing dominance is enough to try to win. Previously, “If You” which was released only digitally without any other promotions, kept a steady place and is continuously in real-time charts and various online music sites. With this, there is a positive outlook.

Moreover, their previously-released songs as NU’EST has been reversing and going up the charts with the organized actions of the fans, showing their force is not just ordinary. With just the strong popularity and the very generous support of fans, it is enough to say that this comeback is showing bright prospects.

[TRANSLATION] Pann-Nu’est: “Hello, will you read my post..?”

Translated by @janinekwon_

“First of all, I am a university student with no interest at all for idols..

I like indie bands or jazz musicians and the idols I’ve liked were groups like Shinee during my school days (2008~09)..

First, I came here because I have a NU’EST-related worry

I tried looking for where to put this kind of worry but it seems like here is the best place haha

I was originally supposed to write using formal grammar but looking at all the other posts here, they all use informal grammar, so I’ll write informally, too~

This isn’t about anything else but I have a boyfriend who is older (than me) for one year

Just recently it was our 600th day.. Ah, talking about our 600-day again I’m getting angry ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

If I were to talk about the main topic, my boyfriend is a NU’EST fan…

While watching Produce101 with me, he fell (for them) ;

I only really watched Produce as a variety show? and watched it lightly (as I said awhile ago, I don’t have any interest in idols or trainees)

I didn’t even vote, you know? But my boyfriend, on one day on May? started voting,, So I thought he was just bored so he did it but

After Produce ended, he really fell hard..

That Innisfree W1 bromide event, too he asked me to line up with him in the morning. And for Labiotte (I only heard of this for the first time in my life) we lined up too and what’s even (more surprising/worse) is he sent me to the Hongdae store and he went to line up to the Guro store… I already use cleansing oil so I don’t need cleansing water but this time, if you purchased a certain amount, they give you a fan-sign ticket entry, so (my boyfriend) bought 6 cleansing waters and gave me as a gift k. I don’t need it because I already use a cleansing oil but every morning is he asking me to use it for ‘drinking’ or what ㅠㅠ

And last Saturday, it was our 600th day (as a couple) but he said he went to Seongnam ㅋㅋㅋㅋ But (he) always kept on doing and taking care of this after our 100th day, I was looking for what to do for our date like going to an Itaewon Cafe or something like that but out of nowhere he said he went to Seongnam ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I had this strong (feeling) so I researched about it and it was a concert that NU’EST was on. Ah, really talking about it is making my face red

Today, the Labiotte fansign results are out and my boyfriend didn’t get in but I don’t know why does it feel like it serves him right ..

My friends were saying, compared to him liking girl groups, I’d be less jealous with this but ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ if you look at our Kakaotalk chat, it’s 80% full of NU’EST videos links and pictures ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

How could I understand this..

This week, we’re also going to the fanmeeting together.. My boyfriend had a crazy fit when he knew the fanmeeting will be at his school (Korea University) so he even bought my ticket to bring me.

I feel sorry that this isn’t a post to praise NU’EST but there isn’t exactly a place to talk about this so I posted this here.. Because it’s my boyfriend’s hobby? I’ll be able to understand, right?..

I am currently trying my best to understand my boyfriend, I’m also memorizing what my boyfriend (said) to memorize (fan cheers).

Kyang~ Thank you for reading this random-worded sad post..

Just in case there is a couple together on the fanmeeting, act like you don’t know anything.. (Take note, we’re going on Sunday)

Ah really I’m feeling miserable and sad but he likes it..

Thank you again for reading…”

[ENG SUB] Weekly Idol E280/281: SECHSKIES

You might be wondering how I ENDED UP BECOMING a SECHSKIES fan.

I was around 10 years old (year 2007) when I got to got addicted to the Korean culture. I was browsing YouTube for funny videos when I stumbled upon a clip (luckily with English subtitles) of this Korean show. It was the early Korean variety show called X-Man (X-맨) where all the famous MCs and entertainers now used to be in  (including Yoo Jaesuk, Kang Hodong, Park Myungsoo, Kim Jongmin, Kim Jongkook, Haha, and many more).

This was probably why I have always been a fan of older generation K-pop idol groups. The very first group I got into was H.O.T. (Yes, I know, I feel so old now), although they already disbanded by that time. And then I learned of their rival group, SECHSKIESI became a fan because of their leader, Eun Jiwon, who was a fixed cast in the variety shows I enjoyed the most such as Jihwaza (작렬! 정신통일), Come To Play, and 1N2D. I also liked how expressive the lyrics of their songs were, and how extremely different they were from the other idol groups at that time.

After some time though with the emergence of various new groups such as Super Junior and Big Bang, I sort of forgot about SECHSKIES because it felt like they weren’t coming back as a group specially since so many years have already passed. So when Infinity Challenge announced the reunion project for the group, it came off as a great shock to me. I mean, who would have imagined that an idol group that suddenly disbanded 16 years ago would make a comeback? Watching them interact and perform as a whole group again and surrounded by all their fans (who have grown up as adults just like them) felt nostalgic. Just last week, I even almost bought myself a ticket to their Busan concert since I’ll be in Korea again this winter break (but the VIP tickets got sold out too fast aww). Wish I could see them in the award shows, though (if they come).

As soon as I saw the preview of their guesting in Weekly Idol, I promised myself I would sub the show as fast as I can. This was my way of gratitude towards the members for fulfilling the fans’ dreams of having them reunite as a group, and also so they could gain new fans. It took me exactly 2 days to translate and soft-sub everything, and luckily I was able to find a very HD raw video (720p in 60 frames per second, the quality is so good I’m shaking).

So yeah, thanks for listening to my personal story! Here are the links (download and streaming) for SECHSKIES’s Weekly Idol episode:
