[12.12.03] The Evolution of Shinhwa’s Ideal Types

From yesterday’s (2 Dec) episode of Shinhwa Broadcast, where they were discussing why none of them has managed to get married and subsequently delved into an analysis of how their ideal types have evolved over the years… And it’s a complete riot LOLOLOL.

Shin-Brief presented a table containing descriptions either taken from past interviews or mentioned during their TV appearances, and I thought it’s a timely update from that old one that I’ve translated years ago – I hope I managed to capture everything that was listed… ^^

ERIC
1998: Long hair, with tanned skin (Eric said that there could be a mistake here because this description sounded more like himself when he first made his debut. HA.)
1999: Small hands and feet, with a nude make-up look
2000: Height above 170cm, slim and cosmopolitan (by ‘cosmopolitan’ I think he means something along the lines of a city girl)
2006: A girl who’s more mature than her peers
2009: A pretty girl who treats my parents well
2012: Intellectual, cosmopolitan (He mentioned that his ideal type is someone like actress Kim Nam Joo, with a sharp and sophisticated dress sense)

MINWOO
1998: I like all female celebrities
1999: Chubby (Yaaaay….? LOL.)
2002: A girl who’s pretty even when she’s just wearing a white t-shirt and jeans
2004: Chubby
2005: A girl dressed in sportswear and is doing stretching (I think that was the year he was working out and hitting the gym a lot for his 2nd solo album. Hee.)
2007: Good at making money and at housekeeping
2008: Cute and chubby

DONGWAN
(Dongwan got a lot of flak from the other guys because his descriptions seemed to be kinda contradictory LOL. At a point they riled him up so much that he just went, “YA! That’s up to ME!” HAHAHAHAHAHA.)
2000: Height of 170cm (Apparently at that time he was dating a girl with a height of 170cm)
2006: Like girls who study a lot / Doesn’t like girls with big hands / Likes girls who don’t smile easily / Ideal occupation: Kindergarten teacher (Eric pointed out that it doesn’t sound right for a kindergarten teacher to not smile in front of the kids, to which Wannie said, ‘The kindergarten teacher part is fake.’ LOL)
2008: Blood type A, conservative & modest / With a lot of dating experience
2011: A girl who doesn’t have sharp features (Jinnie asked if he meant girls who look like Mona Lisa and proceeded to break into a laughing fit. HAHAHA.)
2012: A girl who makes her own choices and is driven / Doesn’t like girls who confess first

ANDY
2007: Any girl will do
2008: A girl who’s good at making kimchi
2009: I like any girl who’s kind
2011: Any girl will do as long as she just looks only at me
(Oh poor lonely Andy. LOL.)

JUNJIN
2000: A girl who’s able to cry heartfelt tears for others
2002: A girl who’s cheerful and bright in front of others, but quiet in front of me (Even Jinnie himself said that sounded like someone with a bipolar disorder LOL.)
2007: A girl who can be a good wife and mother
2008: A girl who treats my parents well
2009: A girl who can be a good wife and mother

HYESUNG
1998: Kind and does a lot of aegyo
2000: A girl who always carries knitting tools in her bag / Carries a handkerchief / Does a lot of aegyo
2002: Cute and does a lot of aegyo
2005: Cute and does a lot of aegyo
2006: Feminine and does a lot of aegyo
2008: A girl who can connect with the right feel and does a lot of aegyo
(The guys notice Hyesung’s penchant for aegyo and they go into HILARIOUS simulations of aegyo, including a very annoying rendition of ‘Apeunya? Na-do apeuda’ / ‘Are you hurting? I’m hurting too’ from MinJin. HAHAHAHAHAHHAA gotta watch it to experience it)

I’m not sure when the SFSubs team will release the Eng subs for this ep (on a related note, kudos to the SFSubs team. Subbing is seriously a laborious and unfortunately (sometimes) thankless job. :( So go to their site/Twitter and thank them if you’re reading this!) but here’s the unsubbed episode to whet your appetite for now^^
