the shinhwa perfect girl checklist (ver. 2000)

I can’t quite remember when this interview was done, but if I don’t recall wrongly it was probably during the 2nd jib… when they were young and….naive(?) 😛

  1. I’m about 150 cm and 12 years youngers (♨_♨)
    Seems like i need to wear shoelift for my entire life lol

  2. reading this is like… death at age difference…
    but damn eric and i think alike A LOT.. it amazes me from the day i became their fan and came to know i share same d.ob with him.. but still not my type..
    andy and hyesung though….. eeeeeeeee love ya guys can we ignore the fact that im 15 yrs younger ? please??

  3. ROFL This was hilarious!!!! I was cracking up with the comments in parenthesis hahahahaha I’m not their standard 😦 but hahahaha life spins a lot sooo maybe their fated one isn’t like their standard?? Hahahahah

    Thanks for sharing!!!

  4. By the time I reached the age difference section, I felt like my soul departed from my body. It’s like a punch in the gut.

  5. The only thing that crossed my mind after reading this: “Minwoo: You’ve been chosen by me!”, was: GO PIKACHU xD

  6. Just a suggestion, why not anyone gives all the questions above to the guys once more, see if there’s any changes.

  7. AWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I totally wanna be Min Woo’s girlfriend!!! Do you have a fever?! Lol.. So mean!!!! I would cry!!!! 😥

  8. The checklist-very interesting, I enjoyed it very much, have a good laugh.I didn’t know Shinhwa’s criteria so cute,so amusing. One thing for sure all of them like straight,long hair girls ,but in reality before marriage (long hair)after it will probably is short hair because is less hassle (haha).I guess looking for partner have to be mutual understanding,love and respect-if only Shinwa’s guys are born earlier ,good clip, very funny…………..

  9. Reading their Check List makes me laugh and miss them more! I wish there have a program in the future which they will asked Shinhwa the same set of question! It would be so interesting to compare their answers! (lol) and agree with the last part..Wannie’s answer seems the sweetest!

  10. lmao , just found this blog, n fall in love right away
    ooo, i really miss them
    lmao for all the comments

  11. omg, just couldnt stop laughing throughout the whole thing! its so hilarious… lol at dongwan and his obsession with health. and hyesung and the hair! lol, but his hair is nice when kept long and tied back, like in his first concert or 10th anniversary!

    shinhwa, never fails to make me laugh.

    we’ll be waiting for your comeback!

    ❤ shinhwa forever

  12. I laughed a lot while reading their checklist……Wannie so funny forehead and hands…. Why forehead??? Still worried about baldness????

  13. Well, I have to confess that I have laughed and blushed a lot during the reading. ha ha ha

    Dongwan shi is so cute.

    Anyway, somehow I feel that Hyesung shi and Eric shi answers are quite the same… their answers are in different aspects but are in the same direction.

    1. they are not water and oil actually , they are similliar each another so thats the reason they’ve been awkward, read this check list several times already but still makes me giggles.
      Thanks su

    I don’t think i’ve met any of the requirements. HAHA HOW? i’m a lively bubbly person but i get pissed easily like hyesung… haha

  17. Sungie? Selfcentered?
    YAH, tahts what M said abt him.. hahaha, sometime I think its TRUE!
