Q: Hi! SS501, very happy to meet you. I am the reporter of Music specialize Website Monkey3. It has been very long since you come back, during this time all the members are having solo activities, how do you feel after returning back as a team again?
HyungJoon: Although we were having our solo activities before this, that only allow me to realize the importance of SS501 to me and it strengthen the mutual trust among each others. Therefore, the period of solo activities are very meaningful to me. We met each other less often but the tacit understanding remains the same, really felt very happy.
JungMin: The new songs represented more of our own style and charm, it is also very meaningful for us.
Q: HyunJoong suffered a lot when you contracted with H1N1. During medication alone in Japan, how do you feel?
HyunJoong: It was indeed a painful memories. Luckily Japan is very well equipped with medicine for curing H1N1, so I could recover faster. During medication treatment, most of the time I wiould watch internet movie from the computer in my room to past time.
However, the download speed was too slow, I was almost bored to death.... with the pain in my body and the boredom, I felt like I was almost dead during the time.... (Smile)
Q: No matter what, congratulation to Kim HyunJoong for returning healthily! You must have something to tell you fans who were so worried about you.
HyunJoong: Please do not fear to go near to friends who contracted with H1N1. Actually most important of all is to remember to take care of yourself, don't be contracted by H1N1! Always wash your hands and wear your mask!
Q: SS501 new mini album Rebirth, was top in sales chart since released. What is your thoughts on this?
All members: We are the 1st? Really?JungMin: Actually 5 of us have not been together for very long. Before that we have drama, musical and special unit activities...... When we were apart, it was a time for self improvement, so that now when we are back together, we can perform even better.
KyuJong: In future, we will work harder to participate in more programs, allowing everybody to listen to our music which are full of confidence.
Q: Your new music has a great difference from your past music, are you trying to throw away the idol burden with this the new trial ? What is the reason of choosing this type of music?
YoungSaeng: If you think that we have purposely chosen more difficult songs, it is not our intention, we have only wanted to venture into a new direction, to find music which are more suitable for us and also to expand into more areas. During recording, all we think of was to produce a higher quality product and work hard for it! For example, in order to enable the song to have more pop feel, we collaborate with oversea producers so that it would not be a repetition of our previous songs. We have listen to songs of different genre from different countries, using others positive points to improve ourselves...
Q: Recently you held a large scale Asia Tour Concert in Taiwan, the responses was very good. Taiwan fans were very passionate. Was this an effect from 'Boys over Flowers'? What do you think?
HyunJoong: When we first went to Taiwan, there's around 1400+ fans waiting for us, we were really shocked. Really really thankful to everybody. And also, There's a lot of delicious food in Taiwan, especially the dumplings which I like most.... (Smile)All members shout together: XiaoLongBao~!! Super delicious!
Q: This album you have invited AJ, the famous choreographer who had helped choreograph for Michael Jackson, what have you gain from here? Is the choreography for the new songs?
YoungSaeng: The dance is very special, have you seen our first day come back?
All of them shout: Ah~~
JungMin: (Smile) During the first time come back stage performance, HyunJoong hyung suggested that we used our fingers to show the 'L''O''V''E''♡' hand sign. We followed HyunJoong hyung instructions to perform and who was the person that didn't do well!!! HyungJoon!!
KyuJong: Hyun Joong hyung asked who was the first to go on stage, so he assigned each other saying: "You are L" "You are O" .... One by one he taught each of us the hand sign, however when we looked at the broadcast we can't figure out the hand sign for Hyung Joon, whether he was showing a 'L' or 'E'.... that finger....
HyungJoon: I really really wanted to show it correctly! Totally never thought of messing up!!
JungMin: It's you that caused our come back stage a failure! The way you showed the hand sign, when Young Saeng hyung showed his hand sign, who would know he was trying to show an 'E'!

Q: Recently because of Asia Tour, you must be very busy everyday. As your oversea activities has increased, when all of you stay together, there must be some interesting things to share right?
HyunJoong: The most difficulties must be language barrier! Also taking flight is very tiring.... Last time when we were in Japan, staying in hostel, as we have no time to cook rice, when we wanted to cook rice we found the rice buckle was half filled with rice and another half was rice worm.
All members clapping their hands: Correct! Correct! hehehe!
