[141201 SHINee @ NHK Hangul Kouza]
Q: SHINee are also in the middle of studying Japanese, right? Do you have any advice for everyone who is studying hangul (Korean)?
Jonghyun: While studying Japanese, I think the most helpful thing is watching anime and drama. I think that it is better to get used with listening first, and I put a lot of effort in that part.
Taemin: Since we do not have a routine/schedule for studying Japanese, it's difficult to receive regular lessons. So we usually have conversations with the staff or with people around us who know Japanese and ask them about Japanese culture. By studying and getting closer to the culture little by little, I think that it follows that one will get better with words, too.
Onew: I think the most important thing is "having confidence" (in learning the language). What remains for us to do is to try to speak it anyway. If we made a mistake, then we just correct it. I think it is the best way to learn.
