HERE’S PART ONE. RT= rough translation. Forgive my mistakes, and hopefully the English makes sense LOL. I’ll have part two up soon.
Welcome to SINA , I’m the host Zhao Ning. Before this started we saw a very exciting MV, and that was by today’s guests, EXO-M. Welcome to the show.
Why don’t you greet them?
Hello everyone! We are Exo-M.
Welcome, many friends on the internet have been waiting for the live stream, hoping that they’ll be able to interact with you guys through our show today. We just saw the MAMA MV, and I was wondering if you guys would perform a bit here live today. Kris, is it possible?
KRIS：可以。LAY、LU HAN、XIU MIN。
Yes, it is. Lay, Luhan, Xiumin.
Host: This is a live stream, so everyone can understand how we’ve planned this. Our handsome brothers (that’s the way she worded it, basically means our handsome guests in context) have already prepared, so please give us the music. (This part is translated roughly, sorry!)
（LAY、LU HAN、XIU MIN现场表演《MAMA》）
Lay, Luhan, and Xiumin perform MAMA. (the dancing, and excerpt)
Host: Wow, that was great! Today, we have many people who are music fanatics; what do you guys think?
Audience: GREAT! (They actually said “handsome” in Chinese, but here it means they were really good)
Host: I see a few who are already really emotional and crying. Just now when Exo-M greeted us, you guys had a certain way of doing it. That is your trademark greeting, right?
Host: What does this mean? (Basically, they did the WE ARE ONE with the thumbs up in the beginning, and the host wants to know what the thumbs up means)
That means “great”, and represents our wish to be recognized in the music industry (RT). It also represents, since we actually have 12 members, 6 in Korea, how we are ONE.
Host: Previously, you guys greeted the audience together. Everyone is here, so can you guys introduce yourselves individually? Kris, please go first.
Hello everyone, I am Exo-M’s leader, Kris.
Host: Welcome, Kris.
Hello everyone, I am Exo-M’s member, Lay.
Host: Welcome, Lay.
LU HAN：大家好，我是EXO-M的成员，LU HAN。
Hello everyone, I am Exo-M’s member, Lu Han.
Host: Welcome, Lu Han.
XIU MIN：大家好，我是EXO-M的成员XIU MIN。
Hello everyone, I am Exo-M’s member, Xiu Min.
Host: Welcome, Xiu Min.
Hello everyone, I am Exo-M’s member, Chen.
Host: Welcome, Chen.
Hello everyone, I am Exo-M’s youngest member, Tao.
Host: Welcome, Tao.
So we just established that the MAMA MV was the MV we just saw. Can Chen introduce the song to us? (Basically talk about it)
I think Chen sort of paused here because he didn’t know what to say. Kris steps in.
Actually, MAMA is a very exciting, fresh and intense song, and the makeup (think he means like their stage costumes) and the style of the song help give this song a very strong feeling. The song also has an element of mystery due to the orchestral background, and the way we perform, so our stages of this song will always be very extravagant. (Epic, basically) (RT)
Host: This MV has won over many fans, and everyone has been going online and using their own methods to try to understand this songs meaning. Is there any member who will talk about how you guys have interpreted this song?
(EXO gets kind of quiet here, and they don’t really know what to say)
It’s okay, I’ll ask later.
(RT) Can you guys describe your group to us?
Exo-M is actually derived from Exoplanet (LOL CHINGLISH), and it represents the outer, unknown planets that are not in the solar system. Exo is basically a shortened form of Exo-planet. Our group’s unique point is that we have a Korean portion and a Chinese portion, and we are in different countries at the same time, singing the same songs but in two different languages. (RT)
Yes, I saw that everyone had a different symbol, representing you guys in outer space. Did you guys choose them yourself?
No, we didn’t choose them.
It’s based on personality, right?
I guess you can say that. We’ll introduce our symbols.
Let’s start from Tao this time.
I have the time symbols, and I can stop time.
Stopping time, you have that power?
Yes, my ability is to be able to stop time and space.
What about Chen?
I have the symbol of lightning, but the badge is not hung on my clothes. I wear it on a ring. (Chen uses a translator)
What about you, Xiumin?
(Xiumin tries to speak in Chinese, switches to translator) I’m sorry, my Chinese still isn’t very good, so I’ll talk to everyone in Korean today. In the future, I will do my best to study Chinese, so I can communicate with you guys in Chinese.
Thank you, we’ll give you encouragement.
I wear something like a snowflake, and it represents melting.
I can use my mind of move things.
I’m a unicorn, so I can heal things.
Kris, what about you?
I uh, I can fly (at this point of the interview he waves his arms like he’s flying :3) because I’m a dragon.
then you must be very powerful.
Eh, I’m alright.
So we’ve said up to here. Luhan is from Beijing; did you get to return home this time coming to China?
Not yet. We debuted on the 8th, and then from ShenZhen we came to Beijing today, so I haven’t visited home yet.
After this will you have time to visit?
I’m not sure, but I’ve already talked to my parents through the phone.
Oh, but we have a special life to give you, Lu han! Let’s watch it together.
（播放短片）(plays a video. This is a video made by his old teachers and students at his high school. Everyone is cheering him on, and his teacher was like “oh, he’s more popular than I am now”)
主持人赵宁：看到学校教导主任白老师还有点吃醋，说LU HAN的名气比她还大了，她还提到LU HAN曾经有一个梦想，你还记得当时有什么梦想吗？
After the clip of teacher Bai being jealous and saying “Oh Luhan’s more famous than I am,” she also mentioned how you had a dream before. Do you still remember your dream at that time?
At that time I just wanted to become a singer, because I like singing.
But when did you go to Korea, and how did you get into SM’s company?
To be honest before I was studying abroad in Korea. I arrived in ‘08, and went to learn Korean, and I didn’t really have any chances to look around and explore. (RT). But then there was a time when I went shopping in MyeongDong with a friend, and someone from SM discovered me.
Did the other five members also enter SM this way? Kris, what’s the normal way?
Well, it was all different for us. Originally I was studying in Vancouver, Canada and I just went to the audition. This was in ‘07.
What about Lay?
I was recruited in Wuhan, ‘08.
In 2008 I participated in a singing competition (everysing) and won awards, so I got into SM.a
In 2011 I won a singing competition, so SM selected me.
What about Tao?
I was in recruited in Tsingdao in 2011.
In SM, you guys have many excellent seniors, like Super Junior, and DBSK. Have these groups given you any help or encouragement?
I once worked with Shinee. They helped me a lot, and once they knew I was going to debut, they watched out for me.
So you guys have these guys as your inspiration to work hard? (RT)
Actually everyone is outstanding, and they have helped us a lot.
They’re all our inspiration.
They can all be considered our goals, and we hope in the future that we will be able to perform with them.
We will also be anticipating this.
In this group everyone has a different role, right? What are your roles?
Who’s going to speak first? Ah, I’ll speak first then. I’m the leader, and I’m also in charge of the rapping sections.
Then can you rap a few verses for us right now?
Right now? Well, I haven’t made any preparations…
Just one verse, please?
I’ll do it in English. Tao, help me out, why don’t you rap it a few too. (RT)
Okay, then I’ll sing one.
We just mentioned Tao; Tao, what’s your role?
In the group I’m also in charge of rap as well as martial arts.
（KRIS现场说唱） (Kris raps the English of Two Moons)
That was great. Lay, what’s your role?
Mine is dancing.
Oh right, we saw you dance earlier. What about you, Luhan?
I sing and dance.
Then why don’t you sing a bit? Let’s hear it.
I’ll sing with Chen.
（LU HAN、CHEN现场清唱）Chen and Luhan sing Baby Don’t Cry, Chinese Version.
I mainly sing and dance. Also there’s the screamo parts.
(XIUMIN screams and the host is slightly shocked. I think this is actually missing some parts of the interview D:)
I heard you like JJ’s songs.
Do you want to sing a bit for us?
（XIU MIN现场清唱）Xiu Min sings a bit of JJ. (It’s awesome. Xiu Min breaking out into random Chinese song LOL)
Tao, it’s now you?
Audience: There’s still Chen.
Oh, there’s still Chen. But Chen sang before.
Audience: That’s not okay. (They want him to sing more)
They say it’s not okay. They want you to sing more.
I’ll see the main vocal part then.
（CHEN现场清唱）I think Chen sings MAMA here. The really high notes, haha.
Our Tao. (Tao’s turn)
Am I singing or performing?
Audience: He has a waist injury.
If you have a waist injury, then it’s not very good to let you perform. How is the injury right now?
Right now my waist is a lot better, thanks.
Then you’ll rap?
I’ll rap from two moons then.
（TAO现场说唱）Tao raps his fast part in Two Moons.
Who still hasn’t gone yet?
Lay, they say that you haven’t performed yet.
Do a dance sequence.
Lay, you look so dejected haha.
（LAY现场表演舞蹈）Lay dances a bit of History. The music randomly starts but he’s trying to find a place to start.
Thank you to our 6 cute men in Exo-M, who have brought us a wonderful show.
On a side note, everyone cares a lot of your lifestyle in Korea. Who rooms with who?
