Dal★shabet becoming “goddesses of spring” on Men’s Health

Dal★shabet, which is giving performances of “Hit U,” made a new appearance as “goddesses of spring.”
In the latest issue of men’s magazine, Men’s Health, which commemorate its sixth anniversary, Dal★shabet covers a page with a “goddess-of-spring” look in a cheerful and lovely mood. The pictorial surprises the fans since the group projects a completely different image from their strong, charismatic performances of “Hit U.”
As the latest issue is about celebrating the sixth anniversary of the magazine, the pictorial shooting ran under the concept of a party. Each member features a party look, holding a balloon in a hand. The red and white mini-dresses show their lovely charms, also appealing their gorgeous figure.
On White Day last year, Dal★shabet shot pictorials with Men’s Health, and the company decided to shoot another one with them to celebrate their sixth anniversary this year. Because it has been a year since the last shooting, all members of Dal★shabet surprised staff and crew at the set with more a mature look than last year.
In addition, Dal★shabet is said to have not lost smiles and kept the mood lively at the set.
The group is to continue its activity with their fourth mini-album “Hit You,” and the latest pictorials will be available in March issue of Men’s Health.

In the interview after the shooting, T.O.P said, “I will never play the ‘star’ that will threaten my position as an actor. I don’t want to play boring and popular roles like a singer, bad boy, or son of a rich family.”
When told that he would fit well in every character, he said, “I’ve always thought that I don’t quite fit in my career as an entertainer. I’m not that talented, but I’m building up what I’ve studies and learned within my ability.”
He also said that he likes women who are easy-going and who can bear him, adding that he does not want to get married at an early age, but he will do that whenever possible if he finds his true love.
