Yamada Ryosuke

The Yearly JUMP Christmas Present Exchange

The teacup set that I got from Chinen is my favourite, I use it all the time. Since I have a lot of tableware at my place, about 100 pieces, it’s my only nice piece of tableware (lol). This year I want something that’s easy to use like an air humidifier ♪

Keyword 1- Flavour

Flavouring paste. About 6 years ago I was allowed to do a commercial for it but, I really do use it at home (lol). I often use it for fried rice, or soups, or sautéed vegetables.

Keyword 2- Clothes

I have 20 pairs of black jeans. It’s important that the fit is right, like ones that suit my shape.

Keyword 3- Season

I like Autumn. It’s got the perfect temperature for easily passing the time without it being too hot or too cold (lol). There’s a kind of melancholy all over town and I like this quiet atmosphere too.

Keyword 4- Smell

The cologne that I’ve used ever since my first year of high school. It’s my favourite because it has a manly smell.

Keyword 5- Place

Hey! Say! JUMP. To me, I think they are like a family that I come home to. Of course, they obviously are but, I guess they always feel like they’re there.

Keyword 6- Johnny’s Song

Kinki Kids’ “Flower”. It was the first CD I ever bought. It makes me feel great when I listen to it!

Keyword 7- Colour

White. Because you can dye it to become any colour. Rather than being a colour I use, I mean it’s a colour with an image that I like. The colour that I use for clothes and stuff is jet black (lol).

Keyword 8- Person

Leonardo DiCaprio. I want to ask him how he freed himself from being typecast as a handsome actor.

Keyword 9- Time

I like the time I spend rolling around on the couch at home playing games. When I have a day off I start gaming in the morning, and spend the time ruining myself. It’s something that I could never show to anyone (lol).

Keyword 10- Number

4. I was number 4 at my audition. And I’m making a necklace with a 4 motif on it too.

Keyword 11- Sound

That “plop” sound of water dripping. I like the music they play for healing or when you’re having a massage too.

Keyword 12- Sport

I guess it’s soccer. I’m a member of Yabu-kun’s “Yabucchi F.C.” but, the other day I played in a game for the first time in a while and because my stamina had wasted away I was exhausted (lol).

Keyword 13- Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The Great Gatsby”. It’s a movie that makes me feel like “This is the perfect lead role”. I like Emma Watson’s “Beauty and the Beast” as well.

Keyword 14- Scenery

The scenery of the area I lived in when I was a kid. I want to live surrounded by greenery when I’m old .

Keyword 15- Event

Concerts. Because it’s a unique place, there is nowhere else where I can feel that way. It’s how I make a living; I feel like it’s something you can’t experience in everyday life. For me it’s the world of my dreams.

Keyword 16- Girls’ habit

The moment when a bit of skin shows through the slit in their skirt. But, saying it like that makes me sound like a perv (lol). Because it’s a fleeting glimpse of what men don’t have, they can see the appeal!

Keyword 17- Word

“Thank-you”. I think people who can’t express their gratitude, aren’t people at all.

Keyword 18- Part of myself

My nose. I have a complex about my nose but, all kinds of people compliment me on it. Since about three years ago, I’ve been able to gradually feel more confident about it, and overcome my complex.

Keyword 19- Animal

Dogs. I like toy poodles! I say that but, I like all animals except frogs (lol).

Keyword 20- JUMP

The fact that we’ve never changed. Especially how we’ve always gotten along this well! I don’t know about the relationships of other groups but, even the staff always say to us “You get along really well”.

Chinen Yuri

The Yearly JUMP Christmas Present Exchange

Every year, Ino-chan and Daiki have the image of preparing some of the latest goods. I expect they’ll have the same idea again this year but, I’m excited to see if I’m the one to get them or not!

Keyword 1- Flavour

I’ve liked ramen and salty flavours for a long time, and I eat tonkatsu and tempura with salt too.

Keyword 2- Clothes

The most important thing is the feeling of the fabric. Because knits make you hot and they’re prickly, apart from them pretty much anything is fine. Only the ones that are really prickly are no good. Apart from that I guess it’s stuff like black jeans.

Keyword 3- Season

I don’t do well in heat so, I like Autumn when it gradually gets colder. I like Winter too.

Keyword 4- Smell

The smell of sesame oil is great and makes me hungry. When I smell it, I suddenly come alive. Before I fry pork, I drizzle it with sesame oil like seasoning to make it delicious.

Keyword 5- Place

In my bedroom at home, laying on the bed surfing the net. Because it’s the place I can feel the most relaxed.

Keyword 6- Johnny’s Song

Arashi’s “Subarashiki Sekai”(Wonderful World). It’s just an album song but, when I was in elementary school and I heard it live my heart stopped. Ever since then, it’s still my number one Arashi song even now.

Keyword 7- Colour

I’ve naturally accumulated a lot of blue furniture and goods. It’s the colour that I want instinctively.

Keyword 8- Person

The person that became the reason that I’ve continued on in the world of entertainment, obviously Arashi’s Ohno Satoshi is special to me. Because he’s someone who’s always in the frontline, the person that I admire will never change.

Keyword 9- Time

The one or two hours before I got to sleep is the time in my day that I feel I can “turn off” the most and relax, so it’s the time I like. Of course, I’ll be lying on my bed surfing the net (lol).

Keyword 10- Number

I’ve liked 8 ever since I was in elementary school. Because it has a nice shape and when you spread it out it brings good luck.

Keyword 11- Sound

Because I don’t want to go out on rainy days I want to stay home. When I do, hearing the pitter patter sound of the rain hitting the roof is great. Because it’s a sound that somehow soothes my heart.

Keyword 12- Sport

I learnt soccer from about 2nd to 4th grade in elementary school, I like watching and playing it.

Keyword 13- Movie

The “Digimon Adventure” movie that I saw when I was in elementary school, the movie and the song are both great.

Keyword 14- Scenery

I’ll never forget how it felt looking at the place where the streets spilt in Las Vegas. That wide scenery where nothing is blocking your view, it’s a scenery that you can’t see in Japan.

Keyword 15- Event

Music event venues have an exciting, uplifting atmosphere that I like.

Keyword 16- Girls’ habit

When they genuinely laugh from the heart. It’s fine even if a guffaw suits her best.

Keyword 17- Word

“Two birds with one stone”. Because it feels clever and very efficient. I want to live my life in a two birds with one stone kind of way. I have to live efficiently (lol).

Keyword 18- Part of myself

The corners of my mouth when they go up when I laugh. Because people often compliment me on them.

Keyword 19- Animal

Since I was a kid I’ve liked cute little green tree frogs. I like lizards too and I always end up touching them. For some reason I think reptiles have cute faces and I like them.

Keyword 20- JUMP

All of the members are kind, their considerateness towards others is something I will never forget.

Nakajima Yuto

The Yearly JUMP Christmas Present Exchange

Last year I got the humidifier that uses plastic bottles that Chinen chose. I use it all the time, it’s become my companion on this year’s tour too. Of course I gave a 360 camera (lol).

Keyword 1- Flavour

I like Japanese sweets like red bean paste and sweet dango because they make me feel warm and happy and calm. Right now, I’m eating wheat candy while giving this interview.

Keyword 2- Clothes

Jeans of course! I’ve never told you before but, I have over 20 pairs.

Keyword 3- Season

The season that has the most comfortable temperature and is fun to choose clothes for is Autumn. It’s a season of delicious fruit too. Grapes and pears and persimmons… there are so many seasonal things, it’s the best!

Keyword 4- Smell

When I smell osmanthus flowers, it reminds me of Autumn. It’s got a slightly sweet, fleeting scent.

Keyword 5- Place

My room. Because it’s the place I come home to when I’m tired, it has this environment where I can relax more than anywhere else. Relaxing on my old favourite sofa is bliss.

Keyword 6- Johnny’s Song

“Sorafune” (Airship) is really cool. The feel of Matsuoka-kun’s drums is too good!

Keyword 7- Colour

Calming white. Because I like monotones, I choose a lot of black and navy clothes, basically if I had to pick a favourite colour it would be white.

Keyword 8- Person

The Red Hot Chilli Peppers drummer Chad Smith. There’s a charm to his powerful yet delicate performance.

Keyword 9- Time

After I’ve eaten my dinner, and my stomach is full.

Keyword 10- Number

I guess 2. Compared to that show off “1”, that feeling of “second” somehow has a more calming feeling. It feels like it’s the power in the shadows too.

Keyword 11- Sound

The China cymbal on my drums. I love how it sounds when I’m tapping out a rhythm.

Keyword 12- Sport

I did karate for about four years in elementary school, and I have an interest in martial arts and hand-to-hand fighting now. I want to try learning things that could be used for an action role.

Keyword 13- Movie

I love the “Star Wars” series. The fights are cool and of course the magnificence of space, and that familiar “family” component in the story is charming too.

Keyword 14- Scenery

Gazing at the sky from the windows of an airport. I could look at the trails of cloud for ever.

Keyword 15- Event

Johnny’s Countdown! I can see all of my different senpai and kohai, and the collaboration songs are always fun. When Johnny’s is there in full force is a very luxurious time.

Keyword 16- Girls’ habit

When she seems embarrassed after she stumbles and scares herself (lol). I think that the honest expression she makes in these unexpected moments is cute.

Keyword 17- Word

“Normal”. I think because we’re idols, it’s a feeling that you shouldn’t forget.

Keyword 18- Part of myself

I guess it’s my moles, that have somehow multiplied over the years. The beauty spot near my eye is my favourite but, I actually have them all the way from my eyes to my cheeks, and from my neck to my shoulders.

Keyword 19- Animal

Reptiles. They’re difficult to care for but, I want to try owning a chameleon.

Keyword 20- JUMP

Maybe it’s simple but, “we get along well”. We don’t just get all excited and mess around together, we have a relationship where we all have a mutual understanding of each other.

Arioka Daiki

The Yearly JUMP Christmas Present Exchange

Last year, the fireplace shaped heater I got from Keito was cool and I use it for my interior decorating too. Because everyone always thinks outside the box, I hope everyone has great sense this year too.

Keyword 1- Flavour

I love omelette rice and that will never change. I get excited just looking at it.

Keyword 2- Clothes

Hoodies. Especially not the ones with the zipper on the front, I love the feeling of being wrapped up in a pull-over hoodie. Apart from Summer I use them all year round, without noticing it I ended up accumulating a lot of them.

Keyword 3- Season

Summer. The blue sky as it gradually gets lighter, the big clouds and the sound of the cicadas is exciting too.

Keyword 4- Smell

Because I like citrusy smells, before I go to sleep I spray my bed with a lemon room fragrance. Because it’s a relaxing fruit I can sleep well.

Keyword 5- Place

Looking around down town. Seeing the smiles of kids as they come home from school makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

Keyword 6- Johnny’s Song

I’ve really loved Kinki Kids’ “LOVESICK” for a long time. The lyrics too but, I like the sound of it. When I was in high school I’d often listen to it on my way to school or on the train on my way to work.

Keyword 7- Colour

Orange. I used it a lot so I’d always use up my orange crayon right away.

Keyword 8- Person

If I think about it, I’ve learnt a lot of things from Inohara Yoshihiko-kun. Because I was allowed to be on a show together with him when I was Junior, I learnt the knowledge of being a working adult.

Keyword 9- Time

7pm. Because I’m a TV kid, I love this golden time for enjoying fun variety programmes. When I was a kid I’d often watch “Let’s Go To School!”.

Keyword 10- Number

Lucky number 3. Since about the time got over 20 years old it’s a number that’s had some kind of fate.

Keyword 11- Sound

The sound when you snap the rubber band on the plastic containers that they put the side dishes in at the supermarket. It reminds me of the smell of the side dishes inside and I get excited.

Keyword 12- Sport

Dodgeball. I wanted to play is straight away after classes finished and we’d always run all the way to the school yard.

Keyword 13- Movie

“Summer Time Machine Blues”. It’s a youth sci-fi comedy movie that I want to watch every Summer.

Keyword 14- Scenery

The seats full of penlights that I see from the stage. No matter how many times I see it I still think it’s beautiful. The shape of the penlights is made by the venue so each one is different.

Keyword 15- Event

Fireworks. Just seeing the posters advertising the event makes me happy.

Keyword 16- Girls’ habit

When they’re boiling pasta and they taste one strand to check how cooked it is.

Keyword 17- Word

“Powerful” and “bizarre”. I guess they’re words that make me think of anime. They’re strange and positive, and I love that when you say them they fill you with energy.

Keyword 18- Part of myself

My Achilles tendon. When I was in elementary school it was slim and muscly and I would get praised for it.

Keyword 19- Animal

I like watching fox videos. The scenes where they dig holes, hide, jump, they’re so cute. They have more of a mystery to them than cats or dogs, I can’t stand it.

Keyword 20- JUMP

The fact that our atmosphere has never changed. We’re noisy because we’re no good.

Takaki Yuya

The Yearly JUMP Christmas Present Exchange

Last year I got an AI smart speaker, every year it’s something that I would never have imagined. It would be good if I could get something interesting that I would never buy myself this year too.

Keyword 1- Flavour

Natto. I like eating it just as it is but, I also like when it’s mixed into curry.

Keyword 2- Clothes

The white t-shirts that I buy all the time. They’re easy to coordinate and useful to have. Because I’m not really fussy I even buy the ones from the convenience store but, because I hate it being tight around my neck, I always buy a v neck!

Keyword 3- Season

Summer. Because there’s a lot of fun events, and it’s a time that makes a lot of people smile.

Keyword 4- Smell

Grapefruit I guess, I like refreshing, citrus scents. I don’t use it myself but, when I smell it on someone else in the street I respond to it without even thinking.

Keyword 5- Place

When I want to relax I generally go to Shonan. It’s a place that reminds me of my youth.

Keyword 6- Johnny’s Song

“Sekai ni hitotsu dake no hana”. (The only single flower in the world) You would always hear it on sports day when I was in elementary and middle school, and at the time it would be playing in all kinds of different places. I think it’s the Johnny’s song that I have heard the most in my life.

Keyword 7- Colour

The character on the tv programme I liked was purple so, it’s been my colour of choice ever since I was little.

Keyword 8- Person

My mother. Because she knows me better than I know myself, whenever I’m feeling lost I can talk to her about it. She always gives me advice that I can relate to.

Keyword 9- Time

Evening. When daylight fades and it gets dark at the same time, I love gazing at the streets that are bright but not too bright. I can picture all the mothers getting dinner ready.

Keyword 10- Number

Since they’re the same as my birthday it’s 3 and 26, they’re easy to remember so I just ended up choosing them now.

Keyword 11- Sound

The sound of a car or motorbike engine. The sound changes depending on the different type of car model, just hearing it makes me feel excited. I also like driving without any music playing so I can enjoy the sound of the car.

Keyword 12- Sport

Basketball I guess. I started because of my big sisters’ influence. I played when I was in elementary and middle school.

Keyword 13- Movie

Cameron Diaz’s “The Holiday”. The Christmas time streetscape is great.

Keyword 16- Girls’ habit

After she takes off her motorbike helmet. and hair’s all messy.

Keyword 17- Word

“Fun”. No matter what if it’s fun I want to try it, and when I do something for someone and they say “It’s fun” it makes me happy. Doing this, I want to be with people who show their feelings honestly.

Keyword 18- Part of myself

People tell me that I have long legs but, I have absolutely no interest in my own body.

Keyword 19- Animal

For whatever reason I’ve always liked horses. Not that I’ve ever ridden one but, when I notice one I get curious and can’t take my eyes off it. Because I was  born in the year of the horse maybe I can communicate with them (lol).

Keyword 20- JUMP

The fact that we can just be ourselves. Because we understand each other, we can relax.

Inoo Kei

The Yearly JUMP Christmas Present Exchange

The present I got last year… I forgot (lol). But, the luck-of-the-drawer feeling of not knowing who you’re getting a present from every year is fun.

Keyword 1- Flavour

I like natto. I can’t remember since when I started to like it but, I ate it every day in high school. It’s good for your health, everyone should eat it every day.

Keyword 2- Clothes

I’ve loved hoodies since I was a kid. The ones with snug hoods are the best.

Keyword 3- Season

Because the weather is nice and it feels good, I like Summer. When it’s hot it’s hot but, because it’s Summer it’s got a good feeling to it. I like the beach and mountains so in Summer it makes me want to go there.

Keyword 4- Smell

Sweet smells. I like the sweet smell of fruit, or the smell of the perfume girls wear.

Keyword 5- Place

My bath I guess. When I take my time and soak in the tub, all my exhaustion from the day and stress melts away. It’s a place I can relax in while I stare off into space, it’s very important to me of course.

Keyword 6- Johnny’s Song

I’ve liked Kinki Kids’ “Ai no katamari” (Ball of love) since the first time I heard it.

Keyword 7- Colour

If I have to say something, then I like blue. Because it’s my member colour I guess. Rather than always liking it, it feels like I have gradually come to like it though.

Keyword 8- Person

The actor Oizumi Yo. I’ve been watching his videos and movies since I was a kid.

Keyword 9- Time

The time that is the most fun is when I’m eating dinner with my friends, talking about all kinds of things.

Keyword 10- Number

I don’t have a favourite number! Since I don’t think I really relate things to numbers I don’t have a lucky number. As for me and numbers I always want them to be even.

Keyword 11- Sound

When I’m relaxing I like the feel of gentle sounds like the wind and rain.

Keyword 12- Sport

Since I’ve always been bad at sports there are none that I like playing but, I like to watch. Since soccer and sports become topical every now and then I always watch them.

Keyword 13- Movie

I like “ONE PIECE” that I’ve been reading since I was in elementary school. It’s a “there’s no-one that hasn’t heard of it” level masterpiece, it’s fun wondering how it will end.

Keyword 14- Scenery

The scenery of Jiufen in Taiwan that was said to be the model for the “Spirited Away” movie.

Keyword 16- Girls’ habit

There’s no specific thing that I would say “I like this habit” about. Is it really ok to say things like “That’s what suits that person” or “That feels girly”?

Keyword 17- Word

When I say “itadakimasu!” (t/n: Thank-you for the food) I want to express my gratitude for the food with these special words!

Keyword 18- Part of myself

My hands I guess. That is my long, pale fingers. When people look at my hands they say “You’ve got long fingers”, so of course when I look at them I say “I do” (lol). Not that I’m bragging though.

Keyword 19- Animal

I love them all! Even now people say I’m a “cat person”, so of course I like cats.

Keyword 20- JUMP

All of the members are individual, while we’re working together we also work on our own solo jobs, when all of us are together our full power comes out. That’s the JUMP I love!

Yaotome Hikaru

The Yearly JUMP Christmas Present Exchange

I feel like for some reason this year there are going to be a lot of household appliances and latest electronics. I want a water carbonator. The thing I think I’d want to give and receive is headphones!

Keyword 1- Flavour

It’s absolutely, salt. When I have chicken skewers or offal skewers I always prefer salt to sauce! I often have a salt based soup in my hotpot too.

Keyword 2- Clothes

I love pyjamas. I choose ones that are comfortable to wear. I wear LL size ones that don’t come off even when I toss and turn in my sleep. At the moment my favourites are a pair of sweat pants.

Keyword 3- Season

Winter. I was born in Winter, I prefer the cold to the heat. Getting into the bath on a cold day is the best.

Keyword 4- Smell

The calming smell of lavender. My mother has generally always used lavender. So it’s obvious to me, and maybe I still like it even now.

Keyword 5- Place

Miyagi. Matsushima and South Sanriku are really nice places. It’s a place where you can enjoy both the mountains and the sea.

Keyword 6- Johnny’s Song

Kinki Kids’ “Boku no senaka ni wa hane ga aru” (There are wings on my back). Because I back-up danced for it, it’s left a strong impression as a song I like. For me, there is no song with a better intro than this one!

Keyword 7- Colour

Blue. But there isn’t a single thing in my place that is blue (lol). I like to look at it more than I like to wear it.

Keyword 8- Person

Of course, it’s B’z Inaba Koshi. I haven’t changed since I was little, I’m a fan even now! When we appeared with them on “Music Station”, I said that I liked Inaba-san.

Keyword 9- Time

The moment when the day is over and I go home, and lie down in my bed. It’s the time that I can relax my body and soul and really think “I gave it my best today too~”.

Keyword 10- Number

8. Coz there’s and 8 in Yaotome (t/n: ya = 8) But I don’t choose it that often (lol).

Keyword 11- Sound

The sound of bass I guess. I like when I play it myself too but, usually when I listen to any song, I unconsciously end up listening carefully for the low sounds of the bass and drums.

Keyword 12- Sport

Figure skating. I think it’s the sport that I watch the most seriously.

Keyword 13- Movie

Studio Ghibli’s “Spirited Away” was the first movie that I saw twice at the cinema.

Keyword 14- Scenery

Five Colour Lake in Miyagi. I went there when I was little but, I was surprised to hear that on really beautiful days it changes colour. Since I haven’t been since I grew up, I haven’t seen it yet.

Keyword 15- Event

Concerts. Because it’s the place I grew up in, it’s the place I can breathe. I love the moment that we come out on stage.

Keyword 16- Girls’ habit

When she ties her hair back. But that’s about the only habit I know (lol).

Keyword 17- Word

I keep in mind that the word I can say at any time and to anyone is “thank-you”. Since I was little, my parents have taught me to speak politely.

Keyword 18- Part of myself

My hands. Because they’re big, and my fingers are long they’re useful for all kinds of activities (lol).

Keyword 19- Animal

I like dogs. The breed I especially like at the moment is mameshiba! When I saw them in a tv show, they were too cute and they looked like you could just gobble them up (lol)! They’re so healing.

Keyword 20- JUMP

I like our school boy energy. Using that energy, watching over each other, it’s always fun.

Yabu Kota

The Yearly JUMP Christmas Present Exchange

Everyone decides on the budget, and seriously chooses something they would like. Last year, I got a hot plate from Inoo-chan and I used it when I was making teppanyaki!

Keyword 1- Flavour

Egg rice I guess. I think it has a strong image as a breakfast food but, I love eating it for dinner when I’m really hungry. It’s the best with just a tiny bit of soy sauce on top of the egg!

Keyword 2- Clothes

A comfortable sized hoodie. Now I’m an adult I like tight jumpers.

Keyword 3- Season

Autumn I guess. Walking around near the park on location filming but, the ginko trees that line the streets with their Autumn colours have a great aesthetic. It’s come to have this faint sentimental feeling (lol).

Keyword 4- Smell

The smell of the cyprus rooms that is often at the bath house. Why is it that it helps me feel calm?

Keyword 5- Place

My home station. The moment I arrive this “I’m home” feeling breaks out, it’s like a feeling I can’t describe.

Keyword 6- Johnny’s Song

I love the hand movements in the chorus of “Kanashimi Blue” (Sad and Blue). I remember all of the choreography.

Keyword 7- Colour

U~m, maybe blue? It’s not like I have a lot of blue things but, it’s calming somehow. Rather than the colourful light blue of tropical countries, a bit of a quiet, deep blue is nicer.

Keyword 8- Person

I like Sakai Masato’s acting. Every time I see a movie or drama with him I can’t take my eyes away.

Keyword 9- Time

Once I’ve finished my bath and brushing my teeth and everything and I get in bed, and go to sleep.

Keyword 10- Number

When I’m playing soccer my player number is 7. It was unexpectedly given to me as a participant number but, I felt like it was fate getting my “Lucky 7”.

Keyword 11- Sound

The sound when I take the plug out of my bath, that glug glug sound of draining water (lol).

Keyword 12- Sport

I like watching it and playing it, soccer! For example, even if you don’t know the rules when you watch it, it has this unique charm where people can empathise with the players and get drawn in.

Keyword 13- Movie

The first Ghibli movie I saw, “Princess Mononoke”. It was a bit scary when I was a kid but, I was able to see it in a new light when I became an adult, and there were even scenes that made me cry.

Keyword 14- Scenery

The night sky that I gazed at with Yuto on our way home from seeing “The Miracles of the Namiya General Store”.

Keyword 15- Event

The hand rolled sushi parties at my parents’ house. We’ve always often done it when it was someone’s birthday but, while everyone was having fun, I liked making hand rolled sushi with the fillings that I liked.

Keyword 16- Girls’ habit

Going from a full on smile to an unexpected serious face (lol). Like the second after a shop assistant finishes saying “Thank-you”, and she switches back to her normal self.

Keyword 17- Word

The one that often comes out of my mouth is “It’s ok”. It fills anyone with confidence.

Keyword 18- Part of myself

My sharp, pointy canine teeth. Since I was little, whenever there haven’t been any scissors nearby I’ve been able to use my teeth to cut things like thread (lol). I’m a bit wild aren’t I?

Keyword 19- Animal

Stag beetles. There’s a lot of people who like rhinoceros beetles but, their pincers are cute.

Keyword 20- JUMP

How everyone likes everyone. When all the members are together for group work we don’t stop saying things like “Did you change your hair?” and “Those clothes are new, right”.
