This is a long interview. I’ll upload it for now and post my twitter compilation here for now.
Sina interview: SG says he could’ve starved to death if he didn’t become a celebrity. Say his ddukbokki is really delicious & would like a chance to make it for others,really likes Chinese cuisine, just had some last night,but can’t eat it everyday because he will gain weight.
SG thinks Chinese Running Man seems fun. Unexpectedly found many ballad songs in Chinese music. Would like to work with Fan BingBing. There are many distinguished Chinese directors. Would like to work with them. I think that I made an album worth keeping in one’s collection. I couldn’t show you my singer side due to acting throughout the year. (YAAS & Love Forecast)
There are many songs of my personal taste in the album but “And Goodbye” is a song that gives off the feel of “this is the title song”. SG: It’s the easiest song for the public to listen to. Compared to past ballads, it’s very rhythmical & inside the lyrics, it is emotional. Please look forward to an upgraded work from me. I’m getting many drama offers. I’m looking for a different image. In my future work,I would like to play a character that shows a different side from me. Like a villain. Many people say that people w/upright image who plays a villain is scary. If that opportunity arises, I would like to take it up.
SG: I exercise daily because my body is the type that gains weight easily. I go to the dermatologist to take care of my looks, watch movies. When I work on a project, I meet many composers, play many instruments, I think I do a lot of learning. Other than that, I dine out, drink..I really like Chinese food but if I ate it everyday, I’d gain weight. I regularly eat it on special days.
I would like to open a weibo account. I am inexperienced at managing SNS so I hope my agency can take care of it. I think I will open one when I am active in China. I would like a chance to have a live fan meeting or concert. Also hope to see many contents in China. Think Running Man is very entertaining. Unexpectedly, China has many songs that have similar emotions like my songs. I thought only dance songs were popular.
Even though there is a large age gap, there are many actresses I like ~ Zhao Wei, Gong Li, & Zhang ZiYi. Learning basic Chinese~ Chinese nicknames for him lost in translation ~ why am I called a steam bun? I’m curious. Sounds friendly. Nothing is set in stone but can promise you that I will meet you with new contents. Thanks. Good bye!
