You are really an ice-breaker model. ‘Lee Jung Shin is a real model’ making people confused of that statement.
Haha. Really? My height is just a bit tall so there a say like that. First time in my career I did a health screening. My height is growing. 188,3cm. Now it’s left 1,7cm to reach 190cm, I don’t want to grow anymore because I am giving my waist herd more.
How will you give herd?
‘If I give herd to my muscle, I won’t grow anymore right? With that thoughts I exercise harder.
When you have a day for your free time, what are you doing?
In a day without schedule, I am just drinking coffee alone at home and do lots of thinking about this and that. I am planning what I will do next. I like listening to hard-core music.
What kind of music you mainly listen?
I liked Pop music. I also liked Coldplay like genre and listening to lots of band music. I also search for K-Pop no.1 songs on chart and often listen to any kind of songs I’ve found.
The way you turn over the fry-pan just now looks different. Did you enjoy cooking?
Aa, I always good at turning over the pan like this. Somehow because now I live with my own brother, we often cook what we want to eat. Although it’s just fried rice or egg dish but there is a basic for everything. We’re not that good but we enjoyed it much. When people that I gave my dish ate it deliciously I am feeling proud. This is how mother’s feel? Haha.
We’re following your twitter. Looks like you like to update a lovely daily look. We have fun looking at it.
I didn’t know why people enjoy SNS that much at first. Previously football coach Ferguson posted this ‘SNS is a waste of life’. I also felt motion of that words, but nowadays it really a SNS time and I don’t want to do it alone and I felt that I have to do the same thing too. And so I started twitter and it was fun. There I am bound and when I feel it I do some update too. Sometimes when man posted their selca I was just like, ‘What’s wrong with him’. Now that I am posting the same thing, I becoming them. Haha. However it will look it might be prejudice only.
But everytime celebrities posted something in SNS once, it become one article with one photo and also reported and feeling a bit inconvenience.
Of course, long time ago I don’t have that star thoughts and just posted a photos, also update what I want to write but now I have to think what kind of side I wanted to show. I also have to make sure each word I want to post first. That what I see, words that saves you later.
Do you also following other SNS?
I followed fashion brand Valentino and fashion photographers. Because I have high interest in fashion and photography. Moreover I don’t have much interest in other celeb on SNS.
In 2010, you were debuted as singer in CNBLUE and started your activities at 20, now you’ve become 25, on top of that besides being a singer also an actor. Is there any difference between now and then?
Somehow, right now I become mature than before. Of course I am thinking to grow more in the future but I still don’t know. What I will learn, what experience will I got that were a lot and now I becoming an adult. I think that the time when I started acting was my life’s turning point. Debuting as CNBLUE and carrying singer activities, it always been a dream for me to act. And finally a perfect chance came to start, and I love to carry on activities as an actor. Acting is really fun and I want to do it more.
Your last drama <Thank You, Son> a rebellious temperament repeater role, ‘cheeky’ you received praised because you did well portraying your role. What is the secret to deepen your character like that? Is there any side that is similar to your real character?
Of course not. I did a throughout research to the character and I also imagine to live as that person too. On the spot, I asked the director, writer, and others also staffs I asked them a lot on how this character should act. I attempted this and that to fit the character. I love it and happily did the role.
As we see you act, do you ever thought ‘I feeling suitable in this field’?
I don’t have that much confidence now and I still don’t know, but one thing for sure is that I love acting. I think this was what I want to do much in the future.
The more you like to act, the more you see people who worked in this field. Looking at other production, I want to do that kind of acting. Do you ever feel that way?
I really like Kimura Takuya. I fell in love at first sight? Drama <Pride>.<Hero><Hundreds Millions Stars from The Sky> through that drama production Kimura Takuya character really showing his charms. So these days I learn to act more. Later when I am older and acting to that character, I will be feeling happiness.
It’s already half way of your twenties and soon will reach thirties, do you ever think about that? What kind of man do you want to be?
I want to be a man who knows loyalty and love. I had lots of flaws and good at grabs around people and it will be great if I discover people’s flaws and engage more. It will be cool to age to be that kind of man.
In the recent interview you said that it’s been so long since your last relationship and you already had vague memory of it. In fact now is the season. Don’t you like the idea of relationship?
Of course I want to be in a relationship. Especially when I was alone at home, the thoughts come by. But I don’t really think that relationship is the most important thing right now. ‘Till now works come first, I am not the type to delay work to go dating. When the time come, I will do it.
What kind of woman that you want to meet and date?
In the past, a pale looking girl, in similar concrete way I have that kind of type, but nowadays it changed. The person who I can talk to is the most important thing now. It will be great if when we were together, we are able to talk and forget about our work for a moment.
Is there a time when you fallen into woman?
There was a time when I fall to that person’s charm during a talk once. I don’t know but I fell for that person’s thoughts, speech, and eyes at that time. At first I don’t attracted to her and through conversation and suddenly, ‘Oo, I am looking at a woman’ I think I have that kind of experience few times.
If you have a girlfriend on this year’s spring, what kind of date do you want to do?
I knew I can’t do it, but I want to do it. Meeting in the morning to have breakfast together, watching movies, going to cafe, and send her home. I really want to try that general kind of date. Men will like, ‘Aaa, I did that every single day and it’s boring’ but don’t you think it will make it more special? Since I cannot do it in usual.
