1

 

Jung Ilwoo, Ahn Jaehyun, Lee Jungshin (CNBLUE), Choi Min, and young actress Park Sodam appeared on a drama that has become a hot topic, “Cinderella and The Four Knights <Knight>”. To celebrate the DVD release this spring, “Cinderella and The Four Knights <Knight>” DVD event was held on Saturday, July 22nd at Sumitomo Real Estate Shibuya Garden Tower.

 

By the invitation of the moderator, Lee Jungshin, who wore a stylish casual fashion with Ahn Jae Hyun, who dressed in an olive-colored shirt, were stand out and appeared on the stage which makes the fans’ cheers risen.

 

Q. Please greet everyone first.

Jaehyun: Hello. I’m Ahn Jaehyun. I’m looking forward to meet you.

Jungshin: Hello. I’m Jungshin. Thank you so much for coming today.

 

Q. Although it’s a DVD event of “Cinderella and The Four Knights <Knight>” which has been released in April, how are you feeling now?

Jaehyun: There are so many fans of Jungshin (laugh). But, thank you so much for coming today.

Jungshin: I’m really happy. It’s like a feeling when I took a drama for the first time in a year.

 

Q. When did you two come to Japan?

Jaehyun: We came here by the same plane yesterday at around 11PM.

 

Q. Jungshin just finished a fan meeting few days ago.

Jungshin: It was my first solo fan meeting. I had a really good time, I went back to Korea for a while, and here I am come back again with this promotion.

Q. I think Jaehyun has started to shoot a new drama “Reunited World”, does the shooting doing good?

Jaehyun: I’m doing my best in filming my new drama, but I’m glad that there’s an opportunity to meet Japanese fans like this. I really happy because I think this is the first time I see/meet my fans again since “M COUNTDOWN”. While watching the clip of the drama flowing on the scene, I looked back at the story behind it’s filming and the episode at that time.

 

Q. At first, there were scenes where three of you, Jiwoon, Hyunmin, and Seowoo appeared riding a car, how was it to play/portray the life of a chaebol?

Jaehyun: It was a lot of fun. On the scene where three of us appeared for the first time, it was Jungshin who was the tallest on it, so I think it was a scene that might protect us from the back a little cooler *protect them because Jungshin is the tallest XD*

Jungshin: Looking at the previous appearance scene, I think that it would’ve been better if Jung Ilwoo sunbae was with me.

Jaehyun: The military service period still remains for about one and a half year (laugh)

 

Q. Hyunmin was set as a sloppy person to a woman, what did you do to create/make that role?

Jaehyun: AHAHAHA (laugh). It was very difficult. I got a lot of advice from great men around me and those who have had a lot of experience in love.

 

Q. Seowoo is set as a popular artist, does that mean Jungshin no need to create/make a role for it while you usually having activities with CNBLUE (as a popular artist)?

Jungshin: When I first heard about the role of Seowoo, I thought that there are many similarities (of him), such as my tone of voice and my usual appearance(s). When I do acting, I play/portray it in a slight more enjoyable tone than I usually do, I thought that natural feeling is best rather than have to create/make a role.

 

3

 

Q. Are there any episode(s) which has a scene where all casts are complete?

Jungshin: I think there are many scenes where actors gather in this drama. The scene where we play together was fun, since the age gap between us were close, I enjoyed the filming.

Jaehyun: Jungshin had been thinking a lot about ad lib.

Jungshin: Was that so? (LOL)

Jaehyun: Jungshin really has a sense of humor.

 

Q. In the scene where Seowoo’s mother came up to meet him, it’s very impressive that it looks like (both are) good friends, but did you talk about something before you’re about to act together?

Jungshin: I was glad that I’m able to see Lee Ah Hyeon *actress who acts as his mother* as a mother role this time, in a short drama I appeared before she also played a mother role of mine. My breath was perfect, and my senior can take the lead, so it was fun when filming.

 

Q. Do you usually have a feeling like this with your mother?

Jungshin: Not as friendly as in drama, but our relationships are very good. But I don’t do “chu~” (LOL)

 

Q. On the scene where Hyunmin depressed because of Hawon, I wonder if the leaves are prepared by the production team or is it an ad lib?

Jaehyun: Of course, it was prepared by the production team, its written on the script. I think there was a part where the situation must be exaggerated and I performed it just more into me *more into his style/his own way*. When I was a child, I used to be good in plucking leaves, I wonder about child nowadays. I don’t know even a little (about child nowadays) (LOL)

 

4

 

Q. I saw there was a scene where Seowoo said sharp words from fans, does Jungshin sometimes make lyrics based on what he experienced?

Jungshin: Sometimes I write based on what I’ve experienced, whether its direct or indirect (experience), sometimes I may imagine or exaggerate it.

Jaehyun: (looking at the paper where the handwritten lyrics was written) Is this Jungshin’s letter?

Jungshin: No, I think this isn’t mine, but the producer’s (LOL)

 

Q. How did you manage to play/portray the scene of Hyunmin and Hyeji?

Jaehyun: I really like Hyeji, he looks like an adolescent boy who has his own favorite (friend), I strongly tried to express for having a cold attitude since I don’t want my feelings to be known.

Jungshin: It was a bad guy for a reason (LOL)

 

Q. Next one is about the scene where Hyunmin and Seowoo were having a negotiation, it’s very interesting, but did you two talks about acting (outside filming)?

Jaehyun: Of course, having a beautiful scene with an actress is also good, but I can (also) enjoy (for having) such a negotiation between men (actors). I think it will be good if there were more negotiation like that (on the scene).

Jungshin: On that scene, I think there were quite a lot of my ad libs rather than the script one.

Jaehyun: It’s also a scene where each of our characters appeared well. Seowoo is gentle/kind, with a role to cook/making dishes, and I think that Hyunmin is represented as the one who try to solve anything with money.

 

Q. At the end, what kind of work do you think this drama about?

Jaehyun: I watched a lot of cartoons and animations when I was kid, but I think this drama could be represents/reproduce as the world of girls’ manga.

Jungshin: I think this drama has that romance (feels) and a little bit like manga. Of course, I’m not 100% satisfied, but there are parts that I think I could have done better, but I really enjoyed the filming. I guess I feel more comfortable playing in a casual drama rather than a drama that has something like a deep meaning.

 

5

 

Next is a quiz corner to know more about these two people. They also talked about some episodes with their co-stars and their own personal parts.

 

Q. I like to see a woman smile

Jaehyun:

Jungshin:

 

Q. It’s going to be on fire/hot/competitive on winning the game.

Jaehyun: ×

I like peace. So, it’s very good now (to be like this on the game)

Jungshin: ×

Me too. It’s good to be peaceful and calm. It’s such a principle.

 

Q. I have a certain favorite style to be worn by women.

Jaehyun: ×

If a girl wears clothes based on her mood, I think it’d be better.

Jungshin:

I think a style like turtleneck and thin scarf is cute.

Jaehyun: Then it can’t be easily seen in the summer (laughs)

 

Q. I’ll notice when a woman looks different from usual

Jaehyun:

It’s pretty good to see something different from usual. I’m going to say “Do you cut your bangs?”, and I’ll let he heard the reason why I cut my bangs (LOL)

Jungshin: ×

I don’t even know whether my face is swollen or not.

Jaehyun: As expected, cool people don’t mind about that kind of thing (laughs)

Jungshin: AHAHAHA (LOL) I always ask “Does my face swollen?” to make-up artists and staffs before work. I’m a man after all, sometimes I don’t care about such things, but there are parts that are insensitive/insensible to small changes.

 

Q. In fact, I’m good at cooking and there are some cuisines that I can make it well.

Jaehyun:

I’m confident about any dishes that use fire *could be fried food or such*. It’s because I went to a cooking school before. I learned the basics of Korean food. I think Japanese cuisine is more delicious in restaurant, so I didn’t study it (laughs)

Jungshin:

Since I was living in a dormitory with my members, I guess I cook more than men do in regular. But I’m happy to see the manager and other members eat my dish deliciously. Grilled meat, miso soup, and kimchi fried rice are simple and easy to be made. I want to go to cooking school in the future. I’d like to ask for a school recommendation from Jaehyun hyung (laughs).

Jaehyun: In fact, there was a dish where I have to handle the fish in the school, it was fade out to the machine. I was really afraid to take out the internal organs (laughs).

 

6

 

Q. Who was faster to switch (personality) from on and off screen?

Jaehyun: Ahn Jaehyun

Jungshin had been properly analyzing and took a picture of the prepared scene (during filming)

Jungshin: Ahn Jaehyun

The image of Ahn Jaehyun as a character on the drama and his original appearance(s) are different, attentive to everyone (staffs), polite and I think that it’s a way to approach them. Although I thought that there was also a hard part to start approaching an older senior, but in fact it’s not a problem and they all are very kind.

 

Q. Who has the closest connection to their role?

Jaehyun: Choi Min

It was a really cool role, I think he was made to play that role.

Jungshin: Choi Min

There are some funny parts that seems to be missing a bit, but his usual appearance was really similar to the role.

 

Q. Who is supposed to be the real Knight?

Jaehyun: Lee Jungshin

Seowoo was trying to protect someone he really loves and throw away the honor. I thought that a Knight is the one who would protect the bonds with the loved ones rather than to work. I thought that there are parts that similar to the real Jungshin (in real life), and I choose the romantic part.

Jungshin: Ahn Jaehyun

Hyunmin will protect Hyeji who he loved since first until the end. There was a part where everything can be solved with money, but actually the best way is to protect her. Hyunmin only know to solve (everything) with money, so when he did (something for Hyeji without money), he devoted himself to keep the loved ones, so I thought that’s a Knight.

In addition, a surprise cake was prepared for Ahn Jaehyun who celebrate his birthday on July 1st. He thanked fans at the event and said, “I had a chance with you all to celebrate my birthday like this by the prepared event, so I thought I have to work harder. I hope I’ll have a chance to meet the fans again in the next work/project. And I hope I can be a co-star again together with Jungshin”.

“Thank you so much for supporting “Cinderella and The Four Knights” as of today. I’m happy to see you all in such a wonderful event. Please support (our) future activities as well. I’d be happy to take care of myself so that I can meet you all again”, said Jungshin showing his feelings word by word politely in Japanese.

Ahn Jaehyun and Lee Jungshin are good friends just like real brothers. A mutual relationship that began to grow through a drama was brought up to such a heartwarming event.

[TRANS] Lee Jungshin on “Cinderella and The Four Knights” Casts’ Interview by Kstyle Japan

img-c6af5d5de41b5f94899a6d3e6e319a9a

— From December 22nd, “Cinderella and The Four Knights” will be broadcasted. Please show us your impression towards this drama to be broadcasted in Japan

Jungshin : Since I want to have communication with fans, so I’m more into SNS. Japanese fans even watched the drama while it’s being broadcasted in South Korea, they even cheered us a lot. But after all I’m happy that it will be broadcasted in Japan. I think it’s a good opportunity to see myself as an actor, other than a singer. “Cinderella and The Four Knights” is a drama that may give you a light heart attack. Many people wrote on my SNS “it’s a drama that has such affection yet I can’t stop watching it”. I think it’s an attractive drama that will become addictive once you watch it!

— What made you want to appear in this drama?

Jungshin : Since the characters’ theme of this drama is about young age, I felt that its interesting. I’m not like other actors who have appeared in so many works but I’ve appeared on five drama so far. Even though this work can be done easily by an older people, but still, it’s also a “youth-romance-things” drama which targets young people. I’m 26 years old now, I thought about “When there’s a chance to appear in a drama before I’m getting older, what would it be?”, so I thought about a bright drama! That was the thought and the reason on why I want to do this work.

— What kind of characters did you play?

Jungshin : From what I saw it’s simply a bright character with positive energy. There was a time when I was worried about “how can I make it on my own (way)?” for this character, but the answer is unexpected. It was said that there are many parts that’s similar with my own figure (in real life). I’m also a bright type, but there are also times when I occasionally can become negative, but I’m basically the positive one. Later after I noticed that I can resemble (the character) as myself, I was able to relax and acts as “Lee Jung Shin”. I’m not that rich (chaebol) person (LOL), but since I’m being an entertainer and a singer…there are many things in common. There are a lot of parts where the word I spoke (in the drama) is similar to the word that I speak to myself, so I thought maybe it could make me grow for 1 or 2 stages…?

— I have a question for Lee Jung Shin. When Kang Seo Woo appeared dressing up like a woman, it was pretty impressive. But from your point of view, do you think when Seo Woo dressed up like a girl looks good?

Jungshin : I guess you could laugh because it wasn’t fit nor suitable at all, but I was pretty uneasy about that scene~! I have a thick legs hair… (LOL) Is it called “Ashige (in Japanese)?” I’m still good with my thick legs hair, but my legs are thin like a woman. So, it looks like a hairy woman legs, I guess fans will be disappointed…. For people who had expected for a solid/firm man thighs…I’m sorry but I’m here with my thin legs (LOL).

 img-79b0e67bbe8e3cd54792673b52a82a49

— On the drama, Kang Seo Woo wrote “Confession” and “You Pour a Star” for Eun Ha Won who played by Park So Dam, but which song does Jungshin himself got attached more from those two?

Jungshin : Hmmm…if I have to choose one from two maybe “Confession”. I felt great to be able to participate in the OST with two songs “Confession” and “You Pour a Star”. I’ve never participated in the OST of the drama I’m playing, but with this drama I was able to challenge myself for the first time, and fans were pleased (delighted)! Even in CNBLUE activities I’ve never sung any part other than chorus, but it seemed like there are some who wants to hear my voice more (LOL). I feel like my heart is full when people saying “I was glad to hear your voice”.

— On this drama, there are many actors who has the same age, how was the atmosphere on the shooting site?

Jungshin : So far, all of the shooting sites on dramas that I’ve appeared have nice atmosphere, but shooting sites for this drama was also really good. We’re close even with the younger, same age, or older actors…. Kim Yong Gun senior was there, and he really has that kind of sense. When I knew that there is a senior, I thought that I’m going to feel awkward, but Yong Gun senior is a very funny person and loves to throw some jokes, so it was fun to have a shoot (for the drama).

— What kind of work does “Cinderella and The Four Knights” casts do?

Jungshin : Even though I’m more into a singer, but I also work as an actor, and this work is the 5th for me, I felt that I was able to make a step forward as an actor. Of course, there are parts that I regret, some parts that seems fine/successful, I have various thoughts on it, even after it all ends, the regret still remain. But, you can’t grow without regrets! Even during my activities with CNBLUE, we did the tour and its DVD released six months after the tour ended, although there are parts that I think it’s cool even if I watched it, but there are also some parts that I think weren’t that good. But, it become a noticeable evidence that I’m growing on that six months. I said this because at some point you can improve further more the good ones, like you can see it by your own eyes looking on it and say it to yourself “don’t do this in the future” (for the not-so-good part). For me this work is like “a step forward of the growing process” and “an important experience”.

— Please tell the ‘watching point’ to the Japanese viewers who have been looking forward into “Cinderella and The Four Knights”.

Jungshin : Even the point of a heart-throbbing part between male and female may vary to each person and depends on the country itself, but I hope Korean “heart-attack” (heart-throbbing) point will be wide-spread to Japan! Also, to fans who said that they like me (LOL), from now on, even if you can’t see this drama on any websites or else on internet, as long as you can see it through TV easily, I also feel happy. Even to all my fans who have watched over me from my debut on 2009, I hope you can relax while enjoying it (the drama).

Are there likes and differences between Yonghwa and Sejoo?

Yonghwa: Sejoo is the person in the chaebol and I am not. (Laugh) We have some similarities. First, we have similar characteristics, like cheerful and work hard. Next, we can consider a business and own private time separately.

Did you get some advises or requests from a scriptwriter or a director for this character?

Yonghwa: A scriptwriter and a director made a character along with us. And they said ‘Do what you want’. So I could act that I feel by reading the script, so I got high appreciation. It’s not a meaning that I made this drama myself, but I feel I made digested this character myself. I‘m happy in this point.

Sejoo and Mirae’s level of living seemed different. What is the reason that Sejoo was attracted to Mirae?

Yonghwa: The principal reason for it… Sejoo and Mirae met in Seju island though, I think Sejoo feel her freedom. Sejoo seems the free bird person, but he is the heir, there are not work out the way he wants. So Sejoo was attracted to Mirae at first glance. And then he knows about her while he gets his eye on her. He will become more and more loving her.

Yonghwa: I think both of them are charming if they would add and divide by two.

We heard that the best popular scene in Japan is sharing a blanket with Mirae. What the scene that you were impressed ’till you shot?

Yonghwa: The scene that was I remembered that …the scene that I crushed on Mirae in Jeju island. The scene that seeing her going into the sea and go crushed on her was very impressive. And the scene that we are listening the music and in the record room was also the same.

Do you have some behind the story? Like the story of funny or terrible…

Yonghwa: Lee Donggun-seonbae and I are belong to same entertainment agency. One day, when the car that I ride on was at a gas station, a familiar car was coming. Because I thought that was Lee Donggun-seonbae’s car, I got out of my car and said hello. But it was a kind of Korean mafia’s car. I was surprised and Shouted “go” to my manager.

Were they chase behind you?

Yonghwa: No, they weren’t.

Did you talk with Lee Donggun-ssi while shooting?

Yonghwa: Yes we did. We talked lots. He have taken care and led me from the first of this drama. I learned lots from him.

You co-starred with Yoon Eunhye-ssi, Han Chaeah-ssi and Lee donggun-ssi, did their image change?

Yonghwa: Lee Donggun-seonbae is a calm, slow-speaking man. Of course, if he has something funny, he enjoyed it. He is the person that I thought. I like him.
Yoon Eunhye-ssi is also seonbae as a singer. Before I meet her, I thought she might a strict woman, but in fact, she is not. She takes care around her well and is really cheerful . She cheered up the drama crew.
Han Chaeah-ssi and I had uncomfortable atmosphere first, but now we are close and we share jokes. She is funny. I want to work together again.

The drama that you appear has something to do with music, but in this drama, you don’t have such connection, because this role was the heir of the chaebol. So we wonder that you had a hard time to shooting.

Yonghwa: I didn’t mean to appear only to a drama that has music as background. Because I am the musician, I didn’t want to act similar role. All the more I was attracted this drama, I thought Sejoo is the role that I wanted to act. Since I was confident acting this role, I decided to appear to this drama.

Great. Personally, what do you think about the end of this story? What kind of end do you want?

Yonghwa: I think it’s better as the viewer’s hope. How about we ask the viewers to vote for it? I think it’s fun.

“After 25 years… I want to live a happy life”

As same as drama, if you could meet yourself in the past, when and what advice do you want to do? Or do you have questions for yourself in the past?

Yonghwa: I really satisfied with myself now, and I don’t want to change anything. I know it is lucky for me. But if it’ll happen something bad in the future, I want to change it.

Kim Shin is your serious rival, though, what is Park Sejoo’s allure that he only have?

Yonghwa: Well… Park Sejoo takes care around than Kim Shin. Kim Shin does not express his feeling, but Sejoo actually express it. This is the difference between them.

Your favorite things are singer and actor?

Yonghwa: Yes.

What is the attractiveness as an actor, not as a musician?

Yonghwa: An actor would be express the other person through my body. It could be a person that is more attractive than me. It is the challenge as an actor that to act the attractive character that is different from me.

This time, this drama was shot in parallel with CNBLUE’s concert tour, it was hard for you, right? How do you overcome this hard schedule? How is your way to distress?

Yonghwa: Nothing special. To sleep during a spare time, it is the best for me. And a concert is special. Even though I am very tired, I am energized about a concert.

How about to drink water or to take some vitamins?

Yonghwa: I don’t’ do that.

Have you keep in touch with  the other members while your drama shooting? What do they say about your drama if they watch this drama?

Yonghwa: Yes I have. Because we live together. They always told me they watched drama. They said nice things about it and support me.

Do you have some role that you want to challenge?

Yonghwa: Especially, I don’t have. But I want to do various types of roles. I want to do anything if it’s with a good script and good role.

Please let us who are going to watch this drama and let fans in Japan know this drama’s highlight.

Yonghwa: ‘Marry Me If You Dare’ is a love story that Mirae has to choose the man who is the man for her fate or the man that must be loved in order to change her life back to the past.

Please have fun to watch each character that appears in this drama.

The drama that you appear has something to do with music, but in this drama, you don’t have such connection, because this role was the heir of the chaebol. So we wonder that you had a hard time to shooting.

Yonghwa: I didn’t mean to appear only to a drama that has music as background. Because I am the musician, I didn’t want to act similar role. All the more I was attracted this drama, I thought Sejoo is the role that I wanted to act. Since I was confident acting this role, I decided to appear to this drama.

The interest of fans in Japan is your change in this drama. Do you want to  focus on any part of Sejoo for people who watch the drama from now on?

Yonghwa: His effort to work while he gives heart to one woman. He has a charm as a man who will be a boss. Please support and love Sejoo as that.

What is the attractiveness as an actor, not as a musician?

Yonghwa: An actor would be express the other person through my body. It could be a person that is more attractive than me. It is the challenge as an actor that to act the attractive character that is different from me.

Have you contacted the other members while your drama shooting? What do they say about your drama if they watch this drama?

Yonghwa: Yes. Because we live together. They always told me they watched drama. They said nice things about it and support me.

Please let us who are going to watch this drama and let fans in Japan know this drama’s highlight.

Yonghwa: ‘Marry Me If You Dare’ is a love story that Mirae has to choose the man who is the man for her fate or the man that must be loved in order to change her life back to the past. I think there is no right answer, because two of the men are attractive. This is the story that seeks an answer, and is so interesting. Please have fun to watch each character that appears in this drama.

CNBLUE Lee Jungshin on Ceci Magazine 2014 October Issue

Through the released of drama “The Temptation” Lee Jung Shin and Kim So Young met, seemed like reaching sort of ‘sweet less’ parallel theory’s prime.

wpid-½ê¾¾10¿ù-4.jpg.jpeg
“While not working means receiving lots of stress.” So fearful personality grew but as time goes by I am becoming more courageous. It is not an important time seeing my major commitment to them all. Sometimes when cameras off I still want to run and play like usual high schooler, I missed that time.

If there is a time machine, I should go to 40 years old Lee Jung Shin. Together with my wife, kids pursuing a happy home, I want to see that side of Lee Jung Shin.

wpid-½ê¾¾10¿ù-3.jpg.jpeg

CeCi: When the camera off a few times Jung Shin gave different suggestions. Is it usual for you to appeal actively giving your own feedback?

Jung Shin: I am sure that I am on a doctor expression. I like things like taking pictures also have interest in pictorial shooting. Today I want to do sexy feel pictorial. I got inspiration from Kimura Takuya pictorial for today’s concept that includes rose and water, that’s where gentle emotion collected through close up shoot.

CeCi: The drama which you shoot together “The Temptation” is coming to an end soon. During that time, did the two of you get closer?

*So Young: We align not breathing for two months is enough. First time we met it’s totally awkward! As we getting familiar to each other, Jung Shin always use honorific and so do I can speak easily to each other. After meeting four times, we barely talk comfortably. Even now, when I met Jung Shin he was fully attached to ‘Noona’ words. Jung Shin also has lots of thoughts, just like ‘old kid’.

Jung Shin: Right Man examples. (Smile) It’s always in the beginning, as maknae I am trying to be familiar with everyone, it’s a bit difficult because there are lots of acquaintance who are only one year difference. Although only one year difference, if it’s Hyung, it Hyung, is its Noona, called Noona, that’s how you have to do it.

CeCi: When looked at your SNS, you seemed to be playful with member Jung Yong Hwa.

Jung Shin: Because Yong Hwa Hyung is like my own Hyung, so I feel comfortable enough to make fun of him “Uri Hyung”. Not only on SNS, in the real life have we also done that.

CeCi: In the drama every other impaired seemed to be divided. Jung Shin character Hong Gyu’s girlfriend Sejin called him “Ddorai (Crazy)”, heard through her spit, how about both of your dating style?

Jung Shin: I am not the style that pursuit certain style of dating. I will be throwing jokes and not like Hong Gyu who mistreats her girlfriend. Around front of many people I won’t be please if someone looked down, so nowadays women like cold city guy like Hong Gyu. If I have a girlfriend I will be a caring boyfriend. But to celebrities we usually had a lot of consideration; thought of wanting to be in a relationship seems like huge greed.

CeCi: Aaaa, Stress! What do you do to relieve stress?

Jung Shin: Either taking pictures or talk with my own Hyung (older brother) to loosen stress. Both of us live together so we are ready our ears, although it’s late at night we talk in veranda.

CeCi: Since now you living with your Hyung so your adopted “Simba” and be your companion?

Jung Shin: Oh right. In our house there are three brothers with maknae (youngest), Simba. At first we want a Retriever but it’s too big, the Siberian  that we want is not available. So we choose to raise king (Retriever) that we want to raise long time ago. These days Hyung and I giving overflowing love to Simba.

CeCi: Both of you debut 5 years ago, mid 20s almost passed. What part of you that have been growing since then?

Jung Shin: Part where my obsession to great detail. Not as a perfect performer, but to a perfect performance. My hearts still like a high schooler, time flows for me and what important now I am having heavier responsibility, that’s how process to be an adult.

CeCi How much and which part of you that will praise yourself to be satisfied?

Jung Shin: I want to be generous to everyone, but I am very strict to myself. Through small mistakes I’ll receive great stress, everything that I do I want to give a round of applause but there are part of regrets that made me worry.

CeCi: In the present to myself what I need the most.

Jung Shin: Confidence. I am on the side where deviancy of confidence happens. If I don’t have confidence whatever I do won’t do any right.

CeCi What kind of role that I am greed to have in an agreement immediately?

Jung Shin: A character that needs huge emotional bond.

CeCi: September is Jung Shin’s birthday, October is So Young birthday. Any plans to celebrate it yet?

Jung Shin: In the dorm every time members birthday preparing a cake is a must. On birthday to birthday’s boy with serious voice always said “Big Trouble” then throwing surprised birthday party.

CeCi: When living apart from other members?

Jung Shin: I miss them at that time. When birthday party we just can see other again. The four of us has special relationship.

CeCi: 10 months passed after you shot CeCi 20th first issue. If you could give roses as present, how many will it be?

Jung Shin: 100 roses stalks. Since CNBLUE debuted, every year we’ve joined the bonds. Last year January spread <CeCi>, ‘till now Yong Hwa Hyung still have cover photos pasted in his working room, if we look at our figure at that time, I remember “so old school”.
