As the special gift for fans, KyuJong specially perform magic which he is an expert. Before the magic performance, reading silently “2011 has a lot of good things”, gesturing heart sign to fans being picked on stage. Because can felt the calm and elegant look, sometime felt that he is older than YoungSaeng who was standing beside him, KyuJong seemed to think like this, and mentioned to fans: “Do you thin I am more elder? Although YoungSaeng is hyung, but seemed like I looked more like one” kind of word. KyuJong’s this year’s theme is ‘acting’. We have an interview with KyuJong who is passionate about bring an actor.
Q: The DVD is film in Philippines Pomo Island, please talk about the sea.
Kyu: No matter where is the sea, will feel happy, the sea is really good. (Smile) In my impression there’s many sea in different places. When going to Kangwondo with SS501 members, running and chasing in the seaside at night; Filming with members in America sea. Also to film a program, went to work in a restaurant call “House of the sea” at Chiba seaside. (Smile)
Q: What kind of person is YoungSaeng in KyuJong eyes?
Kyu: First impression is “Although looked charming but feel very cold”. Even when being mistaken also won’t talk. However once spending time more, turned into “This person is a really deep person” kind of thought. Although seldom talk, but towards person who first met will be more tactful and will be careful in speech, is a very cool person. After getting closer, discover that not only is a person who will bring lots of happiness but also a person that will think for others. YoungSaeng hyung who sing very well no matter when will always said “I don’t sing well”…. really very humble! Most charming when singing! (Smile)
Q: There’s a movie clip showing you massaging YoungSaeng, you are good in massaging?
Kyu: Although don’t know whether consider good, but like to massage for others. Always massage my parents and hyung which are closed to me! After completed, when heard them saying it is very comfortable, will feel very happy.
Q: If there’s 2nd DVD, where and how do you want it to be filmed?
Kyu: How about acting as a singer? To me it is a very big present, my memories could also be portray in another style, will work even harder. After going through interview, failure, and getting a chance to participate in recording, finally debut….. while showing happiness smile, at the same time showing the image of becoming a great artist after few years…. if can film this kind of process, really wish to (smile)
Q: KyuJong is a person that will easily sweat, when filming in Philippines, have problem with make up melting very fast because of sweating, felt very tiring right. What about in daily life? For example, when hold on a girl hand and having the uneasiness of sweating.
Kyu: There are no incident of sweating and holding hands at the same time. However, when I am alone in the car and feel hot, really very uneasy. However, there’s also a good side. In the suana, can sweat very fast!
Related to acting in the DVD, “When acting alone, will be more natural. When together with YoungSaeng hyung, will felt a little shy.” It is just a matter of not enough experience and also the most worth watching point. Because too engross, will have opposite effect. For example, YoungSaeng mentioned about this kind of interesting thing. “In the DVD, there were scenes which both of us high five before playing seaside volley ball, KyuJong was to engross in the act and rushed fiercely at me, and hit the face. Really very painful. Get the OK for the scene because of that condition. If look at the DVD carefully, can see that actually I was very painful.” Seems like he wanted to use this as his future actual acting activity. After few years time, after training, when able to perform naturally things that wish to perform, this DVD will become a treasure.
Q: In future, is there any role which you wish to act in? Like which movie and which role in a drama.
Kyu: Recently seen ‘Petty Romance’ by Lee Seon Kyun and Choi Kang Hee, really like Lee Seon Kyun’s role. Also like to try ‘The Chaser’ and ‘The Supernatural’ kind of role in movie. Then, also want to try the role which Ha Jung Woo acted in ‘My Dear Enemy’! When thinking really felt very greedy… haha, fighting!! (Smile)
Q: When filming the DVD, do you have any thoughts of “I am not suitable to be an actor” kind of thought for a moment?
Q: SS501 leader Kim HyunJoong has successfully perform his acting activity, (KyuJong) towards other members activities, are you worried?
Kyu: Of course will be worried. No matter what has been looking after each others over this long period. When see the member performing, will know whether is nervous, has what kind of problem (smile). However, they are very experience, definitely can do well. HyunJoong hyung’s drama, JungMin’s first album, and HyungJun’s musical. YoungSaeng is preparing new album! Looking at everybody like this, will think that I do not want to loose out to the other members.
Q: Of all the SS501 songs, which is your favourite?
Kyu: For our song, most like songs which will convey a message. Because able to feel the pain which everybody expressed. ‘Wings of the World’, ‘Confession’, ‘Sometime’, ‘Because I am stupid’, ‘Just one day’ and ‘Again’ etc, also always listening currently. ‘Sky’ when listening will felt warmth in my heart and like it very much.
Q: During the fan meeting magic performance, used red roses, however when on stage fans has suggested to use orchid. If able to perform magic for all kinds of flower, most wish to be what flower?
Kyu: Yellow roses
Q: What other type of magic you are good in?
Kyu: There are still a few more perfected magic, if there’s chance will show to everybody! Because learning magic during secondary time, so the ability has deteriote. (Cry)
Q: Will you be passive in love relationship? During fan meeting heard rumours of KyuJong is a shy person….
Kyu: Rather than saying is a person that is active in love relationship, might as well said is a person which is passive. But feel that recently have turned more positive. (Smile)
Q: What will you react if meet a person you like?
Kyu: When meeting a person I like, will first try to understand each other gradually
Q: Do you have any encounter of love in first sight?
Kyu: If such thing happen, will try to talk to her to know more about her. Not just limited to love relationship, when meeting new friends will also do this. If really think that “this is the person”, will do like this and will do everything well! In love relationship and also with friend.
Q: In HyunJoong’s ‘We Got Married’, have once match made with Wonder Girls YooBin. Was really shy during that time and left a deep impression to others. Do you still keep in contact now?
Kyu: After that has no chance to meet again, also has not keep in contact. Because was very busy, after filming had not meet again.
Q: KyuJong always said “My ideal type is Oh SeJung’…
Kyu: “My ideal type is Oh SeJung’, until now has not change. Like gentle, exceptional, and a little bit blur type of girl
Q: You are from JeonJu right, do you go back very often?
Kyu: Always go back to hometown. When feeling very lonely in Seoul, will cancel all plans and go home, meeting with friends in my hometown, go back to my parents home. Only at that moment, will have the normal (Kim KyuJong in human world) live. Can don’t think of anything, say anything. (Everytime also) at the moment when reaching home town, felt very excited, but will not stay for very long. Because if stay for very long, will not want to go back (Seoul), so will try to go back early.
Q: Talk about your solo activity in future.
Kyu: Firstly wish to learn a lot of things. Because feeling that from the start until now, has been running forward, now wanted to rest for a while. Listening to a lot of music which haven’t listen before, watch a lot of movie which haven’t watched, while learning and practicing acting skill and preparing for album. Working hard towards the goal of when other heard of Kim KyuJong will said “He is really very good”.
Q: Finally, what is your dreams in future?
Kyu: Music producer. Music is a friend that bring me until here, is a friend that make me cry and laugh. Although still have a lot of things that are not matured enough and is still learning, but from now on will definitely want to live together with music.
KyuJong ended the interview with his signature “Written by J.Dream”. J.Dream is his pen name which he used when composing. And also left a message with a deep meaning — “Although has schedule to focus this year main activity on acting, but music is root.” With a goal as a producer, in order to show more ability chosen the route as an actor. This is definitely not a decision based on easy choice.
