Q: Since 15 years have passed, has Junjin’s youth passed too?
A: They say that a man is the most charismatic around his 30s. I think that I can show what I can at this moment. That’s why I like it. I think that I’m doing something because I know a little about it. 20s, the age where you’re sort of green, nope, I don’t want to go back then. The members probably feel the same.
Q: If we were to find the charms of Junjin, who is past 30, from the album?
A: If I had to, if I really had to pick one, it would be the song titled “Scarface”. There is a lot of English in the rap, and English isn’t something that should just be pronounced nicely, it should also sound cool. I recorded it while learning English from Eric. I also made my voice sound brighter, and I think it must be the hardest rap I’ve done so far. Of course, I’m satisfied with the result.
Q: You must want to show it on stage.
A: That’s the sad part. Each and every song is good. Translation by malpabo tumblr com. The dance for the title song “This Love” has restraint and a mature sexiness. The males around me say they like it. It’s like, instead of feeling nervous, anticipation for it is great and I’d like to quickly show it. It has been a really long time since I felt like this.
Q: If you compare it to when you sang “Wa” as a soloist?
A: “Wa” was done with the idea to do a song and dance that was appealing to the general public. So that they could follow along with the song and the dance. In comparison to that, Shinhwa hasn’t really had a dance where the public can easily dance along to. This time round, they’ll be able to dance along. It’s a great dance.
Congratulations on receiving an award at the Paeksang Art Awards. Did you prepare your acceptance speech? I anticipated the award. To add one more thing because it wasn’t quite enough, it’s quite important for actors who started out as singers to receive awards because you form a good impression.
At least you don’t hear that you can’t act? To make a confession, I think I’ve only acted as much to not get cursed at. When an actor makes a new attempt, even if there is controversy over his/her acting ability, that actor will grow.
Not only in acting, but in life are you like that? I try hard not to stick to my desires. However, I live the way I want when I’m not being watched. I also do a lot of immoral and nonreligious things.
Do you drink a bit? I like to drink and get drunk. Haha. I drink to get ruined. I recently drank somac (soju-beer) and made a mistake from blacking out. However, I was regarded cutely. I think that’s a characteristic that’s unique to our country.
Sometimes it seems like ‘Kim Dongwan in Shinhwa’ and ‘Actor Kim Dongwan’ are completely different people. In Shinhwa, I lack that 2%. However, I like being in this position. If I was Shinhwa’s A-class or main vocal or dancing machine, I wouldn’t have been able to act.
Dying the concert venue in orange,
and sending the most passionate love,
What they have dyed
isn’t just the orange balloons;
it is Shinhwa’s passion,
that has let them live on for 15 years
