►►[Interview] 091118- Jung Yong Hwa tells ETN, “Park Shin Hye is my ideal girl”

Here is a rough translation of the ETN interview Jung Yong Hwa did on Nov. 18th, talking about the drama he’s staring in, his ideal girl, and more!

You’re Beautiful related:

Hongki is energetic and funny. His voice is very loud.
He’s completely different from the character Kang Shinwoo. He likes to joke around and makes a lot of noise all the time.
To prepare for this role, Yong Hwa studied similar characters, like Yoon Jihoo in Boys Over Flowers and Kang Dong Won’s character in Wolf’s Attraction (thx chiara for the tip)
He thinks Shinwoo is too pathetic, so he’s begging the scriptwriter and director, “Shin-woo is so sad all the time. He just keeps talking to himself. Can you please let him smile a little more, please! Thanks.(LOL! I love you JYH!)
His school results aren’t that good but he’s a hardworking student.
He’s never drunk before and he’s never run away from home. He always went home early and has good relationship with his family.
(He keeps saying he’s telling the truth for the reporter keeps smiling as he says the above and doesn’t seem to believe what he says at all.)
Q: When do you think you look handsome?
Ans: When I look into the mirror or after I’ve taken a shower, I’ll think: Not bad? And I think charisma is more important than looks.


Ideal Girl:

Park Shin Hye vs Uee – the reporter asks him to choose according to looks. He says he never just pay attention to looks. As he’s playing Shinwoo, he’s gotta choose SH. He stresses that it isn’t that he likes Shin Hye, he likes Go MiNam.
SNSD’s YoonA vs KARA – he picks YoonA. he says KARA is pretty too but SNSD is super popular in his school.
Lee Hyori vs Son Dambi – he picks Hyori but then explains both are gorgeous and so on…
GHJ vs KSY (?)– He picks GHJ …..
The final winner is Park Shin Hye. He explains that he’s been working with her lately and so they are closer … blahblahblah… ^^
Then he says to the camera, “Shin Hye, so I said you’re my ideal type in this show. Next time when you’re interviewed, you gotta choose me, too. Let’s help each other out.


C.N. Blue:

He says they don’t just look good, they are good at music.
The song (Just Please) he wrote the music and lyrics – It’s about someone who can’t sleep when it’s raining. He says it’s a good song and ask viewers to look out for it.
Favorite song — Superstar by Lupe Fiasco
The reporter asks him to sing a few lines. He asks the manager if he should sing but he says no >_<
So he asks viewers to wait until they debut in Korea.

    Yong Hwa-Shin Hye forever! 😀
    Thank you for the translation. I love the last part when he said to Shin Hye in front of the camera, that he has chosen her as his ideal type of girl, so she should do the same thing and help each other out. Hahahaha….pure love
    Do you have the video for it, by any chance?

    “He stresses that it isn’t that he likes Shin Hye, he likes Go MiNam.”
    LOL LOL I laughed so hard when reading this sentence. Why did he had to be stress about Shinhye?? and had to confirm that he likes Gominam, not Shinhye.LOL
    If you watch their BTS, He does realize or not, I think Yonghwa had a (big) crush on Shinhye.
    I love them until now, to me, they’re so cute together, very natural and comfortable together.
    Shinhye-Yonghwa = Shinhwa forever…=)

  8. And very important thing about Shinhwa Couple, that they seem so underradar, un-noticed and underrated by most people.

      I think YongShin is better, because as I see, they are really perfect together. And I think they’re more close and sweet off and on cam than the Yong</3Seo couple. Sorry to offend you but as I see YongShin is a million times better than Yong</3Seo. YongShin fighting!!!!

    Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye are a very cute couple, though I also find Jang Geuk Sun compatible with her since they’re neighbors to being with.

    I think Jung Yong hwa and Park Shin hye should get married and have kids together. Their sooo cute together. They’d make the cutes couples ever.

    it’s so great to read all these comments about how people love Yong-hwa and Shin-hye and YongShin too. it just makes me feel really warm as there are so many people who share the same feelings towards Yong-hwa and Shin-hye as me. I hope they really will be together once, or just in one project again.
