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.
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.
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.
