What is the difference between “singer Dongho” and “actor Dongho”?
There isn’t a very big difference, when we are performing on music shows I will walk and use music to de-stress, but now I pass time by watching dramas. The biggest difference is that my members are not with me. When I am lonely or sad I have no one to lean onto. This is quite sad.
Was the filming of “Royal Family” interesting?
Very interesting. There were much more scenes that I had to act in compared to the previous movie that I was in. The difficulty level was also higher, and my acting skills are not that good yet, but I am trying to improve on this and I feel that I should work harder.
Was it burdensome to act together with your seniors?
“Royal Family” is based on a family in Korea’s high-class society, so the atmosphere on set is quite tense, but after the director shouts “Cut!” it will be different, especially when I hear the seniors talk about their past experiences. They are so meaningful!
Is there a role you must try playing?
I want to try playing a role like Kim Joo Won (Hyunbin) in “Secret Garden” that can move even male fans. I also want to try playing roles that can make people think “if only I were more mature” or “If only I could do this”.
Which actor do you want to act most with?
“Dream High”’s Kim Soohyun hyung. I am his loyal fan! Actually, I’ve met him once, his personality is really nice! If I ever get to the standard where I can work with him, I hope I will get the chance to.
Is it very tiring to be acting and preparing for a comeback at the same time?
To be honest... I am feeling very tired, that’s why I am trying to adopt good habits. I need to rest but at the same time remember dance steps and watch dramas! So, I am working hard now to balance all these out.
Do you have any special methods to keep yourself healthy?
I don’t have anything special, but I really like eating sweet food like chocolates. Once I am tired I will be unhappy, so at these times I need chocolate to cool myself down.
What present do you want to give to your parents the most?
I hope when I earn lots of money next time… I want to buy a big present to show my respect for them. I really admire celebrities whenever I see news of them buying houses and cars~
What is the biggest difference between now and when you just debuted?
When we first debuted I didn’t know anything. I only chose to work in this industry because I liked the idea of being a singer, but after becoming one I realised the advantages and disadvantages, so recently I have been trying to think positively. Even if I see insulting comments, even if I face difficulties, even if I don’t have any air time, I will still think on the bright side and realise these are not really problems.
As a singer, what is the dream who want to achieve most?
Until today we haven’t even gotten first on any music show. I really wish U-KISS will get number one.
What about you makes you attractive?
Everytime I answer this question I will feel so embarrassed, how can I talk about my own attractiveness without feeling embarrassed? I am very mature for my age and that is what’s attractive about me. Contrary to first impression, nobody can believe that I am only 18 after speaking to me. At first I felt hurt, but as time passed I realised that it is actually attractive. Although I am only a normal student, I seem very mature at times.
What kind of girls do you like?
I don’t like people who tell lies. I can tell if someone is lying very easily. If I know that someone has been lying I will explode in anger, so I don’t want to be in a relationship with someone who lies!
If you could be born again, what kind of person do you want to be?
A while ago when I was at a certain website I saw a topic about the guy who looks best dressed up as a girl (?). Curious, I clicked on it and realised that it was me! It seems a bit weird to be saying this, but at times I think I’m quite abnormal. Usually when guys are asked to dress up as girls they will be unwilling, but when I do it I will make sure I take care of my hair and take pictures, acting as if I have worn skirts for a long time. Although this sounds like I am boasting, but I think I am quite pretty. If I were to be born again I want to be a girl who is even prettier than I am now!
U-Kiss'Dongho, who’s been starring in numerous films and dramas lately, reportedly turned down a few huge roles, leading fans to question why.
Having made his acting debut through the movie “Villain & Widow” last year, he’s since received over five love calls for leading roles in other movies, dramas, and musicals. Despite other idol stars leaping at the chance for leading roles, Dongho has opted out.
A representative spoke with OSEN and explained, “Dongho himself realizes that he is still lacking in many aspects as an actor. He wants to first learn through smaller roles, and although he’s disappointed in having to let the bigger roles go, it’s a sacrifice he wanted to make. After further growth and improvement, we predict that he’ll be able to be more confident in the future.”
He’s mainly played the role of a high school student, and some of his supporting roles are found in “My Black Mini Dress,” MBC’s “Royal Family,” “Real School,” and “Villain & Widow.”
