has finally launched his solo career, and he’s gaining attention not
only in Korea and Japan, but in Malaysia as well. The star sat down for
an interview with Malaysia’s ‘Straits Times‘, where he talked about going solo, finding his own performance style, and his dreams of working for the United Nations.
The article begins with Alexander’s thoughts on being able to express himself more as a soloist. “As a member ofU-Kiss,
I had to conform to the image of the group, in terms of songs and
concept. Now that I’m flying solo, I get to represent what I believe in
and what I love about music,” he said.
He added, “It’s fun to show fans my personality and colour. I
told my agency the image that I wanted to portray, and it helped me find
the right producers for my songs.”
Later on, the reporter brought up his fluency in several different
languages, including English, Cantonese, Korean, Japanese, and
Portugese. Alexander revealed that his interest in languages comes from
his family background — his father is Portugese-Chinese and his mother
He confessed that coming from a mixed-race background gave him some
difficulties in the past, and that’s why he dreams of world peace, where
there will be no discrimination.
“The UN will be a good place for me to realise this dream,” said
Alexander, explaining that one day he hopes to work for the UN. And
which country would he represent? The star chose his home of Macau “because it is very multicultural.”
The interview concluded with his thoughts on a potential reunion with U-KISS, a group he still considers to be like family.
“It’s a good idea to reunite with all members, current and former, for a performance,” he says. “Who knows? We just might.”
