Interview boys over flowers...

salam... hye... bawah nie aku sertakan interview hero2 boys over flowers... dari cnie, agaknya kita akan dapat tahu perangai diaorang yg sebenar... macho ke poyo ke... huhu... layan.... (^_^)

Boys Over Flowers recently wrapped up it's final episode and has been a huge success in Korea, ISPLUS recently did an interview with each of the boys of F4. Translated by Joe Gimm and shared by KPOP JJANG

Kim Bum:

IS: The So Yi-jung in Boys Before Flowers seems to be a smooth playboy - a ladies’ man.

KB: Thank you for the compliment but in real life, I am quite different. I am shy and do not mingle easily with people, much less attract beautiful women.
IS: Do you have a girlfriend?

KB: I’ve never had a girlfriend. I have been always too involved in something or other and have not found a girlfriend.

IS: If you had a girlfriend, what would you like her to do for you

KB: I would like her to cook for me and pack me a nice lunch box. During my busy shooting schedule, I often have to skip a meal. When that happens, I could eat the lunch box my girlfriend has lovingly prepared for me.
IS: Who is #1 on your mobile phone speed dial?

KB: I believe it’s a “hyung” (elder brother/senior) from my agency whom I call for support. When I have a girlfriend, I would probably change her number to be #1 on my speed dial then.

IS: What would you do if your parents oppose marriage to your chosen one — much like Boys Before Flowers’ Gu Jun-pyo’s situation?

KB: If I do not get married to the one I love because of the opposition of those around me, I will regret it for the rest of my life. I will persuade my parent’s for their blessing.

IS: What is your motto in life?

KB: Making a mistake once is alright, but don’t make it twice. As you live life, you may experience failures and you may make mistakes. However, I do not want to encounter the same defeat from making the same mistake again. It means that although a person can’t be perfect, he/she should try his/her best to come close to perfection.

IS: What is your biggest crisis in life to date?

KB: I don’t think I have experienced any extra ordinary crisis in my life. I have worked hard to overcome certain things, but I do not consider them crisis in my life.

IS: Do you want to be a tycoon like your character in Boys Before Flowers?

KB: I do not want to be a tycoon, although I am always keen to achieve, and to live out my dream.

IS: Favourite Internet sites?

KB: Daum, Naver and other portal sites because news and information can be obtained very quickly.

IS: What do you always carry in your bag?

KB: Mobile phone and wallet.

IS: Do you have a jinx or habit?

KB: The day before the first day of shooting the drama I could not sleep. However, when morning comes, I go to the set in good spirits and get the job done. The next night, if I don’t get to sleep again, my condition worsens.

IS: When you feel stressed how do you solve it?

KB: When I am stressed, I look for my friends. I get de-stressed when I hang out with them, laughing and talking.

IS: Who is your favourite sports star?

KB: Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo.

IS: What three things would you bring to a desert island?

KB: Game consoles, DVD player and cell phone. I could watch movies with the DVD player and enjoy the island in between playing games on my console. Why would I bring a cell phone to a deserted island? I saw a CF once where the mobile phone was used to call for a Jjajangmyeon delivery.(T/N: Kim Bum’s answer sounds 바보 to me. Game console and DVD player with no TV?)

IS: If you have a completely free day, what would you do?

KB: I would like to go somewhere to clear my head and unwind.
Lee Min Ho:

IS: The Baeksang Arts Awards fall (referring to Min-ho tripping on the Red Carpet) was a hot topic.

LMH: Yeah what a silly mistake and I was embarrassed. But my fans did cheer me on and I could see the love of the fans.

IS: What is your motto in life?

LMH: Not to give up on my goals. Victory is not as important as possessing a fighting spirit. My motto is to not give up even if I fail. I think to have that attitude is just beautiful.

IS: What was the biggest crisis in your life to date?

LMH: There was this traffic accident in 2006. I had to stay in the hospital for 6 months. At first I was frustrated and I couldn’t even walk. But I am glad I overcame that.

IS: How do you relieve stress?

LMH: Just sleep. Sleep until the stress disappears. I have slept for 24 hours previously.

IS: What’s your sleeping habit like?

LMH: I grind my teeth and talk in my sleep, which is why my pals don’t want to sleep with me when we travel.

IS: When and where was your first kiss?

LMH: It was when I was a freshman in high school. I kissed my girlfriend, standing right in front of her house.

IS: What do you think most women want as a gift?

LMH: If I had a girlfriend, that would be good. Women want you to be their best friend. That’s the best gift of all.

IS: When was the last time you dated and had a girlfriend?

LMH: When I was 20. I haven’t had a girlfriend since University.

IS: What is your ideal type of woman?

LMH: I think more of her overall style and my feeling toward her than her appearance.I’m drawn to a woman, although not pretty, that appeals to my feeling strongly.

IS: If you had a lover, which term of endearment would you use to call her?

LMH: It depends on the style of the woman (T/N: literal translation. But i guess he means the term of endearment he will use depends on what kind of woman she is. There is no fixed term for all.)

IS: What if your parents were against your marriage — like in the character Gu Jun-pyo?

LMH: We will run away and elope.

IS: Which actress would you like to work with in future?

LMH: Song Hye-kyo sunbae. She is elegant and classy and has loads of charisma and possesses excellent acting skills. Should I get a chance to work with her, I would be able to learn a lot and no doubt be very nervous.

IS: Person whom you most want to meet?

LMH: I want to meet Hollywood actor Edward Norton. He has a laid back, comfortable charisma that is so impressive. When I meet him, I will ask “Will you teach me how?” But I must brush up on my English first.

IS: Who is your favourite sports star?

LMH: Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo. It was my dream in elementary school to become a professional soccer player. If I continued to play soccer, I hope to be a player like Cristiano Ronaldo now.

IS: What’s your favourite food and what dish do you cook well?

LMH: I like meat. Recipe? Just roast it. I have a secret roasting process. Beef, pork or chicken, I use the same recipe.

IS: What is your #1 karaoke song? (The song you sing all the time at karaokes)

LMH: Toy’s 내가 잠시 너의 곁에 살았다는 걸

IS: What do you always carry in your bag?
LMH: Cologne. I always like to smell nice.IS: What is your favourite drink?

LMH: I usually don’t drink alcohol. Three cups of soju is my limit. I like hard liquor.

IS: Do you have a jinx or habit?

LMH: Whenever I’m in a drama or movie, I injure myself. I have to be extra careful.

IS: What three things would you bring to a desert island?

LMH: A bed, lighter and my mobile phone. Having a nice bed to sleep on would be good (yes! i agree with this!!). On a deserted island, your food should be cooked - hence the lighter. I could cook fish. I would be so bored on a deserted island that I would play with all the games I downloaded to my mobile phone.

IS: What do you envy of your F4 members?

LMH: Kim Bum’s small face, Kim Joon’s big eyes, Kim Hyun-joong’s fair complexion. As for the whole package, I am actually the best.

Kim Hyun Joong:

IS: Who do you want to meet most in the world?

KHJ: Of course Seo Taiji. When i was a child, I listened to a variety of foreign music and I liked the rock genre. The top song when I was in school was Seo Taiji and Boys’ “Nan-arayo” ( 난 알아요). Then when I heard “Ultramania”, I decided to become a singer. I have a lot of respect for Seo Taiji.

IS: Do you have any talent you’ve been polishing since the school days?

KHJ: I played bass guitar in a band when I was in high school. I can play it quite well. I enjoy expressing it by playing guitar when I get a musical idea. I would spend whole day to search for rare guitars when I was visiting Japan. I love the guitar.

IS: Do you have any places you want to travel to? Who with?

KHJ: I have friends whom I’ve been growing up with in the same town. I’ve spent most of my life with them. I fear nothing when I’m with them. I want to travel to space with them and challenge the limit of our lives. Does that sound like nonsense?

IS: Who is number one on your mobile phone speed dial?

KHJ: I have a bad memory and my mobile phone directory stores my important numbers but I don’t use the speed dial.

IS: What do you always carry in your bag?

KHJ: An extra pair of contact lens, eye drops and a shaver. Also an extra pair of underwear and socks just in case we end up shooting all night.

IS: Which actress would you like to work with?

KHJ: Lee Hyo-ri. Before I made a debut as a singer, she was my dream girl. Hyori is my senior and gave me lots of valuable advice. She is such an inspiration to me.

IS: What is your motto in life?

KHJ: You only have one chance in life, live hard and earn fame. Help the poor and be respected.

IS: What’s the difference before and after F4?

KHJ: The age range of people who recognise me became various. The character Ji Hoo seemed to give me a chance to produce another Kim Hyun Joong.

IS: Have you ever posted any opinion under Internet news articles (about youself)?

KHJ: I try not to read bad posts (about me). I would read what people write about me on my fan page and write my opinions as well. Sometimes I reveal myself and sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I write really harsh reports on myself to push myself. I visit Daum the most.

IS: Do you have a bad habit or jinx?

KHJ: No jinx. Habit perhaps? When I am stressed, I like to go on fishing trips or listen to music.

IS: What if your parents were against your marriage — like in the character Gu Jun-pyo?

KHJ: I will try to persuade my parents, that I am responsible enough to make the decision.

IS:Where and with whom do you like to drink with?

KHJ: I drink a lot. Soju. Anywhere (the place is not important). I drink with my band mates and friends. A simple stall by the street is good enough. I like my soju with pork and kimchi.

IS: What was the biggest crisis in your life to date?

KHJ: It was when I was in the MBC TV show We’ve Got Married. We went to film at Halla Mountain (Halla San) at Jeju Island. We took 5 hours to climb up the mountain and 2 hours to get down. I didn’t go easy but went on briskly. I ran down for 2 hours without a break. Finally, when we reached the bottom and it was time for an interview at the hotel, I had no energy left and fainted.

IS: What would you do if you won ₩ 10,000,000,000 (around $7,500,000) in the lottery?

KHJ: ₩ 5,000,000,000 to parents. ₩ 1,000,000,000 to my boss Lee Ho-yeon of DSP Entertainment. 20% to needy neighbours, 20% to share with friends.

IS: Do you have any skin care secrets?

KHJ: My dermatologist takes care of my skin very well. That’s my honest answer. Haha. I will always try to clean my skin properly.
IS: What is your sleeping habit?

KHJ: I sleep in only my underwear. I can’t endure wearing anything more because I am afraid of the heat. I like the feeling of the blanket next to my skin and only wear my underwear to bed.

IS: When did you last date and how old were you?

KHJ: We split up just before I made my debut (in SS501). Haha.

IS: What would you call your girlfriend if you have one?

KHJ: I would just call her name. I’m not as gentle or tender as Ji Hoo. I wish my girlfriend was someone just like a friend, who I would feel comfortable with.

IS: What do you want to receive from your girlfriend?

KHJ: Actually, I would be more comfortable giving than receiving. Even if I have something I want, I won’t tell her and I would just buy it myself. I would give anything from me to the most precious one.

IS: What do you envy of your F4 members?

KHJ: Min-ho’s height, Bum’s maturity and Joon’s personality?

IS: What is the best fortune of your life so far?

KHJ: The fact that I have friends who I’ve been with since primary school, and that I’m a member of SS501.

IS: If you have a completely free day, what would you do?

KHJ: I just want to sleep all day.

IS: Who manages your income?

KHJ: Since I was a child and started off with part-time jobs, I have been managing my own income. My parents trust me.

Kim Joon:

IS: Person whom you want to meet the most?

KJ: Since young, I have always wanted to meet Seo Taiji. He has been my idol since childhood days. When I was in elementary school, he was the face of the leading music then. Now, 17 years after his debut album, he is still active in the music scene and I have a lot of respect for that.

IS: Who is your favourite sports star?

KJ: Michael Jordan. I loved watching him during NBA Basketball mania. Michael Jordan - the name itself is a strong force.
IS: What is your life motto?

KJ: “Just do the best you can”, that is my motto.
IS: What’s the difference after being one of F4?
KJ: People see me differently. Maybe people who I used to know see me differently now and also the people I get to know newly. Ajummas would give cheers at me when I go to a restaurant and I feel that I’m being taken care of a lot since the drama became really popular.

IS: What would you do if you won ₩ 10,000,000,000 in the lottery?
KJ: I would put it in savings. When a lot of money comes to me at one time, I would plan how to use it carefully to avoid bitterness in the future.

IS: What do you envy of your F4 members?

KJ: I envy their vast experience at such a young age. The other F4 members are younger than me, yet I am the one who’s the rookie (in the entertainment industry). Their careers have gone off to a great start.
IS: Do you have any talent or skill you can show in front of people?

KJ: I rap in T-MAX so rapping is the thing I’m confident of. I used to like dancing when I was younger but I don’t think I dance better than others. I like rapping because I can express myself when I create it or write lyrics. You can do it with melody but doing it with lyrics is more fascinating.
IS: Favourite Internet site?

KJ: I enjoy surfing the net, but I don’t have a favourite site. However, I like to check up on Boys Before Flowers articles and related articles.

IS: What if you become a tycoon like your character in the drama?

KJ: I would see how much I have in my bank account. I would feel contented when I see the
numbers and think ‘I have this much’. Actually I wonder whether those tycoons would check how much money they have.

IS: The best luck you had in your life?

KJ: When I debuted as a singer in the group T-MAX. That was a big break for me.

IS: What was the biggest crisis in your life?
KJ: The time when I was preparing to debut as a singer was the darkest years of my life. The waiting, challenges I faced and uncertainty was difficult.

IS: Which actress would you love to work with?

KJ: I’m still a beginning actor so I haven’t really thought about which actress I want to act with. I just feel joyful that I have been so lucky at the start of my acting career.

IS: How much do you drink and who do you drink with?

KJ: I can drink about a bottle of Soju. I normally drink with other guys of T-MAX, who I’ve gone through hard times with.

IS: What do you always carry in your bag?

KJ: These days my phone is the most important item. But to think about it, the wallet is probably more important.

IS: How do you relieve stress?

KJ: I de-stress by emitting a sound like a great roar. When I was playing sports as a child, we used to do this before starting a game. So the roaring has become a habit. Sometimes it’s just fun to let out a ROAR!
IS: What three things would you bring to a desert island?

KJ: Cell phone, mp3 player and lots of water! I would like to be able to contact others, listen to the music I like and keep my throat moist.

IS: If you have a completely free day, what would you do?
KJ: I want to sleep. We don’t get enough sleep while shooting the drama.

IS: How do you manage your income?

KJ: My parents do. I have little to spend money on nowadays since my schedule is so hectic that I hardly get any pocket money
