Parts of the Short Q&A with Kim Jung Hoon:
▲ How do you feel enlisting?
I feel I’m enlisting rather suddenly. For 2~3 years I wasn’t active in Korea but got good experiences abroad. I will return healthy in 2 years to show off a better side of myself. Thank you for supporting me. I will see you in 2 years.
▲ 2 years later, what do you plan to do? The reason you’re releasing your first solo album this year?
I have a lot of ambition in acting. Of course I will have to think about it again after two years but I want to show my acting ability. The reason I decided to release a domestic album was because I wasn’t able to be very active in Korea and as I was thinking of a present for my fans, I quickly prepared this album. But I recorded it and prepared it to the best of my ability. So please anticipate it.
▲ Who is the last celebrity you met with?
In the recording studio, I met Hong Kyung Min. He told me many good stories.
▲ Your state of mind right now?
Clear. It’s a place where all Korean guys have to go. I will make it so I can enjoy it for the next 2 years.
▲ The last person you met?
I just ate dinner with my mother. I regret not being able to spend more time with my mother and father before coming.
▲ The thing you want to do most after enlisting?
Shooting a gun and throwing a grenade
▲ Are you worried about your age?
I heard if you’re old, they let many things slide. So I feel less burdened. But I’m going to try my best as to not hear that I am old. Thank you everyone for coming even though I enlisted rather suddenly. I will return after finishing my duty.
