Hello! This is VIXX’s Leo.
In “Full House,” I’ll be meeting everyone through the role of Lee Youngjae. I have worked hard preparing, so please come to see it.
Q: How do you feel about being part of the musical? Is practice turning out well?
A: The other VIXX members acted even happier than me when they congratulated me; they all promised to come see the performance. It was difficult at first, but now I lose track of time, having fun and practicing.
Q: What’s the hardest part of doing the musical?
A: Keeping the tone of the dialogue. The musical doesn’t really use everyday language, but it’s more standardized and has some vulgarities as well. Using “goon” and “ne” (T/N: various grammar structures) can be a little awkward. And sometimes a bit cringe-worthy. (laughing)
Q: Can you find any similarities between yourself and “Full House’s” Youngjae?
A: The way we are straightforward, and directly express that we don’t like something is a bit similar. But Youngjae can’t speak about his feelings honestly and talks in circles, whereas I have a tendency to show my emotions very frankly.
Q: Your fashion sense seems outstanding; do you often go shopping for yourself?
A: I like prop accessories, like rings. When there’s time, I stop by stores along the street and do some shopping.
Q: You’re really good at athletics; are there any activities you want to try?
A: Since I like jogging, I jog every day. Originally I liked sports that make you run and use your whole body like soccer and boxing. but these days I’m interested in cross fit and tennis. They seem like fun, so I want to try them.
Q: What kind of “Full House” is your dream?
A: I hope it’s a warm household. It’s my personal dream to become a good father and a good husband. I like the atmosphere of a big family that chit-chats a lot, so it’d be great to have a lot of children.
[The musical runs from April 11th until June 8th at the Hongik University Art Center.]
