 Minwoo on Chinese magazine, fans★fans 戀韓誌11雜 translation!
Q: How to wear the uniform smartly? Give everyone some tips!
A: I normally wouldn’t do any alterations to my school uniform, but in winter, I will specially add on a scarf as an accessory, just with a scarf and the whole uniform will look nice.
Q: How do you balance both being a student and an artist?
A: Although striking balance between both is hard, especially work because of the many promotions, but if there’s time to return back to school, our members all enjoy it.
Q: What’s your best and worst subject in school?
A: I think the most interesting subject is Physical Education, I can totally relax! I’m the most disinterested in Mathematics, I seem to be unable to understand anything at all!
Q: Although you guys look really smart in the school uniform, many fans think that you boys are too skinny, so normally do you guys watch your weight?
A: I’ve always been skinny, but I am healthy, so please don’t worry! Recently to make myself even healthier, I’ve started working out!
Q: Although Boyfriend has yet to officially debut in many overseas countries, but you guys have many international fans. Are you shocked at the amount of international fans you guys have?
A: Rather than saying we’re “popular”, I am more shocked at the fact that so many overseas fans have such continuous support for us, I’m really thankful to everyone for their attention!
Q: Do you still remember the first impression of the Boyfriend members when you guys first met?
A: The first time I saw twins Youngmin and Kwangmin, I thought they looked exactly identical. Although it was our first meeting, I was quite confident I’d get along really well with the twins!
Q: You guys have not debuted for long, do you still remember your debut stage?
A: To be honest, during then after we just got off the stage, I had a feeling of being “unable to comprehend how we completed that stage”, I remember being really stiff on the stage back then! My most lasting impression of then is when Kwangmin cried because he made a mistake! Hahahaha~
