난 데뷔 때부터 내 팬 페이지에 게시물을 한 달에 한 번씩은 꼭 챙겨서 올린다. 거창한 건 아니고 내가 팬이라면 어떻게 해주었을 때 가장 좋을까를 많이 고민했을 때, 진심으로 나와 소통하면 좋겠다는 생각에서다. 그래서 사소한 것까지 최대한 내 속마음을 조근조근 들려주고 싶다.” by 려욱
Since my debut, I’ve been writing messages on my fansite at least once a month. It’s not something grand, but considering that if I’m a fan, what kinds of action of an idol will make me happy? I’ve concluded that if an idol should communicate with fans sincerely from the bottom of his heart, fans will be very happy. Therefore I want to tell my fans my inner thoughts, even the slightest ones, as much as I can.
Q . I saw SM Town Paris on TV. K-pop fever was amazing.
A. Ryeowook: 숙소 앞에 이제 외국 팬이 더 많을 정도다. 성민이 형의 뮤지컬을 보러 갔는데, 바로 옆 좌석에 앉은 스페인 팬들이 악수를 청하셨다. 나도 ‘어우~ 땡큐!’ 했다.(웃음)
Nowadays, among fans who wait in front of the dorm, one can find more foreign fans than Koreans. When I went to watch Sungmin’s musical, Jack the Ripper, the fans from Spain sat right beside me and asked to shake hands with me. I said “wow, thank you” (laugh)
Q. Is there a member who motivates you?
A. Ryeowook:은혁이 형! 보디라인은 우리 중 1위다. 벗겨놓으면 정말 태가 예쁘다. 깡마른 몸매 같은데 전혀 마르지 않은, 은근한 근육질이랄까.얼굴 빼고 다 배우고 싶다.(웃음)
Eunhyuk. His body is the first among SJ. He looks really good in the nude. He looks very skinny, actually he’s not skinny but he has delicate small muscles. I want to learn everything from him and take after him except his face.(Laugh)
Updates start here
Q. Who is the simple man among Sj members?
Eunhyuk said: Siwon, Ryeowook & Shindong.
려욱인 일하다 생기는 고민이나 찾아오는 회의감을 “난 그래도 지금 이렇게 무대에 설 수 있다는 사실이 행복해”라면 단순하게 정리하는 재주가 있다.
Ryeowook has the talent of getting over any hardship or doubt from work simply by saying “Nonetheless I’m just happy to be performing here on the stage.”
