◆ If you be able to act a different role out of your role now, what role do you want to try to act?
Donghyun: I want to try to act as the youngest child. Year by year, when I grew older, I always feel that I want to be young again. Like, I want to be cute.

Donghyun: I am. And maybe that's why, I want to know the feelings of being the youngest child.
◆ Do you have any lines or songs you like from the musical?
Donghyun： I like it, “I’m going to selling happiness”. Why, because I think we all think the same way. With our job, we also feel much of it. We want to make our fans happy. Just the same with the lines, we feel “I’m going to selling happiness”. So, I like it so much.
◆ Do you have any advice for everyone who challenges the musical for the first time?
Donghyun: For the first time, believe that that will turn out smoothly even there'll be any unconditional things. For the first time, of course you will get nervous, maybe you will make any mistakes, and you want to try to look charming. I did a lot of mistakes too, but don't let it make you feel burden, still do it happily.
◆ Whose act does left you a good impression in this musical?
Donghyun: Among everyone who perform with me now, Ricky is the one who impressive me the most.
