◆ Your goal of 2015？
Donghyun：Firstly, my goal is this musical to be great successful. Because I like acting so much, I want to show my individual activities through acting. Then, I came to Japan after a long time for the musical, so I think I have to come here with all the members later. We haven't planned when to come, but next year all of BOYFRIEND members have to come here. And I hope that we can make a big hit over our comeback in Korea later, also we can meet with all of our overseas fans.
◆ As the leader of BOYFRIEND, please tell us how did the members grow.
Donghyun： First of all, our maknae-line were really kids before, but now I feel that they are being manlier. I see that Hyunseong being more good-looking too. Also, Jeongmin looked more handsome. Everyone being manlier.
◆ So everyone slowly being manlier from looks. How about mentally?
Donghyun: Right, in musical, Jeongmin and me are working hard to composing songs, I think... don't we show our manlier side?
◆ So now, as you're acting in musical, you’re also composing songs?
Donghun: Yes, I’m always composing songs with Jeongmin. We're the composing team.
◆ Acting, composing songs, who's inspired you for all the things you want to do?
Donghyun: I have a lot of artists I like, but I'm not a type who make a role model and get influenced. Why, because I may have some parts that similar with others, but I think it’s difficult to be totally the same. I like to do something I like with all my best, by my own way. That's my style.
◆ You act in musical, so how was the other members' responses about it? In the press conference, you said that they teased you.
Donghyun: Yes, even they're younger than me, they teased me for well. For example, in my previous musical, when I did my crying scene, they shouted, "Don't go!". Then, day by day they imitated it as well. Moreover, they did it in a weird way. But they actually came to watch me, I was deeply touched and cried, but I think they still want to tease their hyung as well. I really want to say it. This time, no doubt they'll also tease me. Especially, when I make a mistake.
◆ Would BOYFRIEND’s members come to watch you this time?
Donghyun: They said that they’ll come, but we’re preparing for our album now.... No, but they still have to come to watch me, right?
