“The VIXX members are always cheering each other on and monitoring each other’s work […] I think that right now is a time when I have to focus on acting more than performing. I want to be acknowledged as the actor Cha Hak Yeon.”

“I always get especially caught up in my thoughts and worries at the end of each year. Up until now, I’ve had regrets when looking back at the past year, but it was different this year.”

“My love for the job of acting really grew starting from ‘Tunnel.’ Even though I had a small role and little screen time, I found my character really charming.”

“It’s true that I have the type of personality where I need to do something perfectly, exactly the way I’ve prepared it, in order to feel satisfied. If I don’t prepare properly, I get so nervous that I can’t even do half of what I need to do.”

“I’d like it if I could enjoy things a bit more. It’s okay to enjoy things and relish in them.”
