Most management might prefer dramas or movies to musicals. I was also told not to perform stage plays when I was at another agency, and I actually had a period of time off from performing on stage.”

The reason why I insist on doing stage play every year is that the stage is so good and fun to me. I think it’s because my MBTI is an “E” and I have good stamina. Even if I play soccer with Tang Jun-sang, I won’t lose. I think I run as much as Son Heung-min last year. I ran 50 times throughout my activities. Fortunately, I think I have good stamina.”

“I majored in Theater and Jo In Sung was a Theater major too. We were in the same year. He used to take great care of all Theater students. At that time, he was already big in the industry. Every time we used to go out to eat or drink, he would pay for it, even at those times when we went in large groups. A lot of guys went to the military at that time, including myself, and he would buy us something to eat on our day-offs as well.”
