“No matter where I am, it’s all about one thing: My fans.”

“Whenever I have free time, I usually just sleep, play games, watch movies, see my friends, have a drink. Basically, I do whatever other people do in everyday life.”

“I love playing online games with my fans.”

“I have to stay positive and try to find time to do what I want to do while working at the same time.”

“It may be very difficult to keep the virtues of purity, passion, and sacrifice of love in real life.”

“I feel cool and comfortable in Bench. It’s very casual, easy on the body.”

“My goal is to change perception about giving money for charity. A lot of people still think that this is only for the rich. I used to think like this, but this isn’t true. Begin by donating the smallest amount you can afford. You’ll soon realize how easy it is to support worthy causes.”

“Whether you want to be a good actor or singer, you need to be responsible and professional – and you have to learn to work well with other people and be a team player.”

“I think the only way to return my followers’ kindness and show my appreciation for their support is to become a better actor – and to help people any way I can.”

“I try to see others as they are and also to show myself as I am.”

“If I get married in the future, I want to have a relationship like friends with my other half. It’d be best if we can communicate often.”

“There are many ways to push for much-needed reforms: One way is to make a donation. It doesn’t matter much whether you contribute publicly or in a private way – either way is good. What matters is your true intention.”
