JKS’ White Valentine’s Day
Question: What habit do you have before bedtime?
Before I sleep, I will think about what I’m going to do the next day, maybe it’s work, maybe it’s only a friends’ gathering. To think about what may happen the next day, I feel, makes things run more smoothly.
Question: Although a celebrity loses a lot of freedom, at what times do you think being a celebrity is good?
When I’m given special treatment and service at restaurants, or special discounts when I buy things.
Question: If you can return to any period in your life, which period would you choose?
I want to return to the time when I was 20 years old. I didn’t worry about many things and I was leading a very happy life.
Question: Did you inherit your handsome looks from your father or mother?
Other people say when I smile, I look like my mother. When I’m expressionless, I look like my father.
Question: Celebrity students find it especially tough. What do you think school means to you?
Celebrities’ work is a bit more special, so it is actually not easy to make friends, especially friends of the same age. But in school, one can befriend more peers, so the school is a good place for me to know more friends.
