Jung Il-woo’s first Fan Meeting celebrating his 10 years took place in Japan. In this part 1 post I will cover his press conference and the in route airport photos.
This press conference took place at the Shinjuku Cultural Center and some lucky fans got to be present! Here is a video and the questions he was asked translated via Google Translate.
My Screen Captures:
“Everyone, it’s been a long time.” Jung I-woo greeted in Japanese as he appeared in a refreshing spring coordination.
Q. This is the first fan meeting held this year, and it will be a fan meeting for the 10th anniversary of my debut.
Ten years have passed since I debuted early and I am able to do the fan meeting of the 10th anniversary like this, I feel very emotional. I am very happy and happy to see you all last year and see you again this time. In Korea I will be 30 years old in a few months, but looking back over things in my 20’s, I had something tough and there were really many happy things. Among them, I believe that thanks to all the fans always being there, I could overcome various things so far and continue to do activities like this. I would like to take this opportunity to convey my gratitude to all my fans.
Q. It was a fan meeting in the midst of drama shooting in Korea.
I would like to see you more frequently, but fan meetings have only been available once a year …. However, when I am a painful person I can heal and really heal you and return home after meeting you guys. So, rather than being a simple fan meeting, everyone is healed, and I want to make it as time to deliver healing to everyone. That’s why preparing for fan meeting seems to be more difficult than preparing for drama shooting, is not it? Since I’d like to show new figures and new aspects to fans every time at fan meeting, if someone who came to see 10 years ago came, “Jung, I grew up!” I think that it is becoming a fan meeting that you can think.
Q. What kind of place would you like to see in particular this time?
This time I wanted to shorten the distance between the stage and the audience seats as much as possible, and there are also performances performed at the audience seats. We are preparing events that you can enjoy with your fans. “I am with you” performance is also prepared. Since the members of the band who are coming together since last year are also together, I think that everyone will not get bored for two hours. It is the fans who are sitting behind you now, right? Are there any people who came for the first time today? (6 to 70% is raising hands) It was a serious thing … It may be that I fall in love with you for today. You may not get out of there (lol)
Q. Please tell me about the special role making for the drama “Cinderella and the four knights” being filmed and the atmosphere of the shooting site.
The reason for the appearance of this drama appearance was that the recently appeared “night guard diary” and “golden rainbow” had a sense of drama and a heavy character, so that they had a weight, so they finished their 20’s There was a feeling that I wanted to do romantic drama before. I have just finished shooting ten episodes right now, but I think that the style has changed significantly from the character I’ve played so far. There used to be a feeling that I wanted to do my best to act lazily and show my character anyway when I was acting, but now I am making efforts to be able to do it more natural, so I can see it with a fresh feeling I think. I heard that in Japan “When you are a handsome guy ramen shop” I heard that it was popular with the cheapest, but it is definitely mentioned here that this new work is “You’re Beautiful Ramen Store” I think it is more interesting. So, I would like everyone to have great interest. I am having a lot of fun because this time filming with the actors of the same generation, so it’s fun, but also it’s the pressure that I become the first senior among the same-generation actors. So, everyone is asked about various performances. When asked like that, I feel like “I must do it myself properly.” The scene is really Japanese, and this drama is made by preliminary production, but thanks to that, I have plenty of time to talk about actors talking to each other and there is plenty of time to make a role, so this drama is I think that it may be good to expect truly.
Q. Is there anything remembered at my previous fan meeting?
Even though I had an event to do “wall dong” last year, it is very well remembered. Fan meeting has gone nearly 20 times, including other overseas countries so far, but as you can see more about what fans will be willing to do by repeating the times It is getting on. I am sorry that the time is short because it is the fan meeting of the 10th anniversary of the debut this time and it is regrettable that we did not have plenty of examination time as there was a shooting of the drama this time, but with the fans I think that I will have a different fan meeting than I have been preparing while thinking about communication and touching with the most importance.
Q. Please tell me if you have customs that I am doing for acting.
I myself think that the style of acting has changed a lot. I thought that this work would be more relaxing and able to perform. I always try to think about the tone of the dialogue, the expression, the analysis of the character, the role making, which I am careful about when acting. I try to make it possible to relax naturally, but I am trying to indirect experience what I usually do because I am making such a role. For example, reading a book, watching a movie, watching a drama, and I like going to an art museum and watching a picture very well. I like traveling very much, I came to Japan last December and traveled alone. I traveled alone on Tokyo, Nagoya and other areas on the Shinkansen for about 20 days, but in that way I closed off the last time in my twenties in Japan. I think that such a thing is also supporting acting as an actor. When it comes to support of the mind in acting life, I have experienced a lot of slumps so far and there were many hard times in acting. Even when I felt sick, I read tears sent by fans and shed tears. However, it was the existence of all of the fans that supported the mind when such a hard time. Even though I’m too busy, I feel like I want to meet with fans, especially those who have been accumulating over the years with Japanese fans, everyone who came to see me from long ago, really got in law It seems like they have accumulated something like that. Please come and visit me when you are doing at a small venue …. It became a large crowd at such a big place now, but it took such a long time that the feelings like in-law were accumulated among Japanese fans I do not think so.
