1 Some day I will marry and become a father, but I should've already had 2 kids considering my current age. In fact, my friends are parents of elementary students, but despite my age, I am still very young [mentally]. Just by what I see from others around me, I can tell that getting married, creating a family, and having kids is extremely difficult. I think that's also why my younger, married friends seem more like brothers to me.
2 I prefer old Korean music like Lee Seung Hwan, Lee Moon Se, and Yoo Jae Ha. However, among the current musicians, I think GD [G-Dragon] and IU have really nice sensitivity. They're really cool. Anyway, after taking a drink, the music I play is from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. I'm really getting old, right?
3 I think (social media) is so scary, I think it's a tool that makes people lonelier. You feel insecurities you don't need to feel on social media.
4 [On his role as a father] It gave me a chance to think about how I would treat my child in the future if I have children. I don't want to crush the child's sense of hope, but I also don't want to lie. It actually made me more afraid of raising a child,
5 [On his experience on Train to Busan] I've filmed realistic action films before so I thought they were doable, but fighting with the zombies was extremely complicated.
6 [ On his acting career] I've grown more apprehensive. I have these ambitions that I don't want to lose sight of. I think might become self critical about the things I try to change about myself as I grow older and more knowledgable, more so than before.
7 [On his experience on Train to Busan] I naturally get scared easily. When I was young, I hated going to haunted houses. So filming with zombies for this movie was too scary for me.
8 [On his experience on Train to Busan] There were so many times a zombie caught up to me while we were filming. I heard the director yell cut and stood in place, but the zombie actors behind me couldn't hear it and kept running after me. So there are lots of behind-the-scenes videos of me looking pretty stupid.
9 [On his experience on Train to Busan] I thought zombie and action films were a piece of cake, but I struggled.
