2AM member and actor Seulong shared all to Newsen, including his wrapped up drama "Hogu"s Love", about 2AM, J.Y.Park,and more.
About his "Hogu"s Love" co-star UEE, he said, "UEE and I are close because we"ve been in the industry together since she was very young. Since she lost weight, she got really pretty. I like her energy, and she"s so kindhearted. I was affected a lot by her energy."
Some might have previously perceived actressLee Soo Kyungin a negative light due to her statements at the press conference for "Hogu"s Love", but Seulong only had good things to say about her.He said, "Lee Soo Kyung and I are 9 years apart, but we match well. She"s really good at acting. She puts in a lot of effort, and she was born with acting talent. It was really nice to be partners with her, and I received a lot of help too. After our kiss scene, we teased each other by saying "Your skills are way above average.""
Seulong also talked about his character as a gay man and yet another kiss scene with co-star Choi Woo Shik.He said, "To be honest, when I filmed with Woo Shik, I burst out laughing just by looking at his face. For the romantic scenes, we acted them out in an exaggerated way for fun and had a lot of fun filming. For the kiss scene, Woo Shik really did fall asleep. It was obvious that he"d be tired because he filmed 22 hours a day. If Woo Shik was conscious during that scene, he probably wouldn"t have been able to film it because it was so funny, but he kept sleeping. That"s why we were able to film the scene easily. However, after seeing that scene, UEE said "that"s dirty." To be honest, I was more nervous filming that kiss scene than I was filming the kiss scene with Soo Kyung."
Seulong also talked about leaving JYP Entertainment and joining SidusHQ.He said, "I really liked my time as a 2AM member at JYP Entertainment, and I respect J.Y. Park hyung more than anyone else in the world. He"s an amazing person. He"s the one who molded my life in my 20s. I learned so much during my time at JYP. I"m now 29 years old, and I was looking for a company that could help me achieve my goals and help me try new challenges. That"s when I found SidusHQ."
He continued, "I was in JYP Entertainment for so long that it wasn"t an easy decision. I had a good talk with J.Y. Park hyung. He wasn"t disappointed. I worked hard in my activities. J.Y. Park hyung supported me and was proud of me of my decision to go towards a better path."
He also talked about how some netizens thought 2AM would disband after Seulong and Jinwoon left JYP.He defused those rumours by saying, "[The members] are on really good terms. The day before the news of [Jinwoon and I] moving into different companies came out, we said, "There"ll probably be news about us disbanding or terminating" on our Kakao group chat. But that"s not true, so there"s no need to have a big reaction. We believed that the honest news articles would solve the misunderstanding. We don"t have any planned activities for 2AM as a group yet. To be honest, I don"t even know my schedule for next month. Since there isn"t anything officially planned yet, I can"t say anything, but what"s for sure is that we will group together again. We still have a deep affection for each other and cherish each other."
Seulong was also asked about his dating style and ideal type to which he replied, "I"m like a "hogu." I"m the type to give it all. It"s been a while since I"ve dated. Over a year. I don"t have a girlfriend at the moment. I really used to have no thoughts on marriage, but these days I think about it. I believe that family will overcome loneliness and hardships. My ideal type is, as always, Shin Min Ah."
