Park Jung Min’s humor Q&AQ: Using ‘Park Jung Min’ name for solo activities, how are you feeling? What’s your future plan?
A: Its really lonely working alone for activity. But because I am alone now, I must work extra hard so as to repay the fans for their love and support. Currently there are many plans on discussion; I am thinking of trying different aspect, like acting in a drama, I hope to act a lively and cheerful character, but challenging a bad character does not seems bad as well. Maybe in my personality, I really wish to act as a bad person.

Q: What’s the fun thing and secret in learning Chinese?
A: Wait, let me think… (Using Chinese) Haha…… Actually there isn’t any special secrets, only felt that it’s interesting, so I will specially bother to learn it well.

But learning languages seems to be like this, normally people learn words which are not nice quickly. (Laughs)
Q: Which Taiwan celebrity do you want to work with?
A: Li Wei Ann. The fans gave me his album and I listened to it. I admire his voice and music. So I hope to work with him. Others are… Wang Lee Hong, Jay Chou, I also like their music very much; I hope to work with them one day.

A: I like a lot of Taiwan cuisine, I feel like eating them all over again. The one I want to challenge is smelly tofu…. Ah, still cannot. (When he thinks of smelly tofu, his face expression changed.) The previous time when I visit Taiwan with the other members, I saw smelly tofus in one programme we participated, that smell……. It left a deep impression on me till now. Luckily I won the game, so I don’t need to eat it. But everyone said that it taste nice, I might try to challenge it the next time.
