SUNGHOON used the word “fun” several times while reflecting on the past few months. He said it’s been more fun than nerve-racking. And that he’s having even more fun than ever before. In the five months since his last interview, SUNGHOON has yet again changed, his words showing deeper ambition and affection for his work.
Perhaps when you keep exposing yourself to these new environments you one day find you have changed.
SUNGHOON: I think my personality is naturally changing in some ways, including when we’re promoting. Maybe I’m a little more “E” than I used to be. (laughs) I try out everything I want to do and I usually end up saying everything I want to say, I think. I try not to pay attention to what other people think. And sometimes I really manage not to.
But when you took an MBTI test in the “EN-BTI” video, you said, “To be honest, I don’t know myself … but I’m a little different when I’m with you guys and when I’m out.” It seems like you’re still getting to know yourself.
SUNGHOON: I’m really cheery, talkative and playful when I’m with the other members, but I think I become calm and quiet when I’m alone. I joke around with my sister a lot the same way I do with the other members. When I’m around people I’m comfortable with, like my family, I tend to have a slightly different personality. But I’m also different when I’m alone, so it’s actually hard to keep track. I’m not even sure myself now. (laughs)
Would you say you can more freely express yourself when you’re around people you feel secure with?
SUNGHOON: I think that’s part of it, too. I think I feel really comfortable with the other members since there’s six other people I can rely on. And they have no problem expressing their feelings, which puts me at ease, too. I think the people I surround myself with are a really positive influence on me.
