Vernon High Cut Interview
Q: At one interview you said that you have lots of interest towards octopus, but these days, do you have any animals that you are hooked to except for octopus?
VN: Recently the cat that we’ve grown for 10 years has died. Dodamie. I heard my little sister cried all day long. It was because the cat has specially listen well to her. Whatever comforting words I give, it’s still hard, I was just beside my sister and we became sad together.
Q: At the time of your appearance on <Show me the money 4>, in the “How I see myself” (part) you answered “Very relaxed.” When is the moment that you are best relaxed?
VN: Previously with my heart/feelings saying “I should do well on this stage”. I went up to the stage. I felt burdened and a feeling that is too much. Now with the feeling “Let’s enjoy the stage just like how we did during the practice”, I go up (the stage). Because of that, I can think of relaxation and it makes me try more various things. The fans’ reactions are good too. This is a realization that I got recently.
Q: Everything may seem relaxed but there’s moments of tension, right?
VN: I’m very nervous whenever we do variety (shows). It’s very difficult.
Q: Your visuals show that you’re a cold guy but I heard you’re more on the slacking side. I heard Dino chose you as the member who he/they have to take care of the most.
VN: That’s right. Not a long time ago, we went to Jakarta and there was a swimming pool in the accommodation. But I put my wallet in my swimsuit’s pocket and water went in it. The cafe coupons inside got wet too. (laughs) I’ve lost them lots of times that I haven’t even almost used them yet.
Q: You must have heard a lot about “actor award”. And your nickname is “Vercaprio” too. Is there a reason why you had to be a singer, not an actor?
VN: Actually I didn’t start with a let’s-practice-hard-and-debut-coolly-heart but it was a ‘somehow’. I attend simple classes but it was very hard. Just like how it says, it’s like dying so I look around but the other members have been for a longer time than me, I clenched my teeth until the end. 'Ah, these hyungs are doing it too so I can’t give up’. Actually at first I endured those feelings. Time passed by like that and little by little the goal of being a singer has been determined. And now I feel the worth (of the hard work) the most when I go up the stage. It’s not like I’m jumping while being hyped alone but like jumping around with the audience whenever they cheer for us!
