NCT‘s two talented members, Doyoung and Jungwoo, recently participated in a gorgeous pictorial and interesting interview with Cosmopolitan Korea. In their interview, the two discussed several sweet details about their warm friendship! Including their similarities and what they learn from one another.
One similarity the two share that the interviewer pointed out was the fact that the two are not afraid to express their emotions.
Q: It seems like both of you are honest when it comes to expressing your emotions and often shed tears.
That’s right. Thinking about it now, if I were to hold it in and keep it to myself, nothing would be solved, rather, it would become toxic. No matter whether it’s to the fans, or to my members, I try my best to truley express myself. Anyway, this job is really fun. The thing about me having a lot of tears is true too (laughs).
Doyoung added that expressing your emotions openly is a must to keep a healthy mind and body. He also shared that showing emotions is very much necessary for their jobs as artists as well!
It’s the same as anything, but I think that in order to work with health both in mind and body, you have to be honest with your feelings of joy or sadness. If you hide your emotions and don’t express them, they will accumulate. In order to do this job, which I like, a little longer and healthier, it seems that being honest with yourself is the wisest way and a great power. Anyway, I’m really happy now doing what I want to do.
In light of being in touch with their emotions, Doyoung and Jungwoo shared that though they share many similarities, there is still a lot they learn from one another.
Q: You both have a lot of things in common . . . coincidentally, you are both born in February, and you both are the only Kim’s amongst the NCT members. To the two of you who have many things in common, what is your existence to each other?
I recieve a lot of help from Doyoung, Whatever I do, I always seek advice from Doyoung first, and there are a lot of things I learn while watching him. Also, since my hyung is very smart and has more experience than me, he deals with unexpected situations maturely. In many ways, he is an indispensable hyung to me.
Following his dongsaeng’s sweet words, Doyoung discussed how Jungwoo is always someone he can turn to when he’s stressed.
Often when I am anxious, or when I’m overthinking about my surroundings, Jungwoo is like a real little brother to me and is always by my side assuring me. And he’s always making things fun, because of that, It’s fun to be with him. I’m the hyung but I depend on Jungwoo a lot.
