Part 1

My first experience with the alcohol was during the 3rd year in Elementary school. I went to my uncle’s house with my mother and drank it. I think it was an art event and drank the cherry wine as everyone was supposed to drink it. After drinking it, my entire face felt hot. That time, i decided not to drink this kind of awful things ever. But now, i am always immersing into alcohol. I am joking, i am joking! Although i love alcohol, and will even get drunk after drinking, I would not anyhow drink it. Staff often asked me “Why am i not drunk?” That’s because, me, when i am feeling drunk, just a little bit, i will immediately leave the place, bringing along my bag and other stuffs. What will happen if i am on a date? I will not touch alcohol when i am on a date but let’s say if i became sexy after i am drunk, you probably think that it will bother you.

The most beautiful part in woman… it’s still certainly her heart. Although appearance is also important, i think the woman who knows how to care for the others is the best. She doesn’t have to do anything special, she just has to respect my work. I feel that woman like this is the most beautiful. Next, if I don’t like woman who only cares about themselves, waiting for someone to do something for them yet doesn’t help, i cannot cope with them. However, i like woman who drives someone, giving the strength of positive. Woman who is gentle yet strong, i really like them.

Whenever i am stress and isn’t in a good condition, I will:
(Go for) Massage, sleep, eat, exercise, shopping, cook and read interior design magazines.
Now, in my Taiwan’s room, there’s actually around 100,000¥ worth of interior design magazines pilling up everywhere.

I have another dream, and that is to become a/an (interior) designer. Like for example, building something like ‘Jung Min Hotel’ and things like this. Why? What kind of interior; wall, furniture, lighting are things which only made the customer comfortable and happy. From now onwards, i will start to familiarize myself with interior design knowledge, you must support me!

I love jogging when i was a child and is always chosen to be the last to run in a relay. From that time, i am already popular. Valentine’s Day during my Elementary School was really impressive as I was always chased around by girls. That time, there were 2 girls from the same class as me chased me and said “Please date with me.” The flowers were right in front of me, who should i choose? OO? XX? OO? … (which one should i choose? I kept hesitating -_-!!) In the end, i gave OO the flowers (Okay, i decided to choose OO to be my girlfriend) But i announced this at XX’s house. Thinking of it now, it’s really bad. My dream that time (when i was a child) was to become a policeman. In Korea, it was broadcasting a documentary about police that time, after finishing the documentary, i felt touched. I will absolutely protect the citizens! The will to fight totally kindled. Now, even though there are times where I occasionally do not understand things related to police, i believe that in a certain extent, i can still a policeman. But because there are other missions for me to do, i cannot be a police already.

Part 2
Able to cook a dish personally is a good thing. Spending all of your energy, adding lots of love and seasoning, the sense of tastiness will increase and the feeling is really great. I wish you can cook ‘Ginseng Chicken’ for me because my mother is really an expert in cooking thus I will be strict with the taste. If the food you cook is awful, that is also acceptable. Even if there are no changes, we can continue to date but if we are married, that’s absolutely a no way. If you want to get married with me, you must first brush up your skill of cooking.

“What must we do to become fashionable?” People will often ask me this kind of question. Actually, the most important thing is “To love yourself”. You must take notice of the models with the same body shape as you and then read some fashion magazine. When you don’t understand your own style and just follow the latest fashion trend and buying them is not what a fashionista will display. And one more thing, that is to self invest. Talking about fashion, although there are people who buy lots of clothes, however, true fashion does not only reflected on your clothes and accessories. In my opinion, you should notice all these things, hairstyle, make-up skills, and (consuming) beauty food. This is the way of getting close to fashion.

When I was a student, I remembered playing the most popular ‘Bike speed’ competition. After that, I would play seesaw in the park. Even though this is not a popular game but when I was playing seesaw, I hit my friend’s ___*!! (*Translator Note: The word on the translation is small so i cannot figure what is this word :/) From that time onwards, I felt that the seesaw in the park is scary. I also love to prank, although teacher thinks that it’s cute too, I would get scolded by my teacher once in a while. Teacher will immediately scold those naughty students “Although you know XX’s explanation, you should also listen to OO when OO is speaking! Teacher has taught you for 2 years already right? Please respect the teacher!” But teacher will also say this “Although teacher has their own ideas, students also have their own positions. Let’s understand one another.” (Laughs) Teacher is still full of vitality till now, why not we go and listen to his lecture? Alright?

When I was in elementary school, I always insisted on getting the chairman position in the class. Of course, if one became a chairman of the class, they must hold a party at home to celebrate, this is a kind of customary. However, our family was not very wealthy that time thus we can’t hold a party at home. At that time, I cried and continuously shouted “I don’t want, I don’t want (I want to open a party)” After that, my mother prepared pizzas and fried chickens, I brought these food and went to the hill behind our school to celebrate with my classmates. At that time, life was very difficult. Although I can joke about it now, however when I listened to what happened at home when I was in elementary school, I felt that it is still difficult because my family isn’t wealthy that time. I only believed in myself, thinking of I need to live well, there was this strong will in my mind. I don’t like to rely on others and I did not talk about my family matters with anyone. My principle that time was to become the Park Jung Min today, till today, I still thought the same way. Now, the path I choose, I must walk down firmly, and I think I can only manage myself better.

I am
From the start of my entertainment job, it was actually in Elementary school. I was given a role in a TV drama, after which, I really wish to become an artist. When I was in Middle school, I entered a performing arts firm. The fee that was said we needed that time was around ¥20,000. My mother did not say anything and took out this sum of money immediately. That time, I still don’t know if I can return this sum of money back to my family and I was really stressed. However, my mother believed that I will return this money back to them eventually. But, I did not expect that there will be swindler in this society. I regretted that time and also suffered. But even at that time, I still did not give up. I was determined to fight back for myself, I need to work hard to a certain extent to show the society who cheated me. So I still cannot forget how I felt that time. I was thinking that I shouldn’t disappoint my mother. I must continue to work hard from now onwards.

Part 3
Japanese Culture

I did not have any cultural conflict completely after coming to Japan. There are all kinds of people when I went to Taiwan, Thailand and other countries. Because this is the place for this kind of people, so there will bound to have this kind of characteristic of people. Your personal perception towards this place will also change. In Japan, there are many natural scenery which are really beautiful. You will feel that you are mixed into one with the nature in Japan, it is really comfortable. Despite I have not completely experience Japan culture, I would like to try on a Kimono, will it suit me if I wears it? At the same time, I will like to play with the sword, putting on a wig and experience how is it like to become a warrior. But it is really dangerous. Hmm? Do you wish to see this kind of Jung Min? So, for this kind of character to come by, I must start to practice from now on.


I used to work when I was in middle school. Of course I hid my age, and because there’s school badge on my uniform, I will be doom if I am found (working). So I changed to casual wear and went to KFC just like this. I also felt that it was difficult frying chicken in the kitchen, however, the staffs around me were friendly and approachable. That was really a good experience. After that, I worked together with my sister, walking to every household to paste decorative label. But my legs really hurt that time. However, while frying the chicken or pasting the decorative label, I always had this dream, “I need to become an idol!” During the time when I was working, I felt the importance of money, that was a precious experience. Even till now, as I walk past KFC, I will recall this incident. No matter what, the key to fulfil your dream is not to give up.


Recently, the most luxury thing I did was that I bought a bag in Taiwan. The moment I saw that bag, I was attracted by its design at the first sight and I really like it and bought it straight away. The brand (of the bag) is a secret! But it is not the brand I really like. In short, I choose it according to its design. After that, I also spent a huge amount of money to move house. Ah! Yea, I finally thought of it!! I even bought a car for my father. However, it is not a classy brand. Next, I will work even harder so I can buy an even better car as a present. Then, after buying a car, I also wish to buy a piece of land so as to take a first step towards PARK Hilton hotel. There seems to have leftover land at the mountain in Korea, shall I go and survey it the next time? I also wish to open a shop of a brand of my own, and there are many things I would like to do too.

(T/N: I kinda messed up and forgot to translate MNO just now, i’ll just leave it to some other time when i am free to do it, sorry! ^^;;;;)


During my childhood, it was really popular collecting cards, stamps, etc. Although it was really popular, I have not done it before as life was rather hard at that time. Although I pretend that I was not interested, however, really, I really admire my friends who collected many cards. But I told him “I don’t have any interest in this kind of thing…” Despite there are idols who tried to hide their poor childhood, I did not hide mine specially. Although I felt ashamed letting others know my family situation and even wanted to hide it from my friends at that time. But now, I am facing it uprightly. Because I experienced it before, walking down the actor path now enable me to see everything clearly. Now, I put in even more passion into the idol path which I am walking.


I really like music. The first concert I went to watch was Korea’s Dream Concert. I went with my sister. Because I went there when I was in elementary school, I could not recall it clearly now. My deepest impression was that I held a white light stick with my sister and waved it hardly. But I could not really see the stage. Both of our seats were messed up with some other people, they got angry and we got reprimanded by them. Because that section was where yellow light stick holders were sitting. In Korea, we use different colour to separate fans. However, as time goes by, I went into the agency of that idol whose fans were holding onto yellow light stick. I don’t know if this is fate or what?


Although I will be asked “Who is the person you respect the most?”, “Which actor would you wish to become?”, however, I don’t answer them, I am sorry. I did not choose anyone specifically. Anyway, who set a rule whereby you must have a person you respect? You do not use your life to go beyond one’s thinking. I really hate it when I limit myself in a closet. I always look forward to see myself grow, so the only person I respect is always myself and only myself. I only believe in myself. My growing pace is still far and has never stopped before.


That’s because this is a secret, that’s why I am not going to say it. Hmm… But, because it’s you so I am going to say it this time.

Part 4
I don’t like long distance thing however, I like activity such as marathon.
Becoming idleness, I am not interested.
If it is a short distance, I can decide it immediately.
I am the type of person who can finish my holiday homework on the last day of holiday.
I am not good in continuously mugging for my work,
I am not the type of person whose motivation is weak,
but the type of person who can concentrate on anything immediately.
I am often aware that I am over hardworking,
but isn’t it better than leaving something unfinished/giving up?
Whenever I have my free time, I always think that I need to do something at the very least.
I can never ever keep calm.
So, for example, when I desperately did something and do not get nothing/no result at the end, this makes me annoyed.
What is this, all the effort and time I spent on this should get me something in return.
I use this kind of view in my everyday life.

When I was in middle school, I hope to go for a camp.
That very beautiful green mountain, the smell of the wind and the smile on my friend’s faces.
My relationship with my friends (in middle school) is still very good.
(Do you wish to go to World Heritage, or any famous tourist attraction?)
Basically, I am not really interested when someone asked me this kind of question.
Compared to where you go I believe with whom you are going with is more important.
For example, even if it’s not a famous tourist attraction, when I am going with people like my beloved family or friends, which will be the best scenery.
This time, go to wherever you wish to go.

Actually, cherishing the things you used before is really good.
The toys and letters I bought and received in the past.
I started to collect my own things from young… I will never throw them away without any reason.
Even when I am moving house this time, there are a lot of things I did not plan to throw them away,
and brought them along with me (laughs)
Thus now, the space where I collect my things became a huge problem.
Despite hearing in Japan that ‘断拾離’ is very popular now
(断: Things you do not need; 拾: Throwing away the things you always put at home but not using it; 離: Breaking away the nostalgia feeling you have for your item)
But I do not like to do this kind of thing.
Once I get in contact with the toy I have not been touching for a long time,
I will slowly recall that kind of playing feeling
You will not usually experience this kind of feeling normally.
For example, like clothes. When you bought it, there might be some incident,
but there’s a memory of which you bought this together with your friend.
There are many things I collected in my brain,
just think that this are not only the presence of items.
Won’t you feel pity for the items you randomly throw into the rubbish bin?

In the past, I always do not know how actors or singers should practice.
In Korea, there are many people who think that singers who are able to control their high notes are powerful.
There is a short period of time where I also consider them as powerful too.
But now, I know that it does not represent all.
“In order to express your intention to others, you have to work hard to get emotionally involved to sing the song.”
I believe that this is most important.

I am often being asked by others “What must you do to perform even better?”

Putting the lyrics or lines together and think yourself as the listener or viewer,
consider what you should do so that it will appeal to the audience.
After that, think of your own feeling and integrate into the song.

This is what I will do.

Upside Down
~Going back to the time where I was born, if I am a girl~

The lyrics above is ‘君色’ special edited version.

If I was born as a girl…
Then I will debut in a girl group!
Just joking.
Although, boys often said that if they were born as a girl, they will think of doing this and that.
In fact, I do not wish to be a girl.
Being a male also makes me really happy.
As you will have the ability of protecting others.
If I can choose to reborn,
I will still choose male.
Because after which, I can still continue to protect you.
