Wonho Reveals Reason For Starting His YouTube Channel, Hopes For 2021, And More
Wonho recently sat down for an interview with Dazed Korea!
Revealing his determination to look his best for his solo comeback, Wonho shared, “I don’t drink much, and I also try not to go out. I spend most of my time exercising. I wanted to work hard and become the solo artist with the best body, but I think I fell short of my own expectations.”
Wonho also spoke about his new YouTube channel “ohhoho.” He clarified that since YouTube is not his main job, the channel doesn’t have a clear purpose. “I create videos as long as they don’t interfere with my scheduled activities,” he explained.
As for the reason why he started the channel, Wonho showed his affection for his fans as he said, “Actually, I’m mostly making content that fans tell me they want to see. I started making videos since I thought that the fans would want to see what I’m up to when they’re bored or when I’m not doing promotional activities for a long period of time.”
Wonho then shared his desire to become more proficient in foreign languages to better communicate with his fans. “Japanese was the first foreign language I ever studied, and I’ve done a lot of activities in Japan so I started learning Japanese first. I also started studying English to broaden my horizons,” he revealed. “Even if I can’t speak it naturally, I started learning English because I figured I should be able to hear or read something and understand its meaning.”
When asked about his next album, Wonho hinted that it will have a “sexy and dark” mood. He said, “I wanted to show everyone a different side of myself. Since my previous album had a more energetic and lively vibe, I tried to go for a more mature mood this time.”
Wonho said that his goals for 2021 are simple. “I think this will be the same for everyone, but I want COVID-19 to disappear,” he said. “It’s my dearest wish to be able to see fans’ faces when I perform. Additionally, I want to show everyone various sides of myself as a solo artist. I also really miss my fans who live overseas. The image of the fans I met while on tour is stuck in my head.”
