GOT7’s Jinyoung Discusses Why He Introduces Himself In Two Ways, His Father’s Advice About Dreams, And More
In the video before the interview, Jinyoung introduced himself, saying, “Hello. I’m Park Jin Young and GOT7’s Jinyoung.” When asked about the reason for that, he explained, “It’s actually difficult. There are many people who work under the name of Jinyoung, so I’ve been introducing myself by adding my group’s name GOT7, but now that I’m working as Park Jin Young, I think I’m going through a transition process between the two names. So when I introduce myself, I purposely say both names.”
Jinyoung’s father once said, “Those who break their dreams will fulfill their dreams.” Jinyoung shared he still deeply empathizes with it and commented that it’s not a grandiose thing to say. He remarked, “When you only think about your dreams, it eventually inflates in many directions because it’s just a thought. The quote is pointing out that we should be realistic about that. Everything starts from the bottom, but if you keep dreaming, it’s hard to stay true to reality. I think my father meant that I shouldn’t think about what comes after the job but to accept reality first and then make an effort.”
When asked what kind of story he wants to tell as an actor in the future, Jinyoung answered, “I think it would be great if I could be an actor who can tell any story. To put it a little bit more bluntly, I want to be one who can portray what the director and writer want in a more sharp and accurate way and deliver it to the viewers.”
