Despite poor rating numbers of JTBC's 'The Package,' there were many who praised the quality of the production and the fact that it featured various beautiful sights from France. CNBLUE's Jung Yong-hwa, who starred as the male lead in the drama, talked about how the drama influenced him. Interestingly, he also revealed who he'd like to be born as in his next life.
As noted by website Soompi, Jung Yong-hwa, who is approaching 30 years of age, sat down for an interview with TVreport where he looked back on his youth and revealed that if there was a next life, he'd like to be born as himself. "Even if I were born again, I would want to be born as myself. My life is truly a happy one," the "Closer" singer said.
He was also quite happy of his latest drama 'The Package' and said it had a positive impact on his life. "I filmed 'The Package' last year, so I felt like I was watching the entire drama [as a viewer] when I watched it this year. It was a drama that, when I watched it from the viewer's point of view, allowed me to consider it positively from a new angle. I was happy to be a part of such a drama, and I think I'll remember it for the rest of my life," Yong-hwa said.
The CNBLUE frontman also reflected back on his youth. "I became a trainee after I'd already taken my college entrance exam," he said, adding, "I moved to Seoul and began my training when I was 20, and if I look back at my life up until age 29, I would never have imagined that my life would turn out like this." On being asked what his thoughts are regarding nearing thirty years of age, Jung Yong-hwa said, "I thought that I'd be depressed, but instead, I'm excited."
Yong-hwa said that singer Yoon Do-hyun was a big influence on him, growing up. He revealed, "I watched the TV show 'Yoon Do-hyun's Love Letter' as a viewer, thinking, 'I like music, too.' I grew up watching 'Yoon Do-hyun's Love Letter' and was able to produce a song together with Yoon Do-hyun for my first solo album, and that fact in itself is something that I am so proud of."
