After theÂ 26th Golden Disk AwardsÂ that were held in Osaka, Japan earlier in the month,Â IlganSports caught up withÂ Super JuniorÂ to discuss their second â€˜Daesangâ€˜ they received, their second after previouslyÂ winning the award back in 2009.
IlganSports shared the interview with the public on January 26th, check out the interview with the membersÂ below!
-Congratulations on winning â€˜Daesangâ€™ for your album.
â€œThank You. I really canâ€™t believe that we have won two Daesang to date at the Golden Disk Awards, it really does feel like Iâ€™m dreaming. Weâ€™re so thankful to have won four awards. We know that is only possible because of all our ELFs, and our beloved fans all over the world.â€
-Your performance was really amazing tonight.
â€œActually, we started last yearâ€™s world tour right here (Osaka Kyocera Dome). We saw that a lot of our fans who came to that last year were here for us now. We were so touched and excited that I think we were able to put on a better performance. There was also the fact that we were performing at the Golden Disk Awards, and that carried a lot of weight.â€
-How do you feel about Ilgan Sports coining you the next Kang Ho Dong?
â€œI saw the article, and of course I was excited. Part of me feels like itâ€™s unmerited, while I also feel a new sense of responsibility. Just so thankful.â€
-Seems like youâ€™ve found your place on shows like â€˜Star Kingâ€™ and â€˜Strong Heartâ€™.
â€œItâ€™s a relief. To be honest, it was really bad when Ho Dong hyung left and the ratings were at an all-time low. There was also talk about changing the MCs and whatnot. So Boom hyung and I decided that we needed to work harder, and things seem to be much better on set now.â€
-You have to enlist in the military this year.
â€œYes, itâ€™s true. I need to go this year. I think maybe around the fall time. I want to do as much as possible before then. Maybe thatâ€™s why, but, I truly value everything I do and everything around me.â€
-What are your dreams and goals for the future?
â€œI would like to plant Super Junior schools all over the world.â€
