Highlight member Gikwang
recently posed for fashion magazine 'Cosmopolitan' in a pictorial titled "In My Room."
The idol star sat down for a photo shoot and also an exclusive interview.
Q: If you look at one's social media page, you're able to figure out their overall lifestyle. Yours seem to revolve around 'soccer, work, and selfie.'
Haha. Since I've become so busy nowadays, I haven't gotten around to playing soccer as much.
Q: Likewise, you recently finished promoting Highlight's first album, returning to the stage.
I am very happy about the results as a '9-year rookie group.' At the same time, I feel 'relieved,' that we were able to successfully promote our album without anyone getting hurt.
Q: There was one time where you revealed your personal lifestyle on a variety show. Your house was very clean, and you took care of yourself in terms of your health and beauty. Do you like living alone?
Yes, I like living by myself. I enjoy having my own space, it's comfortable.
Q: Aren't there some disadvantages to living alone as well? For example, doing the laundry and cleaning the house all by yourself.
Definitely. There are times when after I use up all my energy from work and I come home to find all these chores piled up. Since I'm the only person, I tend to clean everything all at once. My parents also come over to help from time to time.
Q: Where would you say is the one place you spend time the most at home?
In the living room. That's where I eat, drink beer, and watch TV, especially soccer. I usually have that channel on while playing video games.
Q: It seems an advantage to living alone is being able to buy whatever you like.
Haha. That's right. You were going to ask about my shoe shopping fetish, right? It's true, my love for shoes has not changed. But I am trying my best to spend less.
Q: Apart from the usual things like music, movies, and entertainment in general. What is the most important to you?
Health, of course! That's why I take supplements. I recently bought a vitamin D supplement. They say that 90% of people these days lack in vitamin D. Don't laugh, it's true!
