"I'd be lying if I say it's easy being a singer and an actor at the same time. However, I try to find happiness within. I am happy by just being able to work".
Do Kyung-soo is all smiles even though he's very busy. He's been busy as D.O from EXO and actor Do Kyung-soo who starred in drama "100 Days My Prince", and films "Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days" and "Swing Kids" within the last year.
"Both have their appeals. As a singer I can face the audience personally and I feel happy seeing the people cheer for me. When I'm acting I can express various emotions through my characters and get satisfaction from that".
Not everyone can play two parts at the same time; what are some problems he might experience? "There are inconveniences trying to be a singer and an actor at the same time".
"I can't always be 100% focused on one side. I think I can be better with more time and effort, but it's I can't do that and that's the only downside to it".
He relieves his work stress by cooking. He says he would have become a cook if he weren't a singer or an actor, and he wants to be a licensed cook.
He claims his mother helped him to enjoy cooking. "I think about recipes and wonder what they'd taste like. I cooked for my teammates and they liked it".
He watches a lot of movies, too. He said, "I like movies and I go to the movies whenever I can. I recently watched "Park Hwa-young" and I was impressed by the natural performance of the cast".
His fans are his source of his energy. He wants to be a singer and an actor this year, too. He's looking forward to the EXO comeback. After the end-of-year concert, EXO is taking a month off to prepare for its February comeback.
As an actor, he's thinking about what role to play next. "I draw a line on the characters that I want or don't want to be, but I also want to be in a human drama".
What does Do Kyung-soo dream about? He hesitated at the question and answered slowly but sincerely. He wants to give out energy through his songs and his acting.
"Challenge is growth for me. I learned how to tap dance through this movie and I want to extend the number of things I can do. They can be a foothold to the things I want to do, maybe cooking? (laughs)".
