10: Do you have plans to make appearances on variety shows to promote "WOOCHI"?
Gang: Actors have to talk about themselves a lot when they appear on such shows but I don't like talking about myself too much. I appeared on KBS' "Happy Together" a few years ago and I think that suited me the best because all I had to do was sing.

10: Then are there any variety shows you enjoy watching these days?
Gang: I've been watching "Two Nights and One Day" from KBS' "Happy Sunday" and MBC' "Infinite Challenge".

10: Would you not consider making a guest appearance on "Two Night and One Day"? I have a feeling it would suit you.
Gang: The producers of the show actually called me before shooting in Changwon because it's my hometown but I didn't go.

10: Do you have any thoughts to return to dramas?
Gang: None. My fans have been asking me to but I've told them I won't. And it's not because I don't trust the producers but I don't believe in the system of how dramas work. I don't like the fast tempo on set. I work slowly -- I'm the type that needs a lot of time with my acting but it's hard to do that while shooting dramas. I've never thought of appearing in dramas since "Magic".

10: Do you enjoy watching TV?
Gang: I watch it but only the sports channels. Always channels number 501, 503 and 506. (laugh) I watch mostly soccer and baseball.
10: The Premier League for soccer?
Gang: Yes. But I'm having a rough time trying to watch Park Joo-young's matches since he moved to the French league because of the time difference. The matches for the Premier League will air at 10 P.M. in Korea sometimes but it's very difficult with the French league because they usually air at around 3 or 4 A.M.

10: As much as you like soccer, you must have some things to say about the World Cup drawings. Is there a team you hope wins other than Korea?
Gang: I usually root for the teams that have players I like. I hope England does well since they have players like Steve Gerrard.

10: Do you have any fashion tips for guys being the fashionista you are?
Gang: You just have to invest a lot of time and money in clothes. You have to study it a lot, do a lot of shopping and read fashion magazines. But there's a small number of magazines for men so if you want to learn more, you should read foreign publications or even look at books with collections if you're even more serious.

10: You're mindset is changing as you age but why doesn't it show on your face?
Gang: I could tell (I changed) when I monitored myself on screen. I used to look young for my age in the past, like a kid. But I think that changed this time and the director said so too.

10: It's a bit unique to see someone as good looking as you speaking with a certain dialect. Would you consider changing it?
Gang: I would like to. I talked to Song Kang-ho about it since he talks in a Gyeongsang Province dialect but he said I should speak however way I want. I'm still thinking of changing it though because although he is correct in some ways, I feel deep down inside that it's not right for me to speak with a dialect.
