Because I had schedules I didn't have the time to walk around in the streets. But There are many cases when I'm asked for a sign and I usually just wrote the name (of the recipient) recently, there are many mothers asking for it. When I asked how their age goes, there are 45-year old ones and people who are over 50 year old. Seeing those people make me feel (about the increasing popularity). So right now I cannot simply write their names, I thought a lot and added a "-mother" at the end. There are many things that are changing like that, and I feel that the mothers generation know about me too now."

When being asked of how his parents reaction are, he said "My parents feel very proud. Recently they came to the VIP premiere (of Swing Kids), they really like it that they cried. They said they like it very much. I just keep thinking of wanting to be a son that my parents can be proud of. Yesterday I went to my home, and usually I don't came to family greetings but because it's the end of the year I was told to came for a few times. During that time (my family) wanted to hear the stories about 100 days husband, and when they hear about it I feel that they're proud of their son."

Remembering the EXO members who came to the VIP Premiere, kyungsoo revelaed "Honestly, gathering all seven members is not easy but they came to the VIP Premiere and watched the movie.

On his continuous challenge of different genre and character since the movie 'Cart', Doh Kyungsoo said "First off I don't have any greed in doing a movie with certain spectrum.

Doh Kyungsoo "Practicing tap dance during free time, EXO members said it's noisy..."

Today, Doh Kyungsoo talked about the tap dance practice that he underwent despite his busy schedules "It's not tap dancing but when we have a dance for another scene, we didn't have enough time to practice for it. However since I can practice tap dancing directly just by stomping my feet to the ground, practice was rather easy. At first it was really difficult, I was no different from other co-actors. But since as an EXO member I also dance, I used to think that I was able to process it easier than other casts, but when I did it for the fist time my body became stiff. Since in the movie Kisoo is shown to have an exceptional talent in dancing, when I'm practicing EXO's dance routine I would also practiced tap dancing during the breaks. When I'm practicing the members would said that it's very noisy. However I just keep practicing. Then after the members watched the movie they said that they really want to learn tap dancing."

On being asked whether he's feeling any after-effect from tap dancing, he revealed "I'm still feeling the after effect now. When my feet (touches) the ground I tap danced. That's just how charming the dance is. It's frightening how the habit still remain even after the movie ended."

'Swing Kids' Doh Kyungsoo "Shaved head, a must-do choice for the movie...it was rather comfortable"

"I personally think the movie is really fun and enjoyable. When I was filming it I'm anticipating on how it would turn out and because the director met my expectation on top of the editing that is done very well, I shed a few tears. I cried during the second part of the movie because of Roh Kisoo's brother Roh Kijin and I cried a lot at the movie's ending."

Doh Kyungsoo expresses his thought on shaving his head and speaking north korean accent that is required for his role in the moive "There are many things that I must do to become Roh Kisoo and of course some of them are quite burdening but in terms of a shaved head that I must do for the characters, I didn't hesitate on it at all. After shaving my head it was rather comfortable. It's comfortable when I'm showering and preparation time also decreased significantly. In the case of north korean accent, I don't have the chance to hear it from my surroundings so I was worried but because of the north korean language teacher help I quickly gotten used to it."

The (tap dancing) stage would look cool whether it's done by all the members or by himself, on this he replied while laughing "I think it'd look great but I have to ask the member first. Baekhyun did tap dancing earlier than me because of his musical, and while preparing for the movie I also fell in love with tap dancing."

Doh Kyungsoo revealed that he tried ticketing for the first time in his life to watch gummy's concert, "I was always on the player side so (from watching the concert) I realized how it feels like as an audience to watch the show of a singer that I like. When I was listening to senior gummy songs, my heart are beating fast and I think of having the desire to sing".

And thanks to that I gained many things, so I don't think I can play down the enjoyment I feel from it. I want to do this for a lifetime."
