Im Seulong discusses his friendship with 2AM members and his honest feelings about maintaining the team name after leaving JYP Entertainment.
In a recent interview with TV Report, he was asked, “How does it feel to have separated with 2AM?” and he answered, “It hasn’t sunk in quite yet. And I see them often, too. We usually meet on a daily basis. Changmin and I talk a lot on the phone and Jinwoon and Jokwon live in my neighborhood so I see them all the time. It may worry people from a third party’s point-of-view but we don’t.”
He even mentioned how the 2AM members cheered him on with curse words and laughter rather than warm support for his acting on tvN‘s “Hogu’s Love.” Seulong revealed, “[The other members] uploaded funny captures and gifs in our group chatroom and made fun of me. They would grab and save every new picture that came up,” and laughed.
He also shared, “Jinwoon and I met every night and had beer and chicken. I’m not that good at drinking– maybe two cans max– but I enjoy going out to drink,” and revealed his special relationship with his fellow member.
With the team name still being active while members are housed in different companies, when will their next album come out?
Im Seulong replied, “I can’t say anything because nothing has been decided yet. If we get the chance to regroup, we will– like the group g.o.d or Shinhwa,” and added, “But if the times change, we don’t know what will happen.”
One way or another, Im Seulong has built a new nest for himself now. It’s exciting to see what’s in store for him in the future.
“I’m excited too. I want to show others a side of myself that I haven’t shown before. I want to show everything that I can do, whether it be acting, singing, or being on variety shows,” and displayed great enthusiasm for the future.
