After nearly four years together, it’s no surprise that K-pop boy band CROSS GENE knows each other inside out, and they definitely have no qualms dishing the dirt on one another during an exclusive email interview. We’ve yet to see them in real life (ICYMI: It’s D-3 to their Singapore fanmeeting this Saturday!) and the lads are already cracking us up with their hilariously brutal revelations. Find out which member’s obsessed with girl groups, showers the least, the most likely to die in a zombie apocalypse, and more.
Who’s the most awkward around girls? Sangmin
Seyoung: He’s a simple countryside boy and he gets embarrassed really easily.
Takuya: There’s actually a story behind Sangmin. We were once on a show called THE SHOW and Sangmin was made to do a punishment because he lost a game – and it was to get signatures from female idol groups. He was so nervous that he was lost for words when he approached them!
Takuya (Gorgeous Gene)
Who takes the longest to wake up in the morning? Takuya and Seyoung
Sangmin: [Seyoung’s] the oldest member and it seems to me that it takes a lot of effort for him to wake up. (Laughs)
Takuya: I’ve always been terrible with mornings. I’m even nicknamed the ‘king of latecomer’ because I’d be late for school for at least five times a month. I’m sorry…
Yongseok: I always see [Takuya] getting ready 15 minutes before his appointment. It’s a mystery.
Sangmin (Organic Gene)
Who spends the least time in the shower? Sangmin and Takuya
Takuya: Since we’re living together, we can tell that Sangmin showers quickly. The other members are always saying “You’re done already?” [to him].
Casper: Takuya is the tallest member of the group so it’s faster for the water from the showerhead to reach his body.
Casper (Wild Chic Gene)
Who’ll be the last member to get married? Seyoung and Takuya
Sangmin: Seyoung’s a little crazy. He has very high expectations for women so it’ll take him time to decide on someone.
Casper: Takuya’s really tall so it’ll be hard to find someone who matches his height.
Takuya: Me. I still don’t know what ‘love’ is…
Seyoung (Miracle Gene)
Who’s the most obsessed with girl groups? Seyoung
Sangmin and Takuya: He’s always watching girl group videos!
Shin (Presh Gene)
Who’s the most likely to cry when CROSS GENE wins first place in a music show? Shin
Shin: I’m the type to be easily moved to tears. I get touched very quickly.
Yongseok (Mypace Gene)
Who’ll be the first one to die in a zombie apocalypse? Seyoung, Takuya, and Sangmin
Takuya: Seyoung’s the kind who claims that he could take on the zombies on his own, but end up getting bitten by the zombies. It’s the same with our choreography as well. Like, he’d say that he can perfect the dance moves, but he wouldn’t be able to do it in the end!
Yongseok: Takuya would think it’s a chore to run away, and would rather succumb and live his life as a zombie.
Shin: Sangmin’s really naïve and would probably attempt to make friends with the zombie, which will eventually lead him to his death.
