Q: You’re getting a lot of attention, and you’re getting busier than you could’ve imagined. Do you tend to keep your daily life well in the midst of change?

I’m still just a rookie so I get confused sometimes. I can’t tell if I’m me from the past or if I’m me in the present. Both of them are correct. I guess it’s because I’m not experienced enough yet, right? That’s why when I’m alone, I keep busy doing things. Instead of forgetting, I will take my thoughts and write them into words.

Instead of being confused with his thoughts, Hwang In Yeop revealed he tries to write everything down. Whether it be his thoughts or his aspirations, Hwang In Yeop shared that time alone is the best method for him rather than meet up with other people.

Whenever I have time alone, I write down my thoughts rather than trying to keep doing something or forgetting things. It’s called a mind map. I think I’m trying to think concisely by writing down what I’m thinking and what I want to do. I spend enough time on my own. Rather than meeting up with people, I think it’s more appropriate and helpful for my current situation to listen to music or walk alone.

As for what he wants to do when he lives alone, Hwang In Yeop stated he wants to enjoy his hobby of cooking!

I Like cooking. I made tteokbokki a while ago and it was more delicious than I thought. I think I do the seasoning well. I don’t just want to put bowls on the table, I want to lay out a tablecloth and set them beautifully. I can’t go long, but (Laughs).
