During the talk, the male idol-turned-actor talked about his career as an actor, his role in the upcoming movie and his main job as a singer.

But when asked:

“Are you going to continue to be an idol?”

Jinyoung didn’t hesitate and answered:

“Music is my own way of communicating. I’m still thirsty, so I don’t want to give up at all, and I want to do it (being an idol) as long as I can. There is still a desire in me to do music. I am working on the album because I’m greedy. All of my songs were set, so we just need to set a date.”

In context, Jinyoung initially announced that he will be releasing his solo album in January 2023, to commemorate his 10th debut anniversary.

Even when asked what his real character is, Jinyoung expressed his love for GOT7, more than he loves acting. He then hinted at their return to the music scene as well.

“My main character is still a singer. I did it for a long time. I can be the second character as well as the main character. I like acting, but at the same time, a singer.

I’m still very close to GOT7 members and keep in touch with them often. We have made a promise, so we are preparing to release a song. GOT7 should continue to do so. We’re preparing hard because our beginning is GOT7 and our fans love us.”
