Q1 : How do you let yourself become more well-rounded?
LAY : Before ensuring that I have already progressing steadily, I have to develop myself in other areas. For example, even though I debuted through dance, I am still working hard to improve myself through piano, guitar, composing, song-writing and singing etc.

Q2 : Do you think that it is an advantage or disadvantage to be so well-rounded?
LAY : I am an artiste. I have always believe in this phrase that "talents will not overwhelm one's body". In addition, I am a Libra, and I tend to chase after perfection and balance, so I would give myself a lot of pressure. To always be working hard, and to do everything well.

Q3 : From the 'lifespan' as an artiste, being well-rounded is considered an advantage, right?
LAY : Yes yes yes. It is like the style to mature slowly, so I can showcase more things in the future.

Q4 : Is your character like the type to mature slowly too?
LAY : Not a exceptionally good character. Usually I am very gentle, but there are times when I am irritated. Usually, I just explodes after it accumulates over a period of time, and this surprises people.

Q5 : If there are good opportunites for you to act, will you accept them joyfully accept them?
LAY : Of course, because good opportunities are a help for me to write songs, and I can also develop more skills through acting, and make more new friends. Also if there are also people who like music in the same acting cast, it would be even better !

Q6 : For example, letting you write the title track?
LAY : Eh... If they use my title track, then I wouldn't accept any performance fees for acting in it.

Q7 : What is your aim in terms of music?
LAY : In terms of music, our seniors have already set a very good example. I have never thought about bring Chinese music to whatever place, but I do have an advantage like this : I am not only one of China's group, but also a member of an Asia group groomed by a Korean company. Our promotional activites are all over the world, so I hope to make some harmony through such a linking bridge. I give myself 10 years, or maybe 5years; I hope to bring up the whole Chinese music. This is my biggest aim.

Q8 : Let's assume that you have returned to the Chinese enviroment. What happens if it turns out differently from what you have expected? How would you adjust?
LAY : I will be very willingly and happy to accept my failures. From the music point of view, there is no correct answer. There is such a saying that for your music, be it your best, your melody, or your lyrics, as long as two criterias catches everyone, then this song is basically complete. It is not possible that every single person will like your music. After lisening to the song, if they can be as sad together with you, and feel the song together, than it would be good.

Q9 : What songs do you listen to usually?
LAY : I like to listen to the songs I write very much. Do you want to listen to it? Recently I have been writing a rap and a demo. This definitely has some relations to Chinese pop music. (While listening to the song, LAY was explaining and dancing along...)

Q10 : So do you depend on watching television dramas to look for inspirations?
LAY : I really have no time to watch ! Isn't < You Who Came from the Stars> very popular? I always had no time to watch. I always thought it is about a girl who came from outer space, and then a series of incidents happen.

Q11 : How do you think you would be like in 5 or 10 years time?
LAY : Other than my career, I should be looking for a girlfriend? Or maybe get married? HAHAHAHA!

Q12 : What about your career?
LAY : Of course I wouldn't let go of my careet. My goal is pretty big, so there are many things I need to prepare, and I have always been accumulating, hoping to lead the Chinese music industry well.

Q13 : How did you develop such a thoughtful and polite personality?
LAY : I was brought up by my grandfather and grandmother from young; they are both teachers, so they have a pretty great influence in terms of my conduct, and I tend to respect the elders. When I first came to the company, there were many misunderstands which occured due to differences in codes of conducts and culture, and it was a headache. Koreans emphasise on ranking; when faced with a higher authority, one has to bow and greet the other, while you can use informal language with those who are lower in ranking to you. But through my upbringing since young, I feel that everyone who has helped me, those who have put in effort silently behind the scenes, all of them are my benefactors and so they are all higher in ranking that I am.
It is even more so for the fans. We don't have such a direct relationship with them, and I have never said words such as "you guys are my girlfriends". Everyone knows it is a special kind of relationship. All we do is probably put on some makeup, wait in airconditioned rooms, then go onto stage to perform and sweat alot. But they probably start from yesterday, the day before, or even a month before, to buy tickets and sometimes they will go to see you at the airport. So I feel that the love from fans are very respectable and cute. If my bows can represent thankfulness and respect, then I hope that you guys don't think that I am bowing too much. For the things you guys have done, me bowing a hundred or a thousand times is considered little already.

Q14 : Can you tell us about your growing up experiences?
LAY : From young, my mum liked to show my clips of Michael Jackson. At that time, moonwalk was really popular. I wanted to learn so badly but I just couldn't learn it. In high school, I developed an interst in popping. And in the end, I even became the lead dancer of our group. I feel that that through this whole pathway, the most important is still to work hard and practice. I also told my friends that no matter who it is, or what kind of company they enter, they can do well in that field. When I was still a trainess, I would practice more than 10hours a day, and there were times when I practiced for an entire day and no go home to sleep. My motivation came from those numerous teachers who looked down on me because of my bad results, so I wanted to produce some results. The belittleness by other people will also motivate oneself to work hard.

Q15 : What is the life motto which you like the most?
LAY : Work hard, work hard and still working hard.

Q16 : Please list out 3 of your top qualities.
LAY : Something which I listed out recently - being grateful. This is my heartfelt words. About other qualities, thinking about it, I am considered pretty talented i guess hahaha. Also hardworking !

Q17 : Lastly, please say a few words on celebrating their one year anniversary.
LAY : Firslt, to be able to represent EXO and participate in the cover shoot for , and to be able to interact closely with our Hongkong friends, I feel very honours and exceptionally happy. During the Hongkong concert, there is something which I wanted to say especially : (in cantonese) Thank you everyone for coming to watch my concert ! Thank you everyone ! Also hope that EXO can have better developments, and showcase better appearances to everyone. Hope that everyone can love a lot, and love EXO a lot !
