It was a press conference filled with laughter as Korean boyband U-Kiss show the humorous side of them.
While Korean celebrities were previously perceived as being shy and reserved in interviews, Korean boy band U-Kiss shattered the stereotype as they entertained the press during the press conference.
The members' proficiency in different languages was a big factor, as it broke down the language barrier and allowed them to interact freely among themselves and with the media.
Alexander L. Eusebio says, in fluent English, that even when they quarreled, it was in different languages too.Alexander then re-enacted the argument in different languages to comic effect, causing everyone to roar with laughter.
Alexander added that despite that, the group members do not fight or quarrel frequently because everyone is calm and would communicate with each other.
"So we're like the United nations; making a big round and talk," jokes Alexander, leading to another round of laughter.
With other members coming from radically different backgrounds - Eli Kim and Kevin Woo grew up in the States, Alexander's mother was a Korean while his father was a Chinese-Portuguese - the Korean members would help the other members familiarize themselves with the Korean culture.
Alexander explains that the other members helped him learn how to communicate with seniors properly as the Korean showbiz is very particular about seniority.
When asked to expose each other's funny quirks, the boys did not hold back in dishing the dirt.Kevin, who was described as a 'pretty girl' by group members, said that Kim Ki Bum likes to sleep on the car and playfully asks what he does at night.
Alexander then went on to dish the dirt on Shin Soo Hyun's sleeping posture while demonstrating the way Soo Hyun snores and jerks his body when he sleeps.
"It's really annoying sleeping with him; he talks sometimes when he sleeps."
When it came to Lee Ki Seop, he brushed off the question and indicated that he has nothing quirky to show, only to have Soo Hyun exposing his 'special talent': stuffing coins up his nose.
The clearly-embarrassed Ki Seop protested, but gave in when a reporter volunteers a coin. Ki Seop gamely demonstrates by inserting the coin into his nostrils to the amusement of everyone present.
Soo Hyun takes a dig at Ki Seop afterwards, saying that "that's the funniest he's been today".
When a question of whether they would prefer a beautiful lady who underwent plastic surgery or someone is all natural but not beautiful was posed to U-Kiss, members expressed differing views.
Soo Hyun and Kevin prefer the all-natural choice, saying that looks does not matter as long as they care for each other. Dong Ho and Alexander chose the same option but Alexander has a hilarious reason for the choice.
"I don't want a baby who looks so different from the mom; I think for the future of my children."
On the other hand, Eli, Ki Bum and Ki Seop honestly replies that plastic surgery is not such a bad thing to do since it is a way of enhance oneself.
In reaction to Alexander's 'no-resemblance' comment, Ki Bum deftly defends their choice.
"If my children don't look like their mother, they can go ahead with plastic surgery too!"
