Kangin shared that he showed his everyday self through his acting, revealing his transparency.
After taking his first lead in a movie through Cat Funeral, Super Junior member Kangin told Newsen in an interview, “I completely understood Dong Hoon′s situation. Wasn′t it so realistic? I thought that many people, especially in their mid-20s. would relate.”
In the film, Kangin acts as Dong Hoon, a musician dating a talented webtoon designer girlfriend. He begins to hide himself more and more as he struggles through an inferiority complex.
“I quit music and got hired at a company.”
This line from the movie was enough to make the audience members pity Dong Hoon, relating to the realistic scenario.
“When you′ve graduated college but your future path is not clear, you end up in low-spirits without even realizing it. I think that even love is something that can′t be maintained with just faith and affection,” said Kangin. “In the movie, I focused a little more on those situations. The relationship where some inevitable trouble happens was something that I′ve experienced in real life, so it felt a bit more bitter.”
“If I had lived a cloudy life like Dong Hoon, I don′t think I would have pulled through. If I didn′t have money at hand, I wouldn′t leave my house at all. If I lost my wallet or didn′t have money that I could spend right away, I wouldn′t make any appointments. The reason is clear. I don′t want to tell people sob stories and I don′t want my pride to be crushed when it has already become nothing. That′s why I think I was able to understand Dong Hoon a little more.”
Cat Funeral is based on the popular webtoon of the same name. The film is about a broken couple that meet again for a special occasion.

While Siwon and Donghae give their band mates major props for the loads of work put in for the three videos off their chart-topping Mamacita LP — including the dramatic and hilarious visual to the title track — the pair specifically tip their hats to Eunhyuk and Shindong. “Since they put in so much effort, the rest of us were comfortable,” Donghae says of the pair who added the most creative input. “It made it a lot of easier for the rest of members.”
But how does the band connect with “This Is Love” on a personal level? Siwon says Donghae, who he calls “a romanticist,” connects best to the song while Donghae adds that Siwon, who is “more charismatic and masculine when it comes to being in love,” is best fit to represent the swoony track.
