We all know that Han Geng has been interviewed many times since he left his previous company and most of the questions are repeated at each interview..
Let’s start with InStyle Magazine..September Issue…from the start he already requested the interviewer this..not to talk about the lawsuit.
He frankly requested, “Please could we…first not talk about the termination of contract at the moment?”
Do female flight attendants request you for a picture with them on the plane?
I go to sleep as soon as I get on the plane because I normally lack sleep. I could only replenish sleep on the plane. Sometimes female flight attendants would ask for an autograph shortly before landing.
Do you worry about people taking pictures of you without you knowing it while you sleep?
I still look very good while sleeping. (Smile)
Describe your fashion style.
Free style, casual. I like putting on linen pants and flip flops the most, for work. If talking about formal attire, I like Dior suits very much. I also like looking at unique personal work by some designers. For example, there are many of these in Shinjuku, Tokyo. You can find many fashionable clothing and footwear there, but you will need to look carefully.
Could you share with us your first ear piercing experience?
While I was still in university, some of my good friends all went to get their ears pierced. I was then urged to get them pierced, too. Probably it is the same for many people. Ha ha.
What is your future career plan?
I actually do not have much planned. Working hard together for a common goal and being happy is just fine. I like to progress steadily, let nature take its course. In the future, I may focus on acting, do movies and TV dramas, but I won’t give up singing. I enjoy the feeling of singing and dancing on stage, it’s very fun.

Below is an excerpt from an interview taken from Sina Entertainment.Here we see that there is a feeling of camaraderie among his staff and himself..!!
“My current staff members are all my friends, I think it very good this way. It’s very humane.” In the interview Han Geng stated that it’s not that he did not have big companies approaching him hoping to sign him, “but I feel that the current state is very well.”
New Album’s Cover, a result of an argument.
Han Geng introduced to us that his current team is made up solely of his friends. His manager was an upperclassman from his university, whom he had know for 14 years; his stylist is also a very old friend; the boss of Le Hua Entertainment, who is in charge of his album is also a friend of his… Han Geng feels that in this working environment, everyone will be able to respect each other, and will be able to be more relaxed and more humane. For a lot of the details in work, Han Geng just let these friends take care of them completely and since everyone has known each other for years, there is a very high degree of unspoken agreement, so he “really trusts them”
In face of disagreement, Han laughed and stated, “Then we’ll “argue”! Like with my album cover, I was arguing with my staff, I wanted it to be half black, half white, but she said that pure white looked better. In the end I lost, she even comforted me and said, “I’ll listen to you next time”!
When talked about his “Geng Fans”
Han Geng expressed gratitude, “everyone is very mature”. In the Han Geng Baidu Bar, Geng Fans have rules stating that, “there is no discussion about private relationships, only care for Han Geng’s career.” Han Geng said, “Every time they welcome me at the airport, they would keep a very far distance from me, taking initiative in leaving me a path, and even yell, “Do not touch him! Do not take pictures! Turn off your flashlights!”” all of these make him feel very moved.
In those days of struggle in Korea, Han Geng’s parents felt his hard work and pain, and often told him, “If it’s too tiring out there, just come back.” Just recently, Han Geng held his first solo concert, both his parents showed up, in the end both of them cried, “they don’t hope that I earn a lot of money, they don’t hope that become a super star, they only want me to live my life happily, work happily and that’s enough.!
As a son, Han Geng is very filial
Knowing that his mother does not like boredom and likes to work in the kitchen; he gave the first 100,000 he earned to his mother so she could open a tiny dumpling restaurant in Beijing. Han Geng laughed and said, “I didn’t hope that my mom would earn a lot of money from this dumpling restaurant, I only wanted her to be happy and feel fulfilled in her life.” After that, when he heard that his mother was thinking of opening a beauty parlour, he once again gave his mother money in support. Han Geng told this reporter that although the parlour is not very big and only has four beds, when he’s tired, he would sometime visit his mother’s parlour and experience her massages and acupuncture, it makes him feel very happy.
In the beginning of the year, when rumours about his case was flying everywhere, some people on the internet claimed that Han Geng has a rich cousin who is willing to pay ten million to help him terminate his contract, causing much attention from the public. He said his real cousin is going to school in Hei Long Jiang, and is actually quite poor; he actually gives her some maintenance allowance every month, to support her education. In his memory, Han Geng was always very nice to his family, always financing this and helping that. Han Geng expressed, “Actually, my family is not as well off as people seem to think, so I help out whenever I can.”

This portion below is an excerpt from an interview conducted via long-distance telephone call from Singapore.
Were you unhappy working in Korea?
“No, it is just that SM Entertainment has its own system and planning. So if anyone in the group has some personal ideas, it would upset the plans.”
The experience in Korea is precious
Although he parted with the company on bad terms, still Han Geng emphasized that he treasures his experience in Korea and is still on good terms with S J: “I have lots of fantastic memories with them, for example, getting our first award. What I have learnt in the past would not be wasted, no matter good or bad, it is still an experience. We still call and send messages to each other.”
If you all meet each other on some events, would it be awkward? Han Geng laughed and said: “No, it wouldn’t. I have no conflicts with them; the problem lies with the boss. I am still on good terms with them.”

All those are excerpts from different interviews and I hope to show Han Geng in a different light..The mentioning of his former company and group cannot be avoided, because he was part of them before..and without the past,we won’t have the Han Geng today..! So I hope we are acceptable on this and not be negative in our thinking. We should be like Han Geng, broadminded and openly accept things that cannot be changed..Just like he said on a number of occasions, he cannot make people like him nor change their perspectives of him. What he can do is to be himself and show them through his works..!That’s the kind of attitude that Han Geng always carry on him..Many times interviews are so boring with the same questions being repeated over and over, that’s why I only took out the excerpts and compiled them here so that we can further “study” Han Geng and his thoughts..
Oh my Han Geng ! He is still and forever a narcissist…”I still look good even when I am sleeping”!
Watch what our Han Geng is doing..and what Gengrice said..”taste the food!” They were a bit apprehensive when watching him cook..hahaha..! Looked like they don’t trust his cooking..!!
doesn’t he look sexy ? It would have been better if he had donned on an apron..!!!
