Taking time to greet the fans and media, Lee Dong Wook posed in different directions to enable fans and media alike clear shots of him. The host then invited him to be seated and kickstarted the press conference with a series of Q&A, allowing fans a quick glimpse into his thoughts.
When questioned on where has he been to/ liked to go to in Singapore, Lee Dong Wook shared that although this was his 2nd visit in 6 years, he has not been to any attractions in Singapore so far due to the planned hectic schedule. For both times so far, he had arrived the night before and headed straight to the hotel to sleep and to the event venue immediately the next day. He also took the opportunity to send his apologies for not being able to spend more time with his fans who had turned up at the airport the night before.
In line with the ‘Goblin’s’ fantasy theme, Lee Dong Wook shared that he would want to have teleportation powers if he could choose to have a supernatural power.

Definitely a useful power to have especially with his explosive popularity around the globe!
With his involvement in various drama to date, Lee Dong Wook was asked which character did he resemble the most amongst all his characters so far. He shared that it was difficult to choose 1 particular character as he has similar traits to all the characters that he has acted so far.
When questioned on what role he would like to try next, Lee Dong Wook shared that he is keen to try anything that he has not tried before.
