Aside from his idol image, Lay is known as the Mr. Gentleman of EXO. In fact, the singer charmed his fans in a recent interview where he revealed his ideal type and preference in dating.
When asked whether he would like a girl with long or short hair, Lay provided a sweet answer that would genuinely melt his fans' hearts. "I don't care what kind of hair she has. I like it if the girl likes herself," he said as per Koreaboo.
After hearing his response, Lay's fans thought he has all the qualities of a boyfriend material, while others commended the idol for being romantic and gentleman. Aside from his soft side, the singer has been vocal about being conservative and traditional.
In a previous interview, Lay frankly said that he would rather star in war series instead of being casted for romance dramas. "For some reason, I'm not completely comfortable with it. It's not like one has to show intimate scenes to portray love," he admitted as cited by Soompi.
The idol has also expressed his opposition to kiss scenes, stating that he does not understand the concept of having them in dramas and films. Lay added that this kind of intimacy should only be done by couples in relationship.
The EXO member revealed he has never done real kiss scenes for his dramas, adding that he has no plans of doing them in his future projects. The 25-year-old idol has been casted for an upcoming drama, titled "Operational Love."
The upcoming Chinese series is a remake of a Japanese romcom of the same title. Lay will take the main role as Yan Xiaolai, who will travel back in time to change his destiny. "Operational Love" marks his first lead role in a melodrama.
Watch out for the release of the upcoming Chinese series this 2017!
