VIXX's Ravi sat down for an interview with 'Grazia'.
The first topic of discussion was his first mini album 'R.EAL1ZE', which features many hot artists including CNBLUE's Yonghwa, San E, Microdot, and fellow VIXX member Ken. When asked to explain how they came to take part in his album, Ravi revealed, "I didn't even have the contact info to most of them. I contacted them through people, made calls, and explained about my album." As for the most memorable artist who featured in his album, Ravi chose Microdot, and said, "I got Microdot's contact info from his brother Sanchez. Microdot said it amazed him because it's not easy to ask someone to work with you when you don't know that person at all."
Next, Ravi shared about his shy nature, and said, "It takes me about 2 years to get close to someone. Even my manager who worked with me for many years recently said that he's now able to talk to me comfortably." Some of the idol friends that Ravi broke the shy barrier and became close to are SHINee's Taemin, EXO's Kai, and HOTSHOT's Timoteo and Sungwoon.
