Young actor Kim Min Jae posed for 'Marie Claire' magazine, chatting up with the interviewer about what he's been up to lately, his work, and more. 

Kim Min Jae was asked, "Was it your decision to transition from an idol trainee to an actor?" He answered, "Yes, it was my decision. The trainee life can be suffocating, but I came upon a chance to receive acting lessons. It consisted of getting angry, crying, and cursing, and it was so fun. In reality, there's no way that situations in historical dramas can happen. But when I go to a filming set, it becomes reality. That's why I am able to have so many entertaining experiences. I thought, 'This is it'. My motivation for doing something is always whether it's fun or not. I was a trainee for 4 years, but I do not think those 4 years were wasted at all, and it was a time for me to find something else fun for me to do." 

Does Kim Min Jae still take vocal lessons? "No. Because I got them when I was a trainee, I can't stand them now. I don't receive acting lessons either. It could be the wrong decision, but it opens the way for Kim Min Jae to choose and decide what to do. It's more fun to walk a dirt-road as Kim Min Jae than getting on some elite course. I couldn't find an answer in singing, dancing, or rapping so I thought I'd just chase after what's fun for me, and so that's why I'm currently not doing those things now," he said honestly.

    If he ever, at one point, enjoyed singing, dancing, or rapping at all, that trainee life probably killed it for him.
