Sechskies' Lee Jae Jin explained why he keeps his cell phone number private even to his members.  

On the May 10 airing of 'Kim Shin Young's Hope Song at Noon', DJ Kim Shin Young Lee Jae Jin if he really does not give out his cell phone number to his members because he's afraid they'll ask him for favors.

Lee Jae Jin responded, "Our label CEO and the manager are the only ones who know my number." He explained, "I want my privacy protected."


Kim Shin Young asked if this bothers the members at all, and the members of Sechskies answered, "We're not curious about Lee Jae Jin's phone number. We have a group Kakaotalk so we just contact one another with that."

    not really. jaejin has always been a bit different. He probably has a mild case of some letter combination (like add or whatever). So i dont think it shows anything about them being distant

    That's his nice way of saying he doesn't want his number to be leaked by hacking or by accident. Too many idols have their number end up in public and they have to change it which is a huge hassle. They have a group chat and have each other on social media if they want to contact each other. I have friends who change numbers frequently (they are bad with finances) because they do the pay as you go services and I mostly talk with them through sns since keeping track of their numbers is a pain.

    He already told this while they were in Radio Star. He afraid that people will ask him regarding tickets, yg artists etc since he associated with YG. That's why he don't give numbers to his members

    i think at least he is HONEST about wanting to keep his work life and private life apart. i see some idols saying things like we are like family and we are brothers, but i dun think every idol group is really like that, I remember someone said before, putting a group of strangers together and forcing them to live together and work together, and expecting them to be like a family, its not something that everyone can get used to, but in front of camera, they have to act like they are very close and friendly, i think that is why sometimes we see disputes and quarrels in groups behind the scenes which cause member to leave.

    What you're saying applies to sechskies 20 years ago when their company put them together. But their reunion and them working and performing together again was their own choice and decision that no one forced them to make. I don't think him not giving the members his number means he's not close to them. But yes this can be applied to other groups.

    I watched the Radio Star episode, he not only didnt give them his number, he also dun join them for drinks or after performance events, and leave immediately after that, i am not saying thats bad, as he has his own life now. but yeah i think he isnt as close to them as compared to current generation idol groups say they are.

    Yeah some groups nowadays tend to exaggerate it just for fans, because fans like seeing their idols very close. For Jaejin, he's being like that because it's his personality, he doesn't seem to be the sociable person. Not everyone likes to make very close relationships even within the family including me, if you ask me who's your best friend i can't really answer that lol i always tend to draw lines for some reasons.
