Mnet's 'Superstar K2' will soon come to an end on October 22nd, where the two final contestants, Heo Gak (25) and John Park (22), will compete head-to-head to find Korea's next 'Superstar K' winner. The two recently participated in an interview where they expressed their final thoughts and emotions on their long journey as a Superstar K contestant. Check out the interviews below. Heo Gak - Something about yourself that you feel has changed since your participation in the show? My very difficult diet. I feel human now. I think I've developed a lot, appearance-wise. - Since you and your brother are identical twins, I think your brother could sing well too. Any thoughts on duets? My brother sings well too. There was even a time when we sang in a performance together. If there is ever the opportunity, I would like for us to do activities together. - Apart from the jury panel of Lee Seung Chul, Yoon Jong Shin and Uhm Jung Hwa, are there any sunbae singers you would like to meet or follow as your mentor? Lee Sooni sunbae-nim. I've always listened to music by InSooni and Lee Seung Chul. I would really like advice and suggestions for my music and singing. I like Lee Sooni sunbae-nim's 'A Goose's Dream', and Lee Seung Chul sunbae-nim's 'Never-ending Story'. I actively search for and listen to their new songs, such as 'There's No Other Person'. - A girl group/member you would like to meet? miss A's Suzy. - Any future plans with your girlfriend? We haven't made any concrete decisions yet. - If you really make it as a big star, what is one thing you would like to do? Work hard and enjoy singing whenever possible, even when I become a star. - If you could change your looks? If you could do plastic surgery, what would you fix? My whole face!!! Like a completely different person, hahaha. - There were rumors that John Park and Jang Jae In were unofficially made winners. How did you feel when you heard this? Did you ever think, ever since being picked in the top 11, how far you would actually reach? First off, this is the first time I've heard of it, because we're not allowed to use the internet. And plus, I don't worry about things like that. John Park, Jang Jae In, all of them have good skills. And since all of them had good skills…I thought I would only reach the top 6-7. - As the winner of a mission, you used your wish for John Park's mother to make a visit. If you had the opportunity again, what would wish for? To go home, even if it's just for a day, haha. - What is one point about your rival that you are envious of? John Park's soft smile and his flawless English pronunciation. - If you win, how will you use your prize money? I want to make a house where me and my family can live happily. If I win, I will definitely give a shout out to my dad, brother, and girlfriend. John Park - Something about yourself that you feel has changed since your participation in the show? My singing, my voice. I have a lot more confidence on stage now. I also work harder to show a newer side of me. - When Heo Gak won a mission, he used his wish to allow your mother to visit you. What would you do for Heo Gak, if you won it? I would help him be able to meet his brother and mother too. - Apart from the jury panel Lee Seung Chul, Yoon Jong Shin and Uhm Jung Hwa, are there any sunbae singers you would like to meet or follow as your mentor? Park Jin Young sunbae-nim. I've always had a lot of respect for him. I feel that he is someone I can learn a lot from, as he has succeeded as both a singer and producer. I also like Lee Sooni sunbae-nim. If I had the chance, I would like to meet them. - A girl group/member you would like to meet? I don't know a lot about Korean girl groups yet, but I did watch a music video by the Wonder Girls one time in America, so I'd like to meet them. - Not long ago, you talked with one of the top 11 contestants, Kim Eun Bi, and she hinted her feelings. What are your honest thoughts about Kim Eun Bi? I grew up without any siblings. When I see Eun Bi, I think how good it would be to have a cute younger sister like her. - If you could perform a duet with a female singer, who would you choose? I don't really have a lot of knowledge in Korean singers yet, so it's hard for me to choose amongst the female singers. But if I could choose anyone to duet with, I'd pick top 11 contestants Kim Jisoo and Heo Gak. - What is something you really want to do if you become a star? I want to do a lot of good deed. When I went on American Idol, I received a lot of support from other Koreans and it gave me strength. I want to become the strength for anyone out there. - The broadcast of the show sketched an image of you as a really wonderful person. Are there difference between that image and your real self? If so, what is the most different point? There are big differences. I'm usually introverted, and there are times when I'm really dumb. While Heo Gak hyung tells me I'm funny, other people think I'm really stupid. I think I show up way cooler than I am on broadcast. - What is one point about your rival that you are envious of? Gak hyung's musical range. I'm also envious of his ability to express himself in variety show skills. - If you win, how will you use your prize money? I want to spend a good time with my parents in Korea. Source + Photos: Sports Seoul
