[Interview] Lee Min Woo Shares His Plans to Beat YG and JYP Someday
Lee Min Woo shared his big dreams to produce singers who will beat out YG and JYP′s talent.
Skilled in writing, composing and producing music, Lee Min Woo has previously worked on not only Shinhwa and his solo songs but also those of other singers, including Jewelry, Wonder Girls, Teen Top and more.
Despite this resume, however, the singer has yet to produce a new group, unlike Andy and Eric, who have debuted Teen Top and Stellar, respectively.
In an interview with Newsen, the Shinhwa member spoke up on his future plans as a producer.
“I’ve heard from many people that I’m the Shinhwa member who’s most likely to do it and do it first,” opened up Lee Min Woo. “I’ve been asked many questions about it as well.”
“My goal is to beat YG and JYP,” said the singer half-jokingly. “But I’m still far away from reaching that goal. Of course I have the dream to do it, but now is not the right timing.”
He added, “When I want to put things down, when I need a turning point and have more time to spare, that’s when I will start the project. I don’t like rushing into things, so I will wait for the right timing, and beat YG and JYP when the time comes.”
When asked why he left out SM, he said with a smile, “Because there’s Lee Soo Man… It’s the place that produced me so I leave it on the side…” then added, “I’m also close to YG and JYP.”
Meanwhile, Lee Min Woo made a recent comeback as M by releasing the solo album M+TEN.
