Q: Kenapa panggilanmu adalah baozi?
A: Panggilan ini dari Luhan. Karena pertama kali aku debut, aku masih lebih gendut daripada sekarang. Wajahku yang putih dan bulat membuatku mirip baozi. Jadi dia memanggilku baozi. Kemudian fans juga mulai memanggilku seperti itu, dan sekarang sudah menyebar

A: Aku belum pernah makan itu. Sayang sekali, Aku sangat ingin mencobanya.

A: ketika aku kecil, ada klub bela diri yang ada di luar sekolah yang sedang mencari anggota baru. Di sponsor mereka mengatakan, ‘Bergabunglah dan dapatkan mainan!’ aku sangat menginginkan mainan itu, lalu aku pulang dan meminta orangtuaku untuk memperbolehkanku ikut. Orangtuaku berpikir dengan belajar bela diri akan membantuku lebih kuat dan menumbuhkan tubuh, jadi mereka setuju. Kemudian aku mulai mempelajari itu.

Q: Haha. Apa mainan yang kau dapat?
A: Sebuah mainan berbentuk karakter komik yang bisa menembakkan peluru dari dada.

Q: Kudengar kau suka Jay Chou dan JJ Lin? Apa yang kau suka dari mereka?
A: Jay Chou adalah artis china yang paling familiar denganku. Tidak hanya berbakat dalam menyanyi dan menulis lagu, tapi juga menjadi sutradara, bisa dibilang dia multi talenta. Aku tahu JJ Lin karena member menyuruhku mendengarkan lagunya, aku sangat suka suaranya. Kebanyakan lagunya adalah buatan sendiri, dan semua lagunya fantastis!

A baozi with peach blossom eyes (t/n:Describing eyes that are dewy, long and curved at the outer corner)

He really looks very young, looks just like a middle school student. The corners of his eyes curve upwards, it’s just the peach blossom eyes talked about in the ancient times. During the interview, he would stare at you very seriously, a slight smile in his expression. His good boy look makes you believe that this ‘middle school student’ would not do anything naughty or cause trouble after school is let out.

Q: Your nickname is Baozi, why?
A: The nickname Baozi was made by Luhan. Because when I first debuted I was a little fatter than now. My white and fat look, looked a lot like a Baozi. So he called me Baozi. Later the fans started calling me that too. Then it started spreading.

A: When I was young, there was a martial arts club outside my school recruiting students. The advertisement they had was: Join the club and get a toy! I really wanted that toy, so I went hope and begged my parents to let me learn martial arts. My parents felt that learning martial arts could help strengthen and build the body, so they agreed. Then, I started learning.

Q: Haha, what toy was that?
A: It was a character from a comic, he could should bullets from his chest.

Q: Heard that you like Jay Chou and JJ Lin, what do you like about them?
A: Jay Chou is the Chinese celebrity that I am most familiar with. Not only is he a talented singer song-writer, he also directs movies, you can say he is multi-talented. I only knew of JJ Lin after the members put on a song for me to hear, I really like his colour of his voice. Most of his songs are also written by himself, those songs are all fantastic.
