When asked about his sources of inspiration and creative process, he said, “I have the habit of jotting down lyrics, even during flights”.

“Whenever a feeling strikes me, I’ll document it—be it joy, sorrow, or anything in between,” he added. And these emotions accumulate over days eventually finding their way into his creative process.

On acting

On top of his well-established music career, Cha is also recognised as a versatile actor through various series.

Cha previously took on light-hearted roles in A Good Day to Be a Dog (2023) and showed off a darker facade in the ongoing Wonderful World (2024).

Working on the former, Cha recalled a memorable moment when he had to kiss a dog. “I had to apply churu (animal treat) on my lips for the dogs to come to me,” he said with a beaming grin.

Having done a myriad of genres, Cha told the local press that he’s open to exploring diverse roles, rather than limiting himself to a specific genre per se.

On his Singapore visit

When managing his time while touring, Cha said: “I’m just like everyone else. I enjoy indulging in delicious food, visiting cafes for desserts, and, taking naps.”
