Fans of Korean rocker Jung Jun Young probably already know a lot about him, but during his recent appearance on KBS2TV's "Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook," the singer opened up about why he chose to become a rock star in the first place.

Yoo Hee Yeol interviewed the witty star who spoke honestly about his life and career.  Jung Jun Young explained, "It happened when I was 18. I watched Nirvana doing a live show, and Kurt Cobain said a swear word in the middle of the performance. That looked so cool."

Jung Jun Young continued by saying, "I thought that I should become a rocker as soon as I heard him speak the swear word. I kept telling everyone that I would become a top rocker, and say swear words to everyone, standing on a huge stage."

He ended saying, "Young people just tend to imitate everything that they think looks cool, and that is how it all began. But, now I am facing the reality, and I would never speak a swear word to my audiences. I just can't."
