Artists he likes
Because of his long face, he is often referred to as a “cucumber” and sometimes as a “carrot”.
There was a rumor that when he found out he was dropped out of Block B’s line up that he fasted for 10 days. But he said it wasn’t true.
He rapped under the name Holke prior to his debut.
He thinks Dal Shabet’s Jiyul is cute.
He says to not be skilled at house chores (such as washing dishes).
He and Zico have known each other since elementary school.
He likes to introduce himself as Block B’s “visual”.
He, Zico, U-Kwon, Hanhae, and Mino were the original people in Block B’s lineup.
He studied abroad in New Zealand.
He is the only member who speaks fluent English (but his pronunciation is so so, honestly).
In “Freeze!“‘s music video, he thought he didn’t really look good doing anything, so he made up a pose to make himself look better. That pose was always doing something with his right hand.
He studied in USA for 1 year, and New Zealand for 2 years.
He wrote the raps in Do You Wanna B?
