  • jj

    I think adding on the reason why would be better, instead of it being that she doesn’t want him to date her its more of Suhyun thinking it would be a waste for Kyulkyung

  • Jaehyung

    There’s a wrong information about their height – Suhyun is 164cm tall and there’s no information going around in the internet about Chanhyuk, but he’s anyways taller than Suhyun. This is what Suhyun said while they were on V-live.

  • Sesyl

    Suhyun is currently a beauty youtuber, she is know as Mochipeach, she has more than 900k subscription on her channel. She uploaded her first video a little before Chanyuk enlisted last year, on June 2nd 2017 (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOiM8FuCUFJkuUjCmB14rgg)
    I don’t know if she will keep running her channel while coming back as singer when Chanyuk will be discarded or if she will drop one of the two.
    On the 15th episode of Lan Cable Life, she mentioned various things:
    – her brother was against her turning into a youtuber, while YG gave her a chance on that.
    – her beauty youtuber name his inspired by nicknames that her fans gave her
    – she started being interested in make up when she started performing and started receiving make up from pros
    – she said that it’s funny to fix her hair (like curling them) although she is not very good, but she is improving
    – she is very spontaneus with live on IG and use it to collect ideas from her followers for future videos
    – since she has lots of young follower, she is often asked about make up tutorial to look sick (lol) or for entrance ceremony at the beginning of the year (she was even asked by a follower about a make for elementary school entrance ceremony)
    – she does her make up for the videos while sitting on the floor, it’s more comfortable to her
    – due to the young age of her viewrs, she tend to use inexpensive products. she also uses cheaper art brushes instead of the expensive make up brushes (she also said that it’s easier to use art brushes)

    Soohyun can speak English. She was complimented by NCT’s Johnny but she said that only her pronunciation is good. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5d2d448c51a80c345adc0dcc51f2a460f906c0ec9f4bd1ad0396c9c0c1326702.jpg
