    In SEVENTEEN PROJEST 1st episode he admitted that when him and the other members need to eat they order Chinese food, but then he has to order a lot of different food for 13 members and often gets confused.

    Sarangheyo hoshi oppa

  • Mark Lee’s other half

    I bet Hoshi Oppa is devastated right now, seeing that he is a Big SHINEE fan. And losing one of a member of his favourite group, is so terribly sad

  • Ekie

    I was thinking that too. :'(

  • hyojin

    my twins ( 15 june’s bby ) 😉

  • MarkLeeIsProbablyMySoulmate

    His shoe size is most likely 260 (Weekly Idol Ep 342)

  • mynameissoonyoungcallmesoon

    my first bias was Woozi but Hosh took over my heart, even my Japanese UB lost to him. He is perfect all around and to top that, he looks like my first boy crush in primary school

  • I love this boy. I love his personality, his confidence, and his charm. And he ships with everyone in SVT. I don’t think there is someone in his group that is awkward with him or him to anyone. He’s just that sociable and very receiving.

    And his talent and hardwork are really admirable. He’s often noisy and crazy but when it’s time to come up with something, expect him to accomplish it with flying colors. Sadly sometimes his hardwork is overshadowed with that of Coup’s and Woozi’s leadership. and when he cries, sometimes, members don’t take it seriously. Maybe because he’s the happiest-go-lucky member of SVT and so they always see him as the one who comforts rather than the one who needs comforting. But I like SVT so… 🙂

  • Lee Changlix

    Im proud. I made the votes for faverites 1010. Hoshi is slowly climbing up onto my bias list

  • Hoshi was supposed to be a part of the vocal unit, I believe

  • Yuleylll

    The fact about him being very good in Japanese is not very accurate…. I don’t think he speaks basic Chinese as well. >< I'm a big Hoshi fan so I hope that new fans don't get the wrong information about him.

  • Nano

    He does speak very good Japanese though
