  • Vaya

    He’s such a cutie and that low voice!!! *_*
    When I watched No Mercy survival show at first I was also disappointed when he was announced as a new trainee because I felt bad for the rest of the contestants who already done 4 Missions. But when I saw him for the 1st time on stage, when I heard his rap and saw his charisma, I totally changed my mind. <3

    In Deokspatch, they measured Kihyun and IM’s height to assure who is the shortest in the group. They couldn’t measure who is taller so they tried to measure the length of their legs. Kihyun’s legs were longer so, technically, IM is the shortest one in the group

    He’s closest to Jooheon because when he was new in ‘No Mercy’ everyone really disliked him and Jooheon was the only one who shared the most words with him.

    I cried when I watched how the contestants of ‘No Mercy’ avoided him. No wonder why he said he was best at being alonelonely on ‘Nimdle’.
