    The Viki version I saw must have been CC’ed poorly. I only remember about his sleeping habits (snoring & teeth grinding) but not the narcolepsy. Or I may have just missed it entirely.

  • Silver tail

    Woojin is the main dancer, and Daniel dreamed of being a World Class B-Boy.. Not opening a Sushi restaurant in Hong Kong….

  • may poe

    too bad i am only 12:( he said he likes women older than him:( i really like him!:)

  • Mai Chu Ngoc

    Daniel never studied in Canada, he only went there for a vacation. Please change the information, thank you!

  • Reality

    Does anyone happen to know the languages he speaks?

  • keke

    i know he speaks Korean and English but i believe he can speak some Chinese and Japanese but i don’t know if he is fluent or not i’m not sure

  • zetnnik

    180 cm = 5’11”???? Is it a special kind of math? Correct height is 5’9”.

  • weyoung

    actually the heights are correctly converted! what you said it’s feet only (used for length measurement) not feet and inches! there are 2 types of measurement: length measurement and height measurement
    for ex:
    180 cm is 5’9 – feet only (the measurement uses for the length)
    180 cm is 5’11″ – feet and inches (the measurement used for height)

    so please don’t use a Google converter because it doesn’t know you want a height and it will give you the length conversion

    ask any native that use the feet and inches measurements. the height should be in feet and inches!

  • Jungkookie-ah♡🌼

    if your age is on the clock you’re too young for the… lol jk jk to be real tho I feel like he would 100% date someone younger despite saying he prefers older women

  • hello

    Daniel his role model is Kim Sejeong

  • Jade Malo

    Why does it say that he’s a Sub-Rapper here, but a Lead Rapper on the Wanna One profile?

  • RIGHT😋😋😋😋😋

  • Lyxx

  • nilfa sales

    like ong seungwoo, daniel said his role model is EXO’s kai (happy together)

  • daniel’s whore

    he has a new cat called Zhang 🙂 so there are 4 now – Rooney , Peter, Ori, Zhang-ah

  • daniel’s whore

    i think he can as much as he wont drown 😂 relatable

  • daniel’s whore

    i feel like he’ll date someone either younger or same age , it’s just that most young boys say that they prefer older women because it reminds them of their mom who takes care of them. Ofc there are some that end up dating older women 😁

  • Luna Rose Quinn JK’s 여동생 💜 #방탄

    Okie in the wise words of J-Lo I feel like many older women, if they were to ever be in a relationship with Daniel, I’m sure they’d be like, “I ain’t you Mama no!~” But since I’m a year younger than him I am unable to sing that towards him, LMAO.

  • Zana Fantasize

    Based on Okay wanna one ep 32 (Q&A Time Part 1) he always wiping his shoe sole few time before perform outside

    His weight went up btw from 67kg to 68kg (according to his vlive)

  • dancing on my own

    I see the mods added new things but didn’t fix the Canada thing.
    Please remove that already, he never studied in Canada.
    He only went on vacations to visit his maternal aunt who lives there.

    Also, Daniel is a lead rapper, not a sub rapper. You have it right in the Wanna One members profile.


    it was just for vacations!!!
    Thank You.

  • 리디아

    how about this more recent picture for his profile ^_^ ❤️

  • JD

    The Instagram should be changed. After all the issues LM has been giving him he opened his own Instagram and it would be good if we could unfollow the one from LM so they can’t use his name anymore.
    His own Instagram is daniel.k.here
    Please, everyone go follow that one!
