    About the other members saying he acted most like MAKNAE, that is a bit wrong. They said Kihyun acted most like a BABY, not by being hyper and immature, but by falling down like a baby would and making those noises. Please change it because a BABY and a MAKNAE are not the same. Thank you! Also could you please add that he failed several auditions before getting accepted into Starship 🙂
