  • YANG FOX

    That older person he wants to date is the person he is closest to in group: JEON WONWOO everyone! Mingyu and Wonwoo makes up Meanie, the most perfect ship there exist.

  • YANG FOX

    Wonwoo is also older than him, which gives us the undeniable proof that he was referring Wonwoo when he mentioned who he wants to date with.
