About the author



  • Qie

    He’s more innocent that I thought. I was surprised when he confessed he actually never (really) dated.
    He’s one of my biases. <3

  • Yuuta Tako Jinguji

    Minhyun, Ren and JR is the lead actor for a Japanese Movie “their distance” while the other two (Baekho and Aron) is cameo in the movie. (that i recomend to watch)

  • Bunny

    He’s an angel, everything about him is perfect <3 <3
    Even though rest of the members dislike Jaewhan (not in serious ways),
    I really like him when he cares for Jaewhan especially in the show Wanna Go
    Love you Oppa Minhyun <3 <3

    Only Produce 101 watcher can understand…

  • B J Rosen

    He can’t promote with Ne’Est for the year that he’s in Wanna One, per contract. However, Nu’Est changed their name for the year to Nu’Est W. W is for ‘waiting’, meaning that they are waiting for Minhyun to return. As soon as Wanna One’s year long contract is over, Minhyun will return to all of us Lo/e’s who are waiting for him to come home. 🙂
