    JR is my bias! <3

    I think Rens role model is leaning more towards Lady Gaga. I mean, his instagram name is Bornthisren, he has done 5 performances dedicated to her songs and he posts picture cosplaying as her. Just saying.

  • Sunggyu_side

    Why didnt Aron join the program? Prlly you know the reason..

  • ParkXiyeonisLIFE

    Baekho, Ren, JR and Minhyun

  • MULTY(kpop)FANDOM

    to be honest i dont and i would also like to know. he isnt active in ig since it was annoced nuest would be part of this show

  • norbalqis

    Why aron doesn’t join p101?

  • Sesyl

    Maybe it’s a spolier to anyone who didn’t see episode 5 yet, but these are Nu’est’s ranks after first ranking:

    Kim Jonghyun (JR); 8th.
    Hwang Minhyun: 11th
    Choi Minki (Ren): 19th
    Kang Dongho (Baekho): 20th

  • woozisshi

    Cuz he is 93liner, as I know, only 95liner joined

  • Phương Thảo Lê

    No, at the 1st class evaluation, Minhyun is the one in class C, the others are in class D
    And after reevaluating, Jonghyun is in class B, Minhyun and Dongho are in class D, and Minki is in F

  • Riye

    JR’s IG acct: @pockyjr
    Aron’s IG acct: @nuestaron

  • Well they are doing really well in Produce 101 and are gaining a lot of fans and public recognition from it. I am sure they don’t regret joining pd101 even a bit.

  • Gied

    Yet this is the best experiment pledis sent them. Seriously instead of Nu’est and After school, I also heard they also mistreating Seventeen…. 🙁

  • yeah

    I’m confused of who is the face of the group… Minhyun or Minki???

  • Let’s add that fact that Ren ( Minki) is a Lady Gaga Super Fan

  • tune

    so happy for Minhyun! he’s place 9th on Produce 101 *__*

  • Reunie

    I’m also happy for him but also sad that Jong Hyun (JR) didn’t make it

    the visual (considered most handsome member according to Korea standards) is Minhyun. Minki is the face of the group (meaning the most well-known member)

  • sz1803

    Minhyun’s IG acct : @optimushwang

  • Eli

    I don’t think that they are trainee for more than 3 years because the time they stated when joined PD101 is their time as a trainee+5 years of debut

  • munsekki

    please edit Minhyun’s ideal type according to his statement :
    “as long as she has hair”

  • Inna

    Where did you find this? In which interview? *_*

  • munsekki

    the screeshot of his statement is quite popular in twitter, I found it there xD. He did many interviews about that, the recent one is from NUEST VLIVE if I’m not mistaken…

  • Please update the profile,Minhyun already leave the group,now Nu’est become Nu’est W,so now Nu’est W have 4 members only

  • Nurul Aida

    Minhyun doesn’t leaves the group. He will debut as Wanna One member until the contract end (only 1 year, same with I.O.I) then he will joins the group back 🙂

  • Reca

    @disqus_wtAxDqZH6k:disqus
    NU’EST W is just a sub-unit made by the 4 members of NU’EST, except from Minhyun will promote now with WANNA ONE. But NU’EST didn’t disband and Minhyun didn’t left NU’EST. He’s just promoting for about 1 year with WANNA ONE then WANNA ONE will disband and all the members will go back to their official bands/ companies. It’s the same as what happened with I.O.I

  • Could you update the photos to the nuest w photos,

    I just want to know if someone maybe knows the eyecolours of nu’est? Do they often wear lenses? Since I saw a video of JR these days where he had stunning blue eyes O.o
    If I am not mistaken all of them should have brown eyes right?

  • 민사장

    thank you! 🙂

  • Da real Mvp

    the face of the group is now most likely JR as every since he left produce 101 he has been on multiple reality and game shows alone things such as the night goblin, knowing brother and a few more. Both as judge and a participant and is known by many Korea hence why he was called the National Leader Due to his excellent leadership skills in produce 101 and his commitment to showcase other trainees by giving himself close no line. He gave himself on the 4 seconds in one of the most popular performances Never in produce 101. It would be appreciated if you could consider some of this info.

    NU’EST’s Visual is ren minhyun is center

  • <<The Chinese Lelouch

    why was everyone calling Minhyun CEO Hwang?

  • Hoshi

    All of NU’EST are Korean, and most Asians have brown eyes. Yes, they do wear lenses often, I know that Ren had beautiful blue eyes in Overcome.

  • Emily

    @RussianGangster:disqus
    I’m not exactly sure why they call him CEO but I guess it’s another joke, as the one with Emperor. People call him Emperor because his surname is Hwang and in Korean Hwangje = Emperor

  • Emily

    Ren is indeed flashy, but the official visual of NU’EST is Minhyun.

  • Emily

    @RussianGangster:disqus
    Oh wait! I guess I know why they call him CEO…. It must be because of his cool attitude and his good eye for choosing his team members when he was on Produce 101. Look at this funny video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=89&v=Br31n-7H6OU

  • Zahra Bakhtiyari

    JR said that Ren is visual of the group!

  • Emily

    @zahra_bakhtiyari:disqus
    When? Please provide the video! Was he referring to the whole Nu’est or to just Nu’est W?

  • Andicilin

    Mnet Japan’s “Nu’est in love” ep 2 I think.

    In “NU’EST V time : 뉴이스트의 보이는라디오 L.O.Λ.E STORY 시즌2 7화” they’ve talked about their siblings.
    JR – 2 older sisters, 3 and 6 years older.
    Aron – 2 younger sisters, 3 and 6 years younger.
    Baekho – 1 younger brother, 1 year younger.
    Minhyun – 1 older sister, 1 year older.
    Ren – 1 older brother, 2 years older.

  • Sesyl

    Pledis themselves said that Nu’est W mean Nu’est Waiting (for Minhyun), they explained that when they revelead the name of the unit this summer

  • Mika

    But Ren is shorter then JR? He almost always looks shorter.

  • genie

    JR has two older sisters, Baekho has a younger brother and Aron has two younger sisters (source namu.wiki)

  • Anne Lhoraine

    There is one other member of nuest, he is Jason.. he is a chinese member

  • Sherry Saito

    Actually, Jason has never been member of Nu’est, he was member of sub-unit “Nu’est M” that was active in 2013/2014. It was project between Pledis Entertainment (Nu’est) and Yuehua Entertainment (Jason). Nu’est M disbanded in 2014 because Jason left YE.

  • May Ocampo

    1. His role models are Eminem, and BIGBANG.
    2. JR likes black, yellow, and green, but for hair color he prefers black.

  • seisgf

    JR is now a fixed MC on JTBC’s show LAN Cable Life. He was supposed to just be a special MC for the first two episodes, but he impressed the staff so they promoted him.

  • seisgf

    Aron has a dog named Noah and Ren has a cat named Lucky.

  • I wish you would inform who is roommates with who, but I also couldn’t seem to find this kind of information anywhere, besides some fans commenting Ren and JR were roommates since trainees. also, I guess they’re not sharing a room while promoting as NU’EST W, too.

  • m i n e l l e

    Ren’s stage name in Korean is (렌)

    Minhyun’s name is (민현)

    Thank you for the help! 🙂

  • B J Rosen

    Um, the descriptions of their personalities are somewhat off. Baekho is sweet, funny, loves food, and is scared of travelling alone on the subway. Aron is a complete goofball who loves bad puns and pulling pranks on the members. Ren is super extra, he loves to dance around in the dorm and annoy JR while he’s trying to game. JR is a huge anime and gamer nerd. He watches anime even while the group is waiting to go onstage. Minhyun is the mom of the group, always taking care of the others and nagging them to clean. They’re all really goofy, silly, and funny.

  • B J Rosen

    It’s true. Minhyun is visual and Ren is a vocal. 🙂

  • B J Rosen

    Not really fair to make them dance to a song with no choreo for it yet. LOL

  • despacito

    Nu’est release a song called I Don’t Care.

  • Sheryl D Newton-Turk

    I think it’s because Ren used to be the Face of the Group and people confuse that as the visual. But I think they had their roles change back and forth for years.

  • Sheryl D Newton-Turk

    I know I’m late but his ideal type had short hair. He changed it because girls started cutting their hair and he didn’t want that to happen. He then changed his ideal type as to someone that had a head, which made all the members laugh. I think you have to look at their old videos on YouTube to get this information.

  • Sheryl D Newton-Turk

    JR; Ren; and Baekho have been together for 10 years. When JR was leaving for Laws of the Jungle they talked about the 10 days being the longest they had been separated in 10 years. JR was the 1st male trainee and Ren said when he arrived JR was really lonely because JR had been in Pledis for 1 year and the only other trainees were older women which made him very shy

  • Fullday

    wow thank you for the information. Really enjoy it! They are all so precious.

  • Fullday

    Thanks to Produce 101 season 2 that I know them 🙂

  • Crystal Flowers

    I’m relatively new to nu’est so I’m confused: is Ren not a visual? He was voted a visual center in p101 and I remember Baekho doing his hair in a vlive (or love record?) once and saying that he has to do it because he’s a visual. I’ve seen both him and Minhyun called visuals.

  • qare

    he has awesome visuals, but the official visual in the fandom is considered Minhyun

  • Crystal Flowers

    This is a bit late but sadly, people suspect that it has to do with minhyun akgaes who often chose baekho as a target :((( They edited screenshots of his posts on fancafe to make it seem like he was saying bad things about minhyun and he deleted his instagram soon after.
