    When he said that he likes girls who make ramyun well, the other members said that he and Kihyun would be a perfect match, and when they pointed out Kihyun is a guy, Wonho replied with that he doesn’t care about gender.
    Also, he used to date this girl who is now a guy, and, although he didn’t date the guy when he was transitioning or after, he stayed as his friend through the transition.

    Thank you for the additional info, it’s really appreciated! 🙂

  • Jordan Cooper

    Just to be clear, not marrying/not wanting to have kids does not mean he wants to be celibate, you might want to think about editing that part.

  • rose’s no 1 fan

    @jordan_cooper:disqus
    but a celibate is mainly a person who abstains from marriage. I don’t think that’s something wrong though.

  • Jordan Cooper

    The reason why I’m suggesting an edit is because the definition of celibacy is abstaining from marriage AND sexual relations. I don’t see any issue with him not wanting to marry, but just because he’s not the marrying kind, it doesn’t mean he wants to abstain from sex (not that that’s any of our business). It’s just an issue of word choice, “celibacy” is kind of a strong word.

  • KProfiles

    @jordan_cooper:disqus
    Thanks for the suggestion! 🙂

  • hoseok’s lisp in miss you

    he said that he gender doesn’t matter as long as you can make ramyun well

    also, when none of the members wants to eat along with him, he plays music for not feeling alone

  • annadangg

    wonho was born in 1993 not 1992

  • Yvette

    Shownu’s birthday is confirmed as 18th June 1992, right? The only question is about Wonho’s birthday which is 1st March 1992 OR 1st March 1993.
    BUT if he’s born in 1st March 1993 he’s younger than Shownu and the members said several times that Wonho is the oldest hyung. How is this explained?????

  • *~Nyx~*

    No Wonho is a 93′. He went to school with the 92′ liners because his birthday is early March. Shownu even says on “Weekly Idol” that he is the oldest followed by Wonho. Korean age is really different because they use a Lunar Calendar. Like for example, Hyungwon is the “same age” as Minhyuk and Kihyun even though he’s a 94′ liner and they are 93′ since he was born earlier in the year on January 14th. You can be 1-3 years older than your international age in Korea depending on where your birthday falls.

  • Eveline

    But in this video Jooheon clearly says that Wonho is the eldest member of their group!
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkAfATJCLv0
    (Skip to 2:20)

    Please also post the video when Shownu says he is the oldest followed by Wonho!

  • *~Nyx~*

    Eldest and oldest have two different meanings. They are implying eldest as in an older brother, because he is the older brother to I.M. Not that he is the oldest in the group. Eldest does not mean oldest, it just means having a greater age to someone else. Like in this situation they are comparing Wonho to I.M = Wonho is the eldest to I.M.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ml6szCuJA8c
    Skip to 51:20
    He uses eldest here because he is comparing them as a group. He’s the eldest to everyone followed by Wohno etc.

  • Eveline

    If anyone is still wondering if Wonho is born in 1992 and is the oldest, yes he is! Here is another proof:

    Wonho said it himself in the “X marks the Spot” interview that appeared in Sparkling Magazine Winter 2016 that he is the oldest member

    https://i.imgur.com/9FpFlle.jpg

  • Eveline

    No, he was born in 1992 and is the eldest member. Wonho himself said that he is the eldest member in the “X marks the Spot” interview that appeared in Sparkling Magazine Winter 2016
    https://i.imgur.com/6wDqwbD.jpg

  • *~Nyx~*

    Honestly there’s too much controversy to say either one is correct. He said this in 2016, but last year Shownu said, in the video above, that he’s the oldest followed by Wonho. His Official Korean profile says 93′ so that’s what we should go by until he releases his year of birth. He has never said he was born in 92′ but it has been said that he attended school with 92′ liners because of his early birthday.

  • namee

    I think is pretty obvious lol

    in 2016 Wonho said he’s the oldest, then in 2017 Jooheon also said that Wonho is the oldest member of the group, but after that Starship decided to lie about his age, like they did with Hyorin and Bora duh

    Wonho knows the best what is his age, not his company (who clearly were caught lying about others of their idols) and not Shownu who its obvious that says what the company decided lol

  • Ema

    I’m kind of amazed this isn’t on the list yet……….. When he was in NuBoyz, he used to go by the name Sino (pronounced Shino).

  • KProfiles

    @Ema21:disqus
    Well, I’m sure there are still many other facts that are not added, because it’s basically impossible to know all the facts about all the idols, that’s why any fans’ help it’s really appreciated. So, thanks for the info, it’s much appreciated! 🙂

  • moenigs

    For their MV for “Hero” they had to get his doctor to prescribe Wonho with medication so he would be able to film on that rooftop cause his acrophobia affects him so strongly.
