    Thanks for the info, it’s really appreciated! 🙂

  • Won Woo isn’t my bias but I always feel like he and I have so much in common. Being a homebody is one, being a reader is another, being a shy person and takes time to warm up with people, being a non-believer of love at first sight, blue is also my fave color (next to yellow), scary movies are my thing too, and I also think Seung Cheol is the best looking SVT member.

  • Fit Yaa

    Is that true that Wonwoo is close to B.A.P’s Himchan?? I need proof for that..

  • yul

    Himchan said it in B.A.P’s Celuv iTV ‘I am Celeb’

    d) Wisdom and Knowledge is the Key.
    e) We have the same birthday except the year and the same blood type.
    f) I am decent at rapping (and dancing).
    g) I have a warm and shy personality.
    h) I also do not believe in love at first sight.

  • shy

    lmao we are similar to a lot of things..guitar lessons, being scared of dogs, scary movies, likes color blue, sad songs before bed, can’t eat seafood, pomegranates, likes reading..and I do believe that “it’s rare to fall in love that quickly” (unless the person is your soulmate) but yeah..it’s very RARE.
    Wonwoo FTW! <3

  • veronica vo

    the only thing we have in common is that we have the same birthday but even then he’s 10 yrs older than me

  • YANG FOX

    Wonwoo likes Mingyu, but he always denies it. The person that suits Wonwoo is Mingyu. Wonwoo is almost a year older than Mingyu. Wonwoo and Mingyu together is MEANIE. Ship Meanie for perfection, because those two together can’t get anymore perfect!
