Jay lived in the United States until he was 9 years old and is fluent in English. Also, he can speak Japanese fluently because he has been studying Japanese on his own since before his debut!
He has a straightforward personality and is honest with his feelings, such as a straight and hot man, so he has the characteristic of showing emotions on his face.
For that reason, in “I-LAND”, he revealed his unadorned personality and gained fans, but he also created an event called the black history!
The reason why Jay is said to be black history is that among them, from the words ” grudge (원망), anger (분노), shame (수치심) “, the nickname “Wonbunsu” (원분수) is attached!
Now, both himself and the members are known as the official black history maker, and he is established as ENHYPEN’s teased character!

He became a fan of BTS after seeing BTS’ “DNA” on an American billboard and dreamed of becoming an idol himself.
Appeared in “I-LAND” in just 9 months as a trainee. Due to his inexperience, there were some awkward parts, and the initial evaluation was not high. However, as the test progressed, his ability increased and he was fascinated by the surprising growth speed!
He was able to improve my skills in a short period of time because of his desperate efforts to practice during breaks and stoic attitude that never gave up. Even after debuting with ENHYPEN, he worked so hard that he was called a “practice bug” and his growth speed hasn’t slowed down!

Jungwon is the leader of ENHYPEN.
He has been doing taekwondo for about 4 years since he was 7 years old, and was able to win a prize in a competition. However, when he was scouted by SM Entertainment, he quit taekwondo and became an SM trainee.
After that, his friend’s Big Hit trainee mother showed Jungwon’s photo to the Big Hit casting team, so he transferred to be a Big Hit trainee, and after a total of more than 4 years of training, he joined “I-LAND”.
At the time of the audition, he was 16 years old, and despite his young age, his mental age is impressive. Even if he received a bad evaluation from the producer, Jungwon showed a positive attitude to find improvement points and have the idea of cooperating with his colleagues to solve the problem!
Many people point out that Jungwon has many habits, such as pulling the hood, pulling down the sleeves of his clothes, moving his eyebrows, and turning his palms up when he sits down. If you keep looking closely, you may discover new habits!

ENHYPEN’s maknae (youngest) and Japanese member Ni-ki.
Niki is one of ENHYPEN’s famous dancers who started dancing when he saw a DVD of Michael Jackson when he was only 3 years old.
In 2017, he had the experience of performing as a SHINee kid at SHINee’s Tokyo Dome performance. At that time, He was moved to stand on a big stage for the first time and had a dream of “I want to stand here again”.
Considering the current popularity of ENHYPEN in Japan, the Tokyo Dome performance will not be too far away. In “I-LAND”, he showed overwhelming dance skills and was highly praised by the participants and judges.
While other trainees take an hour to learn the choreography, Ni-ki is a dance copy genius who can learn it in just 10 minutes! He is a reliable maknae who leads everyone during choreography practice for ENHYPEN members, who are all older than him!
Ni-ki was highly evaluated for dance, but his vocal pitch and facial expressions were pointed out. Considering that he just came to Korea in August 2019 and learned Korean in less than a year and that he was in the middle of his voice change period, he may not have been confident in his singing.
In order to improve his vocal skills, he worked hard at voice training and showed how he grew as the audition progressed. In the final stage, he became a member of ENHYPEN because he improved his vocals, Korean language, and facial expressions!
Speaking of maknae (youngest) in a K-pop group, the is loved by the older members and has a lot of charm! Ni-ki is also one of those maknae-like people, but he has a shy personality, and the way he shows a shy side after being charming makes me cringe!
