SEVENTEEN‘s Wonwoo showed off his great physique in his recent pictorial for DAZED Korea! Along with his pictorial, Wonwoo also discussed his journey to becoming an idol.
In his interview, Wonwoo revealed that while he dreamed of becoming a singer, he also dreamed about several occupations as well.
Q: Did you dream about being a singer since the beginning?
When I was a kid, I had a lot of dreams. I wanted to be a president and be pro-gamer too! Of course, I also dreamed of becoming a singer. Despite having a lot of dreams, I joined a guitar academy when I was in my third year of middle school. During that time, I understood how fun it is to communicate through music, then I started to dream of doing something with music.
Wonwoo continued and shared that once he arrived in Seoul, he found idols to be charming and then decided to become one as well.
When I came to Seoul, idols looked very attractive to me. From then on, I set goals and ran hard (toward his dreams).
Obviously, Wonwoo was able to achieve his dreams and is now the successful artist he is today! Before ending the interview, Wonwoo was asked how he landed on the role of a rapper and not a vocalist.
Q: I’m curious about what made you take the position of a rapper
At first, I was told that rapping would suit me well since I had a deep voice. At some point, I fell deeply into it. It’s fun to rap and write lyrics. Since then, I became immersed in the position as a rapper.
Wonwoo is certainly talented and can switch from vocalist to rapper easily!
