From just how good his memory is…

…to how many times he buys clothes for his members, he clarified them all!

He also briefly touched on his reputation when Elle Korea asked him, “[Is it true that] your nickname is LTB?” Yeonjun didn’t even need to ask what “LTB” stands for. He recognized the acronym right away and agreed with it with full confidence.

That’s right. I’m the LTB—Legendary Trainee of BIGHIT.

His confidence was not unfounded. He explained that he was always ranked first place when it came to evaluations among the trainees. Singing, dancing, and rapping were categories all dominated by him. Though he’s sometimes had to share the top of the podium, he’s never gone a step down.

I have been a joint first place winner, but I’ve never missed first place.

Despite his conviction, this title did not come easy to Yeonjun. He previously told Weverse Magazine that he was not a natural dancer and so he’s had to work hard to reach his current level of abilities.

I am not a natural-born dancer. In the beginning I was told that I had a good body shape but lacked muscle. So I worked really hard to build my strength. I also believe the basics are super important in dancing.
