ENHYPEN’s Sunghoon Shared A Sweet Memory About BTS’s Jungkook

He talked about his dreams, how BTS inspired them, and more.

Like many of ENHYPEN‘s members, Sunghoon looks to his BTS seniors as role models.

On an episode of I-LAND, Sunghoon, a former professional figure skater, revealed that BTS inspired him to become an idol. “About two years ago, I started dreaming about becoming an idol,” he said. “I went to a BTS concert…”

“…and I wanted to be on stage like them, and I wanted to be an awesome person like them. I think that’s when I decided on my dream.

Now, Sunghoon’s dream has come true. After a cutthroat competition on I-LAND, Sunghoon made it into the Top 7 chosen to debut in ENHYPEN. Not only that, he was able to meet BTS and become their HYBE junior under BE:LIFT.

I wanted to become an idol, watching BTS’s performances. Now I want to put on amazing performances just like them and develop a kind of aura.

In an interview with Weverse Magazine, Sunghoon talked about his dreams and debuting. He also shared a memory about Jungkook.

“I ran into Jung Kook in the company lounge once,” he said. “and he was so friendly when I said hello to him, and I was so happy when he cheered me on.”

Since BTS knows what it’s like to be rookies, they never miss a chance to be kind to their juniors.
