Fans are calling NU’EST’s Jonghyun “Wartortle” Due To His Unique PR Video

During Produce 101‘s PR episodes, NU’EST‘s talented leader gave his charming introduction using Pokémon and fans loved it.

NU’EST’s Kim Jonghyun may have had one of the most epic and unexpected Produce 101, Season 2, PR videos this season. He began his int’oduction in the video by showing a picture of his favorite Pokémon called “Wartortle” and proceeded to pose like the cartoon creature in the image.

Once Jonghyun was finished with his memorable introduction, he performed an impressive dance for the judges and ended his video by asking viewers for votes with Pokéballs.

This audition video spread like wildfire and has caused many of his fans to call him Wartortle instead of Jonghyun.
