SEVENTEEN’s Seungkwan Reveals The Senior K-Pop Idol Who He Thinks Is “The Real Legend”

He inspired Seungkwan as a trainee.

SEVENTEEN‘s Seungkwan recently had a live broadcast with fans where he sang along to notable K-Pop tracks throughout the years. Besides praising TWICE‘s Jihyo and Oh My Girl‘s Seunghee for their high notes, he also touched on the male singers that he looks up to.

One of them is none other than B.A.P‘s Daehyun. As their debut song “Warrior” played in the background, Seungkwan couldn’t help but fanboy over him and his incredible adlibs, as well as his courage to do a high note even if it was the group’s first song.

It’s their first album but they still have an adlib part.

Though Seungkwan is a main vocalist as well, he marveled over Daehyun’s vocal control, saying, “Daehyun does it so well!”

In fact, he was inspired by his senior to become a better vocalist. When B.A.P debuted in early 2012, Seungkwan was a fresh trainee under PLEDIS Entertainment.

When I was a trainee, I wanted to sing adlibs like him.

He revealed that SEVENTEEN covered “Warrior” when they were still trainees, and in fact, Woozi may still remember the dance!


When we were trainees, we used to cover B.A.P songs a lot…if Woozi has a [broadcast] next time, ask him to do the dance for ‘Warrior.’ I think he remembers it.

Seunkwan may be an established K-Pop idol himself, but he still looks up to his seniors. To him, Daehyun is “the real legend.”
