TREASURE is the largest group that YG Entertainment ever debuted. They are currently composed of ten members: Hyunsuk, Jihoon, Junkyu, Yoshi, Asahi, Jaehyuk, Doyoung, Haruto, Jeongwoo, and Junghwan.
In an interview on YouTube channel Today’s Joo Woo Jae (오늘의 주우재), leader Hyunsuk, along with maknae-line members Jeongwoo and Haruto, answered questions posed by fans. One of them was on the person whom the eldest member considers most childish.
Hyunsuk, who do you think is the kid in TREASURE? As a leader, the person who doesn’t listen the most.
— MC Woojae
Hyunsuk’s reply came immediately: “These two.” He pointed at Jeongwoo and Haruto and confirmed that they were the most difficult to manage.
He admitted that his answer was not based on anything malicious. Rather, the two simply act carefree just like other guys their age.
These two guys joke around a lot. These [18-year old guys] are really playful nowadays.
They annoy Hyunsuk in different ways: while Jeongwoo has a sharp mouth, Haruto has a sharp aim.
For Jeongwoo, he really attacks me with his words. And [Haruto] comes for me physically. Like, he suddenly pokes my side or tickles me.
Jeongwoo’s verbal attacks often come in the form of talking informally. He sometimes, for instance, deliberately forgoes calling him hyung.
Let’s say we are going to the company today and Jeongwoo is there first. He says, ‘Hyunsuk, come here’ and I play along: ‘Yes, Sir!’
As the host noticed, they can only play along this way because Hyunsuk allows it. The group has a strong bond that is not restricted by their ages.
