During the latest DIVE Studios‘ K-Pop Daebak with Eric Nam episode, NU’EST‘s Baekho And Minhyun sat down with Eric Nam and discussed everything from their new album route into K-Pop, and what they would be if they weren’t idols.
One of the questions from a fan was what their honest first impressions of each other were!
Minhyun started and explained how Baekho, Ren, and JR were already trainees before he started. He recalled how there was one time when they had gone home, but Baekho couldn’t get home for some reason, so he stayed in the studio and practiced.
He then shared how, although Baekho looked hard to approach and it was difficult to start a conversation with him initially, you should never judge a book by its cover.
Baekho took me back to the dorms, and his mom made tteokgalbi and sent it for us to eat. That left a big impression on me and left me thinking, ‘He has a warm heart even though he looks like this.’
Baekho then described his first impression of Minhyun, saying that he “looked very pale and tall.”
He looked very tidy. It felt like he had a clean and pure personality.
He then recalled a time when Minhyun slipped under a car during winter and couldn’t get out. He was fine, but Baekho remembered how funny it was seeing him call out for help.
So Minhyun became a clumsy kind of friend to me after that.
