We are finally weeks away from seeing the resident cutie Bae Jinyoung for his first ever fan meet in Manila! What is the best way to pump ourselves up while counting down days until we see our Bae-by than to list down a couple of times that made us fall in love with him?
1. Introducing himself for the first time in Produce 101 Season 2
Jinyoung made such a lasting first impression with his introduction video for the survival show, Produce 101 Season 2. He donned a crown prince’s costume, and did the “bombastic” dance ala Park Bogum in “Moonlight Drawn by the Clouds”.
2. Charming his teammates and becoming the center
In a show where being a “center” is important, Jinyoung manage to clench this most coveted position for Produce 101 Season 2’s last song. This was his last hurrah before successfully getting into the final group, Wanna One.
3. Becoming your one-minute boyfriend in SNL Korea
Jinyoung showed his charming side as a temporary boyfriend in a hilarious SNL Korea skit. He showcased his prince-like characteristics, topped with his gorgeous looks, and although the skit was made for laughs, we definitely agree that he would make such a charming boyfriend!
4. Showed that he is Wanna One’s “maknae on top”
As a Wanna One member, Jinyoung also showed how much he is doted on by his hyungs, and how much he loves them, as seen in this clip from variety show “Happy Together”. Their friendship still goes on even after the disbandment, with Jinyoung sending congratulatory flower wreaths, uploading proof of streaming, and even attending his members’ respective events.
5. Co-writing and releasing his first solo song “Hard to Say Goodbye”
Jinyoung started his post-Wanna One career with a a solo song which he co-wrote. The lyrics and the music video were both emotional, and we get to have a sneak peek of his deep emotions, adding once again to one of his many, many charms.
Listing five of Bae Jinyoung’s many unique charms just made us wanting to see him the soonest! And we can’t wait to see more of his charms at his first ever solo fan meeting. Manila will be the first stop in his Asia tour, after wrapping up a successful 2-day fan meeting in Seoul, and we are just excited!
Bae Jinyoung’s fan meeting “I’m Young” in Manila will be held on May 18 at the New Frontier Theater. For more details, click here.
