Guess who’ll be back in Manila? Yes, WINNER! And what better way to get ourselves hyped up for their return than to get to know these talented idols?
The quartet, composed of leader Kang Seung Yoon (YOON), eldest Kim Jinwoo (JINU), and rappers Song Minho (MINO) & Lee Seung Hoon (HOONY), has proven their artistry through their music and have captivated the hearts of both their fans and the public for their quality songs and variety appearances. To be quite honest, it’s not hard to love and support WINNER. Let’s find out some of the reasons why that is.
1. They are completely involved in their own music.
Ever since their debut, the members have been highly involved in creating their albums—both title songs and b-sides. They have a very versatile range of songs: from ballads to pop, from R&B to high energy hip hop, you name it, WINNER has it. These talented artists not only write, compose, and produce their songs, but they also choreograph their lively title tracks! They’re indeed the whole package.
2. They can speak Tagalog!
Kinda. WINNER members have been so sweet to relate to their fans in the Philippines, even knowing more than a word in our language. They asked us if they’re ‘pogi’ (of course they are), and even told Inner Circles they’re ‘maganda’! To the delight of many, they even wittily posted in Tagalog to promote their (cancelled) K-Pop show. Aside from that, they also visited Palawan just last year. We know for sure, they’re Filipinos at heart.
3. They’re so nice that they get fooled quite easily.
Who could ever forget that one time WINNER members got tricked about filming a car ad but in reality, they’re actually gonna get shipped off to Australia without any sort of preparation? It doesn’t just happen in the movies, it really happened with Winner—all for their reality show at least! Check out how they got fooled by the production staff (who made this genius plan) here.
4. They’re absolutely hilarious.
Although they’re charismatic on stage, the WINNER members have been showing their humorous side through variety and reality shows. Especially Song Minho, who’s been showing diverse sides that not only the fans enjoy, but the general public as well, as a regular of “Kang’s Kitchen” and “New Journey to the West”.
5. WINNER loves Inner Circles so, so much.
It’s no question that Winner absolutely adores their fans that they lovingly call “Incles”. Lee Seung Hoon even has a tattoo that describes Winner and Inner Circle on his upper back. The love is definitely reciprocated, as Incles have shown how much they love and support Winner through various ways.
