Facts about Zelo Maknae

Choi Jun Hong, "Men live and die."
When asked how he became a singer, Zelo commented, "When I was little, when I came home I was a child that didn’t play a lot by myself. After returning home, in front of my mom's mirror, I’d beatbox and dance by myself. That day, I realized a neighborhood TV shooting location was there. Then, my friend came from there saying 'I got a game card so I’ll take you with me' and we discussed how we should leave. However, my mom was there secretly. After returning home from school, without saying anything and abandoning my backpack, I left… My mom wore sunglasses and followed behind us, saying 'My son is on stage dancing and rapping' (laughs). It started from that time. From 5th grade on I started my speciality in rap, beatboxing, and dance. After joining this company, about 1 year passed till our debut."
