DK is Seventeen’s resident ‘Happy Virus’. He has revealed in interviews that he wishes to become someone who has a positive effect on the people around him, he wants to be able to help them and give them hope. With these noble intentions in mind, DK is almost always smiling and joking and he approaches every situation with unfathomable optimism and enthusiasm. A very funny guy, DK is one third of Seventeen’s famous ‘Gag Trio’ alongside Hoshi and Seungkwan, proving himself to be incredibly comfortable in front of the camera by making even the simplest things hysterically funny.
DK is not just one of the happiest and funniest members of Seventeen but he is also the most outgoing and is able to make a relationship with absolutely anyone. Despite being the last member to join the group he was able to get on with all of his fellow members quickly and easily. In a poll they all voted him as the funniest member.
Now, before you start to think that DK doesn’t take his music very seriously, let me tell you categorically and without a doubt, that there is nothing in this world that is more important to DK than his singing. He practices even when he is resting and has been known to get upset and cry when he thinks he isn’t doing well enough. Diligent, hard-working and overwhelmingly talented despite only just having become an adult, DK is absolute ‘Shining Diamond’.
Picking him out from the crowd
Here’s the fun bit! Anyone who is a fan of k-pop knows that there is simply no point in using a hair style or make up style to try and identify a member as they change them like they change their clothes so I will focus on facial features and give you a quick run down of his outfits from a couple of M/Vs / performances to make it a little easier for you to find the happiest man on earth amongst his bandmates in future.
