Because of his shy personality, Hyunjae mentioned that he often is cautious of becoming close to someone.

Q: What qualities are you looking for in “close” friends?

I have to be able to show them my silliest moments. I try to be cautious around people I’m not too close with, because they could judge me based on a moment of interaction they have with me.
