Fans were shocked to see that he later on debuted as part of PENTAGON under the name, Shinwon.

Shinwon even once talked about it on live stream. He mentioned that he got an offer from the cafe to work for them, and he accepted. He worked there when he was 20 years old. Later on, he was told by a casting director for CUBE Entertainment to try out for an audition, and the rest is history.

We’re sure fans are grateful he had that opportunity to gain exposure before his official debut! How many of you recall his ulzzang cafe worker days?
