Recently, an online community board gained attention as an elementary school friend of Sunoo made a post about him. They also shared a few photos as some netizens wanted proof that this was real.

I went to the same elementary school as Sunoo, Chilbong Elementary School located in Suwon. I was really close with Sunoo up until about fifth grade. (I’m not totally sure but the last photo I have with him was taken in the fifth grade). We would go over to each other’s houses every day and we would print out characters and play with them. We also tried out for the school’s chorus and won an award as well. I was what you would call best friends with Sunoo.

They later found out the news about Sunoo’s debut and expressed their happiness for his success.

But after graduating elementary school, we went to different middle schools and haven’t kept in touch with him since then. After middle school, I went overseas to study so I didn’t hear any news about my school friends. But then last October, one friend told me the news about Sunoo and I was totally shocked. I knew he was always pretty-looking and had a lot of talent but I never thought he would become a celebrity. I looked him up on YouTube and watched a few videos. He really seemed to suit being an idol.

They hoped that by sharing this message that more people would show interest in Sunoo.

The reason I am writing this post is so that my friend Sunoo can become more famous and more people can take interest in him. I don’t know how he was in middle or high school, but I know that in elementary school, he was a really kind and good friend. If I could, I would love to send him a message of encouragement, but because I don’t have his contact info, I am writing this post online instead. Please love Sunoo! Sunwoo fighting!

It seems like our Sunoo has been a loving and kind soul since his younger days!
