Stray KidsHyunjin is known for his handsome visuals, smooth MC-ing, and breathtaking dancing. Part of what makes him one of a kind, though, is his unique personality.

 

That’s what took the spotlight during the recently aired New Year’s special of the Idol Star Athletics Championship. Before the real challenges began, eyes were already on Hyunjin during the warm-ups.

As soon as the warm-ups began, Hyunjin had already started off on the wrong foot. Lifting and circling his arms, he seemed to be rolling them in the opposite direction of everyone else. He’d also started just a bit earlier, making him stand out more.

Afterward, Hyunjin didn’t know what to do with his hands, settling on a little shimmy as he lowered them. He looked so out of place compared to everyone else that Aeji from Hashtag couldn’t help but look over at him and laugh.

During another portion, Hyunjin stood utterly still, one hand hanging in the air. He didn’t have any clue what was happening. With a look of total confusion, Hyunjin stared forward, trying to process what to do next. Since he was right in front of the camera, host Jun Hyun Moo noticed instantly, “Ah, Hyunjin-ssi.” He didn’t remain that way for long, though.

In only a few seconds, Hyunjin caught onto the movements and jumped right into the warm-up exercise like he’d been doing it the whole time.

 

Even with the camera on him, he didn’t stop being himself. Funnily enough, that’s what stole the spotlight. Watch Hyunjin capture everyone’s hearts by being Hyunjin: having no idea what’s going on and doing his own thing.
