The truth is, my big brother was fellow trainees with Junkyu, and my big brother said Junkyu tried so hard that he figured only kids like that would debut.

He also commented on Junkyu’s insane duality that fans know and love him for.

He also thought it was so cool that he would smile like a sweet kid and then transform completely during practice!!

Junkyu’s positive energy and sweet demeanor are evident off-stage…

…but the moment the time comes to focus, he switches completely and works hard!

Despite the two parting ways, Junkyu’s presence still left a lasting impression on him.

After that, my brother prepared to become a model, and once Junkyu entered the agency, they naturally drifted apart. But my brother praises Junkyu like crazy every time TREASURE is brought up, so I decided to post this!

— Netizen

In the end, their impression of Junkyu’s work ethic was right — His hard work lead him to great success as a valued and talented member of TREASURE!
