“When my position in JUMP gradually got further and further into the back, I was troubled and thought “Why is it that I’m working so hard and yet no one pays attention to me?” But after I was able to appeal to the fans through playing the drums, I realized that there was something that I could do from this position. So when I was able to be in the centre for SUPER DELICATE, I didn’t get very excited. To not go too much into the spotlight, to not get overshadowed by the people behind, what I found was the most important was the balance among the 9 members. It was because I had experienced the ups and downs that I am able to do that in these 5 years.”

i have gained the utmost respect for him.
no one likes being pushed to the back after being in the center for so long
yet, he didn’t show it blantantly and accepting it
