“I’m a person who likes to receive attention and love, so it’s hard when that doesn’t happen. It took a long time for BTOB to become known. Even after being loved as a group, I wondered about my identity. ‘What’s my role in here?’ BTOB is my biggest pride, but I couldn’t prove myself with it,” he said.

Minhyuk also spoke about his desire not to be disrespected. So when he received comments that he was incompetent, he used it as a driving force instead and challenged himself to show everyone what he’s got.

The idol also reflected on his desire to “go higher” in his personal and professional lives.

To do so, he reportedly observed a repeated cycle to enhance his capacity as a person and an idol.

He disclosed that he feels the need to work hard to show his skills and prove himself. Despite his busy schedule, he makes sure to go on a vacation and still work out wherever he is.

“When you’re a rookie, you don’t know that you can’t come this far with just your ability. You’ll have to experience it. Everyone comes to see you when you’re loved, but how many people will be with you when you’re down? Arrogant people will have nobody around them,” he went on.
