SaraG: Ok, you ready??? YANAN!
SaraG: Yanan was born in shanghai, China in 1996….making him 22 in October.
SaraG: He used to be one of the mid height members but then he hurt his hand right before Critical Beauty came and Cube let him go home while he healed and he came back as tall or taller than Wooseok.
SaraG: He came in as a trainee to Cube through an audition in China.
Stephanie: For some reason I read that as Cuba. I was like…well that’s new.
SaraG: Despite what Shinwon says, Yanan is the actual visual.
SaraG: He’s known for being…lost. And I don’t mean directionally. He’s random and goofy and is never quite sure what’s going on around him.
SaraG: He trained on the traditional Chinese instrument the Ehru for ten years. He speaks Mandarin and Korean. His Korean wasn’t great when pentagon got together but it’s improved a ton. Before he joined Cube, he wanted to be a flight attendant.
Stephanie: Well that’s adorable. You don’t hear that very often. Hmmmm… flight attendant or idol—like a six-year-old.
SaraG: He and Yuto are quite tight…both kind of quiet and in the background.
Stephanie: Awwww…. Yutoda!
SaraG: But in the dorm, as I’ve mentioned before, he shares a room with Yeo One and they are super close.
Stephanie: The one and only Yeo. Awww….
SaraG: They call Yanan the Chinese Prince. He’s kind of perfect looking, like a doll.
SaraG: Yuto ranks him #1 in the group for looks. He’s another one that was a swimmer.
Stephanie: Does he have a smaller face than some of the others?
SaraG: I am not a good judge of ‘small face’. I never figured out what it means.
Stephanie: Shorter? Maybe — trying to pick him out.
SaraG: He’s a giant.
Stephanie: No his face, not him himself — I know he rivals Wooseok now.
SaraG: He’s got thick eyebrows.
SaraG: And he has thickish lips but holds a lot of tension in his mouth.
Stephanie: Eyebrows, Eyebrows, Yanan Eyebrows.
SaraG: So he’s known for being quite sexy, but childlike…he claims to have never had a girlfriend. Ever. I assume that mean or a boyfriend but I could be wrong…
SaraG: He’s afraid of roller coasters. Terrified.
SaraG: Can you spot him? He’s a sub vocalist for the group…he’s gotten a bit of a higher pitched voice. Pretty easy to pick out. He does the ‘baby’ part in Shine…with his arms in the air
Stephanie: BLONDE. That’s how I remember him.
Stephanie: Except…. when he’s a brown hair.
SaraG: But soooooo beautiful. Well, they all are. But… He’s Chinese beautiful. There you have Yanan…two members to go….
Usually in the back
If asked, he says that he’s ‘made in China’
USUALLY IN THE BACK*
*unless he’s on the side
MollyInKdramaland: Yanan – there’s something really sweet about him. He gives off such sweet, innocent (a bit clueless) charm. He’s quiet but incredibly likeable. I remember him cause of his nose. It’s a little bit flat and – to me – makes him look different than the others. Awww – he’s the official visual of the group. Love that. Actually they could all be the visual – every single one. Pentagon is a group of incredibly good-looking guys.
