He has high self esteem and he doesn’t really get swayed by the stuff around him, so he doesn’t stress about them. He also gets popular wherever he goes and he’s full of energy. He has a solid footing in the idol industry and now he’s also doing well in acting and variety shows. He doesn’t get any hate and he’s growing his popularity among the general public too. His group’s members all seem like decent people and they even look close to each other, and he has tons of fans supporting him in whatever he does. And these are almost all core fans. But all this aside, he’s only in his early 20s……. Rather than getting his head inflated with money and committing crimes left and right like other celebrities, he doesn’t need to commit wrong actions and have bad thoughts even having been born with everything… I’m so envious of him that I can’t even be envious”
-“Do you know this? You can tell when someone has been raised in a family freely and has been spoiled in their lives. Yook Sungjae looks are glamorous, he’s talented and his words are pretty too…. He looks like the type who received a lot of love when he was young and grew up like that”
-“When arrived the time for BTOB to renew his contracts, there was another company who offered him so much more in terms of perks and pay but because of his hyungs, he couldn’t quit it ㅠㅠㅠ Sungjae was just never greedy for money”
