Pilot, and good at it too. He and Yoo Kihyun have taken down 10 Kaiju so far in their Jaeger Trespass Queen. Though fifty-story aliens are afraid at the mention of his name, he's famous for his softness outside of combat. When he appears on TV shows the ladies love tuning in to watch this tall, broad, soft man talk. They also buy all the calendars and magazines he does shoots for. Very popular and admired in the shatterdome.
Though the general public loves Shownu, if you're a lady in the Shatterdome, you probably have eyes for Shin Hoseok. He's the babe in charge of the KWOON, where Jaeger pilots go to work out and improve their physical combat skills, and oh man what most girls--and guys too--would do to snag a sparring match with him. Wonho is also a very talented singer and dancer (but underrated, sadly) and has made friends of many of the Jaeger pilots he trains.
It came as a great surprise to everyone when in training Kihyun and Shownu were paired together to pilot Trespass Queen as they didn't seem alike at all in any way. However it quickly came to light that it was the best choice. Kihyun is a little ball of energy, sassy and witty as all get out. When he's focused and determined, he can match Shownu in agility and capability. His quick thinking has saved them a few times in full-on combat.
In charge of the medical bay, Minhyuk is the one to go see when you're hurt, and also on an on-off basis acts as a medical researcher for the Corps. He's seen pilots so critically injured that they pass away from their wounds, and it affects him very deeply but he pushes on knowing that his work is saving so many more people. He's also called the comforter in the Shatterdome, as he's always willing to give out hugs and snuggles if you need it. Extremely good friends with Wonho.
Though Chae Hyungwon is a great deal younger than many of the other officers on base, his high-class birth, leadership qualities, and good looks have allowed him to quickly rise to third-in-command in the PPDC. He might seem cold and calculating at first, but get him comfortable or around Minhyuk or Wonho and you quickly discover that he's a very gentle and peaceful soul, maybe even vulnerable. He, too, has quite a big fanbase, bigger than one might expect.
Master mechanic. He is almost never seen without a smudge of grime or oil on his cute, smiley face or a wrench of some sort in his hand. When he's working and focused, he is known to look scary, but off of the shop floor, he's just a huge ball of fluff and cute. Some say that if he was a Jaeger pilot, he'd be flying with Changkyun, his best friend. Has a fairly successful underground rap career in his spare time.
Jaeger technician, but not in the same way as Jooheon. Changkyun, whose call sign is I.M, deals with the electronic side of things and also runs LOCCENT on Trespass Queen's missions. Despite being the youngest of the so-called 'big seven', and the last to arrive and be accepted, he's won great respect and a spot in everyone's hearts. Some say that if he was a Jaeger pilot, he'd be flying with Jooheon, his best friend.

The Jaeger Program (or Jaeger Project) was a project that focused on the development of massive mobile weapons called Jaegers in response to the Kaiju threat. It was funded by the Pan Pacific Defense Corps and the United Nations.
Gipsy Danger has served the Pan Pacific Defense Corps with a record of nine confirmed Kaiju kills. It is a Mark-3 class, standing at 79 meters tall and weighing 1,980 tons.
Gipsy’s 08FS/Oceanic Cooling vents maintain temperature and channel seawater through the circulatory coolant system; 98BD/Hyper-Torque Drives allow Gipsy Danger’s muscle strands increased locomotion. Gipsy’s Nuclear Vortex Turbine maintains health checks and returned radio chemical readings in excess of safety parameters. The turbine can also be utilized to fire a directed heat weapon powerful enough to puncture completely through a grappling Kaiju when fired at point blank range.
Equalizing the Jaeger’s movement are 10KT/Gyro-Stabilizers, which allow for smooth bipedal motion and stabilize aggressor feud. Gipsy Danger also features two rear jets which allows for an increase in forward movement for a limited amount of time. They can be used to aid in the the Jaeger’s ability to leap into the air, quickly decreasing the distance between it and a kaiju to land a melee attack.
