People need to know there is no one like NU’EST Ren, he’s been destroying gender norms and standing for what he believes in since 2012, He’s truly one in a million! #BornThis_RenDay

It’s Ren’s 22nd Birthday today! So I thought I’d write this to let people know how unique Ren is as an idol. Theres many reasons why a fan might stan an idol, but it warms my heart seeing the warm and genuine Love given to Ren today! People have been inspired by everything he stands for and confidence in fighting for what he believes in since day 1.

- Despite being only 16 when he debuted as NU’EST maknae in 2012, he has always challenged gender stereotypes

Ren is basically obsessed with Lady Gaga, and wants to be his fans strength like her. Even in 2012, his debut teaser is obviously inspired by Gaga. Although in the beginning, he said, he did like stuff like long hair and nail art, Pledis kinda OTT ‘girly’ image was forced on him and caused him a lot of trouble, constant misgendering and harassment. But eventually he did grow confident and even had his long blond hair for over 2 years. 

-He challenged Gender Norms yet Again in 2016 in a viral Chinese CF, where he both wore “Men’s” and ‘Women’s” clothing

His Instagram caption said “Am I a Man or Women? I am a Man😂, Fashion Makes a Person and Their Impression” he said people can wear whatever they want to, it doesn’t matter what gender you are. He yet again showed he was a role model to fans who struggled to be accepted. 

-When told he was “Like a girl” by an MC, he replied with “Thank You” He doesn’t consider being called a girl an insult.


In fact I could tell Mingi was pretty angry on the inside, but he remained polite as always, and confidently answered that it made him happy, what a legend!

-The same MC pushed him further trying to insult him by saying he likes to wear Women’s cloths- he calmly replied “I like it,”

Seriously how many idols do you know who’d react like Ren did?! Most male idols masculinity is so fragile they’d try to refuse it imediently; but like I said Ren is one in a million. I love him so much for never taking shit from anyone, and always pushing for equality when it came to fashion/clothing. Its kinda sad most kpop fans don’t know all the times Ren has shut haters and misogynists down! 

-He stands for the causes he believes in, such as wearing the Sewol Ferry Disaster bracelet every single day

-He owns and wears many items that are for Charity, such as MaryMond

He told a fan he feels its meaningful to help people, which really shows how pretty his heart is. The thing is he did all of these things secretly, even before NU’EST became famous this year. He’s always been like this.

-He has always posted about Human Tragedies and natural disasters on his social media to raise awareness

-He constantly tell’s his fans they are perfect the way they are don’t need to change and a pretty heart is the thing that makes you beautiful

Personally, when I saw he said this years ago, i really fell for him. Whenever I hate myself or my appearance, I always remember Ren said this, and feel better … cos honestly it’s true. Even thought he himself is not always confident, he tries to make loves confident, and showers us with love daily irl or in the fancafe. In a country and industry obsessed with physical appearance, for him to say this is pretty progressive and a big deal!

-He’s done countless other amazing things like cheer the Produce 101 trainees up when everyone was depressed, even though he was hurting himself and is always the life and soul of NU’EST, he always protects and cheers up his members.

In conclusion Choi Mingi aka Ren of NU’EST has been mercilessly tearing down Gender and societal norms, while standing up for what he believes him with a confidence few idols have, since he was 16 years old.

Stan a Man who is beautiful inside and out, a total diva, no.1 Gaga fan, powerful maknae and absolute LEGEND REN!! 

[BREAKING NEWS] NU’EST W ACHIEVE THEIR NO.1 DREAM OF A MUSIC SHOW 1ST WIN 6 YEARS AFTER DEBUT! From almost disbanding to no.1!!

NU’EST W got their 1st Win on M Countdown Today with WHERE YOU AT!! 😭   I’M A PROUD ㄴㅇㅅㅌRN! I’VE PRAYED YRS  FOR THIS I’M CRYING, IM’M SHAKING MY HEART IS BEATING OUT OF MY CHEST

 I EXPECTED A RIVER OF TEARS OF TEARS BUT THE MEMBERS WERE SO SHOCKED, THEY WERE IN AWE, THEY JUST STARTED AT EACH OTHER LOOKING SO CONFUSED! JR WAS SO SHOCKED HIS VOICE WOULDN’T COME OUT!!

ㄴㅇㅅㅌ’s have been dreaming about this 6 yrs. People underestimate how much pain comes from your ult. never ever winning. Groups somehow get 15 wins in a row, don’t you think ㄴㅇㅅㅌ’s sometimes get jealous? We felt miserable knowing 1st win was the members dream since debut they never got. It’s a shame now a members has been taken away. At 16, Minhyun wrote in the fan cafe in 2012 how much he wanted 1st win, so Its sad he can’t share this win he wanted to experience so badly with his family NU’EST, However, that’s why they are now a sub-unit “NU’EST W” so ‘NU’ESTs’ first win will be in 2019 when Minhyun returns. Whenever NU’EST receive success they sacrifice 10x more than anyone else to get it!

BEING ABUSED BY PLEDIS, EXILED IN JAPAN FOR 2 YRS, BEING CALLED FLOPS, SLEPT ON, RUMOURS, REDUCING THEMSELVES TO TRAINEES, BEING ROASTED ALIVE JOINING PD101 AS A CHANCE TO SAVE THEMSELVES FROM DISBANDING, AND GOING THROUGH LIVING HELL IN ORDER TO NOT GIVE UP ON THEIR DREAM HAVE ALL LED TO THIS VERY MOMENT!!

I know Minhyun to watched their 1st Win on T.V and cried, upset he’s not there but so so so proud of his family! 

 Aron cried the SO MUCH. Jackson,Mark and Peniel all hugged him tight when he did! Ren went after Aron to console him! He see’s he is loved too after being left behind, and that leaving his family in the USA at 18 and coming to Korea to live his dream was finally worth it

Baekho was in absolute shock!! None of them believed this was year! He made a wish to the moon in 2012 saying that he doesn’t have any other wish but to get 1st win. I hope he knows his father is looking down on him proudly.

 Ren teared up, consoled Aron, tried to give the mic of JR but he couldnt speak. He looked at the fans which the MASSIVE amount of love in his eyes!! his helpless devotion to loves and the members to finally paying off. Even thought he said he felt like running away he stayed- he now knows he is loved for his talent.

 JR WAS IN SHOCK, CHOKED UP WHEN HE TRIED TO DO A SPEECH, THEY ALL JUST STARED AT EACH OTHER IN AWE FOR 5 MINS! He who at 13 joined a company as their 1st male trainee thinking they’d make his dream come true, but instead exiled into foreign countries, constantly blaming himself for their failure. HE KNOWS he lead NU’EST to victory! After the BRUTAL pain he endured as leader he now knows it wasn’t his fault, and he is loved, cherished and the best leader there ever was. He got his 1st win after 6 years, not only as NU’ESTs leader, but as the Nation’s Leader.

DEAR NU’EST, YOU ALMOST DISBANDED A COUPLE MONTHS AGO, BUT NOW YOU ARE ON TOP AND HAVE GOTTEN YOUR NO.1 DREAM, A 1ST WIN, AS NU’EST W.

JR REN ARON BAEKHO MINHYUN YOU ARE VERY DEFINITION OF TALENT, FAMILY, LOVE AND HARD AND! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR NEVER EVER GIVING UP! I WAITED 6 YEARS FOR THIS AND I’M SO HAPPY I GOT TO SPENT IT WITH YOU.

I WRITE THIS WITH TEARS IN MY EYES.

YOU DESERVE THIS, THANK YOU FOR INSPIRING THE WHOLE WORLD TO NEVER GIVE UP ON THEIR DREAM WITH YOUR REVERSAL STORY. 

After 6 Years, ㄴㅇㅅㅌ we finally did!

NU’EST ARE NOW TRUE REVERSAL ICONS OF KPOP!

Minhyun and NU’EST W congratulating each other after M Countdown finished! 

So much happened today:

- NU’EST W perfectly executed “Hello” readjusting the choreography where Ren and Aron covered Minhyun’s parts. 

-Minhyun watched NU’EST W performances and sang along to “If you” the song which is about him and how much the members miss him.

-Minhyun imminently turned around after the show ended to look behind him for his members LMAO “Minhyun look we won M countdown” “OK sure but where are my members???”

-Baekmin shared eye contact across the stage

-Minhyun waved to Aron trying to get his attention which he eventually did

-In the bts video, Minhyun grabs JR’s arm to get his attention and then bows to him.

-OT5 gets separated because too many people are in the way. But NU’ EST W members congratulate Wanna One on winning, the kids are really happy to see Baekho who enthusiastically talks to them.

-Minhyun tries to run after his members reaching the exit

-Even before leaving the exit his head is shooting around looking for NU’EST W, he looks excited. 

-THE BEST PART IS MINHYUN’S FACE LIGHTS UP AND HE LOOKS SO FUCKING HAPPY (gif above) THAT HIS MEMBERS WAITED FOR HIM AT THE EXIT.

-His members all clap for him and he gives them a “fighting!” sign

It’s pretty clear the thing Minhyun looked forward to the most was seeing his members, it’s like he was starved for their presence. He was chasing after them and looking for them so cutely.

This might be the only ot5 interaction we see in 1.5 years so I’ll deeply treasure this moment.

We will wait for him to come home <3
