→ “Lee Howon.” It’s the only thing he said as he stared blankly into the camera, a faint smile on his face. Howon jerked his thumb towards himself, stuttering, “S-sorry, ummm, that’s my name. I’m uhhhh Lee Howon.” He held his hand close to his face and flashed a peace sign while he smiled, displaying his canine teeth, one of his many charming points. There’s a booming laugh from behind the tripod and Howon glares at his friend before plastering on a smile again. “I’m twenty-one years old and I absolutely love music.” Suddenly, his lips set into a firm line, eyes furrowed in the process. “Weird… Have you ever felt like you’ve done or said something once before? I’m feeling like that right now, but I don’t think I’ve done this before. Deja-vu’s a strange feeling.” Howon shook his head, black hair tussling from side to side. He ran his hands through his locks, fixing what he messed up by shaking his head. “I just came back from Los Angeles because I was broadening my experiences in singing and dancing. I’m from Busan though, so going to Seoul is definitely a stretch for me. I’m nervous, but also excited because who knows what’s in store, right? Oh right, I usually go by the nickname of Hoya, like the flower, because a friend called me that once and since then, it’s just stuck with me. To bloom my way into stardom is what I want.” He flashed a grin at the camera, cheesing quite hard. He deadpanned right after, however, hands folded across his lap. “Please don’t take that part too seriously. It’s so corny, I’m sorry!”

→ ”I’m not entirely sure what I want.” Sheepishly, Howon rubbed his nape, shrugging his shoulders as well. “I’m in this group with my friends called Up Tempo and we do covers and whatnot, so I really enjoy music a lot. Like a whole lot.” He scratched at his cheek with his index finger and shrugged his shoulders. “No clue what I wanna do, so I guess sing, rap, and dance? I could technically try it all, since it seems fun and doable.” Howon paused, mouth slightly hung open. “Now I’m really having a bad case of deja-vu.” He laughed it off and stroked his chin. “I’ll be general in that case. Music. Something… with music. That’s what I’d like.” Nodding his head, he grinned at his own answer, content with himself.
