“Taeil takes care of Haechan and I because we’re the youngest members of the group,“ said Mark. "Instead of telling us what to do, he listens to us.”
When it comes to their American popular culture inspirations, Mark loves Justin Bieber while Haechan admires Michael Jackson. Tae Yong likes the girl group Fifth Harmony and Justin Timberlake and Jaehyun has been listening to Usher’s new album. Taeil, on the other hand, isn’t so much about American pop idols, preferring Stevie Wonder, whom he declared was "one of the greatest songwriters in the world.”
