Ricky held a 'V' broadcast on August 23, where he talked about the upcoming variety show 'We're Also National Athletes'. 'Produce 101's Takada Kenta, who is well-known to be a die-hard Ricky fan, is also a member on the show, so fans asked him if he and Kenta had become close.
Ricky said, "We've gotten a lot closer. Kenta was born in January, so he's actually a hyung. I'm going to be calling him hyung."
Congratulations to Kenta for achieving what's basically fanboy (and fangirl) goals! Hopefully, we'll see the pair together often from now on.
