On the December 6 airing of MBC's 'Radio Star', Hoya revealed, "During my INFINITE days, I was often asked about my ideal type whenever on a radio show. Those who make mistakes name a girl group member or an actress and fans tend to get hurt."
He continued, "So in such cases, many name iconic figures such as Fin.K.L. I felt like I was lying to myself."
Now no longer an idol singer but an actor, Hoya honestly opened up about his ideal type and said, "Kim Yuna with no double eyelids is my ideal type."
