The 14-member boy group recently had an interview with MK Sports. One of the questions for them asked about the role model that made them dream of becoming a singer.
Eunaje first answered, "I admire Super Junior sunbaenim. We have a similar number of members, and I want us to learn how they've branded each of the members. I also hope to promote for a long time like Super Junior sunbaenim."
B.S. answered next, "Highlight sunbaenim is my role model. They shined brighter than anyone on stage. Also, it's good to see them stick together after their contract terminated with the former agency. I hope 14U also sticks together till the end."
Woojoo named SHINee as his role model, and commented, "They each have a color of their own and also a distinct charm when all together."
Youngwoong mentioned BTS and explained, "I think we have a lot to learn from BTS sunbaenim and they're like the textbook (of boy groups). They're good at rapping, dancing, making facial expressions and gestures. It's all cool. I also wish to become a sunbae that hoobaes consider as the 'textbook'."
Rio picked EXO and said, "Just like EXO sunbaenim, I want us to excel in both group and individual promotions. I want to become a singer that gives off a cool aura."
Doyool named Big Bang and said, "Big Bang sunbaenim make their music and promote. I also want to be an entertainer that promotes in various fields."
Last but not least, E.Sol and Dohyuk both chose Seventeen, and said, "We've become a fan of Seventeen sunbaenim. We were watching their stage on a music show and we were looking at them as big fans. All the artists gather on the stage at the end, and sunbaenims talked to us first. Sunbaenim also put his hand on my shoulder once and I was so touched that I almost cried."
