Recently, one netizen posted various gifs and clips of the idol member splitting an apple into two without even a frown or change in facial expression. What is more impressive is that Jongho can break the firm fruit while singing and keeping a steady voice.
It was also revealed that Jongho's grip force is around 89.6 kg (198 lbs), while ordinary men are only able to have a grip force of 40~60 kgs (88 - 132 lbs). Jongho was also often seen in various shows breaking different fruits such as melons, pears, and even watermelons with his bare hands.
Korean netizens were impressed by Jongho's massive hand strength that can easily break any fruit with his bare hands. They commented, "Omg, it looks so easy for him," "I think he can break even coconuts," "This is so impressive," "At first, I thought they had cut the apple with a knife already, but he's just breaking them bare hands," "It looks so easy that it looks like Jongho is just ripping the apple not breaking it apart, lol," "He's grip force is 89...almost 90," "And he's the youngest of the group," and "Wow, I have a grip force of 10kg lol and my friend is 40kg."
