Q & A::
Q: Why do you have colors in front of your names?
A: The CEO gave them colors because:
Soohyuk – white – because he is so pale.
Jimin – black – because he is so tan.
Younghoo – yellow – because he is the youngest and needs to be fresh.
Chanhwee – pink – because when they debuted he wasn’t that popular so the CEO gave him this color to make him stand out and draw attention to him.
Jungbin – blue – because his music can be deep and broad.
