As one of the contestants, Sunoo stood out due to his bright personality and charming visual. Even though his training period was short, only 10 months, his talent was exceptional.
In term of visual, Sunoo has the face of a fox due to his sharp eyes, pure white skin, angled chin, sharp nose and bright red lips. Off the stage, he was smiling all the time but on the stage he transformed into sexy and charismatic persona. He became friends with most of the contestants and was known as the atmosphere maker.
Throughout the program, Sunoo always ranked at no 1 position from global fans’ vote. He got the chance to debut not by global fan vote but by producer selection route. He thanked the producer and apologized for his lack of talent. He promised to work hard and trained hard with other members.

Sunoo joined Enhypen by producer selection. Other Enhypen members are Heesung, Jay, Jake, Sunghooh, Jungwon, and Niki. The meaning of the groups is to connect all the members and grow with each other.
Belift Lab released two long teaser videos to Enhypen’s official Youtube account in October 2020. The group finally made the long-awaited debut on November 2020. They released debut EP titled Border: Day One.

Enhypen’s Sunoo’s Focus Fancam
Sunoo has several kinds of attractive duality. On the stage, he is dark, mysterious and cool but off the stage he is cute, child-like and bright. Fans have divided opinions on whether he is masculine or feminine. It is like watching a woman dance in a man’s body. But all of them agree that he is versatile. He is not all about visual but he has a talent for singing and dancing. Even though he has limited screen time and few singing parts, fans love him whenever he performs on the stage.
When performing on the stage, Sunoo usually kept his expression minimum. He rarely shows any expression even a single smile. His face is very white and his lips are very red. Whether it was his concept, he always looks like a mysterious vampire. In Given-Taken choreography, Sunoo is usually positioned at the center of the formation. Sometimes, the cameraman confused Sunoo with Jungwon due to their similar appearance.
Enhypen’s Sunoo’s Dance Cover
Sunoo smiles a lot when he covers BTS’ Boy With Luv. Enhypen Sunoo’s dance moves are smooth, light, and efficient even though lacking power and energy. Due to his lanky frame, Sunoo is more comfortable with cute and simple moves rather than explosive and energetic moves. He is always a member with extra energy. When other members are resting, he continuously practices and warms his body. He has the least training period among Enhypen members, therefore, he always practices and improves his skill.
In most Enhypen practice videos, we rarely see Sunoo rest or take a break. He is like a long-lasting battery that has endless energy. Perhaps, he also memorized more choreography than other members. We can clearly see him dance smoothly and flawlessly according to the music when some members dance hesitantly. I don’t know whether he is so quick in memorizing all choreography or he practice so much that his body remembers all the moves. We can clearly see that other members were amazed by his dance moves.
