Meet the Charismatic and Handsome Idol Hwall or Hyunjun Hur

When a K-pop group makes a debut, lots of fans hope to see them together forever until the end. However, the reality is not always like that. Sometimes, one or two members have to leave the group due to various reasons. Although this seems like a sensitive issue, there are a lot of K-pop groups that have a member or two leave.

But still, it doesn’t mean that the fans stop supporting the idol. For example, Jessica Jung who left SNSD still received support from fans for her solo projects. If the idols who leave their groups want to continue their dream, fans are ready to support whatever happens.

Before Hwall made an appearance in public, he was just a little boy from Busan. He was just like a typical Busan man who used Busan dialect daily. That’s why even after he debuted and moved to Seoul, he couldn’t get rid of his dialect. However, fans like him for who he is, so he didn’t have to use another way of speaking.

Hwall was born with the name Hyunjun Hur. He was born on March 9, 2000, in Busan, South Korea. He spent his childhood there along with his parents and younger sister. He also attended the schools there until he was in high school. Hwall went to a Busan Arts High School before he moved to Seoul.

As a child, Hwall was interested in music and dancing. He also had a dream to be an entertainer when he was young. But, he thought that maybe it was only a childhood dream who would soon disappear. So, instead of working hard to pursue that dream, Hwall just focused on studying.

Hwall moved to the Philippines when he was in the fifth grade. He lived there for around four years. Thanks to this experience, his English skills improved a lot. Hwall might have thought that he would lead a normal life after he focused on studying. But, things changed when he went back to Korea.

Hwall watched one of the most popular K-pop boy groups at the time, BTS. After watching their performance, there was something about them that made him want to learn more about dancing and singing. It happened when he was in middle school. The teenager Hwall then set his dream up again- he wanted to be a K-pop singer.

He learned to dance and attended a dance studio in his hometown. The dance studio that he attended was the same as Jimin from BTS. That’s also one of the reasons why Hwall had BTS as his role model.
