Dawon has a bright personality. Among the members of SF9, he is known as the mood maker. When he speaks, he always livens up the mood. Fellow member, Hwiyoung said, “When the atmosphere feels bad, if Dawon says just a few words, it will get better in three seconds.” Take a look at how funny Dawon is!

Because of his cheerful character, all of the band members agree that Dawon is suitable for variety shows. At the Burning Sensation mini-album showcase, Dawon said, “I’ve dreamed of joining variety programs and tried hard to do well. After developing and monitoring my personal skills, it wasn’t easy and it was difficult, but it was fun.” His best impersonations include Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon, iKON’s BI, actor Jo In-sung, and Bruce Lee.

It is unique since there are not many lead vocalists in Korean groups who are also fun and playful. On the other hand, when it comes to singing, as expected from a lead vocalist, Dawon has a very clear and beautiful voice. Even though he is known to be playful, on the contrary, he looks charismatic when he sings and is able to deliver the message and mood of the songs with his expressions.

He also has a hard worker mindset and always tries to improve himself. In an interview with Korepo, he was asked how he wants to grow as a vocalist, to which he answered: “It feels like I haven’t shown you enough of my dancing and singing skills. So I want to practice harder and show you more of my charm.” Such a multi-talented and hardworking idol!

Dawon is also a very good dancer. Even though he is slow at memorizing choreography, but when he finally memorizes the move, he dances gracefully. Look at this focused cam of Dawon dancing!
