  • Just his fan cam views tell his power on stage and skills in choreography. Hoshi is dance, dance is Hoshi.
  • When I saw Hoshi and Wonwoo at 1:43 I started to feel so bad for them because their choreo is powerful and difficult. However, they’re still able to perform so well, we need to let them know that they are absolutely amazing for the immense hard work in practice and when they perform, and they also need a break😥 we love you.
  • His performance is really amazing.
  • Seeing his sharp movements and expression while dancing is really satisfying. Kwon Hoshi the best!!!
