Who is it?

Guess WHO.....

VERNON!!

He is young but I feel like he is an awesome rapper. He is one of the rappers in the boy group Seventeen. Even though this group has so many memebers you can't help but to notice Vernon. He has good looks, but his rapping skills will leave an impression on you. Looks can deceive. This pretty boy can lay down some bars.

CAN U FIND VERNON?

Interesting Facts

He’s from New York but moved to Korea when he was 5 years old, this could be why Vernon is very bilingual and know about American culture. He has a little sister named Sofia who he adores! His favorite rappers are Drake, T.I, J.Cole and Kendrick Lamar, and Nicki Minaj. You can see their influence on his rapping style. His favorite Seasons are Summer and Fall. He is a cat person! Meow! He likes the actors Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio & Johnny Depp. This is cool since he is known to be the reincarnation of DiCaprio. He like plums. Even though he is technically American he says living in Korea is more comfortable for him. He loves reading and would rather read than watch a movie. I can understand that since he seems to be a deep thinking. Most rappers love literature anyway. FOR MORE INFORMATION CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW... Source

Vernon has been said too look like the young Leonardo DiCaprio. DO YOU AGREE?
His group members say he's very shy. However, you couldn't tell by his performances. This is him performing his solo track "LOTTO" live. He is truly a boss in the making!

HEY! Leo DiCaprio's twin!!! 😂😂 Sorry that's how I first remembered him. So I didn't know he was born in New York!! He's the 3rd kpop idol that I know of who was born in the states! The other 2 are in U-Kiss 😘 He's a cute kid! 😆

His mother is American and father is Korean if I remember right and he has lived there since he was 5 so of course it'll be more comfortable for him! I'm just glad he is happier now. He used to get so much shtick for being Korean-American and they'd call him horrible names. It was even an issue when they held those big games for kpop groups (ISAC) when he was placed in the International team instead of the Korean team and it was just a big messy mess. Vernon is an excellent rapper though and is verrry shy. I think it's more awkward, not knowing what to say, than really shy. He just kind of nods his head and agrees. :P
