So as you guys know... SM Rookies is a very popular group of boys in the kpop scene. NCT U and newly debuting sub group, NCT 127, has members from SM Rookies.
Well, between my friends, a certain guy from SM Rookies has become a hot topic. Johnny. Sadly, SM hasn't debuted him yet but we're all hoping for the right time. Anyways, I was showing my sister a video of the SR15B 0701 dance practice and she told me, "You know, that guy in the white shirt used to go to our school..."
AND I LITERALLY FREAKED OUT.
He was a "sunbae" as you would call it (just an older school mate) to my sister but her friend F (I won't say her full name) was close friends with Johnny. I guess he was in a specific friend group since most of my friends' older brothers knew him as well. I can't say the name of my school, but it's in the suburbs - about a 30 minute drive from Chicago.
How am I just finding out about this...
But really, I can't believe this guy who trained with EXO and is now working hard to pursue his happiness walked in the same halls as I do... I can't imagine how SOPA students feel - having so many idols go to school there.
Sometimes you really forget that idols are humans who all lived normal lives as well.
Let's all support NCT U & 127 and any future groups SM will debut! Hwaiting! ♡
