    Let's get to know him a little better:

    • His real name is Sohn Youngjae. Eric is his English name, that his mom chose for him (after Shinhwa's Eric), when they moved to Los Angeles, in 2010, when he was 10 years old. He grew up there until freshman year of High School, when he got back to Korea. His plan was to graduate college in U.S. and became a baseball player for major leagues. He says that when Exo's Growl came out, his sister showed him the video and was very impressed by it. So he decided to go to dance lesson with his sister, because he decided to be a kpop star. His plan was to take dance lessons for 6 months and later try auditioning. But after three days of dance lessons, he coincidentally got a call from LOEN, for a global audition, because there was a cordinator, that was friends with his mom and adviced his mom for Eric to audition. He tried auditioning, even though he didn't know how to dance, sing or rap, but he made it.
    • He later became really good dancer (see his fancams!) and is the lead dancer and lead rapper of the group.
    • He was actually very good student. He can also solve a rubik's cube (he went to competition for it in school).
    • His mom lives in L.A., his older sister studies in New York and his dad lives in Korea.
    • He likes cleaning and is very neat.
    • Eric says, that people's impression of him would probably be, that he talks a lot, is full of energy, he's loud and mischievous boy, that doesn't listen to others well. He says that that's all correct, but that he hopes, people know, this is not everything there is about him. He's a very bright person, but not all the time.
    • What he would like for people to know about him is, that he's also very sensitive. He thinks and worry too much, but people tell him, that more than half of his worries are unnecessary. He's trying to stick more with the saying 'go with the flow'.
    • He's very emotional and can cry very easily.
    • He's more interested in others than in himself. He's not a shy person and don't have trouble getting along with new people. He's curious about new people and what their perspectives are, what kind of person they are and if they have any similarities with him. He's interested in other people, but when they are not interested back in him, he feels sad about it. Even though he doesn't ask for an attention, he feels bad if they don't show him the same amount of attention as what he gave them.
    • Eric says there are too many skilled people in the world. He says, he's not outstanding or excellent among them, but he's heading towards that direction, he has the potential and that's his strenght.
    • He says that he doesn't feel like maknae, because all the members treat him as a same-age friend, and don't make him do things, like it's usual for maknae.

  • OMG, so did he decide becoming an idol after seeing an EXO song? How cute :peperain:


    I love his hairstyles, especially in The Stealer and Reveal eras. They should've became trends :peperain:

    Yes, he still loves Exo, real fanboy, he talked about it in podcast with Eric Nam. Before he even moved to LA he liked Shinee and is the biggest Taemin fanboy still (he even had him as phone background) :D

    I love his Reveal hair above anything!


    i can't believe Eric the maknae got all the sexy song in that relay dance, that video lives in my head rent free :pepe-flirt:

    Hahha i know, it looks intentional that he got those parts, so i had to include this video :D

  • YES and you know what I used to think Eric might just be a childish boy but no.

    After knowing him better and better, he's polite, sensitive and mature minded.

    Sometimes it just takes time to know a person a little bit better. <3

    So true! Maturity is such a complex concept, it can mean a lot of things. I think being responsible, respectful, polite, able to understand other's people perspectives, are the characteristics that make someone mature. Being able to have fun, to be playful and immature at some moments, doesn't say much about person's overall maturity.

    Like you said', Eric can be very mature minded, has a lot of thoughts, always tries to understand others and likes to compliment them. His Gen Z interview and Eric Nam's podcast show a lot of his both sides, mature and playful/energetic one.

  • This warms my EXO-L heart. I'm glad he was able to make it! :borahae:

    Right?

    Because of EXO we got Eric from The Boyz!


    He even sent them a message in podcast with Eric Nam :D

  • I just saw you are also a Legend! All exols seem to be Legends :pepe-sad: It hurts seeing your titles </3

    I'm working my way up to the top. I have to work harder, since i still have long way to go :D

    Thanks! It just means I talk a lot. Or just drop a judgmental pepe and a gif of me leaving the room a lot. :pepe-hehe:

  • Fun fact: I think I saw Eric in LA before he became a trainee and I’m only saying this cause I have a picture of myself with some friends on a trip for French class that was in this theater somewhere in LA and sitting in the background was this kid who looks eerily like him. I was fairly sure it was him until i recently i started getting into another group and found one of the younger members look a little bit like Eric so now i’m not so sure. Or maybe it’s just some random guy in LA hahahaha

    Woow really? Haha little Eric, if he looks mischievous it's him! :D

  • Woow really? Haha little Eric, if he looks mischievous it's him! :D

    Haha might be him, might not be but I like to consider it as one of my few celebrity sightings despite him not being a celebrity at the time :D the only other times were when 1) I’m pretty sure I was in a kbbq place with a boy group in the next table, they had colorful hairs and a bunch of cameras but I was not into kpop at the time so I didn’t know who they were, 2) I saw Kobe Bryant at a red light when I was crossing the street, and 3) I saw the Kardashians at a gas station near my University :D

    Let's say it was him :D


    Oh interesting, i wonder who that boygroup was! If they had colored hair it must be some kpop bg!


    Whoah, you saw a lot of very famous people haha, even i wouldn't miss the Kardashians and Kobe and i don't know much celebrities :D
