Let’s check more further about Ha Sung-woon’s friendship with Wanna One members!
Ha Sung-woon with Yoon Jisung
was close since I was on ‘Produce 101 season 2,’ the interaction between Yoon Jisung and Ha Sung-woon began to be seen when they were both in the same team during the position evaluation round, where both of them entered the vocal team that performed their senior song in the previous season IOI was the song ‘Downpour.’
In this team, Yoon Jisung led the team well, and of course, also became a good leader for Wanna One.
in Wanna One’s forth V Live, ‘2017 Wanna One Teamwork-Building Championships,’ that’s their first V Live since they officially made a debut as Wanna One, they are required to choose a rope that will connect them with the members to play together. at this moment Ha Sung-woon is paired with their leader, Yoon Jisung. they then played where the game required Ha Sung-woon to put nail polish on Yoon Jisung’s nails. this is very adorable to look at.
in the behind the scenes clip for Wanna One’s fan meeting, they parodied the characters in the film ‘Frozen’. Ha Sung-woon became Elsa, and Yoon Jisung became his prince. on that clip the very funny thing is when Ha Sung-woon dressed elegantly like Elsa’s daughter in the film ‘Frozen’ but he acted macho like a man, he constantly joked with Jisung behaving macho, contrary to his appearance at that time that was feminine.
Ha Sung-woon with Hwang Minhyun
as well as Jisung, Ha Sung-woon also began to get close to Hwang Min-hyun since they both joined ‘produce 101 season 2’ and were both on the vocal team ‘Downpour’ during the evaluation position.
with an age gap that is only 1 year apart, making them both easier to be close. they are also known to have been in a dormitory.
on episode 156 of the jTBC’s ‘Knowing Brothers’ program, when it was Min-hyun’s turn to ask the question, Min-hyun revealed, “since we have many members, our manager bought the same toothbrush in a different color. to distinguish our toothbrush, he told Sung-woon that Sung-woon’s toothbrush is the red one, and mine’s the gray one, but a couple of days later, I went to the bathroom in the morning and my toothbrush was wet. I definitely let him know about the color of his toothbrush, so I think maybe sung-woon must’ve dropped and washed it. so I just used it. next day, it was wet again. so after used it, I went asked Sung-woon, “you haven’t used the gray one, have you? “and then Sung-woon answered,” Isn’t that mine? “Min-hyun then continued that he even used that toothbrush to cleaned his tongue and Sung-woon also does that.” the sum up, these to shared a toothbrush for 2 days.
On one of their v lives on January 12, 2019, Ha Sung-woon and Hwang Min-hyun did V Live together. both of them did v live to greet their fans, ‘wannable’. both preach some of their activities lately, they also rest well.
In this v live, they also had time to sing a piece of the song ‘Downpour’ and tell some of their experiences while still in ‘produce 101 season 2’. Min-hyun also confessed that from the start on the ‘produce 101 season 2’ event he was already very fond of Ha Sung-woon’s voice, he even wanted to vote for Ha Sung-woon if he had the opportunity to choose members during a group evaluation. but unfortunately, even though Min-hyun had the chance to choose members, Ha Sung-woon was chosen by Lee Dae-hwi first, so Min-hyun chose Kim Jae-hwan instead.
not only the song ‘Downpour’ they also sang a number of other songs, and also gave some recommendations for the songs they liked.
Ha Sung-woon with Ong Seong-woo
as ‘Produce 101 season 2 goes on,’ Ha Sung-woon and Ong Seung-woo became close after both getting class A on the individual evaluations that aired in the first episode and getting back to A during reevaluation after undergoing training. they both received the ‘Royal A’ since then because of their excellent singing and dancing.
In an interview before Ha Sung-woon and Ong Seung-woo went to the forest to follow the ‘Law of the Jungle,’ Ong Seung-woo admitted that he was a clumsy person, where he made many mistakes.
Ha Sung-woon and Ong Seung-woo even did diving training to prepare to go to the forest, they seemed to enjoy it very much, and even both of them eagerly danced their dance song, ‘Energetic’ in the water.
in one episode of ‘Law of the Jungle Sabah’ Ha Sung-woon and Ong Seung-woo were fishing to get something to eat.
at that time because they both were silent while fishing and the staff asked if there was a song from Wanna One that was suitable to describe their current condition. then Ha Sung-woon answered “There is a song. when a mosquito buzzes by your ear,” and then together with Ong Seung-woo sang their song entitled ‘Boomerang.’
and the first person who managed to get the fish first was Ong Seung-woo. while Ha Sung-woon kept losing his bait but didn’t get anything. when Ha Sung-woon felt he was getting something through his fishing rod, he felt excited at the time, but it turns out that he got only a tree branch and Ha Sung-woon felt disappointed.
