WINNER members revealed their fondness for Nam Taehyun, who left the group.
During the interview on the 4th, WINNER honestly talked about many different things concerning Nam Taehyun leaving the group.
Last year, it was announced that WINNER will halt all group activities for an indefinite amount of time due to Nam Taehyun’s health problems. Nam Taehyun left YG Entertainment in November to focus on getting treatment.
Kang Seungyoon confessed, “I always feel Taehyun’s empty spot. We live in a dorm together and when he moved out, I felt his vacancy most deeply at the time.”
Kang Seungyoon also added, “When we choreograph a dance, they say that the formations are most perfect when there is an odd number of people but because we became an even number of members, we struggled a bit. Even when we record a song, because Nam Taehyun was the main vocalist, his vacancy was felt. Fortunately, Jinwoo-hyung has covered for him really well.”
Lee Seunghoon confessed, “I still dream about Nam Taehyun,” and surprised everyone. He continued, “Whenever I dream, WINNER is still 5 members. I think that my unconscious still thinks that we’re still 5 members. It can’t be helped.”
Kang Seungyoon stated, “We were trainees together for a very long time. On top of that, we became WINNER thanks to our fans who voted for the five of us so we have a history. There will always be a part of our hearts that will feel that void. I think that’s why all of us miss him.”
