An older story about ASTRO has been belatedly making headlines for its interesting content. Back in December 2020, ASTRO members Rocky and Sanha held a V Live session for their fans where they discussed numerous different topics. A few specific stories that Rocky shared, however, has been receiving some heavy attention.
All of the ASTRO members, minus MJ are alumni of the famous Hanlim Arts High School, where numerous idols have either previously attended or still attend to this day. Rocky shared a few stories about having gone to the same high school as his fellow ASTRO members Cha Eunwoo and Moonbin, who are known to have experienced immense popularity.
Rocky talked about the difficulties of having to go to school with his popular group mates.
It was really hard. Whether we took the bus or the subway, it didn’t matter. I was always at least 1 meter (3 feet) away from them haha
Rocky then shared the ways he would “lure” Cha Eunwoo into a classroom so that his friends could meet the ASTRO member.
At the time, my friends would ask me if there was any way they could meet Dong Min (Cha Eunwoo’s birth name) sunbae. So I would say ‘Eunwoo hyung~ can you come to my class really quick?’
When Sanha called Rocky out on his “betrayal,” Rocky shared that at the time, he felt like he had no choice.
It’s because they would tell me that the only reason they went to school was to see Dongmin (Cha Eunwoo) sunbae once.
The ASTRO member continued with his story by sharing what the female Hanlim Arts High School students would do just to get a glimpse of Cha Eunwoo’s face.
At the time, all the female students would line up in the hallways and you could see just their faces all lined up in the window.
Rocky then shared a shocking story about how he always knew where Cha Eunwoo was — just because of the noise level.
During our rest times, I would know where Eunwoo hyung was based on the noise level. If you went towards the noise, Eunwoo hyung was there.
He concluded by revealing a hilarious story about Moonbin.
As for Bin hyung, I would go look for him in the classroom and he would be sleeping.
Netizens couldn’t believe the stories that Rocky was sharing about Cha Eunwoo and Moonbin. Many of them believed that the stories sounded like something straight out of a webtoon.
- “This really sounds like a webtoon story with the sleeping oppa hahaha.”
- “‘I would know where he (Cha Eunwoo) was based on the noise level.’ Hahaha that’s crazy.”
- “Wow…this webtoon story already started to take over my thoughts.”
- “Wow this really sounds like a f*cking web fiction story. Dongmin sunbae and the sleeping oppa? Are you sure this isn’t a webtoon?”
- “This is actually amazing.”
- “This is Korea’s high-teen.”
- “This sounds like a web series to begin with and after looking at their faces, it’s not childish at all but rather quite plausible hahaha.”
We have to agree with netizens on this one! With the three ASTRO members’ visuals in one school, it’s no wonder that these stories sound like they came straight out of a web fiction series.
