Woozi grew up by doing music; as a child, he played classical music often and learned how to play the clarinet and a few band instruments.
But, his confidence in his vocal abilities was always low, that he wouldn’t believe people when they told him that he’s a good singer.
When Woozi passed his audition at Pledis Entertainment, he started feeling a lot of gratitude for getting such a chance; he trained hard every single day until he debuted, as he did back in his childhood, when he played classical music.
He moved to Seoul for the purpose of training, but he also entered the Hanlim Multi Arts high school, which he finished in 2015; his parents showed him support and sent love as much as they could, which is what made Woozi so strong in the end.
Woozi went to primary school in Busan, and he was trained in classical music, clarinet and band instruments prior to entering high school.
He entered the Pledis Entertainment auditions and passed, which caused his move to Seoul.
After becoming a trainee, Woozi also entered the Hanlim Multi Arts high school, which he graduated from in 2015.
Woozi did his high school exams and trained at the same time, which must have been tough for him; that is why he is considered as one of the hardest working idols.
Woozi’s family consists of his parents and his older brother.
While growing up, he didn’t know any girls, or had friends that were girls; that’s why Woozy is only comfortable around guys, as he can become very shy when talking to girls or trying to befriend them.
Not much is known about his family, they’re not famous for anything other than, now, being Woozi’s family members!
Career & Bio
Lee Ji Hoon, more known as Woozi, is the leader of the Vocal Unit of SEVENTEEN.
Despite being the leader of the vocalists, he was meant to be a starting member of the Performance unit first; Woozi has great natural talent for dancing, but his vocals seem to be his main attribute.
Not only is Woozi a great dancer and a great singer, but he has a pretty good rapping skill and admires people such as Chris Brown.
When Woozi was young, he was classically trained in clarinet and band instruments, but he never tried singing.
After a few friends convinced Woozi to start singing, he realized that his potential can be accomplished through many things.
People who know Woozi for some time now, know that he is the most hardworking member of SEVENTEEN; he’d practice day in and day out for the first 3 years of his trainee days.
One more important thing needs to be added about Woozi – he is the main songwriter of SEVENTEEN; he wrote all of the songs in the SEVENTEEN Project, as well as all the songs in the two mini albums by SEVENTEEN.
Woozi is known by many nicknames – Tofu, Soft Food, and sometimes, because he’s very serious, others call him ‘Documentary’; but no one can deny that he is a super cool guy most of the time, as what he does best is picking himself, and others, up from a slumber and a negative period.
