Wanna One Members Talk About Beer
Following their stint on Produce 101 season 2, the members of Wanna One shared some interesting information about themselves. During an interview, Hwang said that he craves cold beer whenever he feels that his voice is in a very good condition.
"There are some days when singing practice goes really well. On those days, I feel like my vocal skills would really improve if I drink a beer after practice," said Hwang.
Yoon said that he craved for a bottle of beer after he learned that he will be part of Wanna One. Ha said that he loves to drink beer whenever he feels hot because it is refreshing.
