SM Entertainment has begun to introduce us to the newest members of their SMTOWN family: Xiaojun, Hendery, and Yangyang!
The trio are the latest additions to SMROOKIES, which exists to showcase the talents of SM Entertainment trainees before they officially debut.
Xiaojun, Hendery, and Yangyang were first introduced through their portraits, which were uploaded onto SM’s official pages in July. Their announcements caused a stir within fans, many of whom anticipate that they will be joining the eventual lineup of NCT‘s Chinese unit.
The SMROOKIES page has since been taken over by the three, revealing bits and pieces of their identities to anticipating fans. One such “reveal” are self-introductory drawings and handwritten messages from the boys themselves.
Xiaojun, Yangyang, and Hendery have also uploaded photos of themselves as a more personal introduction of themselves. Hendery and Xiaojun‘s took place at the aquarium, while Yangyang‘s takes place in Germany.
Yangyang playfully asks, “Where am I?” and writes that he’s returned to Germany and visited a place that he used to like going while taking walks.
From the same trip, Hendery writes, “Hello everyone! Long time no see!” and explains that if you have time, you should spend some time with your friends!
This message from Xiaojun states that everyday is a day to work hard and that he was able to enjoy free time by going to the aquarium, where he hasn’t had a chance to enjoy since he was in elementary school.
From the same aquarium trip, Yangyang is depicted with stuffed animals at the aquarium, as well as viewing the exhibits. He writes that the aquarium was super interesting with Xiaojun and Hendery.
SM Entertainment then released an SMROOKIES ‘Re-Born’ series, each episode featuring one of the three in brief interviews.
