Relationships and girlfriend
Wonpil hasn’t commented on any girls he might have dated since he debuted with DAY6, and this is one of the reasons why many of his fans believe that Wonpil might be gay. However, he has talked about the type of girls he likes, that she has to know what she wants in life, and has to be brave enough to go in pursuit of it. His girlfriend would have to be either cute or sexy (or both) and should be taller than him, which shouldn’t be that hard as Wonpil is the shortest member of DAY6.
Some of his fans have claimed to have seen Wonpil spending time with an unknown girl whom he allegedly met during one of DAY6’s live performances, and according to these rumors, the two dated for several months in 2019 before people stopped seeing them together.
As of July 2020, Wonpil is single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and interests
Wonpil’s main hobby is collecting action figures – he has over 100 of them, and is also interested in collecting a variety of other things.
He is keen on cooking and has tried it many times, but has admitted that he is not very good at it.
He is also keen on using Musical Instrumental Digital Interface also known as MIDI.
Wonpil is a huge lover of travelling, and his dream travel destination has been Iceland in Europe, ever since he saw the pictures which his friend from DAY6, Jae took while he was there.
