Taehoon on being a Role Model and What He Wants to be Remembered as an Artist
When you meet TAN's lead dancer and sub-vocalist, Taehoon, it's hard not to fall in love with him. He's a natural charmer whose mere presence makes your heart pound and your knees weak. Taehoon's elegance and enthusiasm for dancing shine through with each move he makes, which only draws us in more, as well as his enchanting vocals, singing every lyric filled with emotion and passion that lures us into his world.
Although Taehoon seems to have a natural aptitude for being an idol, it is not as easy as it seems at first glance. Idols are not just someone who performs on stage showcasing one's skills and talents, but rather someone who inspires others and becomes a positive influence in their lives, and that is something Taehoon strives to achieve.
Now, he wants to use his voice, his smile, and his attitude to show everyone that he can do whatever he puts his mind to in becoming a role model for the youth—and that he'll keep doing it until he gets there! In this PARCINQ feature, Taehoon shares what he hopes to achieve in the future, his thoughts on their upcoming global promotions, and more.

Q. Your goal is to become someone’s role model. How do you think that goal has been?
Taehoon: I am still working hard to get closer to that goal.
Q. Tell us something you want to be remembered as an artist.
