There are various sides to DAY6’s Wonpil that make My Days love him even more. On the special occasion of his birthday, we take a look into various aspects of Kim Wonpil:
His kind and empathetic side
Wonpil has the biggest heart and he tries to give as much love as he can to people around him. There are numerous instances we got to see a glimpse of Wonpil’s compassion.
One of the instances was when during DAY6’s fansign a fan was crying. After seeing the fan’s tears, Wonpil could not hold his tears and he too, started crying.

Another instance was during one of DAY6’s fan meeting when Jae was too sick to perform. But he still attended the fan meeting and broke down into tears as he was giving. Seeing his older member in pain, Wonpil also started crying.
Jae was holding his tears but then he made eye contact with Wonpil and just cried aww??
?Why are you cryingggg?
And our leader already crying at the back??? *showers day6 with lots of tight hugs* pic.twitter.com/mZodlsz2xF

As much as he loves DAY6 and My Days, Wonpil also loves his family a lot. He said that he wanted to go a variety show called Home Town Report because that is his grandfather’s favorite show.
When his dream of appearing on the show got fulfilled, he spoke about his grandfather on the show. Wonpil said that he still misses his grandfather and that he has been a big part of his childhood.
?Wonpil here, is crying rn bc he said he wanted to see you and your hold hands.
??Where do you live?
?At Incheon. Grandpa… do you not miss grandma?
??You don't have a grandpa?
?He has but he passed away.pic.twitter.com/yuIMaepybp

In one of the interviews, he had also mentioned his grandmother and speaks fondly of her.
"Wonpil is so caring because he was raised by such a wonderful person."
We also need to thank Wonpil's grandmother for raising him well and teaching him all the good qualities he now has. It really contributed a lot to his attitude towards other people.pic.twitter.com/h0uCGdJCmI

Though the older members, Jae and Sungjin may cringe at Wonpil’s aegyo, My Days absolutely love it.
In one of the episodes of After School Club, he showed his charms as he does his own rendition of Seenroot’s “Oppaya” as he converts it to his “nunaya”.

Wonpil says that he does aegyo just to irritate his members and he does not have any aegyo. But contrary to his statement, the fluff ball radiates aegyo quite naturally.
"I'm not really cute!! I'm really telling you I'm not cute, but people tell me to act cute. But I really have no aegyo."- Kim Wonpil

His cool persona
As a passion artist, Wonpil shows his coolest side while he is performing.

In one of DAY6’s performances, Wonpil’s keyboard stand kept falling down. Wonpil had to bend his knees and kept going on with the performance. This also shows Wonpil’s dedication.
i think the keyboard stand wasnt properly set up that's why it was a verge of breaking down & kept getting lower til the end LMFAO WONPIL ㅋㅋ pic.twitter.com/Iw5o7MJJ3i

Wonpil is known in the music industry for his pleasant voice and musical talents. But this multi-talented artist can also be a little clumsy sometimes which just makes him look more adorable.
DAY6 has a large number of songs. The only problem with this is that remembering lyrics becomes even more difficult. There has been some moments where Wonpil forgot the lyrics of their songs. Probably, this is the only clumsy side the singer has, otherwise he is perfect.
-Sings a song called "Don't Forget"
-Forgets some of the lyrics ???

His mischievous side
Although he is the sweetest boy, Wonpil loves mischiefs and he especially loves teasing his members especially Jae and Sungjin. Like how he does aegyo to irritate them, he also looks for various other means.
Wonpil often teasingly calls Jae pitiful. He even created a game called Park Jaehyung game, which is about saying pitiful things about oneself.
?: Do you want to play the Park Jaehyung game?
?: Huh? Park Jaehyung game?
?: Yea. Let’s take turns saying what’s pitiful about each other.
KIM WONPIL HAHAHHAHAHAHA pic.twitter.com/ZWeRKpjTtB

Another such incident was during DAY6’s Jeju trip, the members had to write letters to each other. As Jae was reading out his letter, Wonpil playfully started teasing him which led to Jae sulking and not wanting to read the letter anymore.

Wonpil also loves bothering Sungjin who used to be his roommate when DAY6 members were sharing rooms. Since Sungjin likes to keep his bed prim and proper, Wonpil is determined to lie on his bed someday and has even mentioned it couple of times.
Wonpil says he is going to wait for one day when Sungjin is not there to sleep on his bed ?

Wonpil shhshsj but exactly why are you so determined to lie on sungjin's bed? Besides the fact he doesn't allow it so it makes you want to do it more pic.twitter.com/Hzejo2VTVC

Wonpil being supportive
Wonpil is the biggest supporter of his DAY6 members. He would always genuinely shower them with praises and compliments.
When Jae released his solo track “Rose”, Wonpil hyped it and also played it during his pilLayList on VLIVE.

Some legendary Kim Wonpil things
Asides from the various aspects of Kim Wonpil’s lovable personality, there are times when he completely surprises. Therefore, these moments will go down in history as some of the most iconic Kim Wonpil moments and they are as follows:
The seaweed soup incident
As a sweet gesture to celebrate Jae’s birthday, Wonpil decided to make him a seaweed soup. Not having much experience in cooking, he also called his mother to get the recipe right.
However, the result was a very salty soup and a very terrified My Days. The singer kept adding more soy sauce and salt to the soup which led to even Sungjin watching him with judgemental eyes.
NO MORE KIM WONPIL COOKING OR IT WILL BE DISASTER pic.twitter.com/Q9cfoMgMQ9

The historic Pink Sweater
Wonpil’s pink sweater has quite a long history. Though he loved the sweater, Jae hated it. So much was Jae’s dislike for the pink sweater that Jae even shoved and stepped on it during their diss battle.
REMEMBER WHEN DAY6 HAD A DISS RAP BATTLE & JAE WAS GOING THROUGH IT THAT HE TOOK THE PINK SWEATER & SHOVED IT DOWN THE FLOOR JUST TO STEP ON IT IN FRONT OF WONPIL LMAOO pic.twitter.com/48AGZlffol

Pink sweater also has its various other moments- such as Dowoon wearing the sweater and performing “Gashina”.

Ps . His face is as pink as the pink knit he’s wearing ?? pic.twitter.com/PRGhJowPVx

Or, Dowoon creating an emotional song dedicated to the Pink knit.

So much was the trauma that Wonpil even said that he wants to erase the memory of the sweater. But the pink sweater was never going to leave Wonpil. Now, it is even a part of DAY6’s merchandise.
he wanted to delete the memory of him buying and wearing that pink sweater but jype just made even more popular?♀️ poor wonpil hahhahapic.twitter.com/oHDNr3brrR

That one episode in ASC
DAY6’s appearances in ASC has always been entertaining and fun to watch. But, there is one particular episode that will be forever etched in the minds of My Days because of Kim Wonpil.
On that particular episode, the singer was super chaotic. Jae looked like he was about to ascend to heaven, while Jimin looked shocked and viewers were just rolling out of laughter.
Regardless, we loved seeing this unexpected side of Kim Wonpil.
Y'all remember that asc ep where wonpil was.. Going crazy fkdjej seriously idk what they fed him that day but he was wildin lmao ? pic.twitter.com/83rewt1Z4B
