However, using bright-colored cheek pops is not the only thing new about Park Woo Jin. The rapper, well-known as a former member of Wanna One, is currently gearing up for his second debut as a member of AB6IX — short for “Absolute Six” —Brand New Music’s new boy group.

He’s nervous, Park Woo Jin told star1 in his interview, but, at the same time, he’s excited for AB6IX’s upcoming debut showcase happening on the same day as the EP’s release. According to him, he has been practicing endlessly in preparation for the showcase which will officially introduce the boy group to the public.
Moreover, he wanted to meet people’s expectations and to earn their acknowledgment for his dance and rap skills. “I want to tell more people about ‘Park Woo Jin’,” he said.
Aside from his upgraded dance and rap skills, the ABSIX member will also display his songwriting skills as he penned his rap lyrics in the boy group’s title track “Breathe”, a track co-composed by Lee Dae Hwi and co-written by Lim Young Min.
“I wrote the lyrics based on the frustrations I felt when I was alone in the practice room when my choreography was not working well. I want to show my ability as an improved rapper,” he explained regarding the rap lyrics.

The rapper also talked about Produce X 101 and gave his support to the trainees. He encourages them to never give up and work hard.
“My first ranking on the program was 72nd. I was desperate because of my low ranking. I am sure that there are frustrated trainees like me during that time, but do not give up. Not giving up is the way to grow, and steady efforts are the key to success,” he said.
