Samuel interviewed rapper-producer Brave Brothers of Brave Entertainment, a South Korean music agency with which the 16-year-old star signed in 2015.

“What did you first think of me when we first met?” was the first question Samuel threw at Brave Brothers, or “Yong Hyung” as he is more commonly called.

“A kid with a ton of swag. He’s very young but he’s got swag,” Brave Brothers told the audience.

He was so struck by then-13-year-old Samuel that their first encounter left a lasting impression on the veteran music producer. “He was wearing a Jordan hat when we first met, I believe. Is that right?” he asked Samuel, recalling their meeting.

“I just knew Samuel had to become a performer the moment I saw him,” he said, adding, “that’s why I cast him.”

What’s inside Apink Naeun’s portable mini fridge?

Apink’s Naeun makes sure she’s never short on snacks, which is why she always carries a portable mini fridge with her.

What are some of her staple snack choices? The 24-year-old showed her fans what’s inside her fridge on Naver’s V Live on Tuesday.

First, she had a plastic container full of kimbap, or rice rolled in dried seaweed sheets.

“Here I’ve got some milkshake,” she said, holding out a bottle. “You can have this one on the go.”

“And then I’ve got water jelly, macaroons and chocolate milk for when I’m low on sugar,” the Apink star said.

She also had healthier options like cherries and cherry tomatoes.

It looks like Naeun is well-prepared for all kinds of cravings.
