Everything You Need to Know About K-Pop Supergroup CRAVITY

If you love K-pop music, CRAVITY is one of the top groups that should be on your radar.

Though they only debuted this year, the band has already amassed numbers of fans worldwide, and you only have to hear one of their songs (or watch one of their gorgeously choreographed music videos) to understand why.

We don't know about you, but for us, half the fun of discovering a new group is getting to know everything about its members. CRAVITY has nine, and we were more than thrilled when we got to ask them a bunch of questions to learn what they're really about.

1. Serim played soccer when he was a kid, and also took up track and field, as well as boxing, professionally.

"I've won a lot of prizes from many competitions and I think I'm fairly confident in terms of any sports."

-Serim Park

2. When Allen feels stressed, he turns to one of his favorite treats.

"Eating extra crispy and sweet cereal with fresh milk before bedtime is my own way to relieve the tension and stress that I got from the tough day."

-Allen Ma

3. Jungmo is a massive BTS fan who has collected a ton of their albums and merch.

4. Woobin considers himself a bit of a perfectionist.

"I tend to seek perfection in the things that I like or like to do. For me now, dancing and singing would be the only things that I am super obsessed with."

-Woobin Seo

5. Wanjin loves to try to crack up his bandmates with puns and dad jokes.

"It's quite fun to watch the members' terrified, tedious expressions against my jokes, and sometimes I get proud of myself whenever they laugh at my jokes."

-Wanjin Ham

6. Minhee's go-to snack is a ramen-style treat flavored after the South Korean instant noodle brand Chapagetti.

"I've been into it lately but noticed that I can't stop thinking of it."
-Minhee Kang

7. Hyeongjun says people are always asking him to speak in his regional Seoul dialect and do the cutesy aegyo gesture for them.
8. Taeyoung's favorite songs of all time are "Echo (Let Go)" by Breathe Carolina featuring IZII and "Roses" by The Chainsmokers.
9. The last celebrity Seongmin got starstruck over was South Korean singer-songwriter Yerin Baek.

"She has such a beautiful voice and tone. I think her songs are the very first songs that truly consoled me.
"

-Seongmin Ahn

10. Serim considers the time travel rom-com About Time to be his favorite film.

11. Allen's favorite day of the year is Christmas Eve, and he's a huge fan of the entire month of December.
12. If Woobin could pick anyone to play him in a movie, it'd be actor Lee Dong-hwi.

"He has this whimsical charm that is very unique to him and I think he would be the one who can express me."

-Woobin Seo

13. Wonjin's favorite concert ever was a MONSTA X show.

"The most memorable performances were "Triple Rhythm" and "Kang Baek-ho." I totally fell in love with JOOHEON on the stage and became so respectful. It was also very impressive to see MONSTA X sympathizing with their fans, playing around and singing along with them."

-Wonjin Ham

14. Minhee's favorite superhero is Thor.

15. Hyeongjun usually relates good luck to the weather.

"I feel that things will work out well if the weather is bright and clear. It feels like good weather will bring lots of good things, and if the weather is bad, I try to bump up my condition to get rid of anxious feelings."
-Hyeongjun Song

16. Seongmin would love to travel back to the '70s to experience what it was like living during his parents' generation.
17. The entire band believes that teamwork, a unique bond and their strong consideration for each other are what make them different from any band out there.

"It's been a long time since we've known each other and now we are like a legit family. Our teamwork, the fun and harmonious atmosphere we create while spending time practicing and playing makes CRAVITY extraordinary. We always try to build a good relationship between ourselves, trying to be second-self to each other. For example, we always get together after we finish our daily schedule, spend time talking about our activities and the future. And this doesn't have to be serious all the time because throwing jokes and playing games together makes us more bonded.
-Wonjin Ham
