Park Jinwoo (박진우) or better known by his stage name Jinjin (진진), was chosen as ASTRO leader not because he’s the oldest member. His leadership quality is one of the reasons why AROHAs keep rooting for the group from their debut until now.

Hi. Thank you for that article but there is a mistake.
Jinjin is not the one with the longest years of trainee. He trained for 3 years like Sanha and Eunwoo. Moonbin trained for 7 years, Rocky for 6 years and MJ is the one with the shortest time, 2 years.
He is so cute 💜✌️
