Man Crush Mondays: Kang Daniel

Name: Kang Daniel

Birth Date: December 10, 1996

Origin: Busan, South Korea

Group: Wanna One

Position: Centre, Sub rapper

Entertainment Company: MMO Entertainment / YMC Entertainment

Daniel participated in the survival competition show, “Produce 101 Season 2” as a trainee from MMO Entertainment. Daniel was ranked first in the show and received a total of 1, 578, 837 votes from the Nation’s Producers (source: Kprofiles). He was awarded the centre position of Wanna One and made his official debut with Energetic on August 7, 2017.

Daniel was one of my favourite contestants from the second season of “Produce 101”. I was overly elated when he won the show. He deserved that top spot! He is a great dancer and was one of the best performers on the show. He knew how to control the stage (thigh slide dance, anybody?).

I am a bit disappointed that I did not see that much of him in Wanna One’s debut music videos for “Energetic” and “Burn It Up”. He is supposed to be the centre of the group, however, there were other members that got a lot more screen time than him.

As disappointed as I am, I do not know if I would go to great lengths to sue YMC Entertainment like his fans did. This was the same case with Somi and I.O.I last year. Both Somi and the group did well despite this, so I am not worried.

I am looking forward to Wanna One’s future comebacks and I hope to see a lot more of Daniel!

PS: He has visuals for days, as seen in the slideshow below.
