Jinyoung has his own room in the dorm; the other members say that he’s the messiest. Of all of the members, he takes the longest when getting ready, because he likes to do everything slowly and with ease. He calls himself Got7’s king of aegyo, although other members would choose BamBam. He’s said to be the member parents would most approve of.
