Hanbin is kind hearted, focused, determined, soft and sweet. He can be quite sensitive and fragile and has a tendency to over work himself. He is the the type of person that puts others before himself without second thought especially when it comes to his family and former members. His selflessness is almost dangerous to his own well being at times. When working, he has been dubbed as Tiger Bin. He is fierce and stern and sometimes a little too harsh though he has been working to improve himself in that department.
Korean, Japanese, learning English.

Losing everything. Being broken again. Failing.
