ATEEZ‘s leader and captain Hongjoong is known not only for his natural charisma and energy on-stage, but also for his kind and giving heart.
He supports many different charities and organizations that help those in need, such as the Polished Man Campaign (which encourages everyone to take a stand and actively commit to helping end violence against children), the Black Lives Matter movement, and Dear Heart (which raises money for children with heart disease in Korea), to name a few.
On top of all of this, he’s always showing his support and encouragement towards ATEEZ’s fans, many of whom look up to him as a role model and someone to be inspired by.
Because of all these and many other admirable traits, it shouldn’t be too surprising that his future goals involve helping others as well!
In a recent fansign event, an ATINY asked Hongjoong what he wants to achieve in life as a person outside of ATEEZ. His answer was short and sweet, but very telling.

This isn’t the first time he has mentioned this dream, either. It seems like building a music school has been a passion of his for quite a while!

Because he has been given the opportunity to become a musical artist like he dreamed of since he was young, it’s clear that he wants to help others like himself achieve those dreams as well.
And given his motivation, hard work, and determination, we have little doubt that he could accomplish it!
