Most of his fans are in their 30s
After the end of the program on June 16th, the ‘Kang Daniel phenomenon’ supported by older women (noonas) got even hotter. In mid-May, the bond between the fans was strengthened through various events and games formed by several Kang Daniel fansites. They even made their star (Daniel) shine by donating under his name several times. Even through YouTube, videos of Kang Daniel are continuously showing up.
Kang Daniel was born on December 10, 1996 and had not yet reached 21 years old.
Among the comments by fans, the most impressive one was, “Daniel can’t change our lives, but we can change Daniel’s. Let’s make him debut and turn him into a superstar.” The point of the noona’s power is, “If we say we’ll do, we’ll do.” Before the last performance of PD101, Kang Daniel’s fans sent in support goods, and the goods themselves were different. It was visible how they are ‘sophisticated and luxurious noonas’ with discerning eyes in selecting electronic goods such as a MacBook, iPad, and GoPro camera in addition to popular accessories and fashionable clothes, unique shoes, and a luxurious carrier. The reason why Wanna One landed advertisement deals for cosmetic products, alcohol, school uniforms, and others items usually only top stars endorse is because the advertisers said they observed the buying power of the noona fans. Their fashion magazine was sold out, and Kang Daniel’s bromides were out of stock at each cosmetic shop, showing the prediction was becoming true.
So what is the reason fans go wild over Kang Daniel? His forte that everyone can agree with is ‘appearance, dance, personality’. With his 180cm tall height and fair skin, he’s born with a cute face that will remind you of a big dog, which has no room for criticism. Broad 60cm shoulders, chocolate abs, and slender and long limbs present magical proportions. Due to his ‘low laughter barrier’, he will brightly laugh with various expressions all the time. It’s impossible to block his fashion sense that properly utilizes accessories and hats.
If you are looking for a flaw in his appearance though, you can say it’s his slightly irregular teeth. Fans who found his two front teeth as bunny-like and cute said, “They are your natural beauty + purity + sophistication + baby look + sexiness not owned by anybody else! Take care of them,” and are loudly shouting, “We’re against [you] fixing your teeth!”
Kang Daniel’s charms as mentioned by fans can be summed up into ‘gap difference’. It means, “In the real world, he is a boundlessly kind and pure man, while on stage his energy is powerful.” Plus, due to his facial expressions that change every single day, a lot of fans say it’s like their first time meeting him every day and are saying, “I still don’t know Kang Daniel’s face,” “Wow, I’ve never seen someone with an amazing gap like Daniel in my whole life ㅜㅜ A freaking sexy wolf acting like a samoyed, a man like you who possesses cuteness and sexiness at the same time~♡,” “His face is like a baby’s, but the body screams oppa,” and “He’s like a baby, and other times he is a man. He also has that girlish side in him, and while he looks like a reliable older brother, he is also overflowing with oppa feels. Anyway, there’s no exit.” As it appears the same comments keep showing, Kang Daniel’s fans are giving him high marks on his various charms.
