The8’s sentimental time


The8 Facts

- The meaning behind his stage name is that the number 8 is considered a lucky number in China and when the 8 is laid down, the infinite sign appears, symbolizing infinite luck.

- His given name, Xu Ming Hao, translates as 'Bright and Prosperous'.
- He was the group's final addition.
- His parents are his role models.
- He couldn't communicate in Korean because he was from China, so he buried his face in his pillow and cried a lot. He put a lot of trust in Jun and Hoshi. He stated that these two allowed him to make his debut as an SVT member.
- His first meeting with Jun did not go well because Jun mistook him for someone else (Jun's friend whose name was also Minghao), but it is now regarded as a very embarrassing first impression story on Jun's part.
- He is a Christian as well as a Buddhist.
- He aspired to be a superstar since he was a child. When he was in China, he got into a school audition.
- He's been doing Chinese wushu since he was five years old. He competed in and won the National Children's Martial Arts Competition.
- He spent six years b-boying in China.

- He stated that he watched a lot of variety shows in China and aspired to be a superstar, which is why he became a singer in Korea.
- Henry is his role model. He is Chinese and works extremely hard and efficiently. He aspires to be like him.
- He is the one who always gives the members birthday gifts.
- He founded and participates in a group chat with other Chinese idols working in Korea, such as Jun, WayV's Kun, and Pentagon's Yanan.
- He is one of the most creative members. He enjoys painting and photography.
SEVENTEEN's fashionista is him. He claims that fashion allows him to freely express himself, and that wearing a great outfit allows him to truly live as himself.
- During a break in 2017, he began to paint. He was feeling a little suffocated at the time, so he started trying new things to get away from it.
- He always makes it a point to eat all of his meals. Even if he has to get up at 3 a.m., he will get up an hour earlier and eat.
- He prefers Chinese food to Korean food or foreign food. He and Jun know almost all of the Chinese restaurants in town and frequently recommend certain places to members who want to eat Chinese.
- He enjoys melon.

- He spends a lot of time with Mingyu's father (even without Mingyu sometimes). Mingyu's father once told Minghao to treat him as his second father because his parents live in China and he may feel lonely at times. He also frequently assists Minghao when he requires assistance in his daily life. They went fishing together as well.
- "The8's Contemporary Art" is a small series of projects he is working on.

- The8’s ideal type is someone who is cute and kind.
