The Reason Why SEVENTEEN’s Seungkwan Is Being Dubbed A “Social Unicorn”

“That’s not a social butterfly that’s a social unicorn.”

SEVENTEEN‘s Seungkwan appeared on the latest episode of Lee Hyeri‘s talk show, Hyeri’s Club. The two discussed a variety of topics while eating and drinking, and at one point, the topic of the idol’s social life came up.


Seungkwan shares that he has a lot of people’s phone numbers, and Hyeri replies that fans were curious about him being a big social butterfly.

Seungkwan (SK): I have a lot of phone numbers, so…

Hyeri (HR): They were curious about that. You’re a big social butterfly.

SK: Yes.

Hyeri also mentions how everyone likes Seungkwan, which is how he knows so many people! This has made fans curious about his list of contacts.

HR: You know a lot of people, and everyone likes you. They were curious about how many people you have in your contacts.

SK: I don’t have…

HR: I seem like a social butterfly right? But I really don’t have a lot in my contacts.

SK: I don’t have that much.

HR: I’ll reveal it since you’re doing it.


That’s when Seungkwan reveals he has over 800 people in his contacts!

SK: 802? Isn’t this not that much? Is it a lot?

HR: 802?!

SK: I don’t have a lot that I keep in touch with among them.

HR: [Shows Seungkwan her contacts]

SK: Are you someone who cuts people off without hesitation?

HR: 214.

SK: I have about four times more.


They chalk it up to personality differences between them.

HR: ENFP is a bit different. We’re a bit different, you really are a social butterfly.

SK: It is so. Someone who is like I, although she’s an E, is Hyeri. I am someone who wants to be I, but is an E.

Fans can’t help but be amused by Seungkwan’s revelation, and are calling him a “social unicorn” or “inssa”/”인싸”, which means “insider” or “popular kid”.
