Ahn HyoSeop said that, at first, the instrument seemed very unfamiliar but as he kept learning how to play it, he became fond of the experience. Knowing what it is like to actually play the instrument would definitely mean a deeper performance on-screen. It is admirable to see him dedicated to his craft.

While most people shower after they exercise, Ahn HyoSeop says that he prefers to shower before his workout. He recently appeared on the Korean variety show "Mom's Diary: My Ugly Duckling" and revealed this interesting fact. He said that the reason why is because he wants to enjoy the workout itself and feel fresh while he's doing it. He then added that he doesn't shower again after the workout.
Unfortunately, entertainer Seo JangHoon could not understand why he would do things that way. Ahn HyoSeop clarified that he showers before bed anyways, but the studio was still very intrigued by his interesting way of doing things.
