When Won Bin was in high school, he told his mom that he wanted to be a celebrity but she said to him, "There are better looking guys than you in Gangneung. Do you think anyone can be a celebrity? Stop saying nonsense and focus on your studies."
(Won Bin's parents interview)
Interviewer: Father, your son is handsome because he takes after you^^
WB's Father: He thinks he's handsome. Of course a son must take after his father, who else would he take after. He looks average to me.
Interviewer: But... aren't you proud of him?
WB's Father: There are kids who grew up better than him. I don't find him that amazing
On his way to Won Bin's hometown, an entertainment reporter asked an elder for directions
Reporter: Excuse me, do you know where Won Bin's house is?
Elder: (Nonchalantly) Over there!
Reporter: Thank you
When the reporter arrived at Won Bin's house, the elder who taught him the directions got there too.
Reporter: Omo, father we meet agin. What brings you here?
Elder; This is our house.
Elder=Won Bin's dad
Won Bin went home to his hometown looking so disheveled. While he was harvesting chilli peppers in their yard, a woman spotted him and she asked if she could take a photo with him.
Woman: Oppa, I'm a big fan. Would you take a photo with me please?
Won Bin: I don't look too good right now... I'm sorry
His mom scolds him, "Why make it such a big deal? What's hard about taking a photo with someone!?"
Won Bin took a photo with the woman and even gave her an autograph.

When I'm with my nunas, they usually persuade me to go to Dongdaemun with them to shop for clothes. And if I tell them that I don't want to go, they would scold me and they would say "Never mind! Aren't you being so self-conscious? No one would recognize you".
But that's not what I mean. Even when I tell them, "I don't want you nunas to be uncomfortable" they'd be like, "You're too full of yourself".
My family doesn't think of me as a star.
After Won Bin and Lee Na Young confirmed their relationship, a reporter went to Won Bin's parents for an interview.
Reporter: Were you aware that Won Bin had a girlfriend?
Parents: We weren't. We didn't know because we don't use computers or watch tv.
Reporter: Did your son tell you about it?
Won Bin's mother: Our son never tells us things like that. When he visits us, he normally doesn't tell stories. He takes after his father who's not much of a talker.
Reporter: I think they're gonna get married soon.
Parents: Dunno. Maybe, maybe not. It's up to them to decide.
(During Won Bin's interview)
Reporter: So you're the maknae of a big household. Don't they pressure you to get married?
Won Bin: My family isn't like that. Each member lives by his/her own principles. We're carefree.
