SEVENTEEN‘s Mingyu is famous for being an all-rounder idol and for having jaw-dropping visuals balanced out by a caring and clumsy personality. Besides this, Mingyu has a slew of other attributes and talents that could guarantee success in many different career paths had he chosen something other than the idol life. With so many skills under his belt, it’s only fair that he’s been balanced out with chronic clumsiness and terrible luck. However, those two flaws only add to Mingyu’s endearing allure. Here’s a list of fifteen things Mingyu is masterful at, proving that he is the definition of multitalented.
Mingyu is part of SEVENTEEN’s hip-hop team, and there’s a reason why he’s been dubbed the “rap god” by his fellow members.

Since he’s in SEVENTEEN, it’s a given that Mingyu has mastered dancing, and his visuals have an even stronger impact when he’s on stage.
4. Playing Guitar
Besides being able to fill any position in an idol group, Mingyu is also gifted with instruments.
Not only is he mesmerizing in front of the camera, but Mingyu is also an amazing photographer himself. He loves taking pictures of his members and even directed, edited, and photographed SEVENTEEN’s “GOING” magazine.
If the magazine shoot wasn’t enough proof of Mingyu’s skill with the camera, the ending credits of SEVENTEEN’s song “Snap Shoot” is completely filled with his name. It seems he can fill every job on set, from director to stylist to videographer to model.
Cooking is one of Minyu’s more widely known talents, and it’s even more impressive once you realize that he probably cooks for thirteen people on a regular basis.
once the world finds out how amazing mingyu as a chef is, more ppl will love him even more 🫂pic.twitter.com/lc7el8QPav

Not a talent you’d expect most people, let alone an idol, to have.
On top of being an idol that raps, dances, sings + writes great lyrics– Mingyu cooks, he cleans, he can build and fix anything, he's a great athlete, amazing painter/artist, photographer…
AND NOW YOU'RE TELLING ME HE CAN CROSS STITCH REALLY WELL TOO? WHAT CAN HE NOT DO 😭 pic.twitter.com/00LVxLjv7t

11. He’s In Charge Of SEVENTEEN’s Shared Brain Cell
There’s nothing more attractive than intelligence unless it’s someone who’s been blessed with beauty, brawn, and brains (aka Mingyu).

Along with being athletic, Mingyu is one of the strongest members in SEVENTEEN, able to carry another person easily — or even multiple.

One of Mingyu’s future dreams is to be a race car driver, and he’s already got his foot in the door.

15. Taking Care Of People
While it may not seem to be a talent, taking care of others takes continual dedication, love, and effort.
