As ATINYs already know, ATEEZ‘s main rapper, Mingi, has been on hiatus since last year in order to take care of his mental health. While it’s wonderful that he’s taken the time to put his health first and focus on getting better, fans still miss him terribly!
Here are 17 reasons why fans miss the giant cutie of ATEEZ so much, and are all hoping that he feels able to perform again soon once he has fully recovered.
1. Just looking at his sweet smile is enough to make you feel better.

2. He shows affection so naturally and easily it’s just too precious.
can’t stop thinking about how mingi has a tendency to just hold the members hands randomly and the members look at mingi like ?? bc not even mingi realises he does it sometimes 💔💔
