He is best known, among the contestants, for being the center of the season. His skills shone so brightly on "Produce X 101", that he earned himself the position of the center for the title track performance. Additionally, fans were not the only ones who fell for his charm while he was on the show. The other contestants were also captivated by his persona.

Fans often spoke about his ability to be aware of his strengths and weakness and adapt a song to highlight him, as opposed to adapting himself to the song.

Others pointed out his confidence and how he utilizes it to be a well-balanced artist who can pull off intense and fierce but also brighter and light performances.

Check out these must-watch fancams from his time as a member of X1 that show off his duality.

However, Son DongPyo was able to make a new start by debuting as a member of MIRAE in 2021.

He is the lead dancer and a vocal in the group. He is known for his pretty dance lines, captivating facial expressions, and being able to pull off any concept that the group does.

His plot-twist-like charm is his ability to do impactful strong choreography, too.

Check out this fancam of him performing 'Splash'.

"Hello, I am MIRAE's talented and loveable cutie, Son DongPyo."

NOW (MIRAE's fandom) might be used to this familiar line. However, others may wonder where it came from.

When some people see something cute they might use the word 'adorable' to describe it. However, those people probably don't know about Son DongPyo. His name is synonymous with all of the possible words you could use for 'cute'.

He is famous for natural aegyo and how endearing he can be without even trying. When he actually makes an effort to show aegyo, you might faint from the cuteness overload. He is an aegyo vending machine!
