When Hoseok was 8, he went to an amusement park with his mother. They were playing hide and seek together, but Hoseok's mother, instead of hiding, left him alone with a Snickers bar. He was then sent to an orphanage, where he stayed for 10 years. Since the incident, he couldn't count to 10 out loud, and would faint at 8. (Source: www.bu.edu)
