She is very determined and giving up is never in her dictionary. She believes that everything is possible and nothing is impossible. Dani too have talents that wow people. She has a certain charm that makes her unique in her own way and style. One might think that Dani is someone who doesn't care about her own stuff or others.

She is very responsible and hates leaving work undone, in fact, she is the only one who bothers cleaning up the dorm. With an IQ of 150, Dani is basically a human encyclopedia. She simply knows answers to a lot of things despite only going to school for up until she is 20. She aced nearly all her exams during high school and was always top 5 in the whole cohort. Due to her intelligence, Dani is quick-witted. She can answer and even solve a question in a fast period of time. She even can solve a rubiks cube within a minute and a half. Well, another first impression of her, is someone who gets scared and threatened easily. Well, No she isn't one of those . In fact, being a strong leader, Dani is very brave. She takes up whatever challenges even if she hates it. She would do anything which includes bungee jumping when she have Acrophobia just for her groupmates. She isn't one to turn down a good challenge.
Well, Dani is also very very very [see what i did there xD] clean. Her room is always clean. Like dust free. She's very neat and can't stand the sight of messiness. She could vomit blood if she sees a messy room and would cry if she sees that. Due to Dani being a former cheerleader and captain, Dani is quite flexible. She can do many gymnastic tricks such as an aerial, cartwheel, bridge and even a front aerial. Dani can never lie. Even with a blunt personality, of course she can't lie, but no, Dani hates lying and is very faithful. She hates cheating and would always come out clean. At first, some people might think Dani is a cold person. With her badass look, they might even think that Dani hates or can't stand being around people, but of course, never judge a book by it's cover. Dani is a friendly girl, but that is only to people who acknowledges her presence. If you don't acknowledge or personally start a conversation with her, she would ignore you and act as if you're not there, but if you acknowledge her, she would be smiling and talking with you like she had been friends with you for years. With her determination, Dani is a passionate girl. She would put her all into something if she can't succeed. Of course that's how people usually think she is a leader, because she can be so positive over a situation and would put her full attention to it.
Apart from the good side, Dani have quite a number of bad sides. She tends to speak out of her mind. Due to her being intelligent, she blurts out irrelevant words that could hurt others. Many hate this trait of hers, seeing as her comments are not very nice and welcoming. Insead, it's something very offensive and hurtful. The other thing is that Dani can never control her certain temper. She gets pissed off easily, especially on her time of month. Dani would always burst out, hitting things that are very close to her, glaring at those who pissed her off and cussing to them like there is no tomorrow. It gets worse once she turns ill. she would cuss, even when the manager is present. Dani once tried fixing her temper but to no avail, so people would have to live with her temper. Believing too much is Dani. She is very dense in some situation and very naive despite having an IQ of 150. She believes in people too much that she can get hurt. It's something the members worry about since she trusts people too much and that she can never get the real situation or the real reason behind their actions. Get ready for Dani's whines. Dani can never wait for anyone. She hates waiting that she can leave you if you're late for even a minute. Though she is sometimes forced to wait, she would start whining and scolding the person who was late, saying that she was '2 seconds' from leaving them behind. Dani can nag without hurting . once she sees something out of order, there goes the speaker. She would talk and talk to her members without stopping. Her nags are one thing to be careful about as once she talks, she'll never shut it. Full of sentences to burn people, Dani is one sarcastic person. She knows how to have fun, but sometimes it's too much fun and that annoys people. Never take her words seriously, especially her sarcasm.
BACKGROUND : Dani was born on December 25, 1999 in Busan, South Korea and is the 2nd child. Her birth name was Kang Dani but at a very young age, her parents gave her up for adoption. Dani was a mistake in their family and they couldn't afford raising her. The family didn't plan for a second child, but due to the parents mistake, her mother got pregnant with her. Having a heart, her mother endured 9 months with a child in her womb and once the baby is born, they would give he or her up. Fortunately, a foreign family, adopted the young korean baby when they were on vacation. The mother sadly, couldn't give birth due to her damaged oviduct. The couple did want a baby so badly, thus adopted Dani. They renamed her Samantha Zafina Wayne. Right after that day, the Kang family never saw their baby girl's face ever again.
The Wayne family soon moved to Brooklyn, New York. Life in Brooklyn was quite easy for Dani, seeing as she was adopted when she was only a baby, so it makes it easier, as she grew up following her adopted parents ways. She can speak english without any difficulty since she grew up using that language and she had never once thought about her ethnicity once she grew to be a teenager. She felt the need to ask such a sensitive question on "Where was she from? Who was she exactly?" those were the constant thoughts of Dani. Though she would push those questions away, she would always feel the urge to blurt it out on the dinner table. Which in the end, she did. Both her adopted parents were taken aback by their daughter's sudden question. Heck, even her older siblings were shocked. They thought that she wouldn't ask on such a sensitive topic, but she did. Of course, her father told Dani, her ethnicity and where she was born, which was Korea. Missing puzzle pieces were finally found as Dani finally found answers to her questions. After that fateful night, Dani never asked anything about who she really was.
When Dani turned 8, Dani took up cheerleading just for fun. She find it interesting as she would be able to do multiple things, such as a cartwheel and a back handspring. She honestly was having fun. They voted her captain thanks to her leader-like personality and her dedication to cheerleading. Although, it started out as something to kill her time, Dani came to love it. I mean, she got to cheer for (hot) basketball players who represent the school during competitions and she got to attend multiple championship tournaments. Dani finds it funny since she isn't one of those girly girls who wear skirts and dresses, yet there she was, standing with a bunch of girls, doing tricks that is highly dangerous and could lead to injuries. One fateful day, soon changed Dani's life forever.
2 years passed since she joined cheerleading. She did not expect herself to be a cheerleader. Well, thanks to cheerleading, Dani soon fell into the kpop world. She was in the midst of picking a song for a routine she was choreographing for the school's annual basketball competition, when she a video of a boy group called, "Shinhwa" appeared in her recommended list. She honestly did not think much of it, since she was already obsessed with rock bands, thus did not hesitate to listen to it and judge it. That was when she realised that the song was actually perfect for her routine. So she did used this so called "Shinhwa"'s song. Days turned to weeks, Dani found herself humming to Shinhwa's songs. She found herself searching up on Korean pop music, which led her to become a full Kpop fan. She would sing and dance to every kpop song she knows and would start fangirling over her 'oppas'. Thanks to Kpop, Dani also found interest in rapping. She doesn't give any if she sounds like a sim avatar when rapping. She would just spit out rhymes whenever and wherever she finds the time to. Thanks to Shinhwa, her dream changed.
Sadly, on the same year, Dani had to move to Los Angeles. Her father got promoted and had to move to the branch in LA. Her cheer team was so disappointed when they heard of the news. They were very much upset to see their captain move. They gave her a small gift, which was a picture of the whole squad for her to remember them. Once her family settled in LA, Dani decided not to do Cheerleading, since she did not want to face her former squadmates if they were to participate in championships. Instead, she went to join B-boying, despite being only 10 years old. Her mother was very disappointed in her when she found out that Dani joined something that is very boyish. Although it wasn't that difficult for her to do any of the tumbling tricks due to her past knowledge on cheerleading. Without notice, 3 years passed and Dani grew to love LA a lot. She felt as though B-Boying was what she was really meant for, not cheerleading. Although she did write her own lyrics and rap when there's free time, she felt b-boying was her. Fortunately, MMO entertainment, a subsidiary agency for CJ E&M, scouted her when they saw her B-boying and doing some rap. They felt as though she had talent. With her parent's permission, Dani soon flew to Korea, her birthplace, to start training.
During her training, many secrets unfold, such as her relation with Kang Daniel. One thing that hurt Dani more was when she had to leave MMO 4 years later due to miscommunications and disagreements. MMO decided to let go of her and Dani decided to cancel her contract. No one was there to support her since she was a foreigner in heart. Only her true friends, stayed by her side. They were the ones who provided Dani care and concern for her when she left MMO. They felt that MMO lost a gem just like her. Sadly, to start of with, Dani did not own an apartment since she has been living in a dorm provided by MMO. Daniel, being her older brother, brought her to meet
his their family. Dani was taken aback to meet her biological parents, who gave her away just like that when she was born. She was partially mad and partially glad when she saw the faces of her supposed 'parents'. Both her parents tried to apologise and not having the heart to reject, Dani forgave them, and was welcomed with an open arm. Although Dani had some support from her friends and older brother, she tried to look for a job, which was hard since she didn't have any education since she was too busy with her training. Her solution was to do street rapping. Yes, she tried street rapping in Hongdae, and it gave her a huge fortune. Brand New Music scouted her right on the spot after her rap, to which Dani accepted and soon started her training.

THE ONES WHO STICK WITH ME NO MATTER WHAT
▸ Older brother — Kang Daniel ☆ 20 ☆ Trainee under MMO ☆ friendly, caring ☆
Despite being separated for more than a decade, Dani and Daniel are really close. When both found out that they were related and are actually siblings, they were taken aback since they looked nothing like each other. Slowly, as time passed by, they finally felt the small sibling connection when the got to know each other. Although it has only been 2 years since they found out, they act as though they've known each other for longer. Daniel would always tease Dani about her small height which doesn't exactly make sense since Dani is not that short while Dani would always try to challenge Daniel in B-boying. It was also a coincidence that both took part in B-boying. Daniel also became quite protective over her and would always scare off any guys that would lay a hand on his baby sister. Literally, if you break Dani's heart, he'll break your face.
▸ Best Friend — Yoon Jisung aka Memesung ☆ 26 ☆ trainee under MMO ☆ Goofy, emotional ☆
The memelord happened to be Dani's most trusted friend. Jisung is known to have a lot of reactions, so when Dani told him of her relation to Daniel, his faced showed it all. Jisung is also known to be someone who is blunt and loud and it fits Dani perfectly since Dani herself is blunt. These two are very much close to the point where Jisung knows Dani's darkest secrets that even Daniel doesn't know. Dani trusts Jisung a lot and Jisung treats Dani just like she's his sister.
▸ Close Friend — Joo Jinwoo ☆ 24 ☆ Trainee under MMO ☆ protective, matured ☆
Another one of her friends when she was under MMO. How did Jinwoo and Dani become friends? Simple. They trained together alongside Jisung before Taewoong and Daniel was added. Dani loves Jinwoo and treats him like he's her older brother. Dani finds Jinwoo different from Jisung since Jinwoo isn't a gossip queen like Jisung but more onto the matured "Touch her you're dead" side. Jinwoo is quite protective over Dani and would do anything to prevent Dani from getting hurt.
▸ Close Friend — Park Woojin ☆ 18 ☆ Trainee under Brand New Music ☆ Playful, caring ☆
Woojin was the first guy Dani ever talked to in Brand New Music. They became friends right after their first conversation due to their interest in rapping and dancing. Dani felt as though Woojin was different from other people and that he was a bit similar in Jisung in terms of trust. She treats Woojin just like he's a brother and had a crush on him once but had moved on. Dani loves to tease Woojin about a lot of things such as his non-existence abs (He is so cute I can't even say anything)
ROAD TO STARDOM
STAGE NAME : Dani
MAIN POSITION : Rap and Dance
TRAINEE YEARS : 4 years under MMO 1 year under Brand New Music
TRAINEE LIFE :
▸ Well, when she first joined MMO, many trainees thought she wouldn't be good. Seeing as she was raised in america. Many thought she would fail and be dropped and cut immediately. Dani proved them wrong though, She pushed through everything and worked hard. Improving everything, dancing and rapping. She was always seen, dancing or rapping alone in a dance room. She wanted to show everybody, telling them "you should never mess with me". It was a motto, her quote. Her trainers would always nag and throw harsh comments on her. Dani would be the only person, that had gotten over a million nasty remark thrown into her face. Many wanted her to fail. They didn't want a tomboy in the industry. As you can see, Dani is never close with the trainees. They were all disgusted by her. They were envious of her, seeing as she happened to be so lucky since she was given a chance to train despite making multiple mistakes. When things gets worse, only Daniel and his friends were there to support her. Although he himself had to focus on a lot of things such as his own training, he still managed to cheer Dani everytime she's down. Fortunately, Dani managed to find a friend, Jisung. In the end, she was supposed to debut, but was soon cut. MMO's CEO and her had many disagreements and miscommunication which led to Dani's departure. She couldn't take it that the CEO was forcing her to do something she doesn't want to do, thus she cancelled her contract.
After leaving, Dani had nothing to do. She did not have any education, heck she didn't even have a house to live in as everything was MMO's property. That's where Daniel comes in. He brought Dani home to where
his their family lives. They accepted her with open arms despite the fact that they were the ones who left her in the first place. Jisung and Daniel helped her in so many ways, such as trying to find her a decent job so she could stop depending on her biological parent's money. They even tried to find her a decent apartment for her to live in. Dani did feel guilty on leaving it to their hands since they're very busy with training, thus came up with a solution to street rap. She felt that she had the talent, so why not use it to earn money. She would perform at Hongdae every evening and would receive money sometimes. Well, one fortunate day changed Dani's life. It was a normal evening and has been 2 weeks since her departure from MMO. Dani did her usual thing, which was start rapping with the help of a band there. The only different thing was, Brand New Music's representative was there, and witnessed Dani's raps. He, eventually, scouted Dani on the spot right after her performance and that was when Dani started her training.
Training under Brand New Music wasn't any different. Sleepless nights just because of practice. Sore throats an aching bodies just because of rapping and Dancing. Dani did not mind though, in fact, she loved the feeling of finally training again. In Brand New Music, she felt as though everything was different. People were nicer and tend to communicate with her. She did make a few friends and was very much loving the atmosphere. Jisung and Daniel were relieved to know that she was back to her roots on becoming an idol again. However, Dani had to take vocal classes as well, and as far as she knew, she wasn't confident in singing. Although she did improve in a span of 1 year, she still feel as though she's still lacking in many points. She can't hit high notes but her tone is more to the softer side than the strong one. Her raps eventually improved 100% since Brand New Music is known to be a hiphop record label.
