Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Toriaez Hana's audition name, "Cent Chihiro Tette", was a parody of Cent Chihiro Chittiii.
- She would later join a shuffle unit, HOLY SHiTS, with her audition namesake.
- Wanted to become a K-Pop idol after her mother took her to a BIG BANG concert.
- While generally positive, she worries about other people's opinion of her. She also hates silence and tries to talk to cover it up, which irritated many fans watching the live stream of the WACK Audition Camp 2018. During her solo interview, she says that she thinks it runs in her family, as her mother talks a lot too.
- Her BiS stage name was a parody of the Japanese Ikazaya phrase, "Toriezu Nama" (とりあえず生; I'll have a beer for now). It is probably why her role in BiS was the "Cheers!" member.
