Boonk has always been a trouble maker, which is why he was somewhat popular during his high school years – he allegedly dated numerous girls during that time, was a thief, and often got into bad situations. He was arrested twice, but as he was underage it wasn’t possible for him to be sent to prison, so he always managed to get away with everything.
