A while back, ATEEZ had an interview with Melon where they answered a bunch of pretty random questions, and one of the questions that each member answered individually was which Hogwarts house they think they would belong in if they were in the Harry Potter universe! More recently, fans on Reddit also discussed which house they think each member would belong in, and while a couple were the same as what the members said themselves, most were quite different!
Here’s a comparison of the houses that the members choose for themselves compared to the most common fan opinions from the Reddit post. Remember, these are all just for fun!
Hongjoong’s opinion: Ravenclaw
Fans’ opinion: Gryffindor/Slytherin
Like with most cases when trying to determine someone’s Hogwarts house, everything really just comes down to opinion and reasoning, which makes all of these answers subjective. Fans seemed to have the most trouble deciding on a house for Hongjoong out of all the members! While he chose Ravenclaw for himself — which makes sense, given that he is incredibly intelligent, especially when it comes to music production — fans were mostly torn between Gryffindor and Slytherin!
There’s no doubt that he’s a fantastic leader and has boldly tried all kinds of unique and even unconventional styles in his music and fashion, which can be seen as Gryffindor traits, he is also very self-driven and ambitious, which would make him lean a little more towards Slytherin! Slytherdor, perhaps?
Seonghwa’s opinion: Gryffindor
Fans’ opinion: Hufflepuff
Though Seonghwa chose Gryffindor for himself, fans by far voted for him as a Hufflepuff! Like the rest of ATEEZ, he does have a certain charisma and boldness about him in his performance style that could be Gryffindor traits. However, he is also an incredibly patient, loyal, and gentle person off-stage, and often seen as having a “maternal” role in the group that are undoubtedly why many fans see him fitting into Hufflepuff!
Yunho’s opinion: Gryffindor
Fans’ opinion: Hufflepuff
Like Seonghwa, Yunho also voted himself in Gryffindor while fans thought he was better suited for Hufflepuff! He does fit the brave and strong vibes of a Gryffindor, especially with how tall and bold he is, but fans are well-aware that despite his size he’s really a gentle giant that’s incredibly friendly and seems to get along well with anyone! Several fans even compared him to Cedric Diggory: Good-looking, good at everything, happy-go-lucky, and an all-around warm and sweet guy!
Yeosang’s opinion: Gryffindor
Fans’ opinion: Slytherin/Ravenclaw
Like the majority of ATEEZ, Yeosang also said he thinks he would fit best in Gryffindor! In contrast, however, fans by a majority thought he would be better suited for Slytherin, with Ravenclaw as a close second. The same argument could be made for him as previous members for Gryffindor, however, he also definitely has a sly and cunning edge that might put him more in Slytherin territory (remember him shamelessly calling out other members’ embarrassing behavior?)! Then again, he isn’t always so savage and definitely has a soft side while also still being intelligent, so maybe Ravenclaw would be the right choice in the end!
San’s opinion: Slytherin/Griffindor
Fans’ opinion: Hufflepuff
In the interview, San first wrote Slytherin for himself before changing to, of course, Gryffindor. Apparently it was a fan that had given him the idea of being a Slytherin, but in the Reddit post, Hufflepuff was actually the most popular choice for him! Fans know San to be a bright, cheerful, high-energy person that would seem to make him a good choice for Hufflepuff, though there is also an argument that he is the true definition of a Slytherpuff: Soft and sweet on one hand, but ambitious and mischievous on the other, giving him the perfect duality!
Mingi’s opinion: Ravenclaw
Fans’ opinion: Ravenclaw
Mingi is one of only two members in the group where his choice and fans’ overwhelming choice were the same! Though he acts pretty silly and childish at times, ATINYs know that Mingi is extremely smart, especially when it comes to writing song lyrics. He also was the best out of all the members in solving math equations! He’s no doubt a very clever and creative person that would perfectly fit Ravenclaw.
Wooyoung’s opinion: Gryffindor
Fans’ opinion: Gryffindor
Wooyoung was the other member of the group whose opinion matched with fans’ opinions! One fan pointed out that it was very brave of him to take the risk and follow Yeosang to KQ Entertainment rather than staying at BigHit Entertainment as a trainee, despite it being his dream company as a BTS fan. He seems to love being in the center of attention and always has the other members’ backs, so Gryffindor seems to be a good fit for him!
Jongho’s opinion: Gryffindor
Fans’ opinion: Slytherin
Finally, Jongho also chose Gryffindor for himself, but fans actually thought he would be better suited for Slytherin! He was another member, though, that many fans seemed quite torn over since he has so many unique and sometimes contrasting traits. Even though he’s the maknae of ATEEZ, he is often considered the most mature, and the other members seem to really respect him and his space despite being older than him. He’s strong, but also witty and ambitious, so in the end it could possibly be a toss-up between Gryffindor and Slytherin and up to him to make his own choice!
