Bang Yedam sign into YG Entertainment

“The training period wasn’t short so I was really happy and relieved to know I would finally be making my debut. I think that it helped me a lot to receive so much support. I could mature by hearing the judgments of people outside my agency.”  ~ Bang Ye Dam

More than anything else, I was really happy that I was picked where my parents could see me. My family came to Korea from Japan, so the result was even more meaningful to me.”    ~ Haruto

“When my name came up on the screen, my mind went blank for several seconds. Eventually, I thought, ‘I finally did it.’ There were a lot of times where I had to show my dancing skills, but the other members helped me a lot and I think I improved.” ~ So Junghwan

Choi Hyun Suk

“It was tough. Honestly, I thought to myself that I didn’t make it. I woke up in the morning and my mom hadn’t gone to work. I’d woken up in the middle of sleeping to check and my mind went blank. I’m so thankful. I think that I was able to find my own uniqueness. I think that I have an unexpected side of me. People who cheer me on seem to like that I can have two contradictory sides of me.” ~ Choi Hyunsuk
