Hongbin: “I auditioned for the company in my 2nd year of high school and became a trainee but I had an unbearably hard time. Because of simplistic thoughts like ‘Why am I learning singing if I can’t even do it?’ ‘I just want to play’, I ran out of the company before. Even though I hid for 2~3 months, N hyung surprisingly found me. I was punished a lot and was scolded a lot but because of him, I’m who I am today." (trans)
