After pursuing a musical theater role in Billy Elliot the Musical, Rocky joined Fantagio Entertainment in 2012 at just 11 years old. Because of how early Rocky began his training, the idol has admitted that his “darkest moment” was when he realized that he was “sort of lacking in social skills” since he “didn’t get to learn to socialize like most kids would in school.”

I will pick Rocky! I’m very thankful for Rocky.

Rocky sent us a message while we ended our practice. He sent a message asking if we were doing alright. So I sent him our dance practice video and told him this and that. After that, he pointed out parts that were lacking so I was extremely grateful.

Fans later asked how he decided on that particularly touching ending fairy, and Rocky explained that he wanted to express his feelings without using words.
