What’s more shocking, is this all happened before he even became a trainee at SM Entertainment — eliminating rumors of getting in simply because he was a celebrity.

Around the same time he entered university, Taeil was supposedly deciding between Hanyang University or SM Entertainment.

After just one week of school, he dropped out and picked the biggest entertainment company in South Korea instead.
