As many know, Beomhan is a Chinese American trainee member of the pre-debut group M.O.N.T Arena. Beomhan gained the attention of fans through promotion at various events in the United States alongside Boys Planet contestant Jay Chang.

Beomhan is very active on social media and spends much time doing live streams on different platforms where he chats with fans. Often, the content is amusing…

…although he has been very open about his struggles with his mental health, even talking about his doctor visits.


I’d probably get diagnosed with depression, anger issues, violent mood swings, addiction, bipolar, etc 💀 #fyp #beomhan #범한 #beomhanforlatinas

In his most recent stream on March 8, Beomhan revealed that he recently visited a therapist and psychiatrist. While he admitted the therapist visit did not do much good for him, he says the psychiatrist “actually helped him.

During this part of the live, he trigger-warned viewers “dealing with mental illness, depression, anxiety” to leave the stream. 

After warning viewers again, he admits that he “had an attempt” in July or August of 2022.

This is triggering. I had an attempt, uh, I think in July. It was like either July or August, I think. Didn’t work.

He then shared that he told his therapist about the attempt and expressed confusion at what she told him in response.

And I was telling my therapist about it. And then she said to me ‘It feels like you couldn’t do it back then, but even though you couldn’t, you stil feel dead.’ I was like ‘What the heck? Why did you say that?’

— Beomhan

Beomhan quickly changed the subject after this statement while trying to lighten the matter with his humor. Beomhan is known for his energetic and playful personality, meaning this was probably very difficult for him to mention on live stream in front of fans.
