Business Proposal star Ahn Hyo Seop made a buzz recently when fans found out that he had once almost debuted in GOT7. The star had trained with the boys and even lived in a dorm with them. However, he eventually left the company. While fans were heartbroken to hear what could have been with the handsome star, turns out, there were two more fine men that slipped through the cracks too. Read on to find out who else nearly made the cut!
1. Ahn Hyo Seop
Ahn Hyo Seop had moved from Canada to South Korea to pursue his dreams. He had trained and dormed with the GOT7 boys. However, he eventually quit due to him feeling that his skills were not yet up to par. His height also stood out amongst the other members.
When the group was being formed, I was practicing with them, but I didn’t make it to the team. At the time, I wasn’t good enough, and I was quite tall compared to the other members.

2. Na In Woo
Na In Woo was casted on the streets when he was in middle school. He trained at JYP Entertainment for many years into his teens. He trained with GOT7’s Jinyoung and JB. The pair later went on to debut as JJ Project, a pre-launch duo before GOT7’s official debut years later. When he was in his last year of high school, he dropped out of the company. He began to think about his future after he got accepted to college. The casting director who brought him into JYP Entertainment suggested he audition for CUBE Entertainment‘s acting department and he got in.
3. Park Seoham
Park Seoham previously went viral when fans belatedly realized he used to train with BTS in BigHit Entertainment. Following that, he had joined JYP Entertainment where he trained with GOT7 and DAY6 members. During a variety show, Hitmaker, Jackson from GOT7 had been happy to see Park Seoham with his new group KNK. Jackson shared that he had been in the same debut team as Park Seoham. Unfortunately, Park Seoham did not make the cut and ended up making his debut with KNK. Later, after leaving KNK, he entered the acting industry after signing with an entertainment company set up by an ex-VP from JYP Entertainment.
