Wonwoo mentioned that “Some bright-minded guys join (the training at the agency), they get depressed suddenly. They feel the gap. Then, they quit easily.”

Seventeen leader S.coups and vocal unit leader Woozi spilled that Jeonghan had a difficult time as a trainee since his first day and thought that he wouldn’t be able to make the cut because of it.

However, Hoshi shared that although Jeonghan had a tough time during their trainee days, he never once skipped a choreography class and worked really hard to improve.

Main vocal DK admitted that he thought about quitting, mentioning that it was difficult for him during the first two to three weeks of training, however Seungkwan kept him motivated.

Maknae Dino opened up about not making the first round of auditions to be part of SEVENTEEN, however upon hearing that the entertainment will be holding a second batch of auditions, he gave his all to improve his skills and eventually made the cut to be included as part of SEVENTEEN.
