During one of his first interviews on the program, Choi Suhwan stated that he thought of this audition program as his last chance and confessed that he’s been to approximately 30-40 auditions in the past, failing at each one.
As a result, he often took to busking on the streets to sing. He claimed that he had better vocal and dance skills than some others, who passed the audition due to their “good visuals”.
I even resented the world at one point. If I was failing because of my face and height, I wanted to overcome this with my skills.
