SEVENTEEN Jun’s Struggle as a Trainee

Jun revealed that he became interested in K-pop when he was a student in China, and decided to move to Korea to pursue his dream of becoming an idol. He joined Pledis Entertainment as a trainee in 2012, but he faced many difficulties adjusting to the new environment.

He said that performing in front of strangers was always nerve-wracking for him, and there was a time when he almost lost his voice due to anxiety. He also struggled with learning Korean and improving his pronunciation.

To overcome his fears and challenges, Pledis Entertainment gave him a unique task: to sing to random people on the streets of Gangnam. He had to find someone who would listen to him until the first chorus of the song he chose.

Jun said that he wandered around Gangnam for almost an hour during lunchtime, looking for someone who would pay attention to his singing. However, most people he approached were too busy or indifferent to spare him a moment.

He was about to give up when he met a kind elderly man who agreed to listen to him. Jun decided to sing “Lie Lie Lie” by Lee Juck, a poignant ballad about feeling betrayed and abandoned by someone you love.

The song resonated deeply with the man, who not only complimented Jun’s emotional rendition but also gave him some constructive feedback on his Korean pronunciation. He also encouraged Jun to keep pursuing his dream and not give up.

Jun said that the encounter left a lasting impression on him, and he expressed his sincere gratitude to the stranger who had unknowingly played a pivotal role in his journey. He said that he wished he could meet him again and thank him personally.
