Although he already had certain amount of fame when he entered the agency, Bang Ye Dam shared, “During my trainee period, I went through the exact same training process as all the other members.

He also humbly noted, “Although I trained for a long time, it wasn’t just me: all of the members prepared for a long time. That’s why we were able to improve and grow even more, and all of the members were able to prepare things outside of their main focus [such as vocals, dance, or rap].

All of the members improved a lot, including me,” he went on, “and I think that we all probably feel proud when we see how much the others have grown. I think that all of the members were cast [by the agency] because they showed potential, and then we trained together.
