During his (Rain) trainee period, his mother passed away. And when we went through something like that together, I think I kind of took a piece of his heart with me.

After the two formed a close bond with each other, Park Jin Young got a little “superstitious” and made a “bargain”. Park Jin Young decided to quit smoking so that Rain could become successful.

So I was so focused on that he had to be successful. I wanted to do something. I thought about what the biggest challenge would be for me. ‘I’ll quit smoking’. So, I quit smoking.
