The DRIPPIN member revealed that during Chuseok, which is the Korean equivalent of Thanksgiving, some representatives of his company were bored and decided to search up random names.

A representative that worked for my label was bored during Chuseok so he went on Google and Facebook where he began to randomly search up names. He told me he really had nothing else to do during Chuseok.

The former Produce 101 contestant continued his story by sharing that eventually, the representative ended up searching up his full birth name to see who would come up.

He said that he knew someone that had my birth name so he searched it up and that’s when I popped up. You guys know my Facebook profile picture, right? That was my profile picture at the time and it was after he saw that photo that he scouted me.

It’s weird right? He searched up my name, I popped up and then I got casted. It’s very simple, but I am very lucky.
