Seungyoon shared that the company separates male and females trainees since they want to eliminate the chance of them dating. YG Entertainment also believes that trainees can’t focus properly on training if they’re dating.

Due to this rule, when Seungyoon was a trainee, he fantasized about what the female trainees in the company looked like. These female trainees were a big mystery to Seungyoon.
