Member Hyunseung talked about his time as a trainee under YG Entertainment to debut as a member of Big Bang. “I auditioned to become a member of Big Bang, and even became a finalist,” he revealed. “In the end, it came down to me and Seungri but I got cut.”
He confessed that he had been jealous of Big Bang and said, “I was envious after they became successful. If I did better, I think we could have even been a six-member group.”
However, he added, “But I did not want to force myself in between the members who were exceptionally talented.”
When asked, “How did Big Bang react when you received unending love and support with 4minute‘s HyunA as ‘Troublemaker‘?”, Hyunseung who still keeps in contact with the members of Big Bang replied, “As soon as I called them, they began humming the melody to our song.”
Netizens who saw this episode commented, “It’s weird imagining him as a Big Bang member“, “He would’ve fit in with Big Bang too“, “Glad everyone turned out well in the end,” and more.
