He said about his stay in the United States, "I studied international relations at Boston College. I got a job at an accounting firm but went to do volunteer work for a year before; while I was in India, I was contacted by the audition program."
When asked, "Is it true that you'd have a salary of hundreds of millions of KRW (~ tens of thousands of USD) if you weren't a singer?" Eric Nam replied, "Including the bonus, it is correct that it'd be hundreds of millions of KRW. I thought about it a lot. I really wanted to go back but it also seemed like a waste to not properly try being a singer and to give it up."
