    You can't blame him for choosing another path for his future. It's really good to hear his agency understands his decisions and trying to work things out. And his a talented and positive guy. I wish him luck in his future career.

    He's one of my favourites.  It must have been devastating to be eliminated so soon.  But he sounds like a sensible kid.  And I like how his label has responded by offering support and respecting whatever his decision might be.

    This is why I don't like survival TV shows. They destroy people's dreams.

    Well quitting early is a lot better than starting but failing then finding yourself in a huge debt. I believe he's still young to find and achieve another goal.

    Aww, this is so sad. I never thought that he would be eliminated so soon T.T . He's just too cute. I couldn't even believe he's older than Park Jihoon.

    Aww, man, he was one of my top favorites in this show. He's quite attractive and has a good voice (and that accent!). I was even surprised when he got a lower grade than Jihoon and Jongyeon during the evaluations. I honestly thought he should have received a higher rank than the two. I was sad when he got very low votes from the koreans and got eliminated. I think one of the main reason was because he's rarely given any screentime and was greatly overshadowed by Jihoon. Not many people knew of him aside from being Jihoon's labelmate. Also, I think his visual features might be too intense for the Koreans to be considered attractive? Ah, I hope he does not give up on being an idol since I really want him to debut with Jihoon in the future. But if he really decides to give up on idol life, then I hope he becomes successful in whatever career path he chooses.

    Two paths he could take: Either continue living as a trainee while facing an uncertain future in KPop or live a normal life, get an education, a job, and a family. Not everyone who wants to be an idol will become an idol and its better to have a back-up plan rather than waste your youth, energy, and time on something that might never come. It does not mean he's giving up but rather wanting another dream aside from fame.
