During one portion, he talked about dating as an idol, saying, "These days, junior idols get to more freely date in public unlike the time when [I was an idol]. At the time, if you dated in a public manner, it would be a very big issue. That's why I dated without the agency knowing.
Even if I were dating, if I had no thoughts on marrying my girlfriend, I would not reveal [the relationship]. I think, if anything, this would be considerate toward my girlfriend."
