UNIQ's Seungyoun opened up about his road to debut in an interview with Xports News.

The idol revealed that he has auditioned more than 50 times for SM, JYP, YG, and more. Seungyoun explained, "SM holds weekly auditions, and I went once in 2 weeks. SM always told me to stay after the audition, but I never made it. I'm still curious as to why they told me to stay. As for JYP, I don't think I was able to show all of me because I got intimidated watching other auditioners warming up. I made it at YG, and I was a trainee there for one year and a half. I learned a lot, and my skills improved a lot too."

Seungyoun continued to explain how he made his debut in UNIQ and said, "UNIQ is a Chinese-Korean collaboration group by YG and Yuehwa Entertainment. So Sungjoo hyung and I, who were YG trainees, came to join. The debut preparation took place at YG training center, so we practiced with WINNER and iKON. When I had time, I used to hang out and rap with Bobby hyung."

Yeuhwa later as in now partnered with starship but yeuhwa collabrated with yg to debut Uniq

I love Uniq they are completely underrated. Unfortunately their fan base is much smaller than a lot of the other male groups that are popular right now so it's hard for them to get any real attention.

Actually, UNIQ is very popular in China. In Korea, as you say, not something much

I was referring to Korea. Unfortunately as we've seen even if a group is very popular in China or Japan if they don't sell well in Korea or they don't have a large fan base then companies tend not to try and promote them more. I think if they had better promotions from their company they could stand out more in Korea.
