On the March 22 broadcast, Eli and his family visited his childhood home in the state of Washington.
Eli shared about his past, and revealed, "I once got beat up really bad by students. So I came (home) crying with my noona and my dad ran out to get them in like 5 seconds. That's also when I started taekwondo."
He continued, "The teacher didn't like me very much either. It was in high school. I encountered a lot of racial discrimination. That's why I lack confidence even til today."
