Dingo first said, "There were lots of talks when you departed the group. What's the true reason behind your departure?"

Nam Tae Hyun responded, "There are a lot of speculations but they are only speculations. I left after making a good compromise. We just had different paths to walk." Dingo then asked if he was afraid of leaving the label. He answered, "It was hard at the time. To me, it was a place like home."

The next question asked if he ever regretted his decision, and Nam Tae Hyun said, "No, but I'm just sorry." He explained, "Good or bad, there were changes because of me. I just pray that this will turn out to be good changes in the future."

Dingo continued with the next question, asking, "What is the biggest change that happened to you?" Nam Tae Hyun honestly answered, "I became poor." He and Dingo burst into laughter. Nam Tae Hyun continued, "I was wealthy during YG and now I'm back to my place. People shouldn't change too easy ya know", and he added, "(trying to cheer me up)."

Nam Tae Hyun also revealed that he was scared during the time of numerous controversies surrounding him.

so basically he reveals what all of us knew - YGE was bullshitting when they said that he was leaving due to mental problems

TRANSLATION ERROR!!!! it says "I knew i couldn't compete with TWICE, SicaLicka's wives, so i had to leave WINNER....also SicaLicka is very lucky to have such beautiful women in his life."

I like his honesty

I'm happy that he finally got to speak his piece. Everyone was speaking except for him until now. I'm also happy that he gave such mature (and some humorous) answers and didn't shade anyone. I'm still holding onto hope that someday OT5 will be seen together publicly again 🙏🏾 Nam Taehyun & South Club, hwaiting!
