Even after a week of finishing the show, fans are continuing their petition because Samuel Kim was not able to make the Top 11 that would ultimately lead to a debut as 'Wanna One'. Amongst the trainees, he was one of the top prospects in making the cut but shocked the viewers when he failed to make the group.

Samuel Kim stated he heard about the petition, "I heard about it. I was thankful that fans were sincerely disappointed for me that I didn't make the group. Every message and every letter really uplifts and strengthens me. But this isn't the end but rather a start so please continue to support me and watch me grow".

He also looked back at the experience during the show, "When I received a lower end of the grade in the 'Get Ugly' team, I was surprised, to be honest. But I looked back at what I could improve". When asked if he would participate in another season if given a chance, he replied that it would be a good experience but would be difficult as trying to survive amongst many trainees is extremely hard. He continued, "Out of everyone, I only knew NU'EST so I thought it would be awkward but it was a new refreshing life and it was a good memory".

Samuel Kim recalled his happiest moment during the show as well, "When I received an 'A' grade and was in second place amongst the 101 trainees, that was definitely my happiest moment. Before the competition, I thought I could come in first but when I arrived, there were many talented individuals that made me nervous. But coming in second despite all that is something that stays with me deeply. That's when I thought hard work truly pays off".

Samuel Kim is expected to make his solo debut in August with the help of Brave Entertainment.

His fans were so pressed when he didn't make it lmao. Good thing he has a solo coming though, he's so young yet faced so many hardships, I really hope he does well.

Poor kid, he suffered from lack of storyline and his visuals didn't seem to appeal to the Korean public. I hope he slays his solo, he deserves all the best!

Yeah good to hear that. He deserved better! even though i still don't get it why he's not even make it into the group, well top 11 on the list at least!.. to be honest when the final result were announced, i was like what is wrong with the producers!.. but Yeah! that is the reality of the show.. still! thanks that everyone knows that he's very talented and he proved it. i believe he will show us more of his charms after this. let's continue to support him.👍💪
