The pair had debuted together as 1PUNCH, but had gone their separate ways. During One's debut media day, he was asked about Samuel Kim. He said, "I couldn't watch all of 'Produce 101' because I was busy preparing for my debut. But I hope he does well."
He added, "I haven't talked to him personally. However, my manager contacted Samuel's mother, and I talked to her to relay my support to him."
One will be debuting later today at 6PM KST on the 11th, and Samuel Kim will be debuting on August 2nd.
