Lee Yoo Jin recently sat down for an interview to discuss his acting career and music ambitions.
Among one of the topics discussed was his time as a trainee on “Produce 101 Season 2.” The actor, who debuted in 2013, was talked about while appearing on the survival program because he was a trainee from an acting agency.
On “Produce 101 Season 2,” Lee Yoo Jin had to dorm with 100 other trainees. He recalled a memory from his experience staying with them, saying, “In the beginning, everyone had brought a lot of clothes because they wanted to look good. Later on, they brought a bunch of food rather than clothes. [The show] was so exhausting that it was hard to endure with just three meals a day. I even ate seven meals a day.”
Lee Yoo Jin talked about the special friendship he has with the other trainees of the show. He said, “They call me after seeing my drama, and we encourage each other. I especially stay in touch with Yoon Ji Sung often, and I told him to hurry up and watch ‘Age of Youth 2.’ He said he’s watching it now.”
Lee Yoo Jin was eliminated in the middle of the show, and he is currently producing music under the name Nay_kid. He recently acted in the JTBC drama “Age of Youth 2” as well. He is also planning on officially releasing an album later on.
