Starship Trainees Jeong Sewoon And Lee Gwang Hyun From “Produce 101 Season 2” Talk About Dealing With Sudden Fame
Starship Entertainment trainees Jung Se Woon and Lee Gwang Hyun from “Produce 101 Season” took part in a photo shoot with fashion magazine Singles.
To fit the concept of the photo shoot, “two boys on a busking trip,” the two trainees wore outfits that ranged from a boyish look to a more sophisticated look of a grown man.
Jung Se Woon said in an interview that followed, “‘Produce 101 Season 2’ was like an exam with essay questions. Like preparing and reviewing for a test, every moment was a challenge. I feel regretful about the final live broadcast because I wasn’t able to show more of myself, and it’s a moment that won’t ever come back.”
Regarding his self-composed songs that were well-received by the public, he said, “The ability of a singer-songwriter depends on their effort, which is a great talent in itself. I have to express myself in unfamiliar surroundings and try not to cower away from challenges.”
Lee Gwang Hyun stated, “I’m practicing singing, rapping, and dancing, but I still feel like I’m lacking. After appearing ‘Produce 101’ though, my vague dream became clearer. It was an opportunity for me to learn a lot and grow.”
With their rising popularity, it must not be easy to stay grounded. Jung Se Woon shared,” I try not to get too excited. The only way to repay the people I’m thankful for is to work hard. At first, it felt so unnatural that I couldn’t even search my last name [on portal sites]. But now, I calmly monitor [posts about myself] to find out what I should improve on.”
Similarly, Lee Gwang Hyun said, “I’m still surprised that there are people who recognize me. I feel thankful.”
Meanwhile, Jung Se Woon and Lee Gwang Hyun’s full pictorial will be included in the August edition of Singles.
