NCT's Jaemin Shares His Feelings About Sacrificing School And Social Life To Be An Idol

NCT’s Jaemin has revealed how he feels about giving up school to pursue his career as an idol.

On the January 17 episode of tvN’s “My English Puberty,” Jaemin talked about the difficulties of balancing celebrity life and education.

Jaemin remarked, “I attended school until seventh grade and then quit.” When Han Hyun Min then asked him if he had thought about attending school, Jaemin answered, “I’d like to attend school. I’m regretful, as there are social skills you can only learn in school. I don’t have any friends. Other than my members, I don’t have any.”

He commented, “It’s hard to enjoy both [celebrity life and school life]. If I were to choose one, I chose this career because being a singer was more important. I chose to take a break from school.”

In an interview with the production staff, Jaemin elaborated by saying, “After seventh period, that’s when you hang out with friends. But after my classes at school were over, I had to go straight to the practice room. So I wasn’t able to make friends then. I think it’s true when people say that your middle and high school friends are friends for life. I think that’s why I don’t have friends right now. To be honest, I am a bit regretful about that.”

The other members of the show asked Jaemin if he had told other people his age about his thoughts on the matter, and he replied, “All of the members know. It was my first time telling Han Hyun Min, who is my age, about this.” He added, “I like my members more than friends. I like that I can be with my members and depend on them.”

“My English Puberty 100 Hours” airs every Thursday at 8 p.m. KST.
