WINNER Seungyoon recently unveiled what he would have been if he didn't debut as a singer.
WINNER Seungyoon Shares What He Would Become If He Is Not a Singer
On the June 17 broadcast of MBC's "Late Night Ghost Talk," Kang Seungyoon of YG Entertainment group WINNER appeared as a guest. As the title of the show implies, the hosts and the guest talk about the scariest horror stories submitted by viewers.
WINNER Seungyoon was the first ghost storyteller on the latest episode. He told the story of "Gokseong Grandma's Pension Office." It was a story about someone who went to a pension office run by an old woman in Gokseong. They were told not to enter room 104 and were almost taken away by a ghost.
During the talks, WINNER member Seungyoon confessed that he gets afraid when listening to ghost stories.

Kang Seungyoon then commented on the situation of the story. He said that whenever someone tells him: "don't touch this/that," "don't go in there," and "don't do this/that," he would always obey them.
Because he always follows what he is told, his mother would tell him "Our Seungyoon is a good listener."
WINNER Seungyoon later surprised the hosts by revealing that if he was not a singer at present, he would have had a different job. The idol said that he would have become a shaman.
For starters, a shaman or a healer is a person deemed as having access to the world of good and evil spirits, hence, giving them the chance to interact with supernatural beings.
