Na In Woo Reveals He Used to be a Trainee Under JYP Entertainment
On August 10, actor Na In Woo made a special guest appearance on KBS Cool FM's "Raise The Volume With Hanna Kang."
While on the program, he revealed that he was previously training to be an idol under JYP Entertainment.
He revealed that he trained alongside GOT7 members Jinyoung and Jay B during his time as a trainee, who he affectionately called hyungs. He also trained alongside B.A.P member Youngjae, whom he also called hyung.
Na In Woo also stated that he trained with TWICE member Jeongyeon, commenting that while he was a trainee under JYP Entertainment, he practiced alongside many who became singers now.
Na In Woo revealed he chose to abandon his dream of becoming an idol when he was 19 years old, during winter vacation.
After leaving JYP Entertainment, he wondered what he should do with his life and shared his resolve to have a dream since he was becoming an adult at that time.
He decided to become an actor after encouraging himself to take risks in his life and to not miss out on the chance while he was young.
DJ Hanna Kang then asked the male actor, "You are good at playing instruments, singing, and acting. Do you have any desire to release an album?"
At this, Na In Woo said he would be up to do so if he was given the opportunity.
Na In Woo has showed off his vocal skills before. He made his debut as a musical actor in 2013, performing in the musical "Flower Boy Vegetable Shop."
As he is currently under CUBE Entertainment, he could potentially release music in the past, as the company specializes in idols.
