Wanna One‘s Kang Daniel admitted that before Produce 101 he was planning on running away to Canada because he didn’t like being a trainee.
Kang Daniel appeared on MBC’s Radio Star with fellow members Park Woojin and Ong Seongwu and BIGBANG‘s Seungri.
“Things were not good for my management company during my trainee days. There were only basement exercise rooms and we didn’t even have any dance lessons. I didn’t think I would be able to debut like that, so I was planning on going to Canada.” — Kang Daniel
He revealed that Produce 101 was a last ditch effort to become an idol.
“My aunt lived in Canada so I was preparing my passport. But I got an offer to appear on Produce 101 so I thought I should give it one last try.” — Kang Daniel
He did such a good job that he hit it big and is now part of one of the most popular bands in K-Pop!
