During the interview session, Kain shared about his old days before he debuted with ARGON. He expressed that he really liked being on stage and listening to the audience’s screams.
“I enjoyed standing on the stage because I could listen to the crowd’s screams,” said Kain.
Because of this exciting feeling, Kain then decided to debut as a K-Pop idol.
“I wanted to know what it would feel like if they screamed for me, so I decided to debut,” he said.
He then mentioned that he has been with Big Hit Entertainment for three years. Not as a trainee, but a dancer for BTS. He revealed that previously he has been involved in a series of BTS tours in several countries. It was during this time that Kain got a lot of experience in performing on stage.
“I got a lot of experience on stage when I was a BTS dancer during their world tour,” said Kain.
He proceeded to say thanks for the experience, his desire to be a K-Pop idol is getting stronger. He felt happy even though at that time he was only part of the BTS backup dancers.

When ARGON became a guest on MBC FM’s Idol Radio hosted by A-PINK’s Chorong and Hayoung, he also talked again about his experience as a BTS backup dancer.
“I started my dream to become a singer after working with BTS for their world tour. I respected their hard work and effort they put in for their performances. I hoped to also work hard like them if I ever became an idol. There were many times I would see them collapsing backstage. But they would always get right back up and put on another stellar performance,” he said, complimenting the group.
On the show, he even showed a few of his moves for the BTS choreography along with other members Yeoeun and Jaeun.
