Samuel on Produce 101
In 2017, Samuel participated in Produce 101 Season 2. He became a famous contestant, but sadly, in the final round, he was only ranked 18 with a vote of 391,529. So, he wasn’t able to debut with Wanna One. He once cried when he was eliminated from the competition.
He revealed that he thought he would make it to his debut through Produce 101. He also added that he was quite disappointed when he failed. He thought that he wouldn’t come this far, but he was given support from his friends, family, and also his fans. He had his own power to pass the hard times of Produce 101 and go far.
Samuel was a trainee for 5 years and 3 months. Right after Produce 101 Season 2 was over, his agency confirmed that he will solo debut with his mini-album Sixteen.

Samuel in Seventeen
Seventeen is a boy group raised under Pledis Entertainment where Samuel used to be a trainee before moving to Brave Entertainment. When Samuel was in Pledis Entertainment, he used to be a trainee with the other members of Seventeen.
The other members of Seventeen watched Samuel during his struggle on Produce 101 and gave him a lot of love and support. Seventeen’s Mingyu said that he was shocked after seeing the difference of Samuel. “When I saw him on the television, I realized that his voice had changed, and he became taller,” he added.
“I think Samuel literally did his best. Even since he was still a child, he already had passion. He showed us the passion that every child didn’t have,” Seventeen’s S.Coups stated.
