TVXQ's Max Changmin listed a group of people who are prominent stars now but never made it through SM's auditions many years ago.
On the February 26 broadcast of KBS2's Moonlight Prince, Yoo In Na and Secret's Han Sunhwa appeared as guests to answer a quiz on the teenage book of poetry, I'm Red.
Max Changmin started on the subject when he said, "Sometimes I believe that our company (SM) missed many talents like Ms. Han Sunhwa."
While telling his story, Max Changmin opened up on who had tried their hand at becoming an SM trainee.
"It missed Ms. Han Sunhwa, and it also missed Ms. Goo Hara. Mr. Won Bin also auditioned at SM once," he said to a shocked audience.
Netizens commented, "So Won Bin almost became an idol group member," "I never knew" and "I can't imagine Won Bin trying to get through an audition."
