During the show, Se7en revealed a story of how his name (Se7en) was chosen.
Back then, I realized that using my real name, Choi Dong Wook, as a solo artist was weak. So YG Entertainment’s president Yang Hyun Suk recommended to me that I use Se7en, but I didn’t quite like it. One day, I went to eat seolleongtang with him, and the dish only came with only seven pieces of radish kimchi. Yang Hyun Suk then told me, ‘Look at that, even the amount of radish kimchi is seven. Let’s just do Se7en.’ So I just decided to use Se7en.”
Quite a unique way to stumble upon a name, don’t you think?
