When Pledis held auditions in America, back in 2009, Aaron participated and came in first place. His unique voice captivated the judges and was casted immediatly. Since he had done well in school since his youth, his parents saw this as an inconvenience and grew worried. However, even with his acceptance into New York University’s journalism department, they could no longer restrain their son and had to let him go his separate way.
“I never had a dream to become a singer. Upon my parents’ advice, I became immersed in my studies in high school. However, after I was accepted into a good university, there was no longer anything holding me back from wanting to become a singer. I want to return the favor with such a successful image.“ – Aron
