He candidly expressed his motivation, stating, “The reason I left dance is for my love for money. I want to be very honest. Dance is something that I love.

But I’m not sure dance can give me the kind of money I want. Even if you want to make it so gangster-like and there are so many people bumping, you still need to use the dancers. So, as they work together, I think for the love of money, I’d rather be singing.”
