During TXT's debut showcase, HUENINGKAI explained, "I was born in the United States and moved to China when I was little, and came to Korea. My father is American and my mom is Korean."

He went on, "My father promoted as a singer in China, so I naturally approached music. My family did get concerned since I came to Korea for the first time after living abroad for a long time. I thought Big Hit Entertainment suits me well, so I auditioned and ended up making my debut."

He continued, "I got more comfortable with Korean culture as I get to learn the language. Our members took good care of me."
