In a recent interview with QQ Music, Ten talked about why he started diving in the first place and what he aims to do with it.

Ten explained that after WayV finished promotions for “Kick Back,” he had some free time and was looking for a new hobby when he came across diving!

After our promotion of ‘Kick Back,’ I had some free time so I was searching for a new hobby. And then I watched a video where the person in the video was dancing in the water. So it gave me an idea: in the future, I wish to do something similar. So I started to learn diving.

— Ten

The interviewer asked if being a dancer helped him learn diving, but Ten said it had more to do with his experience with swimming! As a child, Ten really loved swimming and so diving wasn’t that new of an experience for him.
