    Samuel is Korean and Mexican confirmed. His cousin posted a pic with him on Instagram. Nicholas (his cousin) is half Filipino and Mexican, also has the same last name (Arredondo). So, I’m guessing both their fathers are Mexican because the children usually take the dads last name.

  • Cecil17

    samuel and overrated. god i hate that word-

  • MintY.CookY

    His K-Pop female Idol crush is Jisoo from BLACKPINK

  • Hanna Mae Abong

    Samuel is not fluent in Chinese but he can speak well in Spanish. Proven during “The Collaboration” where he was able to communicate well with a Spanish-speaking instructor. Samuel even had a hard-time during the competition since he doesn’t speak Chinese fluently that’s why he chose Zhou Zhennan (an English-Speaking Chinese) as his partner during the collab. I think the editor should watch the said competition.

  • Kathy101

    He goes to Hanlim Multi Art School now

  • tinytink

    Samuel is not fluent in Chinese. He is fluent in Spanish though. When he went on The Collaboration, he could only communicate to the others using english and a few basic Chinese phrases. But he has shown multiple times that he speaks Spanish, notably when he met a Spanish speakers on The Collaboration, and they were able to chat comfortably in Spanish.

  • karla medellin

    he said he’s father is hispanic

  • Violet V2

    But doesn’t that mean he’s Korean Hispanic not Korean Mexican

  • Rea

    In an episode of “Idol Room”:
    > He dreams in Korean when he was in Korea and dreams in Chinese when in China.

  • Katalina

    I think his good at singing and honestly a great dancer but when it comes to girls he only date the one who has a good body I think that’s just something he should think about cause not all girls have good body..!

  • Cashmere

    He should have joined seventeen i bet he would be the maknae or lead vocal, but i guess he has his reasons, sad that such opportunity can’t have

  • Annalyce Sproat

    HE TOOK MY UwU!!!

  • Cyrup

    I believe that he wasnt able to join them because he was too young since I guess the company believed that he would appear too young for future concepts the company was holding in store for Seventeen. That’s what I heard online.
