Another week and that means only one thing - Prince Mak is back on SBS PopAsia radio with "The Prince Mak Hour."

In the latest episode of his radio show, Prince Mak opens up about his time as a K-pop idol following a fan question about whether he regrets being an idol. 

While he doesn't regret his 2 and a half years as an idol, Prince Mak does say that he wishes that he did a few things differently during his time. But the biggest reality he faced as a K-pop idol was the lack of money earned in the early years of his career, and this was despite having a constant stream of work in various things, such as MCing and hosting.

The constant hours of work also had a toll on Prince Mak's health, having endured various injuries and illnesses during his time as an idol. While he doesn't regret being an idol, not to mention that he managed to learn a lot in his 2 or so years, Prince Mak did reveal that of all the K-pop idols he knows, about half of them have confessed to regretting being an idol.
