This season, American Idol was blessed with its kookiest contestant ever — 22-year-old Heejun Han. But while it appeared the show was just fun and games to Heejun until he was eliminated, he actually says the experience was so difficult, he would never try out again.

"People don't realize how hard this is. I really didn't want to be hated by other people... I was kind of losing myself," he says.

We sat down with Heejun to talk about why he tried out in the first place (he never thought he had a good voice), who he thinks will win and which judge he'd want as a running mate if he ran for president. Check out the video below:
