On top of that, Joon started a master’s degree on Global Culture Content at the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies. A representative of his agency (Planet05) commented, "Kim Joon has taken an interest in spreading Korean culture after he was able to meet with various international fans and after being named as an honorary ambassador of Global Tourism Etiquette. He wants to study the production of Hallyu culture content and its spread on a deeper level." On 16 May, Kim along with T-Max members, appeared on 1 vs. 100 on KBS2 to raise funds for the establishment of an ‘invincible baseball’ team. He advanced to the final 2, but did not win.
