[TOURNAMENT] Match 1: Mamamoo vs BlackpinkPosted by Koreaboo on Tuesday, May 23, 2017
On the show, host Kim Seong Joo asked Seolhyun whether anything had changed after she became one of the top trending celebrities in the industry. With so many endorsements, including Kloud Beer, Sprite, Buckaroo Jeans, and more, Seolhyun has become one the most common faces to see on TV and billboards. But in response to Kim Seong Joo’s question, Seolhyun replied,
To be honest, nothing has really changed. I don’t particularly stand out in a crowd, and people don’t really recognize me. When I head home, I usually take public transport, and I visit cafes regularly.
Upon hearing her surprising answer, Kim Seong Joo followed up with another question, asking her if she actually wanted people to start recognizing her. As professional and insightful as ever, Seolhyun answered,
I’m not worried about me being uncomfortable when being recognized; I am more worried there will be a lack of public order if people start recognizing me.
