Kim So Na, a former idol group’s backup dancer, shared her story of how she was approached by one of its members.
She first explained that her team’s choreographer strictly prohibited any dating between dancers and idols.
One day, however, one of the idol group members approached her and asked her to dance 1 on 1 with him.
She was unsure why, as there were no choreographies that required 1 on 1 dancing, nor were there any partner dances that they were learning.
Regardless, she practiced with the male idol 1 on 1, yet she couldn’t help but think that he was interested in her.
Shortly after, he KakaoTalk messaged So Na and invited her out to a cup of coffee, but asked her to keep it a secret.
She refused, saying that she had practice until late, and that she had to travel quite a distance to get back home.
Idol: Do you want to drink a cup of coffee with me after practice? Don’t tell anyone about this. It’s a secret just between you and me.
So Na: I can’t… After practice I have to go straight home because I live in Paju (a far-away city)…
Idol: Then I’ll drop you off, don’t worry ^^
The idol then offered to drive her home, to which she refused again with a made-up excuse of having been involved in an accident in someone else’s car.
So Na: I can’t do that…
So Na: I can’t ride other people’s cars… To be honest, I was involved in an accident in someone’s else’s car.
Idol: Then you can sit in the front seat so you can see everything that’s happening^^
Idol: The front seat is even more dangerous… I was sitting in the front seat when I was in the accident ㅠ_ㅠ
After several more rejections by So Na, the idol finally gave up on texting her and the two ended their conversation.
The next day at practice, however, So Na’s fellow backup dancers approached her and asked, “Did you personally contact that idol member?”
They explained that they’d overheard the idol staff talking about how So Na had personally contacted a member of the group and confessed that she liked him.
So Na was completely shocked at how the idol turned it around onto her, but chose not to report it because she didn’t want to inconvenience anyone.
Surprisingly, the idol ended up approaching a different backup dancer in her team after being rejected by So Na.
