Winter and Karina were shooting a self-cam segment, where they started talking about stage names! Karina then revealed that she actually had another stage name as a possible contender for her debut!

Actually, I had another one. There were two.


Karina then talked about her other stage name, revealing it to be “Baekseol” (“Snow White”)! After revealing the name, she then teased Winter for her fair skin, connecting it to her almost-stage name, and the two burst out laughing!

I almost became “Baekseol” [Snow White]. Since she’s so white, like Snow White…


Whether she’s Karina or “Baekseol”, either way, fans would love her anyway!
