The Only Culture Shock LE SSERAFIM’s Yunjin Faced After Moving To South Korea

The hosts helped her understand it better.

LE SSERAFIM members Sakura and Yunjin appeared as guests on the latest episode of Psick Show, and as expected, hilarious chaos ensued.

During one of the segments, the show’s host asked both members about adjusting to life in Korea. Sakura grew up in Japan and promoted as a J-Pop idol since she was 12 years old. In 2018 she moved to Korea, appeared on the survival show Produce48, and joined the final lineup of IZ*ONE. At this time, she was promoting in Korea and Japan simultaneously. But with IZ*ONE’s disbandment, she joined HYBE Labels in 2021 and graduated from HKT48. Eventually, she made her third debut with LE SSERAFIM in 2022.

Yunjin, on the other hand, was born in Korea but spent most of her life in the United States. According to the idol herself, her family moved around a lot. So, she has lived in California, Chicago, and mostly, New York.

In 2018 Yunjin moved to South Korea and became a trainee under Pledis Entertainment. She was also a participant in Produce 48. In 2021, she signed a contract with Source Music and debuted in LE SSERAFIM the following year.

When the Psick Show hosts asked the two about their difficulties while adjusting to living in Korea, Yunjin said since she has been in the country for so long, she doesn’t feel anything is too radically different. But later, when they started talking about MBTI types, she remembered her one culture shock after moving to Korea.

The hosts were pretty skeptical of the accuracy of MBTI types when they brought up another personality metric- blood type. Before MBTI became a trending topic in South Korea, people used to believe that a person’s blood type reveals all critical aspects of their personality. So, technically, South Koreans believed there could be only four types of personalities among all human beings.

Yunjin mentioned that when she moved to Korea, she was shocked to see that people paid so much importance to one’s blood type. When both guests expressed their doubts about the accuracy of this method, host Kim Min Soo took it upon himself to prove otherwise.

He and his fellow host Jung Jae Hyung offered some moderately accurate descriptions of Yunjin and Sakura’s personalities based on their B and A blood types, respectively.

Finally, host Lee Yong Joo added the last nail to the coffin by pointing out that MBTI is subject to change, but blood types are not. Yunjin ended up admitting that she was convinced about this method’s accuracy.
