It is unimaginable for us to think actors would want us to be at their awards show, let alone be fans of ours.

There are many injustices dancer’s have to endure. Once I had to use the restroom but was told the restroom was for singers only. I was so sad, as I am also human.

— Rian


So Yi Hyun and fellow dancer Gabee couldn’t hide their anger at the situation. However, So Yi Hyun reminded the dancers that fighting through these tough situations had molded them into who they are, and their strength will help them prevail in the industry.

Because your foundation for success is your hard work, your castles are not made of sand and will be able to prevail.
