The interviewer from Men’s Health Korea asked Solar “Your parents were against you becoming a singer, right? And that made it tougher for you during your traineeship.”

Solar’s answer was both heartbreaking and inspiring.

I come from a pretty scholastic family. So my parents wanted me to pursue studying. When I told them I want to do music, they cut off all support. I had to take care of myself. But that paid off because now I’m really good at setting my own goals and pushing myself to achieve those. It’s a process that I’m all too familiar with.

The interview then continued with the interviewer saying “And so now you’ve reached peak as a singer. Is there anything you’d like to say to trainees who are aspiring to become the next MAMAMOO, the next Solar?”

Before sharing her answer, Solar humbly responded with “Actually, I think I’m still on my way to the top.”

She then shared her advice.

…I want to tell them to endure and never give up. Just hang in there a little longer and you will come across an opportunity. It’s important to know that moment is coming.
