In a new Q&A video, So Yeon spoke candidly about viewers’ feedback, Korea’s beauty standards, her K-Pop group’s disbandment, and more.

“When I thought that I wasn’t good enough,” So Yeon said. “a lot of my international fans told me not to listen to those negative comments, and that they are there to support me. I get those messages through my [Instagram] DM or as story responses.” 

So Yeon appreciated her fans’ encouragement. “Those [messages] made me cry,” she said. “I actually cried that one time.” 

I was struggling because of all the hate comments in Korea. I was emotionally sensitive. Of course, I did have a lot of Korean fans that were cheering for me too, but I did not expect that from the international fans, you know?

At the end of the video, So Yeon sent a message to both her fans and her haters.

Those who didn’t like me, I hope this video can make you think that ‘You know what? She’s been through a lot.’ Don’t hate me too much, guys. I believe in those who do like me, and I will try my best to be better.
