Idol School’s Dark Horse Candidate Lee Sae Rom Is Someone You Should Be Watching

Lee Sae Rom came into Mnet‘s Idol School as a virtually unknown contestant, but she’s slowly becoming a fan favorite.

When her profile was first released, she gained a lot of attention for her visuals.

Motto: “Happiness is a habit.”

It turns out, before joining idol school, Lee Sae Rom was a model!

And appeared in a promotional video for Korea customs service.

She was also a contestant on Dancing 9, where she showcased her incredible dancing skills.

But because of her relatively unknown status, she didn’t debut in the top 10 rankings when the pilot episode aired.
