Ever since her appearance on the 2015 survival reality program Sixteen, singer Jeon Somi has become known for her bubbly personality. Her enthusiasm and extroverted tendencies continued to be showcased through Produce 101, as well as other variety show programs.
After watching Somi grow up in front of the public on television, it’s no wonder that everyone became accustomed to her charming personality—and this was re-displayed in a recent fan service photo that the singer participated in.
Recently, a Somi fan uploaded a photo of themself and the singer, along with a caption that explained the entire situation to their followers. The photo itself caused quite a commotion since it clearly shows Somi posing for not just a normal photo, but a photo that was taken in a photobooth!
While this alone showed off her warm personality, it was the caption provided by the fan that really detailed the extent of Somi’s true personality.
Today was the happiest day of my life and I think I will remember for the rest of my life! I ran into Jeon Somi unnie, a celebrity that I have always liked. We chatted and took pictures together. It was such a good time. It will be my most memorable moment~~

As this post began to go viral online, another netizen posted a photo they had taken with Jeon Somi—even whenshe wasn’t “allowed to.” This netizen shared the story with their fellow Twitter users, revealing that they had run into the singer randomly and had asked for a picture with the star. While she initially denied the request, Jeon Somi quickly went against her word by sharing, “let’s just cherish this between us then!!.”

Somi is so good at taking pictures with fans…
When I was in high school, I saw Somi’s family at a station and wondered huh…could it be…? While I was pondering, I asked her if we could take a picture together, but she responded that she wasn’t allowed to because her agency told her she couldn’t…but then she said, ‘actually, let’s just cherish this between us then!!’ and then she took a photo with me. After seeing the selfies, I noticed that Matthew (Somi’s father) was in the background doing the peace sign too.

Along with the caption, “it’s been 6 years now, so it should be fine if I upload these…” the netizens shared the adorable photo of themselves, Somi, and Somi’s father (in the back).
