Favorite Female Idols: Lee Chaerin

“People all around the world think that being different is wrong. Like, I don’t understand. You’re unique. I love being myself and love people who are themselves and just, you know, "I’m doing me” type of people. I have respect and love for them, but some people don’t understand that.“ 

“A girl of the resistance movement is a member of a patrol to rout out the Germans snipers still left in areas in Paris, France, on August 29, 1944. The girl had killed two Germans in the Paris Fighting two days previously.”



Favorite Female Idols: Park Bom

“While I was in the US for ten years studying abroad, I gave up everything to come back to Korea and become a singer. For three years I got rejected, but I never gave up until the end. And even though I came this far, it was very tough, but I never gave up on my dream. I don’t remember even having one moment where I felt like I wanted to give up.”


The Liberation of Paris

After an uprising by the French Resistance and days of street fighting, Paris is liberated as German occupiers surrender to Allied forces seventy years ago on August 25, 1944.

Favorite Female Idols: Gong Minji

“Rather than taking an easy route, taking a difficult route is more satisfying and interesting. Life is hard at times; life is easy at other times. It zig zags and spins round and round. It goes up and down… When all that is done, you’ll probably smile and say, “I lived a very fun life” ke ke.”


Favorite Female Idols: Kim Hyojung

“I don’t think there is an answer to, ‘Why do they like me?’ or ‘Why do they hate me?’. If you listen to all the differing comments , there are hurtful opinions, but if you let that get to you, you can’t continue in this line of work. I would like to request that you don’t base your opinion thinking that what you see on camera is all there is. I’m always hopeful people look at us with a ‘look of love’ rather than a ‘hawkish stare’.”
