I see people asking why Sohye is being supported and I’m just disappointed how they refuse to acknowledge the obvious answer:
Inspiration is something this generation needs. Most teens struggle with trying things they want to do in fear of not being as good as the others so most just give up on it. We all know Sohye was on a completely different path, and I get that it’s unfair for the other trainees who trained for years to debut as I also think the same (and I also think she’d be better fit as an actress), but we can’t ignore the fact that Sohye has that star appeal some of them lack. She wasn’t afraid to humiliate herself in the auditions even knowing that her competition are 100 girls who are 100x better than her but she did it anyway. Teenagers could relate to her, I know some people got inspired to try because of that. The hidden message is that one is capable of doing the things others can do- if you work hard, you will get there. Seriously, how many of you would have the guts to do something terribly where you are being watched by tons of people who are experts and be judged by the whole nation? Bravery attracts admiration. AND DREAMS DO CHANGE.
Who are we to decide what Sohye can be?
