Sunmi once visited South Korean students who dream of becoming idols, and her sweet interactions with them have us extremely soft!
In “Idol trainee’s kids meet Sunmi” on kizzle‘s YouTube channel, Sunmi surprised K-Pop idol trainees. She greeted the trainees with hugs and even let them speak informally to her!
Sunmi even danced some of her “Heroine” choreography with one of the trainees!
After getting to know the trainees, Sunmi asked them about their life as a trainee. One of the trainees revealed that she feels extremely pressured and has even cried in the car because she’s so tired.
Sunmi sweetly told the girl not to worry about being perfect and told her to make memories with her friends instead of stressing too much about trainee life.
One trainee opened up about the pain of living apart from her dad. She lives with her mother and older brother, and her father lives alone. The girl revealed she can’t enjoy trainee life because she doesn’t want her mother to have to work.
Sunmi empathized with the girl’s story and revealed that her parents lived separately while she was growing up, too.
Sunmi revealed that she put pressure on herself to succeed as soon as possible, so her family could escape poverty. Sunmi told the trainee she was “so upset” that she was facing the same struggles she faced.
Sunmi gently told the trainee to focus on what she likes and to do her best. She encouraged the girl by telling her the kizzle video they first met in would resurface after she makes her debut as a K-Pop idol.
One of the trainees revealed he felt happier after meeting Sunmi, so it looks like Sunmi’s sweet encouragement and advice made a difference!
