On January 29, Baek Ji Young was one of the guests on “Strong Heart” where she was asked about the rumors of discord between herself and junior artist Seo In Young.
She started off by saying, “I hated how she acted too cute and I hated her because of her barbie doll-like body,” and “But when I actually talked to her, I realized that she wasn’t a bad person.” But she added that it wasn’t easy to change feelings just like that.
Baek Ji Young then proceeded to share about the incident when she made Seo In Young cry. She said, “I was sharing a waiting room with singer Lyn when Seo In Young came to our room. Seo In Young and Lyn are really close so they started to chat together. I didn’t say anything to Lyn but to Seo In Young I said, ‘Hey, I don’t think you’re in the position to be coming in here and chatting up a storm.’ Then Seo In Young apologized and said she would talk outside. I heard from my manager that she was actually crying when she stepped out of my room.”
Baek Ji Young explained, “At the time, my vocal condition was not great so I was really stressed. I just got momentarily mad without knowing but I think that became a scar to In Young.” She added, “Afterwards, we ran into each other at a party. She came up to me and said, ‘Senior, please like me,’ and when she said that, she seemed so nice. So I started to feel really embarrassed as a senior. I gave her a hug and told her I wouldn’t be mean to her from then on.”
This story grabbed many viewers’ attentions since Seo In Young is known to be quite a fierce character on TV!
