SISTAR’s Dasom Says She Always Reads the News No Matter How Busy or Tired She Is


SISTAR member Dasom revealed that her nickname is “general idea idol.”

Dasom recently appeared on KBS’s “1 vs. 100” where she talked about being a “general idea idol.” She said, “No matter how busy I am, I always read the news, and I have a lot of interest in current events. When I finish with my schedule for the day, no matter how tired I am, I always read the news on the internet for society/community, economy, politics, and global news.”

Host Han Seok Joon asked her if there is a reason she got interested in current events, at which Dasom replied, “During college, when I went on a trip with my old friends from middle school, someone asked me what the minimum wage was, and I had no idea. I didn’t really know much about the world, and I thought I should know, so I started to get some interest.”

She said,  a little shy, that she has shallow knowledge and interest, but eventually showing her resolution, saying that she has been keeping up with the news for a while and that she would turn that effort into skill for the game. 

The episode of “1 vs. 100” featuring Dasom airs on January 21.
