SISTAR’s Hyorin Played a Big Role in Helping Lift Soyu’s Low Self-Esteem


Fashion magazine Grazia released a beauty pictorial featuring SISTAR’s Soyu. The concept of the pictorial was the style trends that the singer is most known for, like fake tattoos, fake piercings, pop nails, and lacquer lips.

In the corresponding interview, Soyu opened up about her reputation as being very confident. She shared, “Some people even say ‘Soyu’s gotten cocky.’”

Surprisingly, she revealed that she was not always confident, “A while ago I had a fear of the camera. I really hated whenever the camera did a close-up of me. I thought ‘I’ll for sure come out super weird’ and ‘People will see this and criticize [me] again.’”

She continued, “I had so many thoughts that I kept hiding in the background, but now I changed my mentality to, ‘I look like this, so what can I do about it? My mom gave birth to me this way.’ I learned to accept myself.”


Soyu shared that the biggest influence in helping her cultivate a positive mindset was fellow member Hyorin, “Hyorin unni is very strong mentally. I think through spending time with her I received a lot of positive influence. She tries to trust herself and not get weak easily.”

She continued, “What’s really peculiar is that after I changed my mentality, I feel like all of a sudden everything started working out. So I always try to think positive thoughts.”
