Jeon Somi’s Father Matthew Douma Responds To Reports Of Being Her Temporary Manager
Matthew Douma recently talked about appearing in “Real Men 300” and his daughter Jeon Somi.
On September 18, a press conference was held for the new MBC variety program “Real Men 300” at MBC Golden Mouth Hall in Seoul. Producing directors (PD) Choi Min Geun and Jang Seung Min, along with cast members Kang Ji Hwan, Matthew Douma, PENTAGON’s Hongseok, Kim Jae Hwa, Lee Yoo Bi, and Shinji were in attendance. In this season of “Real Men,” the cast members will undergo various tests and evaluations in order to become part of the elite “300 warriors” of the army.
During the event, Matthew Douma talked about appearing in a variety show for the first time, stating, “This was a new challenge in my life. Before I left, I did a lot of exercise preparations, but of course, it wasn’t enough. I had the hardest time during the guerrilla training. After training with my colleagues, I was pleased that we were able to make it to the end. Rather than experiencing military life, I was able to see the limits of my physical health.”
He also cheered on his daughter Jeon Somi and stated, “[Jeon Somi] told me to not be the first one to come out of the CBR [chemical, biological, radiological] room, and said that she believed in me, her dad.”
When asked about Jeon Somi’s future plans, he said, “Somi’s activities are Somi’s concerns. They are completely separate from me. The [reports] that I am Somi’s manager are false rumors.”
He continued, “Somi finished her last JYP activities and returned from Germany. We’re going to spend this Chuseok together with the family and think about what she will do from now on. I do give her advice as a parent, but because I’m not an expert, I can’t do much.”
Jeon Somi had previously terminated her exclusive contract with JYP Entertainment in August.
“Real Men 300” will premiere on September 21 at 9:55 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the trailer for the show below!
