On October 16, Sulli posted the latest teaser for the program on her Instagram. In the clip, she talks about her stage name as she gets her hair done, saying, “In the beginning, I had to unwillingly use the name ‘Sulli.'” She makes a dissatisfied face as she exclaims, “I really didn’t like it! When my family or close friends would call me ‘Sulli,’ I’d ask them, ‘Why are you calling me Sulli?’ It’s a long story.” Sulli’s given name is Choi Jinri.
In response to the clip, Sulli added a caption that jokingly said, “Evil editing? [Laugh] I only disliked it in the beginning.”
Sulli previously talked about her personal struggles in another teaser for the show.
