Weki Meki’s Choi Yoojung Talks About Frightening Time She Woke Up To Fire In Their Dorm
On the latest episode of Mnet’s “TMI News,” Weki Meki shared their alarming experience with a fire in their dorm!
The girl group appeared as guests on the March 4 broadcast of the variety show, where MCs Jun Hyun Moo and Jang Do Yeon asked them if they had any anecdotes to share. Jang Do Yeon added, “Since [our theme] is ‘TMI,’ it doesn’t have to be a big deal or anything particularly special.”
Kim Doyeon replied, “Actually, this is kind of a big deal, but a fire once broke out in our dorm.”
Choi Yoojung went on to elaborate, “Because my bed was the top bunk of a bunk bed, it was a hassle climbing up, so I once decided to lay out some blankets in the living room and sleep there instead. Lua and I fell asleep there together.”
“The next day, as soon as I opened my eyes,” she continued, “Lua suddenly screamed, ‘Unnie!’ As soon as I came to my senses and opened my eyes, I could see flames rising up on either side of me from where I was lying on the floor.”
Lua then shocked the MCs by demonstrating just how large the flames had been, and Choi Yoojung went on, “They told us to go to our agency’s building and stay there for the time being, so we all rushed there mindlessly. Then, when I looked in a full-length mirror there, I saw that there was a burnt hole in the head of my teddy-bear pajamas [where my head was].”
She added with a laugh, “I remember frantically asking the other members, ‘Guys, is my hair burnt?'”
Jun Hyun Moo asked when the incident had taken place, and Kim Doyeon revealed, “It was right after we debuted.”
Weki Meki recently made their comeback with the digital single “DAZZLE DAZZLE.” If you haven’t already seen it, you can check out their new music video for the song here!
