Heo Young Ji Reveals One Way Idols Manage To Date Without Cellphones
Heo Young Ji has shared some insight into how idols date, even while being heavily monitored by their agencies!
The May 12 episode of MBC every1’s “South Korean Foreigners” was a “girl group by generation” special, featuring Chakra’s Hwangbo, Cleo’s Chae Eun Jung, T-ara’s Qri, and KARA’s Heo Young Ji as guests.
During the show, the four ladies discussed the strict rules idols have to follow that are enforced by their agencies. Qri shared, “When I was a rookie, I had to monitor my weight, and my phone was taken away the day before our debut.” Chae Eun Jung and Hwangbo immediately shared that they could relate, both confirming that their phones were also taken away.
Chae Eun Jung then surprised everyone by remarking, “However, even if you don’t have a cellphone, everyone still dates.” When asked how that was possible, Hwangbo responded, “Among the members, at least one has to have a phone. They would call that member, and we’d just pass the phone.” She added with a laugh, “I’m not saying I did that.”
Heo Young Ji chimed in, “In our time, there was also this. When you got your phone taken away, you could connect your MP3 player to the internet and download messenger apps for chatting.”
