4minute Members Discuss the Difficulties of Being Idols
On the recent episode of tvN’s “Baek Ji Yeon’s People Inside,” which was aired on May 29, group 4minute explained how hard it is to be an idol.
The youngest member Kwon So Hyun stated, “Idols begin their career at very early ages. Because of this, they lose their innocence early and grow up very fast.”
She continued, “I myself have lost a lot of immaturity. There were things that my friends could feel that I couldn’t. I learned at an early age what it is like to live in the real world among adults. I missed out on school field trips and after-school activities. When my friends were having fun, I had to train.”
Jeon Jiyoon also added, “When I talk to my friends, the subjects I am interested in are very different than what my friends find interesting. They also think very differently. I felt sad, because we led such different lives with vastly different problems.”
