ITZY member Chaeryeong talked about the hardships she suffered because of malicious comments.
In the video, Chaeryeong confessed, “I really care about others’ attention. It wasn’t like this when I was young. I used to think that I am the prettiest when I was in elementary school. But that confidence went to the ground while preparing for my debut.”
In response, Lee Young-ji asked, “Was there any specific event?”. Chaeryeong said, “There were a lot. There was even a person who tried to stop me from making my debut. There are always a few people like that.”
“I always tried to think of others first. I took extra care of my reaction but such actions looked sarcastic to others”, Chaeryeong revealed how she was hurt by malicious comments.
She added, “I don’t care”. Lee Young-ji advised, “It doesn’t matter if you care. You can care, of course, as we are human, not an AI or a monster. But just know that you are an amazing person.”
