Singer Jeon So-mi confessed used to have the so-called “celebrity disease.”
Jeon So-mi appeared on the YouTube show “MMTG” on November 11th and honestly confessed about the “celebrity disease” she experienced after her debut. In general, “celebrity disease” means that celebrities take their status for granted and ask for special treatment because they have influence and popularity. This term is similar to the “diva attitude” term in the Western showbiz.
On this episode of MMTG, Jeon So-mi said, “In fact, after debuting as an I.O.I member, I used to have celebrity disease,” adding, “I think it happens to any celebrity. Because we get used to being taken care of,” she said.
She added, “I thought I had to look perfect because I have to work 365 days without a day off. So I took it for granted that people around me took care of me,” she said, “I didn’t realize asking for a favor and ‘Please do this for me’ are different. I was somehow ignorant like that,” she explained.
When Jae-jae, the host of MMTG asked, “When did you realize it?” Jeon So-mi said, “When I debut, rumors circulate once in a while. Regardless of whether it’s true or not, things like “they said she wouldn’t greet anyone” always went around,” she confessed.
“(I) am a Taekwondo person.A martial arts person. So I suddenly thought, “Did I act so out of my mind?” revealed the thing that encouraged her to cure the celebrity disease.
Meanwhile, Jeon So-mi showed off her new charm with her first full-length album “XOXO” on the 29th of last month.
