On the November 29 episode of On Dream School of KBS 2TV, Hyerim went to talk about one of the recent happenings she knew.
She also offered advice and encouragement to some high school students preparing for the CSAT or Korea’s annual college entrance exam.
She shared her personal experience as an idol trainee. Hyerim commented that ever since she was young, she loves singing and dancing every after school.
She spent more time singing and dancing in front of the mirror. Then came the dream of becoming a girl group member.
She heard that JYP was holding an audition in Hong Kong. Hyerim decided to try out and leave her friends and family and go to Korea by herself. She did that because she wanted to become a singer even if life gets more challenging.
However, Hyerim confessed that her time as a trainee was not good; none of it was happy and joyful.
She still remembers her first day as a trainee because it was Valentine’s Day in 2007. Hyerim even cried on her first day because she thought she is the prettiest and the best dancer.
As soon as she arrived in the practice room, everyone was much better than her and prettier.
Her self-esteem plummeted like a fish in a small pond that was moved to a vast ocean. Moreover, her story has a happy ending.
Despite feeling discouraged, Hyerim worked hard a lot as a trainee and successfully managed to debut as a member of Wonder Girls in 2010.
