Yoo So-Young Reveals Her Reasons For Leaving After School
The group After School now only has four members remaining, seven of them have already left. This is one reason they chose to take a break from the world of Korean entertainment.
Not long ago, a poll appeared for Korean girl-groups who have been taking a long break and are expected to immediately re-entertain their fans. The group, which debuted on January 15, 2009, is one of the long list.
Now, the former member of After School, Yoo So-Young, revealed her reason for leaving the group that contributed to raising her name. She pointed out in the “Every1’s Video Star” program broadcast by MBC on Tuesday (31/7) yesterday.
Apparently, the woman born on March 29, 1986, had a serious health problem. “I have a health problem that is not possible for me to be there,” she said. Yoo So-Young also feels that her passion is not in the music field. “I was in the entertainment world because I wanted to channel the acting talents that I had learned so far, singing is not my true talent,” she continued.
When starting out with After School, Yoo So-Young was still fairly young, 23 years old. At that productive age she felt it was the right decision to choose to pursue an acting career.
“When I was 23, I immediately decided to pursue a career in acting,” said the woman who had a role in “Every1’s Video Star”. “I’m afraid I won’t get that opportunity when I’m getting older.”
Yoo So-Young also revealed the difficulty of doing some of the dance moves. The former member she deems senior, Kahi, has a different standard of dance from the other members.
“She is a dancer and we cannot follow her movements, making it difficult for me,” she concluded.
After leaving After School, Yoo So-Young’s name faded slightly and she reportedly found it hard to find work outside the entertainment world. In fact, she tried to enter an application in a cafe to work part time and, unfortunately, the application was rejected.
