We’ve met a lot of different people along the way, and that experienced helped me understands the members and others more. I definitely learned how to be considerate after debuting.”

Shes also continued, “Living in the dorm with nine members entails consideration. Everything would fall apart if even one person isn’t considerate, but all our members are so kind and i learned a lot from them. Even thought were doing the same work, i see how a member thinks positively about something in certain ways. Or someone who can think of something that way that i would never have thought of before, i learn things like that while being with the other member.”

Jeong Yeon also talked honestly about her most natural state, she said, “I don’t know if it was okay to say this, but my appearance when i show up at the salon after washing up my hair and going to bed at the night before is my true self. My appearance with disheveled hair and no makeup is exactly like me.” She added more, “The looks on the faces of the makeup artist when they see me like that.” and laughed.

She further opened up about her personality, saying that she always asks someone for advice before making a decision. She expressed her deepest desire to become more like her fellow member Chae Yeong, because of her decisive and free nature. But when she was asked if she would go to Chae Yeong for advice, she answered humorously:

“Chae Young doesn’t say much about matters that don’t interest her. If i asked her, ‘ I want to do this, what do you think?’ she would just say, ‘Do everything you wanted to do.’ She does everything she wants, which is why she tells me ‘It’s okay, do it all.’ It is important to empathized when giving an advice, i go to all members except for her.”
