On the 30th of April, SM Entertainment ended the month off with a bang by holding a showcase for their new film, “I Am”, and current artists under the company, Sulli, Krystal and Hyoyeon, as well as Kangta drew attention for saying that they regretted joining SM many times.
“I lived in a dorm since I was in the fifth grade,” young Sulli stated. “I wanted to go home and I wanted to see my mom. My house was in Busan, and I was so upset that I could not go visit often.”
Fellow f(x) member Krystal also said, “I was so frustrated that we had to live and stay at the company every day.”
Even SNSD’s Hyoyeon explained, “I had to commute 3-4 hours, and it was hard on me at such a young age.”
Kangta, former H.O.T member who now happens to be a director at SM Entertainment, also stated that he regretted being in the company during his trainee days since times were extremely difficult and tiring. “We ordered Chinese noodles every other day, and we ate sausages as meals.” He also revealed that Tony was reprimanded for two entire days due to his ordering of japchae, a popular Korean dish of sweet potato noodles.
For more exciting, interesting and unexpected comments, catch the movie on the 10th of May!
