Kim So Hee has opened up about a tragic experience she had with her previous management company. The 22-year-old singer revealed her former agency head had proposed to her.
During an episode of KBS's Idol Drama Operation Team through Naver TV, she said: "At the agency I was housed under previously, the label head saw me as a woman. I was so scared that I couldn't even reject him outright."
"When there was a schedule I had to attend to, he would have me sit in the passenger's seat beside him and drive me around. He even sincerely proposed to me, saying, 'Let's get married.' I think you have to experience these sorts of situations if you want to debut," she added.
Previously, the I.B.I member revealed she went through a tough time during her training days. The singer, who failed to make it into the final IOI girl band, stated that she fell apart after the unfortunate news.
During her interview with 'International bnt', So Hee shared some insights into her initial days of training. She said: "I was a trainee since a year ago. I prepared to debut under a different agency from Music Works, but that fell through. It was very hard for me when my chance to debut fell through. I started living apart from my family two years ago in Seoul in order to prepare to be a singer. I was a part-time worker as a waitress at a braised short ribs store, and I remember that it was really hot."
While the songstress was not able to make it to final 11 of IOI, So Hee became quite popular among the fans after her incredible performance with EXO's Call Me Baby. Sharing her views on her popularity and the ideal type, the singer told the magazine: "I was not popular with male students during my school days, but now, there are fans who support me, so I'm grateful. "
"Even when filming ends late at daybreak, they are people who wait for me and for whom I'm thankful. Somebody who has a good personality and works diligently like actor Kang Ha Neul is my ideal type. I want to see him in real life," she concluded.
