They also signed on as models for cosmetics brand “The Saem“, for which they must attend fan signings and various other events as a part of their endorsement duties.

Her professional obligations aside, UEE’s been receiving acting lessons and holding script rehearsals whenever time permits. A representative of Pledis explained, “UEE has always been athletic so she has a lot of stamina. She exercises whenever she has spare time in order to manage herself. She’s also been on a diet and has a slim new body to show off.”

She elaborated, “I asked my mom for allowance but she wouldn’t give me any because I played around outside. So I fought with my mom  and when I was little, she stripped me naked and placed me in front of our house door. I was in the 9th grade and she told me that she would do that again. I cried and ran out saying, ‘Don’t look for me because I’m going to run away!’

The powerful vocalist ended by revealing the end to her ‘tragic’ story, “I went to go to my friend’s house but she wasn’t there. I ended up going back to my house after the sun rose at dawn.
