Q: How do you spend the holidays now that you are currently resting from promotions?
R: Last time we had a lot to do even when resting but recently since my mom is in Seoul. I’ve been spending time with her and we just do normal things. It’s been a while since I’ve had my mom’s cooking too. It’s yummy so I eat a lot so much that the my sister has to tell me to stop eating.
Q: Have you always been a bright and happy person? Your speech is really cute too.
R: I think it’s because I’m the youngest daughter and though my sister and I have a four year gap, we are like friends. When I was in Australia, I attended a Korean church and when someone new came in, even when no one told me to do so I would tell them, “If you need anything let me know.” I remember I was excited about it and I was in elementary school then.
