KARA‘s youngest member Kang Jiyoung has confessed that she purposefully looks for negative comments online.
While guesting on ‘Joo Byung Jin’s Talk Concert‘, Jiyoung revealed, “I’m the type of person who gets even more determined after hearing negative feedback. When I feel like I’m not improving myself, I purposefully search for vicious comments online. Then I immediately wake up [and gain motivation] again.”
Jiyoung also revealed, “Sometimes, I’ll look in the mirror and insult myself. The reason is the same. So I can wake up.”
Other guests on the show had their own ways of dealing with hurtful remarks made by internet users. Rainbow‘s Jaekyung stated that she makes sure her parents never read negative comments about her out of fear that people would insult them as well. Meanwhile, T-ara‘s Jiyeon shed tears as she recalled certain comments that deeply wounded her.
