On the first episode of their new Mnet variety show 'Standby IOI', IOI's Jeon So Mi sat down with Choi Yoo Jung for some girl talk! 

During their talk, Jeon So Mi surprised Choi Yoo Jung by revealing, "I've never dated. I really want to date. I dated once, when I was in kindergarten. But never a real boyfriend."

To this, Choi Yoo Jung replied, "In elementary school, I was really popular." 

Jeon So Mi then stated, "I was bullied. I was a loner. But I overcame it. That's why I'm Dream Girls!"

Warm support toward So Mi for overcoming her hardships, even in elementary school! Tune in next week for more of IOI on 'Standby IOI'!

I'm Korean, and I know for a fact that in Korea, it's veeeeeery common for Korean kids to pick on half-Korean kids, and regardless of what the bullies might claim, it DEFINITELY stems from jealousy.

In our country, people like Somi(mix blooded) are adored.

So Mi is half Korean and half what?

SpoilNight whateverman Saturday, April 23, 2016

Canadian

Canadian is a nationality not a race or ethnicity.

SpoilNight Okinawbwint Sunday, April 24, 2016

Yeah I know, So Mi is half Korean and half Canadian

i bet if it was a guy who was half he wouldnt get bullied

soomizoomzoom Saturday, April 23, 2016

Actually Vernon from Seventeen was also judged and discriminated against, too. The kids would call the half-korean kids "halfers" or stuff like that. It's sad :/

A guy as an IDOL wouldn't be bullied. However, as a student in korea, you will be heavily discriminated against regardless of gender if you are mixed or considered a "foreigner".

laurent soomizoomzoom Saturday, April 23, 2016

She also said during her SIXTEEN days that people called her a "mutt" because thats what people used to call dogs of mixed breeds :/

If this is as you are saying than Korean kids have lot of growing up to do.

neoncolors_0 Misa54 Saturday, April 23, 2016

Not just korean kids tbh. What about the knetz who gender discriminate? If a male k-idol is caught posting a sexual photo it's "normal", "cool", and "hot, but when a female does it, it's considered "slutty" and "shameful". Shout out to sulli.

Misa54 neoncolors_0 Sunday, April 24, 2016

Yup , double standards.

SVThoshibae Tayafairley Monday, April 25, 2016

Some kids can just really be disgusting. Why do they pick on people who are half?! They are beautiful! sighs sometimes I just don't get how some people's brains work...

cutestwinry yjkpanda Saturday, April 23, 2016

Half and immigrants have it though every where I wish the day will come when we'll just accept each others and forget boundaries

pkmy1996 yjkpanda Saturday, April 23, 2016

I think they bully her not because she's ugly, it's because she's pretty and they were just jealous af

Arachi yjkpanda Saturday, April 23, 2016

They even bully people with the same race!

Misa54 yjkpanda Saturday, April 23, 2016

What about schools and families they support bullying?

yjkpanda pkmy1996 Sunday, April 24, 2016

That's even worse! It's not like it's her fault she was born pretty... Sighs jealousy is such a bad thing

Bullying is a huge problem. Often, the kid being bullied gets zero support from teachers AND parents. "Kids will be kids". Kids get bullied for all sorts of reasons besides race. Like social/economic status, larger picking smaller, etc.

hiroonakamura Saturday, April 23, 2016

the lol members sure all have different backgrounds. interesting how they will all gel

h4nisaurus Saturday, April 23, 2016

lol she wants to date NOW?

prakiepaige63 Saturday, April 23, 2016

Yoojung laughed and found it cute, I would too but that would be before choking on my cereal or almost spitting the milk.... It's a shocker hearing Somi say that she wants a boyfriend, she said "namjachingu" so clearly. My bet she has a crush on someone and I have this feeling/instincts that her ideal guy is someone who is so cute/lovable (like someone who loves bubbles) off stage but becomes cool, hot and swag on stage

colorfuloddity88 prakiepaige63 Monday, April 25, 2016

I think you just described Kai. lol kidding. though Somi said in a video before that she is a fan of Kai.
