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.

    Canadian is a nationality not a race or ethnicity.

    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".

    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.

    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.

    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
