Cosmic Girls' Dayoung proved to be very open about her personal life on MBC's 'Radio Star' on June 15 as she revealed everything about her family's unfortunate circumstances from her parents' divorce to their crushing debt (hopefully with prior consent from said parents...).

It was mentioned that her house in Jeju Island got half immersed in water back in 2007, so she explained that this was because the sewer facility had gotten clogged by leaves. She then said, "My parents divorced in 2006.  My father had a lot of debt, but it was all under my mom's name, and my dad said he'd go to Seoul, so they divorced.  Back then, the debt was about 1.2 billion or 1.3 billion (~ 1 million or 1.1 million USD).


"Since I was four, my parents had an eel store.  After my father left, [my mom] had to do it alone.  Every night, my mom cried when she looked at the bank book.  The typhoon came and my mother didn't know what to do, and I thought that I should at least scoop out the water alone, so I scooped out the water while swimming.  I scooped the water all day until it came to my ankles.  I even called 119 (Korean equivalent to 911), and received goods.  Not too long ago, my mom got a new boyfriend.  They're living well in Jeju Island."

    I read her story and I hope Cosmic Girls get famous, but... She really looks like Shin Dong-yup wearing makeup and a wig. Like, holy cow.

    everyone has a different perception of beauty. i think dayoung is adorable and definitely not ugly. there is no need for you to hate on her looks. if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

    I think 70% of people who commented on this article are going straight to hell. You guys are mean, you know? Bad people. Stop making jokes about that or saying her mother is a dumbass, you are just being really mean. This story is very sad, i'm glad she and her mom are doing fine now.

    Dayoung would've been 7 when they divorced. That is hard on anyone, but seeing your Mother break down would have been very hard on her. Glad she's doing okay now.

    Touching story but I seriously worry about idols (especially girls) who come from broken or poor families. The seedier side of Korea's entertainment industry absolutely preys on these kids.
