Jeon So Mi opened up about the inferiority complex she suffered over her looks in the past on the June 2 broadcast of 'Happy Together.' 

So Mi's father Matthew Douma explained, "Because So Mi is a mixed child, she went through really tough times in her childhood. She wanted to hide her Western look with plastic surgery," shocking everyone. So Mi added, "I wanted to lower my nose and color my hair black. And I was ugly back in the day. I suffered from child obesity."

The MCs assured her, "Nowadays, there are people who color their hair bright colors. You don't need to think like that. Your makeup style is popular, too," in an attempt to dissipate all her past insecurities. 


So Mi further revealed that her father was a professional photographer, and that she would model for him from time to time. She said, "I cried because I used to hate taking pictures. But as I started appearing on TV, I realized that those pictures actually helped me a lot. I'm thankful toward my Dad.

    I actually find the  mix of western and eastern beauty to be quite the contender.

    the same people who bullied her are the same people who want to have her Western features. Jealousy is what it was

    I'm mixed, and people bully us because they don't see as being "enough" for them, especially if we don't look enough like them. So instead of being included in two cultures, we're often excluded from both. :/

    It's not always like this, thankfully, but that'd just how it is most of the time. But I'm glad people like you see the problem with this. Hopefully we can create a better world for mixed people (and all people in general) in the future :)

    many mixed kids seem to be having the same problem as Somi. Even Vernon used to get bullied for his looks!

    Girl, I envy halfies. But her insecurities aren't a surprise, some/most Koreans are pressured to look better. I hope she doesn't feel like she has to change anymore because she's already so beautiful!
