The showcase for Kim Joo Na's debut single 'Summer Dream' took place on September 12, and of course the rookie singer was asked about her older half-brother, Kim Soo Hyun.

When asked about this, Kim Joo Na said, "Honestly, I believe this question could be an immensely heavy question to me.  Firstly, what comes to mind when reports about my family come out is that my brother worked extremely hard alone to rise up to his status. He had a hard time rising up there, but I'm honestly a rookie and had not debuted at the time, so it was hard for me when those reports came out.


"Firstly, still, he is my brother.  I really had a huge desire to become a younger sibling of whom my brother would not be ashamed.  Additionally, I support my brother a lot and hope he keeps on pressing hard toward victory, so I would really like him to be successful." 


When asked what image she wants to gain after debut, Kim Joo Na said, "I ended up coming out with the title 'solo artist Kim Joo Na,' right?  I probably won't be able to take off the tag related to my brother, but I still want to work harder as the solo artist Kim Joo Na and become a singer who has good promotions; please look after me."

    Over 27,000 upvotes on Naver for the top comment telling this girl to stop mentioning KSH's name.  Guess she got the publicity she wanted.

    I really like her answer, this is a sensitive subject and I feel she answered it in an appropriate and mature way. I hope reporters stop asking her about KSH and recognize her for her talent, but then again Hani was constantly asked about Junsu despite even shedding tears before. For the time being, this question will probably be in most interviews she attends =/

    @bangeryun94 you being salty towards this girl won't change anything or the fact that reports will keep asking her questions about him. They don't give one shit about how the person they're interviewing feels as long as they get their scoop!

    I feel like usually at showcases, questions are vetted, so her agency could have banned the reporters from asking about her brother cos that really has nothing to do with her music or her as a singer, in other press conferences, sure. Like seriously it's almost a year now & the only thing connected to her in the press is KSH and not her music/voice :/ Goodluck making a name for yourself girl...
