Wassup's Nada sat down with KBS to talk about how her life has changed since competing on 'Unpretty Rapstar.' 


Rapper Nada became famous through 'Unpretty Rapstar.' She won 4 missions out of 9 but lost to Giant Pink in the finals. Despite not winning, Nada gained what she wanted the most from being on the show -- the title of being a 'star.' 

Nada debuted as a member of Wassup as a 23-year old in 2013. The group gained some attention for their "twerking" concept but did not gain much popularity. About that time period, Nada commented, "It was difficult. My friends around me started to get jobs and would buy presents for their parents. But I didn't make any money and even got into debt so I could have some money to live off of."

She spent about 3 years with no major work, working small events and performances. Then she got her big break after making it onto 'Unpretty Rapstar' this year. 


When asked to update everyone on what she is doing these days, Nada said, "I am busy working on music while working as a 'Wassup' member. I shot a lot of photo shoots and commercials. I recently shot a 'Reebok' commercial, so since then, I only wear 'Reebok'." 


"When I was unknown, I thought to myself, 'I wish I could be so busy that there will be no time to play, and my dream came true," Nada further explained, thankful that she can now do what she loves to do!

    While popular idols got sick and tired of being busy and earning money, there are the countless amount of idols such as Wassup who would do anything just to earn a living. I've known Nada as a member of Wassup (as well as Nari i think) when they first debuted with their debut song "wassup". Glad to see she's getting some form of recognition. But she should be doing more honestly. This type of fame is only meant to last momentarily, and then people will forget you again. I cant imagine what the other members are dealing with right now if even Nada was doing really crappy considering she's the most popular member. Until then, glad to see she's doing okay for the time being. I still doubt commercial gigs would help build a lifestyle but you know.
