On the February 10 airing of 'Unnies' Slam Dunk 2', Jeon So mi explained why she wants to try out for a girl group again. She said, "My dream is to become a singer so I've participated in 2 survival programs." She then talked about not making it into TWICE, saying, "I made it into the last rounds on 'Sixteen' but I was eliminated because I lacked dancing skills."
She continued, "I didn't want to hear that again so I practiced really hard and went on 'Produce 101'. I was afraid, but I felt like I should do something when I'm given an opportunity. I think I'm the type that needs to do what I want no matter how long it takes."
