Hani revealed the deadline her mother gave her to succeed.

She was a guest on the 5th's episode of 'Flower Road', where she said, "I'm proud that I've become a daughter that my parents can be proud of. My real name is Hee Yeon, but my dad calls me 'Hani' if we go to restaurants because he wants to boast about me. Before, no one recognized me even when I was a celebrity, and I felt sorry because I was working but without any results."

She then revealed, "My parents originally were really against [my becoming a singer]. My mom gave me a limit of 3 years, and I promised that if I didn't have any success in 3 years, I would stop. But we saw success right before the 3 years were up. My mom said, 'I admit it; I was wrong'. I got chills then. I was so happy. I wanted my mother to acknowledge me the most."

What I like about Hani is that she's a sexy beast on stage, but she's a dorky sweetheart off stage!

I'm glad that she approves now, the worst feeling is when you don't have your parents backing :/

I guess it was a challenge and she managed to do well in 3 years!! I'm so happy for her and her mom even admits she was wrong, it's touching! :)

I like how the mom gave her own daughter a limit as if contracts don't exist...
