Girl's Day's Sojin shared about her college experience. 


In the past, the idol surprised many as she revealed that she's an engineering major. On the April 11 broadcast of '1 vs. 100', Sojin explained the reason behind her decision, and said, "My father worked in a machine-related field. I grew up watching him and I chose it automatically thinking to inherit it. I didn't know there will be that many guys so I was startled when I saw that it was all guys. There were about 1,200 students and there were only about 12 girls."

Sojin also explained that she received special treatment for being one of the few girls. She said, "They gave me a lot of care. They helped me with my homework and stood in line for me during meals. There were also battles for lockers but my guy friends found one for me. When I went to orientation, the guys will be like, 'Bring Park Sojin here'. At the time, I was embarrassed but it's a precious memory now. I appreciate it."

    Good for her, if she really has the talent for it.  Few women do.  When I got my ChemE degree we had a 6 girls in the class of 30.  Some of them got good grades, but none of them really had any natural gift for the subject.  It's not PC to say it, but that's the blunt truth.  Thanks mainly to these misguided progressive corporate diversity initiatives, all of them easily got multiple engineering job offers, but 5 years out of school not one of them is still working in field.

    Strange. In my university, females are like 40% of the whole engineering college. 5 of my girl friends studied mechanical engineering and architecture.

    It depends on the university as well as the country. I don't think the engineering major is seen as a "common" path for girls in South Korea. Some places have a higher percentage of girls, but engineering is known for being fairly male-dominated still.

    Yes i think it really depends on the country and employment opportunities. Engineering is very common among females here especially telecommunication engineering.

    there are really a lot of guys in Mechanical Eng'g and I am a Chemical Eng'g major so I often see who are in the field of Engineering than those who are in Business Management or in the Education. I really salute her for being at the Mechanical Eng'g since she's a girl, I once met a class who has only 1 girl at that section and it was a Mechanical Eng'g block back when I was a freshman, we have the same room for Engineering Drawing class, they're the block who occupies the room after us.

    Women in engineering are like white guys in the NBA, there aren't that many of them, and about half come from other countries. And based on what a few have told me, they get more negative feedback from other women than they do from their male co-workers.
