When the Hwayoung and T-ara scandal was blowing up back in July of 2012, she had tweeted mysteriously, "Anyways... ha.. it doesn't feel like it's only something that happens to others." With the announcement of her graduation from After School just the month prior, some netizens at the time speculated that the tweet hinted at some hidden turmoil resulting in her exiting from the group. She explained, "I didn't write that because I experienced something like that, but because I can relate to things that happen in girl groups."
Shindong asked, "Do outcasts exist in girl groups?" Kahi replied, "Of course. There are outcasts and there are those who make a big deal out of various things and are unlucky for everyone else ['unlucky' used in this sense refers to someone that just comes off unlikable due to their actions or attitude to basically mean someone that you feel is bad fortune to you], those who deserve to get hit, and those who need to get their heads on straight. There are those who really deserve to be treated affectionately, but how can I be affectionate towards those who seem unlucky for others?"
Mir asked, "Even in After School?" Kahi replied just as honestly, "Yes. Even in After School, there are those members whom you can't help but love, but there are also those who do not have a presence like, 'Oh, she was here?' At the time, I was the leader and about to graduate After School. I had mixed emotions and felt pity. I wrote [that post] when I was feeling that way."
She was asked which member she found most endearing, but even after some thinking, she could not decide on one.
Shindong, Mir, and the other MCs kept expressing throughout how refreshing it was to hear her honesty.
