In an interview with 'Showbiz Korea' on August 3, Gyuri talked about her "goddess" nickname.
When asked for how long she wanted to keep this name, she responded, "Honestly, it is so embarrassing and I never meant for it to [become my nickname]. The fans called me that and it spread widely... Honestly, there are many female celebrities who are beautiful goddesses, right? Now I wish I'd just be viewed as the diligent Gyuri."
