In the midst of her busy schedule as MC and preparing for IOI's final stage, Jeon So Mi sat down with 'Star1' for an interview.

Q: Congratulations to IOI for winning a new idol award. Is there anything you wanted to elaborate on?

A: TWICE handed the award to us.  It felt kind of strange since we spend time together filming 'Produce 101.' I would like to thank all the producers out there for their hard work.

Q: January 22 was IOI's last concert?

A: We prepared really hard and wanted to show a lot to our fans.  I hope our performance remains in their hearts for a long time.

Q: What do you think you'll miss the most after departing?

A: I think I'll miss everything.  All the fans who cheered us on till the end, I'll miss my dear IOI members.  We'll be starting our individual activities so please look forward to it.

Q: What do you think the reason IOI received so much love on 'Produce 101'?

A: Honesty? During the broadcast, a viewer commented, 'They are honest so I like them.'

Q: What was the year 2016 like for you?

A: It was indeed a memorable one as well as a turning point. Thanks to 'Produce 101' I was able to debut as a singer.

Q: What kind of person do you want to be known as?

A: An everlasting Somi. It's far from over. Just like Taemin (SHINee) who is a role model and really big right now.  I want to continue to perform greatly forever.
