The former Wonder Girls member spoke at the 'Wonder Women Festival 2018' on September 15, where she expressed, "No matter what anyone says. I'll go down the road I think is right." As previously reported, Yenny was recently investigated by the police due to her father's entertainment business scam. He also came under fire for allegedly sexually harassing and defrauding the people of his church.
Yenny stated, "I worried a lot whether people would listen to what I have to say today and criticize me. I also wondered a lot what I could say about my story, so a lot of people could relate. In high school, my homeroom teacher heard my dream was to be a singer, and he told me, 'You would be perfect as a hotel elevator girl.' My Korean literature teacher told me, 'The kids like you who said they wanted to become singers ended up serving at night bars.' Now, I trust that I know myself the most, and I'm walking the road that I think is right."
As for why she's promoting under the name HA:TFELT, she commented, "I didn't want people to expect the bright energy they look forward to from Yenny. I wanted to express the darkness and anger I have. Women have ambition too, right? However, I think we have to worry and hesitate more. I think the view society has of women, the expectations, and their ambition all clash."
