Former JYP trainee Kim Eun Suh apologizes for snide comment about Sunmi and Jeon So Mi

Sunmi, Jeon So Mi
Kim Eun Suh apologized for the actions of an SNS account that she shared with friends.

Kim Eun Suh is a former JYP Entertainment trainee who had been on 'Sixteen' and 'Idol School'. Recently, her Facebook account commented on Jeon So Mi's cover of Sunmi's "Gashina", writing, "For the first time, I realized that Sunmi is a good singer." The comment was aimed at both Sunmi and Jeon So Mi, implying that neither were good singers.




After the controversy, she wrote:
Hello, this is Kim Eun Suh.
I realized what was happening through a screenshot I was sent through DMs, and I also saw the community post. I'm writing late because I had to check everything.
I want to first say that the account that made that comment is not an account I use by myself. My friends made a side account to use together with me because I had come up to Seoul as a trainee, and could not contact people who did not have phone numbers. I used the account sometimes to message a few friends who live back home.
My friends are not trainees, but they could not use SNS accounts due to personal reasons so they changed the name on the account or used images that were on my Instagram.
I think the problematic comment was written not by me, but by a friend while the account had my name and photo. I know a lot of people don't know me, but I was on broadcast, so I know I have to be careful, and making that kind of comment in a public place is like committing suicide.
After talking with my friends, we've decided to delete the problematic account. I will no longer be using Facebook or its Messenger, and I will be more careful and reflect to make sure something like this does not happen again.
It was a situation where it was easy to misunderstand, and it's my fault for not being able to prevent something like this from happening. I want to apologize to Sunmi-sunbaenim, Jeon So Mi, who I trained with, and everyone who was hurt by what happened.
I'm sorry.


What do you think about her explanation?

Kim Eunsuh right now is a normal 3rd year high school student preparing for exams while doing contemporary dancing as a hobby and supporting her brother's idol group on the side. She does not belong to any group or any company and as of currently, she has chosen to focus on her studies first before her idol dreams. Her being a former trainee and survival shows contestant does NOT change the fact that she is not a celebrity whose life should be put under the spotlight. And now I ask, what part of her going back to normal life makes it okay for news portals to make bucks out of shitplaying her with bad headlines and for jobless netizens to judge her every move and every word? What right do you people have to judge her when you've never even bothered to know how she's been doing all these months and years? In case you didn't know.... she has been doing nothing but minding her own fucking business; which I recommend you jobless people do too. She has explained herself and apologized and now she owes no one. Whether you believe her or not is none of my concern but I BEG you just shut your fucking traps and leave her alone.

I call BS, but who cares... everyone talks and has their own opinions, especially in the entertainment industry which is super competitive. People need to stop being so sensitive and get over it.

Lol no wonder she still there, not debut yet. You sure lack here and there but still manage to debut but if you have 0 attitude, not respecting others, you will be nowhere. Trust me

I mean what lie? Sunmi and Jeon Somi aren't the best vocalist but they have other strenths. But it is rude to say it in that way, esepecially seeing as one is a senior and a professional artist and the other is signed to a label while you are a former trainee.

I wouldn't say her vocals are great, but all of her songs are BOP's. She's definitely got her own style and she's killing it.

i would say her vocals are great

she doesnt whine like other kpop females, she actually sings with her whole voice and within a normal range. plus her voice has a unique quality to it so that you would know it was her anywhere. thats a very desirable quality. she also expresses emotion well when she sings

to me, sunmi is a great singer

SUNMI and her long time 'Beefcake' Male Dancer at WATERBOMB 2018

There was quite a bit of (Female) FAN interest as to WHO that this MALE Dancer is.

She's not dumb, she knows making comments like that could end her career. But I think now she's learned a good lesson about how well she can trust her friends to make smart decisions.

Um, I think that one of her friends should have been the one that's saying that she's sorry, not her. And with that in mind, that's definitely why I only save the apologies for when I have said or done something highly offensive in any kind of way, including making any potential racist and sexist jokes. And oh yeah, that definitely goes for racist and sexist comments as well as those kinds of gestures and clothing. Plus, of course everyone knows that we got much bigger things to worry about in this crazy world of ours right now.

If the comments were indeed written by her friends, she is still taking accountability for her friends' actions which again, if true, quite a bit maturity in her part. Especially important because they were using her name.

do you think it was actually her friend that posted that comment or she just making an excuse because of the backlash?

So, SUNMI and SOMI are NOT say AILEE in Vocal Skill Level. This 'revelation' is so 'shocking' to me ... ;)

Anyway, best to just say 'sorry for the mix up' as Kim Eun Suh did say it.

As far as Vocal Skill, I would say SHANNON (MBK Agency) is a TOP Talent. And yet, SUNMI is FAR more popular with K-pop Fans than SHANNON is. Which, in a LOT of ways, it is a COMPLIMENT to SUNMI, to observe that she is NOT perhaps the 'Greatest Vocal Skill' ever. And yet, SUNMI is VERY SUCCESSFUL, in doing what she does it.

Their fans don't expect them to be great singers. They are none the less great performers with ok singing skills.

And that's my whole point! They might not sing well but at least they're popular and doing lit performances on stage. What is she doing?
