Jessi opens up about the past hardships + criticism on her appearance

Jessi opened up about her tough road to success. 

On the March 29 airing of MBC's 'I Live Alone,' Jessi met Tiger JKYoon Mi Rae, and their son. 

The couple has first met Jessi when she was only 15 years old. Tiger JK said, "Jessi still feels 15 to me." 

At the young age, Jessi debuted as a member of Uptown but spent years without much recognition. While looking at herself during the "Life Is Good" era, Jessi said, "Life was really not good during that time."



She also shared, "In the past, I was heavily criticized for my dark skin and having many piercings but I believed I'll be accepted one day. I still have many hardships but I can overcome it."

The woman can sing through the excessive makeup! Seriously though, a talent like hers doesn't need gimmickry.
