Hyomin recently appeared on the August 7 broadcast of 'Radio Star' where she talked about a period in time where she completely cut off contact with everyone. She said that "this was when my team was having a hard time. When we were going up on stage, we could feel the previous performers trying to avoid us." She continued, saying "after that, I was scared to interact with people. I felt like I had to get permission to take pictures with my fellow members to upload to SNS."
She then stated "It wasn't that I was having a difficult time personally, but more that I was worried that others might be hurt because of the negative view towards me. But because of Girls' Generation's Sunny and Yuri who were on 'Invincible Youth', I was able to not give up on my promotions."
