Eli's ex-wife Ji Yeon Soo says she is currently unemployed and suffering from debt as a single mother


Eli's ex-wife Ji Yeon Soo lamented about her current financial situation.

In a recent episode of 'Late-Night Shrine', model Ji Yeon Soo who recently separated with U-KISS's Eli talked about her difficulties raising a child on her own. Unemployed and in debt, the single mother has been repaying her debt through government loans. She has been out of a job for about a year, living off of more loans and taking care of her five-year-old son Michael in a rented apartment.

"I can't even get a part-time job these days. The social distancing rules have gotten stricter, so there aren't that many opportunities. There used to be a factory where I used to have a side-job as a facemask packager. These days, the competition has gone up so high. I can't even do that job even if I wanted to," shared Ji Yeon Soo. "I would do whatever I can in order to make money."

Furthermore, she confessed that she was always the "leader" and the main "bread-earner of the family," since she was 11 years older than Eli. "I was a woman who wanted lots of love and a place to lean on, but that never worked out."

Currently, Eli remains in the United States while Ji Yeon Soo and her son are in Korea.

I feel like she has been struggling financially even before covid and the divorce.
Never fully depend on other people and always grow your skills while you can kids. Life is ruthless.
