On June 21, one netizen took to an online community forum and created a post titled, "Kep1er's Choi Yujin, who received an income for the first time in 7 years." Here, the netizen included a photo from an Instagram post made by Yujin's mom, where she revealed that Kep1er's Yujin had gifted them with hanwoo beef and date funds to enjoy a meal at Outback Steakhouse.
Yujin's mother wrote:
"Yujin's gift that flew in, in May^^
Thanks to you, we got to try going to Outback~
I also got to go on a date with Jae Hong-nim~
It's been so long since I've gone to Outback^^
You're my daughter, who I can't see often but...
I'm so thankful that you're caring for us in this way...
I love you~~"
Kep1er's Yujin has been active as a singer for 7 years, including her activities with her former group CLC. The netizen further wrote, "She gifted her family with hanwoo beef + her parents with Outback so that they can go on a date. She couldn't receive income during her CLC days, but she must have received income while promoting with Kep1er. So touching, I'm tearing up TTT. Yujin bunny, hwaiting!"
In response, some netizens commented:
"It's possible for her to have wanted to quit being an idol after consistently promoting with CLC for 6 years straight, but she's amazing for challenging herself again TT. I can see that she achieved her dream. It's so nice to see. I hope she succeeds even more."
"I guess they get their income pretty quickly. Maybe because they sold a lot of albums right after their debut."
"Wow, I'm so relieved she's doing well TT."
"She succeeded because she keeps challenging herself. So nice to see."
"Hanwoo is always the best gift."
"Her parents must be so happy."
"This makes me tear up for some reason."
"Kep1er actually sold a lot of albums. Because they debuted with an audition program, they also have a lot of international fans, and their debut album sold like 20,000 copies in first week sales. I hope they continue to earn a lot!"
