 “I like men who are sweet, adoring, loving, expressive, and generous.”

“I try my best to hide while dating. I want to publicly date the person who I’m going to get married to.”

“Even in my dreams, I dream of standing on the Girl’s Day stage. When I see my fellow singers coming together again, I want to do the same.” 

“My body isn’t perfect. It has a lot of flaws. My hip is high so it makes my legs look long, but at the same time, my waist is short so it looks like I don’t have curves. I also have a lot of fat on my arms.”
