MBN‘s Miss Back is a new reality program that shows female idols who have been forgotten by the public attempting to make a return to the industry.
And in a new clip, former idols such as After School‘s Raina, STELLAR‘s Gayoung, WA$$UP‘s Nada, 9Muses‘ Sera, T-ara‘s Soyeon, Crayon Pop‘s Soyul, Dal Shabet‘s Subin, and THE ARK‘s Yujin made their anticipated returns to the screen.
In the clip, Raina confessed to having received very shocking malicious comments as an idol.
I’ve gotten multiple comments saying, ‘She has nothing to do as a has-been, so she’s resorted to YouTube.’ It made me feel like I was now useless to society.
And when Gayoung heard this, she sympathized with her own experience when her group gained attention for their daring outfits.
On the day of filming for the MV, they brought us ballet outfits and told us to wear them. I’ve gotten a lot of comments calling us the slutty group.
But that’s not all. The former idols also opened up about the financial struggles they faced in the industry.
I was with my agency for 4 years, but I never got a single cent from them. I worked my a** off to make money, but in the end, I got nothing.
Subin also added,
When I was a trainee, the study dorm I lived at stopped getting rent money. So I ordered a coffee at a hamburger shop and slept there.
Moreover, Sera spoke up about her panic disorder and depression, and despite having gone on a long hiatus, she still confessed to suffering to this day.
While many of the former idols talked about their hardships, Soyul, who is commonly known as Jam Jam’s mother on Superman Returns, expressed her desire to return to the stage.
I missed being on stage even after having a baby.
