Now that she’s turning 30, Jessica recently sat down for an interview to reflect back on her 20’s.
She revealed that she had a rough time during the past 10 years.
“I remember every ‘firsts’ that I experienced throughout the past 10 years.
I lived competitively during my 20s, so I couldn’t relax. And I cried a lot.”
For her 30s, she only wants to laugh and build on her happiness.
“For my next 10 years, I want to be able to laugh a lot. I think my 30s will have a lot more good experiences.”
Although her 20s may have been harsh, she doesn’t regret a thing.
“If you include my years as a trainee, I’ve been in the entertainment industry for about 17 years. But I don’t regret any of the decisions I’ve made so far.”
But I still have a lot of things that I want to try.”
She revealed that she wants to try her hand at radio DJ, appearing in a Korean film, launching a shoe brand and more.
“I don’t want to be known for one fixed image. I want to do well in every variety of work that comes my way.”
But she’s ultimately the happiest when she’s singing on stage.
“I’m the happiest when I’m doing music.
I experience joy when I make a good song, and I’m the happiest when I sing on stage.
Music is [my] core.”
From the difficult times she faced in her 20’s to her upcoming 30’s, Jessica hopes to continue to grow into an inspiration for all.
“I want to live doing what I love while treasuring everything to live a better life.
I want to become a ‘cool unnie’ who people can respect.”
