Somi explained, "I was so vain when I was a member of I.O.I. I had the 'celebrity disease'. After gaining some popularity, most people in this industry will catch this at least once in their career span." 

Notably though, Somi was completely unconscious about her actions. For her, she had to work almost 365 days a year, and it was her job to look perfect at all times. But she still felt guilty.

When JaeJae asked when she realized this, Somi noted that it was after her debut, specifically when she heard what people had to say about her.

Somi then explained that she will never act like that ever again.
