On a recent broadcast of SBS’s “Night After Night“, After School’s UEE appeared as a guest and shared an experience of how rookies were treated in comparison to big stars.
UEE revealed, “When After School were rookies, we couldn’t eat meals more expensive than 6,000 won (~$6 USD). So if we went 500 won over the limit, our manager made sure we accounted for that ourselves. In comparison, Son Dambi unnie was not like that, despite being in the same company. Because she is a top star, she could eat anything she liked. I envied that.”
Hearing UEE’s experience, Jung Yonghwa asked, “What is the criteria to be a top star?”
Kim Jae Dong humorously answered, “Someone who receives more than 6,000 won for a meal,” which drew laughter from the studio.
