Former SM Entertainment trainee, Jang Ha Jin was recently interviewed through the phone and revealed stories about SNSD’s YoonA.
Jan Ha Jin had trained with SM Entertainment as a future SNSD member for three years, before deciding to quit her potential musical career in order to put her full attention on her studies. During a broadcast last year, she was asked why she quit her trainee life. Jan Ha Jin replied with, “I wanted to study so much.”
Though she’s now a KAIST student, Jang Ha Jin reflected fondly over her trainee years, especially upon her special relationship with SNSD’s YoonA.
She mused, “I thought YoonA unnie was so pretty when I first saw her. She always looked like a barbie doll. She had a darker complexion back then, but at the time she gave off a very exotic feel, which made her look even prettier.”
“I thought she was a saint. She always had a very calm and gentle nature about her, so she didn’t know how to talk bad about someone. In the three years I trained with her, I never once saw her get angry at someone else.”
Jan Ha Jin further explained, “Unnie is really good at doing gagman imitations, and she was always a mood maker because she could create a smooth atmosphere with her juniors. She had this great talent of being able to do what our training teacher told us to do really quickly.”
