I used to hold talent shows in front of my grandmother. I lived with my grandmother until I was in my second year of middle school. Both of my parents worked, so my grandmother raised me.

One time, I was having a tour in Japan. In the beginning, my in-ear monitor broke. I couldn’t monitor my voice anymore. I performed in an incredibly nervous state, and only relaxed during the encore performance.

However, there was a moment in the show where Nayeon accidentally held her microphone upside down while singing. Nayeon’s accumulated stress ended up spilling over, and she began crying.
I ended up holding the microphone upside down. I saw that and thought, “I am having a mental breakdown today.” With that thought, I teared up.
