Singer Baek Ji Young appeared on MBC 2's 'Golden Fishery' (11/03/2009) and revealed some pre-debut confessions.
As a young girl in junior high and elementary school, she was introverted and did not study to the point she ranked last in her class. Growing up, Baek Ji Young also learned the clarinet. She was really good and was even accepted into university for it but did not attend at the time. She quit the clarinet because she didn't want to burden her parents with the expensive lesson fees.
While studying music in college, she decided to be a singer from the encouragement of her boyfriend. After being introduced to a composer, she passed an audition and began her solo activities. At the time, she was also in a little known group called Trout Boys but only participated for two to three months.
When asked about her husband type, she answered: Shinhwa's Shin Hye Sung, H.O.T's Kang Ta, and ballad singer Sung Shi Kyung.
She also broke out in tears when she talked about the pain she suffered after her sex video scandal, but she was able to overcome all that backlash with the support from her family. Many people who tuned in to see this revelation saw her in a new light. Hopefully, those embarrassing days will be able to be forgotten.
