In a display of resilience, Soyou recounted her immediate reaction to the violation.

As the train arrived at the next station, she confronted the perpetrator, unleashing a torrent of expletives and attempting to pursue him. However, despite her courageous efforts, the individual managed to evade capture.

Speaking candidly about the societal response to such incidents, Soyou lamented the all-too-familiar narrative of women being gaslit when they speak out against harassment.

Despite facing adversity, she seized the opportunity to impart valuable advice to fellow women, offering strategies to combat unwanted advances.

Highlighting the importance of self-defense and drawing attention to the situation, Soyou advocated for the use of elbows to create distance and garner assistance from bystanders.

By empowering women with practical guidance, she aims to equip them with the tools necessary to navigate such distressing scenarios.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE NETIZENS’ COMMENTS: 

It’s funny because Soyou and Dasom explain it in a cheerful way, but honestly, it’s a bit sad because it must have been very difficult to even smile and say it 

I don’t care that it’s a broadcast, but it’s too much fun to talk about sexual harassment and other topics that are a problem these days without hesitation… 

I want to see the 4-member SISTAR!! Please come and show some live discipline~ 

Of all the girl groups, I like SISTAR the best! The song, personality, and appearance 

There are a lot of behind-the-scenes stories that I didn’t know about
