In the Chinese online community, netizens showed interest in Seo Ji Soo’s stories, who have tried various works after Lovelyz parted ways.

Aside from being an actress and a game streamer, Ji Soo surprised fans after confessing that she also worked as a factory worker and clothing saleslady.

In particular, she drew massive attention after her photo working in what seemed to be a warehouse circulated online.

Contrary to her fancy and glamorous life as an idol, Jisoo saddened fans as she lost her past image, wearing a black jacket with a mask and gloves. She isn’t wearing any makeup and her well-maintained hair was also messily tied in a ponytail.

Fans pointed out that given the lack of large equipment and the simple background, it seems like Ji Soo is working in a small factory. Due to this, they are upset about what kind of life she could have had if her agency only promoted Lovelyz properly.

During their heyday, they made waves for their hits including, “Ah-Choo,” “Destiny” and “Obliviate.”

Seeing this photo, her fans pitied her, but Ji Soo’s strong and positive mindset was commended when she said :

“I think being an artist is the same as other professions. You don’t have to worry about anything or make up your mind. Of course, I know what it means. I also made the decision after careful consideration.

This is my life, how could it be that simple? Hey, if I fail, I can do other things. Compared to me who does nothing, I prefer working in factories and selling clothes in pop-up shops. I want to challenge many things and never take my determination lightly, even though it will be very difficult.

Although it’s tiring and painful, it’s still the same (me) no matter what!

Despite working outside the music scene, the idol’s passion for appearing in front of the camera didn’t vanish, as she’s starting a different career of being an entertainer.
