However, what stood out was the existence of a penalty point system, which encompasses various aspects of a trainee’s performance, including singing, dancing, and character.

Ryujin humbly admitted that she didn’t always rank at the top of the class. Her character score, in particular, was not stellar, mainly due to her habit of freely expressing her opinions.

This revelation underscores the pressure and expectations placed on trainees to excel in all aspects of their training, including maintaining a positive character.

Lia chimed in, shedding light on the anxiety she experienced during her trainee days. She confessed, “I always thought to myself ‘I’m going to get fired this month.’ I thought this because I had a lot of penalty points.”

Interestingly, one of the infractions that garnered penalty points was something as seemingly innocuous as eating in the practice room.

Ryujin added, “We both got a lot of penalty points for that. We got caught eating something in the practice room. Food is prohibited in the vocal room.”

These revelations offer insight into JYP Entertainment’s demanding training and evaluation system, showing how talents like Ryujin and Lia overcame obstacles on their road to stardom.
