"Do you guys remember? We were not allowed to use phones, but we would go out and rent a phone after our phones were taken away by the staff," Hyomin revealed.
Qri responded to her, saying, "Oh yeah! I got caught using a rented phone after a staff member found it in my drawer."
This caused Jiyeon to laugh and revealed that she, too, was caught with a cellphone, despite hiding it in such a secretive place!
She narrated, "I used to hide it in my underwear, but I still got caught doing that. It was really hard to hide a rented phone when we had female managers. They used to check everywhere, even in my body, to find it. They were so strict."
