Sunmi Talks About Her Family and Confesses to Feeling Guilty After Her Father's Passing
"You Can't Sit With Us" singer Sunmi recently made a guest appearance as a special MC on the October 10 episode of SBS' popular variety show, "My Little Old Boy," where she expressed her affection towards her family and opened up about her late father.
"My father has been very ill since I was young. He passed away while I was still a trainee living in Seoul, so I couldn't be with him until his last moment," Sunmi said.
She shares that she also received a letter from him and confessed to feeling guilty, saying, "I received a letter from him that said, 'Please be born as my daughter again in the next life.' I felt immensely guilty for not being with him when he passed away because I came to Seoul [to be a trainee] for my family in the first place."
Sunmi also expressed her gratitude to her stepfather for raising three kids. "He raised all three of our siblings, who were not even related to him by blood, so beautifully. Thank you so much," Sunmi said.
