In particular, professional dancers, including Honey J, who rose into popularity after her appearance in Mnet's "Street Woman Fighter," joined as special guests of JTBC's "Knowing Brothers," which aired on the 20th.

During the broadcast, the idol choreographer then opened up about the traumatic experience of being assaulted by an unknown man.

"I lived in a densely populated residential area in the past, but as soon as I got off the taxi, I saw a man walking in a different direction, and I made it sure before turning into the alley where my house is, but the guy suddenly changed direction (towards her). I looked around, but there was no one," Honey J confessed that she felt in an urgent situation at the time.

The story continued by saying that she initially hesitated and felt sorry if she had mistaken the guy's gesture but she realized the man was actually following her.

"I brought my bag in the front, stop and pretend to find my keys, but he didn't walk past me. I decided to run but he covered my mouth and grabbed my waist from behind," Honey J added, causing a huge reaction from the studio.

Although scared, the female dancer gathered her strength and fought the man instead of being assaulted without doing anything. The guy managed to steal her bag initially, but she chased after him and got her bag back.

Fortunately, the man didn't fight back or harm her and ran away instead.
