Kim Chungha recently participated in a pictorial for GQ Korea and sat down for an interview, where she described what her life was like after leaving JYP Entertainment.
The singer called herself a lucky person. When I was a 19-year-old college student, I trained under JYP Entertainment. When I turned 20, I met my current company and the show Produce 101,' she explained.
In 2012, Kim Chungha won third place at a JYP audition. When asked whether she wanted to give up on her dreams after leaving JYP Entertainment, she responded, Rather than wanting to give up, I just accepted my situation. The environment became unfamiliar when I moved to a new agency after my team [at JYP] broke up. Before the team broke up, the members were my last hope. It took me some time to accept the fact that this was gone. Right when I thought I had reached the end, I came across another opportunity.
