SSK4’s Roy Kim Insists that He’s Not a Perfect Man
Despite the general consensus that Roy Kim is the perfect boy next door that your mother compares you to all the time (umchinah), Roy Kim insists that it’s not true.
“I’m not a perfect man.”
Mnet’s Superstar K4 winner Roy Kim showed humility in front of his ‘umchinah’ image.
On December 17 at the CJ E&M Center in Sangam-dong, Roy Kim participated in a press conference with the Top 6 contestants. He said, “On broadcast, I come off as a perfect man, but I’m definitely not” and “It’s been blown out of proportion.”
He added, “When I entered into Super Week and started the live broadcasts, I thought that my musicianship would not shine because of that image,” and “The word ‘umchinah’ is very burdensome to me and I don’t think I am one.”
On the matter, Jung Joon Young said, “My mom often compared me to other kids in the neighborhood.
“Because of that I was annoyed a lot and told her that my life and their lives are different, but deep inside, I always told myself to do better.”
The It’s Top 12 album will be released on December 19 and the contestants will be participating in the Superstar K4 concert starting on December 20.
