As a high schooler in the late 90s, Jung Yu Mi shared that she loved H.O.T and even traveled from Busan to Seoul just to see a glimpse of the first generation idol group.

“I was waiting for H.O.T in front of the SM Entertainment building, when I got casted,” said Jung Yu Mi. “I was waiting out in front of the office for H.O.T when I wondered if anyone was inside. I peered in through the blinds when someone stared back at me. Then the person opened the door and told me to come inside.”

Jung Yu Mi became a trainee for SM Entertainment, eventually making her debut into the entertainment world.

More on how she became a celebrity will be revealed on May 28.
