ChanMi may be a successful K-Pop idol today, but there she came from humble beginnings like most other idols as well.
Her mother, who runs a hair salon, wasn't too financially well off in the past but was an extremely generous woman with a big heart. Despite the struggles, she would always help kids who ran away from home by giving them a place to sleep and food to eat.
ChanMi, however, wasn't too happy about it in the beginning.
She opened up about it and stated "My mom and I were struggling ourselves so I never asked her to buy me anything. But it would annoy me so much when these runaway kids always came in and asked for food."
But all this changed when all of them showed up to ChanMi's graduation day, dressed sharply.
She eventually changed her mind and had a new found respect for her mother's generosity.
