Ever since the sexy concept was forced upon Stellar, the group faced all sorts of undeserved hate and sexual harassment.

But even after leaving the entertainment industry, Gayoung still deals with sexual harassment via DM.

Gayoung revealed that she now works part-time at a cafe, but that she still receives inappropriate messages due to her past in the group.

I still get photos of genitals and messages asking me if I’m interested in being ‘sponsored.’

And as shocking as that is, Gayoung also shared a trauma that she still suffers to this day due to the revealing outfits she was forced to wear during her time with Stellar.

I’m traumatized from only wearing short things during my time with Stellar. So I only wear long things even in the middle of summer. I hate people seeing my legs.

Gayoung, who simply wanted to become a singer who’s respected for her talent, has returned to the entertainment world after 3 years by joining Miss Back, which will hopefully give her the second chance that she deserves.
