During the interview segment with Jessi and announcer Jo Jung Shik, Joy was asked to share the story of the first time she met her fellow Red Velvet members at SM Entertainment!

What was the first impression that your members had of you?

—Jo Jung Shik

Joy revealed that back during their trainee days, they called her the “ghost who lives in the vocal room” because of her initial cold demeanor and messy hair!

Back in the days, when I was a trainee…[They called me] Cold city girl?

Back in the days, I had long hair like this. So the ones who are not familiar with me would call me “a ghost living in the vocal room”.

—Joy

Joy then talked about how much she’s changed visually from her pre-debut days, and revealed her image used to be completely different!

Before my debut, I looked quite different from how I look now.

—Joy

Joy is slated to make her solo debut with the remake album Hello on May 31.
