Dal Shabet‘s former member Viki, who left the group to focus on her solo career last May, was recently spotted on television reporting the weather.
Viki updated fans and revealed that her grandfather is none other than well-known businessman Son Kil Seung, sharing, “My grandfather is the former president of SK Group Son Kil Seung. He is currently the SK honorary chairman. He also gives lectures at Seoul University. During that time, I made my debut through Dal Shabet, and I didn’t want everyone to know. There is no one in my family who works in the entertainment industry. I didn’t want to inconvenience anyone. My former agency probably didn’t know of this either. I saw my grandfather when I was young, but I don’t get to see him often these days. He calls and emails my mother often.”
The former idol is currently the weather forecaster on JTBC‘s ‘News9‘ and opened up about her new solo career: “Starting from the 25th, I’ve been training to be a weather forecaster. Because I am the first idol-turned-weatherwoman, there is a lot of pressure, but I will work hard and show a good image as a caster.”
Congratulations to Viki on her new career!
