Despite being a year and four months into their careers, the SECRET members revealed that they still lack cell phones.
With a laugh, they casually stated, “We still don’t have cell phones. At this point, we’ve all forgotten what cell phones are even used for.”
They revealed that of course they still wanted cell phones, especially now that there’s a variety of smartphones with cool applications. Hyosung revealed, “I honestly do really want one, but there’s nothing uncomfortable about not having one. And since all of us equally don’t have one, there aren’t any big problems.”
The reason behind why they aren’t allowed to have cell phones is said to be because of team solidarity. In SECRET’s case, they were born out of a start-up company and had to reach where they are now through pure passion, effort, and team work.
Sunhwa explained, “Even if we fight on our own, we have no choice but to make up on our own as well. These experiences help us to become stronger, so we understand. We don’t even ask to use cell phones.”
Won Geun Young, director of TS Entertainment, also commented on the issue. “Depending on your viewpoint, the rule can seem forceful from the company’s end, but we’re very thankful for the members’ understanding. We’re also proud of them as well. For their two year anniversary, we’re planning to present them with the latest cell phones from the market.”
Hi guys! I've finally joined Omona a few days ago after lurking around here since last summer. I hope I posted this properly.
