On Oct. 6, Jessi appeared on KBS2’s Problem Child in House and talked about various topics, including Refund Expedition, plastic surgery, and her recent heyday as a rising star in entertainment shows.

The singer also told stories about racial discrimination she experienced in the U.S. while solving problems. She said, “I moved from New York to New Jersey when I was a teenager. The school that I transferred to had so many different races, and I was always teased.”

“Once, a math teacher called my name during an attendance check, and one friend made fun of me by making ‘chicky eyes.’ I just couldn’t suppress my anger, so I exploded. I threw my book at that friend’s face and knocked over my desk. But then the teacher told me to get out. So I yelled at the teacher, ‘You’re equally bad.’ I was about 12 years old then,” Jessi continued.

To the question of what we should do after experiencing such a thing, Jessi offered sincere advice, saying, “You have to fight again. If you appear weak, then people start to take you lightly. So you just gotta be more confident,”
