Former Wonder Girls member Sunmi made a special appearance on the SBS show My Little Old Boy on Oct 10 where she opened up about her family.

Sunmi had mentioned in the past that the reason she pursued a career as a singer was because it was also the dream of her late father. When asked about him, she explained: "My father was very ill ever since we were young. For a long time, my younger brother and I were his caregivers. It so happened that when I moved to Seoul to become a trainee, and that’s when he passed away. I couldn’t be at his side."

Her father passed three months before she made her debut with the girl group.
