Soya sang songs from her second album and opened up about her uncle Kim Jong Kook on the live K-pop show Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook last Friday.
In a talk following the performance, she showed her affection for Kim Jong Kook.
Soya said, "I heard uncle thinks I need to improve singing skills. Uncle can't say harsh things like that. I heard from someone else." She added, "He has a very tender heart."
Soya collaborated with rapper KK for the second album, called My Team, Other Team, which came out on January 29. Soya's mother is a fashion designer who designed Kim Jong Kook's costumes when he was part of Turbo, the 1990s boy duo group.
