2nd Gen Girlgroup Member Recalled Working At A Warehouse+Suffering From Facial Paralysis After Activity Suspension

JiU appeared as a guest in a video released by YouTube channel “TAEK and JOON” on January 12th. JiU was the main vocalist of the 2nd generation girlgroup TWO X. Before debuting, JiU even featured in “You,” a song from Rain’s album “Rainism.”

TWO X is a five-member girl group that debuted in August 2012 with the single album, “Double Up.” They released songs such as “Ring Mark” and “Ring Ma Bell,” and went into hiatus from 2016.

In the video, the production team told JiU (real name Lim Chang-sook,) “TWO X has not been active since 2016. There were no articles informing its suspension or disbandment.”

Lim Chang-sook recalled the situation at the time, “They (the agency) told me to go home for a while. There was a time when my activities were suspended for a year. It was really hard. I even debuted, and I didn’t know what to do.”


Lim Chang-sook then talked about working in a freezer section of a warehouse, “It’s a system for people who do grocery shopping. I worked in a large warehouse to wrap the products that people ordered,” adding, “It was so tiring. I totally became an ice person because my face is so foggy.” “Work started at 10 p.m. and ended around 4-5 a.m. There was no break time, and there was only an hour for rest in the evening. Still, the hourly wage was higher than that of a regular part-time job. It was more than 10,000 won.”

Lim Chang-sook confessed that she recently suffered from facial paralysis. “I was told that the cause was stress. One day, I looked in the mirror, and my right face didn’t move. It got worse the next day,” she recalled. “I was really surprised. I was under stress again because my face didn’t recover for a week. I got better gradually.”

When the production team asked about her recent situation, Lim Chang-sook replied, “I got my Zumba certificate and started my teaching career.” “Now it’s my world. It was so much fun, so I’ve been doing it until now. I ran a practical music academy while teaching Zumba,” she said. “I partnered with a friend, and then a few months later, COVID-19 broke out. The academy ended, so I’m focusing on Zumba.”
