Her mother, Ye Kum-hee, recalled the atmosphere of the time when she graduated from Sook-myung University, winning very several competitions necessary to become a stewardess "It was a kind of job that most female undergraduates wanted due to the opportunity to travel abroad."
Her daughter said that "I discovered that taking care of customers in an airplane suits my abilities and, at the same time, my mother's encouragements directd me towards the service area." She went on to say that "I learned from my mother that being a stewardess is far different from what ordinary people believe."
