Life coach returns to TV after scandal

Celebrity life coach Kim Mi-kyung, who came under fire on suspicion of plagiarizing her master’s degree thesis at Ewha Womans University, will be returning to TV, according to local media reports yesterday.

“It’s been a year away from TV since my last guest appearance in MBC’s ‘The Knee-Drop Guru,’ ” said the 48-year-old instructor at a press conference for JTBC’s new educational program “Is It Only Me” (tentative title) yesterday.

“If I were to explain my emotions in one word, it would be ‘apologetic.’ I realize how much I hurt those who were inspired by my story.”

She also added that it took her one year to overcome her difficulties and to figure out how she was going to approach audiences in future.

“Is It Only Me” will be co-hosted by Jun Hyun-moo and will discuss the stories of people who have overcome hardships.

Kim earned her bachelor’s degree in music from Yonsei University and her master’s degree at Ewha Womans University. However, after she became a star through making inspiring speeches and because of her best-selling book “Dream On,” she was accused of plagiarizing her theses. Kim has not appeared on TV since then.
