A difficult memory. Sistar's Bora broke into tears during filming for KBS' Vitamin's Family Month special.
Together with her bandmate Soyu, the 25-year-old girl group diva attended the special recording which celebrated Korea's Children's Day and Parent's Day which land on May 5 and May 8, respectively.
As discussion lead to family, Bora's mother appeared on screen and revealed that the songstress' father had passed away from gastric cancer on the very day she received a callback from her audition with JYP Entertainment.
"Park Jin Young’s company called for Bora but her dad had suddenly passed away that day. She wanted to go but ultimately declined." said Bora's mother. "Two days later what is now her current agency [Starship Entertainment] called. That's how she became a pop star."
