Similarly, Lia Kim was moved to tears during the episode as she witnessed her former student, now a thriving member of a girl group and solo artist, reunite with her former dance teacher Nayeon and warm the hearts of netizens.

During a playful conversation about Lia Kim’s forgetfulness, Amy Park inquired whether Nayeon shared the same perception of Lia Kim as a teacher. Nayeon concurred, but also mentioned how intimidating Lia Kim used to be.

Amy: “I was very curious. Did you see her the same way as I did?”

Nayeon: “Yes, you were always the same. But there were times when you were scary.”

Lia Kim: “I was scary back then. The period when I was strict because I really wanted to do well. I was young then and in my 20s. You were in high school (Nayeon).”

Nayeon: “Yes, I was.”

Through her vivid recollection, Nayeon elaborated on the specific details of her initial encounter with Lia Kim and reminisced about the intense training journey with the renowned dance figure.

Nayeon: “When I first met you, your hair was very long. You were a bit scary during your short bob hair phase.”

Amy: “What made you scared?”

Lia Kim: “It’s okay, you can talk about it all.”

Nayeon: “Can I really talk about it?”

Lia Kim: “It’s okay, don’t try to embellish it.”

Amy: “Just say it all.”

Nayeon: “There was a time for teacher’s splits. It was really scary.”

Lia Kim: “I know, I remember.”

Nayeon: “I was very stiff. It doesn’t look good if you’re stiff while dancing, so I had to do with the splits. You’d come up on top and wouldn’t go away.”

Lia Kim: “I pressed down.”

Nayeon: “Even if I said, ‘I really can’t do it,’ you would always say ‘You can’ and ‘Relax.’ It was scarier than the dance class.”
