“I’ll attack you, I’ll scratch you and I’ll kill you.”
Those were the exact words of Miss Stephanie Koh in a recent episode of K-pop Star Hunt 3 when the show’s manager asked the contestants to surrender their phones so that they could focus on the competition.
The 21-year-old Singaporean has been shooting her mouth off on the show, leaving fellow contestants and viewers with a bad impression of her.
She and freelance dance instructor Yvonne Chua made it to the top 12 of the reality TV talent series.
In that episode, which aired on Dec 21, Miss Koh even caused filming to halt due to her reluctance to obey the manager’s instructions.
The stand-off was resolved only after the manager had a chat with her and persuaded her to give in.
Defending herself, Miss Koh said on the show: “I am very emotionally dependent on my loved ones, so I need to stay in contact with them. If I don’t, I’ll drop out of the competition.”
Speaking to The New Paper, Miss Chua commented on Miss Koh’s behaviour, saying: “If she had arrived in Seoul for the competition, she should have expected that we might need to surrender our phones.
“I don’t understand why she said those things and gave herself a bad image. She is very stubborn and strong-headed. You either love her or hate her.”
