The life of a kpop star isn’t easy, even though music videos and reality shows often make it seem like it. There has been more than one occasion where a family member has used an artist’s name in order to scam people.
Unfortunately, the usual story is that of an estranged father who begs money from someone using his connection to his well-known daughter and then defaults on his promises. This is the story of HA:TFELT, aka Yeeun/Yenny, who started her kpop career as one of the original and long-term members of the group Wonder Girls.

For the first time in my twenty-nine years Daddy sent me a letter Never knew how wack his handwriting was I guess I should've known better That's why mine is so ugly, too That's why mine is so ugly, too For the first time in my twenty-nine years Daddy wrote me a letter How's your mom? How's your sis? I really miss ya, but you better not come here I'm sorry, but don't you worry 'Cause I'm prayin' for your health and future Oh dear, sweetheart Things have gone a little South My girl, need your help Could you bail me out (bail me out) Life sucks for everybody (No need to cry no no no) Life sucks for everybody (Act like no child no no no) I'm just survivin' everyday Right at the edge of losing my mind Life sucks for everybody Just let me find peace of mind If only I could go back and tell myself "Don't you trust him, he already hurt you" When you cried on you knees, showing some regrets Wish I could've known better People don't change so easily, nah People can't change that easily If only you meant all you told me that night But, guess I'd better blame myself How's your night? How's your sleep? Have you ever woken up by your conscience? Well I'm sorry, I've got no worries All I have are wrath and disgust One time, you said, "Must obey or be cursed" You were right, I am cursed Running your blood in my vein (my vein) Life sucks for everybody (No need to cry no no no) Life sucks for everybody (Act like no child no no no) I'm just survivin' everyday Right at the edge of losing my mind Life sucks for everybody Just let me find peace of mind I might pull the trigger, you know I might do it for good, you know I might pull the trigger, for both of us I might do it for all, you'll see I might pull the trigger I might do it for good, you know Pull the trigger Do it for all
