Kahi appeared as a guest on the May 6 installment of Mnet"s "Beatles Code 3D", MC Shindong asked her, "During the girl group outcast situation, what did you mean by the SNS post you wrote?"
When the Hwayoung and T-ara scandal was blowing up back in July of 2012, she had tweeted mysteriously, "Anyways... ha. not like other people." With the announcement of her graduation from After School just the month prior, some netizens at the time speculated that the tweet hinted at some hidden turmoil resulting in her exiting from the group. She explained, "I didn"t write that because I experienced something like that, but because everything that happens within girl groups is different from what happens with others."

Shindong asked, "Do outcasts exist in girl groups?" Kahi replied, "Of course. There are those who make a big deal out of various things and are unlucky for everyone else, those who deserve to get hit, and those who need to get their heads on straight. There are those who really deserve to be treated affectionately, but how can I be affectionate towards those that make things unlucky?"
Mir asked, "Even in After School?" Kahi replied just as honestly, "In every group. Even in After School, there are those members whom you can"t help but love, but there are also those who do not have a presence. At the time, I was the leader and about to graduate After School. I had mixed emotions and felt pity. I wrote [that post] when I was feeling that way."
Shindong, Mir, and the other MCs expressed how refreshing it was to hear her honesty.
