In April, Solji was appointed a public relations ambassador for Fruits of Love.
Fruits of Love is the campaign symbol of the Community Chest of Korea. It aims to deliver hope to those in need.
Now, Solji interviews to become an honorary employee of the charity. YouTube channel OZ.lab uploaded a video log of Solji’s interview on June 4. Did she get the job?
Solji’s speech will be in orange text. Choi Youngin and the interviewer will both be in black text, since they appear at different times. Fruit Person and the interviewer’s interviewer (at the end) will also be the same color but in red text.
(0:04) The video starts:
Hello! I am Solji.
Everyone, I’m very nervous today. Right now, it’s the day of my interview! Woooo!!!!!! (hahaha!)
Actually, the interview is… Recently, I became a goodwill ambassador for Fruits of Love. (Clap clap clap!) Now that I’m an ambassador, I know exactly what Fruits of love is. I was thinking about how I could help.
What exactly do you do as an honorary employee? I don’t know what I can do to help. I have an interview today to study and find out.
I didn’t sleep at all last night… Oh my gosh… I’m nervous too.
I’ll give a good interview and be back. Hwaiting!
(0:42) Solji exits the car and enters the building:
I just arrived at the Fruits of Love headquarters.
Yesterday, I was looking up, “how to do well in an interview!” I don’t know what will happen.
So, fever check before entering. (Please come closer.) (Please come closer.) Closer?… (It’s normal.)
(1:01) Solji starts wandering the halls:
If you look at it… this way…
It’s a writing of the people who shared. So many people are sharing. I think they helped.
Yes, here is <Fruit of Love Honorary Waiting Room>. I think we should wait here before going in.
You’re here for an interview today, right?
I’m Choi Youngin, a new employee who passed the open recruitment.
Ah, hello! I’m Solji, a singer who came for an interview today.
Shall we wait at the interview place for a while?
Okay, got it.
(1:32) Solji’s chat with Choi Youngin:
Actually, I’m wearing a black suit that I’ve never worn before because I’m coming to an interview. So, is this right for an interview?
Oh…! It looks good on you too!
If you have any questions about the interview, I’ll tell you everything that you want to know.
Interviews have a lot of scary questions and some pressure. Fruits of love isn’t like that, is it?
We don’t do pressure interviews like that. And the interviewers especially make the atmosphere very comfortable. You don’t have to worry.
That’s a relief.
Then, an interview free pass award? Is there anything like this?
Let’s see… a free pass award… I think it would be good to tell you about our Fruits of Love talent award.
For Fruits of Love, we are looking for someone with a talent for passionately leading the culture of sharing and a talent for creating a warm world through communication and consideration.
I think I’m the second one. (Ahahahaha!)
I think all these things… are matching.
Let me give you some interview tips.
Rather than talking about anything that applies to any organization, talk about things that are more relevant for Fruits of Love. In the case of Fruits of Love, it’s an institution that helps people in blind spots in our society. I hope you understand the role of Fruits of Love and understand the job you are applying for. It’s also good to talk about your actual experience and abilities in your job.
Ha.. Yes, I’ve got it. Then, I’ll take your advice into consideration and have a good interview.
I’ll surely… become an honorary employee!
I hope there will be a day when I can call you senior.
We shall be waiting for you.
Ah, thank you!
(2:59) Solji begins her interview:
I’m so nervous…
I can do it, right?
Yes, please take a seat.
Yes, it is nice to meet you. Shall we introduce ourselves first? First, please introduce yourself briefly.
HELLO! I’VE APPLIED FOR THIS HONORARY POSITION! I AM SINGER SOLJI!
Ah… a very confident and brave voice.
Ah, that’s great.
Singer Ms. Solji applied, so I thought it was a big surprise. Do you have any special motivation for applying at Fruits of Love.
Yes, I have! I recently became a goodwill ambassador for Fruits of Love. I feel a great sense of responsibility. I thought I should have a good influence on many people while practicing sharing. Then, what does Fruits of Love do? I thought that I needed to know in depth, so I’m applying as an honorary employee.
You seem to have prepared very thoroughly.
You’re doing a great job today.
So, in the eyes of the public, do you feel there are any strengths or weaknesses of Fruits of Love?
Well… there are a lot of strengths! The biggest thing that occurred to me is, I know a lot of people will love Fruits of Love. I’m reminded of the red fruit badge. You always wear a badge on your chest at good and important events. I think that the positive energy and symbolism of the fruit badge is the biggest strength of Fruits of Love.
And weakness… there are none!
Just… um… a little bit?
If there’s anything I’d like to suggest, it’s that it should be promoted more to young people.
Also, my goal is to be an honorary employee!
I think you can make up for the shortcomings.
Ah, thank you!
There are many donation programs at Fruits of Love. There are support projects. Is there a program that you remember, Ms. Solji?
I was going to eat a really delicious meal at a restaurant and go to a mountain. I remember a signboard attached to a good store. The food was so delicious that I could remember it! It said it’s a donation shop. I thought it was really cool.
You told me about a nice store. I think you gave me a very good example.
Well, then Ms. Solji must have the capabilities. Considering that capability, if you do something for Fruits of Love, do you think you will be able to perform well?
I’m like a friendly girl-next-door. I’m going to present this comfortable look to the younger generation. If I were to introduce a culture of donation, I think people will be interested and not resist it.
Now, I am done with questions for Ms. Solji.
(Turns to Fruit Boy.) Is there anything you want to know? Let’s ask a question!
Tell me in five syllables the reason why you should be chosen.
What do you want to do the most if you get chosen? Small but certain happiness for office workers?
I’d like to put my employee ID around my neck and go out for lunch.
Have you ever participated in a Fruits of Love donation program?
Actually… I don’t think I’ve ever participated. I remember donating to Fruits of Love a lot of times.
Please sing a line you like.
🎶 (Sings a line from Up & Down.) 확실하게 내게 맘을 보여훠. Why don’t you know, don’t you know, don’t you know, yeah! 🎶
Thank you for your hard work in the interview. We’ll let you know as soon as we get the results. Thank you for your hard work.
Yes! Thank you for your hard work!
(6:28) Solji exits and talks to Choi Youngin again:
How was your interview?
Oh, I’m… I’m so nervous… I don’t know what you said.
I could hear music inside.
(6:40) Interview with interviewer:
How was your interview today?
I was satisfied because Solji has a high understanding of Fruits of Love. I liked how she spoke honestly and confidently.
Do you think she’s suitable for Fruits of Love?
I think she has a heart for sharing. I can feel her consideration for others. Overall, she’s a talented person who is a great match for Fruits of Love. That’s what I thought.
What did you originally think about Solji?
Ms. Solji… is supposed to be… quite… I was a fan. Especially… Isn’t Ms. Solji the God of vocalists? I think it will be encouraging if she joins us in Fruits of Love.
(7:12) Presumably on another day (because of the outfit change), Solji gets the results:
Ah… today… It’s the day the interview results are announced…
I’m really nervous right now. I won’t fail, will I?
Ah.. My heart…
Huh? [Fruit] Person?
