Posted: 02 Jun 2012 04:35 AM PDT

Singer Ivy doesn’t seem to be finished making her silly facial expressions just yet. On May 31st’s episode of KBS2TV‘s ‘Happy Together 3‘, actress Oh Yoon Ah commented on Ivy’s tendency to make funny faces.

Ivy first commented, “The skin on my face is really thin so my [facial muscles] can move freely. Because of that, I make a lot of silly faces.” In response, Oh Yoon Ah said, “When I first saw Ivy’s bizarre facial expressions, rather than thinking they were funny, I thought, ‘Why is she doing this?’, and was a bit turned off by it,” generating laughter on set. The actress was later asked by the hosts to attempt her own crazy expressions.

Ivy then stated, “On one program, I showed my silly faces, and it seems viewers were very surprised. There were a lot of responses like: ‘Why is she suddenly acting like that?’ and ‘I guess money is getting tight,’ but that’s just how I usually am.”

Lee Hyun Ah, a former member of defunct idol group Chocolate (not to be confused with active group Chocolat), previously received attention by discussing the reason behind Chocolate’s disbandment on ’Global Super Idol 3‘.

She has now dropped out of the competitive reality program. Her sudden departure from the show has left many curious about the reason behind her decision.

On May 31, ‘Global Super Idol 3′ finished individual auditions in South Korea and was in the process of creating teams for the final preliminary round. It was then that the audience started asking questions about Lee Hyun Ah’s absence.

The former girl group member was not seen on the first day of team mission audition day, and it was later found out that she had told the production team she decided to quit. However, her reason for quitting is still unknown.

Lee Hyun Ah stated on a previous episode of the show, “Because of an incident that should have never occurred in the entertainment industry, and because it was something that a woman could feel a sense of shame about, I had to give up my dreams,” referring to the sexual favor rumors involving the CEO and trainees of her former agency. Although she and her members were not the ones involved, the group was swept up in the controversy, eventually leading to its disbandment.
