[The Chosun Ilbo, December 21 2007] Jo Su-mi on the Hardships of a Diva's Life

What is the most difficult part of a world-class soprano’s life? In a press conference at the Kumho Art Hall on Thursday, Jo Su-mi revealed it is traveling. “When I go on tour, I have to keep myself to a hotel because I’m afraid to get sick. Especially in winter, I am so worried about catching a cold or sore throat that I never go out and often leave three humidifiers on in a hotel room,” she confessed. “I also find it difficult to get my energy back after I gave my all to an audience in a performance. I chose to be a singer, yet still I had to make many sacrifices.” This is why she always longs to go back home to Rome.
