Source: Schema MagazineTNA Knockouts Champion Gail Kim recently spoke to Schema Magazine, here are some highlights:
What female wrestlers she looked up to: "I always looked up to Molly Holly who is no longer wrestling. She gave me my break in this business. The thing I admire most about her is not only her talent but the fact that she is genuinely so nice and kind hearted. A great person to know."
Having to deal with a stereotypical character: "I don't think I can remember a time feeling uncomfortable because I was never forced to play the stereotypical role, but that may be because I didn't know how. I can't speak fluent Korean (I regret quitting Korean school as a child now!), so it was difficult to put me in that role. The only time I felt uncomfortable [with] was when I was asked to do things that were overtly sexual or anything dance related lol! I think I'm sexiest when I'm myself. As for the dancing part, I have two left feet!"
Why she left WWE: "There were many reasons why, including some disrespectful situations and the way women were treated, so I decided to move on. I did, and I'm happier than ever, and I will never know reasons why so I choose not to worry about that anymore. I can only look forward and try to do positive things from now on. Impact Wrestling has been home for me and it's just been a confidence building, pro female wrestling environment. I feel like I don't have to limit myself anymore."
