 It took more than four years, but K-pop group Vanner is finally making a name for itself.

*make ends meet: 겨우 먹고 살 만큼 벌다
*debt: 빚, 부채
 “Once, I met a fan when working at a store. I was really worried about what the fan would think of me after seeing me off stage. But the fan told me that she likes me for who I am, whether I am onstage or at a store. She said she was looking forward to seeing us back onstage. This kind of genuine support from our fans was the driving force that kept us going, and helped us to not give up on our career as K-pop idols,” said Hyesung of Vanner.
*looking forward to: ~을 기대하다

 Taking part in JTBC’s K-pop idol competition TV program “Peak Time,” which featured male K-pop stars who already debuted, was the last glimmer of hope for Vanner.

*glimmer of hope: 한 가닥의 희망
