|“||I wrote the song SOMEDAY. I came up with the melody when I was listening to a ballad song. I went straight using piano and composed it. I also wrote lyrics about how we the members spend our time together. I hope when people listen to this song they can feel the empathetic emotion as they go through their daily routines (while listening to this song).||”|
- When was your first stage?
|“||When I was in primary school I always want to work with jobs that related to piano. But then I stop playing piano and started singing at choir, turned out it was fun. Then when I was in Junior High School, I performed Beyonce's Listen with a friend at school assembly stage. My friends praised me because I sang better than they thought I was and it gave me confidence.||”|
- But after that you must have stand on stage a lot, regardless of that do you still feel nervous like the first time?
|“||At the end when I stand on stage all my anxiety went away and somehow I had fun until I leave the stage.||”|
- How do you deal with stress?
|“||I used to be the person who hold (stress) inside. But as I promote with the group my personality changed and I start sharing my concerns with other members, that somehow it releases all the stress.||”|
- So you do have interest in video editing. If you have youtube channel, what kind of contents you want to upload?
|“||I want to upload a cover or self composed songs with Chaewon-unnie||”|
- To repay all the fans is there a thing you will never forget (to tell yourself)?
|“||After debut we met so many fans from a wide range of ages and made me think we must have influenced a lot of people. But in between them there are a lot of younger fans too. So I want to tell myself and the members to become good influencers to those people.||”|
