She began by expressing, “I was in the SISTAR unit SISTAR19, but I’d like to go solo in the future as well.” When asked which idols she would choose if she could make a new girl group, she answered Jewelry‘s Jooyeon without hesitation, explaining, “I’ve always been close with Jooyeon unni. Aside from our friendship, I fell in love with her rapping and dancing skills. She’s got exceptional talent and charm that makes her the #1 person I’d recruit for my girl group.”
Hyorin went on to reveal that she had a lot of interest in hip hop music, but couldn’t pursue it because it was important for SISTAR to maintain their own pop-friendly style.
She stated, “I think the type of music I like, am confident in, and want to pursue are all different. The public thinks that SISTAR is really sexy, but we’re actually far from it. We’re tomboyish in real life and don’t feel that we’re sexy in each others’ eyes at all. Since we’ve been trained for such a long time, we merely know how to express ourselves in a sexy way, which I think is the reason why people think we’re a sexy group. It was through practice that we were able to emphasize our sexiness, so we hope to work hard to show different sides of ourselves in the future.”
Starship Entertainment is reported to be looking into possible solo promotions for Hyorin and another unit debut similar to SISTAR19.
Their CEO stated, “After SISTAR’s summer promotions, Dasom will be in a sitcom. The other members don’t have plans yet, so we’re thinking of having Hyorin release a solo mini-album, but nothing has been confirmed yet.”
