During a conversation with MC Yoo Hee Yeol, she shared, “It’s been 13 years [since I've been active] as a singer, and this year is my 12th year anniversary [since debut]. But I try not to say it too much. It makes me seem old.” Yoo Hee Yeol responded jokingly, “What are you talking about. I’ve been doing it for 20 years.”
When asked, “Did you know you would be doing this for this long?” she answered, “No. I’m a singer who wants to be an idol. I first started off as an idol. Contracts in those days didn’t have agreements longer than 5 years. So I thought, ‘At the most, it will be over in five years.’”
She continued, “But my career path widened, and fortunately, many like my music, so I’ve been able to do music for a long time. I think, ‘Now I have to do music until I die.’ I think I’m such a lucky person. It’s rare that someone can receive love for their work. I also think I have to give back all the love.”
