I guess I’m not the type of person who talks a lot [when preparing for Weki Meki’s releases]. But this time I shared a lot of opinions as I felt more responsible doing it alone.
The idolka admitted that standing alone on the stage without its members puts pressure.
I would be lying if I said that being a soloist without eight members being together is just a little bit of pressure, but I’m trying my best to enjoy it.
Performing with members usually requires idols to follow a certain choreography, but in her solo debut, Yoojung put a lot of emphasis on “[performing] freely on stage“.
I felt it was difficult for me to be on stage freely as I have been part of the group for a long time. So I thought I should put a lot of effort into enjoying the scene freely. Besides, when I’m alone on stage, I realize how important it is to know for sure what looks most attractive to me, what I’m best at and what I like the most. I also try to be very careful about these.
Although Yoojung felt “a lot of pressure”About her solo debut, she has an incredibly positive attitude, wanting to focus on her excitement, not anxiety.
I feel a lot of pressure, anxiety and doubts about doing classes as a soloist because so far I have been doing classes in a group. But there is also the anticipation, the excitement and the desire to have fun. First of all, the priority is to show my music and performance to many people as soon as possible. This is what motivates me to work hard.
Ultimately, Yoojung wants to share her love of the stage and music with her fans as she grew up with a child who “he danced while watching [her] reflection in the window in [her] salon“To a gifted and successful idol.
I want to be the kind of person who can comfortably enjoy the stage and make people wait for my performances. I want to be an artist that a lot of people want to see every time they hear me perform.
There is no doubt that Yoojung’s passion for performance is immediately apparent as the idol takes the stage, stunning fans with her amazing skills.
