Have a good read and check out Jiyeon's interview from Arena Homme below.
Reporter: I took a look at some of your posters before this photo-shoot. Most of them show a look of a teenage-girl smiling. Jiyeon: This is my first time showing some skin in a photo-shoot. I like this concept of dreamy. It feels like something that I want to do before. I like it.
Arena Homme: A lot of girls have used the image of sexy on TV. Following this concept may just make you appear normal. Jiyeon: Sexy can be achieved even without showing off skin. But most guys only feel that it is sexy when they see some skin. Isn’t it?
Arena Homme: Girls say that it is possible to be sexy without exposing skin. But precisely what does that mean? Jiyeon: Yes, Kahi unnie only showed her abs in her previous solo album. She used a concept of gender-neutrality. Abs are sexy and cool. Girls feel that such looks are very cool and sexy. I am the kind who has more females fans. Should I say I’m like a guy? I think that since I have an outgoing side to me girls like it more.
UPDATE: With the Ferry tragedy in Korea, the release of Jiyeon's single will be postponed indefinitely. Reports says it will be moved for a June release but Core Contents Media is still to make an official announcement.
Jiyeon's mini-album will include three tracks and they are as follows:
'1MIN 1SEC' – Medium-tempo song with the rain sounds and lyrical melody and lyrics. With lyrics that express her feelings that she can never give up on towards her beloved man, she’s come to express her desperate feelings of not being able to live without him even if for 1min 1sec, as the song is titled.
'Yeuido Cherry Blossom' – A warm and bright song that suits for a spring with a warm weather. With cute lyrics and a melody that’s relaxing to listen to, you may look forward to the vocals that are different from the mood of the title track.
'Puppet' – It might have tempo to it but it’s also chic with sad lyrics and a minor melody.
The song and music video will be released on April, and while waiting for that, you can check out Jiyeon's teaser photos below.
