Girl group Apink appears on KBS2’s “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” and opens up about girl groups debuting with a pure image similar to theirs.
During the episode, the girls perform their 2011 debut song “I Don’t Know.” Though the song was specially selected by them, it unfortunately was not a huge hit. The audience bursts into laughter when member Hayoung remarks, “Just like the title, nobody knows it.”
Six years ago, Apink rose to fame with their distinct innocent image amidst the trend of sexiness among girl groups at the time of their debut.
However, because several groups have promoted with the innocent image since then, MC Yoo Hee Yeol asks if they feel that their place is being taken away from them. Jung Eun Ji answers, “It makes us proud that many groups debuted with a similar concept after us.”
Son Naeun adds, “Nowadays girl group members are good at everything, even splits. We tried to do splits this time as well, but it didn’t work out.”
Jun Eun Ji explains, “That’s why this time, instead of splits we tried to make a little more impact with our gaze.”
