4minute’s Nam Ji Hyun apologized for her first performance after the comeback.
On April 13, Nam Ji Hyun tweeted: “My throat condition wasn’t that great during the first performance so I promised myself not to show a hint of surprise or embarrassment, and just do as much as I rehearsed. But my live performance was very weak. I know this is all an excuse, I am ashamed but I promise I can do better! I’ll put more effort. Keep rooting for 4minute and cheer us on.”
4minute had their first comeback performance on Mnet “M CountDown” the day before Nam Ji Hyun posted on her Twitter. Nam Ji Hyun’s live started to get noticeably weak during her part of “Volume Up.”
Fans and netizens who saw Nam Ji Hyun’s Twitter post commented: “Your performance was great, you are humble,” “This is why you’re 4minute. I’ll keep rooting!”, “It’s understandable when you have a throat problem. Don’t worry about it too much,” “You can just do better for the next performance,” and “That is a nice live performance for very strong dance moves.”
