SM Entertainment’s brand new rookie girl group Red Velvet shared their thoughts on debuting and member Seulgi also expressed thanks to her company senior, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, for mentioning her name on previous episodes of MBC’s talk show “Radio Star.”
On August 1, Red Velvet sat down with OSEN for an interview just before stepping foot on stage for their first-ever debut performance on KBS’ “Music Bank.”
On this day, the group revealed, “We’re very overwhelmed and thrilled to be able to debut, which we’ve dreamed of for a long time. Because it’s our first stage, we were really tense and nervous, but many people were supporting us so we were able to complete the performance happily.”
They also added, “We will promote and work hard to show Red Velvet’s various charms. We’ll try to approach [the public] with our friendliness.”
When asked about Kyuhyun’s mention of her on television prior to the group’s debut, Seulgi responded, “I received interest from many people after Kyuhyun (senior) mentioned me, so I was honored and I’m thankful.”
Red Velvet is SME’s first rookie group debut in two years since EXO. The four-member group is made up of members Seulgi, Irene, Wendy, and Joy. Check out the group’s newly released music video here, and be on the lookout for their first digital single “Happiness,” set to be released on August 4!
