Sistar‘s vocalist Hyorin spoke out about her upcoming appearance on Mnet‘s rap competition show, “Unpretty Rapstar 2.”
Through her agency Starship Entertainment, she announced, “After debuting, I continued to write my own songs, and I even participated in writing the songs on my solo album. I’ve also practiced rap, and I’ve written rap lyrics with hip hop artists I’m friends with.” She continued to explain her decision to appear on the Mnet show, stating, “I wanted to show all of my musical abilities as the artist Hyorin, not as Sistar’s leader Hyorin.”
Starship Entertainment further commented, “There are many popular female artists abroad, like Queen Latifah and Rihanna, who are capable of both singing and rapping. Hyorin has enjoyed listening to hip hop for a while, and she’s been continuously studying the genre as it really interested her. Please support her in this new challenge.”
“Unpretty Rapstar 2” will premiere on September 11.
