15&’s Baek Yerin talked about the pressure to do well after making a comeback.
On June 20, Baek Yerin appeared on MBC FM4U’s “Tei’s Dreaming Radio” to celebrate her recent comeback.
When asked how she feels after topping the charts after the release of her album, she says, “Even though I sleep at 3 or 4 a.m., I tried to not look at the charts. I was worried that my album wouldn’t do well. I tend to be more harsh on myself when I release a song that I made myself. So that’s why I avoided looking at the charts, until I got a message from my dad saying, ‘I’m proud of you.’ I checked the charts then, and I realized I was in first place.”
Labelmate singer Baek A Yeon has made a comeback recently, too. Baek Yerin explains, “I was honestly pressured. Her songs always do well, and the agency told me, ‘Let’s try to do as well as Baek A Yeon,’ so I felt pressure.”
