On August 11, GFRIEND’s Sowon held a V Live broadcast to communicate with her fans. During the broadcast, she answered many of the viewers’ questions and even continued broadcasting while going out to buy dinner.
When asked if she would ever cut her hair, she said, “I’m not ready for that yet. I think my image will become calmer. I like my free-spirited image so I’m going to keep my long hair for now.” However, she added, “I want to get bangs. I think that if I had bangs, it would be easier to style for magazine shoots.”
She also told the story behind the name “Sowon,” which was given to her by her agency and means “wish.” “They created the name from my real name, Sojung, but I like my real name a lot too.” She also revealed that her current roommate in the dorm is Yerin because the two of them are sensitive to sleep habits and neither of them have any.
Sowon then shared her first impressions of some of the other GFRIEND members. “My first impression of Eunha is ‘school uniform,'” she said. “She had tied a cardigan around her waist and she was a very shy, girly girl. Her voice was very quiet too. I remember being surprised that she brought a salad the size of a serving tray.”
She continued, “[Yuju] was very pale. She kept putting something on her lips and brushing her hair and I thought she was a unique character. We’re similar in height and I thought that she looked like me as well.”
When asked which celebrity she was closest to, Sowon said that it was TWICE’s Nayeon. “I’m surprisingly shy so I don’t make friends easily. I’ve been meeting Nayeon a lot recently and we’re having fun.” Jokingly she added, “Nayeon, are you watching this?”
GFRIEND is currently promoting their recent mini-album “Parallel.”
