Kriesha Chu held her first mini comeback showcase on January 3, where PENTAGON member Hui appeared on stage to talk about co-writing her title track.
The showcase “Dream of Paradise” was also broadcasted on V Live. Hui attended the showcase as the co-producer of Kriesha Chu’s title track “Like Paradise” and shared stories behind the creation of the track.
Hui began, “This was the first time in my life that I wrote a song for a woman. I saw a clip of when she appeared on ‘K-Pop Star 6‘ and thought she was charming. I was given the opportunity, so how could I turn it down? I worked hard on it.”
The PENTAGON member continued, “Kriesha Chu is really good at singing. I feel bad about this, but my songs are always difficult. I usually write difficult songs, but she did it as though it wasn’t a big deal. I thought that was cool.” He added, “I am 99 percent satisfied.”
He added, “When I saw Kriesha Chu’s clip, I got feelings of something twinkling, so I wanted to write a song like a star in the night sky. She’s good at singing, but also good at dancing. When I was young, I liked BoA, so I wanted to create that kind of feeling.”
“Like Paradise” was released on January 3. Check out the sweet MV here!
