On the July 9 broadcast of SBS PowerFM’s “Choi Hwa Jung’s Power Time,” Jessi spoke about her recent comeback with “Down” and the criticism she has received for the bathing suits she wore in the music video.
Jessi said, “‘Down’ was filmed in Bali, and the song has a very tropical sound, so I wore a lot of bathing suits. Because of that, I’ve received a lot of criticism.”
But she said she was ready for the flak, and that she didn’t back down for a reason: “You can’t do something like this in Korea, but I was ready for the criticism. I think it’s right for a woman to be confident with her body. If I’m confident, I can show it. I want all women to be able to do something if it’s what they want.”
