Kim Chungha Opens About Transitioning From I.O.I To Being A Solo Artist
During a recent guest appearance on SBS PowerFM’s “Lee Guk Joo’s Young Street,” Kim Chungha revealed her thoughts on debuting as a solo act after I.O.I.
The singer confessed, “I released a solo album after promoting as an I.O.I member. I think now, I’m finally a little used to [being a solo artist]. Up until recently, I hadn’t adapted to it.”
She went on to say that she wanted to come out on a radio show so that she could have a fun promotional period. “I wasn’t the type to speak up first when all 11 members of I.O.I were together, and I wasn’t able to show a lot [of myself] during our variety show appearances either,” she explained. “Now that I appear [on broadcasts] alone, I have a lot more time to speak and I’ve become a little more relaxed.
Kim Chungha made a successful debut as a soloist just a month ago in June 2017 with her title track, “Why Don’t You Know.” She also recently took part in a track that will be included in Samuel Kim’s upcoming solo debut album, which is set to be released on August 2.
