AOA Shares Thoughts On Their First Comeback Without Choa
AOA held a press showcase for the release of their new mini album on May 28.
The members were asked about making a comeback with six members for the first time following the departure of Choa.
Chanmi responded, “Many people are probably used to Choa’s voice, but Yuna also sang a lot. Along with Yuna, we all practiced a lot to make up for the absence well.”
She continued, “We thought a lot about how to perform so it doesn’t feel like there is a gap with the six of us. During that process, we discussed a lot and watched past videos to fill the gap.”
Seolhyun also shared on their preparations for the album, “As it was our first time preparing [for a comeback] in awhile, we prepared excitedly,” and added, “The preparation period was hard but made us stronger and was a fun process.”
She revealed that they practiced in the middle of the night as they did when they were trainees, and Yuna also commented, “We really practiced a lot. Like we went back to our trainee days, we practiced a lot together so that we can showcase what we practiced without getting nervous.”
AOA’s fifth mini album “Bingle Bangle” will be released on May 28 at 6 p.m. KST.
