Yubin Talks About Feeling Lonely While Promoting As A Solo Artist
Yubin shared her honest thoughts on promoting as a solo artist.
The singer appeared as a guest on the June 13 broadcast of MBC FM4U’s “Yang Yoseob’s Dreaming Radio.”
She said, “I didn’t know this when we were always moving around in a group, but it’s lonely doing it by myself. I pre-recorded for [music shows] during the first week of promotions. It was okay during the pre-recording because there were dancers, but it was lonely when I walked up to the stage alone during the actual live broadcast.”
DJ Yang Yoseob commented, “At my first broadcast [alone], I told the dancers that it’s okay if they go home because they must be tired, but it didn’t feel okay the next time. I asked them for their help because I felt so awkward.”
He also questioned, “I thought you would do hip hop, but you sang instead of rapping.”
Yubin answered, “‘City Girl’ is of the city pop genre that was popular in the 70s and 80s. It’s full of funky, cool feelings. Many things co-exist. It’s a genre that has just the good parts of jazz, funk, disco, and rock. I started to enjoy listening to it last year and I wanted to try it. Many people were looking forward to hip hop, so I considered it, but decided to try something new after discussions with my agency.”
Yubin released her debut single “City Woman” and MV for title track “Lady” on June 5.
