DIA Shares What They Want To Do With Their First Pay Check In The Future
DIA talked about their thoughts on their promotions and their hopes for the future in a recent interview with Ilgan Sports.
The group is currently promoting their song “WooWoo,” which was released on August 9. The members said, “Since we’ve made a comeback after a long hiatus, we want to have a lot of chances to be with our fans. We thought a lot while resting for the first time after having promoted for a long period without a hiatus. Work [is better] than a break.”
Leader Huihyeon said that her first priority is raising awareness about DIA, and commented, “Rather than as a solo artist, I want raise awareness as a group.”
The members also shared that they are still getting support from their parents as they aren’t yet receiving payment. However, they said they are having fun working towards success. “We continue to do it because we like dancing, singing, and being cheered on by fans,” they said. “We aren’t making money but it’s good to be on stage.”
When asked what they want to do with their first pay check, the members said, “We want to give presents to our parents. When our friends do part-time jobs and make money for the first time, they give presents to their parents first. We were envious of that.” Huihyeon said, “I’m still receiving an allowance. I want to have a lifestyle where I’m not receiving an allowance.”
The members also named their goals for the future. They said, “We entered the chart with this comeback, but we couldn’t stay on for a long time. We’ll work on a song that matches our style and that can stay on the chart for a while.”
Somyi commented, “I want us to come in first place on a network TV music show.” Jung Chaeyeon added, “I want to have an overseas fan meeting.”
Jung Chaeyeon is currently an MC for the SBS music show “Inkigayo.” She shared, “The networks each have different standards for first place. Sometimes a group that came in first the day before in one place can’t come in first in another. As an MC, I look into who the nominees are and look at the website. I think that ‘Inkigayo’ reflects the digital scores more than physical album scores. As I’m an MC, I want to work hard during promotions and reach No. 1.”
DIA took their first win ever earlier this month on “The Show,” a music show broadcast on the cable channel SBS MTV. Network music shows include KBS’s “Music Bank,” MBC’s “Music Core,” and SBS’s “Inkigayo.”
