(G)I-DLE’s Soyeon Talks Juggling Songwriting And Team Schedule, Group Reveals Their 2019 Goals
In an interview with Star News released on January 25, (G)I-DLE talked about their achievements over the past year after their May debut with “LATATA” as well as their goals for 2019.
(G)I-DLE won the rookie award at the 2018 Asia Artist Awards alongside IZ*ONE, Stray Kids, and The Boyz. Soojin said, “We’re so happy and thankful for receiving the rookie award. We always say this, but Soyeon always works so hard. She composes and writes lyrics, and she also has a large responsibility as the leader of the group. Thank you for always taking care of us. Of course, thank you to the members, as well.”
Soyeon, asked if it’s not difficult juggling songwriting as well as team promotions, said, “I was interested in music from a young age. I even went to a music academy. Honestly, when writing songs, it’s stressful if it doesn’t come easy, but it’s even more stressful if I’m not writing songs. No matter what I do, I want to express what I feel, and when I’m writing songs, it relieves stress, since I’m writing what I’m thinking and imagining. That kind of process isn’t difficult.”
The members shared some of their most memorable moments from 2018. Soojin said she remembers being so nervous on their debut stage at “M Countdown.”
Miyeon agreed, saying, “Trainees don’t know when they’ve really debuted until they stand on stage. Because even if the team has been formed, you don’t know what’s going to happen.”
(G)I-DLE is preparing for their next release. “Fans will be seeing us again soon,” said the group. “We’ve almost finished with preparations. All members have participated in this album in various ways, so please look forward to it.”
In 2019, (G)I-DLE said they want to become closer to fans, saying they haven’t had many opportunities to meet their fans thus far.
On their goals for this year, Miyeon said she wants the group to win No. 1 on a major broadcasting station music show, while Soyeon went even further and said, “My dad always tells me to dream big. The dream I’ve had since I was a trainee was to chart No. 1 on Billboard.”
