Ahead of Namjoo’s solo debut, an unusual reaction video has been shared for her music video “Bird”!
She’s joined by her fellow Apink members Chorong and Hayoung to watch clips, as they came to support her on the filming set. But since the MV hasn’t been released yet, the reaction video’s been edited to hide Namjoo’s outfit, and on top of that, the original audio was replaced with dubbed voices.
Namjoo is a bit nervous and embarrassed as her fellow members watch her MV footage, but they’re encouraging and supportive. Hayoung says, “This is a bit like the vibe I was expecting from you.” Chorong adds, “But it’s good that it’s not too overt.”
Hayoung teases Namjoo, “Isn’t it hard for you not, not being able to go hide in a corner somewhere? Since you honestly tend to hide in the corner when we’re together as a group.” Namjoo replies, “It’s seriously hard.”
Later on, Namjoo asks the others, “But do you think the fans will be too surprised?” Her members both reassure her by saying, “No, I think they’ll like it a lot.”
As they watch an ending part in the video, Chorong says, “I really like this part.” Hayoung comments, “This is the first time I’m seeing this choreography,” and Namjoo says, “I think this part will kill me.”
When the video wraps up, Chorong and Hayoung both tell her how cool it looked. Hayoung and Namjoo then talk about promoting solo, with Hayoung saying it feels lonely and Namjoo agreeing that it’s a bit hard doing it alone. However, they laugh over how a good point is that their preparation time is shorter, since they don’t have to wait for the other members to get dressed too.
