CIX’s Bae Jin Young And BX Talk About Comeback Preparations And Their Differing Personalities
CIX’s Bae Jin Young and BX teamed up with beauty lifestyle magazine Beauty+ to talk about their upcoming comeback and how their different personalities fit well together.
CIX is currently working on their third mini album “HELLO Chapter 3. Hello, Strange Time,” which will be the finale to their “HELLO” series. Bae Jin Young has been recovering from an ankle injury, and he said, “I felt sorry and sad that the album we’d been working on for almost a year was pushed back because of my unexpected injury.”
He continued to say, “We’ve worked on a lot of new things for the title track ‘Jungle.’ A lot of care has gone into the other songs as well, so much that they each had the potential to be the title track. I rehearsed all through the night every night, so much that people around me expressed concern. I just want this mini album to be a gift for our fans who have been waiting.”
BX added, “Although we were sad [by the postponement], what was most important was for Bae Jin Young to recover. During that period of time, we talked a lot about what kind of music we want to make and we were able to focus more on creating our own style.”
The pair also also talked about how different their personalities are, but how it ends up working well for them. Bae Jin Young said, “I’m quite shy, but there are some people I’m naturally drawn to. We took the MBTI test and we found out he’s ENFJ and I’m ESFP. We’re complete opposites but these two personality types are actually very complementary. We each have our own strengths and our chemistry has gotten even better as we talk a lot and share our concerns with each other.”
BX talked about wanting to stand on stage one day with a song he creates for the other CIX members, and Bae Jin Young opened up about always working harder to not disappoint their fans. Their full interview and photo spread are available in the September issue of Beauty+.
