SISTAR Explains Why Hyorin’s Self-Composed Song Wasn’t Included in the New Album
In a recent episode of KBS 2TV’s “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook,” SISTAR appeared as a guest on the show and revealed their honest thoughts about individual activities and promotions within the group, as well as a concern they had for their recently released album.
During the filming on July 22, MC Yoo Hee Yeol asked, “SISTAR is one of the few idol groups that I know the name of each individual member. What do you think of the power of variety shows?”
In response to this, member Bora answered, “A younger audience tends to watch music rank programs, but I think variety programs have the power to draw in a wide age range of viewers. Not just variety shows, but also MC [positions], dramas, and other individual activities were a big help in building up our public recognition and our own personal development.”
Also, when asked about her biggest concern for the new album release, Hyorin confessed, “I was upset because I wrote a song out of my desire to try out a genre that only a small minority would like, but that self-composition wasn’t included in this album for the reason that it isn’t appealing to the masses and is hard to digest.”
Dasom added, “The song was really good and it expressed Hyorin’s distinct color and style, but I also understand our agency’s position, as they aim for profitability.”
Aside from SISTAR, other special guests on the same episode of “Sketchbook” included Henry and Jung Joon Young, who also spoke honestly about pursuing music, while at the same time appearing in variety programs as well.
This episode aired on July 25.
