    What sort of song is your debut song Good Day?
    It’s the Japanese version single of my own Korean hit song. But comparing to the Korean version, we changed the girl in the Japanese lyrics to have more of a younger feeling and she is singing about her sad feelings while thinking about a guy older than her.

    When did your dream to become a singer begin?
    I had the opportunity to perform on stage in the 3rd year of middle school and I loved the feeling I had then, and then I went for a lot of auditions.

    How do you feel looking back now at all the awards you have received so quickly since your debut?
    I definitely felt nervous to be standing on the same stage as my seniors during the award ceremonies. Regardless of if I received an award award or not, it was still a really special experience for me.

    How was your showcase prior to your debut?
    Firstly, since I hadn’t debuted yet, I was really taken aback to find all the seats filled and was really glad that everyone gave warm responses too. There was also a wide age range. But when I asked the audience, “You’re happy right? You’re sad right?” it startled me slightly to see no reaction! But afterwards I learned that the Japanese people would give a response later by giving applause (Laughs).

    How did you feel when your Japanese debut was confirmed?
    To be honest, it still doesn’t feel like reality yet. But the showcase turned out to be above my expectations, so my confidence rose. Like my Korean debut, I hope to slowly and steadily “step up”.

    What’s your dream as an artist?
    Since I have very high expectations for myself, I have no desire to make it big right away. I’m still far from my goal right now. Thus far, there’s no performance that I truly felt satisfied with my singing yet.

    What message would you like to convey through music?
    When I sing, the first thing that comes to my mind is my emotions. It may not be right for me to say that I put my listeners in second place, but that really comes first.

    Your favorite fashion style?
    I like the casual and comfortable style. Right now, I want to wear a fluffy knitwear. Since in spring, I want to show a cute image ♥ But I’m still learning about style everyday!

    What type of boys do you like?
    Nice ones. As for Japanese celebrities, I think Oguri Shun-san and Koike Teppei-san are cool.

    Thank you for translating! It's so sweet that she always sticks by her answer of liking "nice" guys. She has lovely taste, and it's carried over to her Japanese celebrity picks--they're good choices! And I think it's great that she's been focusing a lot on her on-stage emotions, that's such a huge part of performances and she keeps on improving more and more with it. :3
