APINK: APINK interview with Star news.

APINK is today releasing its ninth mini-album “LOOK” with the title song “Dumhdurum“.


APINK, which debuted in 2011, was highly regarded for its “pure idol” side, leaving super hits such as “LUV“, “Mr. Chu” and “NoNoNo“, and successfully changed the concept with “I’m so sick” and “%% (Eung Eung)“. In addition, APINK, which regularly conducts individual and group activities with each member showing their presence in various fields such as film, CF, entertainment and YouTube, APINK has become a role model for many groups of girls, demonstrating the potential of a powerful group of main girls of the KPOP for 10 years.

APINK‘s ninth mini-album “LOOK” and its title song “Dumhdurum” will be released on various music sites at 6:00 pm Korean time today. At 8:00 pm Korean time, the agency will broadcast a live showcase around the world on Naver V LIVE and will unveil for the first time its new song “Dumhdurum”.

APINK, who returns with its new song “Dumhdurum” after a year and three months since “%% (Eung Eung)“, spoke directly about the new album in an interview.


[Below, the interview of the 9th mini album of APINK.]

Q. It’s been a year and three months since you made a comeback. How do you feel?

CHORONG: I’m so happy that our fans have been waiting for us for a long time. It is also the moment we have been waiting for so long. The release of a new album is always exciting. As you have been waiting for us for a long time, we will do our best to leave you great performances.

HAYOUNG: Obviously, for all the albums we worked hard, but I think that for this album we worked even harder. As much as I wanted to show you a better picture, I hope this picture will be fresh and I hope you will like it very much.

Q. What kind of song is the title song “Dumhdurum”?

NAEUN: It’s a very attractive choreographed song that has an addictive melody. I expressed my calm mind through “Dumhdurum“. We have tried a new side. Please wait impatiently.

Q. Black Eyed Pilseung and all of his army are back. What do you think of working on your third album, together?

CHORONG: I’m so happy to have worked with them, they know our colors so well. They always write songs for members and fans, so I was relieved before the song even came out.


Q. I’m also looking forward to the performance of APINK. Do you have a main point in the dance of “Dumhdurum”?

 BOMI: Each part of the dance is the main point, so it’s hard to choose, but I think it’s probably the refrain, “Dumbder Rumdorum“. Don’t say it’s a lie. You will see it while watching the dance.

Q. What type of album is the 9th ‘LOOK’ mini album?

BOMI: As the album title is “LOOK“, I think the charm of each member will be found. I think it’s an album that shows the charms of each of us.

Q. What is the concept or the charm of your 9th mini-album “LOOK” in a nutshell?

HAYOUNG: Remember, we want to remind everyone that it’s “APINK“, and on the other hand, we also want to hear “As expected, it’s APINK“.


Q. What song do you want to recommend to the fans? PARK CHORONG and JUNG EUNJI participated in the writing of the lyrics for the “fansong”. What is it about?

EUNJI: We have included a special song with the subunits. I think the charm of each team will be felt. CHORONG wrote the lyrics for “I love all your moment” and it’s a letter to fans and members who have spent 9 years together. “Everybody ready?” is a “fansong” which was released as a digital single on the 8th anniversary of APINK. I wrote the lyrics.

Q. APINK celebrates its 9th anniversary this year … It seems that you are deeply moved by this 10th year.

CHORONG: I always feel like time is passing too quickly. It’s been 9 years and 10 years this year, but the greed and thirst for the album are still the same as when we started. I am so happy to create memories with the members and my fans.

NAMJOO: It doesn’t seem real. There are a lot of things we haven’t shown yet, so be prepared to see more new things in the future.

Q. “I’m so sick” and “%% (Eung Eung)” have made some successful concept changes. What kind of concerns and process did you have?

EUNJI: We have been thinking about the concept change for a long time, and over time we have grown and the music has naturally changed along the way. We try to express the atmosphere and the feelings that we can create naturally. Thanks for loving it. I want to grow musically by creating our own colors.

Q. What does APINK mean for members? If you could describe it in one word?

HAYOUNG: My real sisters

NAMJOO: My journal

NAEUN: My family

EUNJI: My roots

BOMI: The youth of my life

CHORONG: Everything


Q. What will 2020 look like for APINK? What kind of activities are you planning to do?

BOMI: I think each of us will show a lot of individual activities. Please wait impatiently. I think the next APINK album will be prepared soon. I hope this year will be a year where we can leave a lot of memories for our fans.

Q. What would you like to say to your domestic and foreign fans who are so supportive of APINK?

Thanks to the Pandas (official name of the APINK fan club) who are always by our side, we feel so encouraged each time we prepare an album. Our pandas, which were our greatest driving force until our 9th birthday, are always like new gifts. I will always sing good songs to you, to thank you for the love we have received. Thank you.
