Interview with Hyuna: She loses 3 kg in the last one and a half months


Q. Tell me about your new album 'A+'.
Hyuna: I took part in every track of the album. "Sexy" is my concept for the album, but I hope people will recognize all my sweat and effort. I will show you all about the album through my performance on stage. I want to hear people say that only Hyuna can show such a gorgeous performance. I titled the album "A+" because I wanted to be praised by the public.

Q. Is there a difference between the title track 'Because I'm the best' and your former hit songs such as 'RED' and 'Crazy'?
Hyuna: 'RED' and 'Crazy' are the songs which are full of sounds. However, 'Because I'm the best' has some spaces and I have to fill it with my voice. So, it requires more concentration to perform 'Because I'm the best'. I hope many females who live their lives to the full will sympathize with the song.


Q. You are considered as one of the sexiest kpop singers. What do you think of it?
Hyuna: Actually, I don't like fancy things and I'm a regular stay-at-home. I just try to be absorbed in the song when I perform on stage. I think it's a kind of role-playing. When I was preparing for the stage performance of 'Because I'm the best', I wanted to express things about a hotshot.

Q. You've been sticking to your sexy concept since you debuted. Don't you have any plan to show a new style of performance?
Hyuna: I've been sticking with one thing. That's the way I am. I don't think I'm cuter than other cute idols such as Apink and GFriend. I sometimes dance to their music, but pure and cute concept don't match with me.


Q. When do you feel you're the best?
Hyuna: When I perform on the stage. I make myself up all pretty before appearing on stage because I should look pretty there.

Q. People say your album trailer is too raunchy. What do you think of it?
Hyuna: I wanted to show my healthy and sexy image. Some say it's decadent, but I didn't intend for it. As you know, I have only 3 to 4 minutes on stage to perform my song. I should show my energy within the time allowed.


Q. How did you keep your body in shape?
Hyuna: When I filmed music video of 'Because I'm the best', I tried to gain weight because I wanted show powerful dance performance. However, on the screen, I didn't look so pretty and I started a diet. I went to the gym every day despite my hectic schedule. I combined aerobic exercise and work with weights, and I lost 3 kg in the last one and a half months. Actually, I love eating and I put on weight easily. I think it's common courtesy for me to stay slim because I'm an entertainer.

Q. How do you spend your time?
Hyuna: I don't like to drink because my face turns red as a beet when I drink alcohol. I like to play badminton and watch movie at home.

Q. Aren't you interested in a love affair?
Hyuna: I focus on one thing only. When I work on my album, I do not meet people except for my manager and composers. Believe it or not, I'm not able to date somebody now. I don't have a certain ideal type. I want to be loved by someone who is like-minded with me because I'm a woman too.

Q. You are a former member of Wonder Girls and the girl group recently made a comeback. How do you feel?
Hyuna: When I watched Wonder Girls' music video, it was so touching and I called Yeeun. I've waited expectantly for Wonder Girls' comeback too.
