“I think I rely a lot on my members more than the other way around now. I’m trying to listen more to the members’ opinions and I’m silently watching them. Frankly, there is not much I am doing as a leader anymore since our members are doing such an excellent job on their own.” 

“I would like us to be able to show Apink’s colour in every album like we are doing now. We are now having fun and are excited to show people our diverse sides. I wish for us to bring music and performances to make people think, ‘I didn’t know Apink could express this kind of colour’ and ‘They’re amazing’.”

“Honestly, I got shocked when I turned 25 and my members made fun of me, saying that my age was half of 50. I felt like I got hurt by that, but not really. After that happened, it doesn’t affect me much.”

“I am very careful. I’m at the perfect age where I should be dating, but it was hard for me to actually do so.”

“Apink is what gave me the greatest strength to keep holding on for a long period of time, and it’s what will help me to do so in the future.”
