Apink, who made a comeback with the special album 'HORN' to commemorate the 10th anniversary, directly answered the story related to the new album.
Below is a Q&A related to Apink's 10th anniversary special album. This is a comeback after about a year and 10 months. How do you feel about the comeback?
Chorong: First of all, everything is exciting and fun. The process of practicing is hard on the body, but the mind is very happy and happy. We are very excited to show you our new side.
An introduction to this special album 'HORN'.
Namjoo: This album was named with the English word 'HORN', a metaphor for each of the two options in the title song 'Dilemma'. Also, as it is an album that contains the affection and ‘soul’ of the Apink members, it is an album that has participated in writing and composing the lyrics a lot.
What kind of song is 'Dilemma'? What are the charms and points of appreciation of the song?
Namjoo: Once again, we joined forces with producer Black Eyed Pilseung, who helped Apink's perfect concept transformation, such as the previous song 'No One'. Again, the addictive hook is the charm point, and once you hear it, you can't get out of it. This is a song that well expresses the human figure in a ‘dilemma’ that I can’t even say before parting. Is there a point to watch or a point choreography in the performance of the new song?
Bomi: I used a lot of the dance genre called 'Bogging', which is loved by many dancers these days, and the point choreography is the section where the up and down movements are repeated while expressing the 'dilemma' in the chorus.
What is the point of watching the music video?
Eunji: The point to watch is that it expresses the ‘dilemma’ with a more colorful and sensual direction and captures various aspects of Apink.
Is there anything you focused on or paid attention to while preparing this album?
Chorong: It's something I care about for every album, but I wanted to show a slightly more mature image. We are constantly thinking and thinking about what kind of new image we can make and what kind of music we can make.
Are there any songs you would like to recommend? The songs each member participated in writing the lyrics are listed. Can you introduce them?
Eunji: The b-side song I would like to recommend is ‘Nothing’ by Ju Ji-rong (Park Cho-rong, Jung Eun-ji, Kim Nam-joo). It is a song with a style different from Apink’s, so I think you will enjoy listening to it. Also included is my self-composed song 'Little Star (Dream)'. This is a fan song that expresses gratitude to the fans. Are there any memorable episodes in the process of preparing this album and working on the music video?
Namjoo: During the music video shoot, I remember eating the food so deliciously, and during the album preparation process, I practice really hard every day, and I have a lot of memories of practicing again even when I was trying to lose weight. It seems like you prepared and practiced as hard as you did in your debut song ‘I don’t know’! To the extent that I can dance while sleeping on stage.
If you could express the concept or charm of the new album in one word? The reason is that?
Hayoung: I think of it as ‘horn’. Although it is the name of the album, it seems that it has a horn-like charm in that it is sharp and sharp, but also intense as it is.
What are the differences/strengths that can only be felt in the special album commemorating the 10th anniversary of your debut?
Chorong: First of all, I think the biggest difference and strength is that all the members participated in writing the lyrics. I put a lot of love into this album, and I carefully filled each song with good songs, so I hope you will listen to it a lot!
We started the new year in 2022 with a comeback. Do you have any activity goals or plans?
Hayoung: As I came back after a long time, I hope I can reach more people through songs. It's been so long since I greeted you with Apink's music, so I want to show you more of us! I would be even more grateful if you give me a lot of interest and love!
A word I want to convey to the fans who support and care for Apink.
Bomi: Thanks to all of you who have always supported me for 10 years, I am standing here and working hard to keep the Apink name cool. In the future, I will repay you with better songs and good activities for the pandas. I pray that you will always be healthy and happy. I love you!
