4Minute Talks About Shedding Idol Image
4Minute′s spread for Grazia has been released.
The 4Minute members posed for a spread that captures their fresh and mature sides, ahead of the release of their new album.
The members sat down to chat following the shoot, where they talked about approaching eight years since their debut, saying "First, a big part of us is really proud. We say this among ourselves a lot. That it′s incredible we′ve come this far without any major incidents or controversies. When we first came out, we played up the fact that all of the members were born in the 90s, but now kids born in the 2000s are debuting. When we go on music shows, 4Minute is often the most senior group."
On how the group has managed to escape unscathed, without rumors of trouble within the group or member changes, So Hyun said, "In the beginning, there were a lot of things that were bothersome because we had to be considerate of each other, but as we′ve been together for a long time, I think we became more comfortable with each other. It′s possible because there is a sense of trust among the members.
The 4Minute members couldn′t hide their greed as artists ahead of their album release. Ga Yoon said, "We don′t want to show something that isn′t perfect. We have a few years under our belts now, and there are a lot of new idols. When we come off the stage, we want to hear ′Wow, that′s 4Minute for you!′ and not make you tilt your head."
Ji Yoon said, "I wonder if it′s time now that we heard ′You′ve shed the idol title. You look like artists now.′"
