DIA′s Hee Hyeon Opens Up About ′Produce 101′ Elimination
Girl group DIA′s Hee Hyeon has truthfully revealed her disappointment from her elimination during the final round of Mnet′s Produce 101.
On June 14, DIA held a showcase for their 2nd album Happy Ending at the Lotte Card Art Center located in Seoul, Korea.
Jung Chae Yeon and Ki Hee Hyeon, who were original members of DIA, left the group to appear on Mnet′s Produce 101 and received a lot of love from fans. However, fans were shocked to find that they rejoined the group after the completion of the show. The leader Seung Hee left the group while Jung Chae Yeon and Ki Hee Hyeon rejoined the team. Additionally, a new member, Eun Chae, joined DIA to complete the 7 member group.
Ki Hee Hyeon spoke up about her appearance on Produce 101 by stating, "It wasn′t an easy decision to appear on ′Produce 101.′ As much as I thought hard to appear on the show, I was very ambitious as well. Chae Yeon was selected as a member of I.O.I and I was eliminated."
She continued, "Chae Yeon had expressed that she was sorry. I was very happy that Chae Yeon became a member. When I returned to the practice room alone, I was very disappointed in myself, but the DIA members became a huge support to me. Currently, I practice in front of a mirror so that I can show my talent as a celebrity."
As she was sharing, Ki Hee Yeon was overcome with emotion and began to tear up.
Meanwhile, DIA′s second album Happy Ending is about the feelings of a girl who has just hit her twenties. The 7 tracks follow the girl as she matures from a high school student into a woman in her twenties. Title track On The Road is a beautiful track about the girl′s first love.
