[Interview] A Pink Says Fans Were Worried About Possible Sexy Concept
A Pink returned along with spring, keeping its innocent and bright concept.
A Pink’s 4th mini album Pink Blossom was released March 31 with the title track Mr. Chu topping various music sites’ real-time charts as soon as it was released. Among the many girl groups who have chosen to go the sexy route, A Pink made the fans’ hearts flutter with its unchanging charms.
Meeting with Newsen for an interview, A Pink said, “We didn’t expect our songs to start out so well on the music charts. We planned to raise the ranking by promoting our songs on broadcast but we all screamed once we checked the music charts.”
The group also added, “We were worried how the public would respond but now that the songs are out, it feels good. We want to show many things on stage now.”
Having received lots of love with its title track No No No from last album A Pink said, “No No No didn’t win the first place many times but was loved for a long time. We hoped the same would be true for the new song so we discussed for a long time before choosing the title song. We were so excited to find out its ranking but feel pressured at the same time as the expectation rose. Now it’s up to how we perform the song on stage.”
Fans have been showing positive response especially because A Pink kept its original color. Not only male fans but female fans also showed support for A Pink’s choice to go against the trend of sexy concepts.
When asked if the fans stop them from the sexy concept, A Pink responded, “The first teaser we released was the album cover photo. We’re wearing red lipsticks in the photo so many fans were worried that we might change our concept from before.”
Meanwhile, Mr. Chu is a pop dance song about a first kiss shared with a loved one, featuring A Pink’s bolder but still shy way of confessing love.
