[Interview] NS Yoon-G Talks About Her Cousin Kang Ji Young
NS Yoon-G brought up her cousin Kara’s Kang Ji Young in an interview.
With Kang Ji Young debuting with Kara’s first mini album in 2008 and NS Yoon-G debuting with her single album in 2009, the two cousins have been a great support to each other.
In a recent interview with Newsen, NS Yoon-G said, “Kang Ji Young is younger but she has always been a big supporter since she debuted earlier than me. She was pretty since she was a child. She didn’t get any plastic surgery and is a natural beauty.”
She said, “Ji Young is really mature. We have similar personalities. She might appear to be fastidious in the beginning but in reality she is very playful. She is very good to her family and those around her.”
With Nicole leaving the team in January, Kara has been promoting as a four-membered team. Kang Ji Young’s contract with DSP Media is also to end at the end of this month and she decided to leave Kara in order to pursue further education and walk the path as an actress.
About Kang Ji Young’s recent activities, NS Yoon-G said, “She’s been doing well. While taking a break, we hung out to eat out at many places. She also helped me out in releasing my new album. Her advice really became helpful. I’m the eldest child on my mother’s side and Kang Ji Young is the youngest. Even though we are six years apart, she thinks deeply and is mature since she started working at a young age.”
“I heard from Ji Young that she decided to leave Kara in April,” she continued, “What do I think of her decision? To be honest, even though we’re both singers, we don’t really talk much about work since we’re family. Even at family gatherings, we’re the only two working in the music industry, so we don’t talk about things they wouldn’t understand. Sometimes we hear each other’s worries and give advice but I believe in Ji Young in her choice with Kara. It’s a decision for her life so it’s no one else can make the decision for her. She will do well in whatever she chooses to do because she is a smart girl.”
Meanwhile, NS Yoon-G released her new mini album on April 1, making a return after a year and five months, and is currently promoting her new song Yasisi.
