ITZY constantly tops the music charts with every hit they release. Perhaps one main reason is due to the fact that many songs are focused on self-confidence. With great messages like the ones in their songs, many fans have been greatly inspired. ITZY’s every own Chaeryeong even claimed she has been very influenced by her own song!
In her interview with Singles Korea, Chaeryeong discussed the group’s accomplishments, their music influence, and her personal motivation. The interview started with the topic of ITZY’s impressive achievements over the years.
Q: You have been setting several records alongside your debut. What emotions do you feel when you get impressive digits on YouTube views, viewer count on V-App, etc?
I can’t seem to believe it even when I see it with my own eyes. I’m very gateful. Thinking about how many people listen to our songs, appreciate our performances, and give attention to our words and actions, I want to just show the good sides of us.
As previously mentioned, ITZY’s song often holds the meaning of self-love and confidence. With that in mind, the interviewer then asked Chaeryeong what her favorite lyrics were.
Q: Which are your favorite lyrics among ITZY’s songs?
The part in ‘WANNABE’ that goes ‘There’s no need to become something. Because I’m perfect when I am who I am.’ When I first saw the lyrics on paper, it felt like it had become clear what my mindset should be. In order to make the song sincere, a lot of my values changed while I was preparing for ‘WANNABE.’
As for her impeccable motivation, the interviewer questioned Chaeryeong on where she finds her inspiration to stay so motivated.
Q: You are known as a practice-bug (practices a lot). Where does your motivation for practicing constantly come from?
It’s from myself. I get angry when I see videos of myself and know I can do better. I also get inspired by watching videos of senior artists, who perform with years of experience.
To end the interview, Chaeryeong shared what her goals for 2021 are.
Q: Is there something you really want to achieve in 2021?
I want ITZY to become more known. It would be great if we can give good energy from consistently having great stages and performances. As for Chaeryeong I would like to put away my shyness and be a bolder person.
