When we think about icons on Kpop, we can think of several people and MINZY is certainly one of them. With a career spanning over a decade, she reinvents herself and gives us the opportunity to see her journey. “Lovely” is a gift to the fans for growing up and moving on with her. On this interview, Minzy tells us about her past, present and future.
Say K: You are an inspiration and a role model for a lot of people. Who inspires you and what keeps you on track?
Minzy: I’ve watched and listened to old school classic – Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, TLC, Missy Elliott, Michael Jackson. They’re legends and very important to me.
SK: You started your career at a really young age. What are the good and bad points about it?
M: I’ve achieved a lot of things that I wished in such a young age. I toured all around the world so I’ve experienced and learned about other cultures, and met amazing people.
But on the other hand, working at a really young age made it impossible for me to live like a typical teenager, making me have no special memories with my school friends. That part is really sad.
SK: What advice would you give to the new generation?
M: Enjoy your youth, don’t waste your time overthinking or worrying too much. Believe in yourself and do your best 😉
SK: “Lovely” is a song that shows a new side of you to the fans. What does this song mean to you in this moment?
M: The single ‘Lovely’ is my gift for my fans. They’ve waited too long for my music so I really wanted to surprise and heal them at the same time. In fact, when I was having a hard time I started to write what I was feeling and came up with the lyrics. It ended up giving me a positive vibe. So I hope my fans feel better when they listen to “LOVELY’.
SK: Do you think a 2NE1 reunion is something the fans can expect?
M: We would love to collaborate! We respect and we’re each other’s fans. If we have a chance, it will happen.
SK: What is something that professionally you have always wanted to do?
M: I would love to produce an album, and share my ideas with a lot of people
And also, I have tons of tips and skills. So I want to guide the new generation as a singer and life coach.
SK: How was your experience releasing your latest single independently? What was the best part, and what was the most difficult?
M: I produced all kind of things on “Lovely”
I was involved in every single detail which makes really difficult to me because I was extremely busy at that time.
But at the end of the I’m so grateful that my efforts give people to coziness and happiness.
