Jung Eun Ji appeared as a guest on her own radio show to chat about her new solo mini-album!
The radio broadcast of KBS Cool FM’s “Jung Eun Ji’s Music Plaza” on July 16 was moderated by special MCs Apink’S Yoon Bomi and BTOB‘S Eunkwang. Yoon Bomi introduced Jung Eun Ji by calling her “Apink’s pillar and my closest friend in the business”, while Eunkwang called her “My role model”.
Jung Eun Ji returned after one year and nine months as a solo artist and released her mini album “Simple” on July 15 with the title track “AWay”. She commented, “Since it’s my first comeback in a long time, all my fans said they missed me and waited a long time for me. It is unfortunate that I can only show them my achievements online. “
She explained her album title “Simple” by saying, “I think” simple “is a term I need in my life. I’ve had a lot of thoughts from last year to this year. Yoon Bomi probably knows I was like that but she and Park Chorong were very worried about me. At some point I felt like I really needed to vent, and I was touched when one of my friends told me, “Simple is the best.” who have a lot of thoughts that we should try to lead easier lives. “
After performing her title track “AWay” live, she received voice messages from 10cm and Sunwoo JungA, with whom she had worked on her album. Kwon Jung Yeol of 10cm praised Jung Eun Ji with the words: “This is an album that is musically impressive, expresses a wealth of emotions and has a lot of value.”
Jung Eun Ji said that she was so happy to be working with him a second time and said, “Kwon Jung Yeol is my advisor. He gives me a lot of advice. “
Eunkwang also asked if there was another singer she wanted to work with. Jung Eun Ji said “Yes”, selected Eunkwang and said, “If I were to sing with Eunkwang, we could probably present the sibling-like chemistry.”
She added weirdly, “I recently sang” Love Day “with Eunkwang, but it was basically like a fight with high notes. When you sing duets you usually sing side by side, but with Eunkwang we sang like a competition . “
When asked whether “AWay” overtakes Apink’s “Dumhdurum” as their most representative song, Jung Eun Ji replied: “Since I am Jung Eun Ji,” AWay “is my representative song.” Yoon Bomi jokingly commented: “You got over it so well. You are like a snake. “
Jung Eun Ji also spoke about the success of her solo debut song “Hopefully Sky” and why she believes that “AWay” does not exceed it. She said: “The songs I made for the first time received such good responses that the songs that were released afterwards didn’t get as much attention by comparison, so I have a lot of concerns. Instead of hoping that” AWay “does better than” Hopefully Sky “, I hope that” Simple “will be remembered as a good album.”
At the end of the broadcast, Jung Eun Ji also received a message from her younger brother. After listening to his congratulatory message, Jung Eun Ji said, “The first person I played my song for was my brother. He tells me that his friends also like it and he gives me a lot of support. It’s so sweet to hear him try to accentuate Seoul. “
