(G)I-DLE says to Brazilian fans: “Just wait a little longer for us”

In some parts of Brazil, the cold winter is bringing icy winds. In South Korea, in the Northern Hemisphere, summer is in full swing. With that in mind, this Monday (08) the K-pop group (G)I-DLE released the single “Klaxon”, from the mini-album “[I SWAY]”, which perfectly captures this mood.

A CNN Chinese singer YUQI said this is the perfect song to enjoy while driving or going to the beach with friends. In the video, they literally stop traffic and if they came to stroll along Avenida Paulista the same would probably happen. But, for now, there are no confirmed show dates here – although they once again assure that they do intend to see Brazilian fans in person in the near future.

In a chat with K-Tudo CNN, SOYEON, MIYEON, MINNIE, YUQI and SHUHUA talked about the comeback, what they expect from their third world tour and goals for the future. Check it out:

Can you tell us more about the name and concept of this comeback, “Klaxon”?

YUQI: The main concept of this comeback is the essence of summer! It’s a perfect song to enjoy while driving or going to the beach with friends.

You guys are always very involved in the production, composition and writing of the lyrics. How did each member contribute to the creative process for this comeback?

SOYEON: Just like the previous album, our members participated in composing and writing the lyrics, and I was in charge of producing ‘Klaxon’.

Have you ever experienced writer’s block? How did you overcome it?

SOYEON: I face a creative block every day, and whenever I finish a song, I feel like the next one will be my limit. Instead of overcoming it, I approach it as solving one problem at a time. With time, I believe I will succeed.

YUQI: I’ve faced creative blocks! At first, I made music because I thought it was fun, but now there are times when it feels like a burden. Still, I put a lot of effort into my work because I’m passionate about sharing good music with everyone.

It’s been six years. What’s it like looking back and seeing your songs represent different phases you’ve been through?

MIYEON: When I look back at albums with different concepts and phases, I remember the time and memories we spent together. It makes me proud and nostalgic. It also makes me want to try even harder in the future.

MINNIE: I’ve always dreamed of being a singer since I was little, so realizing that dream is incredibly rewarding.

SHUHUA: Since it’s been six years, I have mixed feelings when I look back at our work. It’s hard to believe that six years have already passed. I try to do my best and enjoy every moment.

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up and how does your current career compare to that dream?

SHUHUA: I think I had countless dreams when I was young. However, being a K-POP idol was the right choice I made, so I’m happy with my decision and don’t regret it.

As K-POP idols, you have your on-stage personas, but you also have personal lives. How different are your on-stage personas from your off-stage lives?

MIYEON: I don’t think there’s a big difference, because I act the same way at work and at home, HAHA.

YUQI: I feel excited and happy both on and off stage. Although there are difficult times, I generally maintain a positive and cheerful personality and approach life with a smile, so I don’t see much difference between being on stage and off stage.

What new goals do you have for the future, whether in your career or personal life?

MINNIE: My goal has always been to have a long and successful career with (G)I-DLE, and I personally would like to release a solo album and perform on my own someday.

SHUHUA: Compared to being a K-POP idol, I think there will be different challenges and more entertainment in acting, so I want to explore filming TV series or movies in the future.

What would you say is (G)I-DLE’s greatest superpower?

SOYEON: I think our biggest superpower is that we are a group that does what we love and makes it unique.

SHUHUA: I believe that being five together as (G)I-DLE is our greatest strength, as we all have extremely captivating personalities.

We saw the announcement about the new tour. What are you most looking forward to experiencing on this tour?

MIYEON: Since this is our third tour, I’m looking forward to creating more memories and hoping we can enjoy it even more. I’m also excited to show our fans a new performance.

MINNIE: Since this is our third world tour, the venues have gotten a lot bigger, so I’m looking forward to performing at more NEVERLANDs and showcasing the different facets of (G)I-DLE.

Finally, send a message to your Brazilian fans!

MINNIE: Thank you for always supporting us with such patience. We will work harder to visit NEVERLAND in Brazil in the future! Please wait for us a little longer and we love you so much!

SOYEON: Thank you to our fans in Brazil for supporting us from afar. We are very grateful. We will definitely meet in person, so please look forward to it.

YUQI: We always appreciate your support from all over the world and have always wanted to meet NEVERLAND in Brazil. We are sorry that we haven’t had the opportunity yet, but we will do our best to create more chances in the future. Please wait just a little longer for us.
