Soloist Kwon Eunbi finally made her first comeback on April 4 with her second mini-album ‘Color’. She has come a long way from being the leader of IZ*ONE -- one of the biggest K-pop groups -- to turning heads with her solo debut. The teasers for ‘Color’ were especially ethereal as they depicted an image of Eunbi as the ‘Goddess of Spring’.
Kwon Eunbi’s second mini-album ‘Color’ contains the title track ‘Glitch’ and five more tracks namely ‘The Colours of Light’, ‘Magnetic’, ‘Speed of Love’, ‘Colors’ and ‘OFF’.
MEAWW got a chance to ask her about the album’s concept, her music style and her dream collaboration. In an exclusive interview with MEAWW, Eunbi opens up about picking new genres, her way of relaxing after a comeback, her favourite prop from the ‘Glitch’ music video set and more.
MEAWW: You take the avatar of a 'Goddess of Spring' in ‘Color’. The concept also resonates with the spring season. Which season is your favorite and why?
EUNBI: My favorite season is winter. I like Christmas, so winter is my favorite!
MEAWW: The choreography for ‘Glitch’ is quite fluid. Other than the highlight point, do you have any other favorite dance move from the choreography?
EUNBI: There is a dance break park after the ‘Glitch’ break, and I find it very cool. Please look out for it!
MEAWW: When it comes to dance forms, which of the dance forms are your favorites? Is there any dance form that you want to learn?
EUNBI: I like to dance that has many hand gestures, so I like tutting, voguing and whacking dance forms. I have a desire to learn a little more deeply about tutting.
MEAWW: For a person who is listening to Kwon Eunbi for the first time, what words or adjectives would you pick to describe your music?
EUNBI: Kwon Eunbi's music is colorful and I think it can be expressed that the music is very beautiful.
MEAWW: If there arises a chance for a collaboration, which artist would you like to collaborate with?
EUNBI: I would like to collaborate with Nucksal (he is a popular hip-hop and rap artist).
MEAWW: After picking the retro-jazz genre for ‘Door’, how did you come to pick UK-Garage music for ‘Glitch’?
EUNBI: I wanted to try a new genre that I had never tried before.
MEAWW: After completing all your promotions for ‘Glitch’, what do you plan to do for relaxation?
EUNBI: I want to go on a trip to rest after this activity is over.
MEAWW: When writing lyrics for a song, what do you do if you get stuck in between? What do you do to help you get out of writer's block?
EUNBI: When I reach a hurdle while composing, I take a break and eat something delicious. Eating delicious food makes me feel better, so if I can't come up with an idea, I take a break for a while without forcing myself to think about it.
MEAWW: Are there any props or costumes that you coveted while filming the music video?
EUNBI: I wore glove accessories while filming the music video, and those props were beautiful.
MEAWW: Finally, Please share a message for your fans!
EUNBI: I have finally made a comeback with my second mini-album ‘Color’. It contains a lot of colorful music, so please show a lot of love and interest.
