Yein's Intense, Legendary Performance on Queendom

This is the first time that our maknae is getting this good of a response so I'm feeling excited

Modern dance major Jeong Yein who debuted after only 4 months of training
Lovelyz's treasure maknae Jeong Yein who has high self-esteem

A freaking pretty (jon-ye-in) celebrity (yeon-ye-in) is Jeong Yein,, Please stan Jeong Yein

[Pann] Jeong Yein business post is here

[+113 | -6] The vibe of Yein's intro is awesomeㅠ

[+101 | -9] From Kei to Yein, they were unrivaled today. This is the first time that they're getting a clean response like this so I'm touched, and I'm thankful for the girls too...
∟ [+13 | -1] I'm a Linus and my heart trembled every time a Lovelyz post was uploaded before...ㅠㅠ OP, thank you so muchㅠㅠㅠㅠ

[+72 | -9] Seriously, our Yein is good at dancing, has a pretty face, and her personality is a freaking cutieㅜㅜ

∟ [+11 | -0] Ah, I'm a Once but I watched this Meltin' Fancam and she was really freaking prettyㅠㅠㅠㅠ She suited the color blue sky so much, looked pretty with her long wavy hair, and looked soft. She just looked really pretty at this timeㅠ

[+98 | -3] I hope this becomes the best comment.. Hair-raising Jeong Yein at the end...

[+71 | -1] It's random, but I thought about what Joy said to Yein while crying. "I've always been worried about you"ㅠㅠ How true was that when the 'Sixth Sense' stage was out,,She received all kinds of swears, so...I think she clearly showcased her ability on today's stage, so I'm very glad. She's the rediscovery in itself

[+63 | -3] Personally, she stood out the most among the performance members today. I feel that she made the right decision by being different and doing contemporary dance, something only she can do. She really did great with it too so I was surprised. Her stage was charming

[+57 | -3] A gif I have of her doing a shadow dance with Bangtan's Jimin during a year-end joint stage in the past. Their lines are honestly really wonderful

∟ [+12 | -0] So this person was Yein.. Whoa.. Her line is beautiful.

[+44 | -8] No, what's with people calling her ugly?? Are there only Kim Taehee and Lee Nayoung around you...? She's f*cking pretty, though. Honestly, I think she's the top when it comes to idols with monolids

[+40 | -0] I think rather than an innocent and cute concept, she suits this kind of elegant and luxurious stage more. Not a strong girl crush, but something luxurious and expensive

[+39 | -0] She's really pretty...I fell for her during today's stage too. But weirdly, I didn't know her when she was [promoting] with Lovelyz. When she showed a little sexiness at the 6 Puzzle meeting on Queendom and at today's modern dance stage, I wondered if it's really her color. It's fits her so well. It doesn't show that much when she's doing Lovelyz concept

[+33 | -15] Actually, I don't understand why Jeong Yein gets cursed at when she does something sexy. Doesn't she suit it pretty well because she has mean and dark expressions?

[+32 | -2] For real, it seems like she tore Queendom apart today. Honestly, it's easy for the first performer to be overshadowed, but she was so strong that she's the most memorable

[+27 | -2] I was waiting for the response for her ㅋㅋ She blew up on Queendom. That's great

[+27 | -5] I knew since Candy Jelly Love that Jeong Yein would rise. I'm proud of her for no reason^^ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Anyway, Jeong Yein is a maknae with good visuals, physicals, and whose dancing line is really pretty like a main dancer!

When I look up our maknae on all community sites where women are the majority users, everyone is only praising herㅠㅠㅠㅠ I'm happy
She did so well

[+44 | -2] GoraniㅠㅠㅠㅠYou did so well. I did look forward for this when I read the fan accounts, but I got freaking goosebumps at the intro,,,I thought I was glad that she didn't get cursed at, but to even hear good words for her, it makes me so happyㅠㅠ

[+39 | -1] You normally forget the first performance but for real, you can't forget this. She did freaking well with the stage

[+37 | -1] She did freaking well. I went, "Heok!" at the intro

[+18 | -0] I pity Lovelyz's fans so muchㅠㅠ Lovelyz were picked on so much on women community sites since debut so the fans are like that. When Lovelyz fans see the responses from yesterday and today, they're all in disbelief and are amazed

[+16 | -0] I'm crazy proud of her...

[+10 | -2] Woollim, please wake up and don't just push your rookies, take care of the kids that you already have too. You have so many talented kids but why none sticks.. Don't lose your talents anymore.. Give us THE LIVE and dance contents... Nowadays, everyone is doing dance contents but Woollim.

[+8 | -0] Why are you wearing red eyeshadow? (T/N: the first line of the OST) Right? Anyway, as soon as I heard that I thought, "Whoa, this is awesome. This is a sign of something huge." She really did so well

[+8 | -0] I think I'm gonna cry. This is the first time that we're getting clean responses like this. How much did the girls suffer. Seriously, great job, our Lovedungiesㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

[+8 | -0] I'm a fan of Lovelyz since their debut and I'm so touched that I'm about to cry ㅠㅠㅠㅠOur Yein did well and you performed contemporary dance that you love ㅠㅠJeong Yein is the best

[+5 | -0] No matter what, the most memorable ones are Soojin and Yein....

[+5 | -0] Her dancing line is pretty. Her face is also pretty and I need Yein to rise even more

[+4 | -0] I agree that she did really well!!

I'm in denial about being an Idle fan, but
YooA was freaking awesome ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I actually didn't know that YooA was a main dancer..She dances so well

[+98 | -13] If you only look at the impact, Jeong Yein was a wall. The feeling is like a menu in Yupdduk (T/N: a tteokbokki restaurant famous for its spicy tteokbokki) that says that it's a mild tteokbokki and you eat it without thinking because you thought it wasn't gonna be spicy but it's f*cking spicy. For real....

[+92 | -5] Personally, if you only put Soojin and Yein's stages, Soojin is good at flirting and she performed very well, but I knew that Soojin would do well. Yein, I absolutely didn't expect her to be the member that performed the best, so the impact was even bigger. But everyone did well ㅇㅇ

[+32 | -0] Jeong Yein doing contemporary dance with Lady Vengeance was unique and cool

[+30 | -3] Soojin and Yein did well, but I think for expressions and song vibe, Soojin's was more alive

[+28 | -1] Jeong Yein.....

[+25 | -2] I'm not a fan, but this was uploaded onto a tweet in the trending topic and I saved this as if I was bewitchedㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[+23 | -1] But first, they didn't have any black hole so everyone did well, and I think the one who did the best was Yein. She was different with her contemporary dance and the narration in the beginning was really...bb

[+22 | -1] Everyone did well but Yein and Soojin..ㅇㅇ YooA also did well, it's just that I can't think of anything other than her face is really round and cute face ㅋㅋㅋ큐ㅠ

[+19 | -0] Yein.. Honestly, I saw that Lovelyz failed their 'Sixth Sense' so I wasn't expecting her this time, but Yein's song and choreo went so well with each other ㅇㅇ The song choice was good too

[+15 | -0] Honestly, it's Jeong Yein

[+12 | -0] I'm a fan of YooA but honestly, it's Jeong Yein.. A seasoned major is solid

[+11 | -2] I'm an Idle fan but Jeong Yein is #1

[+10 | -0] The friend who surrogates for Park Bom didn't have any solo stage so except for that unfortunate thing, I think everyone did really well. If it's about impact, Soojin and Yein are neck to neck, in my opinion

[+10 | -0] Yein, Soojin

[+10 | -0] Jeong Yein

[+8 | -0] Yein.. Whoa, I seriously watched this with my mouth wide open

Personally, it's Yein for me

[INTERVIEW] news1 - October 2019 (Kei)

Kei (Kim Jiyeon) of group Lovelyz has released her solo album. She is the first in Lovelyz, debuted for 5 years since 2014, to have a solo album and it's also her first album by herself.

Kei (Kim Jiyeon) will be promoting together with her real name as a solo this time. She is determined to showcase a different color of 'myself' and also Lovelyz's Kei.

Kei (Kim Jiyeon) releases 'I Go' off of her first solo album on the 8th at 6 PM and sings about hope and consolation. She will show a stronger vocal color with a different color than the pure one she uses for Lovelyz.

We recently met with Kei (Kim Jiyeon) where we could see her love for her album and she talked about appearing on Mnet's 'Queendom', and her innocent and cute charms were shown.

Below is a series of Q&A.

- You came out with your real name for your solo album.

▶ I worried about this a lot, whether it'd be good to come out with Lovelyz's Kei. I worried about this a lot with the CEO. He said, 'It'd be nice if you come out with Jiyeon and get Kim Jiyeon to be recognized', so I believed in what he said and ended up using my real name. I can't miss the name Kei, so I ended up coming out with Kim Jiyeon (Kei). I think you'll be able to see a lot more of Kim Jiyeon's side.

- What's the point that differentiates [the solo] from Lovelyz?

▶ I worried a lot about style. I'm a member who doesn't change, and this is my first time going blonde and also not having bangs. I mostly sing prettily while promoting as Lovelyz. I wanted to give off a strong, powerful feeling in this solo album, so I tried hard to do it. The music is different too. I gave a lot of power in the title track. The bridge has a soft sensibility, but I also used a strong, low vocal tone.

- How much did you prepare for this?

▶ I prepared for this for around a year. It wasn't decided then that it was gonna be a solo album, and when I received this song, it wasn't confirmed as well, so I prepared for it without any promises. When I first received this song, it felt so amazing. I was very worried. The members gave me a lot of strength. I worried a lot, but they told me that I would do well enough. They assured me by giving me a lot of courage. I'm going to work harder as much as I've prepared for this for a long time. I put my sincerity into everything. It ended up being released because it's the right timing. I didn't even think that it would be released. They told me that it was time for me to release it. When it was confirmed, I felt assured. I thought, "When will it be released?" The song's arrangement used to be something for a spring release. They re-arranged the song to fit the current season and they made it grander and richer. It made me want to release it as soon as possible.

- What is a story that you want to focus on?

▶ I tried to put a lot of stories of hopes and dreams. It contains dreams as well. I have my own goal, but I feel like I want to repay the strength that I've received.

- You have to fill the stage by yourself.

▶ There's no mic other than mine. I'm still working on it even now. I worry a lot about whether I can fill the stage by myself for 4 minutes. Rather than acting, I'm going to show it naturally. I want to leave it up to what appears when I sing. I think a lot about my members. I lean a lot on them. My love for them has grown bigger. I also felt more gratitude for them.

- You didn't have any featuring and just sang by yourself.

▶ I wanted to fill this album with only my voice. The company also thought that, so [the album] only has my voice. I had a lot of opportunities, so I wanted to fill my first start with only my voice.

- Who gave you the biggest support?

▶ Soul-unnie gave me a lot of support. We've been living together for 5 years, so she knows me so well and I can feel that she supports me even only through her gaze. I feel that even her existence itself is a strength for me. The members are also looking forward to it and are curious, but they didn't make it obvious on purpose. I didn't talk about it because I was worried that it would seem like I was boasting about it. I wanted them to listen to [the album] on the day it comes out but as soon as they heard it, they said, "I think this is something that Kei can do well." They also hoped that I would be successful [with the album].

- Is there any other Lovelyz member who wants to release a solo album?

▶ I haven't heard anything about it. They all have talents that can't be missed out on. I started it off, so I hope they'll go have opportunities. So I have a feeling that I want to do better. I think that I need to do really well so they would get the opportunities.

- You're appearing on 'Queendom'.

▶ I'm straightforward like my title song 'I Go'. I'm having fun tirelessly. I can't think that it's hard. It was really fun and because it was my first time, I learned a lot. There's a lot of groups with excellent skills there and there's a lot of styles that I haven't tried yet, so I''m having a lot of fun. The members are doing it tirelessly.

- The 'Sixth Sense' stage on 'Queendom' was impressive.

▶ I tended to be like, "Let's put Lovelyz's color in," and some members thought that we should show a different side of us. It was really interesting. I have no regrets. It's such a shame about the responses, but [the responses] helped me a lot while preparing for the solo album by pointing out where I should do better. I've only ever sang easily but while watching the ['Sixth Sense] stage, I thought that there was a lot that needed fixing.

- Which part was pointed out?

▶ There were a lot saying how I need to sing stronger and that I need to study more on making expressions on stage. I made expressions that I usually use for Lovelyz stages unknowingly. How to make expressions that fit the song.

- It looks like the rivalry between the girl groups on 'Queendom' is not severe.

▶ Still, the broadcast tend to show us dissing [each other]. It's still due to the evil editing. We [Lovelyz] are like friends, and we don't have many chances to get close with other girl groups, so we talked about the hardships while doing 'Queendom' and we talked while doing the stage, so we leaned on each other. It just feels like we're watching performances without any competition. I felt the rivalry. We're doing it while having fun.

- Is there absolutely no war of nerves?

▶ We're busy doing our own stages. I personally don't feel it. It could be that I'm not sharp (oblivious), but we saw each other's stages. Sometimes it helps to be oblivious. You don't get hurt when you're oblivious.

- What do you think about watching Kei on 'Queendom'?

▶ I only told myself to have a positive attitude, but I didn't know that I have this kind of aegyo.

- Your harmony with Hwasa was impressive.

▶ We had fun filming it. I thanked Hwasa too, and Hwasa had a really busy schedule on that day and was tired, so I joked around with her more. But the show made it look like Hwasa was exhausted.

- What's your color with Hwasa?

▶ She has a really different color than me. That friend thought of the performance and drew her vision for the stage. My style is just to focus more on singing. Hwasa coached me a lot. She accepted me well and I've wanted to be close with her from a long time. I learned a lot from her and it was a great opportunity for me.

- Do you have anyone you want to resemble while preparing for your solo album?

▶ BoA-sunbaenim. She can be into every genre and what I respect about her is that she doesn't lose her original intention. I want to keep trying in order to be successful like BoA-sunbaenim. I want to do a few genres. I studied BoA-sunbaenim a lot by watching her.

- Which b-side do you love more?

▶ There's a song called 'Papermoon'. It's my first try on R&B. The title track required a lot of strength but I loosened up with 'Papermoon'. I communicated a lot with the composer and we tried an arrangement that we haven't tried before. This is a song that made me think, "So I can also do a different singing style." It's the only song with a choreography. It has kind of a sexy vibe, so I think I can show you something that I haven't shown so far.

- Are you expecting the charts results too?

▶ I've decided not to be attached to it. I'm already very happy that I can go solo, which has been my dream. Even the CEO said that this album was to showcase my potential. It would be nice if it could be followed by good results, but I want to show you the side of me who is singing sincerely.

- What kind of evaluation would you want to receive?

▶ I hope you wouldn't think that you're alone and that you can cheer up after listening to my song. I want you to know that I'm by your side. I want to keep singing if I can give strength even to one or two people.

- If you can look back at your life as a singer for the past 5 years?

▶ I worked hard. I am hugely proud of Lovelyz. I thought, "So I'm doing well." The members' trust in me is immense. My job from now on is to protect Lovelyz and grow.

- What do you think is the hardest thing for you?

▶ I can't eat jokbal. When I eat my favorite food, jokbal, I eat it while drinking milk, but I don't eat jokbal anymore to lose my cheek fat, to look mature. The hardest thing is to not eat jokbal. I'm going to hold back for only 3 weeks.

- You occasionally drink with your members, right?

▶ I'll sleep after just taking a sip. The members do drink at the dorm sometimes, but everyone other than me drinks well. Alcohol isn't delicious. Milk is way more delicious.

- Woollim has a new girl group, Rocket Punch. Do you have any special feelings about it?

▶ It's amazing. It's my first time to have female juniors, so I want to help them, but we're not close. The kids can't eat a lot and it's hard at first. I can't sleep well too, so I can't give advice, and I want to treat them to a meal. I think the coolest thing is to treat them. They're doing well even without my advice. I'm fond of them because we're labelmates, and they're all doing so well, so I hope they'll just improve their health.

- Do you have any goal for your first album?

▶ Like I said, I want to show my potential in doing solo. I want people to think, "So she can go solo." I want them to have expectations and think, "What kind of stage can she do?" I want to be able to meet those expectations. I want to continue [promoting] as a solo and as Lovelyz.

[INTERVIEW] SportsQ - October 2019 (Kei)

Lovelyz's Kei (Kim Jiyeon) who is promoting solo for the first time since her debut 5 years ago, created a warm atmosphere with her junior labelmates, group Rocket Punch.

At the round interview to celebrate the release of her first mini album ‘Over and Over’ on the afternoon of the 8th at a cafe near the Woollim Entertainment company building at Seongsan-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, Lovelyz's Kei (Kim Jiyeon) said, “I'm still not close with the Rocket Punch members so they haven't heard the song yet. However, I heard that they're ‘looking forward to it’ from my manager. I want to treat them to a meal.”

Rocket Punch debuted last August as Woollim Entertainment's newest girl group with their album ‘PINK PUNCH’. We thought she would be boasting about her closeness with her co-workers Rocket Punch, but Kei (Kim Jiyeon) said, “We don't have a lot of chance to meet each other due to our busy schedules,” revealing her sadness about it, and said “When they have a stage or a showcase, I personally go there and give my support. Such support is a huge strength for singers.”

“I'm fond of them so much because they're my labelmates. Even if I'm not close to them, I continuously monitor their performances. They're doing so well. I want to become close with them through this solo album. I want to treat them to a meal not because I want to give them advice [but just because I want to.]” (Laughs)

To the question “The feeling of responsibility must be unusual for your first junior girl group” Kei (Kim Jiyeon) particularly said, “ I want them to think, ‘I want to become like Lovelyz's Kei-sunbaenim’ so I think I can't help but work harder. I want to become a senior that juniors can take examples from. When we were trainees, we dreamed to debut while watching Infinite-sunbaenim. We keep working hard even now to become seniors that Rocket Punch can look up to like that.”

Kei (Kim Jiyeon) wants her junior girl group to take examples from her. Then, in contrast, who is her role model?

Lovelyz's Kei (Kim Jiyeon) said, “My role model is BoA-sunbaenim. She's done so many different genres already and even now, she doesn't stop attempting things. I want to learn that attitude. Moreover, I want to become an artist that can be into various genres perfectly.” She confessed that while preparing for her debut, she participated in a lot of BoA's promotions.

Kei (Kim Jiyeon) said that not only Rocket Punch, she also received heartwarming support from her Lovelyz members whom are like family to her.

She said, “I wanted them to listen to the songs on the release day so I've been covering them up and they were so curious that they sulked. So I [eventually] had them listen to it and they said ‘It's a music that Kei can do well’, ‘This is such a Kei song’, ‘The song is so good’ and it gave me strength. They energized me by saying ‘Don't be discouraged.’”

The will-filled mini album of Lovelyz's Kei, who will showcase a different image from her existing one with her real name Kim Jiyeon, ‘Over and Over’ is available on various online music sites today (8th) at 6 PM.

[INTERVIEW] 10Asia - October 2019 (Kei)

Kei (Kim Jiyeon) who said that she was concentrating only on the song that she does the best through her first solo album.

Kei of Lovelyz released her first solo album ‘Over and Over’on the 8th at 6 PM after debuting in 2014. She is the first Lovelyz member to go solo (post-debut). Kei will promote solo as ‘Kei (Kim Jiyeon)’ to show her as the solo singer Kim Jiyeon and Lovelyz's main vocalist.

Her title track is ‘I Go’. It's a song dreaming about a hopeful future with the lyrics ‘Gather the lights and I've come closer to you’. Kei (Kim Jiyeon) made changes to her singing style to emphasize the strength of her voice, where you can feel it even in her beautiful voice. We met with Kei (Kim Jiyeon), who said that she wants to instill expectations through this album at a cafe in Seongsan-dong, Seoul, in the afternoon of the 8th.

10. ‘Over and Over’ is your first solo album, so I think the feeling is different.

Releasing a solo album has always been my dream. I think I dream about it every day. It still hasn't dawned on me and it feels like I've been relieved of my sorrows for 5 years. I usually tend to lack confidence, but my members said, "Jiyeonie, if it's you, you can do it," and they gave me a lot of encouragements. My affection for Lovelyz has grown so big. (Laughs) I'm happy because I can feel a lot of love in this album.

10. How did you decide to use your real name Kim Jiyeon together with Kei?

Kei is the name I'm known for, so I was wondering if coming out with the name Kei would be good or not. I worried about that a lot with the CEO (Lee Jungyeop). He said that he was hoping that the world knows that Kim Jiyeon is me, so I became more assured and I ended up using my real name. However, I don't want to miss "Lovelyz's Kei" as well, so I use it too. People will slowly assimilate with Kim Jiyeon. (Laughs)

10. What do you think about being the first Lovelyz member to go solo?

I think I've showed a bit of possibility of a solo through my OST participation or collaborations. I understand that even among fans, the expectation for my solo is high. I sew the first button so I hope the other members can have opportunities as well. My members are all too good to be buried. Haha.

10. You garnered issue with your first attempt at going blonde.

I'm one of the Lovelyz members who sticks to my image. However, I also want to show a different image this time, so I accepted my company's suggestion. I was really scared to change, but while preparing this solo album, my spirit to challenge became bigger. I was also able to break my fear of adventure.

10. How did you decide on ‘I Go’ as your title track?

As soon as I heard it for the first time, I was sure that it would become the title track and the CEO said that he wanted it to be the title track too. I was confident that I could do that song well. The lyrics and the melody are like a dream that I've always had. I am able to do activities with strength until now thanks to the people around me and also my fans. I want to return that gratitude to the public also, so that was why I chose the song with dreams and hope in it.

10. When it comes to going solo, there's a lot of idols who participate in writing the lyrics and composing as well, but what is your reason for only singing?

I've also tried learning to play a few instruments. But I saw myself being busy following the trend. I felt that I was losing myself. I think again about how I'm the happiest when I'm singing, so I wanted to focus on just singing. I'm a fool who only knows singing. (Laughs) But I feel good and happy.

10. You said that your singing style changed a lot for the title track?

When I'm promoting with Lovelyz, I emphasized on singing in a pretty and fresh way. In my solo album, I tried to give a lot of energy to my voice and to make it sounding more mature. I work hard in taking care of my throat so it'd be fun to see my changed image including my singing style and how I convey my emotions. I tried hard to diet too, even eating only one energy bar in a day.

Kei (Kim Jiyeon) who hoped that a lot of her juniors would dream to be ‘The Second Kei’.

10. You garnered attention for "winning" Mamamoo's Hwasa on Mnet ‘Queendom’. You also gained the nickname ‘Straightforward Kei’.

My personality isn't like that originally. I'm quiet and shy around strangers. (Laughs) But when I work, I am straightforward. I've been a fan of Hwasa's since a long time ago. She's a friend who knows how to perform when she goes on stage, so I tried hard to win her love. (Laughs) Hwasa said to me, “I think if Kei does a face that you haven't tried before like this, we can see it,” and stuff, she coached me a lot. I'm thankful for appearing on ‘Queendom’.

10. What do you want to make come true through this promotion?

Like the terms ‘The Second IU’ ‘The Second BoA’ ‘The Second Taeyeon’, I hope there would also be ‘The Second Kei’. I want to become a unique artist that even a lot of juniors would dream of becoming.

10. What's your plan for the rest of the year?

My goal is to finish the promotion for my first solo album safely. I don't want to stop doing activities. I also want to comeback and promote as Lovelyz for a long time if I can.

Kim Jiyeon - I Go lyrics (HAN/ROM/ENG)


아무도 날 바라봐 주지 않을 때
이 시간 길게만 느껴져
어디에도 내 마음 둘 곳 없을 때
그대가 내게 내밀었던
그 두 손을 따뜻하게
놓지 않을 수 있게

끝이 보이지 않는 길이더라도
멈추지 말고
Over and over again

지금 날 비추는
이 조그마한 빛들이 모이면
너에게 가까이 다가갈래
그땐 나를 꼭 안아줘
다가올 그날에
우리가 마주할 그 순간에
같은 곳을 바라보며
우리 웃을 수 있게 l Go

조금은 지쳤다고 생각이 들 때
이대로 멈추고 싶어져
아주 가끔은 주저앉고 싶을 때
그대가 내게 보여줬던
그 미소를 영원하게
잃지 않을 수 있게

높은 하늘을 날아가는 새처럼
멈추지 말고
Over and over again

지금 날 비추는
이 조그마한 빛들이 모이면
너에게 가까이 다가갈래
그땐 나를 꼭 안아줘
다가올 그날에
우리가 마주할 그 순간에
같은 곳을 바라보며
우리 웃을 수 있게 I Go

너를 가득 담아서
이 마음 전해줄게
달려가 너에게

지금 날 비추는
훌쩍 커버린 저 빛들을 모아
너에게 가까이 다가왔어
지금 나를 꼭 안아줘
다가온 이 날에
우리가 마주한 이 순간에
같은 곳을 바라보며
우리 웃을 수 있게 I Go

When no one is looking at me
This time only feels long
When I have no place to put my heart in
Your two hands that you extended to me
So I won’t let go of them warmly

Even when I can’t see the end of this road
Don’t stop
Over and over again

When these small lights
That shine on me now gather
I will come closer to you
Hold me tight then
In the coming day
In the moment where we will meet again
So we can smile
While looking at the same place, l Go

When I think that I’m a little tired
I end up wanting to stop just like this
When I sometimes want to cave in
Your smile that you showed me
So I won’t lose it

Like a bird that flies high in the sky
Don’t stop
Over and over again
When these small lights
That shine on me now gather
I will come closer to you
Hold me tight then
In the coming day
In the moment where we will meet again
So we can smile
While looking at the same place, l Go

I’ll convey this heart
That has been filled by you
I’m running to you

Gather all those lights that shine on me
That have grown bigger
I’ve come closer to you
Hold me tight now
On the day that has come
In the moment where we met
So we can smile
While looking at the same place, I Go

What Lovelinus Have Gotten Used to for over 4 Years Now

They're like this on a regular basis
They instead reined in on Queendom

(The CEO is watching this
That's why you called us in, right?
Damn it)

The rage ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

(We apologize)

A belated apology

[theqoo] The reason why Lovelyz fans are not that surprised to see Lovelyz being insiders on Queendom.jpg

1. Crazy ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. Of course the fans are not surprisedㅋㅋI'm freaking surprisedㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋSo they're normally like that

4. They're so unexpectedㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. zzzzzzzzzzzThese girls, even Seo Jisoo is like that as much as Lee Mijooㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. Freaking funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. If you watch the video, it's really funnyㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. How did these kids do the innocent 'Ah-Choo'ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. I'm a Lovelyz fan butㅋㅋㅋ I didn't even know that they were like this in front of other teams tooㅋㅋㅋ

10. I think Yein is funny ㅋ

11. CrazyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋThey said they weren't drinkingㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋFreaking hilariousㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

12. Ah, f*ck, what's with their tensionㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋI didn't know Jisoo was someone like thatㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋI knew Yein was like that because of Queendomㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
∟ Originally, if it's about tension, Jisoo is the top in Lovelyz ㅋㅋㅋㅋ To the point that even Mijoo gets left behind

13. Don't throw away even a single grain of riceㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋAre they crazyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

14. Heol, this is my first time seeing this. They're so cute..ㅜㅜ

15. For realㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ If they had Mijoo and JIN here it would be chaos

16. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋI'm sinking into them recentlyㅋㅋㅋ

17. F*cking funny and f*cking cute, seriouslyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

18. CrazyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋThey had this kind of image?ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

19. NoㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋThis is freaking funnyㅋㅋㅋ

20.  They're unexpectedly funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I'm really sinking into themㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Lovelyz Gain Attention for Their Cheerfulness and Social Skills

(You ate kimbap with me too~!!
Can you lock the door?
This is a tension out of this world)

A picture that is like a call for help

([The gesture too] Oguogu (baby sound)
[A ban on aegyo] No, no, no, absolutely not!)

Mamamoo's Hwasa who became paralyzed because of Kei

(Makes sure to link arms side by side)

[Kei] finally wins and succeeded

(What about 'Six Puzzle's greeting?
[Abhors] Ah, anything but that! Anything but that! Please!!)

Moonbyul who's taken aback by Yein's way of greeting

(This is the end of it...
Shall we start today?)

Shall I rip your legs apart?

(You were really sexy just now!
The hidden sexiness she found while doing splits)

Her next target is AOA's Chanmi

(The members are so pretty...
[Done organizing] We're all pretty!
We're Six Puzzle, no)

We're all pretty so don't worry

([Plan succeeded] The tension is suddenly rising!
In a noisy meeting)

The other members are extraordinary too

(Oh! I'm smack dab in the center!)

Jiae who prefers the center seat in the express bus

([Yuqi] Songpyeon (food eaten during Chuseok)

When I went to the Queendom workshop I said that I wanted to eat songpyeon and Jiae-unnie really bought them for me on Tuesdayㅠㅠㅠ
I love you, Jiae-unnieㅠㅠㅠ Lovelyz-sunbaenims are the best~~~><)

She gifted songpyeon
for G(Idle)'s Yuqi who was sitting next to her

([Lastly] AOA has arrived!)

They see that seniors AOA have arrived

(Yah yah, I'm hiding, I'm hiding)

Mijoo thinks about surprising them
(She's not close with AOA)



(Welcome, sunbaenim~)


(Friendship +1 through snacks)

How Lovelyz become close with other people
- Give them food

([All of a sudden] P...please talk to me informally...
Binnie&Sujeong's <Nice to Meet You, Friend~)

Sujeong very easily becomes friends with Oh My Girl's Binnie

(Jimin X Mijoo who look like they're having fun by themselves
Unnie, your face is kinda like... a baby face)

At that time, Mijoo is showering Jimin with praises

(Thanks~ Do more~ Do more~)

Jimin is very pleased

([Please give me the beat] A baby face~!)

Once more


A thumbs up ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

([Shuhua X Babysoul] What about the conversation between those two shy people...?)

Leader Babysoul
who's usually extremely shy around strangers and the members worry about her....

(Unnie... Ah, it's sunbaenim...)

A useless worry

([Tension rich] The part that you like about each other's features!)

They got a penalty

(It's a penalty, but...)

Advancing without hesitation

(For my Shuhua.... Her eyes are really pretty...)

Idle's Shuhua is moved

(Ooh~ This is so heart fluttering~!)

Jisoo who fools with them after seeing that

([Confident] Shall we do it?
Sujeong and Binnie who have decided to make kimchi stew first
Jisoo, Arin are in charge of the tempura)

Lovelyz who take initiatives in making the food after they have arrived at their accommodation

(Welcome! We're the best Healthcare Team!)

Lovelyz's leader Babysoul
who is the shyest around strangers but is in the Healthcare team

(The first customer of Soul Massage is Hyojung
The customer is very satisfied at the hard taste of her hands
A massage service that won't lose contact with the customer in a fiery-like support)

The hard taste of her hands is incredible

(..What are you doing...? Is it good?)

They're hugging so naturally
People would think they're members of the same team

Insiders don't usually care about the camera when they eat

(You have to chew the meat for the taste to come out)


([Ah, the long awaited] Don Spike's famous bbq ribs
Lip service (T/N: "rib" and "lip" are pronounced the same in Korean)
(Did I hear wrong)

She has no mercy for old man gags

Oh My Girl's Mimi - Idle's Soyeon - Lovelyz's JIN

Oh My Girl's Arin - Idle's Yuqi - Lovelyz's Jiae

Oh My Girl's Hyojung - Lovelyz's Kei

Kei - Park Bom

Idle's Minnie - Lovelyz's Kei

They really took a lot of pictures with other groups

Lovelyz's Jiae who shows off
the group picture that she said she took on her own phone

Such insiders ㅋㅋㅋ

[Instiz] Lovelyz were extremely more insiders* than anyone else during the Queendom workshop.jpg
(*Insiders are people who are always up-to-date with the current trends and are also sociable)

1. Heol, this is really good to see. Anyway, Park Bom is really pretty

2. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋAll of the groups in Queendom are so charming these days and I like themㅠㅠ

3. SeriouslyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋThey're so cheerfulㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. Lovelyz are so cute ㅜㅜ I like the friendships! I have good impressions of them all after watching Queendom !

5. The extreme insiders who are playing around like this on V App...

∟ Moreover, their CEO was monitoring the broadcastㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. I have great impressions of Lovelyz after watching QueendomㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋOf course, everyone who appear there are likable, but Lovelyz in particular are...ㅜㅁㅜ Kei and Hwasa are too funny tooㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. What to do with their insider abilityㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. Everyone are cuteㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Meanwhile, why is Yein so prettyㅠㅠ

9. ㅋㅋㅋㅋI honestly didn't know that Lovelyz's personalities are like thatㅋㅋㅋ Seriously, all of them are insiders ㅋㅋㅋ Moreover, I was surprised to hear that Kei tends to be quiet in Lovelyz ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. That's a reversal of Lovelyz for meㅋㅋㅋ I thought they're the quietest in the world, except for Mijoo!

11. I love insider groups,,, Be happy, Lovedungies

12. I fell in love with Lovelyz after watching Queendom ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ Kei is so charming

13. SeriouslyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋLovelyz are power insiders...

14. Mijoo huggingㅋㅋㅋㅋ Seriously, if you only pass by, you'd think that she's [Hyojung's] memberㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

15. Yeah, these are Lovelyz's real selvesㅠㅠ Please care for the kids~~

16. Queendom would've been good if it was a reality show and not a competition showㅠㅠ Lovey-dovey, they're all so cute

17. The comments are hilariousㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

18. AhㅋㅋㅋㅋThey're the most cheerful. Their personalities are the best💕

19. The Lovelyz-Mamamoo relationship is so funnyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

20. I'm so jealous of their personalitiesss

21. Why am I jealous of Kei acting cute towards Hwasa? Can I also be involved with Kei?ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠShe said they ate the kimbap together. I will buy you everything on the Kimbap Cheongug (kimbap restaurant) menuㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

22. All of the Lovelyz members are lively and have good personalities, so they're insiders in itselfㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋCute

23. Oh, they're so noisy even just looking at the picturesㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋAdorableㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

24. It's a competition program but I love that they're becoming friends like thisㅠㅠㅠㅠ

25. I really like Lovelyz these daysㅠ They're so funny and so cute

26. I really ended up liking everyone in this show. Plus, I really liked seeing them being lovey-dovey last week and this week and I was happyㅠㅠㅠㅠOh, I hope it becomes a reality show like this instead of a competition show next week

27. I think I know why Lovelyz wanted to change their concept like thatㅋㅋㅋㅋ On top of Mijoo being a funny character, Kei is also rich with passion so their tensions are really highㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's so good to see their friendships and Lovelyz are so cute

28. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ They're full of passion, cute, and are good to see

29. Mamamoo suffering because of their passion is so funnyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

30. The killing point is them working hard to cook but eventually couldn't ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ They put the kimchi in before the water boiled ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

31. CuteㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠI supportㅠㅠㅠㅠthe friendships on Queendomㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

32. Ah, seriouslyㅋㅋㅋㅋ Why is it so lovely to see friendships among female idolsㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

33. I went to a music show to see my former bias group and I fell for Mijoo-ssiㅋㅋㅋ She rolled down the window and asked for everyone to love Lovelyz..

34. I ended up liking them all after watching QueendomㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋEveryone is really cuteㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

35. The personalities of all the Lovelyz members are very refreshing. It's so good to see!!

36. Whoa, Lovelyz are insiders... That's so unexpected. It's really amazing

37. Lovelyz are really charmingㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

38. Lovelyz are so cute and funㅋㅋㅋㅋ!

39. I will learn social skills by watching Lovelyz..

40. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋAh ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I burst out laughing seeing [Babysoul] being the shyest around strangers but in the Healthcare Teamㅠㅠㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

41. Doesn't the word "shy around strangers" have a different meaning for Lovelyz ^^ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋSo cuteㅋㅋㅋ

42. Queendom is a show for you to become a fan ㅠㅠㅜ

43. I thought it was only Mijooㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ All of them were all insiders..

44. Insilyz..ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋSo funnyㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

45. Ah, this is very funnyㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ A straightforward insider groupㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

46. This is good. Do they have to continue with the competition? It would've been hard. If there still had to be ranks, it'd be nice if no one would have to be eliminated

47. Hwasa's picture that is like a call for help is freaking funnyㅋㅋㅋ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

48. A show for people to become Lovelyz fansㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋThey're so cheerful

49. Insilyz Passionlyzㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

50. I didn't know Kei has that kind of personality. Her chemistry with Hwasa was so funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
