First, Cao Lu recalled how during her trainee days, she was deathly afraid of being cut from the group. She shared, "Honestly, before we debuted, I was constantly worried that I'd be cut from the group. I was the oldest of all the trainees then. To avoid any cause to be cut, I didn't let myself make even the smallest mistakes. I lived in the practice room. After I became a trainee, I didn't even date."
The idol, known for her bright and lively image on variety shows, also talked about the hardships she faced at first, saying, "I had to be good on variety shows, but at first, I wasn't able to say a single thing. It took me a long time to get used to talking on broadcasts. And when I return home after filming for a variety show, and the members are all sleeping, I get very lonely. When I'm lying in bed and everything is quiet, I think of all kinds of things. I wish that I had a schedule the next morning too. I want to work every day."
Yezi, FIESTAR's fierce rapper and maknae, opened up about how different it is to be a solo rapper versus being a member of FIESTAR. She said, "The quality of being a solo rapper and being a member of FIESTAR is different. For FIESTAR, I have to be more feminine and sensitive, but they're both me. It's just that in FIESTAR, it somehow brings the feminine side of me up to the surface. For our recent album, it was difficult to suddenly write lyrics about love and breakups. I had to read or watch movies to experience those things before writing."
