In an interview with 'Showbiz Korea' on November 30, soloist Ivy, who is also very active in musicals, was asked if she ever had any dreams about being in a girl group.


Ivy said with bluntness and practicality, "Firstly, when I earn money, I can keep that all to myself, can't I?  These days, girl groups have too many members, like nine or ten.  Don't they have to share [the whole profit]?  I should work hard and keep it all.  Am I being too honest?" making the interview laugh.  Well, it does make sense!

She continued, "I think that if there are a lot of members, there are probably people you get along with and people you don't get along with.  I also think that among women, there'd be envy and jealousy... My personality doesn't allow me to do well in those kinds of fights.  I heard a lot of rumors.  I even hear there's war for the center position in girl groups."

    #Facts however when it comes to solo artists it's a huger risk to be solo. You have to be lucky as shit to become famous and also you have to stay within the good graces of the general public. I feel like many go into girl groupdom then solodom because its safer.

    I think it's not only about the money. Many singers are in girlgroups (the same for boygroups), because it's easier for them to get a breakthrough in showbiz. Inparticular in south korea, there are so many talented artists and it isn't easy to shine out of the crowd. But it's possible, when you are in a group. If the group is successful, you'll have a name in showbiz. Ivy already has a name, she's a veteran singer. In my opinion, it's one more reason for her not to go in a girlgroup.

    About the profit issue. You just have to make sure you are popular on your own and do lots of activity and earn more money. However with the jealousy, center position and all sorts of problem even though no group will admit any of this it has to be true.
