A Pink on being 'organic idols', their innocent image, and future goals


In a girl group era where sexy concepts reign supreme, these seven ladies of A Pink bravely debuted with the "blooming of flower buds and the fresh breeze of spring." Their style has definitely caught the attention of many, especially those that noticed a style reminiscent of first generation girl groups like S.E.S. and Fin.K.L. back in the 90s. A Pink aimed to do just that, as they revealed that their goal is to recreate the 'elf-like' images of the original girl groups. Chorong stated, "Ever since I was little, I dreamt of becoming a singer by watching seniors like S.E.S and Fin.K.L. I followed their dance moves and copied their clothing style. Now that we're being called the same 'elf' title, it all just feels like a dream." It's only been a week since their debut but they're already receiving a positive response from K-pop fans that are tired of the same overused sexy concept that girl groups seem to opt for these days. Jung Eun Ji commented, "I still can't believe that we've actually become singers. It was really cool to see fans come to support us on our debut. I even found out that there was a support chant for us!" The name 'A Pink' itself sparked a lot of discussions (especially amongst international fans) when they first came out. The girls revealed that 'A' was an expression of their desire to be the best, and that 'Pink', the representative color of innocence, was added since it was their favorite color. Their debut was just as clean as their name. The girls' title track, "I Don't Know", features innocent lyrics about a girl's shy love confession, and the choreography for it doesn't feature anything stimulating aside from sweet dance moves that maximize their cuteness. Yoo Kyung stated, "Our fans call us 'Organic Idols', which we all laughed at when we first heard it. Girl groups these days sing a lot of hook songs and powerful tracks, so our clean and innocent song must have appealed to them. We're actually a lot more tomboy in style than we look (laughter)." They're just now taking the first steps of what will hopefully be a long and fruitful career, but their dream is crystal clear. They're determined to bring back the popularity of the original elf girl image, and just like how S.E.S. still remains in the memories of music fans, A Pink hopes to achieve the same effect. They concluded, "Just like there are various shades of pink, we want to become an elf girl group that has the potential for infinite change. Our goal? Our goal is to win #1 on music programs and even take home the rookie award for ourselves (laughter)."
