A Pink members talk about hardships before their debut + perform 'No No No,' and 'Luv' on 'Sketchbook'

The lovely girls of A Pink guested on the November 28 airing of 'Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook,' where they performed an acoustic cover of their hit number, "No No No," and their recently released track, "Luv." The girls were seen matching in a fall appropriate outfit, wearing a light pink turtle neck paired with high-waisted black pants.

During a brief interview with MC Yoo Hee Yeol, Eunji revealed that the A Pink members had experienced some rough years prior to their debut. It's been four years since their debut, and despite their youthful image, the girls faced a lot of adversity during their debut years as the competition between girl groups was intense.

MC Yoo Hee Yeol asked, "As a girl group, where the competition is so fierce, did you guys face any crisis?" To which Eunji answered, "Rather than calling it a crisis, we faced one of our hardest times before our debut. Before we debuted, we were all suffering from depression because of the stress that came with debuting and thoughts such as, 'are we going to be successful?' We weren't really (talking much to one another), so our mission (at the time) was to at least say one thing a day.

Yoo Hee Yeol then confirmed that the girls were quiet and much more timid despite their friendly and outgoing image displayed on TV. And to help them come out of their shy bubble, Yoo Hee Yeol asked Chorong to perform an aegyo and call him 'oppa.' 

When Chorong failed to deliver her aegyo, Yoo Hee Yeol taught the girls, as well as the female audience members watching, how to master aegyo and win the hearts of their fans in order to regain A Pink's status as 'army-presidents.'

As their closing comment, Chorong revealed that they hope to become a long-running idol group, especially because of the short lifespan that idol groups have these days. She also stated that they hope to learn much more about music and possibly become female version of Shinhwa, who recently celebrated their 16th year anniversary since debut.
