During her Naver Starcast interview on July 14, Hara talked about debuting solo, which is an especially noticeable act with all the top-notch girl groups making their comebacks this summer.
She said, "I felt burdened coming out as a solo [artist] in the girl group battle. Rather than hoping for a huge hit, I cast aside a lot of my ambitions as I prepared for my music." Seems she took her debut with a large grain of salt and decided to just do her best rather than anxiously hope to make a huge splash - and it paid off! She definitely earned herself more positive attention with her individualistic solo debut.
Hara introduced her goals for this album, stating, "It's okay if it doesn't do well, but I hope that my good image radiates a bit more prettily."
Good luck with your promotions this summer! What are your thoughts on her chances during all these music releases?
