She had a photoshoot with '@star1', where she said, "I trained for 7 years. It's a long time. I don't know how I spent that time. It was hard, but I was happy and grateful that I could dance. I was happy every day and didn't think it was really hard."
She added, "I'm scared about debuting solo. I don't even imagine I'll get the amount of attention or interest as IOI did." When asked about her small label, she said, "I fit well with small labels. If I was worried about that, I wouldn't have gone to 'Produce 101' as 'M&H's Kim Chung Ha'."
