Hyorin admits being a solo artist is much harder than when she was with SISTAR

During an appearance on the MBC program 'Section TV Entertainment News,' Hyorin opened up about her years promoting with her former girl group SISTAR.

"When I earned money with the other SISTAR members, my profits were much larger than what I make now that I'm earning alone,"
she confessed, admitting that sometimes the cons of being a solo artist outweigh the pros."It seems like nothing can replace the times we spent together or fill the void of not having the other members around."


"Every time I am going through a difficult time or feeling lonely, the other members are the first thing I think about," she added, describing the other members as friends with the ability to read her emotions without her having to say much.


Hyorin continued by mentioning that the members still meet often, stating that the last time they met up was at Bora's birthday party in December.

"It seems that we are able to sync up our schedules and meet even if we're busy,"
she commented.

Well, maybe if she stops trying to copy the american-garbage music and dances; and returns to sing high note ballads and funny and sexy (Not sluty) K-Pop summer songs she will earn a lot more money.

This is the cold truth. I feel like she tries too hard to be all sexy slutty and lose out in her greatest asset which is her strong vocals

Her vocals are still just as strong. In fact her songs are even harder now.

Listen to To Do List and See Sea, it has all the runs, high belts and sustained notes you need.

Even in Dally she has a difficult run during the bridge.

Her vocals have not been compromised. We can hear more of her lower register in her recent music and it really suits her

Her voice is not missing because of the sexiness. Dally is a sexy song and the MV was super hot but she still brought killer vocals, how many other girl group singers could copy it? The problem is that narrow-minded people are ignoring her great voice because they're triggered by sexiness.

american garbage and dance, right i guess thats why they dominate the music industry in the world and every singer tries or wishes they can have the chance to enter the US market.

Most foreign acts that succeed in the US market do so by being different, not by emulating American music. American audiences are brutal - they don't want to listen to some foreign chick with a bad accent try to sing and dance like Rihanna or Beyonce, no matter how well she does it.

it even worse when she is the CEO, she mentioned she feels a sense of responsibility to her staff as an album failure will not just mean less money to her as a CEO, but she might end up not being able to pay her staff if its not doing well.

she also have to save, and use the money she saved to "invest in herself" by asking for foreign dancers and artistes to teach her. and learn from them and pay them.

Isn’t she the one who wanted to go solo in the first place. I’m guessing she thought her body was hot enough to open doors all around the world but it’s a lot tougher than she thought.

She's just saying it's harder and lonelier than being in a group and she's making less money, she's not saying she regrets going solo entirely. She did it because she wanted to release her own music and have more control over her image and starship wasn't letting her do those things.

I think she did but not at the cost of separating? It was such a long time ago, but I remember reading about how they agreed that if even just one member wanted something different, they'd "disband". But if I remember correctly that person was Bora?

I think that HYOLYN (Hyorin ; whatever) did the CORRECT decision to leave SISTAR Group. And TRY to get a successful SOLO situation working for her. I think that HYOLYN actually HAS the SOLO level VOCAL skill that is needed, and reasonable VISUAL too. So, for HYOLYN to HWAIT and keep SISTAR Group going for say two more years ; I think that would be a mistake. HYOLYN wants to get something going along the lines of what AILEE (SOLO K-pop) has working for her. And as a SOLO Act, HYOLYN gets to somewhat (more) choose her SONGS and CONCEPTS for the MVs that she releases them. AND, HYOLYN does NOT have to 'SHARE MONEY' in any way with OTHER Group Members. But also, it is NOT easy to get say SUNMI (Wonder Girls) level SOLO success to happen either.

Theres only so much T-n-A baring can get u. Ailee will always win any sex image idol... cause she captures her audience with her great personality and vocals. Ailee isnt a sell out. Hell she even stuffs pastry in her mouth during a music show proudly. Gotta love her lol.

NOT clear to me that HYOLYN is a "sell out" either. And HYOLYN has a quality VOCAL skill. I have no problem with your preference for AILEE. But, in the end, only your preference ... ;)

While I really really love her solo releases (See Sea is probably my favourite song from 2018), I think if money is an issue, she should pump out some OSTs and ballads. Hyorin's strong point is her voice. People think she has one of the best voices in Korea and while she's a great dancer, I don't think her dancing is enough to carry her career. I hope she'll mix it up a little so she can stay afloat, but also do what she loves creatively.

Sistar should have not disbanded they could have been bigger and more popular by now. The group would have enjoy more income today.
