One of 2021's biggest surprises is the triumphant return of legendary K-Pop group, Brave Girls, with their brand new summer-themed EP release, Summer Queen. "Chi Mat Ba Ram," the group's chosen title, contains all the best feelings of the season embodied into a catchy and addictive track that's taken K-Pop fans across the globe by storm.
For our allkpop Red Carpet Interview, we asked our very own allkpop readers what questions they'd like to personally ask the iconic group, Brave Girls, if given the chance. We then took your submissions and asked the members directly for a one-of-a-kind interview inspired by your questions! Keep reading to see if your question for Brave Girls has been answered below!
allkpop reader: What was your reaction when you found out "Rollin’" went viral?
Minyoung: Actually, we thought it would be just a short bubble in the beginning and enjoyed that moment. But the number of views and comments were skyrocketing, and all our friends contacted us and realized that it was real. It was unbelievable, and we felt like we were dreaming and cried together.
allkpop reader: What country/countries would you like to visit if you are going to be on a world tour?
Eunji: Too many! The US, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan... there are too many. If possible, we would like to meet all the FEARLESS fans in all the countries.
allkpop reader: Were there any changes or anything that became different when the group got much more popular?
Yoojung: Recently, we realized that there are many new fans we never met while we were doing facetime fan signing.
Yuna: We were able to get into the programs that we really wanted to be on, and plus, there are many fans watching our Instagram live now. Haha.
allkpop reader: Is there any entertainment work (e.g., acting, modeling, a judge on a singing show?) you would like to try out in the future?
Eunji: I would like to be a fashion designer since I am interested in beauty and fashion.
Yuna: Since I love drawing, I would like to help design the album later on.
allkpop reader: What do you do to relax when you get stressed or overwhelmed?
Yoojung: I try not to think of anything about the things that make me nervous.
Minyoung: I try to relax by listening to calm music.
allkpop reader: What was the bravest thing/moment you've ever had to do so far? And do you have any advice for us on how to be brave ourselves?
Minyoung: Our bravest moment is that we stood there without giving up when we were having a hard time as idols. I believe that taking a stance is the start of being brave. It is half of the success once you start to take a stance for whatever you have in your mind. Fighting!! ^^
allkpop reader: What's the message behind Chi Mat Ba Ram?
Yuna: "I am with you and the night is shining , Now I am Fearless, I have nothing to be scared of" In these lyrics, our fanclub Fearless are in it. Literally, it has a message that we are not scared of anything if we are with Fearless.
allkpop reader: Do you have any songs from previous albums that you’re very proud of and would recommend to newer fans!
Eunji: I recommend the song "We Ride." After "Rollin'" became viral, this song gained attention from fans, and I want this song to be more popular with many fans. The lyrics are good and a perfect fit for a summer night, and I would like to highly recommend it to Fearless.
allkpop reader: If you could collaborate with any other girl group, who would you choose?
Eunji: Hyori Lee. We loved her so much from a while back. It would definitely be an honor if we can collaborate with her.
allkpop reader: Do you have any messages to send to international fearless?
Yoojung: Hi, Fearless fans! I know we haven't had a chance to meet all of you yet; we believe that those days are coming soon when the corona situation gets better. Please keep supporting and cheering us on~.
allkpop reader: After COVID-19 restrictions ease, would you consider a world tour? I would love you to visit Europe!
Eunji: Europe!!! I'd love it so much. When the corona situation gets better, and the opportunity arises, we will definitely visit Europe.
allkpop reader: What concepts would you like to try in the future which you haven't attempted yet?
Yuna: I want to try a Christmas Carol. A carol of a cozy and warm concept of winter.
allkpop reader: Of all the advertisements you have done recently, which was the most fun to film?
Eunji: We became the ambassador of the Life Share Association recently, and I say it was significant and memorable. It made us think that we joined the good work of sharing of life, and it's really meaningful to us, and it was a good memory to us.
allkpop reader: Who are your biggest role models in the Kpop industry?
Eunji: Hyori Lee!
allkpop reader: How does it feel to have a busy schedule? Do you miss any of your hobbies?
Yuna: We used to work out a lot before "Rollin'" became viral. Nowadays, we go to our schedule right after we wake up, so we miss working out time since we spend most of our free time sleeping.
allkpop reader: What advice or message would you give to your younger/past selves, and what plans/goals do you have for the future?
Minyoung: If I can talk to myself of past me, "you've been very precious and beautiful and doing good. Please don't lose the self-confidence, and everything will be fine if you keep doing it like this." My future goal is "Let's all (of us) keep going like we've been doing.
allkpop reader: What will be the first thing you’ll buy to reward yourself for this amazing comeback?
Yoojung: It's not really a big reward, but we did a cool nail art because we came back as "Summer Queen", hehe.
Thank you to all of our FEARLESS fans for asking questions and supporting us! We enjoyed the Q&A very much, please stay safe and we hope to see you all again soon!
