Jessi talks about the personal meaning of b-side track 'Star' + wants to start acting

AKP STAFF

Solo artist Jessi appeared as a guest on the August 21 broadcast of KBS2's 'Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook', performing her hit song "NUNU NANA", b-side track "Star", and more.

On this day, Jessi confessed, "I want to let go of the image of the 'tough unnie' now. This time, I'm just a 'noona'."

She then also relayed her thanks to listeners for the success of "NUNU NANA", saying, "I'm so thankful. This is the first time my song has topped the charts. Usually, my songs would end up on the charts for a little bit and then just disappear. It's a different feeling when I'm recognized for the music. Even now, I'm nervous." 

She continued, "I'm so glad that people have accepted me. I want to work harder and live a more positive life. I didn't want to go on too many variety shows, but now more people are accepting me." 

Regarding her cameo appearance in the sitcom 'Somehow Family', Jessi said, "I do want to get into acting. I got greedy, since I'm a musician. There's no end to my greed or my dreams." She even shared that she personally asked to have more lines in her sitcom appearance, and her request was approved!

Finally, Jessi opened up about struggling through hardships and mistakes in the past, and how some of those mistakes made her a strong person today. She coined her b-side track "Star" as a special song to her personally, commenting, "It's the story of my life. It depicts my life from 15-years old to now. The fans really wanted to hear me perform this live, but when I try to sing this song I feel like bursting into tears. It's a song about positivity. I'm not a perfect person, but I'm not going to change who I am."

Jessi has done a great job, track for track, on the "Be Yourself" mini album. She deserves her flowers. I have been looking for a "skipless" album that I can play from the start to finish for a long time. Jessi stepped up to the challenge and delivered.

If Jessi wants to become an actor, Psy is going to need a lot of drugs and hookers to bribe PD's.
