How have you been? It seems a lot changed since you joined another agency.
That is right. Before, I didn’t do entertainment shows. These days, I am doing a lot of radio and magazine photo shoots. My album came out in April and I went to Hong Kong to meet my fans overseas. Now, I am preparing for the next album.
You were rather mysterious before, but now your image is more comfortable. Which one fits you better?
I prefer to be approachable, like a friend living next door. It was great that I could show all of myself on the entertainment shows without any disguise. ‘Unnies’ Slam Dunk 2’ was an entertainment show that I felt the most comfortable. If it were another show, I would have felt very awkward. All of the staff and members were nice and it was successful. I feel comfortable in the shows, but once I go up on stage, I become a charismatic woman again. That is not intentional, but I think it reflects my look and behaviors I had built up until now. I like both of images, one that is comfortable as in the entertainment shows and the other one with charisma on the stage.
The name of your dog is Dougie.
There is a dance from LA called the Dougie Dance and is like a dog dancing with enjoyment. I wanted my dog to be happy all the time so I name it Dougie.
