(G)I-DLE Soyeon Explains Her Music-Making Process
When (G)I-DLE shared its track, Nxde, Soyeon notably said “I'd rather be hated for who I am, than be loved for who I'm not.” She shared similar sentiments during her most recent interview with Korea JoongAng Daily’s affiliate, The JoongAng Ilbo.
The interviewer asked her about her constant daring lyrics for the group’s songs and whether she ever felt worried about the public’s response.
“There are exact expressions that express my thoughts and there are times when those expressions can't be replaced,” she said. “I’d end up being unable to express my exact thoughts if the lyrics were altered or censored. That’s why I use them to accurately express my situation. I focus on the messages I wish to deliver.”
Soyeon is famous for writing lyrics about confidence and high self-esteem. With that, (G)I-DLE’s strength is being highlighted even more.
For the group’s leader, she reportedly does not purposely write lyrics with such vibes. Instead, she writes her songs with her feelings and words, saying having good lyrics and melody is “pure luck.”
