[TRANS] 200720 f(Luna) = Mag and Jina Magazine July Issue Interview

Recent activities

I’m currently preparing a new album. I’m busy working on the cover song and music video together, without stopping. Because I’m running a YouTube channel for fans, I’m planning diverse content.

Special parts of album preparations

Self-composed songs are going into the album. Even if it takes time, I’m preparing new concepts and genres that I haven’t tried before to stimulate the fans’ anticipation.

Artist you want to work with

If I must pick one person, it would be Park Saebyul, whose songs are comforting. Honestly, I’ve been a fan for a long time, and if I get to work with her, I think I’ll do my best to show off my music abilities.

What genre of music do you want to do?

I want to do ballads too, but more than that, I want to try a strong city pop-like new genre, with the vibe of 80’s pop music.

If you were to introduce your YouTube channel

The ‘Luna’s Alphabet’ channel has turned 4 years old. I’m communicating with the subscribers through various genres such as lifestyle, beauty tips and diet tips.

Channel’s name meaning

The channel name suggests that I’ll be showing lots of fresh and new genres and concepts, from A to Z, like the alphabet.

Nearby reactions

I was worried a lot when I first started. There was a lot I didn’t know, while switching from TV to YouTube. After properly starting YouTube, those around me gave me a lot of support that made me work hard.

The opportunity to start YouTube

I started it because I wanted to communicate with my fans. I didn’t have a lot of chances to communicate and I needed a channel to do that outside of performances. I started it as I wanted to show lifestyle and to empathize and communicate with fans.

The fans’ reaction

They were amazed that idols aren’t afraid to boldly show their bare faces and expose themselves. Now they’re rather positively accepting it and enjoying it.

The most popular content

On the subject of girl group diets, those about methods of losing weight like girl groups. They’re probably the most popular videos as I was the first person to come up with the words extreme season, peak season, non-peak season.

Memorable comment

I’m the type who reads every comment. I still remember the one that gave me the most strength. A fan said, “Luna-yah, you shine the most in the world and your music comforts me, you’ve become my biggest source of energy. Luna-yah, who brightens up my life, I hope you’ll sing for a long long time”. I can’t put it into words, but I was very thankful and it gave me lots of strength.

Trying unconventional concepts

After producing videos for 4 years, I’ve gained a lot of interest in filming and editing. I revealed a special music video through YouTube, a produced video that had never been done in Korea before. There are unconventional exposures that haven’t been tried in Korea and I’ve written my own lyrics and done styling.

Luna’s plans

I’m planning to work hard exercising and paying attention to my meals to achieve a perfect body. I want to constantly empathize and communicate with more people on YouTube too. I also want to try a sitcom. I acted for the first time at 20 but I’ve never tried a sitcom. And I also want to make a self-produced album with an artist I like, as a duet.

A word to fans

I’ll work hard to become a Luna who communicates lots with fans, who listens closely to their stories, through Luna’s Alphabet and, of course, various channels.
