Chungha Says Her Friendship With I.O.I Members Helps Her Cope With Stress

Chungha held a “lying down” or LieV broadcast through Naver’s V Live on February 11 and talked about how she copes with stress.

During the broadcast, Chungha opened up about some of her concerns. She revealed, “It’s really difficult to have a peaceful mind. Every time something big happens, it’s hard to stay composed.”

She continued, “I started this because I like dancing, but because we were ranked on ‘Produce 101,’ I began to dwell on the numbers and sometimes dancing became stressful. It was difficult during those times.”

Chungha revealed that her way of de-stressing is to spend time with a close friend. She explained, “I think just being with that kind of friend is healing enough. In that sense, I.O.I members are really good friends. I can tell what they want by just looking at their eyes.”

She said that when she has an hour or two between schedules, she monitors her performances or talks on the phone. She revealed, “[Yoo] Yeonjung contacts me a lot. Right before I started this LieV, Yeonjung video-called me, but I couldn’t answer because of a schedule.” The singer added, “I’ll call you right after the LieV!”

Chungha then moved onto the topic of travel. When asked to choose one friend to go to the Czech Republic with, she chose gugudan’s Kim Sejeong. “I think it will be really fun,” said Chungha.

The singer also spoke about her most memorable trip and said, “Going to New York with my mom was the most memorable. I lived in the U.S., but didn’t live in New York, so I didn’t know about New York any more than tourists. That trip to New York with my mom stands out in my memory.”

Chungha has been active while promoting her most recent title track “Roller Coaster.”

Chungha Reveals I.O.I Members’ Reactions To “Roller Coaster”

Solo artist Chungha recently gave an interview where she talked about her first comeback, I.O.I members, and goals for this year.

Starting with her debut song “Why Don’t You Know” to her most recent release “Roller Coaster,” Chungha has been proving her popularity in the music industry. Chungha was asked if she expected her long-run popularity, to which she replied, “I did not expect it. A lot of people liked my debut song, so I wondered a lot if I could do better than that, and worked even harder to prepare for promotions. I’m really thankful that people liked ‘Roller Coaster’ as well.”

Chungha continued on to share her thoughts behind her first comeback since debut. She said, “I did have many concerns, but I didn’t feel very burdened. I actually felt less burdened than during my debut. I did think, ‘It would be nice if it was received more favorably than my debut track, but I was more excited than last time, and realized I wanted to come back quickly.”

Chungha also revealed how her fellow I.O.I members reacted to “Roller Coaster.” She commented, “They are congratulating me so much. They monitored in real time a lot, and since I don’t use the computer, they saved pretty gifs of me and sent them to me. They even sent me the realtime rankings of my song. I let them listen to ‘Roller Coaster’ first before release, and the members said, ‘See, I told you you would do well.’”

Finally, Chungha touched on her goals for this year, concluding with, “I want to show the many sides I have yet to show through my performances or albums. I’m holding my first fan meeting in Korea this week, and I am really excited and looking forward to it. If the opportunity comes, I would like to prepare a better performance and hold a fan meeting later in the year.”

Chungha made her first comeback since debut with “Roller Coaster” on January 17, and topped realtime charts after release.
