(EN/日) 소리의 혼자만의 인터뷰 [소리]

November 10, 2019

Sori’s YouTube Channel Dear viewers of “Sori Not Sorry: ”
Hello everyone, this is Sori. Sori here. I’m going to try out something different today, and I would like to talk about my solo artist career. Some of the viewers already know, I have been to London recently for latex outfits, hit the recording studio, and watched Shakira’s concert in Barcelona. Not to mention a bikini haul for the music video and behind the scene footages from the music video set. You might have come across these videos about my solo career, or some interview footages from my showcase. Maybe you have read some news articles about me. Since this solo debut means a lot to me, today, I would like to discuss it with you guys in more detail. I believe there are several of you who have known me even before CoCoSoRi days, but those who have not are the majority. Since I assume a lot of you have recently found out about me after the solo debut, I would like to introduce myself first. I was born in July 21st, 1990 in Seoul. Since I spent my childhood at my grandma’s in Gangwon Province, sometimes the province feels like my hometown, but I was born in Seoul. I am 28 years old International, 29 Korean. I personally think that age doesn’t bear particular significance, but people tend to grow physically and mentally as time passes, so even though it hasn’t been long, I believe that tons of changes have taken place in my lifetime. If I were to tell you my life story from the moment of my birth, a whole day wouldn’t be enough, so what about I start my story from the autumn last year? I debuted as the half of duo, “CoCoSoRi” in 2016. After the debut, I auditioned and trained for a Korean drama “The [email protected]” and was starred in as one of the characters in the show.
I spent total of 1 and a half years shooting for the show. While the show was being televised, I joined the group R.G.P and B-SIDE and appeared on TV. We started discussing the comeback of CoCoSoRi towards the end of the show’s run, which was the last fall. While Coco appeared in a couple episodes of the TV show, she opened up her own YouTube channel, and been showing her prowess as a web personality, and released her first solo single “Wishy Washy,” to become a solo artist first. While we were discussing the debut of “CoCoSoRi,” the casting calls for audition shows such as “The Unit” of KBS and JTBC’s “MIXNINE” have started. This was a good opportunity even for those who have debuted on stage. CoCoSoRi would eventually consider that option as well. I initially thought that returning back to trainee days was really tough, but to appear on audition-based show with this chance, would be a beneficial experience in a long run, I thought. So, Coco starred in KBS’s “The Unit,” and some of you might know already, Some co-stars of our drama “The [email protected]” appeared in “The Unit” as well. While the other members including myself appeared in “MIXNINE.” if you check out the 2nd episode of “MIX NINE” you’d be able to find a footage of an audition being held at my company, The judge’s comment saying “Isn’t it time for you (Sori) to retire” has gone viral, and after that I sang my original song “Song To Myself” in front of the crowd shedding some tears. I believe this experience has made me realize that I have to work harder, and became a source of motivation. As the show “MIX NINE” progressed, I spent time with many other girls, did assignments, and waited for good results patiently for a couple months, I didn’t have much time to think about anything else, back then, I did a performance of “Greedy” by Ariana Grande on stage. This is an afterthought that I came across way later, but after watching the performance, the president of my company started considering a solo artist career for me. I found about this way much later. I think I displayed an image or concept so different from the ones that I have already shown before. and maybe led him to that thought, I assume. By the time “MIX NINE” was coming to its end, we started working on CoCoSoRi’s new single, “Mi Amor.” Even though “Mi Amor” had a different vibe from the other songs that CoCoSoRi has performed before, but I think we did pretty well for ourselves, maintaining bright and upbeat atmosphere. After that, Coco was preparing some other song for her second single, but I don’t think she actually ended up choosing another song. Around the same time, A long discussion between me and my boss was coming to an end and started preparing for my solo artist career, and this channel that you’re currently watching has been launched. To prepare for my solo career, I started taking many lessons such as vocal training, and started working out as well. As a newly-minted solo artist, I had much room for improvement I looked up many footages online about solo female musicians and did a lot of research. I studied how to express myself through body language by watching music videos, and I went to see a live concert of Katy Perry, who I admired since high school days to up my motivation I visited 2 different producers to talk about my solo debut single, and started having meetings about outfit, music video, and choreography A lot of preparation is needed to become a solo artist. and I have prepared those elements through lots of research and discussions. To elaborate more in detail, I practiced a lot of my poses and facial expressions and as you can come across through my channel, I have taken lessons like bass guitar and piano. If I were to perform on a bigger stage, I would be able to play those instruments while performing my songs, I thought. So I worked hard for several months to get ready for my solo career. A solo artist has to sing, pose, and act on stage or in front of the camera, and display all of his/her talent to the crowd, right? And one’s visual appearance matters especially to solo artists. I ended up doing more research, discussions, and pondering to that extent. While there are many idol groups in Korea, solo artists who sing, act, and dance all by themselves are few and far between, I came to realize. To become a solo dance artist is very difficult in this soil, and to be well-known is more challenging. So before the decision was made, and kept my mouth shut until everything was certain. knowing that I might give up midway through. I wasn’t going to retire and stop singing just because the preparation phase was difficult. Since giving up after making the announcement would be poorer in form, my company also decided to keep things confidential before set dates were announced as well. Only a handful of people knew about the solo debut. Once we’ve made a certain amount of progress in my solo debut, an idea of using MAKESTAR as a crowdfunding platform was brought up. so that those who support me around the world can join in. To release a song in this industry, a solo artist must have outfits, choreography, a song, and a music video and multiple expenditures to appear in many TV programs. Even though to meet all the expenditures would be impossible through crowdfunding, that was the moment that I realized there a lots of people in this world who would like to support my endeavor. Approximately $7,000 was our target goal, but we ended up reaching over 300% by the time we have reached the end of the campaign. I was aware that my solo debut process would require many people’s sweat, committment and hard work, but at the same time, I wondered if there would be people out there to support me when I returned to stage. I actually thought that this campaign would fail. However, a lot of people would end up supporting me exceeding the target amount I am very grateful of the support, and to find out that the people from over 18 different countries have participated in this was a huge surprise and something to show my gratitude for. I bet some of those supporters I would not likely to physically come across and vice versa due to the distance. But to support me despite all that,
has touched me greatly. I thought I have to work harder to pay them back. Your supports were a huge source of my energy.
Thank you so much. So my solo debut date was set, My first single “Touch” was released and its accompanying music video was revealed as well. What came after was a showcase. That was my first showcase in such a long time, and it was actually my first doing all by myself. Upon pondering which outfit to wear for my performance, I ended up wearing the outfit that I wore for the group dance scene in the music video and the cover image shoot. which is the white latex outfit. I wore two different body suits,
one going inside of the other. I wore fishnet stockings over a pair of regular stockings as well. With the outfit on, I stood in front of you on stage. Many articles and photos were published. By simply just reading the article, you only get to experience one side of the story, even before listening to the song. The outfit definitely has gone viral. After a long consideration and discussion, I decided on putting the outfit to show myself as a solo artist for the first time, but to summarize all that by saying “Oh, she’s just wearing swimming suit with fishnet stockings!” I have come across quite a few people who share that opinion. Many people seem to have negative point of view towards not only me, but towards my company as well. I initially was thankful for the attention, despite its negative tendencies, and I was partially ready for this backlash. To have this much of public attention as a lesser known celebrity, I know some people would look at me strangely, or have critical and negative opinion towards me. However, since I’m a human being, and so are many co-workers at my company, to witness such negative comments have hurt us. It was hurtful, and to receive such reaction after all the hard work put in frustrated us. We have gone all the way to London to get these outfits for the music video. Even though I am not particularly famous, the outfits were worn by many famous people, so I wore them with pride. However, the returning reaction was very cold. I was very upset… It felt like what I worked on all these years collapsing. But after some thoughts, I wanted to show you a different side of me that has never been seen before, in both the music video and at the showcase. So, to fit the song, that was different from all the other releases I’ve done before, I prepared an appropriate choreography as well. However, since I am not particularly well-known to the crowd, I heard lots of blame from the public. If a current famous figure in the music industry were to put on a sexy outfit, and to dance on stage, People would be able to support him or her more easily, since they recognize the pre-established reputation. But Since I have not reached that level of popularity, I thought I might have received such a backlash. Among the comments were
“Is this company seriously stooping this low to make money?” “Is she seriously doing THIS to gain popularity?”
to list a few. Even though I might be that personality on stage, in real life I don’t dress like that. I have a separate personality that is disparate from the stage persona. Which I think is the reason why I could be a bolder personality on stage. The outfits and choreography were not decided by myself, but with a long discussions and meetings with the members of my company. A few people shared their negative opinions towards my company saying it’s too small, but because my company have so few workers, we were able to communicate and get to know each other better. So, this project was agreed on mutually. The music video, outfits, and choreography were agreed upon many considerations. Even though I have tried out a bunch of different concepts, but to debut as a solo artist with the same cute and innocent image, wouldn’t make me grow particularly, and since the viewers and surrounded by so many other talents, to just show my plain Jane self wouldn’t be good enough to gather attention. So this time around, with my solo debut, I wanted to show you a grown up and more experienced SoRi. I think that these articles and reactions were in part some degrees of attention to my outfits, showcase footage, and the music video. Since coming across the article isn’t the same from listening to the song, one would judge the book by its cover, But to become such an issue… “we’re half-way to success!” I decided to take it positively after talking to the president of the company. I assume there are some people who recently found out about me through these media outlets, To those people, I would like to show them what my everyday self is like, how each preparation was done. I can seize this opportunity and promote myself to those people. I have various feelings with this particular experience, I once again learned that I still have lots of room to improve, and what I can do to fix those issues as well. In order to stand in front of you more confidently, I still need more preparation. and more practice, I came to a realization. My solo debut single “Touch” is a really good song as well, I hope you enjoy listening to it,
and this is definitely not the end. I would like to come back with a better and more favorable song the next time around. I have garnered lots of inspiration after seeing Shakira’s “El Dorado” tour, Even as a woman, Shakira is very sexy, but at the same time, she is very innocent and pure whenever she shows her smile. Sexy, but bright and cheerful… Shakira is an artist that makes people happy. As I was watching her perform, I thought to myself it’d be nice to become a musician whose songs are sung along and bring joy to them. Across all genders and age groups, even some young kids were dancing to the song at the concert. I was so jealous but couldn’t help myself admiring such a scene. I would like to find the unique charm of my own, and would like to perform on a stage like that. Even though age could be important but I think it’s not as important as the dreams and work I would like to achieve in the future. As a human being, I also sometimes doubt myself, and get frustrated. I get upset and feel despair too. I am putting efforts of my own to overcome the challenge and become a better person every day. Thank you for listening to this ramble, and Thank you for your support in advance, as I transform and become a person that you’d be proud of. Through the recent incident, lots of new people get to know me, and might harbor negative opinions about me after finding out through some media platforms, I would like to work harder so that I could convert them too. I will work harder! I have been thanking my fans all the time, but today I would like to thank the president of my company, who has been through lots of ups and downs starting from my debut. Because of the recent backlash, he must be going through some tough time as well, I would like to thank him, and sail through this storm together! Let’s come up with something new! We can do this, boss! I would also like to thank the dedicated staff members at my company, producing duo Gamenrider for the wonderful song, Director Hong at Zany Bros and his staff members for the great music video, and Choi Hyojin of 1Million Dance Studio, who came up with the awesome choreography. I love you all! My gratitude also goes to always hard-working stylists, who comes up with my outfits. My thanks also goes to Atsuko Kudo, the designer for all the latex outfits that I wore. And stage dancer crew, who have been through lots with me. They have been very reliable, especially Eungyu. I would like to thank them as well. Nakamura san, who photographed my album cover,
thank you very much, sir! I will continue giving my best!
Fighting! Soon enought, the weather’s gonna get colder, and I hope you guys don’t catch a cold. This has been a long soliloquy about myself, but I bet you have gone through a lot as well. many hardships and struggles have come to your way, but I hope you don’t despair either. I hope you stand back up and keep going your own way! I will support your efforts, and I will go my own way as well! I would like to thank my fans who have been supporting me for a long time, I am still familiar Sori that you like, so I hope you send your love to me too! Thank you so much for who watches “Sori Not Sorry’s” videos, liking them, and communicating with me. I will show more cool stuff in the future. Stay tuned!
Thank you! Love you all!

    Your name should be sori not sorry for a reason! Don’t give one thought to those nasty comments. At the end of the day, the people who love you are the ones supporting you and your work so why should those netizens even matter? We will always love and support what you do sori. I really hope you don’t let the comments affect what you release in the future because Touch has a one of a kind concept in kpop and I’ve never been more proud of you for doing not only something revolutionary but something that I love. If you want to wear that body suit out in real life, do it! You shouldn’t care what people think especially since you’re causing no harm to anyone. I’m so happy I’ve been supporting you since I found and loved Exquisite! Everything about your solo was perfect and I wouldn’t have it any other way. ❤️

    I wonder if English comments are read and understood. You Tube should have a translation option like IG or any other social media. As solo artists go I myself like the simple style of Lim Kim best. Nothing distracts from the song and voice. Try to not mind the trolls too much. Don't let them make you think youth, beauty, ant talent are bad things.

    It takes a lot of guts to stand on any stage much less to post such a personal video. I supported Sori on her solo project not just because she caught my ears and eyes with the CocoSori debut, but because of her spirit and tenacity (on to mention grace) on Mix9. I have gained a lot of inspiration from Sori, inspiration that helps me to keep on fighting for my dreams, and I thank you for that. Sori Fighting!!!

    Sori I love you so much and I won’t stop supporting you. Just know that I’ll be along with you to see where your journey leads you and to see you succeed. The backlash from those people is more normal than most people think. People like to pick on people who are lesser known and especially those who come from smaller companies. Just as an example, some of the bigger artists we know today come from very small companies and were always put down and hated early on because they were lesser known. So don’t let these things discourage you. Your supporters will be here with you to enjoy the ride and love you and your music. ❤️❤️❤️

    Whether she was shady to Coco is irrelevant (even though Coco was acting pretty catty I still don't want to put either down without knowing the full story) the fact is Sori still did the hard work and deserves recognition for that. If her dream ends tomorrow then at least she won't regret not having put 100% into it. It's not an easy career to succeed in and it's inspiring to see her still reach for the stars with all the odds stacked against her.
    I used google translate for this so it's probably completely butchered but:

    Hi Sori!
    Thank you for sharing this video with us. I didn't know who 'Sori' was until I saw the Touch teaser video. From then on, I tried to find out as much as possible about you. I have seen the hardship you have gone through and started watching all your videos from the start. (Half way through, as I don't want to skip any of them.)
    Understandably you will get upset from negative comments and it's sad that it hurts you, but seeing you overcome the negative feedback is really inspiring. I've seen time and time again in your videos where you stayed positive in difficult situation and I really admire it and has inspired many of us.
    There's more I want to say but for now – SORI FIGHTING!

    Te amo Sori.
    Until then, I will keep listening to the Touch MV.

    PS. I'm a fan from 🇬🇧! I can't wait till your next release and will definitely support you.

Just know that we'll always love and support you as much as we can. Thank you for being you, Sori.

    You went into such detail, Sori! It was interesting to hear/read. I’ve known you, such as I can, since “Dark Circle”. It is a song I still love to hear when it comes up on my shuffle.
    Admittedly, when I saw “Touch” music video I was a bit shocked. “That’s SoRi?!” I thought. — But really. Should we be surprised? We know already you are no stranger to latex clothing!

    I have no idea if sori can read English, but I must say, she has an incredible personality on camera.

    Obviously she is gorgeous, but her mannerisms, the way she speaks, her attitude always being so upbeat, it all is very contagious. I feel like almost anyone who watches her interviews and listens to her speak would adore her, if she’d just get the chance.

    Of course, I don’t know anything that goes on behind the scenes, and I’m sure there are down times where she feels burdened, but when the camera is on her, she glows. In my opinion, she belongs on camera, and in the spotlight.

    I just want her to understand there will ALWAYS be detractors, and there will always be negative people trying to bring you down. You have to accept that, and be willing to push through, because there are also people who adore you, and they are the ones who matter.

    I recently came across the channel and videos, and I’m hooked. Keeping a presence on social media seems to be a huge positive in my opinion. I would love to continue to see more.

    I just wanted to offer my perspective.

    Keep working hard, and keep your head up.

Is SO COOL how much you worked for a great solo debut. Have a feeling you set a standard. But time will tell.

    hi Sori, i hope you are doing fine.
    to be honest i have listened to your song almost every single day since it came out, and replayed it so so many times, i love it, i love your voice, i love the beat and i love the rap. i hope we can get more great songs from you in the future! i loved the mv, outfits, the choreo and everything. when i saw your hair change on your instagram i was shocked, you looked so damn good in orange/red hair color. i love it.
    whenever somebody posted about you on instagram i felt so proud, i love people appreciating yOU.
    you deserve it. i expected better hype for your debut and i was deeply disappointed with people. when you mentioned the hate you got, believe me, you have love and support more than the hate, you should ignore the hate, people will always try to find something that they don't like even tho everything is perfect.
    i can already see you becoming so much more successful in the close future, i have always supported you and i will always gonna support you.
    thank you so much for always thinking about us, your fans too, you are so cute, you make my heart soft.
    i love you

    Sori please don't give up and let some negative comments affect you. I think the sexy concept suits you the best. You are a beautiful and charming young woman and I don't see anything wrong with wearing a sexy dress that shows the nice body you have worked for. Touch is a catchy song and I always find myself humming it. You have talent and I know it's hard since there are many talented people everywhere but sometimes even negative attention can bring good opportunities. You can't always please everyone in this world and you should know that there are lot of people who support and look up to you. I hope you will gain more and more popularity and become someone so great so that the haters will keep their mouth shut. Take care of yourself and stay strong.

    I sincerely believe that your video is not only "a sexy concept", but it's "the sexiest music video ever made". I also sincerely believe that your song and video are at the cutting-edge forefront of music in general, but most certainly it's hovering up near the current pinnacle of pop music! You should be extremely proud of what you've accomplished by the age of 28. Sadly, cutting-edge artists are very rarely appreciated (and even more rarely financially rewarded) while they're active. You're a wonderful, lovely, caring person who is twice as sexy as girls half your age. You should OWN it, all of it, all of you., rather than apologize for it. I think you're also suffering from a case of too-much-competition. I can hardly keep up with all of the amazing K-pop songs/videos that are coming out these days. This is an amazing time to be a music fan!!! However, it's a difficult time to be an artist! But, has there ever been a time when it wasn't difficult to be an artist?

    When I first saw her on her showcase, I was shocked by her outfit. I thought she was a minor being taken advantage of and also jealous of her pretty body! I will admit she made me a fan of hers by her stages. She shows confidence in herself not to mention her awesome song! Then I found out she was the same age and how humble she was… I'm a fan Sori! Keep up the great work! I will fully be supporting you! <3 <3 <3

    I know this comment is late but please just ignore all the negativity. They're just jealous and they honestly don't know what they're talking about. Remember, the greater you perform the more hate you receive. Success is always met with hate, but remember that it only means that you're becoming more famous. Let people hate and just do what makes you happy.
    I love your song so much and have played it on repeat for weeks on end. It's so good! The music video is also really great and the outfits are both cool and sexy. The sexy concept definitely suits you. I'm looking forward to future solo songs from you!

    Kpop double standards is a huge problem in Korea. Boy groups that are underage can somehow be half naked on stage & nobody complains??? i won't name the groups to avoid drama
    yet a grown woman cant express her sexy side cause it's not allowed? same thing happened to Yooa of oh my girl' on TV they censored her dance moves but a 17 year old boy was allowed
    to do his dance moves that were way more sexual but Yooa was 21 years old at the time of the show? but she wasn't allowed to do her move? …….Korea needs to grow up

    Sori is still young and pretty ! I think she still has a lot of time left in the entertainment world. Look at people like Lee Hyori who are still popular. I think being a performer in Korea can be difficult, there are a lot of people with inflexible attitudes and overly critical opinions. I think you can't listen to critics, just keep performing for your real fans. Even though Sori was trying her best in this talk to appear cheerful, it was obvious she was still upset by some of the negative comments. Poor Sori 🙁
