[Interview] 4Minute Says it Gave Up on Men with New ‘Bad Girl’ Concept
The 4Minute members shared their determination regarding the ‘bad girl’ concept in the new album.
During the interview with enews on February 6, 4Minute’s Heo Ga Yoon said, “We decided to go back to the intense image we had in the beginning of our debut with the new title song Crazy. In order to show the stronger and more intense sides of us, we decided to give up on looking pretty. We looked at each other’s makeup and said, ‘Let’s give up on men,’” and laughed.
4Minute returned after a year by releasing new mini album Crazy on February 9. Having presented pretty concepts with the songs What’s Your Name and Whatcha Doin’ Today for the past two years, they will be returning to their intense image through Crazy. The teaser image previously caught attention by featuring the members with the ‘bad girl’ image and relatively less skin exposure.
Nam Ji Hyun said, “4Minute is a group that has relatively more female fans. Instead of exposing our skin to appeal, we wanted the female fans to think, ‘I want to be like them,’ or ‘They are cool.’”
Hyuna said, “It would be a lie to say that we didn’t feel pressured at all. But if we’re going to do it, we wanted to do it right, so we can hear them say, ‘They must really be crazy.’ It’s true we don’t look as pretty on screen but I wasn’t upset about that. I felt proud thinking 4Minute has another facial expression now.”
Nam Ji Hyun then added, “I hope you don’t misunderstand us. And this doesn’t’ mean that we completely gave up on the male fans. I included a sexy portion in my part. I will try to grab back the male fans’ who are trying to leave.”
