“We used to go for really cute concepts like in our song ’Shy Boy’ but as time passes we feel that we’re too mature for songs like that any longer. If there’s one concept that we’ll not want to do again, it would be something like that,” Korean girl group SECRET’s leader Hyosung mused.

The quartet was in town for the second time this year, barely five months after their first solo fan meeting in Singapore, to celebrate Wisma Atria’s anniversary with a special event, Style: Meets SECRET on Nov 7.

Speaking to the media in a closed door interview at the W Singapore Sentosa Cove hours before their public event, the members confessed that while it’s been over a year since their last mini album Secret Summer was released in August 2014, there are no concrete plans for a comeback just yet.

“We’re definitely thinking about having a comeback but we have yet to decide on the songs or concept so there isn’t any definite timeframe,” they shared.

Their dedicated fans, SECRET TIME might feel disappointed by the news, but fret not - there’s one thing that will definitely be on the next album.

“We created the song ‘FOR SECRET TIME’ and performed it at our sixth anniversary event earlier this year but we haven’t released a studio version yet. We’ll definitely include this in our next album (…) it’s a very special song both for us and our fans,” Ji Eun explained.

While fans will have to wait a little longer for a SECRET comeback, their label mates B.A.P are all revved up for theirs on November 15.

“I’ve listened to the songs on their upcoming album - they’re really good and are totally their style,” Hana gushed of their hoobaes (juniors in the company).

“We have a really different music colour from B.A.P and SONAMOO so we can’t really give them advice when it comes to their songs; but we do watch their stages and give them feedback afterwards on how they can improve in the future,” the group added.

After wrapping up the interview with big smiles all around, the four then bustled off to trade their autumn-inspired outfits for a slightly vampier look for the evening’s festivities - something the male-dominated crowd definitely approved of.

Bringing the house down with four of their hit songs, ‘I’m In Love’, ‘Shy Boy’, ‘Starlight Moonlight’ and ‘Love Is Move’, SECRET was also presented with a specially commissioned cake to commemorate their anniversary. Meeting some of their lucky fans backstage for a meet-and-greet session, the smiles on everyone’s faces showed just how much the fans loved the members and the members, their SECRET TIME.

Hana confessed, "I'm not as tall as the other members but I embrace it instead of hiding it. Personally, I feel that if I have a complex, I'd want to conquer it by showing it more instead."

The leader mused, "I'm in charge of pride in the group; I'm usually the one who has to be a little thick-skinned when it comes to speaking to the media and matters such as presenting our new albums."

Ji Eun shared that she's had her share of fashion disasters with her example, "When we look at SNS we see foreign models in street fashion and think to ourselves that it looks really good but because we're not as tall as they are we look kind of strange when we try the same outfit on. It was weirder than what we expected."

Picked by Hyosung as one of the most stylish members of the group, Sunhwa chuckled, "Challenging new styles is a good thing but if it's one that is difficult to pull off, it's better to think twice before attempting it."

Their slightly edgier look showed the group's versatility in switching up their style.

We lost count of how many cameras and phones we saw raised up in the air while the girls were on stage - talk about dedication!
