Girls' Generation's Yuri: it's the right time for my solo debut

 

Girls' Generation member Kwon Yuri has released her first solo album, The First Scene, 11 years after her debut.

She shared her thoughts on this milestone at a showcase to promote her new record in Seoul on October 4, saying that although releasing solo work is something she has dreamed about ever since she was a trainee, she felt that it was finally the right time for her to debut as a solo artiste. "Before, I was busy with acting and other interests, so doing all of it at once would have been difficult for my schedule," she explained.

Yuri then shared that, to match her "black pearl" image in Girls' Generation, she tried to bring "sexiness, femininity and beauty" in her new album.

She also gushed about her fellow members' reactions to her solo effort. "They showed me a lot of support in our group chat. When they saw the teaser images, they told me I looked pretty," she said. "But even when they don't say anything directly to me, I still feel like they are showing a lot of curiosity, interest and trust in me."

Moving forward, Yuri expressed her wish to be able to release another album, as well as to hold a solo concert and collaborate with other singers that she likes.
