HYBE‘s much-anticipated girl group LE SSERAFIM held their FEARLESS album release showcase.
The ladies of LE SSERAFIM Kim Chaewon, Sakura, Huh Yunjin, Kim Garam, Kazuha, and Hong Eunchae revealed a glimpse of their official debut on May 2 at Jangchung Municipal Stadium in Jung-gu, Seoul.
As high as expectations were for the group, journalists did not spare any questions, asking the ladies their thoughts and ambitions for their upcoming debut.
When asked why she returned to K-Pop, Sakura, who is making her third debut with a K-Pop group and returning from a stint promoting in Japan, stated her ambitions for herself and the group.
Even after my past group promotions were done, I wanted to continue, and I wanted to perform as an artist on a global stage. At the time, I spoke with Source Music regarding the group they were building, and our goals aligned.
The idol did concede that she felt pressure making her third debut.
Because it is my third debut, I do feel pressure. I want to be even better. People need the pressure to evolve, and I will do my best to do so moving forward.
Kim Chaewon also revealed her thoughts when she joined the group. The idol stated, “Because I knew it would be a new challenge, I was relieved to find out Sakura would be joining.” When asked about her thoughts on her new leadership role, the Kim Chaewon stated,
At first, I didn’t think we needed a leader; however, the label wanted one for communication between the label and the group. The members make it easy for me, and I have no issues being the leader. I feel a greater sense of responsibility, and I believe this will be an invaluable experience, so I am thankful to the group.
Sakura and Kim Chaewon thrilled K-Pop fans worldwide when they announced they would be joining the group this past March.
