When asked about her interest in the pet industry, Shuhua responded with a laugh that she would run a pet business if she ever left the idol life.

As the conversation went on, the young star also touched upon the challenges of preparing for (G)I-DLE’s album releases, describing the process as “very tough.”

It’s very tough. There’s a schedule every day, and even after this shooting, there’s practice for the title track. The song [“Super Lady”] is as powerful, confident, and cool as its title suggests.

She detailed her packed schedule, which includes daily commitments and rigorous practice sessions for their title track. Despite the exhaustion, she expressed pride in their music and encouraged fans, affectionately known as NEVERLANDs, to continue supporting their work.

Please love and enjoy our music a lot. I hope you keep listening even after our activities end. Our members have worked so hard…

Shuhua’s words come at a very touching moment in her career, as she has been on hiatus since February 8. Cube Entertainment — the agency representing (G)I-DLE — announced that Shuhua would be pausing her activities due to dizziness, following medical advice for a period of rest.

This hiatus came amid the release of (G)I-DLE’s second full album 2 on January 29, which achieved remarkable first-week sales of 1.53 million copies. However, the celebrations were dampened as Shuhua — along with members Minnie and Yuqi — faced health issues, preventing their full participation in promotional activities.
