(G)I-DLE’s Soyeon Spills On Why She Didn’t Add Her Own Verse To “MY BAG”

Her reason why is too real πŸ˜‚

(G)I-DLE were recently guests on Jonathan Thona‘s TheKstarNextDoor, where they covered a variety of topics, including their latest “Nxde” comeback,Β idol friendships, their group dynamic, and the making of a fan-favorite song, “My Bag.”

(G)I-DLE’s B-side track “MY BAG,” released on their I NEVER DIE album, which also featured their popular title track “TOMBOY,” was immediately a hit.

The catchy song quickly went viral, and so did their dance which was frequently covered by fans on social media.

The song was written by (G)I-DLE’s leader Soyeon, who wrote a verse for each member, crafting the lyrics to suit them individually.

Notably missing in the song is a verse for Soyeon herself, who only performs the chorus throughout the song.

Naturally, this made some fans, and Jonathan Thona, curious about why Soyeon didn’t add an extra verse for herself, hyping herself up the way she wrote confident lyrics for her fellow members.

Jonathan asked Soyeon, whose answer was too real. She shared that if she added a verse, it would be too long.

Jonathan clarified if she meant that once she started talking about herself in the song, she wouldn’t be able to stop, to which Soyeon confirmed that’s what she meant.

Yuqi then hilariously said the members only had eight bars for themselves while Soyeon “defended” herself by saying that writing eight-bar verses is the hardest for her.

Like a true leader, Soyeon worked hard to write and co-produce the song with lyrics that made the members proud.Β 

Soyeon’s realistic answer shows her true, confident personality, which is evident in the group’s songs and makes them a strong and lovable idol group!
