T-ara’s Hyomin Talks About Meaning Behind Comeback Track “Mango” And Her Image
Hyomin recently talked about how she prepared for her upcoming digital single and the image she wanted to portray.
On September 12, Hyomin held a showcase at the Ilchi Art Hall for the release of her comeback solo track “Mango.”
During the showcase, Hyomin stated, “After 2014 and 2016, I’ve released my third solo album today. It’s been 2 years and 6 months. I had overseas activities, and I rested as well. While resting, I had a lot of free time, and recently, I prepared thoroughly for the album.”
Later, Hyomin talked about her music and revealed, “The new track’s title has the ambiguous meanings of a mango fruit and the phrase ‘Man, Go!’” She continued, “Please look forward to the phrases I used to compare myself to a mango, and the ways I tried to untangle the uncertain relationship between a man and woman in the chorus.”
Hyomin also shared her thoughts on the concept for her latest album, saying, “Rather than a choreography that highlights an overly feminine quality or sexiness on stage, I tried hard to put emphasis on a different image. I think there’s still a lot of that sexy image, though.”
She continued, “To be honest, ‘Mango’ is just a precursor to my next album that will be released in the future. I currently prepared around 5 to 6 songs.”
With this album, Hyomin plans to display her unique concept through “colors.” Her track “Mango” uses the color yellow as its theme.
Hyomin’s new digital single is set to be released on September 12 at 6 p.m. KST.
