4Minute might have disbanded, but that doesn’t stop the speculations about their relationship.
In an interview with South Korean media outlet Ten Asia, former 4Minute member Jiyoon, who will be making her solo debut soon, spilled details on the relationship between the members of her former group.
She first revealed that the former group mates still do keep in contact, and was her source of energy when she was preparing for her upcoming album. She said, “The members helped me a lot in preparing my album. Whenever I expressed concern, they gave me practical advice. They knew what I need to do when I ran into trouble since we’ve promoted together in the past.”
Jiyoon also surprisingly revealed that the relationship between the ex-members improved after their disbandment. She continued, “We went through a tough time together. Our relationship became stronger. We had to tightly come together, and we also became closer while sharing our pain.”
The singer also addressed the discord rumours between all the members of the group. She expressed that it was frustrating to constantly see news about it, but being unable to respond or give fans a reassurance. “It was upsetting. We wanted to tell everything, but people just assumed things, and that was upsetting. We wanted to say that our members are doing well, but rather than speaking, I think it’ll be better for us to show through music or promotions,” explained Jiyoon.
This is not the first time that Jiyoon has talked about 4Minute, as she expressed her thankfulness to the group in an interview last Wednesday (26th October).
Jiyoon’s 1st single album, “Day & Night”, will be released on 2nd November. The music video for her title track, “I Am The Sun”, will also be made public on the same day.
