Jiyoon is back, this time, with a new name.
The former 4Minute member made her solo debut, releasing the music video for “I Do (내가 해)” today (2nd November). She has also taken on the stage name Jenyer for the purpose of her solo promotions.
The song “I Do” is included in her maxi album “Day AND Night (낮 AND 밤)”, which also consists of another track, “Magnet (자석)”, a mellow dance track featuring rapper Olltti. “I Do” is described as a song that “will help warm the cold winter”, and holds a very significant meaning to the singer as it’s the first time she gets to showcase her singing skills.
The Korean word for “I Do” also means the sun, and the title is chosen for the dual meaning. Jenyer wants be the light and hope for others, but at the same time, she realises that she has to sacrifice her happiness in order for others to be happy.
The music video is also a touching affair, just like the lyrics. It is stripped down and shows the singer singing at various locations, including a beach, a cliff, a grassy field, and more. Her raw emotions can be seen throughout the video, and we witness her coming to terms with her struggles at the end.
Jiyoon debuted with 4Minute in 2009, and is also a part of 2Yoon, a sub-unit with ex-member Gayoon. However, in June, the Cube Entertainment group disbanded and each member went their own way.
