While Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun made her debut with “Don’t Say No” earlier today (Tuesday, 17th January), Dingo Music and 1theK released live versions of miss A’s Suzy (수지) pre-release track, “Pretend” (행복한 척).
According to Soompi, the emotional track topped all 8 digital music sales charts.

“Pretend” illustrates the loneliness and sadness of people who appear to be living happy lives but are actually sad inside. Last week, JYP Entertainment teased fans with a slew of teaser images which contain part of the song’s lyrics.
“I’m pretending to be happy again/ More, more pretending to be happy/ The eyes looking at me are full of fear/ The words talking about me are afraid/ I hate that person/ I hate myself more/ I have a secret that I cannot tell anyone/ Even though I’m smiling like this.”
Both videos show Suzy singing to “Pretend” live and while Dingo Music’s version was shot vertically, 1theK’s video sees Suzy singing with a mic, showing off her soft yet alluring vocals.
Her debut album, titled “Yes? No?”, is slated for release on 24th January.
