Made up of HyunA, PENTAGON’s Hui and E’Dawn, Triple H was initially dubbed the “2nd Trouble Maker” by insiders. This irked fans, which caused Cube to refute the claims and explain that the 2 units hold vastly different concepts. They still hold a common similarity though – both units courted controversy for their music videos. While Trouble Maker was deemed “too sexy”, Triple H had fans up in arms due to their reckless content.
Many have also questioned HyunA’s decision to promote with a new group instead of an existing one, which has already amassed a strong fanbase. While appearing as guests on one of MBC’s radio show, HyunA addressed the issue and also talked about the dynamics of the group, showing fans that the 3 members are indeed going strong despite the backlash.
On promoting with Triple H instead of Trouble Maker, Hyuna clarified that the decision was jointly made by herself and the company. “I recently celebrated my 10th debut anniversary and my company suggested that I try something new. I liked the idea and that’s why I chose to make a comeback through Triple H,” explained the former 4Minute member.
The members also talk about their close relationship with each other, with Hui chiming in, “At first, I was afraid of HyunA, but now I feel comfortable around her because we are close.”
“Before we became friends, he couldn’t even look at me for more than 1 or 2 seconds. But now, he makes eye contact with me when we are talking and I like that,” continued Hyuna.
The group was also aware of negative comments by netizens and Hyuna even tried her best to protect her younger members from seeing them.
“I was afraid that if they checked the comments and saw something negative, they would not be able to show everything they have to offer. Our song is really fun and I didn’t want anything to bring them down before performing,” exclaimed the rapper.
Being a senior to Hui and E’Dawn, HyunA also said that she wanted them to feel like she was the team’s “house”. She said, “I wanted to be a place the two of them could rest with, but in the end I’m just someone who stays home all day.”
The unit made their debut on 1st May (Monday) with “365 FRESH”. They’ve already proven their popularity by amassing around 3 million views on their YouTube music video in such a short time.
