"ah... Kumusta. This is Kyri and I am currently in Palawan for a photoshoot. "
Kyri greeted the camera with a smile, introducing herself. she bowed her head slightly and waited for the interviewer to begin asking questions.
-This is your first time in Palawan,right? How do you like it?
"Palawan is just a beautiful place. It's unlike anywhere I've been so far. It's a shame that I can't stay longer."
-So, does that mean you'd want to comeback? ...Maybe for a vacation?
"I'd /love/ to. In fact I'd love to go anywhere for a vacation at this point. But Palawan is defiantly high on the list."
-We'd love to see you back. Maybe I can, give you a tour next time?
"Haha, That's sounds like fun. I'll be sure to call when I'm back."
- This is your first time modeling for a swim wear brand individually...
" It is~ I think it's the first time I've modeled individually, period, excluding the few CF jobs that I have had. And it just happens to be for Swimwear. I've dieted and worked out so much for the past few weeks.... more than I ever had in my life. It was difficult, but I think the pictures are turning out nicely."
- You also released a solo album and you're releasing a single before SunShine Starlight begins Japanese promotions. Care tell us about that?
" Not that long ago I released my first solo mini album and the title track was ' Shanghai Romance', a song that I help composing from B1A4's Jinyoung. The album also includes two other tracks, 'Play that Music DJ' and ' What Do You Know' , which was given to me by G-Dragon sunbae. It's an album that I worked on for a long time that I tried to show as many different side of me as possible. And for my follow-up promotions I'm releasing 'Lead Me', which is a nice song, with a summer-like feel."
-Would you care singing a bit for us?
'/Baby come and lead me
Oneul bam dan duri nal deryeoga jwoyo
Baby pick me ah ah
Neomani complete me sarang seureon my honey
Dangsinmani nal, nal honnael su itjyo/'
- Ah, that was amazing. ... 'Lead Me' expresses the feeling of just wanting to be around your boyfriend. And recently you admitted to being in a relationship with B.A.P's Yongguk, are these lyrics perhaps about him?
" Ah, you caught me~ ...Haha. No, actually this song is one that I recorded even before I thought about making a solo debut. So at the time the lyrics were not about anyone really. Though now that I'm in a relationship with yongguk, I guess you could say I do think about him when I do sing it."
- You two seem to make a great couple, and are very playful with each other and you're especially truthfull with your fans. Was it hard deciding to publiclly announce your relationship?
"Truthfully it wasn't a difficult desicision. We both wanted to be true to our fans and we didn't 'officially' start dating until I tweeted the pictures. It took so long to finally start dating because my company has a dating ban."
-Wait, so, Are you saying you broke that rule? I know a few of the other members of SS have broken it.
" Ani! I actually had it lifted. And even after that the president still wasn't sure about my relationship with Yongguk, even after Se7en sunbae talked to him, so I had to introduce Yongguk, when I haven't even introduced him to my own father yet. "
- Ah, sounds troublesome~
" It might sound like it, but it wasn't that bad. Especially since I can date freely and openly, now."
- I'm sure. Well, It seems like we are running out of time for the interview.
"Already? ...Ah, Okay. Then... Please continue to to support me and SunShine Starlight and don't forget to buy one of these very cute swimsuits. This has been Kyri. ^^ Annyeong~!"
sometimes I feel as though I make too many sets/ stories for SS. @.@ Especially when it's been like days and my set is still the first one on the recently added bit of the group.
