Backs Against The Wall: Soyeon Admits That ‘I NEVER DIE’ Was (G)I-DLE’s Last Chance!
At present, (G)I-DLE is promoting "TOMBOY," the title song of their recent comeback album "I NEVER DIE," and the K-pop group's comeback has reached a myriad of milestones, but behind the success lies a deeper meaning to how much "I NEVER DIE" means to (G)I-DLE.
Prior to (G)I-DLE's comeback, they ended up losing a member after Soojin parted ways due to school violence accusations. Notably, Soyeon revealed how much the loss impacted (G)I-DLE.
In a recent interview with W Korea Magazine, (G)I-DLE's Soyeon shared that her K-pop girl group had gone through a lot over the past year, talking about how their line-up decreased. Due to this, their latest album "I NEVER DIE" was their last chance.
"Last year, the group went through many changes. First, our team lineup changes from six members to five. During that time, I told the girl that this album was our last chance, so we had to do rise and do well. So I decided to title the album 'I NEVER DIE'," (G)I-DLE's Soyeon revealed.
Due to the confident title of "I NEVER DIE," (G)I-DLE saw it as their last chance to bounce back. When asked if Soyeon was confident with the album, the K-pop idol explained that she was and she believe she could say that the album is everything to her.
(G)I-DLE's "I NEVER DIE" has gone on to be immensely successful as in the first week of its release, it sold 176,914 copies, breaking the K-pop group's personal record. In a week, the MV for "TOMBOY" went beyond 44 million views.
Furthermore, (G)I-DLE's "TOMBOY" was able to reach a digital real-time all-kill, topping a plethora of South Korean music charts.
