Sakura, Kim Chaewon, Kazuha, and Eunchae from the group LE SSERAFIM were on Sunmi’s Show! Interview to talk about how their group got started.
They took turns discussing how they were inspired to become vocalists and the obstacles they faced prior to their debut.
Two members of the group, Sakura and Kim Chaewon, came from very different backgrounds until they met on the show Produce 48.
This is how they ended up in the K-Pop girl group IZ*ONE, which has 12 members. The team existed until April 2021, when their contracts expired and the group was disbanded.
Sakura and Kim Chaewon talked about how they felt after leaving IZ*ONE in a rare moment when they could talk about their past lives as members of IZ*ONE.
“I felt like something was missing“, Sakura said. “I had always been part of some groups, but all of a sudden I was on my own… I felt so lonely.”
After getting stronger, Sakura went back to South Korea with the goal of making her debut with a group she wouldn’t leave.
Sunmi then asked her how she felt when she found out that Kim Chaewon would be in LE SSERAFIM with her.
Sakura said with a voice full of emotion, “To be honest, I didn’t think I’d ever see her again. I was so excited to make my debut with her again…so happy.”
Kim Chaewon shared Sakura‘s feelings: “As IZ*ONE disbanded, I said a final farewell to Sakura, but seeing her again…it was unreal, and I felt so secure,” she explained.
Sakura and Kim Chaewon must have been meant to work together again in LE SSERAFIM, since their group has done so well. All of the people in IZ*ONE have a strong bond with each other because they help each other in any way they can.
