Bora [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia]
I was born on January 30, 1990. I'm the eldest in our group but I think I act quite coquettish. (Hyolyn: Bora's voice is always high pitched and cheerful and she's always happy. Dasom: She's actually the youngest of our group.)
I have a brother two years older than me who I'm very close with. (Hyolyn: They're like lovers. Haha) I've hung out with his friends since I was young and he has been very supportive of me even after my debut, always asking how I'm doing. He's made a lot of sacrifices for me so I need to become successful quickly to that I can repay him for everything.
I've loved to dance since I was young. And dancing aroused an interest in singing for me as well. I naturally gained the interest to become a singer so I majored in musicals at Myungji University.
My skin is on the dark side. I haven't gotten tanned on purpose -- this is my original skin color. I have a small wound on my leg and that part is slightly white. But when I was in school, someone told me I had a hole in my stockings. (laugh) (Soyu: We too sometimes think she is wearing coffee-colored stockings.) My brother is dark-skinned as well.
People have asked if I used to be an athlete but I'm not. I was briefly on the track and field sports team in fifth grade and ran a 200-meter race just once. But I just liked physical education so all I've done is be in charge of the sports team a couple times. (laugh) I recently ran 100 meters in 15.63 seconds but there are plenty of people who run faster than me.
If we ever get to hold a concert where we can perform solo, I'd like to put on a masculine and powerful performance. I'm still greedy about dancing well so I want to show a side to me that is completely different from "Push Push" or "Shady Girl."
Dasom [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia]
I was born on May 6, 1993. I have a brother four years older than I but my relationship with him is completely the opposite of that of Bora and her brother. Haha. He doesn't treat me well in particular but I guess you could say we're the typical brother and sister who hope for the other person to do well?
But my brother is very interested in my group members. He would say, "How come Hyolyn sings so well? Her voice rings out from all the way inside her!" or "What is Soyu doing right now?" And he used to say Bora is the prettiest but he now says Soyu is pretty while Hyolyn is cool. To his own sister all he says is "Practice more." (laugh)
I've been interested in becoming both a singer and actor since I was young.I went to Anyang Arts School because I was attracted to the job of an actor. I joined our agency the latest, after auditioning for it.
I have wanted to run away before while prepping for my debut. (laugh) Everything was great except for the fact that I had to dance 10 hours a day. And while my friends go to watch movies and eat delicious food, all I got to do on my birthday was eat two pieces of chicken breast, some seaweed soup and blow the candles for my cake! (Soyu: That's when we were on a strict diet so we only got to observe the cake. haha)
Hyolyn and Bora are types that don't get fat. (Hyolyn: Bora will stop eating when she gets full but I keep going no matter what. haha) When Soyu eats, her face becomes a little bloated but her body is still the same. As for me, I gain weight right on my body so it's very stressful.
I was very happy when I first heard my hair will be bleached. I was dancing about it because it was going to be the first time. (laugh) But after bleaching my hair six times over seven hours, my eyes hurt and nose stang. (Hyolyn: She came back to us crying.) My hair falls out as well when I brush it because it's gotten so ruined.
I respect and like BoA so much. I've liked her more than any other guy has from when she sang "No. 1." I ran into her on SBS' music show "Inkigayo" recently and when I said hello nervously, she said hi to me too. I almost cried then. (Soyu: She'll even stop doing her make-up when BoA is pre-recording and watch.)
