Your oppars and unnirs are afraid of tall women, Nine Muses wants idol friends too!

These days girl groups are honest rather than being innocent but this group is unstoppable. We recently got to meet up with Nine Muses (Sera, Lee Sam, Hyuna, Euaerin, Eunji, Son Sunga, Kyungri, Hyemi, Minha) who have fresh personalities just like their long figure.

After their debut in 2010, they recently added member Son Sung A to form 9 members for their upcoming comeback with digital single ‘DOLLS’ which will be released on the 24th of January.

“A comeback in 9 months might be seen as a long period but during that time, the members have done self-improvement and hence didn’t feel such a long preparation break. As we are coming back as 9 members, we are preparing ourselves just like how we had our debut.” (Hyemi)

“We used to be very worried about our previous comebacks, but I think this comeback will be more enjoyable. And since we are back as 9 members, we feel more comfortable. We laugh together a lot and think positive if we are having a hard time.” (Hyuna, Minha)

Nine Muses’ new song will be vivid and contain funky sounds unlike their previous releases such as ‘Figaro’, ‘News’, ‘Ticket’ which were presented with addictive melodies and full of charisma. If they had previously presented us with electronic music, this time they will present us with a more feminine and lyrical song.

Nine Muses has revealed that they will perform one song in two different units which have different stage concepts and expressions. It will be divided up into a Sexy Dark (Kyungri, Son Sunga, Hyuna, Eunji) and Bright White (Sera, Minha, Lee Sam, Euaerin, Hyemi).

“The members had acknowledged this concept because it was unique. We will even show couple dances in our choreography. We used to show dark images but it’s a good opportunity to show a new appearance with the White Unit friends. It’s good how we will be able to show a stronger side of our Dark image.” (Hyuna, Eunji)

After holding a conversation with Nine Muses, we have forgotten the image of ‘girl groups being chic and arrogant’. Nine Muses is very easy-going and honest. Nine Muses has let out their difficulties for being mistaken on their personalities due to their stage concepts.

The staff who work with us wished that we should star in a reality program. They said ‘They have a strong image on stage but are down to earth off stage’. I think we are able to show many things due to our strong image. It’s good how we will be able to show a sudden change in charm as time goes by.” (Eunji)

“We are funnier than what we look like in the outside. The regrettable fact is that we wish to have idol friends but they don’t approach us. Many people would step away from us since the members are always together and are quite loud. We will approach them first when our promotions happen.” (Kyungri, Lee Sam)

With the average age of 25, and an average height of 172cm, Nine Muses earned the nickname ‘Model Idol’ since debut. Nine Muses became known through this nickname but in the other hand, they were also mistaken as a visual group rather than being skilled.

“The netizens misunderstood us for our age. There are a few idol maknaes who are older than us but since we are tall in height, many people misunderstood us for an older age. I think there was also prejudice about our aura.” (Eunji, Hyuna)

“We also think that we lack in skill. Since we are a group, we have small parts, so we didn’t have a proper stage to show off our voices. We wish to come on shows such as ‘Immortal Song’ to show that we have certain members.” (Son Sunga, Minha)

There is one unique factor about Nine Muses. They do not have a leader. It’s unique to see a girl group out of the many who don’t have a leader.

“I think it’s a good thing that we don’t have a leader. If there is a leader, all of the pressure will go on that person. I don’t think there is a need to pick a leader when each member does their job. Instead of saying that there is no leader, we’d rather describe us as 9 leaders within the group.”(Minha, Lee Sam)

Nine Muses, who will come back with an unique dark & white concept has set up their goals and plans for this year.

“We have been taking a break last year and I think many fans have been sad waiting for us. I hope to spend lots of time to make up for the time they have waited for us. We will not rest this year and work as hard as we can to make ourselves more known. Please be on the look out for a growing Nine Muses.”

Idk much about them but they were hilarious on dream team and I want them to have their own reality show.
momomoing 20th-Jan-2013 05:10 pm (UTC)
weren't they the group with the tell all documentary? what happened to that?
meterstandkaart 20th-Jan-2013 05:21 pm (UTC)
Saw it in Amsterdam, was an eye opener. Really recommended watch for anyone that's into k-pop. It was good promotion too, I'm really rooting for them after seeing all the stuff they get put through + the stupidity of their management.

meterstandkaart 20th-Jan-2013 07:06 pm (UTC)
Yeah it was! Drove from The Hague to see it, got a speeding ticket for it because I was late haha.
yesungholic 20th-Jan-2013 05:27 pm (UTC)
what's the name of the documentary? I've been looking everywhere online, but I can't find it.
dotdotdotting 20th-Jan-2013 05:56 pm (UTC)
a lot of people were mentioning it (the documentary) and now I'm really curious about how much they revealed about idol training o_o
yesungholic 20th-Jan-2013 05:26 pm (UTC)
I want I want I want!!!
reii_chan 20th-Jan-2013 05:57 pm (UTC)
I love their song and they are hard working girls, I can't wait for the comeback !
dotdotdotting 20th-Jan-2013 05:58 pm (UTC)
Kinda disappointed that they're doing it in two units rather than altogether, but it's a good thing they're trying something new.

i guess it's interesting that they're performing the song in two units but at some point it would be nice to see them all on stage together.

i am REALLY routing for this girls---i want them to be successful SO BADLY. with the exception of their debut song (which, lrb, JYP totally sabotaged them) they're been producing really great tracks with top notch performances.

cant wait for this comeback!
jeit91 20th-Jan-2013 07:01 pm (UTC)
but they are still promoting as 1 group, they just have 2 concepts. that's their shtick this comeback
swhyeon1991 20th-Jan-2013 07:38 pm (UTC)
Oh! Didn't know that they have no leader. And the 2nd pic is awk af.

"an average height of 5'5"......only in korea is this considered tall
xueyue 20th-Jan-2013 09:58 pm (UTC)
172cm is almost 5'8 though...?

Edited at 2013-01-20 09:58 pm (UTC)
fatjackinc 20th-Jan-2013 10:04 pm (UTC)
my bad the conversion thing said 5' 6 1/2" tho so
nemo_011 20th-Jan-2013 10:07 pm (UTC)
172cm is 5'7 and 3/4..
fatjackinc 20th-Jan-2013 10:09 pm (UTC)
the conversion table i used said 5 6.5 idk i suck at math i was just going by it
raviolikenshin 20th-Jan-2013 10:52 pm (UTC)
yeah don't trust online conversions, especially google...they often forget that you have to convert the decimal from feet into inches!

so while 173 is 5.6 FEET it is actually 5 feet and almost 8 inches because .6 feet is ~8 inches!

~maths~
fatjackinc 20th-Jan-2013 10:53 pm (UTC)
MATHS. SO. HARD. TY
jeit91 20th-Jan-2013 10:52 pm (UTC)
Get your conversions right before you comments please.
fatjackinc 20th-Jan-2013 10:53 pm (UTC)
geeze i will next time i got the beatdown cuz my maths is bad
goldynchickie 20th-Jan-2013 11:27 pm (UTC)
When I use online conversions, I round when I need to and then add 1 inch. For example, if it says 5'5.6, I round to 5'7 then add an inch to equal 5'8.
fallingfortruth 21st-Jan-2013 02:32 am (UTC)
If you're using the google converter, the cm to inches is very accurate, it's just the to feet that is super sketch. Just remember that 60 inches is 5' and 72 inches is 6' and you'll always be okay. :)
aleksu7 20th-Jan-2013 11:49 pm (UTC)
You go girls! Exited to hear the song

lightframes 21st-Jan-2013 03:04 am (UTC)
I love their average height. I would fit right in with them.

I always talk about Erin and Hyuna but I really like all of the members. I'm sure Sungah will be the same.
b1gay4 21st-Jan-2013 03:28 am (UTC)
i love this so much chhc ceuhiukdj
cairistiona 22nd-Jan-2013 08:51 pm (UTC)
When did Sera stop being the leader? She was their leader for some time, I thought?

They seem sweet though, I hope they'll make idol friends this year!
