Hyorin Talks About Why SISTAR Chose To Disband And Her New Single

Former SISTAR member Hyorin discussed her upcoming single and close friendship with her members.

On February 1, High Cut revealed images of Hyorin from her pictorial, which were taken in her personal studio. Hyorin set up her own agency following SISTAR’s disbandment last year.

In the accompanying interview, Hyorin revealed why she decided to set up her own agency, despite receiving offers from many well-known companies. Hyorin explained, “I can’t say that it’s because, ‘I had so many things I wanted to do, so I came out to do them all!’ I know that no matter what work you do, you can’t just do the things you want to do.”

She continued, “After debuting, I promoted for seven years, not for myself or anyone else, but for SISTAR’s sake. Because of that, I had a lot of concerns regarding life as Hyorin or Kim Hyo Jung [Hyorin’s birth name]. It wasn’t just me, but concerns that all the members had as well. We thought carefully, and then came to the decision that we worked hard for seven years, and we should remain good friends that support one another as we go on our individual paths.”

Hyorin will be releasing her first single since leaving Starship Entertainment on February 6. She shared about the track, “To me, the farewell that the song describes is not just about the one between men and women in love. I met up with Dasom a few days ago and showed her the song, saying, ‘You guys are included in the lyrics as well.’ She replied, ‘This is so moving?,’ and seemed to like it.”

The singer added, “I used to refrain from saying cringeworthy things to the members, but now that we are far apart, I’m slowly starting to. If the members say they’re going to do something, I get worried, and feel like I should go chase after them and support them.”

It's cute to see them hang out all the time and support each other <3

I feel like the members keep talking about the disbandment because people don't seem to believe that it was amicable. But if you look at their IGs they're always talking to each other and supporting each others' projects. Also I really want an HD version of that curious woman photo

I actually like Sistar’s friendship, because they don’t focus so much on fanservice! So it kinda feels more authentic?

Women supporting other women and being genuinely happy for their success yassssssss
title or description

On a selfish level, this bodes well for future collab projects and maybe a reunion concert one day(?)

It blows my mind that, despite doing the full disbandment song stages and best of stages and all of them constantly mentioning each other, people think Sistar had a bitter separation. Are they just ignoring everything or...?

I remain so moved and happy they did those goodbye stages tbh. I understand logistically why other groups couldn't but they really helped me get closure I didn't get from others.

I think people really want to push the narrative that Hyorin is a diva because she sang the most in SISTAR, but it's just not accurate. Also I think how she holds/represents herself probably intimidates people which is a shame

SiStar is the one disbandment that I genuinely think they just got tired of being idols and not of each other.

I was upset when they disbanded but it feels less sad knowing that they were ready to move on, that there were no hard feelings and they still were close to each other. it truly feels like they 'graduated' like kpop likes to use that term

I'm glad that Sistar's disbandment was a mutual decision and not just their company washing their hands of them like so many other disbanded girl groups. I fully support cat mom Hyorin (and the other Sistar members) in doing what they want!

I really hope she can start an agency were she can help provide a safe company for other idols to work under. The industry is so dirty.
