On April 14th, reporters of KBS 2TV's Entertainment Relay visited the set of Ivy's comeback music video filming and sat down for a heartfelt interview discussing her return.
Ivy began, I went through a lot of pain during my break... I finally feel like I'm living life now that I'm out. Since I was on hiatus for so long, I missed the stage a lot and wanted people to hear my songs. My hiatus just felt so long."
She continued, "I watched all of the music programs every week. Since I had nothing else to do, I would just watch TV all day. Once I turned it off, I felt so pathetic as I sat there on the sofa. I would think to myself, "I should be on that screen...". The industry these days is largely focused on idol singers, so it was disappointing to see that there weren't many solo artists promoting."
For the past two years and six months, Ivy has gone through several obstacles like her lawsuit with her company. When asked how she dealt with the rumors that surrounded her, she replied calmly, "I think it's something that any celebrity has to go through at some point in their career."
Tearing up at the thought of her family having to undergo the same pain, she continued, "My father learned how to work the internet and read the hateful replies about me. I didn't know what to do then. The pain my family received was greater than my own. It's because of my family that I'm able to make my comeback, as they were my biggest source of strength."
