SECRET attends game party for ‘Blade & Soul’ + reveals June comeback
To celebrate their partnership with NC Soft‘s new game, ‘Blade & Soul‘, the ladies of SECRET performed their hit songs and sat down for an interview where they discussed the production of their game characters and June comeback plans.
SECRET attended the gaming party with 300 other gamers to check out exclusive information on the upcoming release of the game. The game will include special characters modeled after SECRET.
Hyosung began, “It was such a fun and unique experience. On stage, our game characters danced on screen behind us so it was a lot of fun. Don’t our kitten characters look alike to us?”
The girls cosplayed in the oufits their characters are wearing and got on stage to perform their hit tracks like “Love is Move” and “Shy Boy“, drawing out cheers from the audience. Later, their characters joined them on stage as back dancers.
After completing their performances, the girls sat down to express, “We first heard that our outfits were made with the game in mind so we didn’t expect much, but they’re actually really unique and beautiful. We feel as if we’ve actually become game characters ourselves. It’s an honor to be able to participate and perform at such a large-scale gaming festival like this.”
SECRET’s kitten game characters earned a round of applause from the audience, especially in the detailed manner in which they were created. Not only did they know SECRET’s choreography, but also their facial expressions and gestures.
Jieun continued, “I learned a lot about this game through this opportunity. The characters are pretty and cute, and I’m always recommending everyone around me to try out the game. I’ll enjoy the game for myself on my free time.”
Hyosung added, “The characters are really alike to us in that they know all of the expressions and gestures we make while performing. You can really see the amount of detail put into them.”
As a nod to the Hallyu wave, this is the first time a game of this level has spent so much money on incorporating a specific girl group.
Hyosung, who actually participated in the outfit production, stated, “To girl groups, receiving compliments saying that we look like dolls or game characters are the best compliments we can receive.”
Concluding the interview, Hyosung expressed, “It was an honor to be invited to such an event. As game characters, we will be playing the game as well. These days, we’re all hard at work on our next album. See you in June!”
