In an interview with ‘GQ Korea’, Kim Chung Ha shared, “I think I’m lucky. At 19, I was a JYP trainee and college student, and at 20, I met my current agency and ‘Produce 101’.” As to what she thought about her career after JYPE, she said, “Rather than thinking, ‘I’m going to quit this industry,’ I just accepted my situation. The team I was a part of was disbanded and the management changed, and I wasn’t used to the change. Before I left, the members were seriously my last string of hope. I think I pulled at that string so much that I broke it. It took me a long time to realize it was broken.”

On her position as a dance member in IOI, Kim Chung Ha stated, “To be honest, I get scared a lot, and I need to learn a lot too. My fellow friends were very impressive choreography teachers.” She also said of her solo debut, “Though I’m worried I won’t get as much attention as I did with IOI, I want to show the potential I have.”
