The contestant of “K-Pop Star 6”, Shannon, recently poured her heart in a recent interview with International bnt. The singer reveals her true feelings about her current agency, saying she would’ve chosen YG Entertainment instead if she had won the “K-Pop Star 6”.
Even though Shannon is actually doing quite well with her music career, she’s the type of person who aspires to be the greatest. She said it herself as cited by Allkpop that she initially prepared to debut as the main vocalist in a girl group but she decided to go solo instead because she was greedy, as she lovingly put it.
When asked about how she did on “K-Pop Star 6”, Shannon admitted that it was hard for her to compete in the show because of what might people think of her. However, she decided to go on with her life and just didn’t care about the ranking, she just wanted everyone to recognize her talents.
Shannon stated that if she had won the contest, she would prefer to sign in YG Entertainment. Producer Yang Hyun Suk of YG is the one who made her strive to be a part of the agency. Besides, YG music style tends to suit her just well.
Shannon, who according to Soompi will make a comeback this year, decided to become a singer simply because she loves music. Fame is just a bonus she will receive if she works hard enough to be a great singer. No matter how much love she put into music, Shannon sometimes couldn’t help but feel insecure about herself because of her perfectionism.
Shannon’s comeback album reportedly will be released in the second half of the year. It’s not impossible for her to promote as an actress as well in the near future since acting is in one of her lists. Despite her flawed Korean, Shannon said that she would like to learn and practice more of it in order to be a better singer and actress.
