Kim Ye Rim, who became well known as the member of duo Two Months through the “Superstar K3” and who has just recently released a single as a solo artist, revealed her thoughts about the absence of Do Dae Yoon.
She said, ” The decision for [Do] Dae Yoon to go back to the States was made suddenly. He had to graduate high school. I′m sorry about that because we had been working together. Still, we got to work together on the track ‘Number 1’ and Dae Yoon did all the male parts for my promotional single ‘All Right.‘ Then I started working alone, and everything changed. The music I could do as Two Months and the music I could do alone turned out to be very different. I wanted to show something only I could do.”
Kim Ye Rim has also admitted that she had grown so much while working on the album, “It was awesome. I came to Korea after I decided on an agency the year after I appeared on ‘Superstar K3‘ in 2011. Two, three years just went by so fast. When I look back, it makes me wonder. I also thought I should work harder after receiving songs from and getting to work with great artists. I need to work hard, not just think it was all luck. I learned a lot.”
The singer has stopped herself from going overboard with the individuality and she decided to concentrate on showing who Kim Ye Rim is in her natural self, “I hope it just turns out to be me. Rather than dress myself up, I want to deliver the message contained in the lyrics with my own natural voice. It is true I′ve been maturing, but I just wanted to show who I am within the limits of my own abilities. (Laugh) I tried not to be what I′m not because I wanted to show how I change.”
Kim Ye Rim has released her first solo album “A Voice” with many prominent musicians, such as Mystic 89′s head CEO Yoon Jong Shin, Jo Jung Chi, Ha Rim, Lee Sang Soon, Peppertones′ Shin Jae Pyung and The Black Skirts′ Jo Hyoo Il, who participated in the album.
