Red Velvet‘s Joy spent the month of June promoting her solo debut “Hello”.
Now in July she finally has chance to catch her breath before working on Red Velvet’s reported August comeback. During this rest, she sat down with Singles Korea to catch her fans up as to how she’s doing as part of their These Days interview series.
Here are 6 things we learned from her interview:
1. In one word… Joy!
When asked to sum herself up in a word, Joy could really only really reply one way; Joy!
She explained that “I want to live up to the meaning of my name” before summing up the question quite well. “Joy these days, is joy.”
2. What motivates Joy?
When asked what gives her positive motivation, Joy replied in a way that was wise beyond her years. She explained that “motivations can’t be positive every time.”
She then continued by saying that while motivation can tire her out, she tries to turn it around by changing her perspective.
She ended the question by saying that, overall, her job is what gives her motivation.
3. Haetnim the happy dog
After being asked what makes her smile, Joy took a long pause before revealing her answer.
“It’s my dog, Haetnim. I can’t stop smiling looking at her,” was Joy’s eventual response.
Based on the pictures Joy uploads to her Instagram of Haetnim, we can’t stop smiling either!
4. Joy likes pictures of Joy too
The interviewer next asked “what pictures do you have on your phone?” to which Joy didn’t hesitate to respond that there were “… a lot of pictures of me.”
Joy does share phone’s her photo album, however, with her beloved dog Haetnim. “There’s many pictures of Haetnim that I received from my family,” she said.
5. Listening to music, old school
Joy’s recent debut mini-album, “Hello” was full of covers of rock and R&B songs from the lates 1990’s and early 2000’s and it seems that Joy is doing more than just performing those songs.
When asked what she does for fun, Joy shared that she had been “listening to many 90’s R&B songs.”
6. SM stands for “So Maybe I forgot to subscribe?”
The last question Joy was asked was “What is the last YouTube channel you subscribed?” This is when Joy shared her biggest surprise of the interview.
“I found that I wasn’t subscribing the YouTube channel of SM Town,” Joy shared, “So I subscribed it recently.”
Joy ended the interview by sharing her worries that she’s becoming a boring person but this interview proved just how interesting Joy is. Make sure to send Joy lots of love and let us know what you found most interesting from this interview. Check it out below!
