“I was going to sing everything by myself. It was going to be fine, but then we thought it would be more fun to have a male voice. It would make the song sound more complete, so we thought, ‘Who could fit the role?’ And we agreed with Chan from Stray Kids,” she commented on that.
She then immediately expressed her gratitude for her JYP colleague’s performance with the following phrase: “I’m so glad she joined. She really poured her heart into him [the project], and that’s why it came out wonderfully.”
Finally, she took the opportunity to send an affectionate greeting to her collaborator: “You are the best! Thank you, Chan!” She pointed out.
