Hearing this, MC Jo was surprised as she thought Chungha was just the same age as the idols she mentioned.

Chungha then confirmed that they are all her juniors. Jo assumed that she debuted in middle school, but the idol, who was embarrassed, denied it.

“No, no, no. That’s Somi! I debuted in my 20s. Early 20s. I wasn’t a teenager.”

Hyun Ah then asked the idol about her relationship with her former group I.O.I after their disbandment. Chungha then attested to fans that even after the members parted ways, they still maintain their closeness.

In fact, she even met with Joo Kyulkyung, who actively promotes in China.

“I’m still close with the I.O.I members. We got together and had a Christmas party last year, too. I also met with Joo Kyulkyung recently (in Korea). Since she has been active in China for a while when I.O.I gets together, we always do video calls with her.”

Chungha continued:

“Last year, we got together really often. For a while, we couldn’t do it since were were all busy but for me, I had time to rest while moving agency so I had some free time and more chance to meet them.”

Chungha was first known in the music industry after joining Mnet’s “Produce 101” and debuting in the project girl group I.O.I in 2016.

After they disbanded in 2017, Chungha decided to pursue her solo career as a singer instead of re-debuting in a girl group and made her name popular with her hits like “Gotta Go,” “Roller Coaster,” “Snapping,” and more.

In March 2023, Chungha then decided to part ways with MHN Entertainment, her agency of seven years. She revealed that she considered retiring early and starting anew abroad, but Chungha realized her love for her art and music through MORE VISION, a label led by Jay Park.

Under the company, she was able to bring her past team and staff from MHN.

On March 11, 2024, she made her return with “Eenie Meenie.” Check it out below!
