(G)I-DLE Soyeon on “Knowing Bros”, “We got a minus in balance after investing twice as much as the suggested budget in ‘TOMBOY’”

(G)I-DLE Soyeon talked about the production process of “TOMBOY” on “Knowing Bros”.

All members of (G)I-DLE appeared as transfer students on JTBC’s entertainment program “Knowing Bros”, which aired on October 29th.

On the broadcast, (G)I-DLE released a behind-the-scenes story about the song “TOMBOY”, which caused a syndrome in the K-pop industry. Leader Soyeon said, “We made a comeback after such a long time. The company spent the most money on it. It was the maximum amount of money they could invest in our group”.

Yuqi honestly shared, “We often make money from the comeback activities but ‘TOMBOY’ cost too much so we actually got a minus”. She added, “While planning for ‘TOMBOY’, the company first proposed a fixed budget but I thought it wouldn’t work because it was our comeback after a very long time. It was like a restart, we decided to spend double the suggested amount after numerous discussions and coordination with the company”, revealing the secret.

Min Kyung-hoon then asked, “The group got a minus in income, but isn’t it Soyeon’s song?”, mentioning the copyright fee. Soyeon responded, “That’s right. That’s why I was fine”. The members booed at Soyeon’s answer.

When Kang Ho-dong asked if she felt proud of herself when “TOMBOY” became a mega-hit song, Soyeon said, “Yes. When our album did not perform well, I got discouraged and rarely went to work. But after ‘TOMBOY’ was released, I straightened my back and went to the company quite often”.

Soyeon also talked about (G)I-DLE’s new song. She said, “At first, our comeback song ‘Nxde’ was strongly opposed because of its title. They said it was too raw and too suggestive. However, as soon as I heard that, I thought we should release this song”. Miyeon added, “That’s Soyeon’s personality. If you tell her not to do something, she will want to do it even more”. Soyeon continued, “When I thought of ‘nude’ for the first time, I didn’t think it was something obscene. In my opinion, it’s a word that expresses our true selves because we were all born nude. That’s the reason why I really wanted to introduce the song”. She added, “I tried to persuade our company by making a PPT to prove that ‘nude’ is not an erotic word”. Soyeon’s planning skills and efforts amazed everyone.
