ITZY’s Yeji and Ryujin will appear on “MIX & MAX” of M2’s STUDIO CHOOM.
Mnet’s digital studio M2 released a Spotlight video for ITZY’s Yeji and Ryujin, the second artists to appear on “MIX & MAX”, through the official Youtube channel of STUDIO CHOOM on June 8th.
In the video, Ryujin and Yeji introduced, “The performance we will present this time is Bebe Rexha’s ‘Break My Heart Myself’. We got inspired by a movie called ‘Terminal’ and composed our performance to tell that story”. The two, who have been working together for such a long time, expressed their trust and confidence in each other, saying “Maybe because this is a stage that two of us prepared together, I’m more confident than when I work alone”, and “I was more greedy for this project since we worked together. Let’s more of this awesome memory together and show better appearances of ourselves in the future”.
Several key points from Yeji and Ryujin’s twin choreography and detailed facial expressions can be checked in the pre-release performance.
“MIX & MAX” is STUDIO CHOOM’s new content, in which two K-pop artists become partners and present special performances. The performance video of Yeji and Ryujin, who boast perfect chemistry, will be unveiled on June 11th, and a documentary video showing the two’s behind-the-scenes practices and honest stories will be released on June 18th.
