LE SSERAFIM‘s Sakura not too long ago sat down for an interview with Weverse Magazine. Prior to debuting with “FEARLESS” alongside Chaewon, Yunjin, Garam, Eunchae, and Kazuha, she was a member of HKT48, AKB48, and IZ*ONE.
In reality, information about her signing with HYBE and Source Music was solely revealed eight months in the past. Both she and Chaewon needed to rapidly adapt to their new labelmates whereas getting ready for his or her debut. As a consequence, it wasn’t unusual that LE SSERAFIM didn’t mesh effectively collectively immediately.
It took a very long time for us to sync up after we practiced ‘FEARLESS’ because it was our first time collectively, I assume.
Thankfully, they have been in a position to get used to one another rapidly. Once they began studying the choreography for his or her B-Side observe, “Blue Flame,” they have been already shut.
But after engaged on lining up our performances for that tune a lot, ‘Blue Flame’ didn’t take lengthy to apply, and all the main points fell into place, regardless that we hardly had any coaching for it. And all of us mentioned, ‘We’re actually turning into a group now!’
Each member took apply time severely. Sakura, specifically, made certain each transfer was in place by taking the group’s video and correcting errors little by little.
I’ve this large iPad that we take movies with on daily basis and we play it again and break it down slowly—severely, second by second—and we work on something we discover the place we aren’t matching up, so now my iPad is totally stuffed with—there are simply so many movies.
They have been in a position to change into nearer after solely lower than a yr collectively as a bunch. This was mirrored of their synchronized performances of each “Fearless” and “Blue Flame.”
Sometimes we watch outdated movies collectively and say, ‘We got a lot better.’ I’m virtually at all times within the apply studio after I’m not sleeping, and that makes me really feel prefer it’s all worthwhile.
In Sakura’s personal phrases, she was “really proud” of the group for overcoming the limitations earlier than them.
