Versatility is one of KWON EUN BI‘s artistic traits. Though having debuted as a soloist in August 2021, the singer is already known and experienced in the industry as she was one of the trainees of the survival reality Produce 48 and became the leader of IZ*ONE, one of the biggest names in k-pop over the past few years.
Right after the end of the group promotions, KWON EUN BI introduced to fans her own universe with Door – the single of the mini-album Open – to, as she said herself: “open a new side of me as a soloist artist“.
Now, the singer continues her journey with Color, her second release. A little after the comeback, she talked to KoreaIN about her newest single Glitch, her expectations for this new phase in her career, and her wishes to come to Brazil.
