Group Miss A, who has been gaining popularity with their new mini album entitled "Touch" said, "We have presented powerful dance performances up to now, but you might be able to find the difference from our new album. We try to express our emotion even in our finger movements. Our performance will be like a work of drama (laugh)".
The best performer group Miss A (Jia, Min, Suzy, and Fei) came back with more mature appearances. Their new title song "Touch" that was released on February 20 already ranked atop the various music streaming chart. During a recent interview, the group member Min said, "We changed everything from our dance, costumes, to our makeup in order to present completely different images of a mature woman. We have actually presented rather strong performances up to now (laugh). Our previous songs usually have direct feelings both in the performance and the lyrics of the songs, but the new song "Touch" contains delicate emotions. It has a concept, 'Love that comes from broken heart', and the song itself seems to be very feminine".
"Touch" is written, composed, and produced by the producer Park Jin Young in JYP Entertainment. Jia said, "The producer said that "Touch" is a song that pursues a work of art. So we have focused on expressing the feelings of the female protagonist in the lyrics of the song in every element including singing, dance, costume, and makeup. We hope that people who watch our performance on the stage will feel like that they just finished watching a work of drama. So we try to express every detailed feeling and emotion even in our tiny little movements. We found it very difficult to express the pain from love because we are still young, but actually we have all become addicted to painful feelings eventually after practicing too many times (laugh)".
Miss A's new mini album includes dance songs such as "Lips", "Rock n Rule", "No Mercy", and "Over U" besides "Touch". The song "Lips" is a cheerful dance song, and it has been produced by popular American producer Fuego who had worked with star singers such as Chris Brown. "Rock and Rule" has the recent trend sound called "Dubstep". Jia said, "The other dance songs are very different from the title song. Our group members try to reflect our own thoughts on this album, so you might be able to listen to diverse songs from our album".
Miss A had advanced into the Chinese market last autumn before they released this new mini album. When they held an autograph event with their fans in Taiwan, almost 3,000 fans came to the event venue, which reportedly blocked all the transportation facilities near the event hall. Fei said, "We held the event in a music store that is connected to the subway station and we could feel the heated atmosphere right after we entered the place. We had expected around 500 fans would join the event, but we were very surprised to see that there were many more people coming to see us". The Chinese members Jia and Fei felt emotional when they went to China. Fei said, "We are always very busy asking things to Min and Suzy in Korea, but the position has switched in China (laugh). We felt very comfortable with the thinking 'Now we finally came to our boundary'". Jia said, "My parents looked incredibly happy. Whenever we appeared on Chinese TV, my parents called me and said that it was so amazing that their daughter has become a star who appears on TV. So I try to do my best while holding activities for my parents. I have come to go back to the basics and have the initial mindset that I had when I first debuted in Korea".
Asked about their plans for this year, Min answered, "We have had no plans for our overseas activities. We will first hold activities with "Touch" in Korea, and if we can have any chance, we might be able to have more activities in China". Suzy said, "If you watch our music video of "Touch", a rose blossoms when a new love finally comes. Like the rose in our music video, I hope that Miss A will be able to bloom in 2012. I want to make this year as 'Miss A's year'". All the group members agreed, "Our group name 'Miss A' has the meaning of 'Miss Asia', so we want to become the best girl group in Asia. We will continue to do our best until we can make our dreams come true".
