Hyunah is stronger this time

Posted: 12 Oct 2012 08:15 AM PDT


On the 17th, Hyunah will make her solo comeback and is expected to command attention with a stronger concept.

The singer who showed a cute and sweet image last year with 'Bubble Pop' will reveal a sexier charm this time. Although the details have yet to be fully revealed, the concept and tone are said to be more powerful.

An official representative of Cube Entertainment stated, "We are working hard to show you a more mature side compared to past promotions. You will be able to see that the general feeling will be a little bit stronger."

The music industry has been in a nervous state as it awaited Hyunah's specific comeback schedule. As Hyunah's provocative comebacks frequently become hot issues, this comeback is expected to become a hot topic of discussion once again. Also, the hot overseas reaction towards her appearance in Psy's 'Gangnam Style', which is reaching 500 million views, can easily be seen.

After the Hyunah's new title track was revealed to be called 'Ice Cream', there have already been heated debates over whether Hyunah's new concept would be as suggestive as her past solos. Her ability to raise controversy is no joke.

The title track of Hyunah's second mini album, 'Melting', is Hyunah's first collaboration with renowned composer Brave Brothers. Cube Entertainment's representatives explained, "The point of 'Ice Cream' is to show a sweet and sexy image by comparing hearts with ice cream, and depict the magical moment when ice cream, or our heart, melts."
