Unicorn talks about making a comeback after losing a member

Unicorn, a group sporting a unique, girl-next-door concept, met up with 'International bnt' for an in-depth photoshoot.  

Unicorn debuted back in September of 2015 and has already welcomed their 1 year anniversary, with some changes. In the interview during the photo shoot, the group discussed what they'd been up to lately. 

The girls said that they no longer live together in a dorm because they don't have many schedules. One member stated, "Living together is different from just meeting up to practice, so we always tried to be considerate of one another and never fight. Back then, we weren't close to one another like we are now. Because we tried to avoid arguing, we grew distant. We talked less and hung out outside more. It is not uncomfortable to go outside because no one recognizes us on the streets. Only our friends know that we are idols." Rumi commented, "My friends don't care that I am an idol and they're just envious that I am thin," making everyone laugh. 

Regarding a member that left the group, one member said, "As we practiced with only 4 members, we felt the emptiness of Winnie. A member leaving a group is always something sparking curiosity and worry, no matter what the reason might be. Even though she did not leave because of any conflicts, whenever we were asked about it, we became discouraged. We talk about it and try to become stronger." 

Sohee shares lessons she learned from her past Wonder Girls days in 'InStyle'

Rising actress Sohee shared about her past Wonder Girls days in 'InStyle'.

For her upcoming movie 'Single Rider', the cast and crew traveled to Australia for filming, which made Sohee reminisce about her past days in New York for Wonder Girls promotions. On what she learned from those experiences, Sohee said, "I think I became a more flexible and confident person by experiencing different cultures and people. Back then, I wasn't able to fully enjoy the moment because I was so busy running toward my dream, and I do regret that somewhat."

Reflecting back on her Wonder Girls days, Sohee said, "I lived a different life than my peers because I debuted at such young age of 14. Now as a 25-year-old, I want to live a life that suits my age and create a lot of memories."

During the interivew, Baek Da Eun discussed her controversial role in an erotic film, 'A Pharisee.' She stated, "When I first got the script, I thought it was a philosophical and artistic film. It was a bit shocking, but because of that film, I received a new actor's award, so I feel grateful." 

She also explained other erotic films that she made since 'A Pharisee' by saying, "The places I signed with turned out to be non-registered production companies, and things I did not want happened there. Criminal cases are being argued in courts right now, and from now on, I will never sign without accurate paperwork."  

Good luck with the lawsuits!
