KCRUSH Interview with UP10TION

K-pop boy group UP10TION made a return with their 10th mini-album ‘Novella’ and title track ‘Crazy About You.’ We thank the UP10TION members and their management Top Media for this interview about the latest release, as we wish them all the best in the new year of 2022! How have you all been? Let us know how you feel about the comeback and the release of the 10th mini album ‘Novella.’ KUHN: We’ve been writing lyrics and prepping for the new album. This comeback is of a new concept that we’ve never tried before, so it’s more nerve-wracking. I really hope HONEY10 are pleased with this new album. KOGYEOL: We’ve been busy rehearsing our choreography and shooting contents via YouTube. It’s a new concept for us, so we are anticipating this comeback a lot. BIT-TO: We’re back with a song with a different vibe, so the feeling is also so new to us, I am grateful that we can showcase it on stage for HONEY10. SUNYOUL: There’s always that craving to get on stage to perform, and time feels kind of meaningless when I don’t work, so this comeback is very exciting and happy for me. GYUJIN: We are so happy and proud to be able to showcase a new performance to HONEY10 in a long while! It was sad that we aren’t able to perform to them in person due to the pandemic though… HWANHEE: ‘Crazy About you’ the song itself is really my style of music, so I am pleased, but it also feels a bit awkward to be back with a song that’s heartbreaking. But I am very excited and happy to be back with HONEY10! XIAO: As always, we really want to get on stage and show you guys our performance. It’s always so exciting and fun to get on stage. And I anticipate each day. Tell us how the name ‘Novella’ became the title, and what does it mean or signify to each of you? KUHN: Novella refers to a novel or long short story, and expresses the happy memories and the sadness of the present in a narration. KOGYEOL: It was chosen because we felt that the title fit the concept of the album the best. I think it’s somewhat lyrical and stimulates sensitivity. BIT-TO: I think it goes well with the vibe of the title track ‘Crazy About You.’ And I feel that it’s a new challenge for us. SUNYOUL: We’re are back with new music through this album, so it’s a new narration for UP10TION I think. GYUJIN: We thought about a title that could refer to a story of being in a relationship and breaking up, then got to choose [Novella]. Please pay close attention to how UP10TION tell the stories of lovers getting to know each other and the aftermath of the breakup. HWANHEE: We named the album [Novella] to complement the vibe of the songs. I want this album to seem like a novel. To me, [Novella] means that ‘We wrote a great novel with this album.’ XIAO: This is our 10th album, and it’s another precious memory for me. Please name a track that you are personally the most attached from this album. KUHN: I love the title track ‘Crazy About You’ the most. KOGYEOL: ‘Incredible’ for me, it’s a great song.
