SEOUL, Sept. 10 (Yonhap) — K-pop singers HyunA and Dawn, who are in their sixth-year as a couple, will be on stage after releasing their first duet album "1+1=1." Like the title of the album, which symbolizes two individuals becoming one, the general theme of the music included revolves around "love."  

 

During an online press conference held on Thursday, which was also the album's release date, HyunA said, "At first, I didn’t try to make a duet album," adding, “I wanted to show the audience a ‘tiki-taka’ on the stage, not a cringe-worthy appearance as lovers.”'

 

The title track "Ping Pong" instantly reminds listeners of a Moombahton dance song and the cute lyrics co-written by Dawn and HyunA compares love between two people with table tennis.  

Since both former idol group members have a knack for performance, the couple focused on dance sequences. 

Dawn said, "I think the universal language is dance," and explained, "I decided to make a song that can make people dance."

"What else would HyunA and Dawn do together?" HyunA said. "We danced really hard to meet people's expectations."


"I monitored the music video, and it felt like we were doing a dance battle. I was nervous during the dance break at the end. However, when that time comes, I put a lot of energy into it."

On the other hand, Dawn jokingly replied, "I felt like I was interacting rather than competing against each other."

In addition to the title song, the track list was filled with songs that felt the feelings of real lovers.

"Deep Dive," a song written by Dawn when HyunA was shooting an ad in the U.S., is a serenade dedicated to her loved ones.

"I wanted to make a fairy tale-like song. I guess I was affectionate (to HyunA) at this time. When I see warmth emanating from the song itself. If you're in love, you'll relate to it a lot," Dawn said. 

As there have been no cases in which Korean idol couples have released albums together, attention is being paid to whether the two will showcase a special "chemistry" on stage or how their music performance will turn out.

However, HyunA and Dawn both agreed that they just want to enjoy their music with fans.
