with K-Pop in Mass

Purple Kiss, a six-member girl group, under RBW Entertainment kicked off their "Festa" Tour in Boston, Massachusetts on Tuesday, October 31st. Purple Kiss consists of members Goeun, Ireh, Dosie, Chaein, Yuki, and Swan.K-Pop in Mass had a chance to interview the members as they prepared for their first U.S. tour. Check out their answers below!

1.) Welcome to Boston, Purple Kiss! We are so excited to be the first stop on the Festa Tour. What was the preparation/rehearsal process like to prepare for the Festa tour?1.) 보스턴에 오신 것을 환영합니다, Purple Kiss! FESTA 투어 첫 번째 공연이어서 매우 기대돼요. FESTA 투어를 준비하기 위한 연습 및 준비과정은 어땠나요?[나고은] 미국에서도 공연을 해보고 싶었어서 저희도 너무 설레고 기대되는데요, 미주 투어를 준비하면서 몇몇 곡은 가사를 영어로 바꿔서 연습도 하고, 특별한 유닛 무대도 연습하며 즐겁게 준비했던 것 같아요. 얼른 보여드리고 싶네요![Goeun] We are so excited because we always wanted to perform in the U.S.. As we were preparing for this US Tour, w we made and practiced English versions of several songs and we also had fun practicing our unit stage. Can’t wait to show everybody asap!2.) What are you most looking forward to showing Plory on the Festa Tour?
FESTA 투어에서 플로리에게 가장 보여주고 싶은 것은 무엇인가요?
[이레] 저는 저희의 데뷔곡이자, 저희의 색깔이 짙은 Ponzona 무대를 빨리 보여드리고 싶습니다. 미국에서는 처음 무대를 선보이기 때문에 가장 ‘퍼플키스’다운 무대를 보여드리고 싶기 때문입니다!
[채인] 저희의 무대 자체를 처음 보시는 분들도 매우 많으실 테니 무대를 잘하는 모습을 보여드리고 싶습니다.
[Ireh] It must be Ponzona because it is our debut song which which I believe best represents our team's color. We want to show you the most “PURPLE KISS” style stage, as this is our first performance in the U.S.!
[Chaein] Since it will be a first-time experience for many people to see our stage, I hope we can deliver a great performance and provide the best stage
3.) This is your first US Tour, what are you most looking forward to doing or trying while you are in the US?
이번이 여러분의 첫 미국 투어인데, 미국에 머무는 동안 가장 하고 싶은 것이나 시도해보고 싶은 것은 무엇인가요?
[도시] 저는 하늘 구경하고 구름 사진 찍는 걸 좋아해서 미국에서 바라본 하늘을 매일 촬영해 보고 싶어요! 그리고 지역별로 유명한 음식들도 꼭 먹어보고 싶어요![Dosie] I'd like to take pictures of the American sky every day because I enjoy watching the sky and taking photos of the clouds. I would also like to try the famous dishes of each city.4.) What do you do to prepare for a performance before you go out on stage?
무대에 나가기 전, 공연을 준비하기 위해 어떤 것을 하나요?
[유키] 저는 긴장을 완화시키기 위해 어깨 뼈 소리를 냅니다!
[수안] 옷매무새를 확인하고 무대 동선들을 다시 생각해 봅니다!
[Yuki] I crack my shoulder bones to relieve my nervousness.
[Swan] I check my outfit and revise the stage movements.
5.) Performing on tour is a lot of work, what do you like to do in between shows to rest and relax?
투어 중 공연 사이에 휴식을 취하고 휴식을 취하기 위해 어떤 활동을 좋아하나요?
[도시] 일단 음악을 무조건 듣고, 멤버들과 근처 산책을 하거나 맛있는 커피 한 잔을 마시면서 휴식을 취합니다!
[채인] 저는 밖에 나가서 구경하는 걸 굉장히 좋아하기 때문에 투어 중 시간이 나면 그 도시만의 분위기를 느끼러 나갈 것 같아요!
[Dosie] I definitely listen to music, take a walk around with my members, or take a break having a cup of nice coffee.
[Chaein] I really love to sight-see outside, so if I have time during the tour, I will go out and experience the vibe of that city!
6.) What is one item you’ve packed for the tour that you can’t leave home without?
투어를 위해 짐을 싸면서, 집에 절대 두고 올 수 없었던, 꼭 챙겨야만 했던 아이템이 있나요?
[수안] 가습기와 마사지기입니다.
[이레] 많은 도시에서 열심히 무대하기 위해서 비타민을 많이 챙겼습니다
[Swan] Humidifier and a massage machine.
[Ireh] I packed a lot of vitamins to perform with our full energy.
7.) As you prepared for the tour, how did it feel revisiting the different concepts you’ve done since debut?
투어를 준비하며 데뷔 때부터 시도했던 다양한 컨셉을 다시 경험하고, 느끼고 있을텐데, 어땠나요?
[나고은] ‘우리가 그동안 다양한 노래와 컨셉을 시도해 오면서 퍼플키스만의 아이덴티티를 만들어 왔구나, 꽤 열심히 살았네’ 싶은 뿌듯한 마음도 들었고 미국에 계신 플로리들에게 얼른 보여주고 싶은 마음이 가장 크게 들었던 것 같아요!
[이레] 퍼플키스 음악의 스펙트럼을 다시 한번 느끼게 되면서 저희의 투어가 더 다양하고 알찬 투어가 될 것 같다고 생각했습니다!
[GOEUN] While trying various songs and concepts over the years, we have created our unique Purple Kiss identity. It made me feel proud, thinking that we've worked quite hard. I'm most eager to show this to our PLORYS in the United States
[IREH] As I once again felt how wide the spectrum of Purple Kiss's music, I thought that our tour would be even more diverse and fulfilling!
8.) Your most recent comeback 7HEAVEN was a refreshing, summer concept, are there any new concepts or genres you’d like to try in the future?가장 최근 컴백인 7HEAVEN은 상쾌한 여름 컨셉이었는데, 앞으로 시도해보고 싶은 새로운 컨셉이나 장르가 있나요?[도시] 저는 힙합 컨셉을 꼭 해보고 싶습니다! 공연이나 무대에서 더 즐길 수 있는 분위기의 곡으로 활동하고 싶어요!
[수안] 힙한 컨셉이나 아련, 몽환적인 컨셉해보고싶습니다!
[Dosie] I really want to try hip-hop! I want to perform with songs that have good vibes with a more enjoyable atmosphere for performances and stages!
[Swan] Either hipster like, or a dreamy, ethereal concept.
9.) You’re known as a self-producing group, where do you draw inspiration from when writing and producing new music?
여러분은 자체 음악을 프로듀싱하는 그룹으로, 새 음악을 만들고 제작할 때 영감을 어디서 얻나요?
[채인] 보통은 어떠한 단어에서 얻는 편입니다. 쉽게 말하자면 친구랑 얘기를 하거나, 책을 읽거나, 영화를 보다가 언급되는 말에 영감을 받는 것 같아요.[Chaein] I usually find inspiration from random words. To put it simply, I get inspired when I talk to friends, read books, or hear sentences in movies."10.) If you could give your past self at the time of debut one piece of advice, what would it be?
데뷔 시점의 과거 자신에게 조언을 한가지 한다면, 무엇을 하겠어요?
[이레] 데뷔 때 머릿결이 엄청 좋았는데 그게 평생 가는 게 아니라는 걸 알려주고 싶습니다
[유키] ‘후회할 바엔 다 해버려!’라고 말해주고 싶습니다.
[Ireh] At the time of debut, my hair was like a silk, and I want to tell myself that it's not something that lasts forever.
[Yuki] I would say “just do it, rather than regret”
11.) With Boston being the first tour on the stop, Boston Plory are excited to experience the set list for the first time! What three words would you use to describe the tour or set list?보스턴이 투어 일정 중 첫 번째이기 때문에 보스턴 플로리는 투어 세트리스트를 처음으로 마주하는 것을 매우 기대하고 있어요! 투어 또는 세트리스트를 세 단어로 설명해주세요![수안] 채워짐, 텐션, 퍼플키스
[Swan] Fulfillment, energy, purple kiss.
12.) Your first show is in Boston on Halloween, which is a big treat for Plory! What is your favorite kind of sweet treat or candy?
할로윈에 보스턴에서 첫 공연이 열리는데, 이것은 플로리에게 큰 선물이에요! 여러분이 좋아하는 달콤한 간식이나 사탕은 무엇인가요?
[유키] 저는 푸딩을 좋아하는 편입니다!
[Yuki] I love puddings!
