Choi Ye-na Apologizes For “Hate Rodrigo” Controversy, “I Should Have Been More Careful”

On January 15th, Choi Ye-na held a showcase to commemorate the release of her third mini album “GOOD MORNING” at Yes24 Live Hall in Gwangjin-gu, Seoul. At the event, the female singer said, “I should have been more careful when working on the song. I believe that I should have been more cautious in all aspects while considering so many opinions in my mind”. He promised, “If you continue supporting me and waiting for me, I’ll try my best to become a better artist in the future”.

Releasing her previous album “Hate XX” in June last year, Choi Yena even added the expression “Hate” along with the name of pop star Olivia Rodrigo in her title track “Hate Rodrigo”. Although she explained, “It’s a song that expresses various emotions, such as admiration and jealousy in a cute and honest way. I maximized my affection and admiration by expressing it in an ironic way. I really respect her because she’s so pretty and perfect”, negative responses continue to pour out.

The music video of “Hate Rodrigo” was switched to private after a few days due to trademark issues and infringement of portrait rights. Choi Yena also ended her comeback promotion after only a week.

After staying silent for a month, Choi Yena’s agency issued an apology, saying “We will humbly receive all the feedback and criticism from fans, listen to various opinions and make efforts to do better in the future”.

“GOOD MORNING” is Choi Yena’s new album 7 months after “Hate XX” release. The title song of the same name is a powerful and energetic song that conveys a message of hoping people who listen to the song will have a good morning through the female singer’s fresh vocal. In particular, Choi Yena even participated in writing and composing the songs.

After releasing her third mini album on music sites at 6 p.m. on January 15th, Choi Ye-na will hold a showcase at Yes24 Live Hall at 8 p.m.
