Choi Suwana soloist who took his first steps in the show Produce x 101 confided in us in an exclusive interview!
Hello Suhwan, can you introduce yourself?
Hello, I’m Choi Suhwan, a solo singer. A lot of people know me from the show Produce X 101. Now I’m experimenting with singing, dancing, writing, choreography and even musicals.
When did you start dreaming of becoming a singer?
My dream began to take shape in elementary school. I took part in a singing competition which I won and I think I enjoyed performing on stage. I was in a dance club and joined an academy to pursue my dream.
How would you describe your style of music?
Regardless of the genre, I experiment with different things. I want to be a singer who can play ballads and R&B, EDM and rock in his own style. Lately I’ve perfected my R&B techniques a lot. I’m still practicing writing lyrics. I think the more music I make, the more things there are to discover.
Tell us about your latest single “Left On Read”!
It is a tender love song that embodies the conflict of a person who is ready to confess his love, sends the other a message that does not answer him. It’s R&B with a certain rhythm.
Tell us more about the process of writing the single.
I was involved in writing the lyrics to this song and wanted to make it one that young people my age who are falling in love could relate to. I received the instructions in English without the lyrics. The title is Let On Read so I kept that in mind. The clip also tries to rely on the lyrics.
Can you tell us more about your plans for the future?
night of the city contains 3 sections. So there’s still one song left. For some time I have been developing my activities as an actor. I auditioned for a musical and was invited to a performance that was scheduled in Spain in April.
Do you remember your concert in Toulouse? [Woori Festival] ? How was it ?
It was my first time singing in front of so many people, so I was nervous but also very happy. Singers always need a stage and I think I’m happiest when I’m on stage. If I have the opportunity, I would like to return to Toulouse.
What are your hobbies ? What do you do when you are stressed?
I’m the couch potato type. I stay at home or train. My motto in life is very simple. I enjoy watching Marvel movies and playing video games online. Sometimes I cook. Other times I play guitar.
Do you have a message you would like to convey to your French and European fans?
I feel very honored to have started my foreign activities in France. I hope there will be more opportunities to meet my European fans in the future. I can go anytime, anywhere as long as there is a scene, so I will keep working hard. Thank you very much.
Many thanks to Choi Suhwan, LYNNA Entertainment and Laury Verdoux from Moonlight PR for this interview.
