Miss A members(L – R): Jia, Min, Fei, Suzy
This being their third time in Singapore, Miss A is no stranger to this sunny island. Like angels dressed in their white stage outfits, the girls posed and had big smiles for the media. Although the press conference at Hard Rock Hotel Sentosa was held in the bright early morning, the girls were all fresh and bubbly!
If you are unfamiliar, the girls debuted in June 2010 under JYP Entertainment. With their unique signature choreography and hit songs like “Bad Girl Good Girl” and “Breathe”, the girls captured the hearts of many. A group that is well-versed in more than one language, it is no surprise that the press conference was conducted in a myriad of languages.
Chinese members Fei and Jia felt at ease, being able to converse in Mandarin with the emcee. Min was speaking in perfect English and at times helping to explain to her members in korean. Suzy had a translator with her, as she was fluent only in Korean.
Nonetheless, Suzy tried her best to express some of her thoughts in Mandarin, definitely deserving a huge cookie reward! Min told the media how Fei and Jia have been coaching the other two in Mandarin. Not only that, they try to fit in extra classes into their already busy schedule! Jia teased Min and exposed her “mixed-translation” of Macdonalds which brought laughter in the room.

A prominent image that stands out in Miss A’s albums would be the pair of legs featured as the album covers. When asked to reveal the identity of those legs, Jia explained that the legs did not belong to any member. The legs are merely a signature trademark that they have adopted to represent their style.
When asked which member has the prettiest legs, Min earnestly said, “We all have different types of legs”, which got the room roaring with laughter. She went on to describe the traits of each members’ legs. Jia’s legs are long and thin, Min described her thighs as being “kind of big”, Fei’s are athletic, and finally Suzy’s are of the girly type.
When asked about their favorite tracks, Jia’s pick was “Mr Johnny”, simply because of the rap. She explained that it took her some time to fluently rap in English, and she was proud of the end-product. Min chose “Love Alone” which is sung in English as she felt it could bring them closer to international fans. Fei and Suzy picked out “One to Ten” and “Help Me” respectively.
Fei then shared their most memorable experience since the debut which was winning their first award as a new rookie group. Being recognized for their talents and efforts, only makes them want to strive and work harder.
Miss A were fully pumped for their first showcase concert and had no worries whatsoever. They were simply eager to meet with their fans and have a good time.
