Rookie girl band, Chi Chi, once again said they want to be like Girls’ Generation in the future and stressed that Girls’ Generation are their role models and that they really respect them.
When the girl group, Chi Chi, debuted last month, they said, “Our goal is to be like Girls’ Generation”, for which they have been misunderstood as pretentious.
To clarify this misunderstanding, Chi Chi once again spoke about their wish to become as successful as Girls’ Generation, this time stressing that Girls’ Generation are their role models rather than rivals.
The girls of Chi Chi said, “We respect our seniors, Girls’ Generation, and that was why we mentioned that we hope to be like them. We also said that we want to be loved by everyone, regardless of sex and age, just like them. Girls’ Generation are our role models and we would like to show our respect for them. They are a top idol group not only in Korea, but in whole Asia. They are role models to us who are lacking in many areas.”
Meanwhile, Girls’ Generation has been announced to return to the Korean music market in September.

CHI CHI debuted as an electronic house group with their track, “Don’t Play Around” in the beginning of March. Even though they got negative comments on their live performances, the girls didn’t give up and decided to show a better side of them.
Su-i explained, “The strongest point for CHI CHI is that we perform unique music for a girl group. Even though the public isn’t familiar with our members individually, they’re familiar with ‘Don’t Play Around.’”
The girls also explained that they’ll end promotions for their debut song at the end of this month, and will be coming back somewhere in May with a new song. The new song is said to be a lot more melodious than their debut track.
