About the music::
They recently released their 3rd EP, Bitter Sweet, which contains 8 tracks. “메로 (Melo)” is about the awkward feelings of love and loneliness in everyday life. It is not based on real life experiences. It is different from their pervious releases, because it shows their softer side.
– Originally it was just So Young and Mi Jung, but it was hard to make a band with just two people. So, they added members.
– They put on a powerful stage but off stage they want the same things every girl wants: love, time with friends, and family.
– Out of all Sweet Revenge songs so far So Young’s favorite is “Sugar Candy,” because the song really connects with her
– Hyuna changed her appearance because she wants to get married eventually
– So Young’s music style is inspired by the Beatles because they have great melodies
– If they were a male rock band they say the name would just be Revenge
– In their free time they like to go to local cafes, read, & write lyrics (So Young), play pc games (Hwa Yeon), play with cats (Mi Jung), watch animation (Hyuna)
– Their groups nickname Hong Dae Si Dae (Hong Dae’s girl’s generation)
