Home » BEG’s Miryo to debut solo!

Brown Eyed Girls‘ member Miryo is stepping out on her own as a solo singer.

Taking into considering her promotions with Honey Family, this is her first solo album after being in the music industry for 13 long years.

Her first solo album ‘MIRYO aka JOHONEY‘ has caused her so much nervous anxiety that her muscles have physically tensed up.

“A lot of people ask me what JOHONEY means,” she said. “Jo is my last name, and I got ‘Honey’ from Honey Family. I wanted a fresh, new feel of debuting for the first time, as before I was always a member of a group. This is something I realized lately, but now I have a whole new respect for solo artists.”

Miryo personally produced and penned the lyrics to all five songs on her new album, and she has also collaborated with famous song writers and Indie-scene artists to complete the project.

“I enjoy music that you can dance to, and the genre that makes me want to dance the most these days is electronic music, so there’s a lot of that in there,” she explained. “I like rock a lot too, but Katy Perry-style rock. Songs that is easy to sing along with. Since we do a lot of powerful styles of music with Brown Eyed Girls, I wanted to try something a little more light and easy.”

Not only has her music style changed, her image has too. She has become a lot more feminine. Fans seem to agree that she has blossomed, and are questioning whether or not she underwent plastic surgery.

“I wanted to try an epicene image, so I sang a lot of songs about breakups, as well as some cute songs,” she said. “As far as looks go, I have to agree that I look a lot better than I once did (laughs). I know that I’m not as pretty as the actresses out there, but I don’t think I’m too bad to look at (laughs). I didn’t get plastic surgery, I just looked in the mirror a lot and started paying a lot more attention to my image, and I think that helped.”

Her fellow Brown Eyed Girls members Narsha and Gain also made successful debuts as solo singers. With that said, Miryo is really feeling the pressure.

She said, “I started writing my own music a few years back. It was a lot of fun, thinking about working on my own album, but as it came time to release it, I got so nervous. I told myself not to worry and tried to become optimistic, but it’s easier said than done. I’m so nervous that my muscles are tensing up painfully.”
