In the interview, Aiki, who was asked if who is really good at dancing among K-pop singers, honestly replied, "There are so many talented friends. But in K-pop, I think Chung Ha and (SHINee) Taemin are really good dancers."
In particular, the choreographer of Refund Sisters Don't Touch Me added her standards when choosing a dancer.
"I have my own standards when choosing dancers for a team. Of course, I think skills and effort are basic. First of all, if the face is too pretty, the gaze goes to the face (rather than the dance). And I don't think they should be too thin. I believe that you have to have your own charm."
The Mnet Street Woman Fighter participant hoped that she can become "Aiki, who knows how to dance" for those who are rooting and supporting her.
