The clip follows the K-pop star as she heads to a retro diner called ‘Glassy’ for a cup of coffee. There, she comes across a news story about a giant glass shoe that has mysteriously appeared in the “centre of the city”. Things soon take a fantastical turn as she’s transported to a world where giant gift boxes line the street in place of buildings.
‘Glassy’ is the title track of her debut solo single album of the same name. The project also features two B-sides: ‘Express Moon’ and the previously released ‘Autumn Memories’ with SG Wannabe’s Lee Seok-hoon.
The new single album makes the 19-year-old singer the second IZ*ONE member to officially make their solo debut, following former leader Kwon Eun-bi. Kwon had debuted last month with the six-track mini-album ‘Open’, alongside its lead single ‘Door’.
Kwon had previously shared her thoughts on going solo in an interview with South China Morning Post. “I feel good overall, but I have a lot of weight on my shoulders about needing to show my own colours,” she confessed. “It’s my first time, so I’m trying to show myself as best as I can to everyone.”
In other IZ*ONE news, former member Miyawaki Sakura has reportedly signed a new contract with BTS‘ agency HYBE Labels, and is set to join an upcoming girl group managed by HYBE’s subsidiary Source Music.
The label’s upcoming girl group will also allegedly include Produce 48 contestant and Pledis Entertainment trainee Heo Yun-jin as well as ex-IZ*ONE members Kim Chae-won and Kim Min-ju.
