In the vibrant clip, the K-pop idol makes her way across several floral-themed sets. They include one with mirrors on all four walls decorated with shrubbery, as well as a garden filled to the brim with flowers of all kinds as she’s perched on a giant swing, admiring the view.
“Aria-ria, aria-ria / I’m throwing you away for keeping me locked up / As I gently let go of the breath I’ve been holding / Aria-ria, aria-ria,” she belts in the chorus. The clip also features shots of the idol performing sleek choreography, alongside a group a dancers.
‘Aria’ marks Yerin’s first music release since GFRIEND’s disbandment and departure from Source Music in May 2021, as well as her first-ever as a solo artist. In addition to its lead single, the record also includes four other songs: ‘Intro: Bloom’, ‘Believer’, ‘Lalala’ and ‘Time’.
Yerin made her debut with GFRIEND in 2015, alongside Sowon, Eunha, Yuju, SinB and Umji. Over the course of their six-year career, the girl group released 10 mini-albums and three full-length records.
Following the girl group’s disbandment, main vocalist Yuju embarked on a solo career, kicking it off with the mini-album ‘Rec.’ Meanwhile, members Eunha, SinB and Umji re-debuted as the trio VIVIZ in January 2022. Final member Sowon will soon appear in the television series Chilling Co-habitation, marking her first-ever acting role.
Last month, VIVIZ became the first-ever K-pop girl group to perform on Grammy’s Global Spin series. The trio had performed a live rendition of their debut single ‘BOP BOP!’ at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza, a cultural landmark in Seoul, while styled in modern interpretations of the traditional Korean Hanbok.
