On Oct. 24, Rising Star Entertainment’s K-Pop girl group, ARIAZ will be entering the K-Pop industry as fresh rookies.
For those who might have some knowledge on opera, you might recognize the term ‘aria’ in their group name, ARIAZ. Aria is usually a long song accompanying a solo voice. With reference to Star Empire, they want to gather all the voices together and sing in one voice, hence came up with the name ARIAZ.
Their debut mini album “Grand Opera” is actually the first of the 3 part story which they plan to show their fans.
Consisting of 5 different tracks, the girls are more than ready to show off what they have been preparing for their long awaited debut. Their title track is ‘Moonlight Aria’ and it is a song that has a glitch hop medium tempo dance rhythm.
The 6 members greeted the reporters who had came out to attend the press showcase and started with photo taking session.
After showing off their poses and perfect smiles, they left the stage to get ready for their debut stage performance of ‘Moonlight Aria’.
Dressed in matching outfits, ARIAZ appeared on stage once again and prepared themselves for the first ever performance of ‘Moonlight Aria.

Moving on to the Q&A session, there were many questions that were directed towards the girls.
Some would recognise members YunJi and SiHyeon as they had previously appeared on Mnet “Produce 101” Season 1 and JTBC “Mixnine”. Other members such as HyoGyeong, YeoRi and DaWon had also made their appearance on JTBC “Mixnine”.
One reporter asked about their long awaited debut and how they feel after appearing on several audition programs and the feeling of finally being able to stand on stage as an idol.
YunJi shared that it felt surreal even until now as they had worked really hard for the debut to happen. She also mentioned how last night, all the members were together and told each other to not cry as they have been waiting for this to happen. Adding on, they also encouraged each other to work even harder.
However, when saying that, DaWon could not help but feel emotional and tears could be seen streaming down her cheeks. Other members also were unable to hold back their emotions.
Moving on to a lighter note, they mentioned that since they had been through long training periods as well as the experience of being on audition programs, they believe that they can considered as rookies that do not act like rookie, proving the confidence they have in themselves.
They plan to differentiate themselves from other groups that had debuted this year and also elaborated on some of the stories which would be later release. Together with future two albums, they plan to let many understand ARIAZ’s one and only universe and concept.
Previously, it was said that “Grand Opera” is the first part of the series which they are releasing. Through these 3 albums, many would be able to get a better idea of ARIAZ’s unique theme and music that are able to set them apart from other groups.
Another reporter also asked if they wish to appear on any reality programs and the girls were already excited at the thoughts of thinking about it. Each of them shared their opinion and some of the programs they wish to appear on include “Running Man”, “Knowing Bros”, and “Law of the Jungle”.
Finally, when asked about their role model, they picked out Apink as the group that they look up to.
The reason behind is because they also hope that ARIAZ will become a group that will last for a long time. Many K-Pop fans might have already heard of the ‘7 year jinx’ as most groups tend to disband or have departure of members due to the expiration of contracts.
Seeing how Apink is one of the veteran K-Pop girl groups that are still actively promoting as a whole even after so many years, ARIAZ confessed that they want to become a group just like them.
The press showcase ended and all 6 members talked about how they will be promoting with all their hearts and hope that many would check out their debut.

Congratulations to ARIAZ on their debut!
