Through this new song “It’s OK to be me” proved LIONESSES’ musical growth as trio that no one can’t feel the absence of all the members who left due to the expiration of the contractIt. “It’s OK to be me,” which has been collaborating with producer Zantin, recording engineer Park Byung-jin, and music video director Cho Han-hee since their debut song, was completed with choreography by Tantan and collaboration with singer Mi-no.

Damjun, a lyricist, composer, and leader of “It’s OK to be me,” said, “I heard that the word ‘As I am’ is interpreted as the origin of the word ‘beautiful’ in Korean. it has came from ancient Korean language “Aram-dapda.” In this, “Aram” mean “I”, and “dapda” means “ness”. (Own persona) We are often oppressed to expressing ourselves. Because of the “cowardly look of the courageous” in the lyrics of the great Rock band “Jaurim”, we often miss out on “Persona”. Netflix series “Under the queen’s umbrella” also features Queen Hwa-ryeong, who comforts Prince Kyesung, who hid her self as a woman and hid herself in a small room and put on makeup alone, saying, “One day, even people with something different like you won’t have to hide.” I think it’s now, as Hwaryeong said in there.

Also, Kanghan, a member of Lionesses who first introduced another inner self, Drag Queen “Rooya”, to the world through the new song “It’s OK to be me,” said, “There can be many aspects inside a person. And I think it’s all a precious part of the person I am. “I hope this song will serve as an opportunity for many people to love the ‘precious parts that make up me’ more.”

Lee Malrang, a member of Lionesses, said, “For the first time in a year since our debut, we prepared a song that shows a group dance performance together. “As much as we worked hard on it, I hope many people will feel more joy through this song.”
