She listened to IVE’s latest release, “LOVE DIVE, ” during the live stream. There, she revealed that she had received the song as a demo and loved the song.

However, as most K-pop fans know, Sunmi ultimately did not release the song, and it went to IVE in the end. Though she loved the song, Sunmi revealed she eventually chose not to keep it because she thought it would be better if a group sang it instead of a soloist. She believed it would allow a group to show off their charms.
