Q. Please tell us any behind-the-scenes stories from Flip That!

Heejin: Haseul unnie sang her adlib at “flip it flip itttt” so sweetly that it was funny (ㅎㅎ)

Hyunjin: When filming the MV in the train station, we laughed for so long while looking at each others’ faces that my mouth had muscle spasms ㅋㅋㅋ

Haseul: Because the choreo was easier than previous albums, I thought I wouldn’t sweat, but the song’s fast, so I don’t get to rest. So I think I sweat on stage more than I thought I would.

Yeojin: We filmed part of the MV outdoors, and I saw frogs ㅎㅎ

Vivi: There were lots of scenes of us smiling in the MV, and after smiling for a long time, my cheeks got stiff ㅎㅎ

Kim Lip: I put on ribbon earrings that were bewilderingly large.

Jinsoul: It was almost my first time just smiling this widely for recording, so whenever I monitored myself, it felt totally new. Even having thoughts like, “This is LOONA, right..?” ㅋㅋ

Choerry: There’s a story about a time where we had to act sleepy and bored, and I actually fell asleep..!

Yves: Working hard at filming for a pretty picture, for a longer time than expected, the members really really worked hard.

Chuu: Due to schedule reasons, I got to choreo lessons late and Haseul unnie smoothly taught me in an enjoyable way ㅎㅎ

Go Won: While moving around to make dance formations, I stepped on Yves unnie’s foot and unnie continued her part while having a shoe off.. It was a relief that it was during practice! Sorry unnie~♡
