1. Tell me how you feel after finishing your new single “TABOO” due on July 31?
I’m so excited!
I did the best work ever, and I want every one all over the world to listen to my new song!
2. Your theme for this single is decadence. Could you tell me why you brought decadence as the theme?
Because it is my personal main theme.
I have always been strongly attracted to the world of gothic or decadence, and my mission has been to express these worlds with songs and music.
