Girl group Lovelyz members Ji-ae and Kei have donated a talent for reading interesting children’s books with sweet voices.
Lovelyz Jiae and Kei participated in the ‘Star Bookstore’ with Ten Asia and Naver Audio Clip. ‘Star Bookstore’ is a relay talent donation audio clip channel that reads children’s books selected by popular stars to children.
Ji-ae, who participated in this project, chose the Great Books story, ‘The Rabbit’s Trial’, and Kei personally chose the ‘Beauty and the Beast’.
Before reading the fairy tale, Ji-ae expressed her anticipation, saying, “This is a very interesting book when I was younger. As soon as I saw the title of the book, I chose it because I wanted to hear it quickly. I just want to hear it quickly.”
Ji-ae read ‘The Rabbit’s Trial’ with a distinctive bright and cheerful voice. Various characters such as the scholar, tiger, and rabbit appearing in the book sounded differently and easily digested the multiple roles of one person. However, Ji-ae, who often speaks fast, read a fairy tale at a high speed as if rapping at the beginning and gave out several NGs. However, due to the cute mistake, the atmosphere on the scene became more harmonious.
Ji-ae said, “It is an honor to be able to tell good stories to young children and even donate,” she said. “Thank you very much for inviting me.” Kei also smiled brightly, saying, “Thank you very much. I will read children’s books with all my heart.” She laughed, saying, “I didn’t know much about ‘The Rabbit’s Trial.’ But expect to listen the story with Ji-ae’s voice.”
Kei said, “I liked ‘Beauty and the Beast’ when I was a child. I read the fairy tale in advance, but it was the same as what I saw when I was a child. The prince I was waiting for was in the book ‘Beauty and the Beast’.” “What kind of prince were you waiting for?” Kei said with a sense, “Before, the prince on a white horse was the ideal type, but now I just want to meet a man even though he is not a good-looking man. I’m tired of waiting too much. All I need is a prince.”
When the recording started, Kei read the story seriously. Like the main vocalist of Lovelyz, she read the story of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ with a clear voice. All the staff at the scene fell in love with Kay’s voice and focused on the fairy tale.
The two people who finished reading the fairy tale increased their tension until the end. Ji-ae and Kei asked for interest, saying, “Please subscribe and like a lot of people,” and “Please give us a lot of love to Star Bookstore and our Lovelyz.”
In ‘Star Bookstore’, where one star reads two fairy tales every week, if the number of audio clips per star is more than 10,000 times, Happy Bean will make a matching donation of 1 million won in the star name. In addition, if the total number of subscribers to ‘Star Bookstore’ exceeds 100,000, Naver’s Parents i will make an additional donation of 10 million won. About 27 teams of stars directly read children’s books for children of the reading-vulnerable class, who have difficulty accessing children’s books due to their home environment and disability. It is a hope project where you can listen to interesting fairy tales and share your warm heart with more children.
‘The Rabbit’s Trial’ read by Lovelyz Ji-ae will be released on the 14th, and the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ read by Kei will be released on the 17th.
Meanwhile, Lovelyz made a comeback by releasing their 7th mini album ‘UNFORGETTABLE’ after breaking the gap of the last 1 year and 4 months.
