Interview in Hong Kong (i-CABLE)


Exclusive interview on YUI who tells us her feelings on coming to Hong Kong.
Translated by GC, azmikun and panda

Japanese singer songwriter YUI accepted our interview on Cable Entertainment News channel (CEN), she talked about her thoughts and feeling on coming to Hong Kong. She noted that people in Hong Kong are very friendly and passionate, but the the neon street lights and the height of the buildings gave her a fright, if she were able to, she really wants to walk around Hong Kong slowly, and enjoy it a relaxing manner.

During September 08 YUI suddenly decided to take a break, this was because since she debuted it was a long time she concentrated on music, that’s why she thought she wanted to relax a bit, it gave her time to think about a lot of things.

Thanks to blackdog for the rip
