Lia of ITZY, the new girl group under JYP Entertainment, said she hopes to become a person who resembles “cinnamon.”

In a video shared on the act’s V Live channel Saturday, which featured behind-the-scenes footage of ITZY’s music video for its debut single “Dalla Dalla,” Lia is seen introducing the concept of her scene to the viewers.

“My concept is a girl who is cool, proud of herself and pretty at the same time. I keep trying to imprint that image onto my mind,” she said.

Asked to give one word to describe herself, she answered she’d like to become a “cinnamon-like” person.

“Cinnamon is very unique with its strong scent, and when used with other ingredients, it mingles well with them and the food tastes better,” said Lia, adding that she hopes to have such unique charms and mingle with others just as well.


The short clip featured the singer dancing atop a car with her bandmates, clad in flashy sequined outfits.

Lia confessed the car scene was a bit scary at first, but said she got used to it.

The video ends with ITZY celebrating the group’s new start by blowing candles out on a cake.


“Since our trainee years, we’ve come a long way up to now. I’d like to thank members who’ve worked so hard and I want to say I’m proud of them,” said Lia.

The group’s name means “got it” in Korean -- reflecting the idea “ITZY’s got everything you want.”

Since its release on Tuesday, “Dalla Dalla” has been going strong on several local streaming sites.
