HyunA has joined the world of YouTube!
The 27-year old has joined the popular video-sharing social platform to give her fans a peek into her daily life.
Titled "HyunA-ing", just like the teaser image she posted a few weeks ago on her social media, the show is set to premiere on September 29th. The singer had dropped an image on her instagram page with the words 'HyunA-ing' decorated with flowers against a black background.

A post shared by Hyun Ah (@hyunah_aa) on

The idol captioned the picture saying it was a spoiler and tagged PNATION, the label created by PSY that is now the home to artists Crush, E'Dawn, Jessi and HyunA.
In her first video upload, which was a prologue to her new series, she explained here decision to start a video channel on the platform.
"I want to show a side of myself that I couldn't capture through my new album," she said. "I want it to be raw, just as is."
In the video that she shared, snippets of HyunA's daily life can be seen. Whether it's hanging out with friends, strolling through the streets and having interesting quotes catch her eye, or sweet moments with her boyfriend, K-pop idol former PENTAGON & TRIPLE H member E'Dawn, it all seems to part of the new video channel.
But one thing's for sure, her adorable furry friend So-geum will have a starring role in the series!
As for the aesthetic direction of the channel, she shared that she wanted to "put in all the moods and vibes that [she] has been in to lately."
That means, "Retro Futurism-esque filters and vibes" and "old-timey fonts", as well as references to Internet aesthetics of the early '00s.
She's well-prepared with examples of these, too: At one point, she tells the videographer, "I have some references, can I send them to you?"
Many fans have responded quite well so far, some even talking about the nostalgia when HyunA mentions "Retro Futurism" which was the title and concept of the final album the subunit TRIPLE H put forward, of which she was a part of alongside boyfriend E'Dawn and his former fellow PENTAGON member Hui.
The singer also revealed her potential schedule for video uploads.
"To cure the Sunday Scaries, maybe we could upload every Sunday evening," she suggested. "Or Mondays, to start the week off."
But naming her website was one big challenge, she told her fans.
To start, she said, "They (presumably P Nation executives) didn't like what I came up with. Hyojong (her boyfriend) didn't like it either."
So she enlisted the help of her fanbase and took to Instagram Live to brainstorm potential names — a fan suggested "HyunA-ing" and the rest, as they say, is history.
HyunA last returned to stage with the subunit TRIPLE H with former PENTAGON member E'Dawn and Hui with their second EP 'REtro Futurism'.
Her last solo comeback was in 2017 with the single 'Lip&Hip', which was a track to give thanks to her fans on her 10th anniversary since debut.
The first episode of HyunA-ing officially airs on 29 September 2019.
