10cm performs on “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook"

On March 11th, indie duo 10cm guested on KBS’s “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” for the second time, and performed three tracks from their debut album.

The duo weren’t able to perform one of their hit tracks, “Americano“, during their last guest appearance because the song failed to pass broadcast regulations.

Yoo Hee Yeol mentioned, “At the time, we asked you guys to just take that part out of the lyrics and sing it for us on the show, but you said you couldn’t because of your pride in the song. We found out that you did re-submit it for evaluation shortly after – what brought you to make such a decision?”

They truthfully answered, “We thought about it and realized that since it’s a song about coffee, we might be able to get CF deals for it. We could use it commercially. We’re hungry musicians after all (laughter).”

The two continued, “The fact that our singles became such big hits before the release of our first official album put a lot of pressure on us. We wanted to go down a different route, one that combined both music that’s easy to listen to, but with a certain beauty.”

The MC then complimented, “Your title track for your first album, ‘That’s Not It,’ describes a very hilarious situation in the lyrics. Instead of crying because the man broke up with his girlfriend, he reveals that he was crying because his boiler was broken.”

10cm shyly explained, “We didn’t know how to write lyrics that would seem cool (laughter).”
