Zia started promotions last week for her first studio album “Road Movie” and having endured countless rumors in the past of being ‘ugly’, ‘fat’, etc, has had to contend with a new rumor recently, lipsyncing at music show performances.
Zia released her first album “Road Movie” on 14th July and subsequently performing on KBS Music Bank and SBS Inkigayo over the weekend and revealed her face to the public for the first time, causing an explosive reaction from netizens. She became the No.1 search term immediately after the shows and her song “I Love You, I’m Sorry” also gained immense popularity and sales.
But amist the euphoria, some netizens also voiced their suspicions that Zia might have lipsynced during her performances. This was her first time singing in public, having previously only released digital singles online without much promotion nor showing her face. Netizens commented, “Doesn’t seem to be singing live. Is she lipsyncing with the CD playing in the background?”.
Zia management company expressed, “It’s not unusual to have doubts like this since this is the first time she is singing in public. No matter what, she will prove herself with her vocals, she will definitely not attempt lipsyncing by any means.” Zia had never shown her face before this and had adopted a mysterious concept which unfortunately led to many rumors surfacing about her.
