Meng Jia’s Career Journey with Miss A

In the same year as her debut, Miss A came back with their second album Step Up with the lead single “Breathe”. The response to this mini-album was quite positive, but the album was not as successful as the previous one.

In the second year of their career, Miss A released their first studio album titled A Class (2011). The album with the lead single “Good Bye Baby” won many Korean music awards after a few weeks of release.

As if repeating their first success, Miss A again won various nominated awards, such as the Digital Music Bonsang at the 2011 Golden Disk Awards, Best Digital Sales at the 2011 Gaon Chart Awards, and Best Dance & Electronic Song at the 2011 Korean Music Awards. Miss A were also named Best New Asian Artist at the 2011 Asia Song Festival Awards.

Apart from appearing together in the group, Miss A members also often appeared solo on Korean television shows. Jia made an appearance in the music video for M&D’s single “Close Your Mouth” (2011).

Miss A released their next mini-album Touch on February 20th, 2012. As for the music video for their lead single, “Touch”, it was released a day before the release of the mini-album, which is on February 19th, 2012. Min, Jia, Fei, and Suzy look elegant and sexier than before. The concept taken for the “Touch” music video is a little bleak, but the lyrics are about a woman’s admiration for the man who stole her heart.

There is no special choreography for Miss A’s comeback with “Touch”. JYP Entertainment managed to make fans satisfied with Miss A’s music video, especially with their unique costumes.

In October 2012, Miss A came with their next comeback through the release of a single titled “I Don’t Need A Man”. They said, “We dedicate this song to all the women who are proud of themselves.” This sentence became the opening of Miss A’s latest song, which was just released at the time, “I Don’t Need A Man”. With the Hip-Hop rhythm and lively music, Suzy, Jia, Fei, and Min started dancing excitedly at the beginning of the song’s music video.

As if declaring themselves Independent Women, Miss A‘s latest music video features the image of a tough woman. In the video, Suzy, Jia, Fei, and Min take turns appearing stylish like independent women who don’t need men. The song’s lyrics are about young women who work hard and are able to live independently without depending on men.

“Miss A want to show the image of an independent woman to match their song titled “I Don’t Need A Man”. Don’t miss this latest Miss A album,” said their agency representative. Apart from “I Don’t Need A Man”, the mini-album titled Independent Women Pt 3 also contains a number of new songs that are no less cool. In a song titled “Madness”, Miss A made a duet with 2 PM’s Taecyeon. In addition, Phil Thornalley, who produced the Pixie Lott song titled “Mama Do”, also participated in Miss A’s album.

A month after the release of the album with the lead single “I Don’t Need A Man”, Miss A also participated in promotional activities in Taiwan from November 23–25, 2012. On the first day, they started with a series of interviews, holding fan meetings and dance competitions with Taiwanese fans.

In early November 2012, Miss A started their comeback promotions with the release of Independent Woman Part 3 – Special Edition. The collection also consists of a DVD containing the music videos for “I Don’t Need a Man” and “Touch”.

In an interview previously released, Miss A expressed their hopes of reaching No. 1 on the chart as well as a music program with “Hush”. And if possible, Miss A members promised to do pole dance at an amusement park. Why would they pole dance? Because in the “Hush” music video, Miss A do a sexy dance choreography while spinning and moving seductively on a pole.

The music video starts with a mysterious aura emanating from the sound effect of water droplets and individual shots of the members staring blankly at the camera. The first 25 seconds of the video are a teaser clip of the video that JYP Entertainment had previously released.
