In an interview with OSEN News, Yenny admitted, “While I was writing the album I fought with J.Y. Park so much. The album was like World War III.”
Yenny continued, “Even selecting the single was like war. I really liked the third track, ‘Ain’t Nobody,’ but the fourth track, ‘Bond,’ is the only sexy track on the album. Obviously, J.Y. Park recommended [‘Bond’] as the title track for the album. He claimed that, ‘This sort of sexiness is that of a dimension that only you can show.'”
Yenny further explained, “I absolutely never thought of HA:TFELT’s sexy concept as a bad thing. However, going with the sexy concept theme, I suffered through the composition of two songs. It seemed like in my previous music I wasn’t really expressing myself, so this time I pushed as far as I could.”
Yenny also admitted that J.Y. Park wrote her an 11-page letter explaining why she should change a few songs around and structure the album a certain way.
“It was also a war over the jacket cover,” explained Yenny, who continued, “the name of the project was the last war. J.Y. Park thought it should just be ‘Ye-eun’ and he tried to persuade me by saying ‘people will hate this name.'”
Yenny continued, “However, I was determined to use HA:TFELT as my writing/producing name, rather than Wonder Girls Yenny. I don’t have any regrets about that decision.”
According to Yenny, HA:TFELT is a combination of the words “hot” and “heartfelt,” so a double meaning is achieved.
