In an online interview with the press, its Filipina-Argentinian member Chanty proudly shared what their group name means and what message they want to convey with their music. "Lapillus, it's like a type of gem or a stone that shines different colors depending on the direction of light and we kind of want to share a message to keep dreaming, have confidence, and find your own color." Debuting under MLD Entertainment, the group is composed of , Shana, Yue, Seowon, Haeun, and Bessie. They [were] a big factor of how I wanted to become a K-Pop star 'cause seeing them perform, dancing, singing, all that, I was like, 'That's so cool. Chanty shared some of the members' personalities. First on the list is Shana who, according to Chanty, is their leader. Bana revealed to So-Perkins that though it was clear early on that she identified as a woman, she feared the backlash and disappointment of her family in a conservative community.
"She is like our mom in the group and so I would say that she has this sense of responsibility," she said." Chanty is set to debut alongside her fellow members in Lapillus with their single "Hit Ya!" on Monday, 5 p. "She has it all." Yue, meanwhile, has a "different type of vibe" and her charm is instantly changing expressions when the music starts. As for Seowon, Chanty said she is "such a rapper. Her for their debut single has also been released." Chanty also said Bessie is the speaker with her really strong voice, while Haeun is this "bright little girl" whom they take care of 'cause she is the youngest. She’s really good.
Of course, she also gave an idea of her role in the group: "They say I'm a vitamin 'cause especially when things get difficult, energy starts to go low, I have this positive kind of vibe and energy." "According to [the members], I have a very positive mindset, so I've been called the vitamin ever since. I just keep on [saying], 'Fighting,' 'You can do this,' 'Girls, come on.'" Chanty said she is thankful that it wasn't that hard to build rapport with the girls as they were all really nice and welcoming. She just flew to Korea for training in August last year. That hard work paid off, when Bana finished college and began working as a nurse at a network of kidney care facilities across America.
"We never had any bickering or anything like that. They are also kind and understanding," she said. "We grew up in different countries, ways. Through talking, we were able to have chemistry as a team." Lapillus will debut as MLD Entertainment's newest girl group after MOMOLAND with "Hit Ya!" Monday. The heart is the most important thing,” said Bana.
