August 28th, 2013, Sunmi released her first so…

August 28th, 2013, Sunmi released her first solo single: 24 Hours

Sunmi (선미), born Lee Sun-mi (이선미) on May 2nd, 1992.
She made her debut in 2007 as a part of the group Wonder Girls. 3 years later JYP Ent. announced that Sunmi would take a break from music to continue studying, but she did not fully leave JYP Ent. In 2013 it was announced that she would have a solo comeback, and not re-joining Wonder Girls. ‘’24 Hours’’ was a very sexy and mature concept, the song was written and produced by J.Y. Park. There was some mild controversy due to costume being very similar to Ga In’s in ‘Irreversible’ and the cover for the single was so similar to Ga In’s ‘Talk About S’ album cover.

Honorable Mentions:
2009 4Minute (포미닛)For Muzik
        Their first EP, with the single: ‘‘Muzik’‘
2012 Kim So-Jung (김소정)Blap
        A single release for: ‘‘BLAP’‘
2013 Spica (스피카) Tonight
        A single release for: ‘‘Tonight’‘ 
2013 – Yaya (야야(夜夜)) – Cruel Picture
        Her second album with the single: ‘‘Ghost’‘ 
2014 Laboum (라붐)Petit Macaron
        Their first single: ‘‘Pit a Pat’‘

I used to be a 4nia before 4Minute disbandment…

I used to be a 4nia before 4Minute disbandment. I liked all members, but now I can’t support anyone but Hyuna. The recent 10th year anniversary was like a slap on her face. I don’t want to support people who can’t be happy for their friend’s success. I understand they felt bitter about unfair treatment by Cube, but why take it out on Hyuna who, ultimately, had no say in her becoming the most popular member? She promoted 4minute wherever she went on her solo schedule and for what? For the rest to become resentful of her? Not saying the other members deserved Cube’s bullshit, but the company can’t push them if there’s nothing to push. They’re not untalented, but the gap in skills between Hyuna and them was too big. Hyuna had a unique rapping style and great charisma; the rest were average at best in their own positions.

June 15, 2009 4Minute released their debut single: Hot Issue

4Minute (포미닛) was a five-member girl group under Cube Entertainment. HyunA was the first member introduced prior to debut, unofficially dubbing them “The HyunA Group” because she was known for being in Wonder Girls. They were well loved for having a girl-crush concept which lead to them having a large female fan-base.
