Juniel

(Choi SuhAh)

Who’s Our WCW?

Our woman crush, Juniel was born on September 3, 1993 as Choi JunHee. Ever since she was young, Juniel had been mesmerized by musicians and art. She learned to play guitar in middle school and wrote her first song when she was sixteen. Juniel’s career could be debated as starting in Japan. She had won the Japanese audition program, “Niji Iro Supernova”, and went on to train in Good Entertainment, until moving to FNC Entertainment. With her extensive experience in Japan, she’s not only released albums in Korea, but also just as much in Japan. Being the first female artist of FNC Entertainment, we can say that Juniel paved the way for the other female generations of FNC artists!

Why We Crush

Let’s go over the long list as timely as we can. Juniel is definitely a multi-talented, strong-willed artist. In a world where cutesy or sexy dance groups prevail, she’s made her spot in the competitive K-Pop arena as a solo singer songwriter. She’s released as much Japanese records as Korean, and she’s won awards in both industries. What’s even more amazing is that Juniel has persevered against being compared to the K-Pop super star of similar style, IU. As Juniel faced criticisms, she proved that she’s a musician of her own with her own hit tracks and simply continuing on her own path. She was sited to have mentioned that as FNC grew with the addition of CN Blue and AOA, she felt the FNC CEO forgot about her. Just before her contract date was off, FNC reps had given her a song on Friday, recorded it on Saturday, filmed the MV on Wednesday and released it within a week. Although she could have had sour feelings towards the company for lacking in attention and support, she put on her signature smile and walked away on good terms. As she left, FNC artists showered her with congratulatory remarks and their goodbyes to their FNC veteran. We think this summarizes just how professional she is!

Where We’ve Seen Her

Juniel’s most famous for her soft, easy-to-listen vocals. We’ve just discussed how Juniel’s been paving her own career through her own style of music. Her most notable hits in Korea were “I Think I’m In love”, “Pretty Boy”, “Sorry” and more. Not only have we seen her on her hit tracks, but she’s also been active as a duet with various musicians! She collaborated with Jung YongHwa of CN Blue in “Fool”, with PHANTOM’s HanHae for “Love You More Than Ever” and as 1/2 of duet group Romantic J with Lee JongHyun of CN Blue for “Love Falls”.

 

 

Where We’ll See Her Next

After leaving FNC Entertainment, fans wondered when we’ll be able to see Juniel again. Well, fans won’t have to wait any longer, because her new single “Pisces” just landed today! Juniel had signed with C9 Entertainment just a few months ago, and has already released her first comeback song. C9 is home to other famous names, such as YounHa, Jung JoonYoung and Cheetah. We can’t wait to see her promotions planned for “Pisces”; and do we expect a C9 artist collab coming around soon? We’ll just have to wait and see! Congrats, Juniel!

YuBin

(Kim YuBin)

Who’s Our WCW?

Our girl crush, YuBin was born on October 4, 1988 in GwangJu, Korea. She’s actually got a bit of an American feel to her, thanks to her brief high school experience in San Jose, California. Before she hit stardom by debuting with the Wonder Girls, YuBin was originally planning on debuting under Five Girls with G.NA, After School’s Uie, Secret’s HyoSung and Spica’s JiWon. When the group disbanded with the closure of Good Entertainment, YuBin was cast as the new member of the Wonder Girls (after HyunA left for health reasons). YuBin seemed to be the lucky charm for the girls, because as the Wonder Girls released “Tell Me” with their new rapper, YuBin, the group had hit record breaking stardom! Ever since, YuBin has been the back bone, eldest unnie, of the Wonder Girls with her Barbie-like visual and a unique rapping tone.

Why We Crush

So we knew that YuBin was seriously gorgeous and one of the most popular girl groups in K-Pop, but when JYP announced that YuBin will be participating in the 2nd season of Mnet’s “Unpretty Rapstar”, the majority of the responses were doubtful to negative. But YuBin didn’t let that phase her. Nope, she came, she did and she slayed. YuBin went on to prove herself as a legitimate rapper in the K-Pop scene by finishing as one of the semi-finalists. She earned the respect of many of the hottest hip hop artists, such as praise from Jay Park and even getting chosen to record a track with The Quiett! Slay, Queen, slay!

Where We’ve Seen Her

 Where have we NOT seen this K-Pop Barbie doll? Well, most recently, YuBin has been taking the scene by storm with her unending love calls from the hottest magazine companies. Those of you who are new to the world of K-Pop may even mistake her for a famous model turned rapper. YuBin has been gracing the covers and pages of the most impressive fashion magazines with legendary pictorials.

Where We’ll See Her Next

 It’s a great time to be a Wonderful, because we’ll be seeing YuBin again in just a short few days! The Wonder Girls are returning with an all new album titled “Why So Lonely”. The album will be officially released on July 5, 2016, along with the new MV. The girls are making their long awaited return as a quartet band. They’ve already been making headlines with the fact that the girls will be promoting a song not written by JYP for the first time in 9 years! The new album will only consist of songs that were written by the girls. Congratulations to YuBin & the Wonder Girls!

TaeYeon

(Kim TaeYeon)

Who’s Our WCW?

Our weekly crush, TaeYeon, was born on March 9, 1989 in JeonJu, South Korea. According to her, she realized that the only talent that she had was singing. We know that’s not true, but it guided our kid leader to where she is now! She was accepted into SM’s training program when she was in middle school. She won first place at a singing contest held by the program, and landed her first contract with SM Entertainment. After officially training under SM Entertainment, she was chosen to debut as the leader of the K-Pop phenomenon that we know as Girls’ Generation (SNSD)!

Why We Crush

Since her breakthrough into the K-Pop industry, TaeYeon has been leaving her mark in the business left and right. Her clear, cut vocals became famous as the main voice of Girls’ Generation, as well as featured on multiple OST tracks of the most popular drama series. So for one thing, we crush hard on TaeYeon’s God-gifted talent of a wonderful voice. Second, TaeYeon has a stellar awards and nomination track. She’s been nominated 15 times at award ceremonies, and won 14 awards. She’s also accumulated 12 music program awards during her short history as a solo artist so far. That’s just listing the ones she won as a solo artist. If we add up the awards that she’s won as SNSD/TaeTiSeo/Featured Artist, the list would be endless! Slay Queen, Slay!

Where We’ve Seen Her

Where haven’t we seen her? We mentioned her stellar accomplishments as a solo artist, and that’s where we believe you’ve seen her most (outside of her work as Girls’ Generations). TaeYeon has worked as the kid leader of Girls’ Generation, a featured member of SM the Ballad, a member of TaeTiSeo, and more; but her brightest private spotlight comes from her works as a solo artist. Her first mini-album “I” saw an amazing success with a total of over 130,000 albums sold. Her single, “Rain”, also saw endless love and appreciation from the public.

 

Where We’ll See Her Next

Fantastic news from our queen kid leader! SM Entertainment just recently surprised the SONEs with news of TaeYeon’s comeback as a solo artist. Her new music called “Why” will be released on June 28, 2016. It’s only been about 4 months since her last promotions, but we can’t be more than ecstatic about the news of her return. We’ll be seeing more of her through her special promotions for the album as well as at concert events! Huzzah!

EunJi

(Jeong HyeRim)

Who’s Our WCW?

Our girl crush, EunJi, was born in HaeUnDae, Busan, with the birth name Jeong HyeRim. We know her best as the main vocalist of APink, but to just say she’s a girl group member is blasphemous. EunJi had a dream to let her voice be heard since she was just a little girl. She had participated in multiple singing contests, and have trophies to prove her talent. She had initially planned on pursuing a career as a vocal trainer; however, she was connected to an Plan A Entertainment agent through her co-worker. The agent had told his friend (the co-worker) that they were in the midst of preparing a girl group, but were lacking a main vocalist. With the suggestion of the co-worker, EunJi had auditioned for the part with little expectation. Low and behold, Plan A was mesmerized with her voice, and EunJi debuted as the main vocalist of APink with only 2 month of official training! Her story  doesn’t end there, as she went above and beyond being an idol and shared her talents in a variety of entertainment genres.

Why We Crush

Can we take a moment to seriously go over the powerhouse vocalist known as Jeong EunJi? Just as we expect from a prior vocal trainer-in-training, EunJi has some serious vocal chords that belt out melodies like it’s nobody’s business. She is always named on the top rankings of best girl group idol singers, she’s recorded over 10 solo songs for various OSTs, she’s featured in two main Broadway shows as the lead cast. Must we go on? Just listen to her slay Beyonce’s ‘Listen’ and be blown away for yourself!

 Where We’ve Seen Her

Now we get into EunJi’s other secret talent: acting. We’ve mentioned that EunJi had landed main roles in Broadway for her spectacular voice, but it’s not just that. EunJi has also won the hearts of the public with her acting abilities. She first debuted on screen through a nostalgic drama, “Reply 1997”. She and Seo InGuk had such great chemistry that they won over 8 awards together, and she won even more just for herself as well. With her breakout role, she continued on to star in more TV dramas featuring the hottest stars, such as Song HyeGyo and Jo InSung. Her most notable appearance is still 1997, where she portrayed the character of ShiWon so on point. Her cute aegyos and Busan dialect had captivated so many men that she rose to the top of ‘Ideal Girlfriend’ lists in a matter of days! Check out her adorable acting in the videos and see for yourself.

Where We’ll See Her Next

EunJi has recently released a solo album, “Dream” with her title track ‘Hopefully Sky’. Her beautiful voice fills the spring air as we see her gracefully strolling through a street full of cherry blossoms. EunJi certainly doesn’t let us down. Her new solo track is another example of her vocal skills on point. She has been busy performing at radio stations, music shows, and a variety of events. We can’t wait to continue hearing her soft velvety voice. We hope she continues to put out beautiful music both as a solo artist and as a member of APink!
