Luna made her first televised appearance on SBS’s “Truth Game” in 2006. After her appearance as the “Wave Girl”, she was cast by SM Entertainment and began her idol training.

Why We Crush

We know that Luna’s got a powerful voice, but did you know that Luna lacked vocal confidence back in her early years? Luna had always been complimented for her dancing skills, but her vocal talent was recognized later on in her career path. During her early debut years, Luna was always striving to improve her vocal abilities, but came along to harsh criticisms. During an episode of MBC’s “Enjoy Today”, Luna’s performance was met by harsh criticisms by the judge panel consisting of some of the greatest Korean artists. They criticized Luna for “lacking a sense of understanding of music.” Although Luna had burst into tears by their words, but she grit her teeth and determined to become a legendary singer who can move the audience through her voice. And she did just that! Most recently, Luna competed in MBC’s “King of Masked Singer” and was crowned the king for 1st and 2nd generations. Through the program, Luna became a household name when it came to powerhouse vocalists in K-Pop. Luna knew what she wanted and she climbed mountains after mountains to prove her worth!

Where We’ve Seen Her

We’ve seen her plenty of times as the main vocalist of f(x), but Luna shined the brightest during her recent promotions as a solo artist. Luna released her 1st solo mini-album, “Free Somebody” only a month ago. Her album contained tracks of her own compositions and fully expressed Luna as herself, than Luna of f(x). With beautiful choreography, modern pop concepts and her God-sent voice, “Free Somebody” was an EDM hit for the summer of 2016. We don’t doubt that we’ll be seeing a continuation of the solo Luna soon!

 

Where We’ll See Her Next

Although it may be a while before Luna’s next album, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t be able to hear our Queen! Luna is continually busy with scheduled activities for the rest of 2016 from variety show appearances, musicals and concerts. Currently, Luna is busy running with the SM Town crew in their SMTOWN LIVE concerts all throughout the world, and will soon set sail to Hawaii to enjoy a company-wide vacation (courtesy of Father SM, himself!). With so much more Luna on the way, we can’t wait to see what she’s got up her sleeve next!

HyunA

(Kim HyunA)

Who’s Our WCW?

Kim HyunA was born on June 6, 1992 in Seoul, where she grew up for all of her life. HyunA had always been a fan of dancing, which led her to join JYP Entertainment at such a young age. In 2007, she made her first debut as the rapper of Wonder Girls. Only after about 5 months of activities, her parents pulled HyunA out of the group over her health concerns. She had continued as a regular student until she was transferred to Cube Entertainment, where she eventually debuted as the main rapper of 4Minute (up until their disbandment in June 2016). Ever since, HyunA has made herself a house-hold name through promotional activities as a singer. She has since been dubbed as the next generation Lee HyoRi, the 1st generation sexy queen of K-Pop. Holding true to her title, HyunA continues to wow her audience of both genders with her ever glowing sexiness.

Why We Crush

We know that HyunA’s achievements in the K-Pop scene is extensive and quite the impressive lineup. However, we’ll talk more about that later. Besides the sexy queen image that she showcases on stage, off stage, HyunA has such an inspirational free spirit. In such a collectivist society, where standards are expected to be upheld, HyunA lives her life to the beat of her own drums. She’s always been such an expressive person through her various tattoos and her way of lifestyle. Especially so, HyunA’s always been a name that could be found in the most exclusive invitation lists. Most recently, HyunA has caused an upstorm around the globe for her ethereal presence at the Paris fashion shows. From Korea to around the globe, our queen does what she loves and she makes it look effortless!

Where We’ve Seen Her

As mentioned before, HyunA’s influence in the K-Pop scene is impeccable. Besides the obvious of her successes as a 4Minute member, HyunA has also found her own success as just HyunA Kim. Throughout a series of delicious sexy solo tracks, HyunA has become the fantasy girl to so many Korean men, as well as girl crushes to Korean women. Along with her group success and solo success, she’s also been seen in the main spotlight through her unforgettable collaborations with K-Pop’s most famous artists. To begin, she’s 1/2 of the duo called Trouble Maker with former BEAST member, Jang HyunSeung. They’ve definitely left some fans in awkward situations with their parents while watching Trouble Maker’s seductive performances. Her most notable collaboration has to have been with the 2012 epidemic called, “Gangnam Style”. Her feature on Psy‘s world famous video sky rocketed her name all over her name. With so many hot collaboration tracks, we can’t wait to see who she’ll rock the house with next!

Where We’ll See Her Next

HyunA’s next work is coming a lot sooner than we expected, an we can’t thank Cube Entertainment enough! With 4Minute’s disbandment last month, Cube Entertainment revealed that HyunA will be making her solo comeback sometime this summer. However, that news was soon turned more rumor when reports revealed that Cube Entertainment was suffering from internal conflicts. However, Cube Entertainment put rumors of her comeback delay to rest by revealing the official comeback date of our sexy queen! HyunA will be dropping her new solo track on August 1st! In a recent interview with Dazed, HyunA expressed how she knows that she will lack more with her 4Minute members gone, but she hopes that her extensive practice and preparation will shine through to her fans. Good luck and congrats to our queen, HyunA!

Fei

(Wang FeiFei)

Who’s Our WCW?

Fei was born on April 27, 1987 in Haikou, Hainan, China. Her full Chinese name is Wang Feifei. She’s currently one of the well known Chinese stars in Korea, but before all that fame, she was just a student training with her member Jia. Fei had first appeared on Zhejiang TV’s dance audition program, then continued on to join a JYP trainee group dubbed “The Chinese Wonder Girls” However, plans changed when HyeLim went on to join Wonder Girls and Fei was added to a project group called miss A with Jia. She finally debuted as 1/4 of miss A in 2010. The group went on to nab 1st place on music shows, even as recently-debuted-rookie-group, with their mega-hit “Bad Girl, Good Girl”!

Why We Crush

Besides the fact that she’s seriously so beautiful, Fei’s will power and work ethic is totally envious. Fei has always had a work ethic of if you start something, you finish it. But she doesn’t just finish it, she masters it! She’s always challenging herself to be the better person than she was yesterday. Just think about the fact that she left her home country to fulfill her dreams in a country where she doesn’t even speak the language well. From the very beginning, our girl crush of the week has been challenging herself. She’s fulfilled the title of one of the best Korean speaking foreign idol, one of the top K-Pop groups, one of the best dancer of the K-Pop scene, one of the best cooks among the Korean celebrities and has now decided to try her hands on knitting. Seriously, this girl is an energizer bunny without a thought of stopping. Love you, girl!

Where We’ve Seen Her

 We best know her as Fei of miss A, but it wasn’t until just a few years ago when we realized Fei has so many sides to her. She appeared on “Dancing With the Stars 3” and won 1st place at the overall ranking. We knew that she was a talented dancer, but we were all mind blown when she would take the stage each week and nail out another spectacular performance. As the best celebrity dancer, she was given a special stage on KBS Song Festival to wow us once more with a beautiful dance with 2PM’s ChanSung. She continued on in that same year to “MasterChef Korea Celebrity” to place overall 2nd. Through the win, she was continuously invited to cooking shows as a judge, a cook and a special guest.

Where We’ll See Her Next

JYPE had just recently released fantastic news for Say As and FEIthfuls! Fei’s long awaited solo comeback has been set and its first teaser just dropped a day ago. JYP had tweeted the teaser, saying that Fei is his 5th muse. He farther continued on saying how the song was written with Fei’s unique sexiness in mind. He captioned, “When producing a female solo artist the most important thing is to reveal her hidden attraction…” and continued on to site tat “her charm is very rare [because] she has the warmth and the sexiness at the same time. Usually girls have one or th other, but she has both…” The upcoming track is titled “#AnythingFantasy, and is set to drop on July 19th at 0:00 AM!

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.

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!
