F-ve Dolls Members Popularity Ranking

F-ve Dolls
http://onehallyu.com

Even though F-ve Dolls has officially parted ways, their individual popularity ranking still can be seen. Ryu Hyoyoung and Jin Hyewon were equally noted as the most famous members during their F-ve Dolls days because Ryu Hyoyoung is known as Ryu Hwayoung’s older twin sister, whereas Jin Hyewon is known as the second or little version of the former member KARA’s Goo Hara. The second place is owned by Heo Chanmi who is never tired of bringing up the fact that she used to be in the original line up of South Korea’s top girl group, Girls’ Generation. On the other hand the third place is occupied by temporary member of F-ve Dolls, Shannon Williams who has debuted as a solo singer, ditching the very idea of debuting as the main vocalist of F-ve Dolls. In addition, the fourth place is owned by Cho Seunghee who joined the girl group DIA right after F-ve Dolls’ split up but made her departure again from her group to permanently become an actress. The fifth place is equally shared by the rest of the members of F-ve Dolls, namely Han Nayeon, Oh Yeonkyung, Lee Soomi, Seo Eunkyo. Lastly, Choi Jihyun who has never even had activities as a member of F-ve Dolls is placed on the last ranking due to the limited information about her which made us assumed that she has long given up as a celebrity in the over-saturated state of Korean entertainment industry.
