Bae Woo-hee is an Idol who was born on November 21st, 1991, in Busan, South Korea. Famous as a member of Dal Shabet, Bae Woo-hee was actually a trainee of the now-defunct entertainment agency Medialine Entertainment, where she was slated to debut within the five-member girl group Viva Girls. The project was terminated in early 2011 due to financial difficulties within the agency.

Following her leave from Medialine Entertainment, Bae became a trainee under Happy Face Entertainment and debuted with Dal Shabet replacing Viki who officially left in May 2012.

Dal Shabet released their debut music video, “Supa Dupa Diva,” on January 3rd, 2011, making them the first idol group to debut in 2011. Promotions for “Supa Diva Diva” began on January 6th, 2011, on M! Countdown. The song proved to be quite successful as it topped many real-time and music station charts for the majority of its promotional period. “Supa Dupa Diva” was later voted upon by various celebrities in a survey as the second most addictive song of 2011, as well as having the second most popular choreography.

On May 22nd, 2012, it was confirmed that the group would be releasing their first studio album, BANG BANG, and it will be released on June 22nd, 2012, along with the music video for its title track. On June 1st, 2012, an introduction as the new member teaser featuring Woohee dancing to Beyoncé’s “Freakum Dress” was released.

On June 20th, 2013, Bae Woo-hee wrote and composed the song “Maybe,” a track from Dal Shabet’s sixth extended play, Be Ambitious. She even collaborated with the band Every Single Day to release the track “Nap,” which was included on the band’s extended play Sky Bridge. The track was released on August 27th, 2013, along with an accompanying music video, which Bae also appeared in.

In 2013, Bae Woo-hee made her acting debut in the SNS drama Infinite Power, where she played the recurring character Han Su-ja. She also contributed her voice to the drama’s soundtrack, which is also her first solo track, “Towards Tomorrow.”

A year after, in 2014, Bae Woo-hee was announced of making a big-screen debut through a cameo in the 3D horror movie Tunnel 3D. Bae Woo-hee returned to the soundtrack for MBC’s weekend drama, Jang Bo-ri is Here! The soundtrack was released on April 29th, 2014, titled “Hello My Love.”

In October 2014, bad news emerged, Woohee was hospitalized and underwent surgery for a collapsed lung. She has reportedly received surgery for the same condition in the past and took a break from group activities to focus on recovering and in mid-2015, Bae Woo-hee again starred in the SBS drama titled The Time We Were Not in Love playing a supporting character.

On December 8th, 2015, Happy Face Entertainment announced that Jiyul and Kaeun left the group after their contracts expired. A day later, Happy Face Entertainment also confirmed that Dal Shabet will be coming back with the release of their ninth mini-album, Naturalness, as a 4-member group to celebrate their 5th anniversary on January 5th, 2016. Bae Woo-hee also released her second solo track, “Love Hurts” in Dal Shabet’s ninth extended play, Naturalness.

In 2017, Bae Woo-hee along with another Dal Shabet member Serri, again challenged themselves to attend the survival show held by KBS2, The Unit: Idol Rebooting Project. The show is aiming to give them a fair chance to show their talents that they may not have been able to showcase before. The concept of the show is to form male and female unit groups of nine members each, among idols who had already debuted. Through this survival show, Bae Woo-hee made it to the debut line as the 7th member and debuted as a member of UNI.T on May 18th, 2018.

On December 5th, 2018, it was reported that Woohee’s contract with HappyFace had expired and there was no announcement officially regarding whether Dal Shabet was disbanded or not.

In August 2019, Serri stated in an interview for BNT, “Even though Dal Shabet isn’t promoting, we haven’t disbanded.” She also confirmed the rumors about the group’s reunion and shared the news about the preparation of a photo exhibition dedicated to Dal Shabet and a special concert where all six members including the ones who left would get together to give a performance. Jiyul and Kaeun also announced their participation as well thus confirming that they had rejoined the group.
