Eunice, The Underrated Member of Girl-Group DIA!
A shortened form of the word “diamond”, and short for Do It Amazing, DIA, is a South Korean girl-group formed by MBK Entertainment (formerly Core Contents Media) in 2015, originally with six members. Prior to the group’s debut, the lineup was changed and contemplated for a long time, until the label finally settled on seven members in the end; Eunice, Huihyeon, Jenny, Yebin, Eunjin, Chaeyeon and Eunchae. Some years later the group added more members, until stopping when membership reached nine. Back when DIA counted 8 members, Eunice was just a regular member of the group, but after the lineup change, she became the new leader.
Eunice, whose real name is Heo Soo-Yoon, was a part of girl-group Jewelry for a while before debuting in DIA. But, unfortunately, Jewelry disbanded before she could formally debut with them. After being a trainee for five years, she finally made a debut as DIA’s all-rounder member after some time. She is also a part of DIA’s sub-group, called BinChaenHyunSeuS (빈챈현스S). Let’s get to know more about this charming lady!

Eunice’s Plastic Surgery Rumors & Pre-debut Photos
Korea is often referred to as the plastic surgery capital of the world, and cosmetic procedures are so common that even young girls undergo them. Sure, some were gifted with some great genes, but some people, especially South Korean idols who have to maintain a high beauty standard, it’s common for them to have undergone plastic surgery to enhance their visual.
