Badkiz’s Lua’s Career Journey

Badkiz (Hangul: 배드 키즈) is a girl group that debuted under ZOO Entertainment on March 24th, 2014. The group consisted of five members including Monika, Yeon-ji, Eun-joo, Jina, and BomBom. Badkiz, who had just debuted at that time, released their digital single along with a music video titled “Ear Attack.” While promoting and introducing their girl group concept to the public, Badkiz also attended several music shows that were broadcast on TV.

In the same era, Badkiz’s Monica and Jina released a digital single titled “Father” on March 30th, 2014.

Sometime after debut, Eun-joo and Yeun-ji as members of the first generation Badkiz line-up decided to leave the group and immediately the group found new members as a replacement for the two members who had left Badkiz at that time; those are Yoo-min and Hana.

After almost a year of debuting and promoting together as members of Badkiz, the girl group released their second single for their next comeback with the title “Babomba” on November 13th, 2014. Even though they released two songs in the same year, Badkiz was arguably a rookie girl group that was quite active at that time.

It is the work of the famous composer Sinsa-dong Tiger and the new composer Uppercut. Addictive lyrics are added to the repetitive electronic sound. Along with the song, a music video featuring comedians Byeon Ki-soo, Nam Chang-hee, and Song Young-gil was also released. Therefore, “Babomba” is one of the songs that became a hit and popular among comedians in South Korea.

In March 2015, Badkiz announced that one of their members, Yoo-min, decided to leave the group. Even though Yoo-min had just been actively promoting as a member of Badkiz a few months, not up to a year, she decided not to be a member of the girl group. In the end, Badkiz was left with four members who still continued with all their activities and promotions together.

In April 2015, Badkiz attended a sporting event as one of the invited guests, where each participant was an idol from a South Korean girl group or boy group. The event most eagerly awaited by fans was Dream Team and it was broadcast on television.

Not long after Badkiz’s appearance on television and appearing on Dream Team, the girl group again announced that several members had decided to leave and stop all activities and promotions as members of the girl group. The members who left in mid-2015 were Jina, BomBom, and Hana. There was no official statement regarding the reason these members left Badkiz, but reportedly Jina debuted as a solo artist under the new name Jina-U, and BomBom continued her career as a member of the girl group Pit-A-Pat under the name Jain.

As far as Badkiz’s career is concerned, a year into their debut, five members remained, those were Eun-joo, Yeon-ji, Jina, BomBom, and Hana. ZOO Entertainment, as the management label that regulates every promotion schedule of Badkiz, stated that they have found several new members who will soon be active to promote with Badkiz. The new members are LuA, Haneul, and K.Me.

On August 7th, 2015, Badkiz made their comeback with a new member that was previously announced by ZOO Entertainment. Badkiz released their third digital single titled “Come Closer” (Hangul: 이리 와). The concept presented in the music video has a summer theme and the members also show off a sexy choreography there.

“Come Closer” is a song made by previously-acclaimed music producers Shinsadong Tiger and Uppercut, which has an impressive addictive rhythm peculiar to Badkiz, adds sensual lyrics that tempt men to an electronic melody line with hip-hop. In addition, on this comeback, the members were seen exuding their sexy aura and charisma with the concept of a beach and wearing bikinis in the “Come Closer” music video.

In 2016, Badkiz announced that one of their members, Haneul, who had just recently joined and promoted with the group a year, decided to leave Badkiz after the release of “Come Closer” as their comeback single. Badkiz immediately got two new members to replace these members, namely So-min and U-Si. The audition that recruited several new members for Badkiz finally found five people who will be announced soon as Badkiz’s new member line-up.

On August 15th, 2016, Badkiz released a single for their comeback that year titled “Hothae” (Hangul: 핫해). Two days after the song was released, Badkiz held a showcase located in Nonhyeon-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul. The five members of Badkiz: Monica, Kimi, Lua, U-Si, and Somin attended the showcase to promote their fourth digital single, “Hothae,” at the comeback showcase.

Badkiz’s fourth digital single, “Hothae,” is a trendy dance song that combines electronic sound based on hip-hop. In addition, the existing members Monica, K.Me, and Lua, Somin, and U-Si, joined the group and reorganized into a five-member group, enhancing the completeness of the song.

On that day, Monica said, “As I come back in one year, I get more nervous. I have a goal to show you the colors of Badkiz this summer. I have the confidence to show you a more grown image.” Lua said, “It’s a song with a brass sound. That part is a part in common with other songs. What’s different from the songs released so far is that there haven’t been many parts to show the talented part, but it’s a song that highlights a lot of the vocal part of ‘Hothae’.”

In addition, the newly-joined members U-Si and Somin said, “There was no burden at all. Everyone has a soft heart and is really kind. Thanks to the members, I was able to adapt quickly.”

“The friends who left the team also had personal circumstances. We, who are the current Badkiz members right now, are friends with a great passion for singers. However, when I look back as a team leader, I think that all the members lack such passion.” In addition, she replied honestly, saying, “I think this album is the beginning of Badkiz because K.Me and Lua have been well-positioned.”

Finally, the members said, “As an artist, I want you to look at us pretty.” In addition, the newly-joined members also added, “I will work hard so that the colors of Badkiz can be well immersed in it.”

On November 2nd, 2016, Badkiz returned with the release of a song as their comeback at that time. However, this was not a new song but a remake of their debut song, “Ear Attack,” which was titled “Ear Attack 2.” Even though the song was a remake, Badkiz still had the opportunity to promote this song on a music program broadcast on TV.

“Ear Attack 2,” which was loved a lot, is a song with a sophisticated lead line and a strong sense of beat as the media production Atomic Culture was in charge of the entire production. Through this activity, Badkiz succeeded in establishing themselves as a hot trend by being loved for more straightforward and pleasant lyrics and sensible stage manners.

After promoting “Ear Attack 2,” Badkiz again announced that one of the members had decided to leave the group; this time it was LuA. Then, there was a new member who was ready to replace her position, that was Duna.
