Meet the Sexy Singer with a Sexier Voice, Hyolyn
Hyorin is a singer-songwriter who was born on December 11, 1990, with Kim Hyo-jung as her birth name. She is best known as a former member and leader of Sistar. Hyorin has loved singing and dancing since her childhood, but as no one was around to help her she started going to auditions on her own. Before she joined Sistar, she auditioned for JYP Entertainment twice and accepted after placing first in it. But, when her debut was set with Secret’s Jieun, EXID’s Hani, and Bestie’s Ulji, the plan was canceled. After that, she left JYP Entertainment and joined Starship Entertainment, where she began her career as Sistar’s member.
While being active as Sistar’s member and leader, she was also being active as a solo by releasing an album titled Love & Hate in 2013. Not only that, she also often contributes by singing for soundtracks for various dramas such as Master’s Sun, My Love from the Star, Uncontrollably Fond, and many others. She also participated in many television shows including I Am a Singer Season 3, Unpretty Rapstar Season 2, Fantastic Duo 2, King of Mask Singer, etc.
Hyorin’s Life After Sistar
After Hyorin left Starship Entertainment and Sistar disbanded, Hyorin decided to create her own agency called Bridge despite receiving many offers from other well-known agencies. According to an inside source from Bridge, Hyorin created her own agency in hopes of making music with diverse creative directors of different fields. Not only that, the name of her agency itself held very deep meaning. In music, the bridge plays an important role in connecting the climax of the song. Just like the bridge, Hyorin wished that her agency could connect her music to the public.
After going solo, Hyorin released a three-part project consisting of three separates singles. The first one is To Do List that was released on February 2018. The second one, Dally, is a song featuring Gray and was released on April 2018. The music video garnered over one million views in less than 24 hours of its release. Her last single of the three-part project is a song titled See Sea. On September 2018, she released another single titled Bae.
Not only releasing singles, she also participated in singing for drama’s soundtrack, such as Wind Up Watch for tvN drama Black Knight: The Man Who Guards Me on December 2017 and Dreamy Love for MBC drama Money Flower on January 2018. She also often has photo shoots with various magazines. She loves to share her photoshoot scene on her official Youtube account, so if you want to watch it, you can see it here!

After building her own agency, Hyorin still maintains a good friendship with her members.

She also said that with the track that she released soon after she left Starship Entertainment, To Do List, she poured her feelings about farewell. Not only about men and women breaking up, but the song can also be interpreted as farewell between her and the members of Sistar.
