What Are They Doing Now?
In May 2017, SISTAR released their last album. After releasing, Starship Entertainment revealed that SISTAR was ending their group activities. SISTAR’s members and their label were discussing solo activities for each member.
And, finally, the decision was made. Hyolyn and Soyou continued their careers as solo singers. Meanwhile, Dasom and Bora continued their careers by focusing on acting activities.
About the disbandment, each member wrote a letter. Starting with Dasom, in her letter, she said that there’re a lot of things that she wanted to say, but she was tortured and would be careful with the words she wanted to say. She also thanked the fans who have been settling with SISTAR for the past 7 years.
Bora also revealed in her letter that there were a lot of moments in her mind while she was writing the letter. She said that all of them will always support each other.
Soyou’s letter seems more heartbreaking than the others. She thanked all of the fans and also apologized. No matter what she ends up doing, she said that she will always remember everything she’s been through with SISTAR and promised fans that she would come back with better music in the future.
And, in the last letter from Hyolyn, she said that the fans already gave her more love than she deserves, and she thanked her fans because they gave her strength even though she felt lacking.
Well, no matter what happens, we have to always support all of SISTAR’s members and wish all the best for their careers!
Hyolyn, birth name Kim Hyo-jung, was famously known as the leader and main vocalist in SISTAR and the sub-unit SISTAR19. After SISTAR officially disbanded, Hyolyn still continued her career as a solo singer. No wonder, even when she was still in SISTAR, Hyolyn already made her solo debut.
After the disbandment, she sang for tvN’s Live up to Your Name‘s OST with the song “Always.” She also collaborated with GOT7 for her hit track “Blue Moon.” Hyolyn sang a lot for many OSTs such as “Wind Up Watch” for the drama series Black Knight: The Man Who Guards Me and “Dreamy Love” for the drama Money Flower.
Hyolyn also released a three-part single project. It included “To Do List” as the first single and “Dally” as the second single. And, she made her comeback with the single “Bae.”
