Sunny Hill’s Geonhee’s Pre-Debut Story
Geonhee had a career in a three-member group named Purfles. Purfles showed a powerful performance in their debut song titled “1, 2, 3.” Still, they tried to show stable singing skills. Geon-hee said, “Since we originally started as a female vocal group, our number one strength is singing.” Purfles defined themselves as “half an idol group, half a vocal group.”
The three of them came from the same vocal academy and were united under the name of Purfles. Geonhee was a trainee for between 3-5 years. She also appeared in IU and Sunny Hill’s music videos when she was a trainee at Loen Entertainment in the past and was unusually selected for her dancing skills for a vocal group.
Geon-hee of the three-member girl group Purfles was elected through online votes. She was twenty-five years old when she started her career as an idol group member. “I am in charge of the performance with the vocals,” Geon-hee said with a smile, “I first said that I wanted to be a leader, but anyway, I was elected by voting.”
Geon-hee is from Ichon-dong, eastern Yongsan-gu, Seoul. She graduated from elementary school to high school in that city. Her first trainee life started with LOEN Entertainment as a trainee, and she had outstanding looks and dance skills. She also appeared in the music video of Hyeni who was a senior in her agency during her debut era as a Purfles member.
Her dream of becoming a singer started when she was in elementary school. Geonhee fell in love with S.E.S and performed at various talent show contests with her dancing skills. Geon-hee’s mother already knew how difficult it is to be active in the entertainment industry because she had experience in commercials. So, although her mother was opposed to her dream, she carried out her will with a firm will. Geeon-hee, who has both talent and a hobby, has a special taste for indie music.
After Purfles disbanded, she worked part-time at a café and as a concert and exhibition planner.
Geonhee’s Debut With Sunny Hill
According to Sunny Hill’s Bitna, she said that she remembered her as a friend who worked hard since she was a trainee. Bitna then suggested Geonhee join Sunny Hill with memories of that time, but she said she refused at first.
Starting in 2019, she joined as a member of Sunny Hill which had a vacant seat in response to the members’ resignations. Geonhee took over the position of Mi-sung and took charge of rapping, and there are many reviews that she was very similar to Mi-sung in various aspects such as appearance and atmosphere.
Also, she never arrived late, and she always went to the practice room an hour earlier than the members. There is a story that the older sisters were stimulated by their politeness and hard work.

“We give our sincere support for the future members of Sunny Hill who have become part of the Loen Entertainment family. Please give support for Sunny Hill members’ new beginnings,” said Loen Entertainment.
In 2007, Sunny Hill debuted as a mixed group with 3 members. Then, in 2011, it promoted as a mixed group with 5 members. But, in 2014, this group turned into a girl group with 4 members and scored several hit songs such as filling the OST of the K-drama The Greatest Love and others.
