Let’s Get to Know More About The Ark

The Ark was a South Korean girl-band under Music K Entertainment, that debuted in April, 2015, and consisted of five members; Minju, as the group leader, Yuna, as the main rapper, Yujin, as the main vocalist, Halla, as the lead dancer as well as the group visual, and Jane as the main rapper as well as the maknae in the group.

The name “The Ark” comes from Joan of Arc, a French saint and hero. That’s why, unlike other girl-bands that look girly, cute, and feminine, The Ark looked very tomboyish. They also had a group logo in the form of a shield with five weapons. Each weapon depicted the personality of each member.
