Min Do-hee’s Debut with Tiny-G
Dohee debuted as a member of Tiny G with the release of the single “Polaris” in May 2012. At the time of their debut, they were a hot topic as a girl group with an average height of 153 cm. However, as a singer, she did not have much spotlight during her debut era.
Tiny G’s Dohee is one of the members who got a pretty good promotion in this group. A year after debuting, Tiny G’s Dohee was featured in another member J.Min’s work, to be released as a K-drama soundtrack on March 12th, 2014, titled “Mirror Mirror”. They also promoted mainly in Thailand, where Tiny G’s Dohee had a chance to be featured in Thai artist Natthew’s work, and released a subunit single titled “The Only One”.
A few years later, Tiny G seemed to be out of it as they hadn’t made any comebacks or promotions until the group’s official fan page on the GNG website has been removed, which was seen as proof that it was only Dohee who is still featured on the company’s website. Other people and fans assumed that Tiny G were already disbanded at that time.
On April 16th, 2017, Dohee made an appearance in King of Masked Singer as her solo promotion after the group unofficially disbanded.
Min Do-hee’s Solo Activity
Controversy over refusal to promote Tiny G is a hot topic. Ilgan Sports as one of the Korean media stated, “After Dohee debuted as an actress, she practically left her heart from singing. It seems that she has completely abandoned her desire to be active in Tiny G.”
They continued, “Another official also confirmed Dohee’s departure. Everyone here knows that Dohee only wants to act. I know that she is keeping her distance from the Tiny G members as well. After rising as an actress, some people even say that she has changed.”
Tiny G decided to disband the team at first, but Mint and J.Min, the current members of Tiny G, are continuing their activities in Thailand separately, so they did not announce the disbandment to the outside world.
It was her acting appearance, not her singing, that made Dohee’s name known, especially her appearance in the tvN drama Reply 1994, which aired from October 2013. In the play, she took on the role of Jo Yoon-jin, a rich Jeolla dialect, and won the love of viewers. Her romance with Kim Seong-gyun, who was 14 years old at the time, also drew attention.
The controversy is expected to continue as Dohee made the decision after her success in a situation where the contract period with Tiny G’s agency had not expired.
