Former (G)I-DLE member Soojin: once being called “the next” HyunA, now getting the same ending as HyunA

Once called "new generation HyunA", now Soojin also ends up being kicked out by CUBE just like her senior.

On the afternoon of March 5, CUBE announced the termination of the exclusive contract with Soojin (former (G)I-DLE member).  Although once staunchly defending Soojin with many tough statements, even suing against the victim to prove her innocence, CUBE finally chose to end the relationship with the female idol with a brief message: “We respect the police’s investigation results”. 

Thus, Soojin not only leaves (G)I-DLE but is also in danger of completely disappearing from the entertainment industry after being kicked out by CUBE.  And fans can’t continue to defend Soojin, but anyone can feel sorry for her career, which should have been more brilliant.  Despite shining for only 3 years, Soojin really left many indelible marks on the music industry.


A beautiful and talented idol

Soojin was born on March 9, 1998.  The female idol debuted with (G)I-DLE in May 2018 as the lead dancer, lead vocalist and lead rapper.  Before joining CUBE, few people know that Soojin used to work under the stage name N.NA with the girl group VIVIDIVA (debut in 2015) for a short time.  At that time, she pursued a pure and cute concept, her dancing and singing skills were not really excellent.

However, by the time she became a part of (G)I-DLE, Soojin was completely perfect in both talent and beauty.  The female idol has a beautiful face, slim but sexy body.  In addition, she is also the main dancer.  She often impresses the audience with her flexible, sexy movements and extremely attractive expressions on stage.

Netizens used to give a lot of praise for Soojin’s special charm.  Although her technique is not equal to her colleagues, her charisma is the key to helping her be on par with other famous female dancers of Kpop such as Lisa (BLACKPINK), Momo (TWICE) or Yeji (ITZY) in many charts.

The journey to become a “new generation sexy queen”

Before the bullying controversy broke out, Soojin was said to be HyunA’s successor and would soon become a “new generation sexy queen”. On (G)I-DLE’s stages, Soojin at that time always stood out thanks to her eyes and gestures that always exuded a sexy aura.

Soojin is CUBE’s new hope after losing HyunA?

When rookie (G)I-DLE covered 4minute’s hit song “Hot Issue”, Soojin immediately caused a stir thanks to a very sexy and hot performance. When participating in Queendom, she also outperformed everyone to take the spotlight thanks to the eye-catching sexy Senorita stage. Soojin’s moment of “swiping lipstick” when performing Put It Straight (Nightmare version) also became a legend.

In addition to being called “the next HyunA”, Soojin is also considered a 4th generation “fancam queen”. As of mid-2021, Soojin has owned 20 fancams with over 1 million views. Compared to other members, the video recording the female idol’s performance always attracts viewers, and Soojin’s popularity also clearly overwhelmed her bandmates.

The scandal that ruined her career

In the midst of his personal career being sublimated and when (G)I-DLE also made great strides after joining Queendom, Soojin was suddenly accused of bullying her classmates when she was in high school. 2. Specifically, the female idol was exposed that she used to smoke, drink, steal money, skip school, hang out with bullies, even use physical violence against friends and slander actress Seo Shin Ae.

This controversy lasted for a year with many fights back and forth between Soojin and many old classmates. The former (G)I-DLE member later admitted to smoking and dressing inappropriately for her age, but denied the accusations of school violence and bullying Seo Shin Ae. CUBE also resolutely defended her to the end, even suing against the victim and always kept quiet when the public asked the company to expel Soojin from (G)I-DLE. However, 6 months later, the media reported that Soojin was no longer a part of (G)I-DLE, and another 6 months, Soojin was officially no longer an artist of CUBE. The ending is so strangely similar to HyunA!

In the end, she had to left (G)I-DLE, and then CUBE

It can be seen that this outcome does not surprise netizens, but causes a lot of regret because it is clear that Soojin has enough potential to become the top idol of Gen 4. Perhaps even fans will find it difficult to forgive female idols. That is the end of the career of a famous new generation sexy icon. Perhaps Kpop fans will have the opportunity to meet her someday in the future, but definitely not right now.

Does Soojin still have a chance to re-debut as a Kpop idol?
