#GDA Artiste Profile: HyunA

Born Kim Hyun-a in 1992, today, she’s better known as HyunA. She’s an idol, singer, songwriter, dancer, rapper, model, and also a member of Cube Entertainment’s girl group, 4Minute.

4Minute consist of five members, Ji-hyun, Ga-yoon, Ji-yoon, HyunA, and So-hyun. They were first introduced to the world when they released their first single, “Hot Issue” in 2009. Since then, 4Minute has released one Korean full-length album, three Korean mini-albums, one Japanese full album, six Japanese singles, and various Korean singles. They’ve also gone on to win a few awards at notable award shows such as the Seoul Music Awards and the Billboard Japan Music Awards.

In 2010, HyunA released her first solo single, “Change”. It debuted high on various online charts and sold 2,469,354 copies. That very same year, she released “Love Parade” and “Outlaw in the Wild” – all of which instantly catapulted her into becoming one of the South Korean music industry’s hottest topics. Her reputation held strong when she finally released her first solo mini album, “Bubble Pop!”. The music video for its title track of the same name, “Bubble Pop!” was flagged for “racy content” due to HyunA’s dance routine and gyrating in the music video but it still became a fast favourite.

By the end of 2011, Cube Entertainment revealed a grand plan for both HyunA and labelmate Hyun-seung (B2ST). The duo became “Trouble Maker” and they went on to release their first mini album. The album consists of a dance track, an emotional ballad, HyunA’s solo, and Hyun-seung’s solo. But the song that got everyone’s attention was its catchy title track, “Trouble Maker”:

On top of that, HyunA is also currently in the running to bag the “Song of The Year” award for “Trouble Maker” at “Samsung GALAXY The 27th Golden Disk Awards in Kuala Lumpur”!
