New solo female artiste alert!
Meng Jia may have left miss A, but JYP Entertainment has confirmed that the group’s other Chinese member, Fei (페이), will be making her solo debut at midnight on 19th July. Her first single will be titled “Fantasy”.
Park Jin Young, the man behind the entertainment powerhouse, took to Instagram to announce the good news with a long and touching message.
In his caption, he wrote:
“Um Jeong Hwa, Park Ji Yoon, Ivy, Sunmi, and now, my 5th muse! When producing a female solo artiste, the most important thing is to reveal her hidden attraction. This artiste, her charm is very rare ’cause she has warmth and sexiness at the same time. Usually girls have one or the other but she has both so the song called #AnythingFantasy will include 2 sides of her.”
Fei, real name Wang Feifei (王霏霏), made her K-Pop debut through miss A, a Korean-Chinese female idol group, in 2010 alongside members Min, Jia, and Suzy. Their debut single, titled “Good Girl, Bad Girl”, won “Song Of The Year” and “Best Dance Performance” at the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) in 2010.
The girls quickly became one of the most popular girl groups in the K-Pop industry thanks to their powerful dances and charismatic performances. Their most recent album, “Colours”, which held their hit title track, “Only You” (다른 남자 말고 너), was released in March 2015.
It will be very interesting to see what Fei has to offer as she is possibly the first Chinese female singer to make a solo debut in the K-Pop industry. As a member of an idol group, she will also be competing with other female idol member-turned-solo singers such as SNSD’s Tiffany and Taeyeon; APINK’s Eunji; f(x)’s Luna and Amber; and former 4Minute member HyunA.
Fei’s debut single “Fantasy” is slated for release on 19th July.
