What does Yoon Eun Hye, Jung Ryeo Won, and Hwang Jung Eum have in common? These three beautiful women were not in the spotlight during their years as a girl group member, but by declaring independence, they successfully established themselves as lead actresses.
Jung Ryeo Won, a previous Chakra member, was overshadowed by more popular members. After going solo, Ryeo Won steadily climbed the ladder by appearing on a number of dramas. Her ability to act outshone her past as a girl group member. Her work on “Hello, Franceska,” “Ja Myoung Go,” “Two Faced Girlfriend” and “Castaway on the Moon” did not get much media attention, but her recent work on “Salaryman Cho Han Ji” and “Never Ending Story” surely removed her label as singer-turned-actress.
Yoon Eun Hye also was a member of Baby V.O.X. Yoon Eun Hye was not popular because she was on the chubbier side, unlike other members of the group. After announcing her independence and seizing the lead role in the drama “Goong,” she slowly made a reputation. Her role in “The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince” instantly let her join stardom.
Finally, Sugar member Hwang Jung Eum was always overshadowed by fellow member, Ayumi. She, too, pioneered a new career by choosing dramas like “Giant,” “High Kick Through the Roof,” and “Can You Hear My Heart.”
Many overshadowed singing group members are challenging themselves to establish their name. These individuals need a round of applause rather than messages of disapproval! Who do you like the most among the three?
