[Gallery] Underrated Artist Spotlight – Younha


With so many idol groups promoting these days, solo artists have a hard time competing for the music charts and shows. It’s funny to think that back in the day, solo artists reigned and idol groups were more of an experiment than anything. For a solo artist to have survived the idol group explosion and maintained a strong reputation as a k-pop vocalist is quite the feat.

Here at Soompi we love Girls’ Generation and Big Bang as much as you do but we also want to appreciate some other equally talented artists who don’t get as much limelight. We want the world to know that there is more to K-Pop than long legs and colorful hair. Artists like Younha, who has made a name for herself as a singer song-writer, represents K-Pop just as much as any idol group.

So here is our tribute to one very talented solo artist with a beautiful voice who is set to make her comeback with her second mini album “Just Listen” soon. We selected some of her best songs, popular videos, and notable interviews to share with you.
