Flashback Friday – “Sexy Divas” Baby V.O.X
Do we have any Soompiers out there who remember dial-up internet and having to listen to this to get to spazz out on that strange thing called the Internet with other fangirls and fanboys? You probably remember Yoo Seung Jun being the original hot bad boy rapper of K-Pop; he was also a Korean-American with rock-hard abs who left South Korea in ignominy (Jay Park wasn’t the first). You probably also remember when Uhm Jung Hwa was the sexiest solo singer on the scene (Hyori had to wait her turn).
With that in mind, “Flashback Friday” will feature artists from days of yore when K-Pop wasn’t so polished but still just as shiny.
Today’s Flashback Friday features Baby V.O.X!

Baby V.O.X – “Killer”
Baby V.O.X initially debuted in 1997 with members Kim E-Z, Lee Hee Jin, Jeong Hyeon Jeon, Cha Yu Mi, and Jeong Shi Un. Their debut album “The Day I Do My Hair” made little impact on the music scene, and the group’s lineup would be changed for its next album.
In 1998, Baby V.O.X released their second album “Ya Ya Ya” and featured members Kim E-Z, Lee Hee Jin, Kang Mi Yeon, Shim Eun Jin, and Lee Ga Yi. The revamped girl group met with a new level of interest from the public.
In 1999, Baby V.O.X released their third album “Come Come Baby” with members Kim E-Z, Lee Hee Jin, Kang Mi Yeon, Shim Eun Jin, and Yoon Eun Hye. The girls had certified hits with title track “Get Up” and single “Killer,” and the public finally identified with its members. Kim E-Z and Shim Eun Jin were known for their sexy images. Lee Hee Jin was known for her sophistication. Kang Mi Yeon was her known for her innocent beauty. Yoon Eun Hye was known for her cuteness.
Baby V.O.X went on to release fourth album “Why” in 2000, fifth album “Boyish Story” in 2001, sixth album “Devotion” in 2003, and seventh album “Ride West” in 2004. The girl group disbanded after the release of their fourth album. Though Baby V.O.X did not necessarily rival the national fervor that S.E.S and Fin.K.L inspired, the group pioneered a sexy, urban, heavily dance and hip-hop flavored concept and sound with an international flair. And, of course, the group gave birth to Hallyu Queen Yoon Eun Hye.
