Jung Whee In (better known by her stage name Wheein) is a South Korean idol singer and dancer. She is best known for being a member recent Waifu Wednesday queens Mamamoo.
With Wheein, this is the first time that Waifu Wednesday has ever done an entire group back-to-back-to-back-to-back. It is also the fastest that this happy little series has ever gone through a group before (not even my beloved SPICA can say that). And while Mamamoo is worth celebrating as a whole, Wheein definitely deserves some shine. Not the “main” role in anything and not the maknae, Wheein occupies the slightly unenviable role of K-Pop’s equivalent of a middle child. However, in a group of fantastic singers and dancers, Wheein is remarkably well-rounded at both. What she may lack in bombast, Wheein makes up with a delightfully soulful and almost folk-like inflection. She can also dance like nobody’s business. Her strengths as a performer are perfectly captured in this beautiful rendition of “Lay It Down” that WA Entertainment wisely uploaded before Mamamoo’s debut last year.
As one can tell from that, Wheein is also cute as hell and has a smile that is damn near infectious. Without further ado, here’s to ending the Waifu Wednesday Mamamoo hype train on a high note.*
*Any suggestions for next week to check out are appreciated now that Mamamoo is enshrined.

I’ll be on vacation until Monday, so I may post sporadically or not at all until then. Hopefully, I won’t come back to a barren wasteland. Just a head’s up to all of my handfuls of faithful readers out there!
