Park Hye-Kyeong (better known by her stage name Soyul) is a South Korean idol rapper, vocalist and dancer. She is best known for being the maknae in K-Pop group from outer space Crayon Pop.
Crayon Pop is unquestionably one of the more unique and excellent groups in K-Pop both for their off-the-beaten-path singles and the group’s look which was specifically chosen to be less K-Pop supermodel and decidedly more, well, “normal”.
Hwang Hyun-chang, the chief executive of Chrome Entertainment, Crayon Pop’s agency, said the group’s birth started from a simple question: “Why are all girl groups the same?” And the team’s image was carefully planned starting from the audition process.
“I eliminated the candidates who were taller than 165 cm or had sexy images. I also excluded high school students even though they sing well,” he said in an interview with Chosun Ilbo.
“I wanted to make a group that has the image of ordinary girls living in the neighborhood who we cannot hate,” Hwang said.
To which I say, dude was mostly successful. Crayon Pop stands out and they are a wonderful special snowflake in a genre of impossibly pretty faces. Ordinary though? Nah. As long as Soyul is a part of the group, Crayon Pop’s image will be anything but ordinary.
Not only is she a talented dancer and singer, Soyul will also wreck your shit.
R.I.P. Subin. You never had a chance.
However, to be fair to the Dal Shabet star, no one does. This is Soyul’s world. Bow down to your queen.
Soyul is so amazing that her exploits manage to wow the omniscient and the omnipotent.
Soyul’s star power could knockout Superman.
Soyul’s beauty is so sensational that it can be felt from across the globe.
There is bright, there is brilliant and then there is Soyul.
Soyul’s cuteness is more lethal than a hive of killer bees.
