Soyeon originally rose to prominence through her appearance on the popular Mnet’s reality TV competition Produce 101. In the same year, she also appeared as a contestant on the third season of Unpretty Rapstar, after which she signed an exclusive contract with CUBE. She later debuted as a soloist with the single ‘Jelly’ in 2017.
Aisde from Soyeon, the other members of (G)-IDLE have also been working on solo music. Recently, Chinese-born member Yuqi made her solo debut with the digital single ‘A Page’, which features the songs ‘Giant’ and ‘Bonnie & Clyde’.
In the same month, member Miyeon released a solo song titled ‘You Were My Breath’. The pop ballad, which features a 60-person orchestra, is part of CS Happy Entertainment’s upcoming collaborative album ‘CS Numbers’.
(G)I-DLE released the music video for their new song ‘Last Dance’, which was made in collaboration with fan community app UNIVERSE. However, prior to its release, the track was re-recorded without member Soojin, with the MV also re-edited to minimise her appearance.
