When she was 7, HyunA tried 50 auditions to become an actress but failed all of them. She grew an interest in dance when she went to high school. Soon after, she passed an audition for JYP Entertainment on the first try and was revealed as the main rapper of WONDER GIRLS in 2006. She debuted at age 14, and during that time, she participated in the group’s television show MTV Wonder Girls for two seasons, on the first mini-album The Wonder Begins, and even co-hosted Show! Music Core with Sohee (Former Wonder Girls) and Brian Joo (Fly to the Sky).
But, unfortunately, due to her parents’ concern about her health, particularly chronic gastroenteritis and fainting spells, she had to leave and was removed by her parents from Wonder Girls in 2007. However, she didn’t want to give up being a singer and joined Cube Entertainment the next year after her forced leave from Wonder Girls.
HyunA as the Center of 4MINUTE

In May 2009, it was announced that she would debut as part of the girl group 4MINUTE as the main rapper, main dancer, and even the main visual. HyunA along with the other 4 girls (Jihyun, Gayoon, Jiyoon, and Sohyun) officially debuted in June 2009 with their first single “Hot Issue” and became a hot topic for their unique concept. The group received huge popularity with their following various concepts until they finally got the nickname ‘The Strong Unnies’ with their hit song “Crazy”.
But, over time, some fans noticed that 4MINUTE’s music videos focused more and more on HyunA due in large part to her charisma and provocative style, which caused the group’s disbandment in 2016. It was announced by the agency that the group would disband following their contract expiration with only HyunA renewing her contract with the management agency. Because of the sudden disbandment, fans speculated that the other four felt betrayed by HyunA or that there was some kind of discord within the group.
It was also reported that the other former members held a reunion without her and shocked fans with the fact that they had unfollowed HyunA. However, later, fans discovered that it was actually HyunA who first started unfollowing the other members, prompting them to respond by unfollowing her as well. In addition to the drama between the members, fans were also angered by HyunA’s activity in 4MINUTE’s fan cafe. Pointing out that HyunA hadn’t posted in the fan cafe since 2009, many were surprised to see her make a post after the group’s official disbandment.
Well, it does look they’re not on good terms, but who knows? Let’s just all keep hoping the best for all the members even though they already went their separate ways. Check out their best and most viewed music video “Crazy”!
