Daughter of Famous Soccer Player to Debut in New Group Ye.A

Rookie girl group Ye-A has released a jacket image ahead of the group’s forthcoming debut release, a digital single entitled, “Up N Down,” as well as a teaser video for one of its members, Chai.

The eight-member group has already been attracting attention in Korea, not least because one of the girls, Yi Gyer, is the daughter of a famous Korean athlete.

Yi Gyer’s father is Hwang Sun Hong, who played in several World Cups as part of the Korean national team, and currently manages Korean pro soccer club Pohang Steelers.

The group has been assembled by talent agency Kilroy Company, and also includes members: Ka Zoo, Yeo Rin, Do Hye,Ha Dy, Hye-I and Pierre.

A Kiroy Company representative told the media, “The eight members all have their own unique charms. Music fans should expect a lot from their music and performances.”

A teaser video for “Up N Down” will be released on July 15, and the group’s debut album will drop on July 18.
