Singer Jun Young Rok‘s second daughter and T-ara Boram‘s younger sister Wooram is set to debut with the group D-Unit in June.
D-Unit is a 3-member hip hop act under D-Business Entertainment, whose CEO is reported to have spent years preparing to debut the group. They follow a format of two permanent members with one new member who joins for every album. Wooram is reported to have been designated as one of the permanent members.
Another reason that D-Unit is getting a lot of attention lately is because the CEO, Lee Yong Hak, released an album in 2008 under YG Entertainment called ‘Made In R.O.K‘. He was a rapper known as DM in a duo called YMGA alongside member Master Woo. This time around, Lee Yong Hak will be producing a hip hop group instead of performing in one.
He stated, “Wooram has a different musical color than T-ara’s Boram. Wooram has excellent vocal skills and like her parents, is full of talent and punk. Though D-Unit are rookies, we’re confident enough to have them start with a full-length album for promotions,” adding, “D-Unit is planned to debut in June, and July at the latest. The music production is about 95% finished. I want to show a more complete D-Unit to the public.”
Wooram and her sister Boram are not the first in their family to be a part of the entertainment industry as their father is singer Jun Young Rok and his mother is former actress Baek Sul Hee.
Wooram’s vocal training was brought to light in March of 2010 during her mother’s (actress Lee Mi Young) appearance on SBS TV‘s ‘Bae Gi Wan, Choi Young Ah, and Jo Hyung Gi’s Good Morning‘. However, there was no report of what exactly she was preparing for at the time.
