Kriesha Tiu, a contestant of SBS’ now-ended competition show “K-pop Star 6,” is set to debut solo in May, according to her agency Urban Works Entertainment.
The agency said Sunday that Tiu has been preparing for her debut since the program ended. She was a trainee of the agency before appearing in the program. “She has been working hard on her debut album before participating in the program,” said an agency official. “Her debut was delayed due to the program, but we will try our best to make the best of it.”
The exact date of the debut has yet to be revealed.
During the program, the Filipino-American contestant was known for her strong voice and impressive performances. She came in second place with her teammates Kim So-hee and Kim Hye-rim, under a group named KWINS, at the show’s final.
Tiu will participate in the “K-pop STAR & Friends” live concert from June 17 to 18 at Grand Peace Palace of Kyung Hee University, Seoul, with all of the other finalists from “K-pop Star 6.”
The audition program ended its six-year run on April 9 with its sixth winner teenage duo Boyfriend.KPopHerald
