– Biography –

:: Beginning in Fin.k.l ::

She started her career as part of the Korean pop girl groupFin.K.L”, which was very popular in 90s. As the oldest member, she would become the leader of the group. Hyori was discovered while taking sticker pictures with her friends and was actually the last to join Fin.K.L., just before their debut in January 1998. Fin.K.L. debuted officially on May 22,1998 with their first single Blue Rain”. It was received quite well. The second release from their first album, To My Boyfriend”, became the first of their multiple number one hits.

Fin K.L. became one of the most popular and successful Korean groups of all-time.

Fin.K.L (핑클) was a K-pop girl group that debuted in 1998. Their name stands for Fine Killing Liberty, and was intended to mean that the group stood against “the oppression of all freedom” (fin means “ending” in French. The group’s name was selected by a poll of young people by the record company before the group’s inception. This is the reason for the lack of clear meaning in Fin.K.L’s English name, for the Korean name (핑클) was selected first. Fin.K.L was one of the most popular girl groups in Korean pop, along with S.E.S.. Fin.K.L won numerous music awards until its unofficial end in 2002, when all of the members pursued solo careers in different areas of entertainment. Although they regrouped for a digital single in 2005, the group has since unofficially disbanded again, as each member has left DSP Entertainment and has signed with different companies. The group reunited last year at Sung yuri’s fanmeeting in March 2008, and at Lee Hyori’s concert December 19th and 20th, with tears of happiness the girls performed 3 songs together again. There is still no news of their reunion, but true fans are still hoping and waiting for Finkl, a group with the most talented singers/actress in Korea right now.
