GLAM (글램)


GLAM (Girls Be Ambitious) is a 4-member girl group from South Korea, under Big Hit Entertainment. Formerly a 5-membered group, the fifth member, Trinity, left due to personal reasons. The current members are Zinni (Jinhee), Jiyeon, Dahee, and Miso. Their debut single, "Party (XXO)" was released on July 16, 2012.

(In my opinion, these girls should get so much more recognition than they do now. They're so extremely underrated that it disappoints me. They're really talented -- they can dance, sing, and rap. Their live performances are not lip syncing and they nail them, too! Zinni can breakdance (the first B-Girl I've seen in K-Pop, really ^_^) and she can rap, too, same with Jiyeon. Miso and Dahee have beautiful voices, and I'm hoping they'll release a ballad song in the future!)

  • On SBS Strong Heart, Sooyoung confessed about an incident involving a toilet. Her whole family was in a Seoul subway stop when some fans took notice of her. Sooyoung who wasn't all decked out in her stage apparel and makeup, ran into the bathroom to hide (she was afraid someone would write that she doesn't look that good in person). The two fans were knocking on the door but Sooyoung kept on insisting that she is not SNSD's Sooyoung and that they've got the wrong person. As they were losing hope, suddenly Sooyoung's mother yelled "CHOI SOOYOUNG! HURRY UP AND COME OUT!" (LOL). Of course, with her identity confirmed, no fan would just leave. Sooyoung said, "They slipped a piece of paper under the stall door and I just took it and quickly signed it. They eventually went away and I was finally able to get out of the bathroom!"
