Son Dam-bi (손담비)

This entry is dedicated to One Big Hallyu Fan - you know who you are. How’s the weather like in Singapore? ;-)

A K-popped! friend mentioned Son Dam-bi so I just had to check her out...and I’m glad I did!

Finally, a Korean beauty who doesn't rely on her sex appeal to gain attention but one who is a bona fide dancer!

Dam-bi, who has been dubbed the female version of Rain (they even share the name 비), doesn't need to push her tush out, put on a dominatrix costume or squeeze into ultra-tight, teeny weeny tops (or shorts) to get our attention. No siree, not when the 24-year-old dances like a dream!

Dam-bi, who used to appear in other stars' music videos made heads turn when she busted a move opposite Poppin' Hyun-joon in an MP3 player commercial.

The hype that was generated from the commercial even lead to a pre-debut documentary for MSN Japan. The documentary chronicles the singer/dancer’s journey leading up to her debut in June 2007.

It is reported that Dam-bi trained with a well-known American choreographer (it didn't say who) to prepare for her debut. Her first single is a hip hop dance number entitled Cry Eye. It’s pretty good, hit the link to watch it.

What's "krumping"?

I didn't know she only debuted in June 2007. That's pretty recent!

Serene, you're most welcome :-) I enjoyed reading up on Dam-bi.

Hey! If you say Son Dam-bi's name without the surname, it sounds as if you are scolding Bi! ;-) hahahahaha...
