Kyung Ho Kim, April 18, 2017, 8:35 a.m.
Former 2NE1 member Minzy is being featured in the current issue of the fashion publication Star1. Gong Min Ji, better known by her stage name Minzy, is a South Korean singer and dancer. She is a former member of South Korean girl group 2NE1, leaving the group and the group's agency in April 2016.
Minzy was born in Seoul, South Korea on January 18, 1994. She is granddaughter of folk dancer Gong Ok-jin. When she was young, she moved to Gwangju with her family, but then her mother brought Minzy and her brother back to Seoul while travelling between Seoul and Gwangju to work with Minzy's father. She participated in many dance contests and competitions, winning various awards. A video of her at a dance competition in Gwangju was uploaded onto the Internet, and became viral with many people sending praise for her ability to dance. This video was then uploaded onto YG's homepage, whereupon the CEO, Yang Hyun-suk, contacted and recruited her to join the agency when she was only in sixth grade.
On May 2016, Minzy signed with Music Works. It was revealed that Minzy is currently preparing for her solo album and is interested in trying out different types of music and doesn’t want to limit herself to one specific genre. Music Works stated, “We are focusing on producing a first solo album which can portray all of Gong Minzy’s talent and potential. We will continue the preparations without being chased by time”.
