SISTAR member Soyu is being featured in Grazia Magazine!  Kang Ji Hyun better known by her stage name Soyou is a South Korean idol singer and actress. She is best known as a member of the South Korean girl group Sistar under Starship Entertainment.

Soyou was born on February 12, 1992, in Jeju Island, South Korea. Soyou was a Cube Entertainment trainee before debuting with SISTAR and was originally supposed to debut as a member of 4Minute. Soyou replied that she didn’t make it into the group because she was lacking in many ways. She was originally supposed to be in Sohyun’s place. Instead, Soyou auditioned for Starship, singing a cover of Navi's "On The Road", and debuted as a member of SISTAR.

As she's one of the new MCs for 'Get It Beauty 2015', Soyu tried on various fashion trends for the shoot, including fake tattoos, fake piercings, pop nails, and rocker lips. She said, "I used to be scared of the camera. I really hated it when the cameras closed in on me. I kept hiding in the back because I thought, 'I'm definitely going to look really weird', and 'People will curse me out again'. But now I think, 'Well, what am I going to do about how I look? My mother gave birth to me like this'. I've accepted myself."

She added that Hyorin was a big help to her confidence boost, saying, "Hyorin-unni has a very strong mind. I think she gave me a lot of good influence. We try to trust each other and work not to become weak. Before, I was full of complexes and I defaulted to thinking that I couldn't. But the amazing thing is that now that I changed how I think, everything seems to work out well. So I always try to stay positive."
