Kwon So Hyun is a South Korean singer and actress. She is known as a former member of the South Korean girl group 4Minute, under Cube Entertainment. She is also a former member of the South Korean girl group, Orange. Before June 15, 2016 (end of her contract with Cube), Kwon left 4Minute and the record label along with members Nam Ji Hyun, Heo Ga Yoon, and Jeon Ji Yoon.
Kwon was born in Seoul, South Korea. She attended Kumho Junior High School and Pungmoon Girls’ High School, graduating from the latter in February 2013. She ranked fourth in her class. In November 2014, it was revealed that Kwon was accepted into Dongguk University’s Department of Theatre and Film.
Kwon debuted as a member of the group Orange in 2005 when she was 12 years old. The band released their debut album, titled We Are Orange with the title track “Our Star”. The group disbanded in late 2005 due to cyberbullying and anti-fan internet cafes against the group.
In middle school, Kwon began registering for audition academies. There she met a representative of an agency and became a trainee in less than two months. Kwon was grouped with the other 4Minute trainees, filling the vacancy caused by Soyou’s departure.
