Name : Solbi (real name: Kwon Ji-an)

Date of birth : Sep. 30, 1984
Height : 163cm
Hobbies : Listening to music, playing video games, traveling
Debuted as a vocal of group Typhoon in 2006

Solbi has won a wide following after showing her cute and charming personality on a TV reality show, “We Got Married.” Not wanting to be branded as just an entertainer, however, she has come back as a solo artist with her first solo mini album “Do It.” Unlike her lovely girlish image built in the reality show, Solbi brought out the mature and provocative side of her with hip hop dance pieces in her new album. The title song “Do It Do It” takes after the American style hip hop music, which is more sophisticated and mature than her songs released during her days as the vocal of Typhoon. But she also shows her musical talent with mellow R&B piece “Like a Star” and medium tempo “Half.”

Do It (mini album, 2008-09-11) : Half, Do it Do it, Like a Star, Cute Love, etc.
