Kang Ji-hyun (Hangul강지현; born February 12, 1992), better known by her stage name Soyou (소유), is a South Korean singer. She is best known as a former member of the South Korean girl group Sistar under Starship Entertainment.


Soyou was born on February 12, 1992,[1] in Jeju Island, South Korea. Soyou was a Cube Entertainment trainee before debuting with Sistar[2] and was originally supposed to debut as a member of 4Minute. Soyou has said 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.[3] Instead, Soyou auditioned for Starship Entertainment, singing a cover of Navi's "On The Road",[4] and debuted as a member of Sistar. Before debuting, she was a licensed hairdresser and worked in a hair salon.[5]



In June 2010, Soyou made her debut as a member of Sistar on KBS Music Bank with their debut single, "Push Push".[6]

Solo career

In August 2010, Soyou collaborated with Woo of J2 for the soundtrack for the drama Gloria. In September, she also sang a soundtrack for MBC's drama Playful Kiss. The song is titled "Should I Confess".[7]

In November 2012, Soyou sang a duet with hip-hop duo Geeks. The song "Officially Missing You, Too" is a remake of Tamia's song of the same title. It is a part of Geeks' project album, Re;Code Episode 1.[8] She also collaborated with fellow label mates, K.Will and Boyfriend's Jeongmin, for Starship Planet's yearly holiday release, titled "White Love".[9]

In September 2013, it was revealed that Soyou together with Mad Clown would release a duet called "Stupid in Love on the 10th.[10]

In February 2014, Soyou and Junggigo released a duet called "Some".[11]

In January 2015, it was revealed that Soyou, together with Lee Honey and Kim Jungmin, would be the new MCs of beauty tip program Get It Beauty. The new MCs' first episode aired on February 4, 2015.[12]

In February 2017, Soyou and Baekhyun released a duet called "Rain".[13][14]

At the end of August 2017, Soyou was featured as the vocalist on Primary's song "Right?".[citation needed]
