Girls’ Generation’s Hyoyeon Makes Solo Debut With ‘Mystery’
At this point, it feels as though every member of Girls' Generation — one of K-Pop's longest reigning active girl groups (RIP 2NE1, still not over it) — has gone solo, whether it be acting, singing or some other variation of solo success outside of the group.
Now, it's Hyoyeon's turn.
Known for her stellar moves, the 27-year-old singing-dancing superstar has done everything from dancing for K-Pop Queen BoA to competing on the South Korean edition of Dancing With The Stars. (She came in second place, for the record.)
While she's collaborated on tracks separate from her main girl group in the past — including a feature on bandmate Taeyeon's "Up & Down" earlier this year — she's doing it all on her own this week with her debut solo single, "Mystery," released as part of SM Entertainment's STATION digital music channel.
The track, equipped with an intoxicating Arabian flair, provides Heoyeon some opportunity to bust out some of her fantastic moves throughout the shadowy visual — with her "Side To Side" Ariana Grande-looking ponytail to boot. She looks great, and the song should win her some shine as an artist in her own right.
According to Soompi, Hyoyeon plans to debut the track live on V Live! on December 1 at 10 PM KST, followed by various music shows for the next two weeks. UPDATE (12/5): Watch Hyoyeon nail "Mystery" on the comeback stage of KBS Music Bank below.
And while we're talking about the GG talent, watch some of Hyoyeon's finest dance moments on variety shows as of late — including, yes, a take on Chicago's "Cell Block Tango" — and her "Born to be Wild" performance as part of one-off supergroup Triple T from earlier in the year.
