K-pop star Sunmi turns 28 on May 2, but with South Korea’s social distancing measures extended until May 5 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the celebration will probably remain indoors. Fans are curious about what their queen has been up recently since they haven’t seen her on television since September 2019. Sunmi debuted as a singer with Wonder Girls in 2007. After three years, she took a break from the entertainment industry for the academic world. When she returned to the industry three years later, she debuted as a solo artist with her first single, 24 Hours . In February, Sunmi’s performance video for the song Gotta Go premiered on YouTube – it has been viewed more than five million times – followed days later with a video for the Gotta Go choreography rehearsal. The song isn’t from any future Sunmi album, but from the official soundtrack for the web drama XX . Fans have been asking for a follow-up to the 2018 EP Warning , but Sunmi is keeping quiet about any post-pandemic project on social media. Here are some updates on Sunmi. She is one of the most popular female K-pop soloists ever #SUNMI monthly numbers.

Are young K-pop stars overpaid – and should they hide their wealth? Fashion shoots A confessed homebody, Sunmi seems to be spending her days doing OOTD shoots indoors: normcore outfits, shoes and bags from luxury labels, the all-important face mask. Some of the shots were taken by her younger brother, Lee Sun-dong, who was an unofficial photographer on Sunmi’s “Warning” world tour in 2019.
