Girls’ Generation’s Hyoyeon Confirms Plans To Release New Music As DJ HYO
It was announced on July 10 that Hyoyeon was working on new music for release as DJ HYO. A source from SM Entertainment replied and said, “It’s true that Hyoyeon is working on a new album, and it will be released in July.”
Kim Hyo-yeon’s stage name is Hyo. But you may know her best as Hyoyeon – the South Korean act Girls’ Generation ‘s main dancer, rapper, and vocalist. But three years ago, she made her solo debut with tracks “Mystery” and “Wannabe,” as a musician.
Back in February, DJ Hyo was in her element, mixing K-pop songs with “Barbie Girl” from Aqua and “Viva La Vida” from Coldplay. It was a different kind of K-pop scene. There were fears that this event would be cancelled but its organizers FanLive and Istudyo Ni Pipay took the necessary precautions when it pushed through. At the entrance surgical masks were being given away, hand sanitizers were available.
She made her debut as a DJ in 2018 with the track “Sober.” Since then she has vigorously promoted herself as a DJ under SM Entertainment. She ranked fourth in Asia’s 2019 Top 100 DJanes while placing 61st in the world’s top 100 DJanes.
