Secret, it’s 4 talented girls, a spirit and a style that you would recognize easily. They were formed in 2009 by TS Entertainment. They got a pretty good success in Korea and then in Japan. That’s also the reason why they have been promoting in Japan during one year and were therefore absent from the Korean scene. They recently made their come back with a mini album called „Poison“. What we can confirm is that they never came to Europe, which is sad. It will be good to have them perform here in Europe as well. That’s why Japako music has decided to support them. They deserve a lot more success because they have a lot to share and give.
Now let’s check the members! First, we have the leader Hyosung, she is a very pretty woman with a great smile. She has a nice voice and can dance very well of course. Her personality is very nice: she is funny and it seems that she stayed simple. She has pride of course but it’s a good pride. She is not looking arrogant or whatsoever. She doesn’t mind looking like a fool which is great. She is definitely friendly and we like that kind of girl. The female rapper of the band is Zinger, she has the bad girl kind of look, but she seems also very friendly. She is a bit more quiet but she is not afraid to say what she has to say. She is very talented, she can rap very well, but also sings and dances very well. She is also very sexy, which is definitely interesting for the guys. Then, we have Jieun, she is the quieter one of the band and she looks like a doll. But she has a very nice and powerful voice which is always nice to hear. Last but not least, we have Sunhwa, she is a very good singer too but she is also doing a lot of other activities, so she is the most busy from all the members of secret. She has a lot of energy and is very talkative. She can be very harsh when she talks but she is also funny in her own way.
They debuted with the mini album „Secret time“ in April 2010, but it’s with their second mini album „Madonna“ – released in August 2010 – that they started to have a real success. In 2011, they had already the chance to make a full length album but their success in Japan was starting at that time and therefore they only released the album „Moving in Secret“ in Korea. Even though they also released two singles in 2011, „Shy boy“ and „Starlight moonlight“. But their success overseas started to get bigger and they decided to promote themselves more in Japan, that’s why their Korean fans didn’t hear about them during one year. In Japan, they first released the mini album „Shy boy“ in 2011, and then in 2012, they also released a full length album „Welcome to secret time“. Even if they took a bit of time to come back, they did it and we are glad that they released the mini album „Poison“ – in September 2012 – for the pleasure of all their fans in Korea.
Well, those girls have a lot of potential and are definitely worth listening to. Live, they are definitely sexy and give a very warm feeling. In interviews, they are themselves and you can also have a lot of fun, especially with Hyosung. We can only advise you to check them out and make your own opinion but as for Japako music, we will definitely watch them closely for their next releases and activities.
