Fresh Faces

Son Dam-bi

Son Dam-Bi is a popular South Korean actress and singer who rose to fame when she appeared in a commercial for an MP3 player alongside Poppin' Hyun Joon.

Her debut single "Cry Eye" features five tracks that show off her vocal and dancing talents. It was produced and composed by Jang Joon Ho, who previously wrote MC Mong's "180 Degrees" and Jang Woo Hyuk's "Last Game." The lyrics were provided by Brian Kim, who also penned Shinhwa’s "Once in A Lifetime."

Ms. Son joined MBC's reality show "We Got Married" and was paired with Marco. It was also announced that she would be part of the cast for "Hype Nation," a film that has been labelled a "world movie". However, as the movie was delayed, she released a mini-album with the single "Toyoil Bamae" ("On a Saturday Night"). The song became her first #1 hit, topping various on- and offline charts, including M! Countdown (within 20 days), two wins on KBS's Music Bank, a 3-week chart-topping run on SBS's Inkigayo. The song's routine features Ms. Son in various 80's fashion styles, transforming her into a "retro fashionista".

She made her acting debut in the SBS drama "Dream" with Joo Jin-mo and Kim Bum.

After her "Cry Eye" success, Ms. Son returned to Korea from the United States and released "Mini Album Vol.1," with a focus on electronica (departing from her previous style of crunk pop) on April 29, 2008. The lead title was "Bad Boy," produced by Brave Brothers.

In September 2008, she returned with the single "Crazy," which featured a "chair dance" that has become popular with the Korean public; it has since been upgraded to a "sofa dance". The dance has been copied and parodied by many people, including Hyun Young, Infinity Challenge comedy team member No Hongchul, comedian Shin Bong-sun, and Lee Soo Young. Her follow-up song in 2009, "Toyoilbamae" ("On a Saturday Night"), was a success. She then released her next EP, The Queen.
