Yuri from Girls’ Generation is making her solo debut later today! Her debut EP, packed with songs in a range of styles, is called The First Scene. Look out for the MV for Into You dropping soon!

Kwon Yuri first debuted back in 2007 with SM Entertainment’s megastar girl group, Girls’ Generation. She was a trainee for almost six years at SM before her debut. Alongside her main group activities, she’s appeared as an actress in many ads, music videos, TV shows and movies. One of her first MV appearances without GG was in K.Will’s 2009 track Dropping the Tears. Yuri’s also a songwriter – she wrote the lyrics for Mistake, a song on Girls’ Generation’s third mini album, Hoot.

Her most recent drama appearance was in the SBS’ drama Innocent Defendant. She was nominated for an award for her role as a lawyer in this drama, which aired last year. This month, look out for her in the sitcom The Sound of Your Heart and the new MBC drama Dae Jang Geum Is Watching.

Of course, Yuri is still a member of Girls’ Generation, and recently promoted as part of the subunit Oh!GG. There’s no stopping her this year!
