But who is Lee Sun Bin? and why does she seems so familiar?
Today, I’d like to introduce you to the rising star Lee Sun Bin!
Originally an idol
Lee Sun Bin is a 24-year-old rising actress but she actually got her start as an idol, she had debuted back in 2011 as part of a Kpop group called JQT, she joined them in 2011 after a member departed the group. She was a vocalist in that group.
However, shortly after and in 2012, the group’s contract with their label at the time expired and the girls didn’t renew, thus they disbanded.
She left the agency and joined another one; she joined as an acting trainee and began promoting again in 2014 snagging CF roles.
In 2016, her agency revealed to news outlets that she will be debuting in a new girl group in 2017, but those plans fell through.
She demonstrated her dancing skills on “Radio Star,” you can check out the clip of her dancing below:

Re-birth as an actress
Although she started out as an idol, many people don’t know she was actually a part of a Kpop group which is because of her rising popularity as an actress.
She snagged her first role in the 2014 Chinese drama “Saint Wang Xizhi” and got her breakthrough role in OCN’s hit drama “38 Squad” alongside Seo In Guk and Ma Dong Suk.
She was turning heads playing the supporting character of the hugely popular series, since then she went on to starr in many productions such as “Missing 9” and “Criminal Minds.”
