Sistar members facts
Sistar group started singing back in 2010 with most of the deals ranging from TV commercials and photoshoots for magazines. Their official debut as a group goes back to June 3, 2010, through the song Push Push. Their debut performance was, however, not until June 4 when they performed on Music Bank and later had subsequent performances in various Korean shows and promotions.
The group resumed their performances the same year on August 25. They featured other superstars, including Kim Heechl and Super Junior. Their production on August 28 was disrupted when Bora fell and fractured her thumb. After a short stop to administer first aid, they returned on stage and continued filming. The video was an internet sensation and was featured in G4s online show, Attack of the Show.
Sistar was invited to perform at the Hallyu Music festival. It was the only performance group from Korea present at the event. They also attended the Golden Disk Awards and were crowned the winners of the "Newcomer Award."
All Sistar members names have a Korean meaning. For instance, Bora is a Korean name that means purple. With this in mind, no wonder Bora's favorite color is purple, which is also relative to royalty.
Each of the Sista members has a distinct role they play in the group. Sistar members position is given according to who can perform a given function correctly compared to the others. For instance, HyoLyn is the main vocalist, lead dancer, lead rapper and face of the group.
One thing that is almost similar across the bar is Sistar members age. All of them appear like they are age mates born at the same time. The oldest is Bora (1989), followed by HyoLyn (1990), then SoYou (1992), and finally, DaSom (1993).
Sistar members height varies from the shortest BoRa and HyoLyn (164cm) to DaSom (167 cm) and the tallest SoYou (168cm).
