[edit] 1997–2006: Baby V.O.X. Days

Main article: Baby V.O.X

Kan Mi Youn debuted in 1997 as a member of a K-pop girl group Baby V.O.X, replacing an ex-member (Cha Yu-mi) who was injured on stage during performance.[2] Kan was assigned the “princess” role in the group and known for her cute and comical traits. Kan was considered not only the main but also the best vocalist in the group, having the ability in hitting high notes.[3]

In 1999, the group’s Come Come Come album “Get Up” reached the number one spot on the Korean music pop charts and since then, the group released many hit albums which earned them a vast loyal fan base in Korea, China, Thailand and other Asian market.[4][5]

Although garnering a large fan base, Kan was a frequent target of anti-fans.[6] The most shocking incident was in 1999, when Kan was targeted for murder by a fan of the K-pop boy group H.O.T.[7] Kan was rumored to be dating H.O.T. member Moon Hee Joon which resulted in attracting many anti-fans. She received an envelope containing razor blades and a letter threatened to murder her.[8]

[edit] 2006: Establishing a Solo Music Career

In 2006, Kan decided to go solo when she signed on to a new record label, thus ending her 8 years of activities as a member of Baby V.O.X. With Kan departure, in March 2006, Baby V.O.X was officially disbanded.[9] Kan released her first solo album entitled Refreshing on September 15, 2006. The album was a reflection on what has been going through in her life, as a maturing woman.[10] Soon after, Kan decided to focus her music career in China, spending most of her time learning Mandarin and appearing on mainstream Chinese TV shows and music performances.[11][12]

[edit] 2007–2009: A Career in China

While focusing on the Chinese market, Kan Mi Youn reached a significant level of success in China.[13] One of Kan most notable feats in China was in 2007, where she won a famous mandarin singing competition, “名声大震”, with Chinese singer Anson Hu.[14] It was this feat that shot her into even more stardom, securing her as a successful artist in the Chinese market.[15][16]

In January 2008, Kan released a Chinese version of Refreshing album. Following the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, Kan together with various Asian artistes participated in the songs “Promise”[17] and “I Love Asia”,[18] a fund raising project spearheaded by Jackie Chan[19] for the support of the people in earthquake-hit areas.

[edit] 2010: Digital single: Going Crazy

On July 1, 2010, Kan Mi Youn finally made her full comeback after 3 years of absence from the Korean music scene. Despite the hiatus, Kan proved that she is still hot in the K-pop industry.[20] With her new short hair and sexy image,[21] the digital single entitled 미쳐가 (Going Crazy) feat. Mir of MBLAQ gained lots of attentions from the fans.[22] The music video released in GomTV and YouTube on June 30, featuring Lee Joon and Mir of MBLAQ hits 200,000 views, crowning it most viewed music video within a day.[23] On July 15, Kan officially launched her own fashion line named “Kanderella”, where she is the CEO of this online fashion store.[24]
