One member from Starship Entertainment‘s upcoming girl group Cosmic Girls is gaining attention after a clip of her past audition on K-Pop Star resurfaced.
On an online community, a netizen published a post titled “K-Pop Star Im Dayoung = Cosmic Girls’ Dayoung?” and included the said video. The post quickly spread across the internet as netizens grew interest in the Cosmic Girls’ member.
Im Dayoung took part in the first season of K-Pop Star in 2011 and was merely 13 years old. In her initial audition, she sang a Rumble Fish song and captured the hearts of both the viewers and judges after she revealed that she was so nervous that her legs were shaking. She then showed off her dancing skills, unleashing quite a different charisma.
In a follow up audition later in the show, she sang 2NE1′s “Lonely” with the help of Yang Hyun Suk to start her off. Despite her young age at the time, she showed talent with her pure vocals.
Meanwhile, Dayoung will be finally debuting as part of an idol girl group named Cosmic Girls, the latest to come out of Starship Entertainment. Along with rapper EXY, she was confirmed as part of the lineup along with members Cheng Xiao and Bona as the “Wonder Unit.”
Cosmic Girls is a 12-member girl group consisting of both Korean and Chinese members and will have four different units including a J, S, and N unit.
