I was really torn as to who I should feature this week (ugh). I wanted to feature my 2nd favorite Super Junior hottie but erm... I decided to forgo that idea. Back-to-back features of two idols from the same group seems kinda lame and I wish to bring more estrogen back to my featurettes after overpowering you with testosterone from last week's post. My gosh, I didn't realize how long that post was 'til I published it. Guess you can totally tell I'm into Kyuhyun, huh? nyahahaha
Moving along now... This week's K-idol is from a female pop group called Brown Eyed Girls (B.E.G). I wish to do a feature of the 4 members but I didn't want to make this a long post like the previous feature, so... my dear readers, let me introduce you to... Son Ga-In.

I love the Brown Eyed Girls so much. In my opinion, these girls can blackball most of the famous Korean girl groups today. Yet, it's a shame they're not as famous internationally like the bubbly pop girl groups, they're quite underrated when they have more swagger, more talent and boy, all four of them are super hottt! And if you watch the video, Abracadabra, you'll know what I'm talking about. Okay... now back to Ga-In.
Ga-In Ga-in was hand-picked by by the three members after she was eliminated from "Battle Shin Hwa". According to Ga-in, as she was crying in the bathroom after not making the cut, she was found by composer Ahn Jung Hoon. Her elimination turned out to be the best thing that happened to her for she was chosen through that audition to be part of the Brown Eyed Girls.
Ga-In's trademark look, as I mentioned earlier, are her smoldering stares brought about by her dark and heavy eye makeup. I love this look on her, a LOT. Nearly all of her pictures, variety show appearance, and stage performances, she always sports this sort of look. And her hair is always this pixie-short, I swear, I was so tempted to have my long locks chopped and have it styled just like hers.
Just like most of the K-pop Idols, Ga-In dabbled in some variety show and sitcom guest spots as well as dramas, but her longest-running stint was on the show, "We Got Married" along with 2AM member, Jo Kwon in September 2009. The two portrayed a married couple and are the most popular virtual couple of the said show. However, their virtual marriage came to an end after 15 months in January 2011.
And of course, I cannot end this featurette without dishing out some dirt about this idol. In an interview back in 2008, Ga-In sparked everyone's curiosity when she admitted that a younger celebrity asked her out over the phone. However, she had to turn him down as they were both singers, and that would complicate things for them. Everyone was intrigued as to who it was when she mentioned that they would go on stage together for the Star Goldenbell. At first the MC's speculated it was either from Super Junior or Shinhwa but then realized that most of the members of each group were older than Ga-In. The MC then asked her, "Big Bang? G-Dragon?" Ga-In was flabbergasted, covered her face, and said, "Yes."
