The details (from wikipedia)


Kim Ah-young (born November 6, 1992), better known by her stage name Yura, is a South Korean singer and actress. She is best known as a member of the South Korean girl group Girl's Day.

Early life and education

Yura was born on November 6, 1992 in Ulsan, South Korea. She attended Ulsan Art High School as a dance major. Yura is currently attending Dongduk Women's University, alongside fellow group member Minah.


In 2010, Yura became a member of the K-pop girl group Girl's Day, where she and Hyeri replaced two of the former members, Jiin and Jisun, who left after having been with the group for two months. Dream Tea promoted Girl's Day before their debut with the creation of an official Fan Café, a YouTube channel, and Twitter accounts for the group and each of its members. The group also conducted a flash mob dance before the debut in the commercial and entertainment districts of Seoul, gaining much interest.

In 2012, Yura made her acting debut through Sohu TV's Chinese drama Secret Angel, where she played the role of Yubin. She then collaborated with her label-mate Jevice with their single "I Want to Love Now". Yura also participated as a cameo role of Lee Eun-yeong, who was the fan of Kang Tae-jun in SBS's drama To the Beautiful You.

In 2014, Yura starred in the music video of Wheesung's "Night and Day" along with C.A.P of Teen Top. She then became one of the official couples for the variety show We Got Married, where she was paired with model turned actor Hong Jong-hyun. Additionally, Yura serves as the MC for joint Korean-Chinese audition program 'Super Idol'.

In 2016, Yura was cast as one of the new MCs of Olive Channel's Tasty Road with Kim Min-jung.


On November 8, 2010, Yura's ex-management company Action Music Entertainment filed an injunction against Yura, stopping her from signing a second contract with Dream Tea Entertainment. They wanted the 4 member girl group's debut to be halt indefinitely until the problem was resolved. In response, representatives of Dream Tea stated Action Music had violated contractual terms; they did not pay for the contract deposit for three weeks, provided insufficient support, deceived Yura with false claims of broadcast activities, and forced her to cover all expenses. Dream Tea also clarified that Yura's parents had completed all of the proper procedures to terminate her contract with Action Music before signing with Dream Tea. The lawsuit was pursued when Action Music insisted that they had a video of Yura's unacceptable behavior. On January 20, 2011, the court ruled in Yura's favor.
