born on September 27, 1986, is a K-pop singer. Her family consists of her parents and two younger siblings (brother and sister). Bae Seul Ki's religious affilitation is Catholic. She first appeared as a member of The Red, but has since become a solo singer.
Bae Seul Ki is a South Korean pop singer. Educated at Sanmyong University in the areas of drama and cinematography, Bae first debuted in the fall of 2005 as part of the project group The 빨강 (The Red) with actresses Oh Seung-Eun and Ju So-Young, which allowed her to gain stage experience and fame before her solo debut. Appearing on many variety shows, she became an Internet sensation when she showed her 복고 (bokko meaning "old school") dance on SBS's Love Letter.
After the group split in early 2006 (as it was a "project group", used for introducing new singers), the record company felt that Bae Seul Ki could handle being a solo singer. They quickly prepared a digital single, with a full album following in the fall of 2006. The first single from the album, "강한 여자" (Ganghan Yujah, meaning "Strong Woman"), had Carlos from the Korean rap group Uptown and featured Bae with many b-boys in a heavily choreographed breakdancing routine. However, this single was quickly abandoned after a few weeks in favor of "말괄량이" (Malgwalyangee, meaning "Tomboy" or "Sassy Girl"), a song with a cute, light feel. It was more in line with popular taste, as similar songs like "Cutie Honey" by Ahyoomee (from Sugar) and "Love Me Love Me" from Lee Ji Hye (formerly of S#arp) were doing well. This song managed to perform well on the Korean music charts, and the music video also became number one for three weeks. In addition to promoting her single, she has also assisted Eru's performances of his second album comeback single, "까만 안경" (Ggaman Angkyung, "Black Glasses").
With the success of "Tomboy", her record company quickly released her 2nd digital single in December of 2006. Her title single "One by One" featured her in a snowy backdrop to suit the Christmas mood. The lyrics of this song was also composed by her. She has since started to promote this single on the various music programs. She also did a duet with Glass Box on a charity album called "Mind Bridge".
After ending the promotion of her album, Bae Seul Ki has moved on to hosting. In April 2007, she began hosting a music programme on KM TV called POP, which introduces popular foreign music to Korean fans. In April, she also hosted MBC's Music Show with Brian Joo from Fly to the Sky , acting as a guest MC in place of Kim Hyun Joong from SS501.
Bae Seul Ki has announced that she is acting in a new drama which is a China-Korea collaboration. It will start filming in May 2007 in China and plans to be broadcasted in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and South Korea in October. When she arrived on Shanghai in middle May, more than 300 fans arrived at the airport to welcome her, and at the same time showering her with many gifts.
In May 2007, Bae Seul Ki made a guest appearance in Banana Girls Music Video "Chocolate" alongside other stars like Kan Mi Youn.
