Who is Shin Suran?
Born Shin Su-ran on the 15th July 1986 in Busan, South Korea, she is a prominent South Korean singer, who rose to prominence through K-pop and R&B music genres, with such songs as “Wine”, which reached No. 2 on the Gaon Music Chart and No. 11 on the KPOP chart.
Early Life, Parents, and Education
There is virtually no information about Suran’s early life, including the identity of her parents and whether she has any siblings. She never thought of singing as a career and didn’t even try to make something out of it until her 20s. In fact after finishing high school, Suran obtained a degree in Computer Science, although it hasn’t been disclosed which university she attended.
Suran, Baily Shoo, or Elena, all of which are her stage names, made her singing debut in 2014, when with the singer Effy she was a part of the k-pop duo Lodia, but they released just one song, “I Got a Feeling”, before disbanding. Suran continued with a solo career, and the same year released her debut solo single “I Feel”. She then collaborated with Beenzino, a rapper, on the song “Calling In Love”, and again with Beenzino as well as Primary, recorded the song “Mannequin”, which sold over 210,000 copies; both of these collaborations were in 2015, while in 2016 she worked with Hwasa on the song “Ddang”, and with KittiB, Park Bo-ram, KCM, Kiggen, and several other prominent South Korean performers, which only helped her improve her popularity.
Rise to Prominence
With every new song released, Suran’s name became more popular, which eventually led to a contract with Million Market, and so Suran started working on her debut studio album. In April 2017, Suran released the song “Wine”, and in no time it became a commercial hit, reaching No. 2 and No. 11 on Korean charts, selling over 1.5 million copies. Encouraged by this success, Suran became more focused on her debut album, which came out on the 2nd June the same year, entitled “Walkin’”. Though a mini album, it features five songs, including “1+1=0” in collaboration with the famous singer Dean, then “Yo”, a duet with Swings, and “Walking”. The album entered the Korean chart at No. 30, but failed to make a major impact on the Korean pop scene, however, her song “Wine” made Suran a star.
