Han Sunhwa – South Korean k-pop singer and actress

Han Sunhwa was born on 6 October 1990 in Busan. She has a younger brother and a sister. Han has been taking care of her siblings since childhood. Her parents were working day and night, and Sunhwa was dealing with children. But the girl found time to listen to her favorite music and dream of becoming a celebrity. During the financial crisis in 1998, the family was on the brink of poverty. Han’s hope that she could have a singing career was slowing dying. However, the girl eventually managed to pursue her dream.

When Han was young, she was also dreaming of becoming a painter. She attended art classes in middle school. Her paintings earned her a few awards at the local contests. Her love for art quickly turned into a dream of becoming a famous singer after Han heard BoA perform. She made a decision to pursue a singing and dancing career.

Han’s way to fame was long and hard. In 2004, she went to Seoul to audition for S.M. Entertainment’s music project. The managers told the girl that she wasn’t good enough. However, the teenager didn’t give up. She participated in as many contests and shows as she possibly could. Sunhwa’s goal was to hone her skills and, with a little luck, find someone, who would give the aspiring singer a chance. In 2005, she became one of the finalists on the talent show Superstar Survival but was dropped five episodes later. Even though Han had to leave, she gained impressive experience of performing on stage. After leaving the project, Han returned to Busan.
