Kpop Gets A Little More Diverse With Debut Of Transgender Idol

We have more progress in Kpop…somewhat. A new girl group has debuted and their name is Mercury. I have pretty much stopped giving new debuts a second glance because…well….they’re no good. However, Mercury is standing out to me because one of their members is a transgender woman, Choi Han Bit.

You may be familiar with Choi Han Bit for being a former contestant on Korea’s Next Top Model. This is a great step in making “Hallyuwood” and Kpop more diverse, however, I am questioning her role in the group.

There seems to be not even a once of effort on anyone’s behalf to make this group stand out musically.
