Shim Eun-jin (Korean: 심은진; born February 6, 1981) is a South Korean singer and actress. She was a former member of 1990s girl group Baby V.O.X.

Career[edit]

Shim Eun-jin launched her singing career in 1998 as a member of Baby V.O.X, one of the most prominent South Korean girl groups of the 1990s.[1] She was the first to leave the group at the end of 2004, publicly stating that she did not agree with the direction their record company DR Music was heading.

After a short absence from the entertainment scene, she re-emerged at the end of 2005 with her first solo album, Zeeny's, which was released by the label CJ Music on December 16, 2005. The first single, "Oopsy," was a sexy dance number, allowing Shim to showcase her sexy dance moves (which she was best known for during her time as a Baby V.O.X member). She then moved on to a ballad as her second single, although it was not promoted heavily. Sales of the album were mediocre, although not abysmal. While promoting her album, she went on various variety shows, and launched her clothing line, Z'BAGO.[2]

In 2006, Shim made her acting debut in the period drama Dae Jo-yeong.[3]

She held her first solo art exhibition titled Share Joy and Sorrow at the Jeong-am Art Gallery in June 2013; more than 60 of her artworks were on display, including photographs, croquis and writings.[4][5] She had previously joined the Asia Top Gallery Hotel Art Fair in 2010.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Shim studied Interactive Multimedia Arts at Kyonggi University. She dated football player Lee Chun-soo in 2008.[3]
