Submitted: May 26 2012 01:06 AM by kireido

It took less then one day for Happy Face Entertainment to replace former Dal Shabet member Viki after she announced that she was leaving the group in order to peruse a solo career. Viki made the announcement on May 24th through the official website so she could talk directly to the fans.

The newest member of Dal Shabet goes by the name of Woohee. Representatives of Happy Face Entertainment announced that Woohee has spent many years preparing for her debut, and like fellow Dal Shabet members Ahyoung and Jiyul, she was also born in 1991. Woohee was previously a Medialine trainee before she left the company last year and moved to Happy Face.

Woohee expressed her excitement about joining Dal Shabet, stating that she is a big fan of the group. Woohee is currently taking a leave of absence from the Dong-Ah Institute of Media and Arts.

Woohee commented, "I’m so excited to become the new member of Dal Shabet as I’m a big fan of the group," said Woo-hee. "I’m a little worried though as I have some big shoes to fill in Viki’s absence. All the members have been so kind to me and I’ll give it my best," she said.

Dal Shabet is currently preparing for their next album, which is due to be out in June.

What do you think of the replacement?

    That might be a bit of a stretch, for all we know this could've been in the works for a while now, we're just finding out about it now. Either way, sad to see Viki go, she was always my favourite
