Melody Day member Yoo Min has been revealed to be the niece of actor Jang Dong Gun.
According to an insider, “Jang Dong Gun and Yoo Min look very much alike in real life. I was surprised to know that she is his niece. Yoo Min was present at Jang Dong Gun and Ko So Young‘s wedding. Although she made fewer visits as she grew older, it seems like they had pretty close relations when she was younger.”
In other words, Yoo Min’s fraternal grandmother’s younger sister’s son is Jang Dong Gun, which ties their kinship, as Yoo Min’s father is an older cousin of Jang Dong Gun.
Melody Day, a four-member vocal girl group, made their debut in 2012 by featuring the OST “That One Word” for KBS 2TV‘s drama Bridal Mask. Since then, they have been consistently featuring in various OST projects. Yoo Min was recruited as a new member of Melody Day in October 2014.
On June 9th, the girls are set to release their second single “#LoveMe” as well as officially make their comeback via SBS MTV‘s music program The Show Season 4.
