However, several countries are still not as represented in K-Pop, with Singapore being one of them. However, there have been Singaporean K-Pop idols, and they were actually in the same group!

In 2012, the five-member girl group SKarf debuted under Alpha Entertainment. SKarf was said to be based on the word scarf, with the K standing for Korean and the S standing for Singapore.


Before the group’s formation, auditions were held in Singapore, where several trainees were recruited. Ultimately, only two would go on to debut in SKarf — Ferlyn G and Tasha Low. The group promoted until the end of 2014, with Ferlyn departing a few months before their quiet disbandment.

Through the years, she took on many more acting roles, and in 2023, she appeared in four Singaporean drama series, including Oppa! Saranghae!
