Another ‘Idol Family’ Revealed: New.F.O.’s Danah and BoM’s Ta Goon
Danah, member of the new girl group New.F.O., and BoM’s Ta Goon are actually siblings! This fact is all the more surprising because Ta Goon and Danah are both rappers for their respective groups.
As BoM is currently promoting its first single cut Dear Feelings, Dear Heart from its first mini album, released on November 4, and New.F.O. just made its debut on November 25 with the single Bounce, the two will be meeting not as brother and sister, but as rivals onstage.
Danah said, “[Ta Goon’s] personal Twitter account is full of tweets on me and my group, so much that people say he’s crazy for his sister. He monitored my debut stage for me, and I can feel like I can rely on him because he gives me a lot of advice as a senior and as a big brother. I want to meet him soon onstage now that our promotion schedules overlap.”
Netizens are wholeheartedly welcoming the new ‘idol family’.
Other ‘idol families’ include 2NE1’s Sandara Park and MBLAQ’s Thunder, Girls’ Generation’s Jessica and f(x)’s Krystal, SS501’s Kim Hyung Joon and former U-Kiss member Kim Ki Bum. The group Boyfriend even holds twins Kwang Min and Young Min.
JYJ’s Kim Junsu and his big brother Junho (Kim Jun Ho) are another talented pair, and Huh Gak, who is making it big on various music programs and music charts after winning Superstar K2, also has a twin brother, Huh Gong, who made his own debut as a singer.
As many idols who are literally related continue to pop up in the scene, fans are even forming fan cafés of specific idol families, bringing in the fans of both groups to support each other.
