Songwriting and Composing

In 2020, Sowon participated in the production of her unit song “Better Me” with Umji (on the album 回:Walpurgis Night). She is credited as a writer on the song – this means she participated in songwriting and/or composing, but I’m not 100% sure of the details.

Variety Show Appearances

IMPORTANT!!! I have moved to Korea since I created this blog, and I have discovered that many videos – especially ones that are uploaded by fans with English subs – have been blocked on Korean YouTube and other websites.  So unfortunately, I cannot watch most of these videos or verify the links anymore.  This also means I cannot add as many videos as before because they simply are not available in my region.  I’m sorry if you click on something and it’s no longer there, but there’s not really any way for me to check! – Katherine


Idol Room
JTBC (episodes on V-Live)
Episode 34
A K-pop centered variety show with former Weekly Idol hosts Jung Hyungdon and Defconn.  It generally features standard dance and mission corners, tailoring the games to the group or a specific member. Sowon appeared on a New Year’s Special with female idols born in the Year of the Pig: YooA (Oh My Girl), Jiyoung (Bolbbalgan4), and Chungha. Clips (especially subbed ones) are hard to find because the show is pretty vigilant about their copyright.  It’s best to go directly to the source on V-Live (click on the episode above).


Trend With Me
In 2019, Sowon was one of the MCs for a beauty show called Look At Me. As part of that show, she had her own segment called “Trend With Me” that showed her daily life.

NOTE: Some of the clips have the same episode number, so I added A/B/C to avoid confusion. Some clips do not have English subtitles; those are marked with an asterisk (*).
