On a recent episode of MBC’s Video Star, former 4Minute member and current actress, Son Ji Hyun, formerly known as Nam Jihyun, dished about her popularity during her years as an idol.


She first revealed the behind story of why she changed her name from Nam Jihyun to Son Ji Hyun.

When I go to auditions, I get called 4Minute’s Nam Jihyun. I didn’t think that was good for me or any of my fellow auditionees, so I ended up changing my name.

Park Na Rae then went on to expose Son Ji Hyun for how much she loves herself.

She picked herself as the 4Minute member who was the most popular when they went to clubs together. When people suspected her for getting breast implants, she said, ‘My breasts were always this big.’
