Viral video choir lady is now a 16-year-old JYP Entertainment trainee
Viral videos have a way of changing one's life. A year ago, a South Korean video went viral when people were impressed by what looked like a middle-aged woman dancing at church and flapping her arms like an eagle. Recently, sharp-eyed netizens spotted her in a very different video.
It turned out that the choir lady is actually a 16-year-old girl named Kim Da Hyun, and she is now a trainee at JYP Entertainment. A company representative responded to inquiries by saying, "Kim Da Hyun, who became a hot topic via her church choreography video, is currently affiliated as a JYP trainee." He denied that she got into JYP because of the video by saying that she had auditioned back in July 2012.
Here's the original "eagle dance" video that went viral in South Korea. Kim was dancing to "The Power of Your Love" with the lyrics of "Like an eagle, rise to the sky."
