, another project which consists of 4 different ‘badass’ members will be coming soon through the variety program “Hangout With Yoo”.

Real life: Lee HyoRi is a singer and entertainer who has made appearance in several hit Korean variety shows. She is also a well known advocate for animal welfare and rights.
EunBi is from the U.S. and hence is not that fluent in Korean compared to the rest of the members. However, she gets well easily with the group but noted by Jimmy Yoo to have an impatient personality.

Real life: Uhm JungHwa is a well known and highly respected multi entertainer who is capable in singing, dancing and acting. One of her famous works includes the movie “Haeundae”.
#2 4 different generations of artists
While Refund Expedition might be a project group, the news of the members forming a group had already hyped up many fans.
The reason is because of how the members each represent a different generations since their age ranges from 20s to 50s.
In addition, all of them have a ‘badass’ image which adds on to the girl crush factor.
#3 Meaning of the group
With the tough and powerful concept which they are going for, some fans also noticed how the group name also has a special meaning.
The reason they had decided to go for ‘Refund Expedition’ is thanks to their strong images that they will always get a refund no matter where they go.
#4 Incredible music influence
For the month of August, it was noted that SSAK3 ‘Beach Again’, Jessi ‘NUNU NANA’ and HwaSa ‘Maria’ was ranked from 1st to 3rd position on Korean music sites.
Their influence is no joke and many are already anticipating how Refund Expedition will be dominating the music charts once they make their debut.
#5 Selection of manager
Since the show is still on going, they are also currently selecting a manager who will help with the promotion of the group.
Currently, the nominees include S.B.N (KwangHee), Yang SeHyung, Yang SeChan, Jo SeHo, Jung JaeHyung and Kim JongMin.
