First generation K-wave singer and musical actress Bada (Choi Sung Hee) has new found popularity in China.

The former S.E.S singer recently entered the finals for the Chinese version of the singing contest program "I Am a Singer."

Bada (35), is the first Korean to break into the top nine performers appearing on the music competition show.

"Bada was invited to compete with Asia's best singers in China's version of 'I Am a Singer,'" explained a Dec. 28 statement from the star's agency The Ocean Entertainment, as reported by K-Pop Herald.. "In the first round that aired on December 26, Bada perfectly performed Hacken Lee's hit song 'Red Sun' in Cantonese and made it to the top 9." 

"Despite the disadvantage of singing in Cantonese, which is supposedly more difficult than Mandarin, Bada made it to the next round with great results," explained the singer's agency rep.

In addition to her TV appearances in China, Bada plans to release a new album in January of 2016. Her last solo release was in 2009 with See the Sea.

The next episode of the Chinese version of "I Am a Singer," when Bada will compete for a spot in the top 6, airs on Saturday at 9:30pm CST on Guangdong Television.
