If you're a long-time K-Pop fan, you may have heard of the name Fin.K.L. In fact, they were one of the first-generation girl groups to propel K-Pop back in the late 1990s and 2000s! The group debuted in 1998 and consisted of Lee Hyori, Ock Joo Hyun, Lee Jin, and Sung Yu Ri.

They went on to become one of the top-performing girl groups of their generation, and are still highly-respected up to this day. After seven years of promoting, they became inactive beginning 2005, and subsequently reunited in 2019.

Since the group's last release, what are Lee Hyori, Ock Joo Hyun, Lee Jin and Sung Yu Ri doing now?
