 Hwangbo's Career

Hwangbo first debuted in 1999 as the rapper for the group Bros. She then joined Chakra alongside Eeni, Eun, and Jeong Ryeo-won in 2000. The group released 4 albums, with the last one (Tomato) being released in 2003. Although they contributed to soundtrack albums, the group eventually split up in 2004.

Hwangbo then frequently appeared in various variety shows, including being a regular on SBS 'sX-ManandLove Letter. She cultivated an image of being a tomboy, due to her strong mannerisms and straightforwardness. This is where she developed her image and brought most of her fans. Hwang Bo was also able to do a lot of charity work. She constantly signed up for volunteer work, leaving the country to help people around the world, more specifically the Middle East and Africa. She "adopted" a little girl from Bangladesh, constantly sending money in order to create a beneficial life for her daughter. When the outbreak struck, Hwang Bo was in Korea wrapping up a recording of one of the variety shows she was participating in. Her daughter did not manage to make her way to New Delhi. Thoroughly shaken with what was happening around her, Hwang Bo began constant charity work to help those looking for refugee in Seoul. Hwang Bo has since began directing the money that used to go to her daughter to the Revival Project, becoming a spokesperson while juggling recordings and perhaps a new album.

A solo album was rumored to be released for some time; however, Hwangbo did not release an album until 2007 withLady in Black. The album marked an image change, as the first single ("눈물도 미안해서", "Even My Tears are Sorry") was a ballad. In mid-2008, she released a digital single,Gift for Him, which featured the song "뜨거워져" ("Get Hot"), a Tecktonik song. The remix features Koo Junyup of Clon ; the song's dance was choreographed by him as well.She also released a song called "Mature" as part of the "Gift For Him" 2-track release.

Hwangbo joined the MBC reality showWe Got Married, debuting on May 11, 2008. She was paired up with SS501 leader Kim Hyun Joong , who is 6 years her junior. Due to scheduling conflicts, Kim Hyun Joong and Hwangbo made their official exit of the show on December 14, 2008. Having gained high popularity through their fictional marriage, they won MBC's Best Couple Award on December 28, 2008.To this day Hwangbo still has a huge following because of her portrayal of the perfect wife on this show. She showed a vulnerable side never seen before and has attracted many fans due to this.

In 2009, Hwang Bo has remained active on television, becoming one of 6 MCs onInfinity Girls, an all-female version ofInfinite Challenge, airing on MBC Every1. The show was eventually revamped in November 2009, with the original cast leaving, including Hwangbo and replaced by all new members.She was also featured in Olive's Channel new showLiving Beauty.

She has also continued her modeling work, appearing as the model for the Labelle 2009 S/S online fashion catalog, and participating in Seoul Fashion week as one of the models for Korean designer Imseonoc.On April 2009, Hwang Bo released her newest digital release, "Can't Believe The Words," a remake of STAY's 2006 song.

During August 18, 2009 Hwang Bo released her newest single "R2song / Arisong" in South Korea, which was first released in the UK. The song ranked #1 on JunoDownload's singles charts on the day of its release, featuring a mix by producer Postino.
