Kim So Hye (김소혜; or simply Sohye) is a South Korean idol singer and actress signed under S&P Entertainment. She is best known for finishing fifth in Mnet's girl group survival show Produce 101, and as a member of girl group I.O.I.


Music video appearances


  • Coming from an acting company, she was training to become an actress and had no experience in singing and dancing before joining Produce 101.
  • In June 2016, she created S&P (Shark & Penguin) Entertainment to manage her activities as an idol.
  • She also opened a coffee shop, Penguin's Café, located in Seocho District to provide a space where she and her own agency can connect with fans.
  • During the course of Produce 101, she received the nickname "Penguin" due to her claiming that all humans came from penguins.
  • She also received the nickname "Victory Fairy" due to her defying the odds as she had zero experience in becoming an idol, yet managed to become part of a girl group out of 101 trainees.
  • There is a running gag with Sohye as most members will ask her "Sohye, do you wanna become a singer?" as a reference to an episode in Produce 101 where trainer Bae Yoon Jung asked her the same question when she showed poor dancing skills.
  • She was a trainee for 8 months, if including Produce 101, then it will be exactly 1 year.
