TURAN (투란) was a girl group under Starpro Entertainment. They debuted in July 2013 with the single "Shotgun".
The group debuted in 2013 with their first digital single album "Shotgun" with "Bang Bang Bang" as the title track. This first line-up included leader Hanbi, Chae Un, Elisha, Lian, Sebin, Ryuji and LeeKyung. In the first few months the line-up changed rapidly.
In 2014, TURAN returned with a new line-up that was called a "re-debut/rebranding". This new lineup included leader Lian, UByeol, Elisha, E-Hwa, Hyobin and Hyejin. Hyejin would later become the leader of HINT.
