K-Pop Gets Their First 100% Caucasian Solo Artist from Russia
K-Pop just got their first Russian solo artist.
Lana, a long-time fan of Korean culture, debuted as a soloist under HICC Entertainment after two years of training.
The new star, whose real name is Eugenia Svetlana, has already appeared in various South Korean TV shows such as “Welcome, First Time in Korea?” (MBC), “Abnormal Summit” (JTBC) and “Problematic Men” (tvN), according to Allkpop.
She reportedly gained popularity for having a “Korean” look, despite being full Russian. Many of her fans call her a “goddess.”
According to KProfiles.com, Lana is classically trained in dance.
Fluent in Russian, English, and Korean, she is also studying political science and diplomacy at Sungkyukwan University in Seoul, where she reportedly received scholarship in the middle of the current semester.
