Yuqi (우기) also known as Sòng Yǔ Qí (宋雨琦) is a Chinese singer under Cube Entertainment. She is the lead vocalist and lead dancer of the South Korean girl group (G)I-DLE.
Yuqi loves listening to music since she was young. When her mother got pregnant with her, Yuqi's mother would often use mp3 players and let her listen to all kinds of music. Maybe that's the reason why she became interested in music. As she sang, she began to think if she practiced more she would be able to sing even better. So she came for a daring idea, she'll sing everyday for everyone to listen it. As for dance, she learnt Chinese dance since she was young and more specifically, she learnt the Daizu dance as well.
When she was in the secondary school, K-Pop become a thing. Then, she started being exposed to K-Pop dances. From that moment, she cared more about K-Pop dances and songs. So she searched up some videos on the internet to learn them. Often when she was at home, she would imagine herself standing on a stage holding a pen, practicing singing and dancing and enjoying the concert that is organized by herself. Among the many type of dances, she got into the Girl Crush style of dance. She really liked HyunA from that moment on. So she participated 2015 Cube Audition held in Beijing and then Cube contacted her to evaluate for 2nd time. Actually the process of going alone in South Korea wasn't that easy for her because her parents was strongly against that idea. She would negotiate them everyday, trying to persuade them and finally they decided that Yuqi will do whatever she wants to do. At last, they allow her to become a trainee in South Korea. As such until now, she still very thankful to her parents but at the same time she feel very sorry for them as well. To be honest, she felt that training was even better than thinking of exams were troublesome. "This is troublesome... it's not that I'm pretending to study, I've always been a good student... The fact that people say I'm a know-it-all and it makes Yuqi sad~ *hmph* *hmph*" When she came to the South Korea for the final audition she passed. Her official trainee life started from then. Nowadays, she had been debuted and charged for the group's aegyo (acting cute)
