Kim Yu Jin, better known by her stage name Uee or known as U-ie born April 9, 1988 is a South Korean idol singer and actress who is a member of girl group, After School. Uee debuted with the group in 2009, following on she acted in various dramas including, Queen Seon Duk.
Uee was first slated to debut with a girl group called "Five Girls" ("Oh So Nyuh" in Korean) which included current Wonder Girls member Yubin, current Secret member and leader Hyosung, former T-ara member and current Spica member Yang Jiwon, and current solo artist G.NA. However, the group disbanded right before their scheduled debut in 2007 due to its entertainment company's (Good Entertainment, which included the group Shinhwa) financial troubles. However, after brief hiatus, she reappeared in the TV as a guest in Introducing A Star's Friend as Wonder Girl's Yubin's friend. Because "Five Girls" was not known to many people, she was just regarded as a very pretty friend of Yubin who resembles Wonder Girls youngest member Sohee.
Her father Kim Sung Kap is the third base Coach of South Korean baseball team, Heroes and she was a former swimmer. UEE is currently studying at Sungkyunkwan University.
