Lady (Hangul: 레이디) was a Korean pop group, noted as the first transgender group from that country. [ [http://english.chosun.com/w21data/html/news/200503/200503270008.html] , "The Chosun Ilbo", 27 March 2005] The band consisted of Sinae, Sahara, Binu and Yuna. According to the official story, they were the best out of hundreds who tried out to be part of this band. Although only three were supposed to be in the group, a fourth was added at the last minute.

Their formation was inspired by the emergence of Harisu, a Korean singer and actress, who is also transgendered. Sinae has previously appeared in commercials with a female dance group as well as a music video by Cho PD, and Sahara is a 2003 beauty pageant winner in Thailand and a former jeans model.

Lady released their first album in 2005, consisting of only a few tracks, with many of them being remixes of their first two singles, "Attention" and "Ladies Night". There was much attention given to them by the press, given their unique status as a transgendered band in a conservative country. [ [http://www.arirang.co.kr/News/News_View.asp?code=Ne8&nseq=32359&category=7] , "Arirang", 26 March 2005] However, they were able to perform on Korean music shows only a handful of times, while their music and videos were not well-received. In order to drum up more publicity, they released a photobook featuring nude shots of all the Lady members; [ [http://english.chosun.com/w21data/html/news/200505/200505290001.html] , "The Chosun Ilbo", 29 May 2005] this also failed to catapult them into stardom, however.

Lady officially disbanded in early 2007. [Chang May Choon, [http://www.asiaone.com/Just%2BWoman/News/Celebrities/Story/A1Story20080131-47571.html Other transsexual celebs in Korea] , "asiaone", January 31, 2008. Retrieved on July 2, 2008.]
