MORE ABOUT REFUND SISTERS

Refund Sisters is composed of four members – all highly influential women from the music and entertainment industry. They are Korea’s icon Lee Hyori, famous rapper Jessi, Mamamoo’s youngest member Hwasa, and renown actress Uhm Jung-hwa


The idea started as a joke after Rain suggested it to Hyori during the show Hangout With You. He suggested the group be named ‘Refund Sisters’ because being the famous divas that they were, they would be able to obtain refunds from any store they went to.
