Kim Ah Young, better known by her stage name Yu Ra, is a South Korean idol singer and actress. She is a member and main rapper of the girl group, Girl's Day. She had attended Ulsan Art High School, where she served as a dance major. Yu Ra is currently attending Dongduk Women's University, alongside fellow group member Min Ah.
In 2010, Yu Ra became one of the official members of the Korean pop group Girl's Day, where she and Lee Hye Ri replaced two of the former members, Ji In and Ji Sun, who left after having been with the group for two months. She served as the main rapper of the group, as well as being one of the sub-vocalists.
In 2012, Yu Ra made her acting debut when she was cast a role on Sohu TV's Chinese drama "Secret Angel", where she played the role of Yu Bin. She then collaborated with her label-mate Jevice with their single "I Want to Love Now".
In 2014, Yu Ra starred in the music video of Wheesung's "Night and Day" along with C.A.P of Teen Top. She then became one of the official couples for the variety show "We Got Married", where she was paired with model turned actor Hong Jong Hyun.
On November 8, 2010, Yu Ra's ex-management company "Action Music Entertainment" sued Yu Ra for breaking her contract with their company. Yu Ra was supposed to become a member of 4 girl group under "Action Music Entertainment", prior to joining "Girl's Day". The 4 member girl group under "Action Music Entertainment" was then halted indefinitely. According to Yu Ra's side, she was not supported by "Action Music Entertainment" and through due process her contract was canceled. The lawsuit became messy with "Action Music Entertainment" insisting they had a video of Yu Ra's unacceptable behavior. On January 20, 2011, the court ruled in Yura's favor.
