Kim Hyun-A of the group 4Minute is the latest K-pop star to appear on the U.S. comedy website Funny or Die, local media reported yesterday.

“Hyun-A was in Los Angeles filming for the website with singer Rita Ora,” said an official from Kim’s agency, Cube Entertainment. “If you are curious about what she filmed with Ora, you can check it out on the website.”
