Before Jiae became a singer, she led her steps into the acting world first in 2010. At that year, she became a cameo for KBS2’s drama, God of Study.
Not only appearing in the K-drama, but Jiae also made an appearance for a variety show called You’re My Oppa in the same year.
Her career as a K-pop idol then began when she first made an appearance as a soloist in 2013, two years after the leader of Lovelyz, Baby Soul, debuted as a soloist, too.
She presented the 1st single called Delight on April 24, 2013, which became a favorite song for her fans later.
One year later, Woollim Entertainment announced that Jiae will be a part of the new girl group, Lovelyz.
Jiae then debuted alongside Lovelyz on November 12, 2014. The group released Girls’ Invasion, their first album.
