Miyeon (미연) also known as Cho Mi Yeon (조미연) is a South Korean singer under Cube Entertainment. She is the main vocalist of the South Korean girl group (G)I-DLE. She is the oldest member.

Early Life Edit

Miyeon was influenced by her father who enjoyed music. She listened to various types of music since she was young. That's how her interest in music began and once she got to know computer programmes, she tried recording by herself. She made some records and showed it to her family and friends. After this, she learned how to play the violin and piano. Her parents saw how much she loves singing and made her learn this and that about music. Also, they gave her an iPod as a birthday present where all the songs she likes played[1]. As she went to middle school, she went on her first audition by her friend's recommendation to challenge her dream. So, she became a trainee of YG Entertainment by 5 years but when her debut didn't happen, she left the company. Life outside the company was difficult for her since she spent all her childhood as a trainee. After this, she took some time to look back on herself. Then, she attended a vocal academy to strengthen her vocal skills and took classes about composing and producing music. There were invitations/chances for her to audition in other companies but felt scared and burdened for someone who already gave up being in a girl group. She thought there will no more opportunities for her but there was Cube. She then auditioned where she had a short time to prepare and felt nervous while auditioning. She passed the audition and worked really hard whilst being a trainee. She became happy because she could now sing and dance as she had in the past. Now, she has finally debuted alongside the other (G)I-DLE members.
