Early life Edit
Miyeon's passion for music was influenced by her father, who enjoyed music, and listened to various genres of music from a young age. When she became familiar with recording software, she recorded herself singing and showed it to her family and friends. As a result, her family sent her to music academy, where she learned how to play the violin, the guitar and the piano. They also gave her an iPod as a birthday present that included all the songs she liked. During middle school, a friend urged her to audition for the first time. She auditioned and became a trainee at YG Entertainment. She was a trainee at YG Entertainment for 5 years and was scheduled to debut with Black Pink. According to Miyeon, she failed to debut in the end, and she left the company out of frustration. Life outside the company was difficult for her since she spent all of her childhood as a trainee, and she went on a vacation and took some time to look back on herself. Later, she attended a vocal academy to strengthen her vocal skills and took a media class, where she became interested in composing and producing music. On the last day of vocal academy, she scanned the bulletin board and found a flyer to audition at CUBE Entertainment. She felt scared and burdened for someone who already gave up being in a girl group, but thought that there wouldn't be any more opportunities after this. Although she only had a short time to prepare for the audition and felt nervous, she passed the audition and worked really hard as 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.
2016–2018: Pre-debut activities Edit
In February 2016, Miyeon left YG Entertainment. She then became a freelance singer and appeared as an associate singer with Seulong in the Urban Zakapa Canada Tour in September 2016. In early 2017, she became a trainee at Cube Entertainment.
