Early life, family and education
Heejin was raised in Seongnam alongside her two older sisters, by their father who is the owner of his own small grocery store, and their mother who works at the very store – the girls’ parents spent most of their time working, thus Heejin was often looked after by her sisters.
The family was rather poor, and as they lived in the countryside, Heejin barely had the money to attend the dancing academy which she began going to when she was around 10 years old.
She continued to pursue her dream of becoming a famous singer and dancer, and focused more on dancing and singing rather than on formal education, which is why after she matriculated from high school in 2018, Heejin didn’t enroll at a college but chose to work on her singing career, and to focus on her group LOONA.
Career as a singer and the group LOONA
On 2 October 2016 it was announced by Blockberry Creative that it would be creating a new girl group which would make its official debut in 2017 –the group’s name would be Idarui Sonyeo, or in English LOONA.
