Early life and education
Yeeun was raised as an only child in Dongducheon by her father, who is a businessman, and her mother who is working as a nurse at a local hospital.
Yeeun became interested in dancing while attending elementary school and asked her parents to enroll her at a dance school – she eventually found herself attending a school for the performing arts at which she learned how to act, dance and sing, while she also practiced rapping with her peers.
She continued to practice singing while attending Seoul Performing Arts High School, and found herself a member of a school band when she was 16 years old – the band lasted for around a year before being disbanded. Yeeun matriculated in 2016 and didn’t enroll at a college but pursued her career as a singer.
Career as a singer and her group CLC
It was announced by Cube Entertainment that in 2015 it would be launching a girl group – CLC, which stands for ‘Crystal Clear’ – and that it would be made up of Yeeun, Eunbin, Elkie, Sorn, Seungyeon, Yujin, and Seunghee – five of the seven girls including Yeeun were back-up dancers of the Canadian singer and actress Gina Jane Choi at the time of the announcement. Before their official debut, the girls performed in the streets, and donated the money gathered to children with disabilities, and this helped them gain recognition even before their official debut.
On 19 March 2015, they released their debut extended play (EP) “First Love”, with the song “Pepe” as its lead track, and to promote it they performed in Seoul at the Acts Hotel.
Shortly after, the girls were invited to compete in the South Korean music competition show “M Countdown”.

The girls performed in Japan for the first time on 13 April and released their debut Japanese EP “High Heels”, made up of Japanese versions of the songs they had previously released. Their fourth EP came out on 30 May called “Nu.Clear” with the song “No Oh Oh” as the lead song, and their second Japanese EP followed on 27 July entitled “Chamisma”, which reached #9 on the Oricon Daily Album Chart.
They started the year 2017 with a fan meeting held at Tokyo’s Tower Records, and on 17 January released their fifth EP “Crystyle” made up of six songs, and with this EP the girls changed their style, which led them to peak at #6 on the Billboard World Album Chart, while the song “Hobgoblin” reached #4 on the World Digital Song Sales Chart.
Another fan meeting called “2017 Cheshire Entrance Ceremony” was held on 27 May at Seoul’s Olympic Hall Muse Live. The girls’ new EP “Free’sm” made up of six songs came out on 3 August, and was mostly inspired by two South Korean girl groups – S.E.S. and Fin.K.L – who performed in the ‘90s. For the lead single of the EP, the girls used the song “Where Are You?”
On 1 February 2018, CLC’s new digital single “To The Sky” came out, promoting their new EP “Black Dress” which was released on 22 February. They held their first solo concert called “Black Dress” on 1 April, and all the money earned was donated to the Diabetes Association.
On 20 July, they held their concert “CLC Live Show in Hong Kong 2018 – Black Dress”, at Macpherson Stadium, and once again a part of their earnings was donated to the Diabetes Association – due to this, on 17 November the girls became ambassadors of the Korea Insulin Dependent Diabetes Association.
CLC released their new EP “No. 1” on 30 January 2019, which reached #5 on the Billboard World Albums Chart with “No” as the lead track – what followed was their participation in the South Korean music competition “The Show” on 12 February, which they won with their song “No”.
