Childhood and education

Sohee was raised an only child in Busan by her mother who is teaching at a local high school, and her father who is a car salesman.

Sohee was very active in early age as she spent most of her free time outdoors with her peers, playing sports and running around. When she enrolled at Samsung Girls’ High School, she began reading girly magazines and watching K-pop groups perform on TV. She started attending a music school at which she was mostly focused on practicing her vocal skills, while she also practiced dancing and acting. She matriculated in 2013, and then pursued her singing career rather than to enroll at a college.

Sohee’s career and Produce 101

After the show “Produce 101” ended, the final 11 girls went on to debut as the girl group I.O.I, while five out of 90 girls who were eliminated earlier were chosen to form another girl group I.B.I: Sohee, Lee Hae-in, Yoon Chae-kyung, Lee Su-hyun and Han Hye-ri. Before they formally debuted, the girls appeared in the reality TV show “LAN Cable Friend” in June 2016.

I.B.I debuted on 18 August 2016, when they released their digital single album “Molae Molae”, and on the same day performed in the music program “M! Countdown”, followed by their performance in another show, “Music Bank” on the following day.

Sohee went on to launch her career as a solo singer on 8 November 2017, when her debut extended play (EP) entitled “The Fillette” was released, while the song “Sobok Sobok” was its lead single – the EP peaked at #16 on the Gaon Albums Chart.

In the same year, Sohee released her debut digital single, “Sweet Potato x 100”, and was invited to perform original soundtracks (OST) for several TV series, such as “Will You Love Me” for the series “Good Manager”, “Oh! My God!” for the series “Reunited Worlds”, and “Falling You” for the series “Meloholic”. In 2018, she sang the songs “Dreaming Place” for the series “Underdog”, and “Just the Way We Love” for the TV show “King of Mask Singer”.
