Kwon studied both in Wonmyong and Yangji Elementary Schools, and. for her secondary education she attended Onham Middle School, then enrolled in Hanlim Multi Art School, from where she presumably matriculated in 2017.
Eunbin joined Cube Entertainment as a trainee in 2014 while still in high school. Although she was scheduled to join the girl group CLC in 2016, problems regarding the release of their first album postponed her debut, so the agency decided Eunbin along (G)I-DLE Jeon Soyeon’s and former trainee Lee Yoon-Seo, would be representing the company in the first season of “Produce 101”, a survival TV show in which contestants prove their dancing and singing skills in order to be selected to join a K-pop group.

In the second episode, the contestants were informed of an upcoming performance of the song “Pick Me” in the music show “M Countdown” . However, Eunbin had various problems remembering the choreography, and her voice cracked during her vocal practice.
She also obtained negative reviews regarding her video practicing the song, which distressed her deeply: ‘Nobody was applauding. It was honestly a scary situation’. Due to her poor presentation, she was placed in the D group.
In the third episode, each group – A, B, C and D – were given various songs to perform, and members’ positions were assigned. Although Eunbin was meant to take the center role during the performance of the song “I Don’t Know” by A-pink, she was unable to do it as she was shadowed by another contestant: ‘From the start, the atmosphere had shown that Pinky was the center’.
