Childhood and education
Jeon was raised alongside her brother in South Korea by her middle-class working parents – her father is working at an insurance company, while her mother is a secretary. Jeon and her brother are very different and thus grew up not being very close to each other.
Jeon became interested in music at a very early age, as her mother would often watch music shows on TV – she started practicing singing while attending elementary school, and at the same time was interested in acting and dancing.

She attended Chungdam High School where she met Jihyo, who is today a member of the girl group TWICE and it was while at Chungdam that Jeon was noticed by a scout, and later signed a contract with FNC. She trained under them for five years before switching to DSP Media, and launching her career with KARD just two months later.
Jeon matriculated from Chungdam in 2015, and then chose to focus on singing rather than on pursuing a college degree.
Singing career and the band KARD
The co-ed group KARD debuted on 19 July 2017, made up of Jeon, J. Seph, BM and Somin – all members but Jeon had already launched their careers as singers by the time KARD was created.
Somin was a member of the girl group Puretty that was based in Japan, but it disbanded in 2014 two years after it was founded – she went on to join the South Korean reality TV show “Kara Project” in which she placed second, and thus became a member of another DSP Media group “April”, but decided to leave the group on 9 November 2015. J. Seph was signed to DSP Media for five years before joining KARD, while BM was ‘on the books’ for 4.5 years – the two were initially meant to become a hip hop duo, but DSP Media changed their plans. BM can also be seen featured in the song “La La La” by Goo Ha-ra, while he also danced in her music video “Choco Chip Cookies”.

Love life and boyfriend
Jeon hasn’t commented about any boys she might have dated since the launch of her group KARD, but there are rumors circulating the internet that she might be in a secret relationship with J. Seph.
The two are very close, but what motivated people to start the rumors about their relationship is that they played two lovers in their music video “You In Me”. They also posed together for the “Hola Hola” mini-album photoshoot, and it seemed to their fans that there was something bigger than ‘just friends’ going on between the two – however, neither Jeon nor J. Seph have confirmed the rumors, but have rather claimed that they are only good friends.
Another rumor has it that Jeon was once in a long-term relationship with a boy whom she met at a party before she launched her singing career, and that the two dated for around a year and a half before splitting in 2016. As of August 2020, she is single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Jeon likes to do whatever she feels likes doing, which is why she once did eight ear piercings in a single day – four on each ear.
She is a lover of animals with dogs and wolves being her favorites. She has a pet dog which she named Tani – during her childhood, she spent a lot of time volunteering at a local animal shelter.
According to J. Seph, Jeon is a very good liar which is why she would make a good spy,also but she’s very sociable, and some of her closest friends include all members of the boy group SF9, and Bit-to, who is a member of the boy group Up10tion – she is also close to Mimi from the group Gugudan, and Doha who is singing for the group Boys24.
