Early life and education
Jiwon was raised in Seoul an only child by her father who was a plumber, and her mother who was working at a local supermarket – her parents spent most of their time working to put food on the table, and there was often not enough money for all three of them, which led to Jiwon starting to work as soon as she could, so that she could help her family.
She became interested in singing while attending high school. She was singing around the school when her teacher heard her, and suggested she should attend an audition and very likely pass it – Jiwon didn’t really believe it at first, but after further encouragement, she attended her first audition and passed.
Jiwon still wanted to pursue her college degree, and thus after matriculation in 2006, she enrolled at Dongguk Women’s University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2010.
Jiwon’s singing career – the group T-ara
In 2009 at the age of 21, Jiwon became a member of the girl group T-ara created by MBK Entertainment.
The five girls Jiwon, Jiae, Eunjung, Jiyeon and Hyomin, trained for three years before debuting in April 2009 with their song “Joheun Saram (Ver. 1)”, which then became the soundtrack of the drama “Cinderella Man”. Jiwon and Jiae were removed from the group not long after because they didn’t fit in with the music style of T-ara, and Boram was welcomed into the group – T-ara went on to become one of the most famous girl groups in South Korea, but in 2018 they went on hiatus after a huge bullying scandal.
Jiwon and the group Spica
It was announced in early 2012 that B2M Entertainment would be launching the new girl group Spica, the name is of the brightest star to be found in the Virgo constellation.
The group debuted with their digital single “Doggedly” on 10 January 2012, with girls Jiwon, Park Narae, Park Sihyun, Kim Boa and Kim Bohyung – as this was ‘an informal debut’, they formally debuted with their first extended play (EP), “Russian Roulette”, on 7 February, and to promote it, they sang in the music program “M! Countdown” on 9 February; the repackaged version of the EP was released on 29 March entitled “Painkiller”. On 21 November, Spica released their second EP, “Lonely” with the eponymous lead single, and promoted it in music shows “Inkigayo” and “Music Bank” – “Lonely” went on to reach #8 on the Gaon Weekly Albums Chart.
Throughout the year 2013, the girls collaborated with the musician Lee Hyori, and the hit made in collaboration with her entitled “Tonight” made them very popular in South Korea – it ranked among the top 10 songs on the Gaon Music Chart. On 26 January 2014, the girls released their new single “You Don’t Love Me”, followed by their new song “Witch’s Diary”, the OST for the series “A Witch’s Love”. Their debut English song was released on 6 August entitled “I Did It” and to promote it, Spica performed at KCON in the USA. On 5 November, their new digital single came out entitled “Ghost”.
In March 2015, the girls released their new song “Because of You” which became the original soundtrack (OST) of the TV series “Supper Daddy Yeol”, and in the same month they sang at KCON Abu Dhabi. After over a one year hiatus, Spica released their new single “Secret Time” on 25 August 2016 and then on 4 December performed at The Tokyo Astro Hall. Perhaps unsurprisingly, on 6 February 2017 CJ E&M Entertainment announced that the group had disbanded.
Jiwon and the group Uni. T
It was announced by KBS Entertainment in July 2017 that it would launch a new TV show, and that nine girls would be chosen from the show to form a new girl group – Uni.
T – the show began airing on 28 October 2017 and ended on 10 February 2018.
On 18 May 2018, Jiwon and eight other girls debuted as Uni. T with their EP “Line” and its lead track “No More”. They performed live for the first time six days later at the Dream Concert singing the song “No More”, and they also sang in the music show “Music Bank”. Their second EP “Being with the End” was released on 18 September 2018, together with its title track “I Mean”, and on 12 October, the girls sang their two songs “Being with the End” and “I Mean” in the music program “Music Bank”. Not long after, it was announced that Uni. T had disbanded.
Love life and boyfriend
Since the launch of her singing career back in 2009, Jiwon has kept details of her love life away from the spotlight, as her agencies didn’t allow her nor their other rookie artists to date, because of how this might affect their groups’ popularity. It wasn’t until the group Uni. T disbanded that it was reported how Jiwon was dating a non-celebrity man, and that they’d been together for around two years. Jiwon hasn’t talked about the man, but has stated how she was looking to find a hard-working man who could do the best in his field, which is why most people believe that she has found someone who could provide for the family, but also love her unconditionally.
As of August 2020, Jiwon is in a relationship with this somewhat mysterious man, but hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Jiwon likes to observe people as she walks or while she’s sitting at a park – she is keen on walking along the Han River, as it helps her relax and think about the things that have happened in her life.
She usually listens to music during whatever she is doing, prefering to listen to South Korean artists over American and European.
Jiwon is a very good cook, but likes to cook solely for herself.
She likes to drive her car, and is said to be very good at reverse parking!
