She debuted as a member of duo vocal group “15&” with the single “I Dream”, which was released on October 5, 2012, and performed on the debut stage on October 7, 2012. She and her partner, Yerin, were 15 years old back when they made their debut, which is how the duo got their name.
Jimin’s Instagram Feeds
Since September 8, 2013, Jimin has maintained a personal Instagram account, at @jamiepark, to greet and share her life wtih her fans. She even confirmed it on her Twitter personal account (@jiminpark07). Before she changed her personal Instagram account to @jiminxjamie, some fans thought it was a BTS’s Jimin’s fans account as they shared the same name.
On November 3, 2018, she shared some photos of her fellow project group members, “M.O.L.A”, through her Instagram account. Just for your information, the name “M.O.L.A” means “I don’t know / Whatever” in Korean. They named it such because they didn’t know what else to name their group, so it became “M.O.L.A”. After they called the group “MOLA”, they decided that it really meant “Makes Our Life Awesome”. The group is made up of several close friends who share the same passion for music, and formed back in 2015 with three members: 15&’s Jimin, UNIQ’s Seungyoun / WOODZ, and Producer Nathan / Lee Kyo-chang. Pentagon’s Kino and SEVENTEEN’s Vernon joined the group later on, as did the sixth member, HOHO Kim, as a musician and guitarist.
She posted a group selfie with her fellow “M.O.L.A” project group members, such as Pentagon’s Kino, Producer Nathan, and UNIQ’s WOODZ, after she finished preparing her 4th song, “Pick Up the Phone (PUTP) (전화받아)”, adding the caption “Where are the other two at?” in a playful manner, referring to SEVENTEEN’s Vernon and Musician HOHO Kim.
On December 13, 2018, she shared a video of having fun while eating an egg with chopsticks. Many of her fans left comments such as “Your face look so cute”, “Cutest” also “You’re so pretty”.
