The Grace is a South Korean girl group formed by SM Entertainment in 2005. They debuted on April 29, 2005, with the single “Boomerang”.

They promoted under several different names based on the location for promotion. In Japan, they were known as Tenjochiki (天上智喜 Tenjōchiki). In China, they went with the name Tiān Shàng Zhì Xǐ The Grace, (stylized as TSZX The Grace). And, Cheon Sang Ji Hui Deo Geuleiseu (천상지희 더 그레이스, stylized as CSJH The Grace) in Korea. They debuted in three different countries at once.

Stephanie had a major back injury in 2010, and the remaining three members performed in Seoul’s SM Town Live 10 World Tour. In 2011, they returned with the sub-unit The Grace- Dana&Sunday, and after that, the group did not have many activities due to the members focusing on their individual activities. The group went on hiatus in 2010.

Stephanie then made her official departure from the group in 2016 after her contract with the agency ended. The other members remain in S.M. Entertainment and are busy with their own activities.
