Elris’ Sohee’s Pre-Debut
Way before Sohee debuted in Elris as the leader, she was just a small girl from a district in Incheon called Michuhol. Sohee lived with her parents and her older sister. From elementary school until high school, Sohee spent her childhood to her teenage life in her hometown.
But, things changed when Sohee joined a survival program from SBS in 2016. The show was called K-Pop Star Season 6: The Last Chance. Just like the name, this is the last season of the show which had been airing since 2011. If you know American Idol or The Voice, K-Pop Star is just like those shows. Sometimes, K-Pop Star‘s contestants become a K-pop idol and get recruited by some agencies after the show.
As this was the last chance for Sohee, she was brave enough to leave her hometown for Seoul and participated in the program before the season ended. Thankfully, Sohee passed the audition. She even made it to the top 8.
In the show, she performed some songs from various musicians with other contestants. And, Sohee did it all so well. Let’s see some of Sohee’s performances while she was on K-Pop Star Season 6.
Sohee who was only 17 years old or 18 years old in the Korean age system at that time showed us her best! Her vocals were so great even at her young age. Sohee’s amazing performances throughout the show led to her being accepted as a JYP Entertainment trainee. Congrats!
Sohee’s Debut with Elris
Although when Sohee joined K-Pop Star Season 6, she was accepted as JYP Entertainment’s trainee, Sohee moved to Hunus Entertainment. As you may know, moving from one company to another is such a normal thing in the K-pop industry. The good thing is that Sohee didn’t need to wait a long time to be a trainee like some other idols.
On June 1, 2017, Sohee made her debut in Elris under Hunus Entertainment. It was only several months after K-Pop Star Season 6 ended. Congrats, Sohee!
Elris made its debut with five members who are Sohee as the leader, Yukyung, Garin who was also a contestant in K-Pop Star Season 6, Hyeseong, and Bella. The girls officially debuted by releasing their first title track called “We, First” on the mini-album with the same title.
