Debut with Oh My Girl

Oh My Girl Debut

JinE made her debut with Oh My Girl back in 2015. At that time, Oh My Girl was publicized as the sister group of B1A4. On April 20th, 2015, Oh My Girl released their first mini-album titled Oh My Girl, which also contains their single titled “Cupid.” At the same day, Oh My Girl also held their debut showcase. On October 7th, the group released their second mini-album titled Closer.

On December 11th, Oh My Girl flew to Los Angeles for a photo shoot for their next album jacket and to perform at a special event, but could not get cleared by customs to enter the U.S. The group’s management claimed that customs mistook the girls for underage prostitutes due to props and outfits for their special performance and that they were detained for 15 hours, but later it turned out that management was lying about the reason for being denied entry.

Upon seeing the contents of Oh My Girl’s luggage, customs officials determined that the group was entering the U.S. to perform, not to go sightseeing as the group had claimed. And so, they weren’t able to enter as they did not have the P1 performance visa. The customs official also denied that the group was “detained” for 15 hours, noting that they were put on the first available flight back to Korea on the airline they traveled with.
