On July 24th, 2012, she debuted as a member of the six-member girl group Tahiti with the single “Tonight”. Her position at the time was lead vocal. After the release of “Five Beats Of Hearts” as their comeback, the leader and eldest member, Jungbin, left the group and Minjae became the second leader.

Actually, the eldest member in the group was TAHITI’s Miso, who was born 4 months earlier than her, but since she was a member who joined after debut and a member of the original line-up was still active, it seems that Minjae would have a big opportunity to become the second leader.
