T-ARA’s Boram’s Pre-debut Story

t ara boram profile

Bo-ram is a girl born to three generations that come from a family who worked as celebrities. Bo-ram is the daughter of a singer and movie star, Jeon Young-rok. Her father Jeon Young-rok remarried after the divorce, so she has two more half-brothers. However, since her siblings are younger, they are less exposed to the public.

Bo-ram’s grandfather is Hwanghae (real name is Jeon Hong-gu, born in 1920 and died in 2005), and her grandmother is Baek Seol-hee (real name is Kim Hee-suk), who was popular for her acting career in the 1950s and 1960s. Bo-ram’s mother is also a talented actress, Lee Mi-young, and her uncle is Lee Chang-hoon, a comedian famous for Maeng-gu.

For reference, Bo-ram herself is the eldest daughter and has Jeon Woo-ram as her younger sister. Jeon Woo-ram also works under the stage name of D-Unit’s RAM, but is currently vocalizing under the stage name Rami in the band FIVE RUN STRIKE. Additionally, although she is not a well-known celebrity, she also has two younger brothers. The first brother is Jeon Yoo-bin, and the second younger brother is Jeon Hyo-bin. Thanks to this background, media exposure was the most frequent at the beginning of T-ARA’s debut.

Like Qri, she was a member who had the worst singing ability. Because of this, in some songs of the group, she didn’t have parts at all, and in most of the other songs, she had very few parts. On MBC’s Video Star, Bo-ram said that she is a dancer and wearing a microphone is embarrassing. But still, her father and grandmother are singers in the family and since she was planned to debut as a singer before joining T-ARA, her singing skills have gradually improved compared to other sub-vocalists, such as Qri.

Before joining Core Contents Media and becoming a member of T-ARA, Bo-ram was a student of Myongji University, majoring in Theater and Visual Arts, along with her age friend who was also a T-ARA member, Qri. In 2008, exactly one year before T-ARA was formed, Bo-ram released the song “From Memory” as part of the album of the same title and “Is It Today” as part of the album Lucifer Project Vol 1 as the two debut songs.
