Departure From SM Entertainment
After almost 10 years as a member of Girls’ Generation, Tiffany decided to leave both the group and SM Entertainment, the agency that she’s been working under since she first debuted in 2007. One of the reasons why she left SM Entertainment was because she wanted the opportunity to pursue her own dream, so she moved back to her hometown, Los Angeles, to study acting and prepare a career as a solo singer.
The singer said that she was trying to get out from her comfort zone, which is why she was pursuing her solo career in Los Angeles. And guess what? Her dream is coming true! Tiffany Young has been one of the best breakthrough solo singers in Los Angeles, even though she started her career as a girl-group member from South Korea.
Debut in U.S
When she decided to move back to L.A., one of the first steps she took was signing a contract with Paradigm Talent Agency in early 2018. After she signed the contract, she released her first U.S single debut, Over My Skin, in June 2018. Watch the video for Over My Skin here:
