Choa debuted as AOA in 2012 and was active until June 2017. She was the oldest sister in the team and the main vocalist who helped promote AOA’s name. She stopped working in the entertainment industry due to depression and insomnia, and spent a long time recovering.

The idol returned to the K-Pop scene three years after leaving AOA, as she participated in singing the OST of KBS 2TV’s Monday-Tuesday drama ‘To All The Guys Who Loved Me’.

Kim Young Sun, CEO of Great M, said, “We are looking forward to working with Choa in the future based on the relationship we have discovered and planned.”
