HeeJin (Hangul: 희진) is the first revealed member of LOOΠΔ and a member of its first sub-unit, LOOΠΔ 1/3.

She was born as Jeon Hee Jin (Hangul: 전희진) on October 19, 2000 in Bundang District, Seongnam, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea.

She debuted on September 26, 2016 as a member and subsequently released her solo single album HeeJin on October 5, 2016.

Early lifeEdit

HeeJin was born as Jeon Hee Jin on October 19, 2000 in Bundang District, Seongnam, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. She is the youngest of three daughters in her family.

HeeJin's decision to become a singer occurred in middle school. At one time, both her sisters had similar dreams to hers, but they remained unfulfilled. She has stated that one of the reasons she became a singer was to make her sisters’ unfulfilled dreams come true and has cited her sisters as being her biggest supporters.

In pursuit of her goals, HeeJin traveled long distances in order to attend a dance academy. Her father began discouraging her dreams of becoming a singer after she was rejected at 20 different auditions. However, in 2015 she was cast through social media by BlockBerryCreative and became a trainee. HeeJin trained for 1 year before she was selected to be the first member of the agency's upcoming girl group.[1]

On January 7, 2019, HeeJin graduated from Hansung Girls' High School alongside HyunJin.

HeeJin is the only member to not have a "Who's Next Girl?" teaser image because she is the first member and hence it was not necessary.

In March of 2018 Blockberry Creative announced HeeJin has signed an advertising model contract with Korean cosmetics brand AVAJAR. She advertised the company's products along with Kyulkyung of PRISTIN and Cheng Xiao of WJSN (Cosmic Girls). Shortly afterwards a commercial film featuring HeeJin along with HyunJin, Cheng Xiao, Kyulkyung, and members of Super Junior was released for the brand.[4]

Since 2016 : LOOΠΔEdit

She debuted on September 26, 2016 as a member of girl group LOOΠΔ and subsequently released her solo single album HeeJin on October 5, 2016.

She was later revealed to be a member of its first sub-unit, LOOΠΔ 1/3.
