She was born as Jung Jin-Sol (Hangul: 정진솔) on June 13, 1997 in Seoul, South Korea.
She debuted on June 13, 2017 as a member and subsequently released her solo single album JinSoul on June 26, 2017.
Early life (1997–2017)Edit
JinSoul was born on June 13, 1997, as the youngest of two siblings. She has one older brother. Although she claims to have had trouble studying, JinSoul at one point ranked 19th in math in her entire high school. She initially wanted to pursue a university degree in science, but her mother convinced her to become a humanities major.
JinSoul was a student at BORN Star Training Center in 2014. She performed a cover of Ailee’s “U&I” and a medley of g.o.d songs at their 12th annual concert. In September of 2014, she passed her audition for DSP Media and became a trainee there.
JinSoul auditioned for many agencies on her quest to become an idol. Despite finding multiple opportunities through street castings, none followed through. However, sometime in 2016, JinSoul was contacted over Instagram by Polaris-BlockBerry, and became a trainee at Polaris Entertainment through Dream Vocal & Dance Academy. She would later transfer to BlockBerry Creative and train to become a member of LOONA.
2017: “Everyday I Need You”, reveal, solo debut, Woomanna, ODD EYE CIRCLEEdit
JinSoul was first teased as a member of LOONA after featuring on ViVi’s “Everyday I Need You”, the B-side of her solo album. Nicknamed the infamous “one-second-girl” for her brief cameo in the music video, fans of the group went wild with speculation about JinSoul’s identity, since LOONA 1/3 was the only sub-unit at the time.
It was assumed that JinSoul would be the next member of LOONA, revealed in a similar style as ViVi—first being featured in “Love & Live” and later having her solo release. When the fifth “Who’s Next Girl?” teaser was released, most fans expected the girl to be JinSoul, but were surprised when the member was revealed as Kim Lip.
About a month later, on June 8, the sixth “Who’s Next Girl?” teasers were posted: a blue and a black version, a first for LOONA and representative of JinSoul’s dual representative colors. On June 13, JinSoul was officially revealed as the seventh member of LOONA. Her single was released on June 26, 2017, with the title track “Singing in the Rain” quickly becoming LOONA’s most viewed music video at the time.
JinSoul was featured in a small role on seasons 1 and 2 of the web drama Woomanna as a university student.
2018: Debut in LOONA, Woomanna Edit
From February to March of 2018, JinSoul starred alongside fellow ODD EYE CIRCLE members Kim Lip and Choerry in the third season of Woomanna. She played a university dance major who is cheated on by her boyfriend of six years.
