Yves was born in Busan, South Korea and lived there until moving to Yangsan, South Gyeongsang Province (Gyeongsangnam-do) for elementary school.
She wanted to become a singer since kindergarten. As a kindergartner, Yves would always draw herself dancing and holding a mic in the ‘future dream’ section. Her dreams of singing developed further while watching senior girl-group "Wonder Girls" performing their debut stage "Irony", in 2007. Yves has stated, "I was watching TV and saw these cool unnies in uniforms singing and dancing. You couldn't not fall for them. So I wanted to be a cool singer like them."
With Yangsan being a small town, Yves had to go to Busan if she wanted to enjoy urban amenities such as the cinema and Burger King. Because all the academies were in Busan, she traveled between Yangsan and Busan every day by subway and bus. Her vocal academy was located 2 hours away from home and the dance academy was an hour away.
She joined a dance academy in Busan, "Dance Up Academy". On October 25, 2015, she appeared for the first time on their YouTube channel in "Dance Up Jr : K-Pop Cover Dance" and made several appearances in later videos. She appeared on their YouTube channel for the last time on a choreography video, "Reddy - 생각해 : E:Na Choreography" published on July 15, 2016.
Yves said she joined her high school's dance group secretly because her mother was against it. She studied really hard and ranked #11 in her studies at school , but in Grade 11 revealed her secret to her mother because she really wanted to become a singer.
In 2015, Yves graduated from high school. The message in her yearbook says, "Congrats on graduating", and her contact was left blank.  Korean students usually graduate from high school at the start of the year.
According to fan accounts, she was a trainee under Hunus Entertainment (ELRIS' agency). She trained with ELRIS' Bella and DIA's Eunchae, and apparently almost debuted with Bella. Yves met Bella in 2014/2015 so she may have joined Hunus Entertainment in 2014/2015.
2017: Auditions, Reveal, Debut in LOONA
In 2017, Sooyoung became a fitting model for MariShe. Her pictures were posted on MariShe's website for the first time on May 2nd, 2017.
Working towards her dream to become an idol, Yves heard that one could get into a lot of auditions to become a kpop company's trainee if one attended academies (for singing, dancing acting...). In one of the training academies Yves attended, she met and befriended Chuu, who would also become a member of LOONA and with whom she would film as an extra in a drama (they appeared on the first episode of SBS drama "Part-Time Idol", in the role of fangirls).
The last training academy Yves attended was "Dream Vocal & Dance Academy" (드림보컬&댄스) in Seoul. She was also a part of a dance group at "DPOP Studio", managed by Dream Vocal & Dance Academy. Fellow LOONA member JinSoul also got into Polaris Entertainment through attending that academy one year before in 2016, though they did not meet. One day, Polaris Entertainment came to the academy to hold auditions. That day, Yves was not feeling well and did not want to audition. She stayed in the vocal room but her sister convinced her to still give it a try. A month after the audition, while coming out of an acting lesson at the academy, ready to go home, she was notified at around 11PM by her vocal instructor that a director from BlockBerry Creative (subsidiary of Polaris Entertainment) wanted to see her audition one more time the following day at their headquarter. Yves did not make the first Polaris Entertainment audition but the A&R teams were sharing and reviewing her audition's footage and became interested in her again. She eventually went to the audition even though she had nothing prepared. Despite her audition not being ideal, as she was only notified the night before, she was accepted on the spot after performing a song and an original choreography. They had her freestyle to an ODD EYE CIRCLE song after doubting her freestyling and dancing skills.
On October 24, 2017, a blog posted a congratulatory message for 'Ha Soo Young' for passing Polaris Entertainment's audition. At some point in the latter half of 2017 after September, Yves was accepted as a trainee at Polaris Entertainment.
Similar to other members, she was transferred to BlockBerryCreative at some point in order to become a member. Yves debuted within 34 days of passing auditions. The company had her begin preparing for her debut (song listening, song recording, album jacket filming...) starting from the Friday following the audition. At that time, she didn't know it was a practice for debut. Yves was surprised by how soon her debut would be and how immediately they made her prepare for it. Her mom thought the whole thing was a scam. "Shasha" (샤샤) and "Jelly" (젤리)were candidates for her stage name.
Yves was last seen with the dance group "DPOP Studio" one month before her reveal, when they released a dance cover of TWICE's One More Time (October 18, 2017).
Yves was first teased on November 6, 2017. She released her solo single album Yves on November 28, 2017 and subsequently debuted as a member of LOONA.
The first episode of the SBS drama "Part-Time Idol", in which Yves & Chuu appeared as extras (fangirls) aired on December 12th, 2017.
2018: yyxy, LOONAbirth
Yves later debuted as a member and leader of LOOΠΔ / yyxy with members Chuu, Go Won and Olivia Hye on May 30, 2018 with the mini-album beauty&thebeat. Yves recalled that when she joined the company, they told her that "We are going to make a unit with a tougher concept than Odd Eye Circle, completely girl crush", and told her to look up girlcrush concepts as inspiration, and study materials. It seems like LOONA yyxy had a completely different concept originally.
2019: LOONAVERSE Concert, XX, The Gashinas
During the first day of the LOONAVERSE Concerts, on February 16, 2019, Yves sustained a small injury to her nose due to an accident involving YeoJin. She managed to perform throughout the rest of the concert; and while on the second day she had to refrain from dancing, she still was still allowed to sing. She gave ideas for the choreography of "Satellite"; during the "I’m talkin’ bout you, I’m talkin’ bout you" part.
Yves starred in The Gashinas, a 4-episode television variety show that began airing on May 19, 2019.
2020: # and [12:00]
On February 5, 2020, LOONA's second extended play # was released. Along with HeeJin, Choerry and Olivia Hye, Yves participated in the choreographing of #'s title track "So What" and was credited in the "Choreography idea" section of the credits.
Summer 2020, after the departure of MC Jun, Yves became the co-host of TBS variety show Fact iN Star (팩트인스타 / 팩트iN스타), along with singer-songwriter Yoo Jaehwan (유재환). The show, which invites guests every episode, is uploaded and subtitled in English and some other languages on YouTube.
On October 19, 2020, was released LOONA's mini album [12:00] , including the tracks "Voice" and "Star (Voice Eng. Ver)": Yves gave some inputs in the choreography of "Voice" / "Star" (Yves' dance part with Kim Lip).
In January, Yves participated in the MBC singing competition program "King of Masked Singer", as a contestant called 'Little Yuza Tea' (유자차0); she managed to pass the 1st round.
Mid February 2021, Yves left Fact iN Star as an MC before the show's hiatus and restructuring.
