In March 2011, Hyolyn was a guest on Strong Heart where she revealed that she was born prematurely and weighed in at 4.2 kg (about 9 lbs) at birth. During her mother's pregnancy, water had filled Hyolyn's stomach, which led her to be prematurely born. Bile was unable to be passed through her intestines, which eventually damaged her liver, causing a biliary atresia. Although the required surgery had low chances of sustaining life, Hyolyn was able to survive the 10-hour long surgery.
A year later, however, she was diagnosed with intussusception (a medical condition where parts of the intestine folds over into another section of the intestine) and received surgery for enterectomy.
Hyolyn auditioned for JYPE two times, and was finally accepted at the second try placing 1st place at the audition. She was set to debut in a project group with Secret's Jieun and Bestie's Uji but plans fell. Hyolyn then left JYPE and joined Starship Entertainment, auditioning with a cover of Christina Aguilera's Hurt.
In early 2011, Hyolyn and group member Bora formed as a sub-group Sistar19 with the single "Ma Boy". Hyolyn had the chance to participate in the newly formed variety show "Immortal Song 2" on June. She won the first episode and received immediate attention and public love for her voice. Her new-found popularity helped spread Sistar's name to the public. Due to her great vocal ability and stage presence on the show and other variety programs, she has been labeled as the Korean Beyoncé by some singers within country. She participated in the show from June until September.
On October 17, she released the single "Ma Boy 2", featuring Electroboyz.
As an MBC 2012 Lunar Year special, the variety show We Got Married spin-off "Pit-a-Pat Shake" aired its pilot episode featuring virtual idol couples experiencing dating life. Hyolyn's partner was revealed to be Super Junior's Sungmin. In the pilot, Sungmin and Hyolyn performed traditional Korean opera.
Hyolyn started her solo debut in November 2013, with two title tracks Lonely and One Way Love taking the top spot on all major music charts in Korea. The songs from her album Love and Hate charted in the top 10 on music charts Bugs and Soribada. One Way Love charted number 1 on all 10 music charts in Korea. The album consists of tracks from notable producers, including Brave Brothers and Kim Do Hoon, and features Korean rappers such as Mad Clown, Block B's Zico, Dok2 and Geeks' Lil' Boy.
On the 26th of November, Hyolyn held a successful media showcase in celebration of the release of her solo album at Seoul Ilchi Art Hall. She held a stage on an Mnet Exclusive Special titled 'Hyolyn's Love and Hate' on the 28th of November 11pm (KST) in which she performed songs from the album as well as popular Sistar tracks with her group members.
On December 31, 2013 Hyolyn's music video for the Korean version of "Let It Go" for Disney's animation movie Frozen was revealed. Hyolyn said, “I’m happy to be taking part in making a Disney movie as a Korean representative, which I’ve always enjoyed watching. I am honored that I’ll be the second Korean singer to take part in Disney production, following Park Jung Hyun, who sang Reflection for Mulan.”
On January 22, 2014 Hyolyn released an OST for the drama My Love from the Star called "Goodbye". Immediately after it hit stores, "Goodbye" made an all-kill on the major real-time music charts. The song, an uptempo pop ballad with a simple melody written by hit OST producer Choi Jae Woo, was first revealed during Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun's kiss scene.
On March 28, 2014, Starship Entertainment announced on their Twitter account that Hyolyn would feature in Mad Clown's comeback track, "Without You". The music video for "Without You" was released on April 3, 2014, topping major real-time music charts.
