Boram was the first new member to be added to T-ara after two former members, Jiae and Jiwon, quit the group in mid-2009. She was contacted by the CEO of Core Contents Media after he watched a video clip of Boram dancing to BoA's "My Name".

It was announced on July 15, 2010 that she will take over Eunjung's position as the second leader of T-ara, following the addition of new member Hwayoung.[2]
